That is the best way to describe last week. Between work, kids, sporting events, and appointments, it is nothing short of amazing that I was still able to get in all of my workouts.
I'm feeling good about my running base - my average run distance is 6 miles. It's the long runs that always worry me. I have a tendency to go out too fast and run out of steam at the end. My goal is to train better so that I can finish stronger and feeling good. I'm planning to try some of the workouts mentioned in this Runner's World article.
#TrainingTruth: I'm never too busy to run!
Thursday: 6 mild miles. Sidewalks were in better shape and the mild 40 degree temperatures were helping. It was a capris day, but my shoes still ended up soggy from the slushy puddles along the route.
How do you train for a strong finish?
#TrainingTruths is not just about me. We all like to see what everyone else is doing and use that information to assess ourselves. It's not judgement. It's a way to share and learn and make changes when necessary.
To participate all you have to do is share your #TrainingTruths:
