It's a cardio week.  Time to get back into the swing of things and start up our running again.  

We pick our running up every year at about this time. Over the winter we deliberately cut back on running to focus more on strengthening, shaping and tissue reinforcement. Around mid-March (weather permitting) we begin to re-shift our focus back to a more cardiovascular meso-cycle.  For the next 6 months we will put to use all that strengthening, shaping and healing we built over the winter season.       

Running is a beautiful thing.  (Read & Share - Running is Probably Human) It puts health & fitness onto you in ways that are unparalleled.  It's weird. There is nothing like it. You can do other forms of cardio if you want, but nothing will slim you down and shape you up like running will. Maybe it's the impact.  Maybe it's the jostling.  You just can't get the same bang for your buck with cycling, rowing, swimming, or ... anything, really.  Even if you do these (cycling, rowing, etc.) at HIGHER intensities.

But, this is only true to a point. 

You can over-do running. (Read & Share - "How To Undo All That Running") Many will. Some will see so much change from our 2-5 miles of running per week, they'll mistakenly think that if ONE is good, TWO will be better.  It's a slippery slope, man. Don't fall down it.

We'll put the right amount of running onto you weekly.  Some weeks we'll do more.  Others less.  All will be designed for your increased health and fitness. This week is a good start to what will be a very fun season!  


Smile! (Morgan)
