Yoga For Cyclists Turns Out to Be Yoga for Runners Too!

I’m always looking for new yoga videos to supplement my running – postures that get into my back, hips, hamstrings and calves. I especially love having them in my repertoire for races, always the night before a race or long training run, never the morning of (It’s hard enough for me to get out the […]

New Year, Clean Slate, New Beginnings

Welcome to 2018! Whether you make resolutions, intentions, or simply nurse a hangover the first 24 hours, here we are! I don’t set resolutions anymore, and I like the idea of intentions, but the jargon rubs me the wrong way. Goals! That’s what I set! This year I would like to run 1000 miles, and […]

Workout of the Day!

I’ve been feeling really blah this week; the daily grind + the end of a training cycle have me in a mood that only wants to come home, eat everything in sight and fall asleep watching TV. Today is my day off work, and I want it to be as productive as possible, while still […]

Arms, Arms, Arms!

Running is so great and I love it, but it’s not the be all, end all of my fitness routine. It wasn’t even what I started with when I began working out again. I went straight to yoga, pilates and arm workouts, until I felt like I had built up enough strength, endurance, and stamina […]

Britney’s Running Playlist (and now yours too)!

Since my teen years, I’ve been running off and on. It hasn’t been until recently that I’ve upped the distance past 5 miles, and stuck with it long term. In high school I was on the swim team, and on weekends I’d work out at the gym with my dad, using the treadmill or stair-stepper, plus weight […]
