** RUMINATIONS

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I just don’t get it. Why are there so many people running in the gym on treadmills? I get it when it is cold and/or windy and/or snowy, or it gets dark out early and it feels unsafe. But last night??

It was beautiful out and the humidity had dropped and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I know the gym is air conditioned and many of the machine create a breeze but that ain’t my sport. What’s wrong with it you ask?

  1. It takes boring to a new level.
  2. It has to be wearing on the joints. The same repetitive motion without curbs and stones, and generally uneven surfaces
  3. Most of the machines are as hard as cement, although some of the newer machines have a softer surface
  4. It’s hard to stop (maybe that’s a good thing)
  5. They only run for 60-90 minutes and they shut down.
  6. In a gym there is some protocol that you have to get off after 20 minutes if there are people waiting.

Oh, and did I mention it’s boring????

Your friend in running,

Anon

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

Different people come with different talents, but all runners need to be aerobic and able to supply oxygen at a certain tempo for a long period of time and have lactic acid tolerance.

—Joe Douglas

Weight training doesn't help runners move faster. But it can prevent injuries and it's motivational. That's why I use it.

—Joe Douglas

Runners should do a little work on their abdominals, because it helps keep their body mechanics comfortable. Training biceps and triceps doesn't do anything in running. If you were running on your hands it might be good, but you're not.

—Joe Douglas
