The Running DNA : Every mile counts

dna

Definition of DNA: A nucleic acid that carries informations in the cell and is capable of self-replication.

A period of missing running is always a difficult experience, either you are a beginner or a veteran in our sport.

Days, weeks or even months without running because of injury, work or life. Longer the break is more
the distance of what you were and what you are now as a runners feels far to reach again.

The impact of not running is physical, mental, and for sure psychological. … the opposite is also so true.

Our running body remembers and is ready to take over, in the right moment, in the right way, if you give it a chance.
Have faith in you and in what is imprinted in your body’s DNA. This is your endless and your only real recorder. We were born with this., and for this.

After a few steps, a few miles, a few runs (it will vary for each one of us), the running body will take over. It will start doing what it loves to do,
it will be loose and you will have the sensation that you are in the flow with it.

I remember the gratitude and happiness I felt when I share this experience with my running body.
Reversing the roles, instead of me giving the command, I trusted, I listen, I follow.

Our running body remembers. Thank God, not only what we did not do but also everything we ever did with it.
Just as it will remember what you choose to do right now. This is one reason long runs are so beneficial. This is why any training is never lost.

    I can say that this holds true. It’s like riding a bike because your body remembers what it needs to do. Even though that dreaded “r” word (rest) gets used, sometimes we really need it.

    I am experiencing this now. I had to take a break from running due to a back injury from a car accident. I have this urge every day to run, but i’ve held off due to the pain. I do feel confident though, that when I start to run again, that it will kick back in full swing. It’s in my DNA! 🙂

    Running is part of my DNA, not the act of running but the way I feel after I am done. While I an running I question why am I doing this to myself. When finish I feel so good both mentally and physically that I get up the next morning and do it again. It keeps me balanced.

  14. I have not run for six years until this week! I ran track through school and I enjoyed it. I gained so much weight and considered myself done with running. I have lost 76+ pounds and tried running this week. I was amazed at what my body could do again! I am sold!
