Take It and Run Thursday: Middle Miles

Take_it_and_run_thursday_2 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 ....Don't Quit Now!  The Middle.  Your not quite to the point of a taper, you are in the toughest part of your training schedule.  Your miles are long or faster or both.  Your near or just past the middle of a run or in your training for your race but you aren't quite close enough to see the end.  What do you do?  How do you recover?  How do you ward off injury?  How do you stay motivated?  How do you deal with the middle miles?

Just fill in your name/title of your post and your URL below.

Next weeks theme is .... Run. Rest and Recover.  Repeat.   Outside of oxygen and water, the next most important ingredient for running is rest and recovery.  How do you rest and recover from your runs?  Favorite drinks, fuel, lounging activity?  Have you found the perfect combination of running and recovery - any magic formulas?  Share your tips!
