Had 20mins before teaching AquaFit so I went for a run. While running I noticed something I was doing with my fingers. I was taking note about myself as I was running in preparation for the upcoming ‘C25K’ class my studio will be hosting.
Are you someone that clenches your fists when running? Or just don’t know what to do with your hands?
I heard once to act like you’re holding a potato chip …in your fingers.
Once I did that I always seem to catch myself doing it.
When doing that you aren’t wasting energy by clenching your fist etc. It works for me!!
AND another time I was running short on time again. Had 10minutes before teaching class so I went for a quick run again. Whoa humidity! Got to sweat out some toxins in that little amount of time!! SO while running I thought of another TIP! When feeling like you are *done* and can’t do more BUT want to push yourself a little bit more..put some FOCUS into your arms.
Try this- Think and act as if you’re pulling a rope. Like Hand over hand. Reaching far out and pulling elbows back. YOU’LL notice a change in your pace and ease in your run!
Try it…another one that works for me… 😄
I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
