When I did races in the past I pushed myself well beyond tolerable discomfort. In training for the Kauai virtual half-marathon in 2020, for instance, I overdid it and had to take a long break from training.
Thanks also for the tips on running downhill as I have suffered knee injuries (IT band, patella) using a forefoot strike going downhill, especially on longer runs up and down Tantalus/Roundtop.
Again, mahalo nui for all that you do. I am learning so much from you and everyone else in this group!
I look forward to our workout on Thursday!
