Since today is Tuesday, I’m linking up with these wonderful ladies:
Today’s Topic is: Tell us something new you learned about running in 2016
Well, I learned a few things.
- Carpe Diem
Yes, Seize the Day. I got spoiled with the amount of time off (and the salary) that was afforded me with my last job.
I am glad that I took those race-cations because they won’t be as frequent in the future.
You have to take advantage of those opportunities because you don’t know when they will disappear. (This applies to good health as well as free time.)
- I can still get faster.
That 5k PR still stands from 2014 but I shocked myself with a half marathon PR. So I’m not giving up the idea of getting one for the 5k, 10k and 15k …YET.
- Running is better with others.
It is easier to schedule your running when you run alone. I did that for most of my week day runs last year. However, you run better/faster if you run with someone else and it’s more enjoyable so you may run longer.
I guess that’s why I race so much but this year, in addition to Judy, I have found two more running partners.Happy Running! What did you learn about running this past year?
