Just finished one of my favorite races. I must admit, it took all I had to get out of bed for this one. I was dead tired. I'm talking a long work week, a couple of late night projects and an active pre-teen to match wits with. One hour before race time, I'm in bed trying to convince myself that I'm to tired and that if I go, I would surly collapse and die. We all have those moments right? That's when we dig down deep and come up with the reason to put on our running shoes. That reason my friend is universal. " I'm a runner and that's what I do." I was out of bed in a flash, I lined up and gave it my best. It wasn't my best run or my best time, but I kept it moving. But more importantly, I didn't die! See you at the next one! Until next time, stay safe.
To step up your game, strap on a weight vest and run as fast as you can for an hour. If it's your first outing in one, try the run-walk method. Remember this is not the thing to do if you have joint or back problems. Be smart. This type of training isn't for most runner.
Some extra pounds aren't that bad for you! Until next time, stay safe
