Myth #3: you can skip a few weeks of exercising and you’ll still be in shape.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work this way. Most people will lose muscle tone after just a one-week break from working out. So, even when you achieve the results you strived for, you shouldn’t give up exercising entirely.
Myth #4: either a marathon or nothing. Long-distance is the only way to go.
Not true. The people who prefer short distances have the same heart condition as those who run marathons. Besides, light exercises like jogging or even walking are better for the body. The heart and the vascular system can adjust to your workouts.
