I did it...I survived week one.  It’s not saying much considering I covered 95 miles in the week when I’m looking at 140 in a day but...week one is in the green with a lot of firsts: first legit training, first swim workout, first double session, first hill repeat set, first 95 mile week! And a return to not getting locked into my bike...😬

Happy Monday - try some firsts! Do you have any?

You’re at the gym for a 90 minute ride but you circle the parking lot 3X for the front parking spot.  In a FIT car nonetheless. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈAdditional marketing? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Be honest.  πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

I always find this perplexing about my personality.  Maybe it’s just me? I ran 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days and yet I consistently loop parking lots for the best (i.e. closest) spot.  

2021 goals: take the stairs, park the farthest, walk to school (weather pending).

Should runners stretch before a run

Stretching. We know we should do it and we do often intend to do it. But in reality, very few of us are strict enough about including it in our running routine.
