Running doesn't make you fitter
Yes...this is the reason why i seldom do 2 consecutive days run... I happened to read this article on Runner's World March 2006...cannot find it on the website... The whole article's main point is just in the very first paragraph: "Running doesn't make you fitter. If it did - if you actually got fitter while you ran - you would be stronger in the last mile of a marathon than the first. And we all know that's rarely the case" "It's recovering from running that makes you fitter" The point is, running is damaging. But it is the recovering process after your run that make you a fitter!!! Isn't our body wonderful!!! So remember, REST WELL after a good run....The harder the run, the more rest is needed to make YOU STRONGER!!!
