Glad to see so many of you enjoyed Mary’s guest post yesterday! I’m still all crazy and excited about Sunday’s race, so I’ve had some fun today creating a vlog with ten of the big things I’ve learnt about long distance running – and how to enjoy it!
If you can’t watch the whole thing, or need a quick recap, here are the top 10:
1. Start slow!
2. Don’t over-train – take your easy days easy (see this article by Caitlin Chock)
3. Add some speed work
4. Be persistent
5. Get potential injuries checked out ASAP
6. Don’t sweat the small stuff
7. Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition
8. Listen to your body
9. Believe in yourself
10. Want it
