HomeRunningTHE FIRE IS BACK + Madness!


(shorts, tank)

I’m enthusiastic about coaching once more. Sure, it might appear to be I abruptly modified how I used to be feeling out of nowhere, and that’s as a result of I did. This sudden change in emotions is due to my PT appointment yesterday. I really feel that fireside once more!

On the Boston Marathon, I met this PT (Scott McKeel in Lehi). He’s mates with my coach, and we ended up operating the primary few miles collectively of the marathon (he then went on to complete in 2:46). He’s the PT for the professional operating workforce in Utah, and I may have sat and listened to all the pieces he needed to say for 20 hours straight.

We did some workout routines to see how my physique fires and it confirmed why my hamstrings are at all times the primary to go when coaching.. my physique fired on this order–> hamstring, again, after which my glutes barely flickered final. Normally, the glutes ought to hearth first. So the objective of PT for me will likely be first to get my glutes to fireside after which strengthen all the pieces. He additionally did some dry needling and Graston on my hamstring to assist them to really feel higher now, however we’re going to work on the large image of all the pieces over the following few months. I additionally must work on my hip stability on either side.

He instructed me the quote, “The definition of madness is doing the identical factor time and again and anticipating totally different outcomes,” and it hit me. Why go into coaching once more doing the identical factor (not getting this hamstring stuff discovered) and dealing myself into the bottom as an alternative of discovering and fixing the issues and going from there? We additionally talked rather a lot about load vs. capability and the way vital it’s to recollect the remainder of life together with the load of coaching too… One thing will give if I’m making an attempt to load an excessive amount of too quickly with out giving my physique time to adapt to the load of life and coaching slowly. He despatched me this video which explains it properly:

I’ll return once more subsequent week! I’ve per week of isometric workout routines, after which I’ll begin eccentric workout routines for 4 weeks. 

I’m excited to see what occurs with my operating this subsequent 12 months as I work on these items!

I used to be again in time for everybody to get to highschool (Beck needs to go so badly with them) after which jumped on the bike for a 30-minute class (I LOVE OLIVIA) and a little bit of higher physique power. My PT stated I used to be good to go biking this week after which begin operating once more on Monday.

Sunny days are right here for good (I imply, we did have snow flurries on Tuesday, so I suppose I can’t get my hopes up an excessive amount of.

We took a motorcycle experience to a little bit neighborhood library.

I spotted yesterday that Knox and I nearly have the identical dimension toes!
