This trip in Paris brought back my initial runner’s high and the reason why I started running after many years of hating running.
Some lessons learned, and I hope I remember this when I get back in the states
- don’t run too fast, pace and I can run a long distance
- running is about endurance and longevity, I would rather run slower and run for the next 30 years than run very fast for only 2 years and hurt my legs
- when I run at a slower pace, and I have a destination, I can run 13 miles no problem
- it’s ok to stop for a break
- remember to smile
My daily routine to get ready
don’t shower in the morning, put on a hat, wear a nike sleeveless dry shirt, a thin and super light windbreaker, nike running shorts
favorite shoes from nike, Pegasus
keys, visa, money for food
pace tracker from nike
nike triax cv10 to track pace, no need for heart monitor
paris map with marked stations to cover
filled up ipod shuffle with popcast and music
ready to rumble!
