Too much, too soon                               

As I return to running, I got this reminder from the company "Be Healthy" email.  Good timing on this reminder.  

Many people who are new to running (or starting again) make the "terrible too's" mistake. They get so excited and enthused about their running that they do too much mileage, too fast, too soon. They mistakenly think that "more is better" when it comes to running. As a result, they often start to develop common overuse running injuries.  After purchasing good running shoes, start with a walk/run routine and increase the running time gradually as your muscles, tendons and joints adapt.

I am way TOO smart to ignore the advice.
