Don’t Try to Defeat Mother Nature…. Won’t Work

It’s been a long time since I have up-dated. Lots of mixed emotions, questioning, and searching for answers. I have decided to take the 2009 season off of any serious racing and/or training in order to get 100% healthy and ready to run some serious PR’s in 2010. Some nagging aches and pains have become some issues that need to be taken care of and the most important and smartest decision is to take some time off and get ready for the future goals. I am still staying in shape and training but just mixing some things up and trying to learn and become a more well-rounded athlete focussing on strength, mechanics, and dealing with muscle imbalances.

However some super fun things are going on and upcoming. The first Boot Camp session is coming to an end and another is starting. The next session will run from July 6-July 31 and will meet Mon, Wed, Fri … We ALL had a blast during the first Ultimate Stamina Boot Camp and I know many more fun times are in the future.

Ultimate Stamina will also be holding a 2-day Distance Running Camp on Aug 1 and 2… We will be covering everything running including warm-up, stretching, strength, different types of workouts, injury prevention, staying healthy, motivation, and will have some awesome guest speakers. The 2-day camp is $95 with discounts to teams of 4 or more at $75/participant.
