A word from Coach Gordo

We were discussing warmups on Minimalsit Runner, and I mentioned that I run slow enough that I can't really run slower to warm up, but I wasn't really worried about being slow.  Gordo had this encouragement for me:
> If I can get up to regular decently long runs at my slow
> pace, then I'll worry about how to speed up.

Time and heart rate are the goals not likely to get you in trouble.
Step one is to get healthy. Step two is to get fit. Step three is to get efficient. Getting fast might be step four. Or maybe I forgot one or two. ;) It's way down the list and if you never get there, so what?
