Good morning and welcome to another edition of my Sunday Saves. I haven’t posted an edition in a few weeks, I’m currently adjusting and reviewing how the series is going to see how I want to approach it, so please excuse the delays. Today I’ll be talking about various aspects of running because as I’m coming up to my next 10K race, I am constantly on the look out for running blog posts so there’s a nice mix of 10K race tips (before and after) as well as runners starting out their running journey again.
1) A Luxury Travel Blog (Running 10K Every Day For A Year – 10 Top Tips)
Yep, you read that right, 10K every day for a year! Crazy right? That’s what I thought when I first read it too so I knew this post by Paul had to be included in this. While I won’t be taking on this incredible challenge, he gives some good tips that can be translated into any type of run. So if you’re getting into running for the first time, coming back after a long time or even trying to run a longer distance, these can work pretty universally.
2) goPhysio (Top 10K Recovery Tips from goPhysio)
While we’re on the 10K race theme, I thought it would be appropriate to also include some recovery tips. Recovery is something that I still haven’t made a priority when it comes to running longer distances so this advice from goPhysio certainly puts me on the right track.
3) Sunderland City 10K (It Would Have Been So Easy To Just Give Up Running All Together)
Coming back to the running scene after an injury can be quite daunting and although my injury wasn’t too serious, Graeme’s post resonated with me and that’s why I wanted to include it. While it’s quite a short post, his experience is one that I think a lot of people can relate to, including starting to run with a friend which takes his mind off running, his training so far and his future plans.
4) Medium (Time To Go Running… Again)
This guest post by Shrey had me at the first sentence, “I am not going to lie, running is not something that comes naturally to me.” Shrey, I know how you feel! He begins to talk about his FitBit Blaze (smartwatch twins!) and how something that didn’t feel natural was now a hobby. He started running in the early mornings, he took his running gear with him on holiday and now he had a 5K personal best to work towards. I feel a little proud of a fellow runner!
5) The Average Runner (Do We Compare Ourselves To Other Runners Too Much?)
I believe Nick and I are on the same page; this post is very similar to one that I wrote about this subject a number of weeks ago (It’s linked right here if you want to take a read!) so it’s nice to see in blog form that I’m not alone with comparing myself to other runners. That’s what Nick’s post is all about so naturally, I gravitated towards it and can completely understand how he feels.
Well that’s all from this week’s post, I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any running posts that you have either written or read, send them over my way, I’d love to take a read of them.
