Four days off, I am hoping to get my house clean, it probably won't happen but I can hope...right!?
I am trying to use the same tactic I do when running...
- visualize the finish
- picture myself sweating, smiling, and strong
- tell myself, I love this, I don't feel tired at all
- visualize how I will enjoying relaxing while feeling accomplished
- picture myself running uphill and nailing it
- visualize my feet hitting the ground in good form
- focus on the strength it takes to keep moving
- celebrate the movement
- dig deep, feel the breeze, and smile
- visualize that happy finish
Okay, maybe I am feeling a bit overwhelmed thinking about cleaning lol
I hope everyone has a few moments to take a breath, enjoy someone and something you love, and take a nap! Your muscles will love for it ❤
To all of you running a Turkey Trot - have a great time!
Thanks for stopping by,
and here is a marathon story for ya...seriously, I am just not sure what to think about this one...
Richmond marathon runner doesn't let fall, concussion stop him from running
RICHMOND, Va. -- One runner from New Jersey didn’t let his fall at the Richmond marathon break his spirit.
Mark Washburne, 59, was about 10 yards from crossing the finish line Saturday until he fell, breaking his nose and getting a concussion.
After a few minutes he managed to get up and completed the race in three hours, 40 minutes and 40 seconds.
He was taken to the hospital for an overnight stay.
But staying off his feet would have stopped his 9,450 day running streak, a streak that equates to just over 25 years.
Washburne said the doctors were insistent, no running, but he was too determined.
So an hour after his release, Washburne strapped on his shoes and did a three-mile run across the city.
Washburne said he's been running three miles a day since the marathon. He is planning to run his 12th consecutive Boston marathon in 2016.
Washburne’s finishing time during Saturday’s event qualified him for the 2017 marathon.
