Midweek Motivation - Explore, Dream, Discover

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover. –Mark Twain
Happy 7th birthday to our Munchkin!!

From Scoot Bike to Pedals

Little A has been riding a scoot bike for about a year, and the last couple months Kovas has been slowly getting him on a pedal bike.  This past weekend - he rode all by himself!!

A scoot bike, or a two wheel bike without pedals or training wheels, is by far is the best way for a child to learn to ride.  It teaches them balance and skips the training wheel stage.  Bummed we didn't have a scoot bike for the other 3. :)

Tuesday Training - Zero Limits

My new Altra Intuition 1.5

As part of my ZOOMA Ambassador perks, I recently received a pair of Altra Intuition 1.5 running shoes.  I have only worn them a couple of times but am already really liking them.

Altra Zero Drop Footwear

So how are they different from my other running shoes?  The main differences for me are the zero drop and a foot-shaped toe box.  Zero drop means the heel and forefoot are the same height off the ground which helps to align the body to its natural position and allows for a more natural foot strike.   The foot-shaped toe box is not just a wide toe box, but actually shaped just like a healthy foot in a sock which helps to maintain proper foot position.

In adjusting to the new shoes, Altra suggests to alternate zero drop shoes with traditional shoes for a few weeks.  I'll give my full review once I've run in them some more...

Have you tried zero drop shoes?
