#EngageTheBasics April Challenge

#EngageTheBasics April Challenge

Barbara created this challenge as a means for us to remember the basics needed to continue on our journey to being a stronger runner. Taking all of 8 minutes, it consists of 2minutes foam rolling (I added in 5 min instead of 2, as I can never get anything done in 2min) 1 minute plank 1 minute side planks (30 sec. Each side) 1 minute push-ups (however you need to do them- knees, stability ball, etc.) 1 minute clam shells…

Oh! The things I do for bling (or a TShirt!).   I very rarely sign up for 5k races without looking at the weather forecast. The logistics of the race takes more time than the running itself. The Atlanta Women’s 5k race had the allure of a really cute TShirt, in purple this year, and a necklace. It also was to be my first “race” race, where I planned to run it to the best of my ability and then…

I hate wearing compression socks with capris though. Just weird! Finished off with a pink smoothie! Bananas, frozen mixed berries, brocoli, carrots, protein powder, chia and flax with double…

What’s Next? Post Little Rock Marathon

What’s Next? Post Little Rock Marathon

Now that I have successfully gotten through my goal of finishing Little Rock Marathon, what’s next in store for me?  I had gone into the race pretty burnt out with running and frustrated with the forced pace changed in the past 4 months. I came out having rediscovered my running mojo and looking for what to do next.  I’m taking a break from the marathon distance; something that I should have done last spring! But using this time to strengthen…

All Out Low Impact HIIT by Cathe

As a (faux) runner, I have been looking avidly at different types of cross-training and strength training. Of late, given the constraints of time in a full-time working mom’s life, I have started looking into at home DVDs and have been doing the couple I have. I was looking to change things up when I received this DVD from Cathe. The ‘All Out Low Impact HIIT’ is part of the X-Train series. When I first got the DVD, I was…
