Inhale good shit, exhale bullshit.

When you tell people you’re eating healthier, running more often these days, regularly working out, the response is mostly positive and encouraging.

However, you’ll also come across people who’ll say things to you like “how can you eat that shit everyday?” “Oh come on, one more drink?..” “You’re no longer fun” “How boring …!” “Live a little” “You are not what you used to be” “Who gets up at 5 o clock on a Sunday morning?” and all the other mundane reactions and responses.

Trust me, don’t take them personally. You are doing what is best for you and hopefully your friends or family members are doing the same for themselves.

No one will understand the lifestyle that YOU want to LIVE – so don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams. Don’t EVER let that happen.

Let’s not waste another day breathing in toxic air. Take in who and what feels good and discard the rest.

Inhale good shit, exhale all the bullshit.

Take a deep breath and let it go 😀

This breathing technique is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. The power of deep calm, easing the body into a state of calmness and relaxation.

Method:

1. Close your mouth and inhale through your nose for 4 seconds.

2. Hold your breath for 7 seconds while your muscles tense.

3. Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound for 8 seconds and let it all go 😀

Repeat 4-5 times or until you are calm and your heartbeat is back to normal.

This breathing technique works so well for me that it puts me into a relaxed state immediately.

I prefer doing this post my Interval runs and / or High intensity workouts.⠀

PR – 5K – 21:11

P R – Two letters that make every runner smile 😬😬

Today I ran a 5K PR in 21 minutes 11 seconds as part of #NYRR Virtual Racing powered by #Strava. It feels AWESOME 😎

I still have a long way to go if I have to beat 5K < 20 minutes. That’s tough, but nothing is impossible. 🤭🤭
