5 Good Reads
1 ) Enough is Enough: Running Injury Guidelines – As someone who has seen their fair share of running injuries, I’ve picked up a few tidbits of knowledge along the way from physical therapy. I love this simple guideline that Anna, trail runner and PT, put together. Enough is enough with the injuries!
2 ) Why I DNS Three of My Goal Races This Year – First off, I love that Allie shared her roller coaster year of training and why she ultimately made the hard decision to DNS. Mental exhaustion from training is just as serious as physical injuries. Secondly, Allie, once again, finds a way to raise me up. <- Inside joke with Allie! 😉
3 ) One of “Those” Days – This post with Julie really hit home with me. I’ve been feeling quite down in the dumps about the current state of my ankle. I hate talking about it because I feel like I’m whining. And I feel like I’ve done all this whining way too many times. But in the grand scheme of things it’s peanuts compared to what is going on in the world. She also mentioned social media and how it seems we share really good things and really bad things. There’s no in between even though we all have the in between. It’s called life and one of those days.
4 ) An Ode to Year One – As I look at yet another Year One after my current injury, I’m questioning everything and wondering what’s my point. But then I read this and it kinds of calms my nerves.
5 ) Stories of Perseverance from UTMB – Extreme weather left this year’s UTMB (the race that travels 106 miles and over 32,000 vertical feet through the mountains of France, Italy and Switzerland), a free for all. The elites who were a predicted to win had a struggle just to finish. Stories like these make me marvel at what the body can do.
