I have no clue what's happened (I just one day decided to start running), but I love it.
|Pretend running on the beach three years ago.|
That was about all the running I could do back then.
I know I know... many people say running is bad for dancers because of the pressure it puts on the joints. But, to be honest, I haven't felt that. Maybe because I've supplemented my running with weight training, but my knees and ankles have never felt better. And I'm very conscientious of stretching my 'quad' muscles after a run so they won't bulk up. (Bulky quadricep muscles are a big no-no for dancers).
|Before last week's photo shoot, I made sure to fit in a run to help me feel strong and empowered about my body.|
It totally helped! The endorphins running through me lasted all day long.
So far, I haven't wanted to scream at the treadmill and/or die. I'm taking this as a good sign.
Any tips for a newbie runner?
