THE 30-MINUTE RUN RULE

Canadian Running - - ONE WORKOUT -

Af­ter a long day teach­ing gym, the last thing I wanted to do was get out the door for a run. The sofa looked invit­ing. My for­mer coach Steve Boyd gave me some ad­vice that I of­ten think back to: “If you think you are too tired to run, get dressed, get out the door and de­cide af­ter 30 min­utes of easy run­ning. Still tired af­ter 30 min­utes? Go home.” Five out of 10 times I run I don’t want to start. Ten min­utes into the run, I’m al­ways happy I did.
