Route 66 Marathon Training Week 4

I guess I would say I am back into the swing of things with training after being sick for a while. However, my cough is still lingering and it definitely impacted my race on Saturday (more on that tomorrow). Here is how the rest of the week looked: Monday: 5 miles easy, hip and core exercises […]

Using Self-Myofascial Release Strategically to Prevent Injury

If you have visited my blog before, chances are you have read that I incorporate foam rolling into my training regime. Also known as self-myofascial release, foam rolling and other self-massage techniques help to reduce soreness and improve range of motion, which in turn can help to prevent injuries and allow for shorter recovery periods […]

Thinking Out Loud: Catching Up

In the midst of my blogging break last week, I missed my two-year blogiversary! I think it was way more exciting to reach the one year mark. I wrote a whole post about it here! I also shared this on instagram, but haven’t mentioned it on the blog yet. Daily Mile has a new coaching […]

Comfort Foods on a Rest Day

Sunday was a rest day and I was still not feeling well, and didn’t seem to have much of an appetite. Usually I am really hungry the day after a long run, so this was kind of strange. Not sure if maybe I did a good job of refueling on Saturday so my body had regulated […]

Develop Your Fitness Routine to Stay Consistent and Motivated

People often ask me how I can work out almost every day, eat well, and live an overall healthy lifestyle without getting bored or overwhelmed, or just giving up altogether. Part of it may be my Type A personality that thrives off routine and consistency. Another part is the enjoyment I find in exercise and […]

Route 66 Marathon Training Week 3

Believe it or not, I am on day 19 of being sick. It is feeling like the slowest recovery process ever- the first week was a terribly sore throat, then it was a week of coughing, and now it’s all head congestion/sneezing. Physically, I feel much better than I did the first week. I have […]

Route 66 Marathon Training Weeks 1&2

Hi there! After the longest blogging break I’ve taken in a while, I’m back. Sort of. I’ll probably be somewhat sporadic this week as I have a bunch of other things going on, along with trying to catch up on life after vacation. Thanks again to Meredith and Laura for guest posting while I was […]

Should Runners Take Ice Baths? {Guest Post}

As promised, today I have another guest post to share with you all! Laura blogs over at This Runner’s Recipes and is talking today about ice baths.

Trader Joe’s Favorites For Runners {Guest Post}

My apologies for falling off the grid since last week, but between attending a conference, getting sick, and leaving for vacation, blogging was the last thing on my mind. Lucky enough, I had already asked a couple of my favorite bloggers to help me out this week while I am away! Today I have a […]

Thinking Out Loud 8/6/15

Happy Thursday everyone! I guess I would say this week is moving right along, although today and tomorrow will likely drag because I will be stuck sitting in a  conference all day. But it’s all good because then on Saturday I head to the beach! As usual I’ll be thinking out loud with Amanda today… […]
