Never say never…

Here I go again. I have said in the past, never say never…. LOL In this case it refers to me leaving the middle distance discipline to pursue what I did as a youth athlete; namely, sprinting. However, life took me out of Miami and brought me to West Florida where I found a budding elite middle distance group taking form and a super talented coach.

Seeing this made me once again consider moving up to the 800m. I have nothing but respect for these types of runners as they can sprint fast AND hit the pavement, or trails, for miles on end. I believe my main problem before with this distance was primarily having to train myself, in effect running into the ground through over training. Now having a coach to guide me and to ensure I don’t over do it has allowed me to enjoy the training and distance, gradually increasing fitness over time.

Who knows what the future holds, but feeling is a good indicator of what is right or wrong. This move up again feels right and I believe a good place considering my athletic abilities. I am looking forward to this track season…I will update accordingly. 😉

Have fun, be You and love your Self in all ways… 🙂

Cheers!!!

About Alexander

My passion in life is to live free and to learn; thus, I approach life living in the moment and enjoying the ride. Not to say I don’t get caught up with goals from time to time as applying a strategy for our future is vital, yet I constantly strive to detach from any expectations as the future is unknown and being built by the present. My present strategy is to live an impeccable life of an elite runner and pursue high levels of fitness. What I have learned in my life through sport is that it is very easy to get caught up on the goal. It wasn’t until recently that I developed sufficient enough wisdom to truly realize the destructive manner in which I approached sports which caused all types of injuries. Having to coach myself, I had to learn to temper this and find a balance through my training regimens lest I end up regularly damaged physically, mentally, emotionally and, deep down inside, spiritually. Once I came to terms with my destructive behavior I found the peace and calmness I was always searching for. I still have my ups and downs, as we all do, but instead of fighting the down portions of my life I search for understanding like a soul surfer experiences the troughs of waves - feeling for a way to get back up.
