Before you head out for your weekend, check out some of this week's best posts from the Cool Running and Active communities:

 

•     What is it like ?

“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.”

 

•     Badwater 135 Tracker

”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.”

 

•      Great Quotes

“You only ever grow as a human being if you're outside your comfort zone.”

 

•      Sometimes I feel like I don't belong

“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.”

 

•      Missed workouts

”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.”

 

•     How many days a week should I run?

”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?”
