The long run on Sunday puts you in a contemplative mood. After a 60-90 minute long run, it is a great time to cooldown and watch athletics coverage on local TV, You Tube or twitter. Enjoy your long run today, and remember, run with friends and vary the terrain. As it is early August, it is time to check shoes, and make sure you have two pair for the fall season. With two pairs of training shoes, you can vary the shoes as well. It is the little things that we do on a daily basis, from stretching, to sleeping well, to eating well and hydrating, that make the difference.
Enjoy your long run.
