Exercise vs Training

Though not everyone may agree on the following definitions, for the purposes of this article they will meet our needs. Plus, they provide a suitable framework for distinguishing between different types of physical activities.

Two Marathons, Then and Now

In my late 20s (I’m now 52), I did a lot of trail running. One day in August of 1997, a friend I ran a lot with back then suggested we run the Breckinridge Trail Marathon together. It sounded like a fun thing to do so I agreed. It just so happened the race was taking place the following week. In other words, although we’d been running a lot, we’d not planned on running the marathon or structured our trail running to prepare for such an undertaking. We merely saw it as an opportunity to do a long run.

It incrementally increases in difficulty so you continue to improve your strength and conditioning. It makes room for rest and recovery. And it provides an opportunity to gauge improvement in performance.
