Lisa’s Journey, Week 14’s focus has been the Four F’s…

#1 – FORTUNATE: Earlier in the week Ray kindly gave up his time to travel down and hold a seminar on ‘Training for a Triathlon’. Thank you so much Ray! I know you’re super busy, but it was very informative and the feedback has been really positive! The 7 Keys to Success were again helpful and I know I had some ahh-haaa moments, some of which need to be worked on!!!

Lisa’s Journey, Week 13: Don’t be in a rush to get to the destination. Just enjoy the journey.

The best part now is that I’m not daunted by the thought of going for a 40min run like I used to be, but in my head I’m much better than I actually am. Or maybe I think it is going to be easier than it is.  That’s me really badly trying to explain that prior to any run I’m eager, then I go out and I’m like ugh, this is harder than I imagined it was going to be. Then as soon as I’m finished I’m like yeeyah, bring on the next run.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 12: Heads, shoulders, KNEES and toes…

I’m going to put myself out on a limb and say… most,  if not all people who run, will probably experience knee pain (of some description)…  It’s kinda unavoidable, given the knee joint is the largest in the body, doing a heck of a lot of work! I’ve been reading more about the ‘knee’, and was quite shocked at some of the facts. The scariest one for me personally, was that the load distributed over the kneecaps can be up to five times your body weight, especially while climbing up and down stairs… Continue reading “Lisa’s Journey, Week 12: Heads, shoulders, KNEES and toes…”

Lisa’s Journey, Week 11: Challenge Accepted!

Argh… Ok, so who’s sped up time?  It seems I just finish a blog and vow to have the next in on time and then it’s already Friday! Now it’s Saturday and I’m already late, but as my favourite saying goes, ‘if it wasn’t for the last minute, I’d get nothing done’!! So here’s how this week has played out.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 10: Trust And To Believe In One’s Self…

You have to trust in the process and have the confidence that you can and will achieve your goals! This was too big of a heading, but this is what I have come to learn over that last couple of months. The great thing I’ve found with having a running coach is being able to put your trust in their hands, and know that their knowledge will help get you to where you need to be, and you don’t have to even think about it.  You  just have to stick to the plan!

Lisa’s Journey Week 7: Footloose… I’ve sure kicked off those shoes!!

I’ve stared at this screen for sometime now, wondering what to write from the past week. I’ve really struggled, so I’m going to bore you with a few things that have happened over the last few days. Well today I missed my first run!  It feels like a big deal to me and I feel somewhat like a failure, as it taints my clean record. I don’t enjoy running as such, yet, or maybe I do? I can’t quite decide. I am always very pleased when I’m done, but I do not like missing a run, because I know that if I miss one, it’s all to easy to miss the next and so on. It wasn’t because I actually couldn’t be bothered either, but because of heavy rain. I toyed with the idea of still going out, but the rain didn’t ease or it seemed very illogical.
