Before you head out for your weekend, check out some of this week's best posts from the Cool Running and Active communities:
I'm a new runner and I've been reading the running forums a lot and hear people talk about these long runs they go on , I was just wondering , how does it feel different from when you were outta shape only being able to run .5 mile compared to now when you can run 3 miles.
Check it out, the Badwater 135 started this morning. These amazing athletes are making their way through the heat of Death Valley to Mount Whitney Portal.
You only ever grow as a human being if you're outside your comfort zone.
Ok, so I'm not Toby or Jimmy who run thousands of miles a week, and I am yet to finish a marathon under 4. But, I still consider myself a marathoner and sometimes I find it hard to identify myself with other folks.
I was supposed to run 5 miles yesterday but was so dog tired that I couldn't do it. I didn't get up this morning to do it either because I still felt like I needed to sleep. This is the miserable kind of tired I am talking about.
Is there any problem with me running a mile 7 days a week at night since I am still pretty slow? Should I just walk on the days I do not run?
