From that coveted runner's high to improved sleep, creativity and memory, Team WR breaks down the mental benefits of running.
Ever have a dream in which you’re running in slow motion? Legs feel like lead. Each step requires extreme effort. No matter how hard you try, it’s as if you are trekking through a thick ocean of peanut butter instead of achieving a race PB. Turns out you are not alone in experiencing this sluggish struggle—slow-motion running is a common dream to have!
In addition to the slow-mo standard, runners can be subject to all kinds of crazy dreams the night before a race. We decided to compile a list of other experiences runners have during shut-eye sessions. Some are sweet dreams, and others are nightmares. See how many you can relate to.
