At the age of 13, when I first began my journey as a runner, I knew that I had been given a gift and could someday rank among the best in the world. I also knew I was given that gift to help others. Running came easy, but I had no idea how to run for a good cause. It would be many years before I realized that when shared with others, running can be a win-win.
Most of us hit the gym with a loosely outlined plan, say 30 minutes of cardio followed by circuit training on the same six or seven machines. While fitting in any physical activity is better than none and consistency is key to seeing results, sticking with the same training routine day in and out might mean you’re neglecting some key muscle groups. Not only could this leave you with some weak areas, it may even set you up for sprains and strains.
When it comes to movement, I try to make my days as inefficient as possible. I know that sounds crazy—especially since my book is all about getting more out of doing less—but hear me out. By doing things less efficiently (walking to the coffee shop instead of brewing a cup at home, pacing inside while talking on the phone, choosing the stairs) I’m able to build more organic movement into my day and reach at least 10,000 steps.
