What If I Hate Running?

 
What happens when your new running habit isn’t going so well? You just don’t enjoy it. Your body aches. What can you do to keep going? Anahad O’Connor, Well reporter, spoke with Dr. Jordan Metzl, a sport medicine doctor about how you can turn a hatrd of running into a passion. Here’s what he had to say: 
Surprisingly, it’s not uncommon to start hating running. Dr. Metzl, who treats hundreds of athletes of all ages and ability, says he sees two types of runners: Those who love it, and those who don’t. 
For those who don’t, there are ways to make running more enjoyable and less of a physical or mental pain. Dr. Metzl’s suggestions: Join a running group. Listen to the news while you run – or your music, or a good audio book. 
There are also fun and free-spirited running events like the “Color Run,” the so-called happiest 5K on the planet, which takes place in cities across the globe. “Whatever it takes to get you going – don’t be shy,” Dr. Metzl says. “Whatever makes you smile and enjoy running, do that!” 
If you find running to be a pain, literally, then change your mechanics. Shorten your running stride, which causes much less stress on your knees, hips and back. Ideally your foot should strike the ground between 75 and 80 times per minute, Dr. Metzl says. For any walkers reading this, shorter strides and a higher cadence is just as beneficial. “In our lab at the hospital, we are constantly trying to get runners to shorten their strides as one of the major causative factors around injury prevention,” Dr. Metzl says. 
Be sure to strength train too. There are two idealized body types for running. For women, it’s roughly 5 feet tall and 100 pounds. For men, it’s roughly 5 foot 6 and 130 pounds. If you don’t fit that body type, then chances are you need stronger muscles. “Strength training for runners builds support around the skeleton, reduces joint loading forces, improves running economy and reduces injury risk,” Dr. Metzl says. “All of these things make running more enjoyable.”
Hope you find a way to get out and run with a smile on your face. 
Run Well!

HAPPY TOGETHER

https://youtu.be/9ZEURntrQOg

Imagine me and you I do
I think about you day and night
It's only right
To think about the girl you love
And hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up invest a dime
And you say you belong to me
And ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be
So very fine
So happy together

I can see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be
The only one for me is you
And you for me
So happy together

I can see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be
The only one for me is you
And you for me
So happy together

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be
The only one for me is you
And you for me

So happy together
So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together

Mistakes (part 3)

Nauseous
Undoubtedly the most common mistake i encounter. Contrary to almost ubiquitous misuse, to be 'nauseous' doesn't mean you've been sickened. It actually means you possess the ability to produce nausea in others. E.g., That week-old hot dog is nauseous.

Anxious
Unless yuo are frighned of them, you shouldn't say you're 'anxious to see your friends'. You are actually 'eager' or ' excited'. To be 'anxious' implies a looming fear, dread or anxiety. It doesn't mean you're looking forward to something.

Impactful
It isn't a word. 'Impact' can be use as a noun (e.g., The impact of the crash was severe) or a transitive verb (e.g., The crash impacted my ability to walk or hold a job.) 'impactful' is a made-up buzzword, colligated by the modern marketing industry in their endless attempts to decode the innumerable nuances of human behavior into a string of mindless metrics. Seriously, stop saying this.

Moot
Contrary to common misuse, 'moot' doesn't imply something is superfluous. It means a subject is disputable or open to discussion. E.g., The idea that commercial zoning should be allowed in the residential neighborhood was a moot point for the council.

Nor
'Nor' expresses a negative condition. It literally means 'and not'. You're obligated to use the 'nor' form if your sentence expresses a negative and follows it with another negative condition. 'Neither the men nor the women were drunk' is a correct sentence because 'nor' expresses that the women held the same negative condition as the men. The old rule is that 'nor' typically follows 'neither' and 'or' follows 'either'. However, if neither 'either' nor 'neither' is used in a sentence, you should use 'nor' to express a second negative, as long as the second negative is a verb. If the second negative is a noun, adjective, or adverb, you would use 'or', because the initial negative transfers to all conditions. E.g., He won't eat broccoli or asparagus. The negative condition expressing the first noun (broccoli) is also used for the second (asparagus).
