    Motivation Monday: Workout Planning

    Happy Monday everyone! This past week and weekend was absolutely crazy! I was working Dallas Market at the World Trade Center and it flew by. I’m not used to working like that! Standing for ten hours a day was a complete shock to my body, generally sitting at a desk all day. With a massage from my wonderful boyfriend and some yoga stretches I was back to normal. Now I am laying on the couch with my wine trying to figure out a new workout plan to follow for the next few months before I decide on the next race to start training for. (Pittsburgh, Chicago, New York, so many options!) I have been doing a lot of research on programs and here are my options:

  • Garmin Forerunner: Motivation Monday

    Happy Monday! Today I’m talking about my fun new gadget, the Garmin Forerunner. I got it in February for my birthday, but wanted to use it and really see how I liked it before posting about it, but let me tell you, it’s awesome. It’s one-thousand times better than using my giant iPhone that ran the entire length of my bicep. It usually slipped around because I could never get it comfortably tight enough to stay. Now, I use my watch and my little iPod shuffle and run in populated areas. Side note: Safety is definitely important when running alone, so if I do choose to run at a weird time and/or without my dogs I do usually bring my phone.

  • 30 Day Challenge

    Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but although I was dreading going back to work, I was definitely ready to get back into a routine. That includes a new workout routine. Now that I don’t have a marathon to train for I need a new challenge that will force me to be active and fit (aside from my dogs). I realized that my body was a bit unbalanced since I focused most of my marathon training on running and biking (with a little bit of tennis), I didn’t do much for my arms or abs. So my challenge was easy, find a couple arms and abs workouts that will be easy for me to work in and not hate to do. Naturally I turned to Pinterest and found some great 30 day challenges that I plan to implement. Day 1, check! By the way, this is NOT my New Year’s Resolution, I am fundamentally against them. If you want to do something, do it, if you want to change something, change it. No procrastinating, and no excuses!

  • Run It For The Jewelry

    I started the Run Dallas Race Series all the way back when I signed up for the Dallas Marathon. It was comprised of three 5ks put on by Dallas sports teams, ending with the Dallas Marathon. Because, why just do a marathon?
