Running with asthma may seem impossible. But as an asthmatic, I promise you can become a runner if you know these three things when you start!
I’m not scared of ghouls and ghosts. My biggest fear isn’t something popping out of the shadows to eat my brains. It’s the fear of getting fat again.
Stop overthinking your goals and resolutions and go break a sweat. You will always fail to get results if you keep making excuses not to work out.
Today’s run was pretty easy. A 9:27 mile, and my heartrate never went over 165, really. Not that I noticed, at least. And that’s awesome. Recovery runs aren’t meant to tax you. They are just there to keep you moving and making sure your body doesn’t wither away into a lifeless husk.
Day two of the runstreak happened. I recorded while dripping sweat from my run (or maybe it was from the rain that started in while I was out). I ran 1.1 miles, and my shoelaces came untied at 0.9. Never try to run a quarter mile with loose shoes. It’s just bad.
If your mouth is dry and you feel thirsty, it’s already too late–you’re on the way to dehydration. Even if you think you’re drinking enough, you’re probably not (we all overestimate how much we drink). So drink up, geeks!
Stop making excuses. You have to carve out time for the life you want to live and the way I want to live it.
If you want lasting wellness, you have to change the way you live your life every single day.
If you’re snacking and you want to just binge eat until you are 100% ready to pop, make sure you’re doing it with fruits and veggies, not candies, cookies, or cakes.
That’s what it means to be a runner. Running never gets any easier, guys. You just learn how to deal with it. You just keep on running.
