Marathon analogy

Marathon analogy
02 Dec

In marathon terms, we are at mile 20 with regard to the Covid pandemic. You’re tired and ready for it to be over. But you’re not a quitter; you know that if you stick to the original plan you’ll get through this. The finish line is ahead…. don’t give up!
I hope that we all can feel this happy at 12:01am on Jan. 1

Need a plan to start out the New Year, send me an email at phyllis@strongbystrand.com and we can get you set up.

Cheerfully yours,

Coach Phyllis

VOTE

03 Nov

I was thinking this morning about the first presidential election that I was eligible to vote in. I had to look it up because I did not remember it! I think that this election will be alot different for any first time voter.

The pandemic has changed everything. It has always been important to vote and have a say in your local representatives but looking back on the several times I have voted, i never felt this much of a focus on the election.

So on Tuesday this will be my strategy.

No Doomscrolling. 

Doomscrolling is endlessly reading bad news story after bad news story, and understandably can leave you feeling… bad.

I will set aside a block of time to look at the news once or twice a day and go directly to a source I can trust. It can be tempting to see other perspectives on the same story, but that can lead to more anxiety.

Exercise

This is my go to for most everything anyway so why not?

Yesterday, I had planned to run the TCS NYC marathon for the second time. It is the 50th anniversary of the race and I started running at 50 so it all works. Since signing up in Jan 2020 alot has changed. The race went virtual, along with any and all training races I had planned.

So instead of running, I am going to join in on a fitness challenge that starts today.
