Running And Sex!

I always get a good laugh whenever distance running is compared to sex. Indeed, there are similarities as i remember a short article published at RW way back that compares these two strange bedfellows:

  • You don’t want to peak too soon
  • Endurance is more important than speed
  • Even-pacing is crucial. Fartleks are discouraged
  • The more you speed-up, the more labored your breathing will be
  • Rest is required between repetitions
  • Warming up is desirable before plunging into action
  • Have to deal with performance anxiety
  • You eat whatever you want during long hauls
  • You’re reaching the climax when you see the finish line
  • It’s hard to achieve negative splits (Can you?)
