Belated Post- workout and inspiration from Monday, 8/29/2011


One Full week without Power Fitness PDX and I know you are ALL rocking and rolling with working out on your own!  Right now I type from the Oregon Coast with quads that are fried and a mind that is inspired.  Hood to Coast was incredible this year- in part because of all the talented participants.  Our Team did incredible, and my own splits were great and I know I gave it my all.  AS in when I ask you to put it all out there...I put it ALL out there which really was hard by the third hilly run in 24 hours.  Yet I told myself I would not let anyone pass me, to only pass people and...I did but to one. The one person was a young military veteran who was wounded in the war, and on a team powering through with their wheelchair bikes.  We played cat and mouse back and forth on the hill and then on the down hill he had the wheels, literally, and the best smile as he passed me. For him, I was honored to be Road Kill (Hood to Coast term for anyone you pass when racing).  He inspired me after I finished to never ever EVER even contemplate giving up on anything I deem impossible, as everything is possible.  He stood for challenge, courage, compassion, laughter in life, and camaraderie. Thus, I ask you....

What do you feel you stand for in health?
What is your biggest fear in fitness, and what is holding you back?
What goal are you eager to accomplish in August?

For tomorrow and Tuesday's Fun workout...
100 Club of:
Speed Skaters
200 yd. sprints
False Starts
Runner Lunges
Plyo Push Ups

And 10 Planks for 1 minute.
Split the 100 reps to 4x25 reps or 5x20 reps

Wish you a fantastic morning tomorrow! Work and play hard remembering to Challenge the Power of YOU!!
