Patience is Key
Today was another successful run. I ran at home on the treadmill watching the Tour De France. It is always interesting watching people run or ride when training. Anyway this was a nice and slow run. Just putting in the time. It became clear that following fortitude, patience is key to endurance. Growing impatient with running or the time it takes to add steps together into mileage can be an issue. Adding speed drills keeps it interesting but running for mortals like me dictates that hard running all the time leads to breakdown in motivation and in body mechanics namely injury. Pace is central to success in all aspects of living.
