This was also a struggle for me. Why am I struggling this week so much with WEGO’s? Oh well-when I commit to something, I like to see it all the way through and will continuing to my health advocating. All I really had on me were to textbooks, but I was able to find my woman’s running book.
This one. (Good book full of quality information mind you).
I flipped to a section on two a day workouts and the benefits of them versus a single long run.
Well actually that inspires me to write because a lot of my training is based on two-a-days versus one long run…everyday. Let’s face it-running seems a lot shorter if you run 2, 6 mile runs versus 1, 12 mile run. That is my thought process anyways and honestly I would rather it that way. Sometimes when I’m running, I get extremely bored and it becomes tiresome. I literally mentally check out of the run. Let’s face it-if you run a 10 mile run, some of those miles aren’t exciting. A lot aren’t.
In my personal training (when I’m upwards of 70m or 10m daily)….I alternate every other day. One day I’ll do 2, 5 mile runs. The next day I’ll do a 10 mile. Maybe the next day 12 followed by 8…all depending. Varying the running distance also makes it more interesting right? Right.
Essentially it is also much less stressful on your body to break your runs up. My cross country coach used to joke around and say, well if you don’t have time to run an 8 miler today, just break it up and run 1 mile every hour. (I never did but I still would be getting in the miles…and putting far less stress on my body).
Anyways-run all types of distances.
I don’t know exactly know where I went with this post other than to ramble.
Question for you: Do you prefer to break up your workouts or get it all done at once?
