Wow! I would never have guessed I’d be doing a podcast on this topic, but here I am. This is not normal, nowhere near normal, not by ay stretch of the imagination. We are all living through this, one day at a time, finding our way, figuring out how to cope. We have no other choice; however, fortunately, ‘we’ have running to ease our trip through this difficult time.
Every single runner of every level is struggling right now, stressed, some more than others, but living during this pandemic has shaken us all. We need our running more than ever; it’s our therapy, right?
Our running behavior has been extremely restricted and may continue to be restricted for months. Our races have been cancelled, and we don’t know when they will happen. Sure, many have been rescheduled, but experts are saying things may be worse rather than better in the fall.
That is not the focus of this podcast; this podcast is about how you should and can train, right now. I talk about your options, ways to maintain your running fitness under current circumstances.
Training during a pandemic is challenging, but it’s not impossible. I have plenty of ideas for you to continue your running training during a pandemic.
