#TrainingTruths: RTB Lessons + GIVEAWAY

Last week was busy leading up to the Reach the Beach Relay. With my new running schedule, I was able to get in one last run before hopping into the van and heading up to Cannon Mountain where all the relay running brilliance began. A full RTB Relay recap is in the works, but today is all about my RTB lessons! 




#TrainingTruth: You can't fully pack for RTB until the last run is done.


#TrainingTruth: Starting out too fast leads to a fizzle in the end.




#TrainingTruth: Pacing can be found in other runners, music, and yourself.




#TrainingTruth: It's ok to be passed by 6 other runners, if you're still running.



As you can see, I never go for a run without my Mizunos. They are one of my running must haves. And you may remember from this post all the reasons why they are my go-to running shoe. 

There is no better feeling than not having to think about what you are going to put on your feet. Whether you run on the road, the treadmill, or the trail, Mizuno wants you to become the best runner you can be and experience the brilliance of a Mizuno run. 

Lucky for you, they have asked me to give away 10 Mezamashii Run Project  invitations!!

  1. My #TrainingTruth is to embrace rest days! You only get stronger and faster if you let your muscles recover and rebuild. I know it's hard to allow yourself to rest, but it's so important!

  11. Congrats!!!! Training Truth - recovery runs are not meant to be speedy. Let go of the speed on that run and just go. Best to go without your garmin as well....or any other device. Just relax. It's taken me FOREVER to get this down!
