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.

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 […]read more
I’m three days away from the Rock’N Roll San Diego half, and only slightly freaking out. I basically had a nervous break-down two nights ago, and feeling much better since writing it all out. MUCH BETTER, NOT LYING AT ALL. Anyway, been working on my hydration, carb loading, sleeping, and tonight I got to stretching. […]read more
