MAIN TOPIC: Running by Feel is Not Running by Effort
Running by effort does not equal running by feel
Discussion about the difference between how you feel (and outcome) and how much you exert (an input)
The common questions:
- LR: feels so easy for 1 hour, then by 2 hours feels really hard…
- Steady: feels comfortable but can’t hold it for an hour
- Races: felt so good, was running so easy, until ___
- Running by feel is reactionary,
- Running by effort is proactive, responsive to conditions and prerequisite circumstances
- Why? Because you control the input–how much you are exerting–before you feel one way or another (think: early run vs. late run)
How do I do it differently–measure effort?
