I recently wrote a post about a web-based app called RouteShuffle and I mentioned that I hate running.
In the course of my past two Spartan Race seasons, I have completed ~28mi of race per year, with some training runs between 1-5 miles. You'd think with the races plus training, I would have gotten over my severe dislike of running, but unfortunately I have not learned to love running one bit. On one hand, you really don't have to do things you hate once you're an adult, and obviously I have gotten by with doing as little running as possible. On the other hand, you probably wouldn't get very far in life if you avoided doing everything unpleasant, so I decided to really get to the bottom of why I hate running so much.
I was recently invited to try a complimentary class at my local TruFusion that opened up in North Scottsdale and jumped at the offer. This year, with 6+ races on the calendar, I am looking for ways to keep my training interesting and find new challenges, so the offer to attend a group fitness class came at a great time.
