I am ready for the weekend to start! Even though I work all day tomorrow, I am pumped for Sunday and can’t wait to share what I will be up to!
As you know I am brand new to blogging. With this being said I am reading/learning as much as I can about starting a blog. I actually just discovered her blog, but so far I am loving, My Neon Running Shoes. (Anyone else read her blog?)
So yesterday there was a twitter chat about #blogsmarter. I was not able to join the chat but reading her post this morning was really helpful. I would totally check it out if you are just starting a blog as well! Some of the key points that I found really profound were…
The first key point was really interesting to me. I try not to post day to day of my life. I know a lot of blogs do this, and I don’t feel that is really my niche in the blogging world. I am more of a talking about running, running products, food, and pinterest! 🙂 I guess I am nervous at times to talk about things that could seem interesting to me but they might be boring to others. I also want to start talking about more educational things that I have learned from running and nutrition. I guess I am just going to take the plunge and stop being nervous!!
The second key point is something that I really strive for. I feel when I don’t get ‘X’ amount of likes/comments on a blog that it is a sign that my post was not relatable. But then I read about what I am dealing with online or other places; so I know what I am writing is relatable and inspiring I just have to get over the hump of thinking that likes and comments determine what someone likes.
The last key point is something that I have always struggled with. I know that I have plenty of grammer issues, and spelling errors. You should see the post before I hit publish! I am not a writer by trade so this is a brand new avenue for myself, but it is something that I truly enjoy. I love expressing myself through writing and I am slowly becoming better with the grammer!!
So let’s get to today!
12 miles (long run) 1:51
So I kinda did this workout a little bit different than most. I ran 6 miles before breakfast and did 6 miles after breakfast.
The before breakfast: sluggish, and my legs were very heavy
The after breakfast: I allowed by breakfast to digest, and it was GREAT! My legs were loosen up and I was flying the 2nd haf.
I am not sure I would do this on a regular bases (splitting up the long run), but it was a nice change of pace! I also learned that I am a morning runner, but after I eat!!
Are you new to blogging? What would be your tips?!
Have you ever split your long run or a regular run?
Have a great Friday!
