For our 9th week, we are going to add a mile to our short runs for a total of 5-miles for and adding another mile to our long run for a total of 10 miles.
Let’s talk about safety and making sure you don’t get hurt while running.
Some things I do to stay safe is to run on paths or trails to avoid cars. There are a lot of walking and running paths in Seattle including stairs and a lot of hills if you are up for a challenge. Check out some local state park to find trails near you.
Trails can also be very popular with bikers. The rule is to stay to the far right like a car (in America) so the faster person can pass on the left.
Bright clothing can also help keep you safe and visible to cars. I wear a bright pink vest with reflection tape and have a lot of bright running clothes that I use on my long runs.
