2011: Darling half-marathon, 3 hrs 14mins 47 s

EFT tapping statements used:

Oh this hill is oh so steep, but I will not break down and weep!

Oh this road is oh so long, I will I will I will be strong! [In the future tense simply because it rhymed better]

Oh my God, I´m gonna die, I deeply love and accept myself (at the beginning, whilst maintaining 7.2 km/hr for the first hour)

¨New Balance, to the side. No, New Balance, to the back¨ – this was a nasty jibe given by a group of runners who passed me and not exactly said in a nice tone of voice. After this jibe, I fell back and my speed dropped. It took me about 15 minutes to tap the jibe out of my system, and then I worked on recovering my speed again. I also tapped on forgiving them, because they are just a***holes, doing what a***holes do (taken from an original EFT DVD and very apt for the occasion)

Thank you knee, thank you hips (healing statements for my less-than-optimal zones)

This hip pain, I deeply love and accept myself (using Collarbone and 9-Gamut, towards the end, when my hip started to hurt. As a result of the tapping, I changed my running style and also walked a little more, in order to help my body, until the hip joint felt very fluid again)

18 [km] by the 15 [minutes past 11 am] (I said this all the way from the 15 km mark whilst finger-rubbing. I also planned in my head to catch up with the lady whom I thought was the last person to overtake me and offer her some sweets, as she was struggling. I found out afterwards that there had been at least three other people behind me anyway, but it was a good goal, which I achieved. She made it to the finish about 5 minutes after me. Then came the other 3)

Finish by the 50 [minutes past 11] (whilst going up the very steep hill towards the finish and then running-walking-hobbling towards that finishing line – I made it at 11:44:47)

Tapping music used:

This time, I did not bring my iPod, although next time I plan to. However, I played the theme from Superman in my head anytime I needed it, especially towards the end. I also imagined crowds cheering, and played in my head the sounds of cheering crowds. Throughout the sounds in my head, I rubbed or tapped my finger points.

Other techniques used:

The Buteyko breathing method – I kept my mouth closed (except to speak when necessary) throughout the race, monitored my CP before the race, and did my Buteyko exercises at the warm-up and warming up to almost every single training session in the last 8 months.

 

When you have a chronic physical condition, anything that either emotionally or physically has a negative impact on you can make the condition worse. EFT is one way of throwing away the emotional rubbish collecting in your system. In the same way that we dispose of our household rubbish regularly for home cleanliness and hygiene, I use EFT to dispose of negative emotions for my optimal physical health. I call an emotion anything that your mind or body says to you, from fear to constricted airways. My health was not always as good as this. Please go back to around 2005 on this blog to get to the worst postings (when I was often bed-ridden, unable to breathe enough to get out of bed), if you are looking for how to tap for those really bad days of health.

Cold Humid Weather Asthma Management With EFT

It is autumn in Cape Town. I live by the sea, where the fresh sea air is lovely. However, right now, the cold makes the fresh sea air like ice in my lungs, especially my left lung, which has the breathing challenge. So, I had to go downstairs to put the clothes out on the line. I was actually trying to avoid that, but our neighbour who smokes (who is a lovely person otherwise, I must add) was in, and I didn´t want to put my wet gym kit on the balcony only to find it reeking of smoke in the morning. Mind you, it is unlikely that this would have happened, as it is rather chilly for going out to smoke in this weather. But I wasn´t taking any chances. So downstairs I went…

And then the cold humid air hit my lungs. So I tapped, my favorite tapping, rubbing the finger points together, as I said:

¨Cold humid air, I deeply love and accept myself¨.

I did this throughout the time I was downstairs and as a result, did not need my inhaler. I even went back up via the stairs rather than the lift. It was easy!

I Did It! I Ran for 15 Minutes Straight by the Beach!

I said in my previous posting that I will report back – well, I excelled my expectations!

I think I did it because:

  • I wrote out the Runners World beginners running program on one sheet of A4 that I put in front of me on the wall next to my computer. So I always see it when working on the computer.
  • I worked out the distances involved and wrote them down. This got me more involved in thinking the task, imagining I am there and what that would involve.
  • I took a comforting item with me (my mobile phone as my stop-watch) and wore clothes I feel comfortable in.
  • I used the Buteyko breathing method to help me build my breathing running stamina.
  • I worked my legs in the gym using weights, and also attended classes, to strengthen the muscles.
  • I used EFT for any block in my path.

I hope this helps motivate you or yours for achieving any sports goal you want. I´ll keep you posted on my progress.
