Even though it was dark when i walked down the driveway to begin a Monday morning run yesterday, the air was anything but cool.
First i said, “i’ll walk 800 meters to warmup, get loose, and get motivated”.
At 800 meters, i extended it to a one mile warmup walk, and even before the first mile was done, i knew what was going to happen.
i was going to say, “i don’t feel like running today. i’ll just do the same amount of time, but walk instead of run. It will be good to cross-train”.
Every avid runner struggles with the same things every other (rookie) runner struggles with.
