The Best Track and Field Blogs

It’s been two and a half years since I started writing about my training on this thing called the interweb. Since then, many other track and field athletes have also started their own websites. Now, there are so many blogs that it can be hard to decide which ones are worth the read. Some are updated often and some rarely. Some provide a superficial look at the athlete, while others are more personal or contain detailed accounts of training. Below is a collection of my favorite sites across all the events. If I leave out any great blogs, feel free to add them in the comments below.

    I noticed one of your training partners commented on Kamloops. I recently ran the World Masters Indoors there in my first indoors and was wondering how this compared to other indoor tracks?

      Most indoor tracks are banked, so Kamloops is different because it is flat. The surface is also not quite as nice as the best facilities. However, for throws training, it is top notch.

    Martin, so if Kamloops is flat, it must be a larger track, with turns not as sharp. Do you know the lap distance?

    You mentioned the surface is not as nice as other facilities, because it’s older or not the quality?

      The track is still the same length. Although thankfully there have been no professional meets here. Running fast corners without banked curves would be more of a problem for Usain Bolt that for the youth meets they have or for World Masters. I heard complaints before the World Masters meet, but not a ton after.

      The surface is just a regular track surface similar to many high schools. It is not Mondo or something extra special. The track is new, only a few years old. In my opinion, they should have spent the extra money to get a nicer surface that would have lasted longer.
