Rekindling my Romance with Running.  

  • Aug 21st, 2017 at 7:33AM

I did my final long run in an unconventional way. I was invited to play in a soccer match today and I really felt like playing. So I played 90 mins of soccer which I equate to 4-6 miles of running. Afterward I went for a slow 3 mile run to make sure that I hit 13k.

Since having my first son 6 years ago, I've used running as a frequent cardio workout. But I haven't really trained for time or distance the way I once did. Being in Run10k gave me a sense of purpose to my running, in addition to helping me with my form, knowledge, and intentionality. I've been running since I was in 4th grade, but focusing for the past six weeks had made me stronger than ever before. Great program, Patrick and Malia. Thanks to Ward for being such a great training partner. Working with you was almost too easy. I love the energy and insight you bring to us.

Thanks to all the trainees in Run10k and half for inspiring me. I look forward to seeing your continued adventures in running on your blogs.

Great when you can add to your skills even with something you have been doing for a long time. Thanks for sharing your wisdom with us along the way Ed. Bet you can't wait to get your boys running with you - nice start on this program!

          We see a lot of people run 13K for the first time in Run10K, but it's just as satisfying to see someone fall in love again with a sport they've known almost all their life. Bravo, my friend, on smashing another program.

              Ed, tackling a training session + rearing the young one + rearing some new Kenzai runners is a tall task. Talk about making it all look easy. You manage to cut through all the shit with equal parts of love, hilarity, insight, and running know-how.

              To watch you give back to the running game while finding your footing again was a treat. Plus, that bod!

              Hope you gave 'em hell out on the pitch. COMPLETE!

                Great prog isn't it. High on completing it and struck with marathon fever, I rather deftly entered the ballot for London 2018! - let's hope fortune doesn't favour the brave in this instance otherwise there's some serious training in my future !
