I ran with Hale and we also tried this method, it was effective.
When we talked about some topics, such as tiredness, strain, feet blister and annoyed matters. Exercise seemed to be boring and painstaking. But situation may not always like this. But because you have an objective in your heart, the hard work can be endurable and fascinating. Run less if your tiredness exceeds your pleasure. In any case, we run mainly for pleasure, but not to find bitter.
Running with one of your friends is a good way to enhance your exercise fun. You will not put your mind to the uncomfortable situation, and half of the time will go faster. Moreover, another way to run is to alter the types of running. Or put more time on it, rather than caring about how far you run. I just go out with my watch and find a place where I want to go. If I felt I used eight minutes to run one mile, I would run the distance of seven miles with one hour. Maybe I would count a few hundred yards wrong, but it was not too much different.
I do not like running, but some people seems to be more tired than I do. They take the transistor radio or that kind of funny headphones, which will make them, look like Mickey Mouse. Supposing that you have to listen to Bach's music or Rangers' tune, then carry your radio to accomplish your exercise. In the marathon race, I even saw some runners carried something. However, most people will soon find that running itself is a funny thing.
After a few months' earnest training, you will find a little easier to run. For the same distance, your running time can be cut down. You can surpass your rivals if you participate in a match. Under this circumstance, you are subject to be inspired and can not be able to stop exercising. This is the time you have to be cautious. As you may exercise too little, you can always exercise too much. As we pointed out before, after a painstaking exercise, it takes time to recover from fatigue. The stage of resting is an essential part in exercising activities.
If you are an old runner, your exercise must be restrained by the following two factors. The length of distance you run and the amount of exercise you stand. Corbett said that if a middle aged marathon athlete wants to run a distance the same to a young runner, he probably needs to run about nine or ten miles everyday. He has to make more efforts on running if he wants to get a good grade. However, if he only attends a competition occasionally about five or six miles, then run two miles a day is enough. As we pointed out before, a lot of runners had no interests in a competition. To these people, you can be healthy and pleasant as well if you run eight or ten miles everyday.
Although old runners may run as far as young runners. But except few exceptions; their speed is not as fast as young runners. Of course, the reason is that their body condition is slowing down gradually. Countless scientific reports indicate that our muscle strength, coordination, the maximum cardiac rate and oxygen consumption will reduce when we grow older and older. Our ability to adapt to the heat is also like this.
