It’s You, It’s You, It’s Always Been In You!

My strength training got put to the test today and it came up trumps!

This morning’s run was a windy one. Much like being in a wind tunnel blasted from all directions with surf spray thrown in for refreshment. 7.10km and I came up 10 seconds faster per km than of late. All those squats, step ups, deadlifts, lunges, planks, burpees, and all their functional, compound, cardio, plyometric counterparts paid off. I beat the wind tunnel! When you’ve got to dig deep it’s there!

Victories big or small need a celebration. Today an extra bunch of flowers. Lilacs and peonies. Two of my favourite flowers and I need a little sunshine. Things around here are getting loco and changing by the hour, so I more than welcome some grounding, even if it is to stop and smell the roses!
