BRF Training Week 16…2 more to go!

This was one of those weeks where I really don’t know what I would do without running. It kept me sane throughout a stressful week and was the only consistency I could count on. Here’s how it went: Weekly Recap: Sunday 9/22: Yoga in the park Monday 9/23: 5.29 miles easy (average pace 8:36) Core […]

My Morning Running Routine

Most non-runners cannot comprehend the thought of waking up at 5am to go running before work. Even some runners have a tough time with it. I guess I am lucky because waking up early has always been pretty easy for me (well, not so much in high school or college, but after that). I thought […]

Yoga, Meal Planning, and BRF Training Week 15

This morning started out with some waterfront yoga at Baltimore’s inner harbor. Baltimore’s  Waterfront Parternship and Charm City Yoga put on a series of fitness events during the summer and fall (and probably other seasons but I have just heard of this one). It was the perfect morning for outdoor yoga and I felt like […]

Garmin just came out with 2 new watches that have some really cool features, but they’re kind of pricey! Saucony Run Lux Shorts I have two pairs of these. They’re comfortable, have a nice pocket […]

Health and Nutrition for Runners

I have seen my chiropractor twice this week for some of the running issues I have been having. On Monday he determined the pain in my hip was coming from my back. He did some traction and recommended I ice my back, and said I could run if I felt ok. It’s been feeling gradually […]

Labor Day Weekend (Sangria, Speed Work, and Pizza)

As I said in my last post, I spent Saturday morning running 20 miles. The rest of the day we relaxed, went to church, and made dinner in the crock pot. On Sunday I decided to do an easy shake out run. I ended up doing 5 miles and felt pretty good. After grocery shopping […]

20 miles and BRF Training Week 12

Last week I wrote about my quad/hip being tight, so my mileage went down a bit last week. I didn’t run on Monday and cut other runs that week short. I focused on stretching and foam rolling, and added in some yoga. I also made sure to keep up with my core strength workouts.  These […]
