On top of getting ready for a new school year, I have been getting ready for my very first Reach the Beach. Even though I have a reasonably easy leg (running #7), my running partner has a challenging one. This means we did some hill work. Only one more run before we head up the mountain, so it was a weekend of checking things off the RTB Runner's Checklist.
#TrainingTruth: Switching to afternoon runs from morning runs really wears me out (this is the only picture I managed to get that day!).
#TrainingTruth: Running up a really BIG hill helped relieve the pain in my gluteus maximus.
#TrainingTruth: Every tough run feels awesome at the end.
#TrainingTruth: Least favorite item on RTB packing list: sleeping bag!
#TrainingTruths is not just about me. We all like to see what everyone else is doing and use that information to assess ourselves. It's not judgement. It's a way to share and learn and make changes when necessary.
To participate all you have to do is share your #TrainingTruths:
- Tag a Twitter post with the hashtag #TrainingTruths
- Comment on the Running Escapades Facebook page
- Leave a link to your own blog post in the comments
I look forward to reading your #TrainingTruths!
