Today I’m joining the lovely ladies for Tuesdays On The Run. Where we talk about a different topic each week that is running related.
Today’s topic is “Something New I Learned About Running This Year”.
I find that I am a continuous learner… I learn by researching, asking others, reading blogs (a shout out to all the bloggers who have shared your experiences and made it easier for others… too many to name), and personal experiences.
These are a few of the things I have learned this year:
- Prehab… way easier than rehab! Doing those annoying strengthening exercises, stretches and foam rolling really helps and makes a difference in the way that you feel on the run.
- Running in the heat and humidity is hard, but if you do it smart your body will get acclimated to the heat eventually.
- I can do hard things! Sometimes I get too much into my head and start negative self talk when I have a hard workout. Often times, I nail the workout … I wonder what I could achieve without the negative self talk?
What have you learned about running?
