Carrot cake porridge
I've want to add some more veggies to my breakfasts and this morning came up with the idea of carrot cake porridge.
I added 1/4 cup of grated carrots, 1/4 cup of sultanas and a teaspoon of cinnamon to my usual porridge recipe. The result was quite tasty but I think next time I'll add more carrots and cinnamon and maybe some walnuts instead of flax seeds.
Have you come up with any unusual breakfast recipes lately?

This was a text I received this morning. I could not be more proud of the work this athlete has put in. I’m confident she will crush the goals she set for herself for her upcoming 1/2 marathon. When the programming is systematic and the work is done with intention, results happen. #proudcoach#running#runningcoach#health#wellness#fitness

Hoje quando acordei estava chovendo, mas não bateu preguiça. Só que eu não fui.
Não estar aquele calor que mais parece que estamos correndo na superfície solar me permitiria fazer o treino mais tarde e, mais que isso, respirar um pouco! Acordando sempre na madrugada, voltando pra casa após às 22 com aulas, curso, estudos, funções familiares, isso não tem sido muito comum além de estar ficando pouco (pra não dizer quase nada) com a @jadedias.
Precisávamos desse tempo. Merecíamos esse tempo. E já que estava acordado, fiz o café!
E quando ela saiu pra trabalhar, mais umas funções com o @tonytridog e pronto. Botei o tênis e fui do jeito que eu queria!
Não levei praticamente nada. Telefone, gopro e etc. Só mesmo o garmin por vício mas que sequer olhei (e ainda assim bati o tempo cravado na porta de casa e por conhecer bem o percurso vi que marcou a menos...mas tá valendo). Quando saio pra correr assim não deixo os desafios da vida pra trás e algumas vezes até encontro as soluções ali, mas o telefone não vai tocar, a urgência vai esperar eu voltar, e tenho a liberdade de ser só eu comigo mesmo. Só as pernas. Só pulmões. Só cabeça!

Running love ...,
It’s amazing how I have a fancy schmancy watch that tells me the colour of my pants and which way the wind is blowing, yet I still can’t bloody manage to get anywhere on time. One of life’s great mysteries I suppose. 🤷🏼♀️ 15 miles over the SDW today under a babe of a clear blue sky. 2 weeks ago I couldn’t get my car up the road to this part of the trail because the ice and snow was so bad, today I was sweating in a tank and shorts. Mother Nature wyd sis? ⛰❄️🏃🏼♀️☀️⛰

Running pain free is always the goal. Prevent running injuries by adding skill practice to your training. 🔹Running injuries happen on the ground, you want to minimize time on ground and increase time in air, running.
Runner on Left ❌Reaching lifted foot as action, heel strike is like hitting the brakes, slowing down run + increasing impact, up to 3X bodyweight
Runner in the middle ❌Active land with tense ankle, heel lifted, landing ahead of body, slowing down run and increasing impact. ❌Both runners are working against gravity, using active muscle contraction to try to control their landing. “Trying to land on the ball of foot or trying to not reach” means you are thinking about landing and you will reach for the ground, landing ahead of body, delaying recovery to running pose, increasing your chance of injury.
Runner on Right
✅Running, both feet in air. Gravity controls descent of lifted leg, ankle relaxed, foot lands naturally, close to under body, ✅Recovering pose so body can Fall, foot Pulls Up off ground in response to ground contact and fall, and she is back in air, running.

I attended a lecture by @boersg yesterday about making less effort and enjoying more success as a result. I made the same effort today with my running when my knees said, “maybe.” I turned that into a “yes!”

Sometimes throwing out a plan and going with the flow is the best thing. I had 120 min run on the books today which I was able to get in at the Thrill in the Hills 50k/20k. I was introduced to two really great dudes and ended up being their 3rd leg in the 50k relay. I contributed 5 miles and together we snagged 1st place for 3 person relays (of two teams😂)! We were just having fun. I ran 70 minutes to warm up and then hit the 5 miles in 37?38? minutes. Im actually not sure. GPS didn’t work out there in the trails. @dirtyspokes11 puts on elite events! First class for sure... I don’t know that anyone does it better! It was good to get muddy on the trails. I even turned my fave but worn out trainers into trail shoes using @goatheadgear sole spikes!!! I’ve had these things forever and decided to give it a go. HOLY COW!! I am bummed I haven’t used them sooner. It made areas that would have been an impassable slippery slop fest into easily traversed terrain. The mud on the steep areas was still bad and I slid some but the shoes still gripped enough that I didn’t lose too much pace or my footing entirely. I wasn’t racing today, just trying to have fun and help the team. I still have a double ear infection and a sinus infection and my head is POUNDING but I couldn’t miss this race. I loved seeing all the familiar faces and cheering people on. Seeing the start of all the races and not feeling pressure to perform was what I needed, even feeling like garbage. I love this community of runners and everything folks have to give. Seeing people run their first ultra brings me such joy. People cheering each other on and being supportive no matter what. Trail runners are special. Congrats to @ashruns100s on her badass 3rd place finish on a sloppy and fun trail system. It was a good day.
20 miles, 10 on the trails, with deer sightings, mud puddles, and fuzzy silver sunlight. .
There’s such a mystique around the 20 miler. Aerobically, there’s no advantage to runs longer than three hours. But there are other physiological and mental benefits.
I’ve run this distance countless times, but always in service to a marathon. When you’re done you can think, “Well it’s just a 10K after this.” (Which is no small thing, to be honest.) But today, it was sobering to realize that on race day, I’ll still have 10 miles to go... and then another mile on top of that just to be fancy 😱 And in August, after 20 I won’t even be half done.
Can she do it? We will find out the answer to part 1 in 69 days.
10 miles ✅ Just training for...LIFE over here 👋🏼👋🏼 No major races on the calendar until October (changing that ASAP😜) but that doesn’t mean the fitness journey goes out the window! Thumbs up to finishing soggy, cold miles followed by a hot shower and pizza🍕 •
Anyone else feel a greater sense of accomplishment after finishing a run when the weather is crappy?! The hardest part is getting out the door but nothing beats that feeling afterwards...especially when pizza is involved;) Happy Saturday everyone!!🌧 #runviews#pnw#oregon
Curb jumps for muscle elasticity and foot strength. Another skill, strength and self care combo to keep you ready to run. 🔹Start with both feet, body weight on ball of foot, knees bent, ✅hop up and and off curb, lead with hips
🔹Progress to single leg Pulls in run pose, try a few hops before your next run

Using sand to demo the Pull vs kick back in your run. 🔹Goal is to not disturb the sand, minimize time and impact on ground. ❌Kicking back or pushing off causes body to go up and ankle behind hip, loads hamstrings and will increase impact on landing.
✅Pull ankle up under hip, recover running pose, body can fall, foot Pulls Up and you can enjoy your run.
