I absolutely adore Kara Goucher!!! She is so genuine as a person and down to earth! Always positive and always has encouraging words! I found this awesome write up yesterday on her tips to start and keep running that was on runners world.com http://www.runnersworld.com/running-tips/running-101-class-session?adbid=10152754109846987&adbpl=fb&adbpr=9815486986&cid=socMOT_20150430_44896826&short_code=2whov
Ok, let's talk Burpees!! Love them! Hate them!!!! My ears cringe at just hearing or saying the word Burpee!!!! But, I must admit, I tend to avoid them because I had no idea how in the world to properly perform!! I mean, I have seen so many variations that I have no idea what I am suppose to be doing! Well, that was until now!!!! I found this link ar belle.runnersworl.com that not only shows you how to perform a burped, but breaks it down to the exact body position to prevent strain on the lower back!!!!! Check it out here: http://zelle.runnersworld.com/run-matters/trainer-tip-how-to-properly-perform-a-burpee?adbid=10152753435501987&adbpl=fb&adbpr=9815486986&cid=social44895266&short_code=2wfh3
So, today was my LONG day to work (it is now (9:25pm).... yes, when it is your day to work the "walk in clinic", you work until 7pm! This is also my weekend to work walk in! So, for weekend plans, I will be working. The staff rotates weekends to work and it works out to every 5th weekend, so it isn't too bad! Plus, usually it is quite busy which makes for fast work days!!! Added plus!!! :) It is a good service for the community in order to prevent patients from having to hang out for hours at an ER. Plus, it helps if you have a good crew to work with... BUT, as crazy as it sounds, I am going to try to run a local 5K tomorrow morning prior to going to work.... we will see if I make it! Heck, if I can run at lunch, I should be able to do this, right?!? We will see.... will keep you posted!!! For local folks, the 5K information can be found at the following link.... not too late to show up and sign up!!! https://runsignup.com/Race/GA/Valdosta/RacingwithRotary5Kand1mile
