Thoughts from the Road: Running in 500 Words or Less. Vol. 12

Thoughts from the road.

Going Forward in Reverse…

I like running backwards!!

Funny things happen when we just keep moving! Be it forward or backward, if we just keep going we always end up further along the road. How we move…That’s just a matter of circumstance. Sometimes we move quickly forward, other times we trudge onward barely picking ourselves up and yet at other moments we may find ourselves moving forward in reverse.

All that really matters is Activity. Just Keep Moving. ForwardsBackwardsEasy or Difficult. Just keep moving!

Sure, we modify and adjust…Life throws us curve balls, Family pulls us with obligation, Injuries Happen…Still, we must find a way to Just Keep Moving. There is Progress even when things appear backwards!!

The Value is in motion. As a Run Coach I understand the importance of Backwards Training. In life, I’ve come to learn that there is Value in Time and Motion. Even when don’t appear right…Even when everything isn’t going “the right way,” there is still Progress Being Made! AND, like in run training, often times there is very real value in those moments of “going backwards!”

May you always have the Courage to Run Backwards! May you have the Wisdom to Modify and the Strength to Make Time. It takes only a moment…May you see the Value in Movement, even if things aren’t perfect…there can be progress going Forward in Reverse.

Run Backwards. It Helps…
