When I first began running I simply got up, pulled on my running gear and headed out the door. No stretching, no warm up just out and into the fastest pace I could muster. I didn't know anything about technique and over trial-and-error...and some injuries...became a pretty good runner. Well, I run every day!
Fast-forward to my current state as a 'Seasoned Runner', a great phrase coined by my good friend, Dan Cumming (Running in the Zone) and it's not so simple. It takes me a good hour in the morning now to get my engine revving. I've started to do some pre-run stretching and I start off slowly as I ease into an early morning run.
I love running and want to continue for many more years. I've started to pay attention to non-running physical activities that will help make me a better runner...and reduce injuries. Viola: Yoga for Runners:
Until next time...
