Running Realities

Some realities about running...

Some days running feels free and easy.  Other days your legs feel like lead and your lungs feel like they are going to colapse.

Running can make you feel young and unstoppable one minute, old and decrepit the next - and this all in the same run.

Sometimes running gets your bowels moving.

The same pair of shoes that are comfortable for 3 miles will give you blisters after 10.

The first day you wear shorts for a run outside and realize that your legs look great because you've been working out all winter is a good day.

One tough run will make you question the sanity of that race goal that you set for a few months from now.

Running is incredible cardio.

Endurance run 40 minutes, 4x100 strides - Approx. 4.25 miles
This was one of those days where running just does not feel good.  Really, though, I've had more of the good days so far this season than the bad.  I can't complain.
