There is so much great information out on the web for athletes. I find myself getting lost on Facebook and Twitter not because I’m stalking my high school buddies or in awe of what my neighbors are doing on Saturday afternoon — but, because of the inspiring athletes I see in the groups I’ve joined. Because of the new and interesting races being announced….Foam Fest & Zombie Run? And most of all, because of the articles that pull me in like a moth to flame. “Are you overtraining” “Best Fuel for Your Run” and “Injury Prevention for Runners” are all sure to bring me to a scrolling halt with a click.
So, what am I reading this week? It all depends on where I am with my training and where my focus lies at the moment. When I was injured I read every article I could find on coming back strong and future injury-prevention. But, now, as I find my soles hitting the pavement again and my bike getting some pitiful use, this is where you’ll find my eyes wonders on that addictive iPad late night…
