Jeff’s Post- Running Smarter!
I still struggle at times with when to push and when to listen to my body. I vowed in 2012 to run smarter and I’m happy to say that I’ve been doing that so far but it isn’t always easy. Take this morning as an example. I took Sunday off after a 16 mile double on Saturday. My legs felt great yesterday and I was looking forward to a good treadmill run this morning. As soon as I stepped foot on the treadmill my legs felt tired. I was hoping to get in 6 miles but early on I decided I would “Run Smarter” and finish strong at 3. I struggle because I’m fighting this voice in my head that is saying don’t be a baby push through it and run 6 and then on the other side is a voice that says finish your 3 strong and tomorrow will be a new day. I’m confident running smarter will benefit me more this year than a few extra miles here and there. Don’t worry I’m still going to push it but I’m going to push it when it makes sense.
Have a great day – Remember Run Smart!
