Taking things easy…


Yesterday’s run was so good. I took it really easy. I thought that I would huff and puff a lot after my long break but it actually went better then I thought. I did not push myself but did try to go all out on one or two of the hills, which felt great.

Should I be doing races?

Today I am feeling a bit tired. So I will keep taking things easy, until I am back in the full swing of things. I am actually thinking of not really running races as it take a lot of effort to prepare and then the recovery. My fitness levels are not that high as I still require 2 or 3 days to recover from a run. So I am thinking of just building endurance slowly and keep to long runs for now….

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!

    • Thanks for the advice, yes feet is important. Check out my blog of “New Gear for a New Year”. Actually thinking of blogging more about hunting for running shoes. Did the “technical advice” thing which at first glance seems good, however the more you learn about what to look for in a running shoes and understand pronation the more I am starting to wonder about some of the advice people receive…
