"I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's pain- and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems that all you hear is 'don't overdo it' and 'don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond." -Bob Clarke (Philadelphia Flyers general manager)
I think that Bob Clarke's philosophy really seems to fit to my regime, both with individual runs and with my entire project. When I run, sometimes I push myself really hard, sometimes harder than it seems like I should. However, I feel like it is good for me to push myself to the limit, because if I don't push myself, how will I improve? I really want to get to a certain point in my running and I think that the only way to really get myself there is to push myself.
