Winter is coming. The dreaded dark, cold, damp days of winter.
After a summer of long miles and race goals, your body and mind start to crave a break from running. Add travel, holidays, and cold to the mix, and most of us fall out of our running routines and out of shape.
But, of course, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Today I share my strategy for getting through difficult months when training feels like a chore, and coming out the other side primed and ready to jump back in.
Here's what we talk about in today's episode:
Last week we heard Paul Gwynn Garrity's transition from never running to training for the Table Rock 50K, his first ultramarathon.
This week I've asked Paul back on to recap his race. To share what went right, what went wrong, and what he'd do differently next time.
Like any first ultramarathon, his race had it's moments, and we'll hear the lessons he learned throughout the process.
