Speed is something that is very misunderstood in the endurance world. We use the term "speed work" to mean anything from short sprints to 10k paced intervals.

Are you coming down to Atlas Race in San Antonio this weekend? Probably not, I hear they’re going to go under soon. They have a short course competition after the main race. I’ll be there!
