Running in BelgiumAnn
2012-goals: stay injury-free, build a stable aerobic base, transition to running barefoot run barefoot as long as temperatures allow it
Run more km than I did in 2010 (45) 2009 (95) 2007 (148) 2006 (222) 2008 (234) 2011 (best year yet: 318 km)
Roads were made for journeys...
Take your protein pill and put your helmet on.
Do the 9K. There's nothing wrong with going out to the edge. Listen to your body carefully & you'll know when you're pushing too hard. It's surprising yourself that makes running so much fun.
You said: 'You should finish your training runs feeling pleasantly tired', and that's exactly the problem, I'd like to feel tired, I'd like to have the feeling I have actually done something. Yes, the first minutes I feel a bit tired, but that passes very quickly, and the rest of the day I do not have the feeling I have done any physical exertion, and I would like to. (
But I think I have my decision made for next Sunday. I wil subscribe for the 9K, and just start running slowly.... Everyone will start together, and run 1, 2, 3 or 5 rounds. When I feel after 2 rounds, that I can't add that last one, than I will simply quit, and at least know how it feels to run in a big group.... When I still feel good, I continu. (
