Happy High Five Friday
I post more pics on Instagram. Are you following me?
1. Fall splendor. I’m holding on to this vision for the next 6 months when everything goes dark and blah. And white.
2. Good ol’ wheel pose. So thankful my back is feeling better than ever.
3. Monster walks are back in my life. After having a physical therapy evaluation earlier this week (to get to the root of why I got Achilles tendinopathy in the first place), it was quite evident that my balance is off and my hips are weakened (again). And I thought I was being so good with all my other exercises.
4. Sunset. It’s beautiful but why does it have to be at 4:15 p.m.?
5. Pineapple, black beans, roasted butternut squash and corn on top of quinoa. Random but a delicious dinner.
1. Dear Daughter – I love this piece from a dad to his daughter about life lessons learned from losing weight and running. I say it to anyone and everyone – running is SO much more than exercise.
2. Is it better to run for time or miles? – This question came up in our small group activities during RRCA Running Coach certification in June. I prefer miles, but a lot of my team liked prescribing time. Our coach for Boston is also using time. What do you prefer?
3. Building Her Own Running Team – Of course, I want my kids to run, but forcing them isn’t going to make anyone happy. I’m following Amanda’s advice for getting my fleet of runners. BTW – super exciting to see Amanda on Zelle!
4. Do You Get What I’m Saying? – Thanksgiving is next week which means you may be around more family members than usual. Before you start chattering to Uncle Ned about running, make sure you print this handy guide out for him.
5. The Toughest Race I’ve Ever Run – My latest post for Competitor Magazine relives my horrible first marathon. You would think I’d never want to run that distance again. But actually, it’s fueled my desire to get back into the pain cave. I’m not letting it beat me. Now if I can just stay healthy enough to run another.
What would you like to high 5 today?
What has been the toughest race you’ve ever run?
