It's nice to run with no reason and just because you love it. Running makes me feel good and I always try to run with other runners as a team. I like sharing my runs and running paths with the beautiful blogging community. Thanks in advance for visiting my blogs and leaving comments.

Aerobic training zone
On Sunday, January, 2, I had the first run of this new year. It was a relaxing run. Then I ran on Monday a tempo (45 minutes, average pace 4.50 minutes per km) and on Wednesday, 1 hour and 7 minutes. Moreover, I did a gym session on Tuesday, the 4th of January. I was really delighted with my tempo run but while I was running fast on the way back a man asked me something. He said: "Could you tell me an information about the Tennis Club. Is it situated near here?". I quickly answered him: "The next street on the left!" Maybe he didn't understand because I answered while I was running. So, I decided to continue the tempo run.
Have you ever stopped during a run? Some runners sometimes stop during a run to chat with a friend or to take a photo. In this case, does the quickstop affect the training value?
I think that a midrun stop can drop we out of our aerobic training zone. This zone begins at 65 per cent of our maximum health rate. So, running at this level of intensity challenges our cardiovascular and muscular system enough to maintain or improve our fitness. As a consequence, midruns stop reduce the total amounts of time we're in the aerobic zone.
That's why I quickly answered and didn't stopped while I was doing the tempo run last Monday :)
I'd like to know your opinions about a stop during a run.
The photo above was taken while I was running the Orbetello's Christmas race on December, 19.
I hope that all my blogger friends will have a nice training!
