3 THINGS YOU NEED TO HEAR RIGHT NOW:
1. Cross-training doesn't make you any less of a runner.
2. You can celebrate the 15min/mi just as much as the 7min/mi.
3. A short run is better than no run at all.
Let’s ground ourselves a little bit every now and then. ✨
Deciding to focus on cross training or strength workouts with runs sprinkled in doesn’t make you less of a runner. It makes you a stronger runner.
The 15 minute miles are just as needed as the 7 minute miles. All miles deserve celebration, no matter what your pace is. A mile is a mile, regardless of the time it took.
A 15 minute run when you were supposed to do 45 minutes is better than not getting in a run at all. It’s time we let go of being perfect and do what we can. Even a run that straight up sucks is better than not even trying to see how you feel.
I’m hoping this post helps you stop the comparison game when scrolling social media. All runners, runs, miles, and paces are welcome in this community whether you run every day or once a week. You’re doing great!
