If there is anything running has taught me in my years, is that a lot of the time backwards convention works.
Some of the concepts, theories, ideas, tips and tricks of running that I’ve picked up initially left me confused.
One of those concepts is that slowing down can actually help you go faster. Let me explain…
In 2017 when I start taking running seriously, I couldn’t run very far before stopping, either to walk off a stitch, bring my heart rate down, or to bring my breathing under control. It was a common case of being seriously … unift. For someone who grew up as a competitor (be it athletics, football, basketball, or really anything I tried), I was often left frustrated at not being able to run more than a couple minutes without stopping. I could play back to back competitive games of football or basketball in my high school years, and that sadly raised my expectations of myself.
I've based my decisions on the usefulness of the content, quality of tips, interaction with followers and of course, gorgeous running-related images. The accounts are in no particular order!
Despite the unfortunate situation we've all undergone the past few months (COVID-19) there is a silver-lining... we have plenty of time to prepare for a great comeback race.
