Passionate Runner: Worst Thing About Running

another in a series of podcasts on running, this one expanding upon Mike Antonucci's posting on the Complete Runner Network about what the worst thing about running is.

Time: 4 minutes, 42 seconds

I have been sitting on the sidelines myself with an injury and I am not looking forward to the comeback road for the reason that the pace and conditioning will not be there. However, I will be RUNNING again and taking it slow and easy building gradually will make it worthwhile. Eventually the day will come when I can do what I used to (pre-injury). In the meantime, I need to make the comeback slow and careful to avoid a repeat. The absolutely worse thing is NOT being able to run.

Inspired by the Complete Running Network posting by Mike Antonucci on "The Worse Part of Running"

The "one month for every one week off" rule is actually for one week of zero activity (ie complete bedrest), based on a study published in a book I admit I can't remember the name of. Read it in the Andover library one day, while trying to kill a couple of hours.

Thanks, Scot. I'll go looking again some time and maybe I'll find it, no that I know it is indeed out there.

The motivation to find the needle in the haystack is greater when you know it is there as opposed to "it might be there".
