This very well might be the last time I write anything referring to my previous personal trainer. It has been more than 3 months since I had my last workout with him, and I have had a solid 2 months of working with a new running coach and new personal trainer. Sure there are things I miss about my workouts, but what I don’t miss is the threat of injury and nagging soreness that for me seemed to be “normal.”
According to the 2014 US Census Report,
“Mobility is Most Common Disability Among Older Americans, Census Bureau Reports” December, 2014
I am getting ready to run my 10K goal race tomorrow morning, and in spite of my decreased mileage, and decreased weight load at the gym, I am noticing small changes that are already having an impact on my mobility and performance. It is a work in progress.
No matter what happens tomorrow during my 6.2 miles, that is a short term goal in life. The longer term goal is to live strong and move pain free no matter what my future brings.
Of course I am trying to live in the present and enjoy what I am able to do NOW. The key to any sport is to remain in the present and stay focused on the task at hand, and remain within yourself.
I am gaining a new appreciation for small details that make a big difference.
