It seems most of us here prefer road running/cross country, but I was wondering if many of you also go to the track on occasion. I've always wanted to get back on a track (when I was a teenager I much preferred track to cross country), but not sure I want to spend the money on spikes and risk injury by not recognising the differences. Also, I'm curious to know if people tend to run faster times on a track. I'm not someone who easily gets bored running in circles etc. I generally run the same route on the roads week in week out. I like the consistency. Anyway, anyone's thoughts on track running would be appreciated. I'm guessing it would be really good for interval training, since its easier to keep note of distances etc.
