1. Become a runner again. Every week, I watch the above video for inspiration and to keep in mind, the possibilities. Low mileage in the off-season means more recovery time for speed work. Heeeeellooo 10K's. Dynamic stretching.
2. Increase muscle mass and functional strength. My school weight room is like having a personal gym, thus, I avoid the embarrassment of fighting the women for the 15-lb dumbbells. I will also be taking my first TRX class in a couple of weeks-it helps that the TRX training center is right here in San Francisco.
3. Increase flexibility. Getting old sucks. I constantly feel tight, especially my glutes and hamstring. Because of the constant tightness, my stride feels restrictive, and about two inches long. I need to start looking for a yoga class that actually does yoga (recall this story).
Oh yea, and make the Sunday morning farmer's market a priority over training.
I'm basically interested in all things funny, health and triathlon related, and sustainable living. This blog used to accompany a website I built to raise awareness about cancer as well as raise money for different causes.
