Christmas running calender, day 7:
A main joy of running is also the way it lets you learn more about your body ! I think one of the main factors in becoming a succesfull runner is to wich extend you maneage to keep getting better at \'reading\' and understanding your bodys reactions in training
and racing. In the beginning each step may seem painfull and the tiredness may be overwhelming - but while you get in shape at the same time you gain understanding of what tiredness to take serious, and what tiredness is just your comfort-zone not wanting to move ;-)
As you progress in your running you will learn to detect more and more signals from your body (and at best, its not you running, using your body; but a unity of your willpower & yourbodys capacity as you understand it step by step).
In fact I think that to judge your running mainly by looking at a pulse-meter or a stopwatch is likedriving a formula 1 racer only paying attention to one or two instruments or one or two aspects of the car ... Just as wast amounts of telemetry data is used there, also your body at each moment send you a huge array of feedback - wich in turn can help you avoid intury before it happens, judge pace development in a race, even get a glimse of your fellow racers state, have a precise idea of how much recovery time you need, your training capacity etc.
- On todays run along the coconut plantations & blue lagoon the body called for an easier day; so I backed down and did 30. There is still a Long way to run and the body is afterall not a maschine by a far leap; one day strong another day in need of rebuilding itself to adjust to the daily challenge :-)
