I’ve come a long way with my running. I started out, like so many others, trying
But, with all of my new found speed, one thing has always held true. Running is HARD, no matter how fast you are.
It occurred to me that even though running at a 10:00 pace DOES become easier than it did 4 years ago I am always striving to be faster than I was before. That is, as soon as running becomes “easy”, I speed up so it is hard again. My tempo runs always feel like I am going to die and my track work always leave me gasping for air.
The moral of this post?
