Why do you make time to live fit?
Living a healthy and active lifestyle encourages me to be passionate, goal-oriented and learn from my experiences. My workouts benefit not only my physical health, but also my mental and emotional health.
Give your top 2 reasons how living fit helps you be a successful leader
Through living fit, I have learned what it takes to be an effective leader in a group setting. I enjoyed coordinating a Couch to 5K program for my patients that were new to running. Working with multiple schedules, goals, and personalities is challenging and I believe it is important to make sure each participant has a positive experience. Fitness has also taught me the importance of patience. Whether your goal is fitness or recovering from injury, we need to allow our bodies time to respond and recover.
Describe your weekly workout routine
I run 7 days a week, between 8 to 20+ miles per day. I adjust the intensity of my daily workouts, depending on the season. For the 2014 Boston Marathon, I ran many 100+mile weeks. Tuesdays and Thursdays are typically my harder workouts, either 45-60 minutes of hill repeats, 8x-mile, or 8-12 miles at tempo-pace. Sundays are usually set aside for longer runs (18-23 miles). I try to lift weights 4 days a week. I typically switch between push, pull, leg day, and corrective exercise. And I work a full schedule as a chiropractor, which is also a workout!
