I'm so unplanned this week, really not sure what's interesting in my head! 🤣
So I'm going to cheat a little and steal my theme from this audiobook, which was absolutely great. As someone who has no interest in entering races/events, if anything was ever going to make me change my mind, it would be this lady. Extremely entertaining, she relays the lessons that running has taught her through fantastic and very funny stories along the way.
So what has running taught you along the way or what are you still learning on your running journey?
I would say that apart from the obvious "I can do more than I ever thought" I have learned, or had the following lessons reinforced;
You cannot "spot" a runner; we are so diverse in size, shape and ability. Anyone, just _anyone_ could be a runner.
Stubbornness is really useful in finishing really long runs 🤣
You simply cannot own too many pairs of running shoes! 🤪 the fact that I have, um, 7 pairs in circulation (and a new pair have just arrived) is perfectly normal! 🙈
Don't overthink things... just run 👍🏻
Still getting out 2/3 times a week, usually keeping to my 30 mile/week goal and working out every day before work. Would like to get more miles in but I'm struggling for more availability... Still aiming to hit a 30 miler by October.
What's happening in your running schedule? Are things going to plan, any new shoes on the horizon?
As always, if you're new here, or just browsing through the community posts, this is a great place to introduce yourself and let us know how you are doing. You’ll find plenty of support and knowledge from your fellow runners here.
And have a fabulous week!
