Skill & Self Care
Christmas week, time to spend time with friends and family. Do NOT let the hustle and bustle overwhelm. Don’t be afraid to say no to an engagement that you aren’t stoked to go to, it’s okay.
This time of year we tend to get caught up feeling like we have to do everything, get everyone something, and attend all the shin-digs. STOP, seriously stop for a second and ask yourself how meaningful that event or this gift is.
Don’t buy a bunch of stuff that is going to sit in someone’s closet, or end up in a yard sale two years from now. If it’s not the absolute most coolest thing you can think to get that person that you know they’re going to love and cherish then don’t buy it. Make a handwritten invitation to go to a specific restaurant at a specific time two months from now., you know, make it an INVITATION. Take 15min to make it. then wrap it in a box so they have something to open. Take 10min to wrap that gift. The give it to them, and when they open it tell them you want to spend some time hanging out, talking, listening when life isn’t so hectic. And just like that you’ve given something that you can both look forward to that came from you. Not just pulled off a shelf.
SKILL – Perform at least 2-3x throughout the week. This can be used in conjunction with your warm-up for both S&C and Running Sessions or on their own during “off days”.
Loaded Carry – Pick your poison Senior SFG Franz Snideman shows variations of the “Farmers Walk”
5-7x 50m L/R
RUN/TECH – Perform as part of your warm-up for Running sessions in conjunction with other Run/Tech drills you’ve been given.
Pull – We concentrated on Falling last week, now we need to just get our feet out of the way. Practice whatever “Pull” drill makes sense for you.
MOBILITY/SELF CARE – Spend a minimum of 10:00 a day working on mobility and positioning work. This will help keep you injury free and able to perform. Start looking for and finding little 2-3:00 mobility “snack” during the day if you are finding it hard to dedicate 10-15:00 at one time.
