Every Tuesday and Thursday morning throughout Marathon Season, Robin will be leading midweek training sessions. These sessions have a multitude of benefits, benefits that are physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Here are some of them:
- Your muscles and joints will thank you. Even if your cardiovascular system is strong, your joints and muscles need time to adapt. Let’s give them plenty of opportunity to do so. If you get your body accustomed to running/walking several times each week, your muscles and joints will be fully prepared for the longer distances that will come later in the season. Midweek training is an opportunity to honor yourself by honoring your body.
- You’ll feel good about yourself afterward. It may be hard to drag yourself out of bed, but think how good you’ll feel once you get out there, and how you’ll feel throughout the rest of the day as you congratulate yourself for getting out there and doing it. You will have made the decision to get up and show up, and that will be a reason to reflect on your day with pride.
- You will enjoy the camaraderie of the team. We’re all in this together. We will celebrate our successes, and hold each other accountable. Be part of something bigger than yourself.
- Robin will inspire you. Robin supported the team during the 2015-16 season and he did an awesome job. He was consistently there and consistently positive. He knows that training is tough. He knows how to keep you motivated and he brings a sense of enthusiasm that will put a smile on your face no matter what.
If you are already doing the midweek runs, awesome! Keep it up. If you aren’t doing them yet, I encourage you to check it out. The benefits listed above are but a few of the many. See how many more you can experience.
