Inspire: Running motivational fuel + fire

feb2012_N0007 We just started a new series over at dailymile called Fuel + Fire. Last year, nearly 400 community dailymission submissions answered: What's your favorite motivational quote?

See the results in Mind Over Matter and Just Do It. Another post, Valentines: Don’t go breaking *your* heart, is an update on one I did here last year.

FYI: Expect more writing from me over at dailymile this year. While my 2011 team ambassadorship is soon over, happily, I'll continue as a weekly contributor. Look for my posts on Wednesdays.

Train: Brain training for runners-week 10

Stone Bridge TrailRunning on and photographing (on separate outings) Stone Bridge Trail and its environs was the big highlight of my training this week.

Lost a little of my oomph toward the end of the week, and pushed this week's LSD run (slated for Sunday) back by a day. Other slacking includes not getting my two yoga sessions in, along w/my Brain Training for Runners resistance sets. Weekly mileage is building to the highest level I've ever seen, and I'm starting to feel it. Tired a little more -- even took a nap after one my runs this week...very unusual. High humidity isn't giving anyone a boost in stride, either.

Need to get back on the ball as far as stretching and weights workouts go, but I'm also having a ball and that counts for something, too.

Journey: Appreciating great places to run

Water and roots

My latest post in dailymile's Destination: Run series is up.

A lot of fun to work on, dailymission redux: destinations to run to answers last month's dailymission question, "What elements make your city, region of the country or world the best place for working out?"
