Live from The Track: Arm Position. 6/15/2020

PREPARE YOURSELF

Learn…Practice…Workout

It was all about the Arms at todays Form & Fundamental Track Practice. A great workout as preparation for Wednesdays 400 Meter Repeat Track Workout.

Learning how to use your Arms to drive your legs for acceleration is all about Running Strong & Efficient. Practicing how to Relax your Arm without collapsing your posture is key to Active Recovery. It was a workout all about how our Arm Position and Engagement effects our overall Speed and Sustainability.

#PREPARE YOURSELF.

Running is so much more than physical!  Movement is just the process, muscles are just the strength, THE MIND is really the FORCE behind the movement.  

At Leapfrog we practice running by coaching the Mind/Body Connection and Perceived Effort.  We want you to get to know that little voice that whispers doubt and fear.  We coach mental strategies and build the confidence to push through the tough times.  

Run Form and Efficiency are used to keep us moving forward, they are built by bridging the body and mind to listen to each other and make smart adjustments to keep us moving forward.  When you feel like quitting we ask “WHY?”   Are you out of breath, Are your legs heavy/tired?  Is your mind overwhelmed?  As we ask and understand why we are having difficultly we can then make adjustments and keep moving forward.   Breathing techniques, posture, arm engagement, breaking the run/workout down into smaller units that our minds can handle…THIS is what we practice at Leapfrog.

So when doubts creep in…When we feel weak…When we want to quit…  This is when the coaching at Leapfrog really kicks in!
“Anyone can do it fresh!”  You’ll hear me preach this at practice on a regular basis. It’s when your body/mind are tired and exhausted, that’s when Form, Efficiency, Discipline, Strength and Purpose MATTER.  This is what we practice.  This is what I coach.

RUN WITH PURPOSE
LIVE WITH PURPOSE


PREPARE YOURSELF.


PLAN AHEAD.  BE DISCIPLINED.  SHOW UP.  Leapfrog offers 3 practices each week…Your Results Will Be In Proportion to Your Practice.

I look forward to seeing everyone at a Leapfrog Event this week!  In addition to the paid training listed above we also offer a weekly free Bike Ride:  Tuesday 6:30a.m. Bike Skills Ride followed by coffee.   Details can be found on the website under the events tab:)

“You are stronger than you think you are!”

 
PREPARE YOURSELF.

Well, it’s been a long time.  Lot’s of changes and “new normals” but some things aren’t meant for change!  Leapfrog is all about the long game and keeping you moving forward!  With that in mind, it’s time to get back to our Running and The Fundamentals that come along with movement!  

We’ve got to get started again..and Friday is THAT TIME!  Regardless of how you handled the quarantine it’s time to come back and PREPARE YOURSELF w/Leapfrog.  Start where you are…there is no expectation!  Some have run more…some have run less…some not at all…You are All Welcome and Encouraged!!  

Friday we get back to some basics in Venitian Village with small run units focused on Breathing, Posture and Arms.  It’s great for everyone and I hope you can make it!  

Friday evening we make our official “Return to the Beach!” with the Friday Night Swim/Social.  A great sunset awaits as do smiles and stories!  I look forward to seeing you!!


I look forward to re-grouping face 2 face this FRIDAY!!  

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

Stay Safe and Sane…

KEEP MOVING FORWARD
