Happy High Five Friday!
I’m changing things up just a tad bit today. I’m only sharing 4 pics from Instagram and 4 good reads. Craziness, I know, but it’s ok people. We’ll be ok.
1 ) No training plan = nothing but fun runs. I’m really enjoying this base building time.
2 ) That day after snowstorm (that turned to freezing rain!!!) glow. I love when it’s a bluebird sky day after a storm. Everything sparkles.
3 ) I can and I will.
4 ) Some days you eat all the kale. Sometimes kombucha and peanut butter pretzels are lunch. It’s called balance.
A Positive Mindset – As someone who knows what it’s like to be on the injured list, I can definitely agree that mindset is what makes or breaks an injury recovery. It sucks but you can’t wallow it. Find what you can do and do all that you can to get back to where you want to be.
Life Weights, Eat More Protein, Especially if You’re Over 40 – I’d like to think this would be good for any age but yes, especially the older we get. I see how much muscle mass we lose as we age in my patients. Resistance training, with weights, bands or body weight is beneficial for any age.
Why I Skipped Dry January – I’m sure you’ve seen the whole Dry January thing – abstaining from alcohol for the first month of the year. Like Amanda, I didn’t jump on that bandwagon. First of all, I’m not a huge drinker. Second, I like to have a glass a wine or a beer a couple of times a week. For some who over did it during the holidays, I can see how drying out in January would be a good thing.
What would you like to High 5 this week?
