Nearly 10 years ago my then manager announced to everyone that he's training for a marathon. It had been in the center of winter. Cold, gloomy, freezing. What an idiot, I thought. Did he not have access to better things to do? He would come to work and inform us he had run at nighttime in early hours from the morning with freezing temperatures outside. Sometimes, even snow. The fool. Why would anyone put themselves through such torments? Not to mention the gruelling distance he was trying to run.
How Things Change?
10 years on along with a year into my running obsession, I find that i'm that very same idiot I perceived my boss to be. Or at least known by others in the same way. Wish I'd known how thrilling it was back then. How things can change around, eh? Have you had a similar experience? It would happen to be a benefit if he explained how great it had been at the time. But would I have listened? Most likely not. Several things you have to grow into.
Maybe I Can Help
If you are toying using the idea of running, I only say get it done! When you have used it once but are unsure, I only say do it! For those who have been running for a while but are not finding joy in it, I say reevaluate your technique. With running, we take something for granted - all of us think we all know how it's done. You put on your shoes, leave the house and start running. Is that you? Have you ever read an article or perhaps a book about running, or taken a tutorial? Lots of people visit the gym and get advice from the trainers concerning the exercises they should do, but exactly how lots of people get assistance with running?
Get Some Advice
As I was starting running, I stumbled upon a wonderful book by Stu Mittleman, who is a stamina runner. Reading it had been a good thing I possibly could did when it comes to running. I have adopted board most of his techniques and thanks to that, one year on, I'm enjoying running inside your. It gives me great energy. Keeps me in shape and relaxed.
So go on, perform a little bit of reading, find a technique that caters best to your requirements, put on your athletic shoes and choose a run.
