Just Running?

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.

  1. Hello,
    Pleasure to meet you and thank you for visiting my blog page and having a follow. I appreciate the support! this is awesome that another fitness person has found my blog! I am not much of a long distance runner but “back in my day” I used to run it, now only sprints and interval training more so than anything else. I see you have came into contact with another blogger whom I have had the chance to connect with “thehangryrunner”; she is awesome! I look forward to reading more post from you!
