Throw your hat over the wall
Here we stand, at the end our first full week back outside and it has been incredible to see everyone smashing out their sessions. Honestly, the way we are vibing and building into the big things ahead is incredible. At this time of year, we usually would be congratulating the people that just completed UTA100, 50km or 22km & SMH Half Marathon last weekend, starting to look at City 2 Surf registrations, (still are) preparing Winter FEAT teams and much more!
'Meaning' by Chris Hauth
Being back outside for training seems like a cherry on top and something worth celebrating. But when going to write something about these thoughts, nothing came out. So rather than trying to force something to say, I thought I would share a piece of writing that I love and that says everything I would want to say at the moment. This is called 'Meaning' by Chris Hauth.
Winter is where the magic happens
In the words of House Stark from GOT - winter is coming! For some people, winter becomes a period of ‘hibernation’. Much like grizzly bears, people prepare themselves for this hibernation by eating out more often, more take away meals (especially at the moment), plenty of comfort food and most notably, less movement or training for a 3 month period.
As some of you know me, you know I can’t do anything in halves. This week I want to look at why we may set goals for training (or life) and what are some things to think about through this FEAT From Home period. But, I do want to say that I have changed my tune about goal setting over the past couple of years. I think that knowing where you are going and why is a great way to get things done. Yet it is equally important to have areas in your life where you are just still and submit to the experience, going with the flow. So as I talk here, it is from the perspective of productivity in the most contemporary way we think about it. I do just want to say it is ok to think about your life as just being, as it is.
Training is where the magic happens!
At FEAT we believe that training is where the magic happens! Without amazing TRAINING sessions, our community does not exist. It is something that us trainers love to geek out on together so that when you turn up and have questions about the programming, we are able to provide actual answers. Obviously, with the COVID-19 changes, our programming has had to take a new shape. So, I thought I would take the opportunity to share how we are structuring your FEAT From Home training and why!
