It has been too long since my Garmin has registered anything over 5 miles. This can be attributed to feeling a little under-the-weather, running with an RB that pushes the pace but not the distance (yet…), and choosing to get my daily Sweat other ways to switch things up. It can also be attributed to slight bout of laziness on my end, resulting in a little restless energy to get back to those double digits.
I can feel the itch coming on – I need a race, I need a challenge.
The great thing that’s coming from all of the above is the fact that my speed is slowly increasing – Running Buddy (RB) Power, at its best!
I realized this morning that I have three important RBs here – two in physical form, one in my head.
That sounds crazier than it should. Hear me out…
Cait pushes me at her comfortable pace, 7:30-7:45 m/ms. I do my best to keep up with her and the conversation, enjoying the challenge.
Martha is happy to settle in around an 8:30 pace, keeping up our chatty ways and exploring some new routes.
Kate (from DC) pops into my head every time I think about stopping a little bit early, or walking up a hill, because I’m tired. Nope, push it, keep going. She’d make me.
RB Power, not to be messed with!
On the Yoga front, are you doing the 25-day Challenge? So far, I’m 8-for-8! This week has consisted of two classes, so far, one more to go. In the meantime, I keep my flexibility and yogi-toes in check at home with forward folds & handstand practice. We’ll see what tonight’s personal practice has in store for me; I’m officially checking off my hip flexors and glutes as Sore, thanks to above-mentioned classes.
If you haven’t heard of or checked it out already, I bring you The Me Movement. Started by my good friend and colleague, DC-based Dietitian Rebecca Scritchfield, this has taken flight! I think it’s fantastic, have been more than happy to participate in the Twitter Chats, and will soon have my own Story/Guest Post up on Monday.
It gives us something to think about during this crazy holiday season. Balance is one of the most important aspects of my daily life; remember to do something for yourself every day. What have you done for You lately?
