Friday Finds – 5th June

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.

Hello! did you miss me last week? The thing about working from home, is that all that time spent in front of a screen means putting together a blog post is much less appealing – plus last Friday the sun was out and my sister came for a (socially distanced) garden visit so something had to give. Sorry! Still, I’m back today with a super-quick post to round up a few interesting odds and ends:

Although I had no marathon-related plans this year, I was still shocked (although probably not hugely surprised) at the cancellation of this year’s Boston marathon. I fear that many other events will follow suit and 2020 will become a bit of a wasteland when it comes to competitive events

Mind you, it looks like some runners are finding other ways to be competitive throughout lockdown:

And I enjoyed this photo story of how professional athletes have been maintaining their training from home:

I have mentioned one or two times that coming back out of lockdown makes me feel worried. I have become so accustomed to avoiding people that the idea of closer contact feels almost alien. I knew I wouldn’t be alone in feeling that way and Runner’s World has put together some advice:

And finally, a little bit of Strava humour. Which one best describes you? I’m definitely the “looper”.

Stay safe. Be kind. Wash your hands.

  1. I love that Strava map link- I much prefer a loop but recently I have been doing out and back, so more “utility runs” according to that! And I do love the speed camera challenge, only the one near me is also by a side road so you can’t sprint too fast because of cars coming from the side!
