Got another #PR today, for a #10K this time. Two PRs in a few days feels great but ultimately I have thanks to God for giving me the ability to get here. I’ve also been making it a point of trying to spend time during my runs with Him. #HWI #HessLakeRun #Run4Water #training #GRMarathon
It didn’t work out to get my run in this morning so I headed out tonight, but it sure was a challenge running into some of those 25+ mile/hour wind gusts. #HWI #Run4Water #GroundhogMarathon #Garmin #Running
Looking forward to the week ahead. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
There is a reason the saying goes that “life is like a marathon, not a sprint” and it has to do with going the distance. Getting back to the basics of marathon training means focusing on slowing down and building up the endurance needed to finish well. If I’ve learned anything from this past year of training it’s that I lost sight of this fundamental part of training. If I have any hope of finishing well at the upcoming Groundhog Marathon I need to keep focus on that key piece of my training. Today I tried to keep that focus though I still finished with a much faster pace than my training plan directed. I’ll be working on that more in the weeks to come….
It’s been more of a challenge to get these posts out soon after my run. I’m still going after those miles and trying to keep people aware of the great need for clean water there still is in our world. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon #RiverBankRun Give a matching gift for clean water: https://timn.me/2020HWI
I couldn’t do another day of just walking. I did my best to keep it a slow jog. I also continued to use the slower pace to have some good one-on-one time with God and pray for friends and family that I know need support for the things they are going through right now. As I continue to recover and work my way into a normal running routine again I need to keep working on where my focus is as I run. I’m thankful for how my recovery is going, and also thankful for the opportunity to see my running from a different perspective. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon
