Break the running rules

That old saying, ‘Rules were made to be broken’ applies to running.  Certainly in my case I’ve broken them all consciously or through ignorance:

  • Stretch before running.  Nope!
  • Stretch after running.  Not for me.
  • Not running when sick.  I’ve done this so often I can’t remember the last time I didn’t run when I had a cold.
  • Speed work.  I’m inconsistent. Then when I head to the track I go too hard and get injured.

I’m pretty sure that if I’d been more aware of what I was doing I might have run faster.  But the pure joy of just running is what I live for.  I just like to go out for a run.  If you’re like me…or even if you’re not…this article by Jennifer Gray is all about her lifelong enjoyment of running while breaking all the rules: Breaking the Rules.


What running rules do you break?

Until next time…
