Thank You

Postby Dstew » Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:12 pm

Although it has only been a couple of weeks, I just wanted to say thank you for the words of wisdom provided by the experts on this board with regards to what I should do in training.

Previous to that advice, I had managed one week of 100 kilometers and I am positive that week lead to my stress fracture. Just last week I ended up running over 100 kilometers and did not even realize it until after I had logged my last run of the week. I have managed three such weeks and I will exceed that this week again. I do not need any ice or medication and I still look forward to getting out for my runs. And many times I plan to do 7 K but end up doing 15 or plan to do 15 K but do 20 K because my legs are good and it is actually fun. Whereas before it was drudgery and torture. Add in the benefit that I have lost weight and people are telling me how much better I am looking after just a little more than an month of this approach and I can honestly say that how fast I actually run a marathon pales in comparison to all of the other benefits of this approach so once again, thank you for taking the time to provide me with your thoughts and experience.

When your legs get tired, run with your heart.

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.
