Healing an injury
can be a challenging and frustrating situation thus it is vital to remember to allow yourself to heal properly. 
I like to think of it as my body talking to me, perhaps even telling me to slow down. Whatever it takes to heal, just do it. Be kind to your body cause it does a lot of work for us from the inside out on a daily basis: it never gets to take a break.
Do this: breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth a few times before you get angry with your injury.
Good things to us all! 

Until the next time🙋🏻
 

Good to be able to walk

Calming the frustration

Cross training helps get me into better shape by making me stronger and able to go farther. Hiking fast up steep hills/fartleking is an incredible natural high. Most times, I just can’t get enough.

  
Until our next encounter, this is Yoli singing off from one of my many paradises!

Another Race is Acomin! Cherry Canyon!

On September 10th, I’ll be running over pristine almost virgin land. Yes my fellow friends, I’m talking about the highly coveted Diablo Canyon Hills! 

We, my running partner and I, missed spots for the 13 miler but got lucky when 50 extra spots were added for the 5 miler. Very exciting indeed! 

Until the next up date, keep on running hiking and laughing.

She’s here…author Thea Gregory

 

Hello everyone! The moment we’ve been waiting for!

I would like to share some great information with you about author Thea Gregory’s new book, Sanity Vacuum!

 

Author of Sanity Vacuum and more….

 

Release Date: December 6, 2012.

Sanity Vacuum Synopsis:

 

Vivian Skye just finished university, and qualified for her first-choice internship. Not many would consider the distant and isolated Extra-Galactic Observatory cushy, but it’s a dream come true for Vivian. Hailing from the low-tech planet of Aurora, she studied hard for this opportunity—and to leave her old life, and planet behind.

 Her assignment is simple: perform a routine upgrade for the station’s supercomputer, quIRK. Her reception isn’t a friendly one, and eccentric quIRK becomes her only friend. However, the station’s administrator, Bryce Zimmer is obsessed with quIRK—he suspects that the station’s computer may have achieved sentience, something explicitly prohibited by the ABACUS Protocol. Compounding their issues, Bryce’s traumatic and privileged past makes him distrust Vivian from the beginning. Desperate to keep control, he sabotages quIRK in order to eliminate Vivian. But, his plan threatens to consume the entire station and send them into the unknown void of intergalactic space.

 Vivian must struggle to survive not only Bryce’s megalomania, but also the emerging artificial super intelligence that is quIRK. Can Vivian and quIRK learn to trust each other and work together, before it’s too late?

Sanity Vacuum is book one of The ABACUS Protocol.

Race day here and gone…

Here I come slowly yet surely

There I am, see the person with the number? Yeehaw! I feel fantastic and accomplished. Though I came in two minutes after the three-hour mark, I’m still proud of myself.

I must admit that I almost threw in the towel at mile ten. Yes, my moderate injury began to get the best of my psyche. Making matters more intense, the Fluid and water stations were out of cups–NO! Yes. Oh yes indeed. This was after stopping twice and walking for several minutes contemplating failure to complete the race.

Instead of allowing the anger rushing through me to cancel me out all together, I used said anger to plunge on to the finish line . Consequently–in a strange way–I’m grateful I became angry.

Now it’s time to plan for my next race, only this time I’ll run for a different cause, a more meaningful one, and fair far better both mentally and physically.

Until the next time, I wish you all well and achievement of your own goals.

Ciao for now,

yms
