Começamos o dia subindo a trilha para o View Point.
Foram 5km de morro acima... mas valeu cada pingo de suor 💙
Vista sensacional !!!
No final, percebemos que fizemos o caminho mais longo. Tinha um que era só 1km de escada acima... 😂
Mas faz parteee... hahaha
Pelo menos queimamos umas calorias a mais 😅👊🏼
BOM DIAAAAAA!!!! 🏃🏼♀️💙
🙂 Compañerismo 🙂
No dejar tirado a un compañero nunca. Si antes de un Maratón... tu compañero se mea y tu no tienes ganas... se mea y punto💪🏻 solo para que él no se sienta solo 🏃🏼♂️🏃🏼♂️ 😂
Siempre que pueda te apoyaré @andres_alonagui 🔥
Last week’s training took a toll on me both physically and mentally. I was feeling stressed just thinking about the workouts I had to do this week. I was honest with my coach and asked her to scale back my training. She reminded me that running is my hobby and it should help me relieve stress instead of adding stress to my life. 😌 She adjusted my training this week and I feel so much better. It’s just what I needed leading up to the Pasadena #halfmarathon on Sunday. I’m going into this race with no pressure and all I want is a solid training run in preparation for Boston. The clock ⏰ is ticking and April 15th will be here in no time. 💙💛 📸:1/12

Take a novel exercise like a wall squat and use it to teach awareness of the body. Get a sense of the quads, hams, glutes, abs, adductors, calves, and everything else as a way to monitor efficiency of a movement. Feel the movement!

First of all, what does the word syndrome even mean? It’s a pretty scary sounding term in general, but all that it means is a cluster of symptoms that commonly occur together. So next time you hear syndrome, don’t run for the hills!
So what about IT band syndrome? What exactly does that mean? Let’s start by taking a look at the IT band in general. The illiotibial band is a thick, strong band of fascia running down the lateral leg. It’s tensile strength has been likened to soft steel; that’s pretty strong! It begins with a blend of tissue from the Glute max and the tensor fascia latae, and ends at the lateral tibial plateau. Check out the cover picture for a good visual of the blend from the hip muscles.
Ok, so now you know the IT band. What about the syndrome? ITB syndrome is a common knee injury the usually presents as pain/tenderness on the outside of the knee. It’s typically a non traumatic overuse injury seen with repetitive knee flexion and extension movements (looking and you 🏃🏻♂️&🚴🏾♀️). It’s a common belief the pain is caused by a ‘tight’ IT band, but the evidence is mixed on the actual cause of the pain: some say it’s from the ITB rubbing over a part of the femur and getting irritated, others say the pain is actually a result of compression on a fat pad that lies underneath the ITB. Either cause, ITB syndrome can be annoying and uncomfortable!
So now what can we do about it? Stop bending and straightening the knee all together? Give up running? Stretch for years? Stay tuned for part 3!
Tag someone you know with outside of the knee pain who could use this info!
This next progression of the deadbug is meant to add movement to the idea of a ‘braced’ trunk. Concentrate on keeping that stiffness that we discussed in the previous post by flattening the low back into the floor and keeping it glued there once the movement starts. As you heel tap, keeping those ‘short ribs’ will force you to resist excess extension in the low back as well as an anterior tilt of the pelvis (As a side note, we’re not resisting these ranges of motion because they’re inherently bad or dangerous, we’re doing so purely as a way to train the muscles to resist movement as they’re designed to). Many people will lose this position and it’s associated abdominal pressure when brining the leg back to the start, so keep that back glued down through the whole movement and get some good bang for your buck!

I fully expected it to be a slower one.
But then I began grinding and felt good.
3x1 mile at 6:20 pace.
So today’s lesson is still judge by effort and not pace but also wait until your done with the workout to write a caption.” | Follow her for more.
