Workout Of the Day!

March 15, 2017   /   byrunningwhilevegan  / Categories :  Running, Uncategorized, yoga

LA marathon 2017 is 5 days away and I’m as prepared as I can be! Now I’m just trying to work on stretching, nutrition and hydration. I don’t know what anything over 18 miles is going to feel like, and I like the mystery. The only thing I’m worried about is hitting the wall, which in the past has come from starting a run too fast, or with an empty stomach.

Tomorrow I have an eight mile training run with BlacklistLA, and it’s probably going to be my last run before the marathon Sunday. To get prepared for both tomorrow’s run and the marathon, I did Yoga With Adriene’s 6 Minute Yoga for Hips and her Yoga For a Rainy Day (also great hip stretches!). I also wanted to get an arm workout in, so I added Tone It Up’s Bikini Arms to my routine today (with 5lb weights). And now it’s time to get rested, which is sometimes the most challenging part for me.

Back in December, Mike and I moved to the Inland Empire from Los Angeles, or more specifically, Santa Monica. Of course I get asked why we would leave, but the truth is, we had no choice. I moved in with Mike in July, and shortly after that his building was sold, and we were asked […]
