Starting To Run

Who doesn’t love running? If I was to poll our gym, my guess would be that 90% of our members, including me, would say that we’d rather lift weights! Running isn’t as fun, but it is extremely beneficial and it’s an important part of your training.

Far too often athletes avoid what they aren’t good at and they pursue their strengths. This leaves a very large gap in their fitness capacity. Running is one of the most avoided exercises by all exercisers and in our gyms over the years, it’s without a doubt the one area people complain about.

Here are some common things I hear annually:

“I hate running!” -One of the most common quotes I’ve heard over the years.

“I wish we ran more!” -I’ve heard this quote handful of times over the last 12 years.

“Why are we running so much?”-Another one of the greatest hits. If we run more than once a week, get ready for that line…

“I wish we lifted more.”-I’ve heard this more times than I can count.

I write these quotes just to prove a point. People aren’t too fond of running, but they are fond of doing what they’re good at and what’s more comfortable. I’m no exception.

One of the best things you can do to increase your fitness capacity and reach your goals is to actively pursue what you hate and what you aren’t good at. If running is one of them, here is a free 6-week running ramp-up program:

I hope this helps to get you in running shape this year! You don’t have to run all the time, but you should run.
