The legs fairly tired after yesterday (95km & 850m. alt. climb) but had company by two young runners who seemed extremely exited to take part in the run - and that inspires me too :-)
They were talented 400m & 1500m hurdle/steeplechase athletes and I think the 25km theyeach ran w. me was more than what is good for a young middledistance runner - especially at my slow pace.. They need Fast training :-) But they were not to get off the road and we talked an 'english-arab' language mix about all imaginable subjects untill they couldnt move another meter and went in the support bus.
What company !! Thanks Friends :-))
Todays running advice will have to be exactly that: to remember to share your training every once ina while ! We all sometimes struggle to 'get out the door' on the daily run - but when someone awaits you to share the run; running club mates, a friend,father/mother/sister or a coalueage from work - then it becomes the game, joy and social event it should be :-)
