Another Good Week… If You Like To Run (July 14 – 20)

Last week was another good week for running, and since everyone seemed to enjoy last week’s workout recap, I’m going to make it a weekly event! Monday I almost always rest from cardio on Mondays, but try to get a good weight lifting session and core workout completed on my non-cardio day.  After about 30 […]

Would You Rather…

Cori over at OliveToRun seriously has some of the cutest ideas, and her survey series is one of my favorites.  I’ve taken the liberty to pick my favorite questions from her series and answer them below… 1.  Would you rather…  Itch constantly or sneeze constantly as you’re running? I have heat-induced hives so on some […]

Cruiser Geese

My morning started with a three-mile run/walk with a client who wants to become a runner.  Our current routine is to alternate running and walking in half-mile segments.  After three miles we return to my house to do a little core work and stretching, and then she’s on her way. As soon as my client […]

But first, I want to talk about the benefits of being in a running group.   Benefits of running with a group: Knowing others are waiting for you, keeps you accountable! It’s safer […]
