Passionate Runner: The blahs are okay

Another in a series of podcasts on running, this one dealing with the blahs. It's okay if you don't feel like running one day. Take it off, the rest will do you good. A positive attitude is more important that being guilty about missing a day.

Time: 4 minutes, 2 seconds

Notes that were used to create this podcast:

run regularly, but occasionally you just don't feel up to it
there are life events, work and family conflicts
commute delays weather and or ...

all of which can spark the blahs
don't dwell on it, don't feel guilty about it
take it easy, make it a deserved rest day
use the time for recovery
alternative workouts can take the place of the run

a bike ride
a good walk
a swim
time in the weight room
or doing some stretching

the real key is to maintain a positive attitude
