As the year closes and I reflect on the many things I've learned and think about the zillion things I've yet to learn, I'd thought I'd write 'em down so I can compare where I am to where I'll be in a few years... take from it what you will.
These are the most important lessons, actually, based on a 'hard/easy' approach and adhering to many of Dr. Jack Daniel's (and others) principles. Running is fun and that should never, never be forgotten. We are lucky to be able to enjoy this simple act, whether it's for fun, competition through racing, improving health, weight loss or simply stress relief.
Well, that's enough from me. There are other, more obvious lessons, like 'Don't run a 20K road race on a sprained ankle', but I think I'm the only one who needed to learn that particular one...ha.
As before, written with a tip of the hat and a bow to:Lydiard, Cooper, Young, Costill, Pfitzinger, Glover, Higdon, Galloway, McMillian, Sheehan and of course, Dr Daniels.
*edit-I wrote this years ago, but it truly is rather timeless...
