THIS IS YOUR LONGEST RUN; THE ONE IN WHICH YOU PROVE TO YOURSELF that you CAN MAKE IT! And even make a bit more that half marathon distance. After this comes the taper, which many runners find to be the MOST DIFFICULT part of training. More discussion about that next week. Remember to plant water bottles along your course or carry some with you if it's comfortable. Bring some energy "fuel" with you like gel or chews. There will be a post on fueling this week. It isn't quite as essential to get this right for a half marathon, especially if your pace allows you to finish in under 2 hours. Have a great time this week!!! TAKE PRIDE IN THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT.
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.
