Some standard advice that is often given to make it through the open water swim portion of a triathlon is: Just swim to the next buoy. Good stuff, right?
After not running as much outside over the winter and coming back to it with more frequency a few weeks ago, I quickly discovered that running up the hills in my neighborhood wasn't as easy as the last time my feet had met the concrete.
About four weeks ago, I really wanted to push myself to run the first incline of my regular route. For whatever reason, I remembered this advice about the swim and decided that it could just as easily apply to a run.
So, I pushed myself to "just run to the next crack." Before I knew it I was at the top of the hill and I hadn't stopped to walk.
One of the most fascinating aspects of life is learning something in one area and being able to apply it to others. Just thought I'd share a little of my fascination.
Have an absolutely blessed day, and thanks for stopping by!
