Go For It!
It's been about a month and a half since I started running again and I've gotten into a good routine. Routine was what I wanted back in my marathon-training days. Settling into a nice pace was the only way to ensure finishing. Friday, I realized that at this time in my life, that wasn't exactly a good thing. I've been running the same intervals with the same incline for probably the past month and it's gotten very comfortable.
At first, I gradually increased my speed and interval length as I eased back in -to reduce risk of injury, of course. But it has been 1 1/2 months and Friday I decided that if I was going to make time for running 4 days a week - I better make the most of it. So I went for it! Twenty-five percent of American adults are completely inactive. I'm certainly on the other end of this spectrum...but that doesn't mean that it should be easy. If you're one of the few who make time for exercise, make sure you're not being too easy on yourself. Find a way to challange yourself. Sometimes you just gotta go for it!
