Many of you know I'm a soccer player and coach. Well, this week I coached a high school soccer camp and got plenty of running - in a very different way.
It's easy to get caught up in our running plans and feel that hitting the pavement in a straight line is the only way we can meet our running requirements. This week afforded me the opportunity to get lots of running in, without ever hitting the streets!
Through conditioning days (the Coach Dodd 10 Cycle!) and speed work, and from scrimmaging with a bunch of high schoolers I was able to log plenty of miles this week while "playing"
Don't take this the wrong way, I love running, and running on the roads or the trails is such a stress release for me that I do because I deeply Want to, but it's fun sometimes to get the running time in in other ways -- what ways do you get your runs in while "just playing"?
