Today is Monday, September 23. It is a 45-50 minute run day, plus stride outs. Strideouts help keep you with some leg speed and are great the day after a long run to help loosen you up. After such a workout, a nice, relaxed cooldown and stretching is key. I know distance runners, as a species, do not like stretching, but please, put some effort into it, as it keeps you healthy and gives your muscles some relief, especially after a workout.
Molly Huddle won the CVS 5k on Sunday, September 22, 2013. The CVS 5k, held in Providence, Rhode Island, is the US 5k road championships. Huddle is not only a fine road runner, track runner, but an excellent cross country runner. She has supported the World Cross Country Trials and team for several years.
Have a good day of running!
