I ran one day for about 1 1/2 miles last November, and maybe a few times over the summer. I’ve been doing Power Yoga weekly, hoola hooping, hiking and walking — that’s been my cross training. I knew I could walk the 3.1 miles, but I had no idea I had the endurance to run it the entire way! When I crossed the finish line, I was overcome with the thrill of VICTORY — what all can I actually do? What else can I achieve? Could I actually be getting younger than older?My cousin stopped smoking by taking up long distance running. He and his wife have run so many half marathons and triathalons. I no longer want to run distances but the thrill of being with many passionate runners was a real turn on!
I think cross training is doing what you luvv to do, and then applying that to new things. I’m now adding dance to my cross training. Who knows what all I can do with the character developed through many ways of expressing and sweating myself? Here’s the biggest surprise of all: I FINISHED 6TH IN MY AGE CATEGORY!!
