There are a lot of benefits of walking for runners. Time and time again, I’ve heard runners say: “if you walk, you aren’t really running,” but that is far from the truth. Did you know some professional ultra-marathoners walk? Or during many of my trail runs, it’s actually faster and better to walk? Yes, there are benefits of walking for runners.
Let’s talk about the B-word. No…not that one. Running Burnout.
Burnout. We all go through burnout, whether it’s a running burnout, life, or something else. For instance, towards the end of living in New Jersey, I was feeling stale. Doing the same things every day. I didn’t realize it, but I was probably burned out with running too.
Then I got injured with running. Then the pandemic hit, and everything changed. Then I moved across the country. Needless to say, 2021 is not really where I thought I would be.
Happy first day of winter!
Welcome to another edition of runners you might see out during the seasons. In case you missed Types of Summer Runners You’ll See Out or Types of Fall Runners You’ll See Out (Pandemic Version) or even Exercisers You’ll See During Social Distancing.
As we runners know, some days, getting outside during the winter months is hard. Between icy roads, slush, or even freezing rain, it can be tough is to rip the blankets off. But we still do it.
When the pandemic started, I posted Exercisers You’ll See During Social Distancing. Now that fall is finally here; it’s time for the type of runners you’ll see when out and about this fall. It’s different in 2020 due to the lack of major marathons, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see fall exercisers out and about (hopefully social distancing).
