It’s Monday! So let’s pretend it’s not and talk about the weekend instead.I have no French connection (other than loving French Connection); so naturally, I was the perfect fit for a seat at the French Embassy’s annual Fête de la Musique on Saturday. Sun, music, champagne, and good friends? Sounds good to me. Thanks for the invite, Milad and Alanna!In an attempt to make the weekend last even longer, here’s some pizza we ate at Fireworks… And that’s all I’ve got. So let’s regretfully yet beautifully move on to Monday, which actually isn’t so bad after all. Look at that sun!It did result in some major sweat, but I guess that’s what summer’s about.
I have no idea what I thought about during this morning’s run nor do I have any spectacular notes from the sunny six miles.
So let’s head to this recent article on Runner’s World: The 25 golden rules of running. Although I think all of the notes are pretty solid (with doubts about #11, #19, and #24), I find that the ones I discuss most often are #9 and #2. A lot of times people ask me how far or how fast to run, especially if they’re training for a new distance. I’ve always held on to the popular beliefs that 1) you shouldn’t increase your mileage by more than 10% per week and 2) a good indicator of a maintainable long run pace is the ability to hold a light conversation.
And on that note, feel free to start some light convo below. Have a good one!
