I was out running with my dog early this
morning – The first time I’ve been out
running for a few weeks.
I’ve been really struggling with hay fever
& my breathing (it happens every year!)
I mainly stuck to the grass on the run, because
I don’t like having my dog on the lead when running
and he doesn’t understand roads at all.
The main aims of my run were to….
1. Run on grass
2. Enjoy myself
3. Focus on running technique
4. Control my breathing
5. Not get my dog ran over
I pretty much ran at an easy pace the whole
time. I very rarely say this…. but running slow
is actually really good for you (in my opinion).
Take away the intensity, take away the watches
and times, take away and simply focusing on your
breathing, your foot contact with the ground and your
posture will really help you with your technique.
Give it a try and have a great day of running!
Thanks for reading,
P.s. I’ve just finished I’ve wrote up a
brand new online guide for people that want to…
* Improve their running technique
* Improve their running times
* Reduce injuries
* Learn new warm up & training ideas
It will be available to pre-order very shortly.
