I was preparing myself for W9R2 today. I watched the last 25 minutes of the Olympic women's marathon and was so inspired!! However, after doing a little reading yesterday on increasing speed and watching and listening to commentators today discussing stride... I was all pumped up...
So I set out today with a new goal... increase my speed. I started out slightly faster in warm up and increased my speed throughout my run..
And what was more important is that I did it. What was the secret?? Well, maybe it is not a secret but rather a revelation (at least to me)... all those things I was hearing... increase stride... the commentators talking of floating effortlessly... the article I read about pushing off with the big toe to increase stride... they all worked!
Ok so I am still a tortoise.. but a tortoise who is floating on air Now I have something to work on!!
One run to graduation
