The treadmill. Repetitive running. Not a fan. When the temp is high and I didn’t run at dawn…It doesn’t matter. Just part of the training. Went to Wilson’s (not to be confused with this Wilson).
To beat off the doldrums, it’s a good time to work on thought discipline. Pushing out negative and focusing in on positive thoughts. Also, a good time to pray too – which I do a lot. That takes your mind off of the time ticking away on the dashboard. So I focused in on an object directly ahead and with good running posture, started off – mind and body in sync.
When I finished, I did my usual stretches and then did some leg extensions to strengthen my quads. So on this Saturday night I got my run in and am glad I did.
What’s your running plan? What races are you training for?
