Caring. Isn’t. Canceled. Today we did a socially distant birthday song and visit to one of our favourite dudes! Before Covid he had asked if one of our athletes he admired could come to his Birthday Party. While we didn’t have a party, we made sure that he got a visit from the teammate he so loves.
Thank you for everyone participating in the #dontrushchallenge . It’s amazing to see people around the world 🌎 participating together to have some fun during these times.
Individually we are Isolated, but together we are United! #stayhome#staysafe

💥How to improve PUSH OFF from the ground as you RUN💥(🎥 Via:@jpgloria.dpt )
🔎There seems to be a misconception about which muscles contribute the MOST during propulsion, which is where the foot pushes against the ground to move forward➡️! A common belief is that the glutes🍑 provide the most force during this phase; however, this is NOT true🚫. It is actually another muscle!
🦵The calf muscles contribute the MOST to propulsion! For slower runs🏃♂️, increases in vertical ground force, are mostly due to the calf muscles, specifically the soleus. To do this, these muscles produce around 6-8x your bodyweight🏋️♂️, which is the MOST force generated from the body as you run.
💎Therefore, strengthening the calf muscles may be ESSENTIAL to improving your ability to push off the ground, which results in a larger step, and ultimately running faster!⬆️
🔑Now, here are some great calf strengthening exercises I incorporate in many strength training programs for runners:
1️⃣Heel Raises- A popular and simple exercise included to strengthen the calf muscles.
2️⃣Supported SL Heel Raise- A great way to load the calf muscle in a single leg position, while removing the balance aspect of it. Inspired by @zerenpt
3️⃣SL Bent Knee Heel Raise- This targets more of the soleus, which is important as I mentioned earlier.

@jaymarcusd Mistakes are a fact of life. It’s your response to an error that really counts. Take chances, make mistakes that’s how you grow - First and Last race of 2020 indoor 👌🏾
☀️Trying something different today!
I have decided to set a goal to run around my block every ⏰hour today because why not?🤷🏼♀️ (0.5 miles every hour)
💭During these times it’s especially important to move throughout the day! I’ve learned that the more you chill out and don’t do anything, the more you will become lazy and bummed out.
💯Literally like if I don’t do anything I feel so bla... but once I do something productive I’m like🔥YESSS let’s keep this vibe going🤙🏼
❗️So if you get up and move your body, you will become more productive and feel good!
❓What have you been doing during these times to stay productive and get in that fresh mindset?!
