Smart Fitness Decisions

Last week, I talked about the importance of having a partner when working out for accountability purposes.  Well, this week, I’m harping on that again, this time from a safety standpoint.

I love running outside.  I mean, I love it.  If you put me on a treadmill, I get really bored really quickly.  This morning, I woke up at 2:30 and I was excited about life and potential career opportunities and just general progress.  So, after doing a couple professional development exercises and getting some documents updated and sent out, I decided I’d go on a run.  Here in Durham, we have this amazing trail that runs through a good chunk of the city and one entrance to the trail isn’t far from where I live so I decided I’d head out there and bust out a couple miles before work today.  Now, at 6:00 AM, the trail, which is poorly lit at some places, is not the safest place to run, especially not alone.  And I don’t say that because of the location but because crime can happen anywhere and, as crazy as this world is with everything from bombings because of religious beliefs to crazy old men punching vocal young men because of political beliefs, I figured it would be smarter for me to run indoors.  I’m definitely not trying to inspire a Law & Order SVU episode *cues theme music*.

I say all that to give you yet another reason to get a partner.  It can’t do anything but help.

 

Make your health a priority.
