I thought I'd share this article I just read, which I found interesting as I've been doing the same, or similar, for ages now, particularly the breathwork. I decided to stop chasing the distances and times 'at all costs' and just enjoy my runs, be in the moment. I do still listen to music sometimes though. I think the bodyscanning is a really important element, and I'm sure this approach (plus the restorative yin yoga I do) has helped me to stay running injury free.
I've been off for a couple of weeks, due to illness and having less time due to the yoga teacher training, but I have fitted in some runs since my last blog, just a few 5Ks here and there. I'm hoping that Mother's day won't get in the way of me having a run tomorrow, I'm itching to get out there and hopefully have a lovely jog
I hope everyone is well, I feel I've neglected the forum for a while, but it was impossible to go online while I was ill (made me feel sick), hopefully I can catch up on a few posts tomorrow, while my breakfast in bed is being prepared
