I don’t plug many things or get off topic from running related content much, but I figured a plug for my Brother’s new book can be the exception.  Just in case any of you runners out there are History buffs or like reading about Abraham Lincoln, my brother has a new book book coming out soon that brings a lot of new information to the Abraham Lincoln Saga.  In particular, he found out that Lincoln was working on a plan to ship slaves to South America during/after the Civil War.  You can read more about it more in the articles from the Washington Times and the London Daily Telegraph below.

    Looks good.

    A little bit off topic but I attempted a alternation workout which you have suggested of 6 x 600m @ 5k pace / 600m @ steady (MP)with during the specific period of my training. The workout was tough but enjoyable – first time i did something like this. Can i ask what are the main reasons / benefits for this type of workout compared to the orginal specific workout of 5 x 1k @ 5k pace.

    thank you

    chris
