Share Four Somethings is a monthly link-up that Heather Gerwing started back in 2018. The concept is to share the same four topics every month as a way to look back and recap your month. The link-up opens on the 4th Saturday of every month and stays open for one week.
The topics for 2022 are: Something Loved. Something Gleaned, Something Braved or Saved and Something Achieved.
Feel free to join her. I’m adapting it and changing the post date obviously.
Racing, of course. And Trails and Boating. But most importantly, time with friends and family.
It actually came from a birthday card:
Substitute Running/Racing for “Life.”
You can get all the advice in the world, follow recommended training plans, wear the perfect clothes, eat healthy foods, do the right workouts and the results rarely make us happy.
So we obsess…
Should I run longer training runs? Should I do more drills? Could I have run faster? Is my form correct? Should I increase my cadence? Longer or shorter stride? Do I shuffle? Yada yada.
So why not try as the card says:
Worry less, laugh more, just wing it and be happy!!
For the first time since March 2020, I taught a live class (in Queens, NY). I’ve been teaching remotely which is a lot different besides being impersonal, you read your content (a script).
Of course, an in-person class is harder since you have to have the content memorized but it is more rewarding seeing those persons whom you are training in front of you. They are engaged and have to pay attention (and hopefully learning a lot.)
The downside is the threat of COVID and being indoors (and not able to wear a mask all day) all day as well as riding the subway to and from.
4. Something Achieved
I am more than halfway toward my 1000 mile annual running goal. It’s only a goal but it proves that I had been running consistently all year and not injured.
So far, so good.
And I’ve run 20 races so far this year!! And you know how I love to race!
A few of my local favorites:
and because it’s Friday, I’m adding one more:
5. Something Read or Watched
Not much on the TV front – most shows are on hiatus and I am not a big TV watcher (esp. in the summer).
I did see this movie (in the theatre). I enjoyed it so much (and went with friends). At some point, I’d like to see Top Gun (with the hubby).
On the reading front, I try to read everyday… so yes, I read a lot of books. Here are a few:
Happy Running! Anything to share on the topics above or one of your own?
