I’ve been reading a book called “Ready To Run” and have found out that all my life I’ve been running wrong. The foot is designed in such a way that if you run on your toes your foot functions like a spring and absorbs the shock. My knees are saying “Thanks! But what took you so long??” The difference is huge.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that this 65 year old body has been accustomed to running wrong for so long that doing it correctly now gives the body something new to complain about.

The word for today is – plantar fasciitis. Although the knees feel the relief, the connective tissue in the foot are now stretching in ways they are not accustomed to.

Modify as needed – no rucking today. All shoulder workout.

The three Fs of F3 are Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith, in that order. Why? “Because men who have no self-control over what they eat or drink and the daily use to which they put their bodies become captive to their lack of physical fitness.” Q-Source

Join us and we’ll work on that self-control thing together. And maybe we’ll learn some new tricks, too.
