I'm a running coach!

Wednesday, June 5, 2019

Happy National Running Day! I'm celebrating all day by resting. Resting is an important part of running. I want to run for a long time so resting and recovering need to be part of the plan for me.

I am happy to announce that I am getting to the end of my sabbatical. If you follow me on Instagram, you are probably wondering what in the world I do when I am NOT on exercise sabbatical. I love training, running for the joy of it. I am currently getting in shape to run a marathon in January, the Chevron Houston Marathon.

My goal between now and the beginning of the season is to be faithful with cross training and take it easy during my weekend runs. I am also swimming as cross training.

By the time we start marathon training in July, my body will be in the best shape to conquer 26.2 miles.

Another happy news in my world is that I was invited to be one of the Head Coaches for my running group. USA has helped me reach the finish lines of 5 marathons, 5 half marathons and many other distances in between. Other than the 30 years of experience they put into their training plan, I made lifelong friends. If you are a local friend, I hope you join us to train for the distance of your choice and change your life!

USA Fit is a group for walkers and runners. We cover every pace imaginable and every distance you desire to conquer. USA Fit is in many locations in the US so find your local chapter!

Today my own early morning group is celebrating 1 year. It started as a 6-week experiment and one year later, I'm glad we kept it going. Beat the Sun is a virtual group as well. Join us if you want to be motivated to reach your fitness goals!

It is not too late to decide what your exercise goals for the year need to be. Today is a great day to start. Start small. If you have a big goal (marathon, half marathon) find a group that can support you and empower you.
