... and neither do ferrets. (Read 1332 times)

     I admit I got bored with the article and went back to stare at the picture for a bit

     

     

    I have to agree with this...the picture is much more entertaining than the article...


    Not A Runner

       They are, in biological terms, what’s called a noncursorial species, meaning that they are reluctant and lousy distance runners.

       

      I have more in common with ferrets than I previously thought.

        I don't know if it's fair to compare a ferret's distance running to a dog.  I guess it depends on the dog.  A wiener dog sure... not so much on a husky.

          I think my mother is a ferret...and my father smells of elderberries.

          Best Present Ever

            And no one ever let them in on a little secret: the first 2 miles ALWAYS suck.  If someone had told me that WAY back when I was in HS and refused to try XC it probably would have made all the difference.  I figured if a 1 mile warm-up sucked that it would only get worse.  When I figured this out in my 30s I mentioned this to my MIL (a long-time runner) and she agreed that the first 2 are almost never enjoyable.  WHY did she never tell me this during the times in my 20s when I would start and stop running after a few weeks?  I'm a GOTR coach, now...this is something I have made sure to mention to the girls when they are struggling.

             

            I tell people that all the time and they take it a sign of my lunacy. People will tell me they force themselves to crank out two miles on the treadmill, but 'hate running.'  I can't imagine anything worse than two miles on the treadmill.

              Truth.  Indoor cardio of any type really blows.  Hamster wheel...ick.
