Running is one of the most common movements we see people avoiding when it comes up on our programming.
And generally we hear the words “I don’t like running” or “I’m not very good at it” so instead we see our running days a bit quieter than say our burpee days - truth.
Anyway, obviously we understand completely that’s it hard to endure something you don’t necessarily feel strong doing or even enjoy doing, because you feel it’s a weakness.
We know that over-pacing can often throw a spanner in the works and we tend to see people hitting a threshold in which they find a challenge to sustain.
However, just like anything within our programming, we can scale back and build our engine through consistent exposure to running. We can reduce the distance and build aerobic capacity to then build intensity.
The more we practice something the quicker our bodies will adapt and get better.
The good news? Coming to class and being surrounded by people who are doing the same thing will make it an easier challenge to overcome.
Having said all that, of course there will be occasions when running isn't advised, depending on someone's physical ability at that time.
So don't worry, there will always be alternatives available to anyone and everyone.
