ATTQOTD: the biggest learning I had when I first started running is that I needed to vary my pace, my run type, and my run duration. I thought running was just that - go out for a run. It wasn't long before I learned all about the excitement of intervals, hill repeats, and speedwork. Not only do those make training more productive, they also make it far less boring than 45-60 minutes at the same old pace around the same old loop.It's a new week, how about a new Question of the Day…?
QOTD: What are some of the things you did when you started running that you have since learned not to do today?
As I went out for a run the other day, I was thinking about my shoes and how they are approaching their max mileage target. And it got me thinking about how I never tracked mileage on my shoes when I started running and I would wear them until they basically fell apart. I can only imagine how many miles some of those old shoes had on them. It made me think about other stuff I would do when I first started running but don’t do today.
