TrainingTruth: Running gives you freedom
FRI: I don't usually run two days in a row (I fear injury), but with an unexpected snow day, I couldn't resist. This gave me a chance to catch up on the miles I lost at the beginning of the week. Since there was a snow storm going on, I choose the treadmill again and just ran. I didn't go with a planned distance or pace or workout. I just ran. When I felt like stopping, I did.
SUN: We pushed our Saturday long run to Sunday. This was our final long run before the NYC Half Marathon. Since Central Park has hills, lots of rolling hills, we chose a long route that also had some hills. It felt really good to get back outside. I was worried about how my legs would feel, but my conservative approach to hills seems to be working. I still get winded, but my legs are holding up better.
Since we're talking hills, I saw this on Pinterest.
Which reminded me of this tweet.
Don't think of them as hills, think of them as "mounds of opportunity." #TrainingTruths— Amy C. (@RunningEscapade) November 18, 2012
What does running give you?
#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:
- Tag a Twitter post with the hashtag #TrainingTruths
- Comment on the Running Escapades Facebook page
- Leave a link to your own blog post in the comments
I look forward to reading your #TrainingTruths!
