Breaking my fast with some leftover Sweet & Spicy Chicken (recipe via @dat_keto_lady). My goal was to do a 14 hour fast, but I’m working on listening to my body and eating when I’m hungry so here I am.
Ready to be off work and get this weekend started!
What’s for dinner?! Share below!
This summer Kyle Goodman (@goodmanrunning) became a National Champion in the 800m. This past week we had an amazing conversation. These are some things we discussed.
What are some challenges you have had to face in your running career, and how did you deal with those?
The primary challenge I had going for me was adjusting to the level of training required to make it to the next level, the level competition only going harder and harder so it was pretty self-evident that I would need to make some adjustment in order for me to succeed
What motivates you to run?
My primary motivation for running, is knowing that I will be much better off health wise is more than enough for me to keep going, as well as testing and surpassing the limit of my speed. And I just run for a good hobby as well, very calming.
Any favorite running memories?
Favorite Memories I would say is AAU Nationals when I became a 17-18 800m National Champion and we had many heart to heart moment with the coaches some of which I'd never forget, New Balance Nationals in which our girls 4x100m really killed it and even till now, I am still very proud of them.
Any upcoming races?
UAB Invitational(?) In January I may be runnung the 600m or 500m, not sure
What is the biggest piece of advice you could give to an aspiring young runner?
My biggest advice for young aspiring runner is that, just be sure to have fun while you train and run, while you may have admirable aspiration for competing at a higher level, just remember to have fun in some way, otherwise you will lose your passion for the soort very fast. Also, be sure to remain humble and show acts of humility toward your competitors, arrogance will not take you very far
Oh and run with a purpose to strive with excellence, finding your inner warrior spirit, training with a common goal of improvement and the sky will be the limit. I wasn't always ranked in the 800m, I had to fight my way to get to the top and I will tell you that If I can go from unranked freshman year to National Champion senior year, I promise you you can do it.
