Run The World Gobal Challenge celebrates running around the world.  We have finished our first year. RTW Global Challenge 6 is a 10 week program that started July 2, 2019 and will finish 10-weeks later on September 11.  The idea is to run or walk and then log those miles on your My Best Runs account. There is no entry fee.  You just need a MBR account and that’s Free too.  Once you sign up you log your miles on your account.

I think a runner needs to challenge themselves at least three times per week to improve. Actually when I am getting ready for a race I challenge myself like five times weekly. Good job today! 8/10 5:14 pm
Yes Bob, that’s the way to improve yourself. Have a nice running. 8/10 5:28 pm
I have been doing a lot of runs were I do intervals at the end. Think it is helping my leg turn over. Keep up the good work! 8/11 8:32 am

Looks like you are recovering? Love that area of California. 8/8 9:42 am
Yes!! I have been doing yoga, icing, and small muscle workouts to get strength and flexibility back. Tightness almost gone. Still not pushing it and i'm wearing a knee brace while just walking around. Running straight is ok, just can't sprint or pound downhill. 8/8 10:52 am
Take care my friend! 8/8 9:47 pm
Honesyly I was pushing too hard. Took advice from a former military man that told me to listen to the pain.. it's telling you to ease off. I was running with emotion, as we should never do. If you are not in "that zone", you need to ease off and let the discomfort guide you hou to recovery. 8/13 8:55 pm

Today did 10kms of running at a medium pace of 6:15 min/km in 1:02:28 hrs Just an hour of running can transform your mind, body, and soul. This is not an exaggeration. All these benefits are backed by various scientific studies. Make it a routine to go out for a run at least four to five days a week. Running will gradually affect and improve your diet and lifestyle habits. Another study found that the runners continue to live an active life and have fewer disabilities compared to the ones who don’t. (Tue 6)
