Another realisation on running…

18 Dec

I know you folks hear a lot about running and may be bored to death. But, I have to write about it since that’s all I am doing these days..:).. Well, I recently had a different perspective on running and I thought I will share it with you all.

If you think about long distance running, I think there are only 2 factors that are very vital. One is the cardio factor and the other is the muscle factor. It is all about sustaining a higher heart rate for longer periods of time and having the muscle power to endure the distance. What it means is that, for being a good long distance runner, one need not run several times a week, but rather, mix it up with other activities which can get your heart rate to increase or get your running muscles worked up. Running performance will be an immediate by-product!

    One very good thing about running is, it gives sometime alone to think. Come to think of it, only other time I get is when I drive to/from work.
