Hello from the lovely Englewood, Florida.
Did you see the 8 year old kid on Ellen? The kid who is a personal trainer from Jamaica? He challenged Usain Bolt to a race and I mentioned he’s 8 right? And a personal trainer of sorts. Well the race is obviously a bit staged but oh my God is this kid the cutest thing. You have to watch it. (At around the 4:48 mark there is a hilarious moment, it cracked me up.)
No Weakness! We know muscle! I am going to put that on my iPod. That kid is so motivating.
Today is a rest day for me and MacGyver and I are just taking care of some things down here in Englewood. I have 19 miles in for the week so far so after my long run and easy run this weekend I should be where I need to be. I’m increasing my mileage slowly each week and then I’ll start working on speed again.
I’ve gotten a little slower this year and I was concerned about it so I did a little research as I normally do on ways to increase speed as you get older and I found this next article pretty interesting.

I’ve obviously got to get to work on my strength training and weight workouts!
Do you feel like you’re getting faster or slower as you get older?
Did the 8 year old personal trainer motivate you too?
What are your weekend plans?
