At the end of the day we were all born to run. Despite this, I’m sure you’ve heard people say “You are going to ruin your knees from running” or “Humans aren’t designed to run long distance.”
- Do the exercise that you love to do
Exercise is easier when you enjoy it. Don’t get bogged down exercising in a manner that is not fun. Get your fitness in ways you love and your performance will continue to improve.
- Vary your training in style and load
Variation is the key to avoiding the training plateau. This goes not only for training load, but for type of activity as well. Break things up, keep your body guessing, and don’t be predictable.
