A college friend of mine had this photo up with a caption that running season has started. SRSLY? You need to ice your knees after you exercise? Cuz you HATE your knees? Cuz they were mean to you; disappointed you; shamed you? No, because running makes you”fit” right?!?
It boggles the mind. My springtime fb is filled with various woes of body breakdowns of runners. SRSLY. Why? Even when strength training is suggested, it’s scoffed as “it will interfere with my running.” SRSLY? Cuz you’re going to the running Olympics next week? Tell me you’re following a low fat diet too, cuz then I can feel confident in the fact that you’re an idiot.
Look, we get one real body on this go around in life. If you want to pound it into the ground, go right ahead. But no complaining. You choose to be weak and injured, own it. Those of us who want to be useful for as long as possible and strength train will carry you and your destroyed knees and hips up the stairs when you’re 40. Awesome. SRSLY.
Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.
