While most people prefer running under ideal weather conditions (sunny skies, cool breezes and ideal temps) there are many benefits in choosing to run in the rain!!
There have many countless of articles of what it is like to live with a”runner” this is why I would like to write about what it is like to live with a person who doesn’t understand your “love for running”!!!
Dear Non Runners,
After a lot of thought and desire to not hurt anyone’s feelings, I want you to take a little time and read our “thoughts on paper”.
Yes I know, it may become truly weary…. even drab, listening to someone constantly boring you stiff on how much they ran, which part of their body hurts, how their next training schedule should be like…….the list goes on – I know I have said the same things a million times to the same person. But what about the importance of sharing in your partners’ achievements, even if it is with one ear, then “bravely” changing the subject… we will get the picture and love you more for “listening” so hard!!!!! Turning a deaf ear is so easy and anyone can do it!!
“In a Runner’s World, one thing is given and essential: each workout needs to be seamless and each effort continual.”
Run2Stars, our first write up for My Trending Stories and we are very fortunate in having the below article written by a professional Greek ultra marathon runner – Zinia Sanoudou.
Wise words from an expert!
For the “believers” therefore, abstinence from action for a small period of time, following an injury, can bring about pessimism and melancholy!
05:40 breakfast – 2 slices of bread with 2 tablespoons of super energizing pre-run peanut butter spread snack/ (see our run story of June 15) for those that haven’t put it in your daily diet yet!!!
6:30 time for our run……… day 2 of yesterday’s training plan done 1hr and 05 mins later!!
10:30 one granola bar
13:00 a poor lunch at the office…….. to consist of yoghurt, fresh fruits, topped with honey and walnuts
16:00 definitely need a dose of chocolate ………. Sadly only dark choc!!!
19:00 dinner …. A huge summer salad and a juicy steak……….slightly rare!!
Then as commonly said…..e a r l y to bed ……… e a r l y to rise ……
P.S. don’t forget to drink at least 2-3 ltrs of water
At Varkiza Beach with friends ……………what better way to treat your feet – after a long run on a sunny day !
When your legs get tired…..run with your heart!
