Understanding Neural Tension in the Body

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of people dealing with neural tension or nerve pain. I just wanted to share a little riff on Neural Tension in the body from the perspective of a Physical Therapist and Yoga Teacher.

Note: This is NOT medical advice. If you are in pain, seek out a PT :)

Zen Out

In a world that's SO OBSESSED with productivity, we often forget that in order to achieve, we must make time for REST.

If you are...

feeling overworked & stressed
struggling with muscle pain, soreness, & spasms
burning the midnight oil at your computer for the sake of #productivity
having a hard time sleeping because your circadian rhythms are off...

Considerations When Choosing a Race

Whether you already have your races planned out or you’re still deciding, here are some things to take into consideration when choosing which races to run (especially if it’s an ultra!).​​​​​​​​
1. Time of year​​​​​​​​
This goes for when the actual race is and when you’d be training leading up to the race. Spring races sound awesome for lots of people until they realize that means they need to train through the winter.​​​​​​​​
2. Location​​​​​​​​
Where is the race and where are you training? Will you be able to train on similar terrain (not a requirement but does help)? How does the climate differ between locations?​​​​​​​​
3. Your excitement​​​​​​​​
This one is arguably the most important. I’m not going to tell you not to choose a race, but if the race you want to run doesn’t excite you, it might be worth reevaluating whether you really want to do it.​​​​​​​​
4. Race logistics​​​​​​​​
Does the race require you to travel to a different destination? How will you travel? Where will you stay? Or if it’s more local, will you drive there on race morning or in days prior? How much will the traveling be? Will traveling add more stress than you want?​​​​​​​​
5. Life commitments​​​​​​​​
During the time leading up to the race, what is going on in other aspects of your life that would affect training? Will you have enough time and energy to train safely for this race?​​​​​​​​
Choosing a race is highly individual, so these questions are just some to ask yourself when thinking of signing up for a race.​​​​​​​​
