Midrun self­ies

Runner's World (UK) - - Social Media Savvy -

Post­ing a mid-easy-run pic may con­nect you with the run­ning com­mu­nity, says Hamil­ton, but paus­ing dur­ing tempo, race-pace or long runs can in­ter­fere with your fit­ness gains. ‘The pur­pose of th­ese workouts is to main­tain in­ten­sity over an ex­tended pe­riod,’ says War­ren­burg. ‘If you’re stop­ping in the mid­dle, you’re chang­ing the dy­namic.’ And then there’s ba­sic safety and eti­quette: slam­ming on the brakes to whip out your phone in a crowd can cause a pileup.

IN­STEAD Save midrun snaps for easy days, dou­blecheck that the coast is clear be­fore you stop and ask per­mis­sion be­fore post­ing a group shot. ‘Just like in traf­fic, you should re­spect the peo­ple around you,’ says Hamil­ton.
