My Topic today is: Double Digit Long Runs
Ok, so there are NO races.
Time to slow down, right? Run fewer miles. Take it easy.
Yes, if you are injured.
But, NO, not necessarily.
Here’s why it’s good to run at least 10 miles on the weekend:
- You’ve got the time.
No social events. Not much else to do. Can’t say that you are too busy.
- Burn off those extra pounds/calories.
Working from home does get you sitting around more. No evening social events may have you watching more TV.
Let’s not forget it’s summer….ICE CREAM!!
- Virtual Races and Challenges.
No races but there are still things to sign up for. These long runs will help you meet your mileage/step quota.
- What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger
It’s cliche but we all know it’s true.
Yes, your legs will thank you (when you’re done.)
- More Miles = Less Speed
If you run longer, you’ll worry less about pace.
All you have to worry about is finishing…
- It’s All About That Base.
Races will happen eventually. Not sure when.
Maybe some of you will get to run one this fall.
No one likes to start all over.
And with 10 miles under your belt, you CAN even run a half marathon.
