Key To Learn from the Bad Runs to Get Better and Run Faster
Learn from the Bad Runs to Get Better and Run Faster – Quick Tip
Run Report for Monday – What are you doing?
TIP: It’s discouraging to have a bad run (or several bad runs). And it can be hard to figure out what’s causing it.
Try to observe your running, fueling & life without judgment (as a neutral observer) to learn what your body needs to feel 100%. @runeatrepeat – : I cut Saturday’s long run short bcs my left hamstring was tight and I felt tired overall. But I woke up Sunday feeling good & went out for a run to shake it out.
Learn from the Bad Runs to Get Better and Run Faster
Here’s a quick tip from my post run check-in. I realized something while running and wanted to share in case it can help you too.
3 great things from my run:
1. I felt great & ran 10.5 miles (would’ve run more but had to cut it short to get breakfast for my madre)
2. It was confidence building & I really needed that after the previous day’s bad run
3. I was a ‘neutral observer’ as I went about my day Sat & during my run Sun, trying to assess what was making my ham/hip so tight?? As I ran I realized =
I moved into this neighborhood just as the quarantine began. It’s hard to run here because there are drive-ways every 12 yards and due to social distancing =
When I see someone walking towards me I step into the street & then jump back up on the sidewalk (to allow for space). Or I just keep running in the street near the curb.
I’m always on the side of oncoming traffic so I can see cars coming.
The jump on/off the curb AND/OR running where the road is slanted – is hurting me. Especially because I’ve been sticking to one side for almost 2 months now!
Now I know & I can work on that. Boom.
