He showed us the Bellin Run training plan, which includes a calendar outlining runs and walks of varying length and intensity leading up to June 10th (Bellin Run). Please click on the following link to view the training plan: http://bellinrun.com/uploads/bellin/BR17_TrainingGuide.pdf Surprisingly, he said that most people train too hard, which can not only cause injuries, but also increase the amount of time it takes for your body to get ready for the race. Rest days (as shown on the training plan) are very important, and actually help your body.
Nate also discussed common running-related injuries and how to prevent them. We shared some past injuries we or our family members incurred. He explained why the injuries happened, and how we can help our bodies heal and avoid future injuries.
