Getting in shape is hard…
It isn’t just the physical aspect but the time effort and change of lifestyle. Now, I know you are all thinking lifestyle? Don’t you own and work at a running store? Yes, but Run Away isn’t just that but a business as well and that means I have to work more often than play during the day. I also have a better appreciation of other families who have small children and who are great shape. I had previously under estimated sleep and how important it was to recovery and ability to function on a day to day aspect of getting back into shape. I have chosen to get back in shape by doing more than just run because there is more to life than just walking or running in a straight line. TRX and lifting are my main avenues to building muscle and trimming down other than getting out for runs. I encourage all runners to try other forms of exercise to keep you well rounded. You will be amazed at the benefits and may even help with many running injuries.
I have a long way to go… See you at the running events later this year. If you are looking for a good 10K Try the Badger State 10K on April 2nd sponsored by Brooks.
