​break the mold: run in the afternoon

you often hear people speak about running in the morning with a tremendous amount of gusto and enthusiasm. and for many years, I tried to assimilate myself to this group of uber-motivated morning people. however, after years of trying to pretend that this is enjoyable I had an epiphany; “running in the early morning is the worst. the absolute worst”. all that being said, I understand that life sometimes necessitates a morning run in order to run at all during an overly busy day. but the question I have for you is, “if given the choice, would you still run in the morning?”

Just a short daily yoga practice pays dividends to other areas of your well-being, so here are ways to ensure you make it to your mat.

Slow It Down, Pick It Up

Fartlek. That's fun to say!​

For those who have never incorporated fartleks into your training, it's a style of speedwork that is designed to be flexible. they're unlike traditional track workouts where you run hard for a set distance then rest. Often, runners will sprint to a visible landmark, then rest, then pick another landmark and sprint.
