The world is not flat

kidsrunninguphillwebsiteWhen training it is necessary to spend time on the treadmill. It provides protection from the harshest elements of nature, control over speed, consistency to focus on form, and you can even catch up on TV while doing it. When you have a knot in your calf muscle it is a great way to keep up your fitness while not further frustrating an already painful situation.

This environment is not real though, and you do have to go out and brave the elements, disciple yourself for the speed you want, choose form over ease, and maybe you can still listen to a podcast. There will be moment when even though you are extremely careful you will run across the street and not see that it is unleveled and scrape your foot making your calf muscle feel like it will explode. Not to mention the areas you know are filled with bumps that you have to breath deep and relax and trust your not going to injure yourself.

Life is interesting and reading, studying and dreaming about it is necessary, but go ahead and step out. It’s not flat, but that is what makes it so much fun and interesting.

The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.

-Gustave Flaubert
