Take It and Run Thursday: Building Miles and Going Long

Take_it_and_run_thursday Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday!

It's our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners.  It's the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together.  Even though many of us aren't elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn't mean that we haven't earned a well deserved PhD in running.   Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.  

Today's theme is .... Building Miles and Going Long. 

It's that time of year when many of us are working on building our endurance by adding more runs in the week or more miles to a run...or sometimes both.  What are your tricks for fitting it into your schedule?  What is your advice for doing it without injury?  Share your favorite training plans and resources.   Pass along your mantras or tricks that keep you going when your body is ready to stop.It's quick and easy!   

Just post your name and the title/topic of your post in the first spot and the link to your post in the second spot.     And then read and enjoy!

Next Week's Theme is ... Running Communities.   With a new running season moving into high gear for training and races, tell us about your running community.  It could be a feature about your running club, your informal running group of friends and family, your online running supporters/group.  However you define your running community - give them a shout out and tell the Lounge what cool things are going on.

I love my long runs!


I wish I was more of an expert on them, but alas. The time I tried to go really long, my feet blew up!! I'm hoping to try again sometime armed with a better base and some good orthotics.

I don't feel like I've contributed much to these, mostly because I'm so new to all this stuff. Great idea though!


Great site and I love the "Take It and Run" Thursdays.
