Pacing

One of the many things I’ve learned from running is pacing. Many beginners tend to start  off too quickly whether it is a long training run or a local road race. The object is to find your pace so that you can run efficiently throughout the race and finish with a kick. Ironically I’m slow… Continue reading Pacing

Turning Corners, and sharing thoughts…

Over training is as bad as under training. Finding a happy medium where you can get optimal performance without… Continue reading Rest-Stop !
