I liked this little basic article-it talks about the changes our bodies go thru when we start to run longer.
Why Should Long Runs Be Slower? | Runner's World
I guess I just hear here and other places how negative running is on our bodies. I like to see the positives pointed out. I wonder what weightlifting alone does to resting heart rate? I need to look it up.
I took today off from my trainer. I could not fathom doing squats today because my low back is so achy. I have a half on Sunday so I am going to take it easy the next few days. I will run slowly my doggy clients and that is it. I will just walk my own dogs on Saturday morning.
I bought someone's number. I know it is weird but I have never done that! I feel funny about not being official and I think her corral is at the back. It is a popular race through nice neighborhoods-it is tight at the beginning which will be even more slower. I will have to see how this affects my racing. I might just take it easy since my back is hurting and enjoy the ride. My relay is in 3 weeks.
Any races this weekend for other readers?
