Live Well
Challenge Yourself!
by Tammy Lapierre on November 15th, 2014

 Why does Working out always feel hard ?
 
Exercise is work. It elevates your heart rate, makes you somewhat breathless, and causes your muscles to burn. It's tiring—sometimes exhausting.
Yes, exercise does get easier with time, but it will never be "easy." If it were easy, it wouldn’t be exercise.

​You see, beyond just getting your body  moving (which is great but will only get you so far), exercise has to challenge you. You have to work past your comfort zone in order to train your heart, lungs, and muscles to get stronger and fitter. Over time, yes it will become easier to walk at the 3 mph pace you started, but once that becomes easy, it's time to walk faster, which brings me to another cold, hard truth: You have to work harder as you get fitter. Think of it exercise as a challenge to continuously improve on what you just accomplished.
