Updating your blog is harder when you do it less often. It's like where do I start??
How about with what I just did?? I just updated my homepage to MobilityWOD.com so every time I open my browser that's the site I'll see from Kelly Starrett. He just recently made that site subscription based for new content. I'm glad I found him before and realized how much awesome info he has to teach b/c normally I'm not a fan of subscription based websites. But this one is worth the $8/month for sure. Every day there's new awesome content and the amount I have learned in the last few weeks from this guy is unreal. I have never heard anyone explain how our bodies should be functioning like this guy does and I find myself glued to the videos he makes... watching them over and over until I'm sure I understand. I've finished reading his book though I continue to go back and reference it often. This is like continuing education at it's absolute best.
Can you tell I'm a fan?
My obsession with that website stems from the fact that I am fixing my hip/hamstring/glute situation by using his mobilization and stabilization techniques. It's not all better quite yet but it's getting there and I'm running a little here and there. It's super frustrating of course because I'm not able to train the way I'd like to be able to train in order to see the fitness gains I'd like to see. Doing things half-ass is not my style but it's all I've got right now so I'm trying to be patient and work within my current limiters. Some days I do a better job than others. Yesterday my PWN after my run said something like, "I wish I could say I'm being all mature about how slow this was but I am not. Feeling super frustrated." So there you go.
Let's talk about something more cheery than how slowly I move when I am "running".
How about how cool my cats are? My neighbor took this picture over the weekend. That's Harriet running down our roof. One day I hope to be as agile as she is. She's got great downhill skillz.
Hence, it looked a little different in the water Sunday morning. The ocean is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.
Wet soggy days are not my favorite, especially in mid-May. But the waterfalls are pretty. I'd say this is what it looked like on my run, but while I was running those mountains weren't actually visible b/c of the low and thick cloud layer. It poured on me the whole time, which I actually sort of liked. Though I'm hoping the sun comes out again tomorrow. I am solar powered.
