You don’t need anything but running shoes to start running. But having some basic gear can make a big difference and keep you going.
Being a runner takes a lot of fuel. But if you just eat haphazardly, you may be doing more harm than good. Here are some ways you can fuel yourself the smart way.
The goal is to move more and be more active than you currently are. You don’t have to hit the gym. You don’t necessarily have to set time aside for it. You just have to incorporate moving into your life more often.
Day 4! Woo! I only ran a mile today, but I did it faster than I did yet: 8:54. I look forward to when my typical mile time gets down to the 7:50-8min mark again. That’s always a good boost to my confidence.
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.
Mike Sweetman guest posts today to let us in on his Jedi Mind Trick to mindfulness and wellness so that we can unplug from our phones and plug into our lives.
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’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.
Going to the gym shouldn’t be a punishment. Find your fun to stick with fitness. When you do, working out won’t feel like work at all.
