Ignorance is bliss. The more I read, the more podcasts I listen to the more videos I watch the more I see that I won’t make my goals on, “Just Running.” I have been pretty disciplined with my training the last 2 months. I started over. I had a hip flexor problem that got out of control and killed my running for months. Walking was even an issue. So I had to rethink everything. Nutrition was changed. I started running little by little. Introduced some yoga and some strength training. It gets adjusted as I learn but I am light years ahead of last year at this time. I am not a coach. I am not qualified to train a runner. So I made a huge leap of faith. I crossed over. As into CrossFit.
Shout out! I started at CrossFit Hereafter. Jake Stabley is the owner of the gym and is brave enough to take on an ultra runner as a project. I thought I was in some type of shape. Boy was I wrong. After a few classes I feel like my muscles are dying a death of a thousand paper cuts. I have never been so eager to torture myself. When I leave the class I feel I have worked every part of my existence. Very similar to how I feel after a long trail run. Blood, sweat & tears but without the blood and extra sweat.
They say that it isn’t the destination it is all about the journey. I have been taking my GoPro with me everyday. I am going to piece together some videos and show everybody some of that journey. I am going to put it on my Rosser Runs YouTube channel. Please follow along and keep me motivated.
Be Awesome. Inspire People.
