Coach MK livestreams the #WeeklyWins and answers the questions of Fitness Protection members each week. They are a lot of fun, super informative! This week, Coach MK talks about cold weather running gear and the outlook for 2021 races.    #WeeklyWins - 3:10 Runner Interrupted ReBuild Char Gore woke up to pouring rain, but decided she wasn’t going to let that stop her from getting her run in.  Managed 3 miles with her pup in the rain. Char Gore has 2 wins this week!  She had her 3 month post cancer treatment appointment and all signs point to it being completely gone! She was able to start running again in October and said “she can feel the strength coming back - I even love tackling hills because it is a tangible sign that I am stronger.  In 2021 I'm excited to be a beast!” Maintain Brenda Haskill had some great cross country skiing lately.  She said she hit 33 miles of skiing this week for my staycation holiday! Crazy and fun.  I’ll be back to running Monday-Friday due to work and skiing on the weekend. HR training with FPP all year sure made my ski season a lot better and I adapted to it so fast. I’m skiing uphill like a beast right now! 😀 Amy Wilson got creative and added studs to an old pair of running shoes for her winter running.  She was a beast and ran 8.7 miles in the snow! Trisha Thorme ran 600 miles in 2020.   Questions - 5:37 ReBuild - 5:50 Hi Coach, I’m struggling to get in a cold weather running groove.  I find myself way over layering trying to stay comfortable when I set out and then end up annoyed with all the clothes I am discarding 10 min in when I get overly warm.  If I only wear what I’m happy in 10 minutes in, I find that I can’t seem to get warmed up and am miserable the whole run.  Any suggestions for clothing/warmth management.  Maintain - 9:50 My social media feeds are filled with adverts for these post workout leg compression devices. Any thoughts on these? Here's an example https://photos.app.goo.gl/w86JrhMK9fBtZkW28 What’s your take on the racing outlook for 2021?  Do you think it makes sense to start building for an early fall marathon.     Click here to subscribe to our podcast, Running Life, and get more racing and training tips from the coaches!   Coach MK Fleming is the founder of Fitness Protection, LLC.

Coach MK livestreams the #WeeklyWins and answers the questions of Fitness Protection members each week. They are a lot of fun, super informative! This week, Coach MK talks about Romjul and more details about Slow Buring starting in January.   #WeeklyWins - 13:18 Runner Interrupted ReBuild Brenda Haskill has had some huge Personal accomplishments for 2020 she : 🌟Worked with a therapist for 1st time 🌟started Prozac 🌟shed 25 lbs of excess baggage 🌟most important: made my health a priority; especially my mental health 💪 Alicia Budd said “As tough as this year has been in a lot of ways, it’s been a good one for personal growth. I took charge of my physical and mental health and finally learned (out of necessity) how to take one day at a time.” Christine Lancaster prioritized movement this year even when she had many factors working against her. Maintain Daniel Faltyn won his 10k race Corina Terry had some great holiday runs.  She has been happy with her progress this year in Maintain.  She is stronger and happier now than when she started and is amazed by all the things she is capable of doing.   Questions- 16:04 ReBuild  Hi coach, I’m really excited to start Slow Burn.  When will the website portal be open to start checking out the content? Maintain  Hi Coach and Merry Christmas! I’d like to tackle strength more seriously before Slow Burn starts. Would it be possible to have written instructions for the strength exercises when we have a new set in January? I understand why posting the strength videos doesn’t work now but could use some explanation of the moves. Thanks for all of your work! Hi Coach, in-person races are starting to come back where I am but I’m nervous.  Any thoughts on if it’s possible to participate safely?  I really want to but my gut tells me no.   Click here to subscribe to our podcast, Running Life, and get more racing and training tips from the coaches!   Coach MK Fleming is the founder of Fitness Protection, LLC.

Coach MK livestreams the #WeeklyWins and answers the questions of Fitness Protection members each week. They are a lot of fun, super informative! This week, Coach MK talks about Slow Burn starting in January.    #WeeklyWins - 9:35 Runner Interrupted ReBuild Christine Lancaster felt good about the amount of running she was able to get in during the month of November. Brenda Haskill found her run helpful in shaking off the anxiety caused by a bad dream. Beth Hobson has been a badass at work and is excited about turning her badassery towards her running since her work is calming down. Maintain Corina Terry had a great run where she listened to Christmas music while she ran. 🎶 🎄 ❄️ she said, “ It was fun & brought back lots of Christmas memories. Made me happy”. 😊 Sara Seeburg picked snuggles with kiddo over running!   Francine Sheller is proud of having been super consistent with her strength in the month of November.   Questions - 13:24 ReBuild - 13:24 Can you talk about layering for cold weather running?  I’m usually a winter weenie and run on the treadmill, but I don’t have one at home, and the gym is closed again, so it looks like if I want to run, it’s going to be outside. Can you talk through or demo the strength moves for this month? I’m at a loss without the extra guidance. Thanks! Maintain - 22:32 Hi there. So this is sort of a visual question. I'm going to include a link to 2 different runs. One is Friday's stride sandwich. The other is Saturday's long run. Succinctly, for both of these runs, is my goal to get my heart rate back down to 140 as quickly as possible? For me, I typically do a two-mile warm-up, then one mile with 30 seconds fast, one minute slow. A lot of times, that one minute slow, really isn't that slow. I'm not sure if I should be slowing down a lot more to get my heart rate down. I'm happy with how it's working out for me; the other graph there is Saturday's long run, where I have a lot more time to get the heart rate down after the pickup. Lastly, I'm still lobbying to have this run renamed the Monty Burns because the graph looks like his fingers. Anyway, thanks for listening. https://photos.app.goo.gl/y3Hd7rzFi5HeJnHp8 I’d like to know a little more about the slow burn program.  For more information and hear from past Slow Burn "graduates," listen to this FPP "Slow Burn"  episode from November 17, 2019.
