My Thoughts:

I find it interesting that this article says you shouldn't jog every day. Considering most sports train you vigorously 6 out of the 7 days in a week in similar activities, it makes me wonder about the consequences of training the same muscle groups daily. Are athletes more at risk for injuring themselves because they don't change up their exercise routines? And if exercise is so good for your body, why do few people choose to incorporate it into their routines? I personally love the feeling that I get right after a long run, and it makes me more energized and ready for the day. People underestimate the benefits of exercise, and it really isn't difficult to put on a pair of tennis shoes and go out for a run, no matter how long the distance. You control how you treat your body and you might as well treat it right!

My Thoughts:

Between sitting on the couch with a tub of ice cream and watching TV or going for a mile run outside in the cold, which would you rather pick? We can agree that the latter doesn’t sound as glamorous—being sweaty, pulling on the athletic gear, and being seen in public a state of matter you wouldn’t be caught dead in are all aspects you dread. But in the long run, it could lead to a better mood, a better body, and a more positive outlook on life. Ice cream and TV may benefit you in the moment, but in the long run, neither things  give you an advantage in life. I’ve found ways to make exercise more enjoyable; first was to change my mindset. Next was to find a routine that was beneficial to my body. Most people make the mistake of starting their first day with a fast-paced 10 mile jog, but that ends up being counterproductive. Not only do you begin to fear exercise, but your body would be sore for the next several days. By finding ways to incorporate exercise slowly into my daily routine, I’ve been noticing the effects on my body, temperament, and even work ethic.

My Thoughts:

As an athlete, training correctly is an important aspect to seeing improvement. In track and field, the event I train for is the 400 meter dash which is difficult because it is the mid-point between sprinting and long distance events. Most people opt out of the 400 because although it is technically long distance, you are still sprinting as if it were a short-distance event. This article has made me realize that runners have to train in all aspects in order to improve in their event. A long distance runner not only trains for marathons, but also does sprints on the track and runs on trails. A sprinter not only does short bursts, but practices for endurance by running 800 repeats. Overall, it is important to consider all aspects of training when practicing for an event-limiting training to just practicing for your event repeatedly will not improve your overall strength in the long run.
