Often running long distances challenges not just your physical endurance but also your mental ability to tackle those long hours.
Although your long distance pace is a slow one (make sure it is), it also requires you to run with your mind.
If you think a run is tough, you’ll actually find it tougher.
Before you start your run visualize all the good things possible and think about finishing strong. And you know what? You will.
So go have a great long run 👍🏼
Stay hydrated and please do not (never-never) skip your post-run stretches.
Happy Running ☺️
I am addicted to just one thing in life i.e. to the feelings associated with the end of a long run.
I love feeling empty, clean, worn-out, and sweat-purged. Love the good ache of the muscles that have done me proud.
In the last couple of years running has become my meditation, mind flush, cosmic telephone, mood elevator and a lot more.
Also, remember, this feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around and wishing you were fit.
So get up and get running. 😊☺️
Thank you Tata Mumbai Marathon ! #TMM2018
There is nothing like kicking off this New Year with the NYRR Virtual Resolution Run 5K!
I completed this 5K run in 22 minutes and 17 seconds clocking my Personal Best 5K ever! There were around 4273 participants out of which 2678 were able to finish this challenge.
For the first two weeks in January, I had an opportunity to pick a time and place convenient to me, make a resolution to run, and complete this 5K virtual run!
The purpose of this mission is that not only will you feel good beginning the year with a healthy running start, but you’ll do good as well.
Proceeds from this NYRR Virtual Racing support NYRR’s mission to help and inspire people through running and benefit NYRR’s youth and community programs.
Kudos to NYRR and Strava for bringing in a Healthy New Year!
After completing 70 training sessions in the last 16 weeks I feel strong 💪🏻, confident 😎 and happy 😃
I started my training in the month of October, working on a sub 03:40 marathon. The journey since then has been challenging and my results exceptional. 🤩🤩🤩 I have worked really hard on my running form, pace and endurance and I feel proud about it. 😬
With just one week to go for Tata Mumbai Marathon, 2018; I have butterflies 🦋 in my stomach, my mind wanders 🙄 and I’m feeling the nerves. 🤭
However, I know one thing for sure, no matter what happens, I’ll put my best and enjoy the run. I will make sure I smile all the way to the finish line.
Wishing you ALL THE RUNNERS very BEST. Do well. Finish strong. 🤞🏼🤗
Recovery days are just as important as training days. After you workout, your body begins to rebuild, getting fitter and stronger. Active recovery works best for your joints and muscles, so move around and stay loose.
Make New Year’s goals but don’t forget to celebrate your success.
