I got my National Running Day off to a celebratory start with a 4-mile run. My legs are shredded after yesterday’s TRX workout—think LOTS of squats and one-legged squats and you get the picture! My coach rearranged my training schedule to make this morning’s run an easy 4 instead of the speed work that would not have happened in a million years was supposed to happen yesterday. This afternoon I will be headed to a lunch for ZOOMA Cape Cod. I can’t wait to hear more details about the race!
In honor of National Running Day, I have put together a list of a few ways you show running how much you love it today!
- Go for a run, rain or shine. Lace up the sneakers and hit the road, trails, or even the ‘mill.
- Encourage someone you know to start running – Couch to 5K is a great starting plan.
- Start reading a running book like Born to Run, Chi Running, or Pre: The Story of America’s Greatest Running Legend, Steve Prefontaine.
- Sign up for a race.
- Buy some new running gear as a present to yourself for National Running Day!
