Key Basic Stretches for Runners
Cannot stress how important stretching is!!
An ongoing series of lessons learned through the preparation for and completion of 39.3 miles over two days
3. Have the right goals.
If you know yourself, and you’re training regularly, you can set goals that are challenging yet still achievable. I realized that “Finish The Goofy Without Getting Swept And Without Injuring Myself” was a smart goal for me based on where my fitness level was as I began. It required me to commit to the long training runs but didn’t cause me to get discouraged when I felt “slow.”
And a nice offshoot? While I’ve never before trained to get a PR (personal record) for time, the Goofy training got me in good enough shape that my next goal is to set a personal record in my next half marathon.
The first three lessons were all intimately related for me. Can’t set goals without knowing myself. Can’t truly know myself without the training experience. Need to know the goal to determine the training plan.
On a (somewhat) related note, I just signed up for Graze. You get a box of healthy snacks delivered to your office every week for just $5, which is pretty incredible (at least by New York standards).
If you wanna give it a try, you can get your first box free by using the code: 7FHTTNZ
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH This has been in the UK for a few years and I am obsessed with it - I start and stop my deliveries each time I am over there and cannot believe I missed a US launch. Get involved team, get involved.
Just signed up. Ended up getting the lightbox… We’ll see how long that lasts.
Love this idea.
