Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to the best Dad in the whole world! It is actually because of my Dad that I got into running and racing. It is because of him that I enjoy running and eating healthy!

As you might have noticed I haven’t been around all that much, I blame school (which will be done very soon). Until school is over I will be posting when I can, I never realized that trying to cram four months of school into two months is rather intense and stressful.

I deal with this stress by running daily and walking a lot, I also have been doing a lot of core and weight workouts while watching Say Yes To The Dress while PB works in the hospital for his nursing clinical, hahaha! (What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him).

Until next time!

Happy Running!

What Have I Been Reading?

Here are some links to blog posts and a video that I have been loving this week! From this I think you can figure out that I want to do some more core exercises and stretching after running.

– A different hamstring stretch from FitSugar, I know I need to do this more than I do often so I am not unintentionally shortening my stride due to tight hamstrings

Jill wrote a great post last week, Get Stronger Run Better, about the importance of strength training in addition to running, she uses body weight exercises: push-ups, squats, lunges, alternating Ts, and planks (repeat 2-3 times). I love push-ups and planks, but reading this post reminded me that I need to do a little more

Caitlin addressed the idea of how trying to be perfect is an addiction and the guilt we feel when we cannot achieve said perfection in this post. I know I took a lot away from this post, I think it really sank in when a teacher asked me if I am a perfectionist and I immediately answered “Yes!”…I think I need to re-read the post

Crunchless Ab Exercises count me in! I love the FitSugar and have been reading their stuff for many years now

– I love these post run stretches! Thanks Flexible Warrior!

Happy Running!
