I know, I know, there are blogs with much more followers, but.. For me, 900 are.. A LOT.
I’m flattered and touched at the same time.
So, thank you, thank you very much.
Check out our latest post on running and squatting with @natehelming: “If you’re body’s a vehicle, better learn how to drive it.” At least that’s what @CarlPaoli tells me. This could not be more relevant than when it comes to foot position in running and squatting. How and where do these two activities connect? Well as the running gets fast and long, the squatting must get deep and heavy. Speed in running equals load in squatting.
But ever try squatting heavy or running fast with your feet turned way out? It can be done but it’s neither “pretty” nor “speedy.”
But fear not: fixing our foot position in the squat helps us fix our foot position on the run. Start squatting deep and heavy with your toes more forward and you will soon be running with your feet pointing in the direction you want to go. So go practice. With some driving lessons pretty soon you’ll be to squat heavy and run fast. Or in other words: have your cake and eat it too.” #freestyleconnection #gwod #helmingathletics #mobilitywod #BASL #sanfranciscocrossfit #crossfit #running #triathlon
I am not on this earth to be beautiful.
I was not born to be slim or sexy or svelte.
I am here to be strong.
To be meaningful.
To be a friend, a fighter, to do good in this world.
I am here to be well-rounded, well-grounded, and well-meaning.
I am here to lift others up, to care, to wipe away their tears.
I am not an inspiration. I am aspiration and respiration.
I am stardust, not a star.
I am heart and hands.
I just am.
