The other day when I was doing my 2 mile run, I think I had an epiphany!! My friend had told me to lengthen my stride - but I didn't know how to do that really. Then I realized that if I slowed my legs down, my speed on my watch was faster! What the heck? I think I figured it out though! Leave it to me (TOTAL music nerd) to figure it out in terms of music! Well, rhythm anyway. I was subdividing my strides (like beats). So in the same amount of time, I was doing 8 beats when I could have been doing 4! THAT is why it actually felt like I was slowing down to go faster! Ok - I guess I was getting inside my own head - BUT, I think I solved a problem so all is good! I'm not sure I can do it every time, but at least now I can recognize when I'm subdividing!!
Hubs took another video of me running - hopefully I can post it this time! My son ran ahead of me - DAMN does that boy have some WHEELS! He is really fast! I couldn't catch him and my watch had him pegged at 10:23!!! That is quick!!
Well, the video does not appear to be loading. It could just be due to the fact that my computer is ancient! I MISS my laptop, sorely!!
Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a wonderful day!!! - Monica
