I’ve been thinking a while now why I chose the name “slowrunnergirl” and if it is a good fit. Spoiler: of course it is!
What’s in the name?
The name consists of three parts. Slow isn’t just about the speed, it is also about taking the time to do the necessary things. Like slow food, slow running is much more than just the words itself. Now comes the hard part. Girl! It isn’t about my age. It is more about the feeling I want to have while running. No worries in the world, no obligations and exist just in the moment, flying while I carry a smile.
Right, now that this is clarified, there can’t be a post without a picture. Today’s picture is my* brand new manifesto!
A manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of the issuer, be it an individual, group, political party or government. (source)
That is of course if you are not currently running the MdS or one of the big upcoming races! Then … all bets are off and I wouldn’t have a clue anyway.
I think my morning running routine might be broken. I will fix it asap.
Broken as well is either my watch or heart. According to my watch I reached a new HR max of 199 running 3:16 – all 10 seconds of it.
Well … I can explain! It was downhill on a sandy grassy coastal dune path and I tried to emulate Ben’s famous elevation charts. I still think my watch needs a software update as I don’t think I can actually have an HR that high … or run that fast.
To stick to today’s theme, check out what remains I found today:
Do you remember when I posted the ‘full’ bike? Not much is left … like with my fitness. Thankfully I know how to fix one of those things.
