You know what I find incredible?
That we can talk to the Creator of the Universe and He will talk back to us. We can pray and He’ll listen.
I can have a conversation with God. And I think sometimes I don’t realize how amazing that is.
Yesterday’s meet results:
The 3200 was the worst race I have ever ran. It’s the longest I’ve ever ran on a track for racing, and I got a side stitch. Which made my breathing bad. I ran the first lap in 1:28 which for me is WAY too fast. I was running with the leaders who ended up running in the 11 min range, and I fell back at lap two. I ended up last other than a girl who dropped out halfway. It really was the worst race I’ve ever run. I could hardly get any air in afterwards and walked around the infield for ten minutes trying to breathe.
HOWEVER. The mile was pretty rockin. I didn’t PR, but it was just a practice meet so I’m not too bent up about it (but just nine seconds away…). I felt in control. From the break in, to hitting my splits perfectly the first 2 1/2 laps, till crossing the finish and my coach looking pretty pleased. This is the good part of yesterday. I showed myself I can make it to 6 min mile, and possibly 5:59. I’ve got till the end of the season, and I’m pretty optimistic now, as opposed to the total defeat after the 32. Geez, that race…
How to tie shoes for running
Wait I need this for my dystonia!!!!
seems like valuable info to pass along
I would have threw out 115$ shoes if I didn’t use the Toe problem one. God bless this post.
I use the heel slipping one and it actually works.
“Running is flying*”
*When you walk, one foot is always on the ground. When you run, most of the time you are actually airborne. For example: a 6-foot-tall runner with feet about 1 foot long was found to take 1,250 steps while running 8-minute miles. Thus, while covering 1 mile—5,280 feet—he was in touch with the ground for 1,250 feet and airborne for 4,030 feet.
Put another way, he was in the air for 76% of the time. So don’t think of it as a 10-mile run. Think of it as 7 miles of flying.
