Two-a-days

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking through Glacier National Park is easier if you are active before you arrive.

Two-a-days.

What?

In practice, some people do two workouts, or two rehearsals, of two simulations a day. 

Some do this to outdistance their competition. Some do it out of necessity. And some do it because they’re simply playing the hand they are dealt.

At 5:15am i’m out the door for a run with my wife. This is too early for our son, a high school senior.

He and i are out the door at 6:15am.

During Summer, we will creatively solve for a single run together.

i have to laugh

family at Disney Springs
January 2, 2019 – yesterday. Mary Poppins Returns was good.

i have to laugh at how little distance we are coving after five months of running Monday through Friday every week.

Nearing 3/4 of a mile in non-stop running, with a cooldown walk that puts the total daily distance at one mile.

Seriously, after five months we aren’t quite to the equivalent of three laps around a high school track. 

Why the laughing?

Because no one i know would show up at a track on the first day and run less than four laps.

Our goal is to create lifetime habits. Habits are formed slowly and steadily. How many people do you know who have been intentionally moving for a lifetime?

All of a sudden, our distance seems irrelevant to the slow, steady, and consistent progress we’ve made since August 6, 2019.

One Question A Day?

Who is it in your family?

discomfort
Truth. Run to it. Embrace it. Love it.

When i try to recall a member of my family who spent their life staying active, eating well, making sleep a priority, no one comes to mind.

Not on my wife’s side either.

This makes me feel weird.

Who is it in your family? Is it more than one person?

Ps. In a perfect world, your name, for starters, is on your list.

If you hate running, this is probably why

family
Dinner last night was well-balanced.

 

family buffet
Qdoba catering did an exceptional job.

 

birthday cake
Simple and small cake.

 

After almost two years intentional rest from running (1st break since 1999) we (Family) began running one mailbox a day last Monday. Tomorrow,  it’s two mailboxes a day – Monday through Friday.

Mailboxes are 100 meters apart in our neighborhood.

It will take one month to run the equivalent on one lap around a high school track.

Have always believed the reason most people say they don’t like running is because they do too much too soon, and they quit before they even get started.

Our pace is slower than walking by the way.

Finally, everyone knows that running (or walking, or swimming, biking, etc) improves so many things, right?

Happy present moment.

If not now, when?
If not ever, why?
