Welcome to Fitness Friday!
Celebrate fitness. Celebrate good health. Celebrate friends. Celebrate your passion.
October was a whirlwind! Enjoying amazing running experiences and progress. Challenging my body and listening when my body is telling me to rest. Starting a new strength training program and new shoes. What else could a runner ask for?!?
Running – With wonderful weather for being outside, the Runner’s World Half and Festival and running 2 of my Twelve In Twenty Twelve half marathons, October was a runner’s dream month! I say that even with taking off a whole week of running to give my body the rest it so clearly needed. There was a time when deciding to take a little time off from running would have not gone well. And this month started my transition to a zero drop (or as close to zero drop as possible) shoe. Conservatively starting with going from a 12 mm to an 8mm (and loving it) I’m thinking I should have been a little less conservative. Better safe than sorry right?
I applied to be a running coach for a local running store. Yikes! Not sure where or how I will find the time but I’m so excited about this opportunity!
