Friday Finds is a regular feature in which I collate and share interesting articles and posts on running/health/fitness which I’ve read recently. Some might be inspiring, some might be scientific, some might provoke debate. All are things I’ve found in some way thought-provoking.
For those who have lost track, it is indeed Friday again. I hope this Friday finds you well. I’m back with another quick roundup of some bits and pieces I’ve come across this week.
First a similar piece to one I shared last week. It’s easy to get frustrated when we feel we are running more slowly, but often there is good reason and stress can be a major factor.
Some useful lessons from endurance sport which might help up as we continue to navigate the stress and uncertainties of our time:
And some sage advice around dealing with FOMO:
An interesting longer read which considers the legendary Jim Fixx against the current context:
As well as some advice from Brad Stulberg around how important having a routine is right now. It’s definitely helped me to have a structure to my day as I work from home.
Meanwhile, away from Covid-19, Alex Hutchinson has been contemplating what fast marathons might look like in the future. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see some elite racing again soon.
And finally, a new world record – but not quite as you might expect. I can’t believe how fast this guy can run while DRIBBLING A BASKETBALL!!
That’s it for this week!
Stay safe. Be kind. Wash your hands.
