Making a Run Routine

Making a Run Routine

Running is an essential part of my fitness regime, but I’m no marathon runner.  I like to run short distances frequently, i.e.  2-3 miles, 3-4 times a week depending on whether or not my dancing knees are up for it.  I have kept this up for about three years, but before that running was just a cute theory.

For me, the essential part to developing a love for running was the time of day.  I play a NBA cheerleader on a VH1 show called Hit The Floor.  The rehearsals and shoot days are long and absolutely grueling on the body.  To get my blood pumping before work I started going on morning walks.   These walks turned into walk/jogs, turned into jogs and even jog/sprints.  I wove the practice into my morning essentials:  wake up, bathroom, coffee, lace up running shoes, brush teeth, go.  It became habitual and I performed better at work.  Give it a try.  If you’re not a morning person try make it a post-work must do.
