...Take a poll if you will
Who thinks this statement is true? Beginner, intermediate, and advanced runner means slow, moderate, and fast respecively. In other words is ability as a runner based on pace?
If you're having trouble with that question, how about this one. When Lance Armstrong arrived at the starting line of the New York marathon last year, did you consider him a beginner, intermediate, or advanced runner?
Here's another one. If you were the director of a new marathon training program, and you had to divide participants up by ability, how would you do it?
I'll answer after some feedback.
