I have an awesome 10 week half marathon training plan that is perfect for newbies who are short on time! Printable and customizable, too!
Hey friends! Let’s chat about how my 10 week half marathon training plan went. Spoiler alert: it did not go as planned.
I had a blast on my last minute trip to Chicago with my blend, Katie for a fun Laughing Cow Cheese event! Here are some things to do in Chicago!
There’s this fad nowadays in the fitness and running industry involving compression gear, more specifically, compression socks. But are they just fashionable or do they really serve a purpose?
It’s been about a month since I finished my second half marathon, so I thought I may as well do a little recap. Truthfully I don’t have any words of wisdom like I thought I would. Just some thoughts.
Let’s dig into proper fueling for races since this topic is on my mind (my half-marathon is in two days!!) and it’s Did You Know Friday!
This healthy veggie burger packs a punch of nutrients including tons of fiber into one tasty package. I thought this recipe was so interesting since one of the main ingredients is the leftover pulp from your juicing excursions. Of course you don’t need to have juice pulp…it would just add some nice flavor and fiber. Woot.
Today’s Did You Know Friday (<-find out more here) topic is Epsom salt baths. I’m mostly going to discuss the healing benefits for sore muscles, but I want to dig into a little bit of the other uses because there are many!
I had the privilege of racing with sister Courtney at her first ever 10K race: The Nebraska Leprechaun Chase 10K. It’s a super fun race, but definitely not for those of us who don’t train very well.
We are all pressed for time these days, aren’t we? It doesn’t matter your situation, it’s much easier to talk yourself into a 10 minute workout at home than heading to the gym for an hour!
Remember like two years ago when I did Monday Moves? Welp, we are bringing it back!
Check out these awesome last minute items that will be perfect for your favorite foodie or fitness enthusiast.
There are so many things to be thankful for but these are 5 of them.
I got to go back to Nebraska a couple of weeks ago like I talked about in my Thin Mint Cookie Pie post! I feel like we go back a lot..maybe a lot more than most people who live away from home do. I think both Dave and I miss our family a whole lot and can’t wait to move back. I wanted to share a little recap to a. show you all my yummy eats, b. show you some Valas Pumpkin Patch (and cute nephew) pictures and lastly c. brag about my run.
I will start out by saying I’ve only done two of these runs, but they were both with different companies, different people and different states, so I feel like all of those different variables helps round out my experiences. Meaning, I didn’t just do one run and base my opinions on that one run that could have been good or bad just depending on the day/people/place.
I’ve never done a serious competitive mud run like the Tough Mudder, which from what I’ve heard are much different than the fun runs I’ve done, so I want to make sure it’s clear that I’m talking about non-competitive fun mud runs.
Fall is one of those times where the weather is quite unpredictable. It might be 60 degrees but super windy (like it was in Nebraska for my 7 mile run-walk), or it might even be in the 40s and sunny.
It could even be snowing. I mean, this is Minnesota.
My solution: layers.
I know for a fact that I will have a couple of layers on for my upcoming race (half of my costume is that zebra running jacket!). I’m going to share with you some factors to take into account as well as some of my favorite Target® C9 running pieces.
I’m totally fine with sharing the struggles that go on in my life or having a negative opinion on something. I think that is necessary to having a genuine blog. Some things in life are good and some are bad, right?
The thing is, I don’t want my little space on the internet to be a total downer. There is so much in life to be happy about and I want to start high lighting those things every once in awhile. I know it benefits me to look on the positive side of things and hopefully it will remind you of the happy things in your life as well!
