Why Trainers Say “Slow Down”

No Comments

My dad emailed me this article and I thought it was really interesting, so I thought I would share it. It’s a little long, but it’s a great read.

When his running coach implored him to take rest days, Bill Carr didn’t listen. Slated to run a 100-mile ultramarathon this month, the 36-year-old cranked up his workouts over the summer, running more and harder miles than his coach recommended.

Running coach Julie Fingar guides Bill Carr, who ran too much and injured his ankle, in drills at a Twin Rocks trail near Folsom Lake in Granite Bay, Calif.

Sometimes the pop tarts were exchanged for a cookie, but the Sunkist was essential. Back in the day, I probably had at least 3-4 a day MINIMUM. My addiction to soda started in around 7th grade, but lasted until I started eating healthier at some point during senior year of high school.

Since that day, I have not had a single drop of soda (regular and diet). The first few weeks were tough, but once February rolled around, I did not even think about it.
