My friend Kelly and I run up the same hill almost every time we run. For those of you live in hilly terrain, you need to know that most things around here are pretty flat.
That hill is fairly steep, but not that long. Virtually every time i run it, I can feel my oxygen depletion the last 10 meters or so. Then I reach the top, regain my wind within a few strides, and keep going.
The facts I just shared with you were part of an interesting conversation yesterday. How do you know it's time to press your limits and how do you know when its time to stop and rest?
One extreme can be pure laziness and the other could ultimately lead to life or death.
The easy answer (I think) is that there's no easy answer!
So, reader, how do you figure it out in your life?
