We are training for our first cross crountry race!
The inner spirit of running is also different from that of most other sports.It can be competitive or it can be non competitive as you chose to make it.Running may well turn out to be one of the most significant experiences of you're life.Yet it doesn't always seem fun when you first try it.You're muscles may be soft,you're joints may be stiff and you're heart and lungs aren't use to working work hard.
As a result you'll feel slow and awkward when you run and will ache a bit afterwards.
But even if you're severely out of condition it only means it will take a bit longer to get back into shape.I ask you to trust me,"THE GOAL"I promise is worth the struggle.Within a few weeks you'll be covering 4-5km at a time.After a run you'll feel refreshed.You'll have more energy and more zest.You'll take more pleasure in both school and play.You'll sleep more soundly and feel better then before.
Its best when its worked into the fabric of you're life's,as an indispensable part of each day.So start slowly.If you read a lot about Running you'll often come across"train don't strain"you'll improve just as quickly rather take it easy than continually flogging yourself to go further and faster.
Do you remember the first time you tried to play soccer or netball?Wasn't it awkward to kick the ball or pass the ball the way you're coach wanted you to.Running is like that.Everybody knows how to run.Further more the more you run the more efficient your styles becomes.Just run,breath naturally.Remember that you running not just for fitness but for fun.
Running is a holiday for everyday chores,a special treat for you're mind and body if you concentrate on the fun the fitness and style will take care of themselves.
