SeaMade: 30 Day Run Challenge A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison
I love a good challenge. Proving something to myself and overcoming an obstacle I didn’t think I could makes me feel like Kelly Slater the day he won his 11th world title. So what has my latest challenge been? Running. Let me introduce you to the SeaMade 30 Day Running Challenge. There is not much explanation necessary- just run for 30 days straight.
Don’t think you can do it? Whether your excuse is “I’m too busy” or “I don’t like to run”, read on for reasons why you CAN do it…
SeaMade: Cross-Training A series on surf, cross training and lessons on all things salty by guest blogger, Madison
As Mister Jagger says, “You can’t always get what you want” and so it goes for the life of a surfer on the hunt for waves. Sure, those rollers you see in the distance of above photo are ridebale, but there are days where my activity needs to be stepped up a notch. Running provides me with an outlet for my energy and is one of the best on-land cross-trainings for surfing. Speeding up those legs of yours will prepare you for longer surf sessions and bigger waves, as well as keep you lean and mean so you can keep fitting those teeny kinis and second-skin wetsuits. Even when there are waves, I like to do a pre-surf hustle to warm up my muscles, especially if I’m in a cold climate. Like surfing, running is free, and you can challenge yourself in many ways…hit the beach, trail, stairs, gym, and switch it up between sprints and distance running to really get a workout. Once you get into running, it becomes easier and you can set new goals. What’s that saying? Oh ya- just do it!
