Great article. Definitely agree with building the foundation first. It takes time letting your body acclimate but it's worth the investment. Also just got through the audiobook "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall and it opened my eyes on many things running related and was also an awesome and well written book. Highly recommend it to any one new or deep in the sport.
This was a great article for me, personally. I have always started out full speed ahead and then suffer with a lot of pain. Then eventually quit altogether. This time, I will start out slow and build up. Thanks for the great advice.
Great intro for me as I work my way back into running. I am signed up for a half in May next year and am only beginning. Sounds like I need to use my time well. What I liked about the article is the sensible approach to taking on a new challenge rather than 'let's get out there and do it!' Thanks!
