You know those runs that feel waaay hard at beginning but feel the best and most smooth towards the end? Today was THAT kinda day for me! . Actually, I didn't "settle in" and get "comfortable" (if that is such a thing) until the 5k mark. Two days prior, I don't think I got "comfortable" until about an hour into the two hour + run. . 3.5 QUESTIONS FOR Ü 1️⃣ Do you experience this too? 2️⃣ Do you have a "range" where you get more "comfortable" or does it change every work out? 3️⃣ Is there anything you do to try and become more "comfortable" as quickly as possible? 3️⃣.5️⃣What are some of these running hacks? . One of the things I love most about running is the community, the knowledge sharing and the genuine love and support within it! Forever grateful for y'all 🤝

    Follow @tri3oost for extra daily inspiration! 😉💪 If you already do, 🥂

    Every run is different for me..... but I always try to welcome the 'tough' part now.... getting through it is incredibly satisfying 💕

  • @k__mackenzie 11:00 AM Feb 12, 2019

    I heard a good one today. Some elite ultrarunners run ten mins then decide what sort of run they will do. No point pushing. Listen to the body but don’t stop if it feels clunky in the first 5 mins. Good rule of thumb?

  • @gfitfishpaw 11:11 AM Feb 12, 2019

    Good for you, Ralph! Every run feels different to me, and yes, I've always experienced this. It takes me 1.5 to 2 miles to feel normal, and probably because I prefer distance running. I never judge a run by the first mile either.😉

  • @therunningdoctor6 11:14 AM Feb 12, 2019

    I had one of those too today...first few intervals I felt heavy and not getting into the rhythm...on days like this I’ll give extra time, I don’t sweat it, I just say “in 10-20 min you might feel different”, and most of the times it settles. Today, first 4 Intervals were clunky and I just say “relax”, pull back if you need to....but then last 4 were super smooth!!! I do give it Time...and if in time it doesn’t get better, I cut short, don’t sweat it and try another day. Not biggy

  • @coleyjo72 11:34 AM Feb 12, 2019

    Yes almost everyday lol but love the feeling of getting stronger as the run progresses

  • @runner4cake 11:56 AM Feb 12, 2019

    I work on enjoying each moment in the run ... some runs are just hard, but it’s ok!

  • @lizzy_ness 11:57 AM Feb 12, 2019

    sometimes i don’t get comfy until i’m done and sometimes is great right off the bat but most times it’s a mile in. i try to focus in breathing and getting into a good pace rhythm.

  • @juannguyenrunning 1:33 PM Feb 12, 2019

    After about 10miles or 16km is where I start to settle in...💁‍♂️

  • @mvdunham5_runs 4:00 PM Feb 12, 2019

    Nice work friend ❣️I need a mile to warm up!

  • @spottedturkey 4:27 PM Feb 12, 2019

    After the 2nd mile I know. No matter, embrace the suck

  • @illmatic_gibs 12:09 AM Feb 13, 2019

    👌👌👊👊

  • @kyliejjane 12:57 AM Feb 13, 2019

    The days where you don’t get comfy are usually the ones you feel best about at the end. I am finally feeling comfortable running after a few weeks where it was not so much a struggle but I just couldn’t see or feel much improvement at all. Keep running though, because you know you got this 👊

  • @themarathonmarcus 9:57 PM Feb 13, 2019

    How do you start your runs? For me, I always start my runs slowly so I can warm up into the run. Plus also do some activation work ie squats/lunges etc before you start.

  • @sheloves2runandlift 4 days ago

    I've usually had these runs especially the long ones...I feel like crap as I start and wonder how I'm gonna get it done!! I start to get the feel after almost one hour (for those two-hour runs on Sudays)
