As a fitness coach I get this question all the time! My quick answer is always “yes,” which often leaves people feeling a bit perplexed. So Should I or Should I not?
Let me break this down into two questions:
Should I run? Yes, I think running is great. Running is a natural and instinctual movement. If you have read Born to Run, then you know all about how important running is to the health and survival of our genetics. If you haven't, then simply put: running can be a very efficient form of movement and something that makes humans unique. However I'm also not recommending you just jump off that couch and start running.
