Gazelle or Not? That’s This Guy’s Question.

In the pursuit of getting in serious badassed shape, this guy often guns it (relative to his level of comfort, not to an Olympic athlete nor to a passable hobbiest).  The idea, of course, is to make hay, to speed up the process, to show the gawkers at the gym what he’s really about: ass-busting.  But, there is a possibility that this approach to exercise is part of the doom cycle that often ends his new health-improvement regimes.  Why?  Because gazelle speed is hard and it hurts and exercise feels daunting many days.  Still, on better days, the competitor in him wants to waste the savannah with pounding hoof, because it feels good to be good at something (40-year-old man-speed, for instance).  So, as he mentally approaches today’s sled on the treadmill, Herbach asks, To Gazelle or Not?


The answer will soon present itself (about 13 minutes from now).
