Feeling Extra Stressed in 2020? Harder Workouts Not Always the Answer
We feel stressed. We have a pandemic, fires, civil rights issues, home schooling, and of course it's an election year. My husband also shared with me that since everyone left for telework in August, rattlesnakes infested buildings in an office park in upstate NY.
Seriously, RATTLESNAKES? This is all so heavy. The rattlesnakes are supposed to bring levity😊, but it also gives us an opportunity to discuss what happens when we experience stress.

Don’t Forget, Stay Hydrated
by Coach Jeff BarnettAt the Week 7 seminar we discussed the importance of hydration and how to do it properly for long distances. Remember to focus this week and in future weeks on getting between 80 oz to 100 oz of water per day - that’s 8-10 glasses of water or about 3 liters. It sounds like a lot, but if you constantly keep a bottle with you and on your desk while at work, it’s easy to do.
Keep Moving, Keep Winning
Thoughts on Gear for the Trailby Coach Jeff PrestonI wanted to talk a bit about gear as we move into longer distances in our walks/runs. I've included links where possible for anyone that's interested in learning more.
Water Stop Update
Keep Social Distancing in Mind to Prevent Spread of Covid-19As AustinFit now enters its sixth week of summer training, the full marathon group will complete its first Saturday route in excess of five miles. With that, we will be having our first water stop.
Because of the ongoing challenges presented by the community spread of the virus that causes Covid-19, let’s take a moment to review how we will incorporate social distancing into our water stops.
