Preparing for a new way of running

Preparing for a new way of running

Yesterday I sceduled a new running goal: walking without a timetracker to slow down

This is a new challenge for me. I always track any minute I walk and keep a scedule with an estimation of the timespan for the 10 miles training. This thought came to me when I realized that some friend abroad heve issues with keeping-up the velocity. So this is an experiment to slow down, relax more and maybe talk during the run.

Actually, this new approach is a result of my travel to London next week. Some friends there invited to England’s breathtakingly beautiful Chalk Cliffs; a fantastic place to hike and run. A friend wanted me on board as long as I did not restate my nickname “Ralph van Put the-walk-always-faster-man” .

Slowing down is quite a challenge, but it’s a good opportunity te see my running mates again. And I have not been at the clifs before; they seem to be gorgeous.

Do you adjust your speed to your running mates? Does that work for you?

Cheers, Ralph

      This is a great read. It encourages me to slowing down while staying competitive with mu runner mates. Enjoy your stay in the UK!
