One of my best friends Chelsea Baughman asked me today on Facebook, "So this whole running thing...when do I stop hurting? lol baaaa!"
My response was:
1- Do you stretch?
2- What kind of running shoes do you have?
3- Drink a LOT of water!
I also have another secret to make the hurt stop...Before I go for a run, I make sure I pump myself up physically and mentally.
I always - always pick one of my favorite songs on Youtube and literally dance around the house while I stretch. Today, Justin & Bandit danced + stretched with me. I am not kidding, I do this every single time.
Side note: For some reason, Blogger fails to upload videos without making me look like I'm moving / talking a million times faster than normal - but this case - it actually makes it funny. I will post the "real" version on Facebook later.
Have fun. Dance. Laugh. Stretch. Run. Come home - chug water!
That's the secret to making the hurt stop.
