Like most working professionals with careers outside of running who still strive to run fast, I tend to cut corners due to the limited time in my schedule.
Instead of the extra five minutes to do some strides after a run, I jump in my car to head off for something else that needs to be done.
I tell myself. It is just this one time. Then, it happens again and again. Soon, I am just jumping in car every time and without doing anything.
Overtime, my legs grow accustom to running slower and before I realize it, this becomes my new norm.
Getting out of the “slow” norm and back to the “fast” norm is never easy.
We all budget our daily lives. 5 minutes goes here. An hour goes there. Before you know it, the day is over.
I wish I could set here and tell you that I have a solution for this issue, but I don’t. I struggle with the same problem.
But over the coming weeks, I do plan to share what I will be doing to get my legs turning over faster.
Stay tuned here
Sharing one thought at time,
