Kickin Off Fall With New Posts
Change of season means change of pace, right? This rings true in both our personal (work, family, holidays) life and our active life (running, gym, football, whatever you do to stay healthy). With that being said I will be making my best effort to balance this thing that resembles a “blog” with my day-to-day stuff in addition to I keep things rocking on the health/running front during a time of year when it’s easy to give up (why hello cooler weather and delicious pumpkin trifle).
Reader AMY (who has won two giveaways here!) has requested a post on how I fit in 10, yes 10, fruits and veggies a day. No, that doesn’t count my baby food, lol. I started taking some photos this morning and will have that post up in the next couple of days. I am also putting the finishing touches on a few more strength training routines I use and have seen awesome results!
If anyone has any other requests please do not hesitate to ask. If there is one thing I love to do is share how I make things work as a super busy mama of 2 young kiddos. It is NOT impossible to eat healthy, run/workout, work full time and take care of a family. It’s all about balance…
Speaking Of Balance
The November edition of Runner’s World arrived in the mail yesterday. I am one of those people that skims from back to front first. I then check out the ads for upcoming races and consider doing an ultra!! Lastly I read the articles. I have no idea why I do this but it has become a very comfortable habit. Anyway, back to balance. I read an article last night on BREAKING ALL OF THE RULES OF RUNNING.
You know, going against the whole balance a training plan with real life. OUAL may be on to something with her no-train training plan!
It discusses stretching, strides, structure, long runs, pace, rest, strength training, cross-training, mileage increase, shoes and effort. Although I question subing out cross-training and just running all of the time (especially for those who easily get injured) I took away a LOT of good info from this article.
I recommend reading it and you can do so by clicking AQUI (oh, you didn’t know I am bilingual?)
Yes I have more than just VEGAS on the schedule. It’s just easy to focus on that race in particular as it’s the only marathon on the schedule through the end of 2011. Interested in joining me in some fun? Here is what I am registered for in the upcoming months:
The rest of the schedule is TBD
Anyone running any of theses races with me?!?!
