Exercise vs. Training
Since I began blogging, and reading the blogs of runners, swimmers, bikers, who participate in marathons, half-marathons, and triathlons, I have discovered that there is a difference in exercise and training. What I do is exercise. I can see that training is so much more focused, organized, and intense. Of course to be training, you are training for something. You can't just exercise and plan to run a marathon or triathlon. You must set goals, schedules, and organized workouts. Now what I am wondering is how do you get to this point? Reading others' blogs? Reading books? Getting a trainer? Hmmmmm.......... I for sure need some hints. I do know the first thing I have to do is decide exactly WHAT I want to train for, and then I guess I can begin a plan of action. But for right now... I guess you can just say that I "just" exercise.
