Time flies. I just can not believe we have finished another year - faster as we get older - for sure.
The Sarnia Road Runners held their New Years Day run with about 50 people attending. Feet on Fire was well represented. It was an enjoyable run, especially at 7KM. For anyone wanting to see results - please follow this link = http://sarniaroadrunners.com/results.htm not posted yet however I suspect they will be up in the next day or two.
Some of friends at Chi Running and Chi Walking have issued a challenge. I am sure you have heard me say that walking is good for you and this is the only thing that will combat the sitting and inactivity in our lives. I always tell people that they should work up to an hour a day walking. this is besides any running that you do. Please have a look at this link and buy in - it will improve your health
WELL... "IF" you have not been serious bout your training program or maybe you do not have a training program - NOW is the time to start - get your butt in gear and follow the program you have OR contact us so that we can get you started. Please do not leave it until the last moment and then CRAM and get injured - that is NOT the way to approach training.
We have programs for Around the Bay, Misissauga Marathon, Chili Half, Hypo Half and can do up any other program that you want. "IF" it is a 10K or shorter - for now follow the base program until about 8 - 12 weeks before your event - let us know.
FoF will also have a C25K program starting in March with Jackie leading it - so spread the work please.
#1 - Running is fun so enjoy it
#2 - You do not have to go fast to improve but you do have to run regularly - hit and miss is OK but not for improvement!
#3 - STRENGTH is important for runners - get on some kind of strength program - especially as you age
#4 - WALKING is good for your health and will help you develop your running body as well!
#5 - POSTURE is all important when you run = engage your core - be upright and tall - run lightly - lean forward to go faster (from the ankles) and take short quick strides - do NOT overstride.
Enjoy your week
