But today all I could think of during my morning run (besides the run and my pace) was the movie I watched last night with dear hubby.

It was cool to hear their stories and dear hubby learned a lot about the physiology of running. All in all, a good movie. But today it came to mind in a different light as I was reflected back on my initial thought last night --- could some of the injuries be prevented with a more conservative training plan? The different light was why were the females more plagued my injuries?
So to stir up a healthy debate I am going to toss some questions out there for you all and yes, I fully realize male runners get hurt, hit the wall, have bad days, and have good days....just like the female runners.
Are the physiological forces for female and male runners the same and the females only seem to be plagued by more injuries because they are more communicative about what is hurting and how they are feeling?
Are there physiological differences (ie. hormones) between female and male runners that make females more prone to injuries?
Honestly, did you expect some answers in this post? I really just wanted to get all of our wheels spinning and see what other thoughts there are out there.
Today I am grateful for:
- Having Netflix again....because really, the selection at Redbox was too limiting for my taste in movies
- Being contacted by more winners....are you one of them? Check out the Leap Year Virtual Run results HERE
- Coffee makers with timers
- That my darling daughter didn't want me to leave this morning and gave me the best hugs.....although it did break my heart to hear her calling/crying for me as I left the house
- That the rain had stopped and my road wasn't a river this morning
