YES it's finally warm out, but in very New England style, it went from chilly to offensively hot and sticky. Oh well, it still helps put those dark days of February and January more in the rearview. Everyone have their favorite outdoor activity planned for the weekend? Maybe even a couple? Enough with the small talk, here is the (only) insta post of the week.
Now that you've seen my muddy face for the 3rd time, here's the good stuff;
Good Things That Get Ruined When Taken to Extremes- We as a society tend to take things just a wee bit too far, I think we can all agree on that. Even the really good things can turn into bad things when we do this. Give Nia Shanks post a read and maybe it'll prevent you from turning into one of those really annoying people.
Acknowledge Your Fit Privilege- We train and move so we have the ability to do things that we enjoy doing for a long time. Be it, playing a sport, wrestling with the kids, or just being able to get up out of your chair without help, we all have our reasons. James S Fell's article here is a look at what can be done for the other's that aren't so mobile or strong. (Side Note: Not a fan of seeing Paltrow as the first picture, but still an interesting piece).
How to Get More Professional Referals- On the more business side of things this week, it's not a really mystery that you need a good network of professionals to make your training top notch. Pat Rigsby's post from last month is a really good guide on how to make it happen, and he knows a thing or two about making it happen.
