Slow Running

My content suffers a bit on Mondays because my schedule is so full. 

When we begin running, it's important to remember that to get fitter, healthier, and maybe even faster, you have to do a lot of slow running, The standard is to run as slowly as you can. Heart rates don't lie. Beginners often run too hard. I know I did. To prevent yourself from going out too fast, imagine having a big sign on your back that says "SLOW DOWN." If you do, you'll stop huffing and puffing and actually enjoy your run.

Pretty simple and common concept, but perhaps an important one.
