SUGGESTED USE FOR EARNED RUNS BIBS COMING SOON.
If you haven't been able to register for an organized race this spring there are still many opportunities to energize your running season. When you cannot seem to muster the effort to train for a specific race or distance there are other ways to motivate yourself and others in the same rut. Here's a suggestion form Earned Runs. Pull your bib from the drawer, Write down the event and date. Pin it on or fold it in a pocket. Get out the door.
APRIL FOOL’S DAY NO FOOLING 50 (any distance)
Demonstrate that you’re no fool. Get out on this day and test your resolve not to be silly about health. Run a serious 50 MINUTE Fartlek.
Swedish for "speed play", this workout alternates running speeds/efforts. "Unlike tempo and interval work, fartlek is unstructured and alternates moderate-to-hard efforts with easy throughout. After a warmup, you play with speed by running at faster efforts for short periods of time (to that tree, to the sign) followed by easy-effort running to recover" says Runner's World.
Walkers can mix-up their effort as well in a fartlek.

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
