Not Yet


I can’t write about running.
And I can’t write about nutrition.
Not today anyway.  Not yet.  
In fact, I am late with my article.  But it seems every time I have sat down at my proverbial typewriter to write my next running or nutrition article, my heart aches.  As much as I want to move on, write a thoughtful musing about running, it just feels wrong.   
So instead, I thought I would share the advise I gave my children this morning as I sent them off to school.  I may catch some flack for this, but I may also help someone.  So, the potential to help (to me) outweighed any flack I might receive… so I will share.

Post Run Stretch?????


So I guess everyone knows that the right way to start and end a run is with a good warm up and stretch… I guess that was everyone except me.
Until recently, my warm up and cool down happened on my front steps.
Warm up: walk down the steps
Cool down: do one large lunge (take three step at a time) with each leg on the way back in. Combine, if the weather is good, with taking off my sneakers.  Pour a cup of tea.
