When you have to take time off from running, you probably freak out; most runners do. Once we’re in the habit, we can’t even imagine not running. After all, it’s part of our identity, a big part. Time off from running leaves a gaping hole in our day, and if it occurs several days in a row, it’s like a crater in our lives, right?
Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit, but it does have a major impact on any runner’s psychie. Some runners handle time off from running better than others, but for most of us, from beginner runners to veterans, it puts us a little off kilter, to say the least.
I’ve got a different take on it, a very different perspective, probably. Please have a listen. I guarantee you will find it helpful the next time you find that you have to take a few days off from running training. Hopefully, an improved perspective will even encourage you to make the wise decision to take a hiatus from running training once in a while.
If you adopt my philosophy, you will become an empowered runner, in complete control of your mental attitude, able to take the brief running hiatus in stride. LOL! Yes, pun intended. Hehe!
