I love when you step on to the starting line no matter how nervous you are, how bad you’re shaking, all the injuries you’re imagining, and being pretty sure you have to pee, as soon as the gun goes off you forget everything, and you just run.
Hi, i started running a few weeks ago, i'm really enjoying so far but my back hurts a lot when i finish, is it normal? am i doing something wrong? also, do you have any advice in general for a beginner like me?
Try stretching it! Lean down to touch your toes and really focus on stretching your back. Don’t push yourself too hard as a beginner. Your body needs to get used to the strains of running so if it starts to hurt, take a walking break. Increase gradually. :) Good luck!
during the summer, you have to worry about heat rashes, and soaking your shirts through. you want to take a water bottle with you, but you know it’s a hassle to carry it on your run.
during the winter, it’s so cold that your joints are stiff. you want to wear leggings, but you know you’re going to heat up towards the end. not to mention, the air is so thin, you can hardly breath.
then there’s the usual problems of dry heaving, athlete’s foot, eating properly, injuries. running is literally the punishment of all other sports.
so, yes. running sucks.
but you know what sucks even more?
not running. which is why i still run. as much as i hate running, i hate not running a whole lot more.
