First, let me congratulate the winners of the Big Banjees Wrist Wallet GIVEAWAY:
Thank you to everyone who entered. If you didn't win, STAY TUNED. I have another giveaway coming up!
Last week was all about recovery. Time to take a little break, let my legs recuperate, and figure out what's causing the pain in my a$$!
#TrainingTruths: Active Release Therapy hurts so good.
#TrainingTruths: Rest days are more important than we realize.
After the challenging half marathon on Sunday, I acknowledged that I have been running a lot (maybe Trainer Brian helped with this). Since school was closed on Tuesday for the election, I took advantage of having the day off and kept the running shoes off as well.
#TrainingTruths: Treadmill runs are not as bad when you have a workout plan.
Cold and rainy weather didn't sound fun, so I jumped on the 'mill and followed a Sing-along Run workout recommended by Dimity in the Another Mother Runner November newsletter. This workout allowed me to keep things nice and easy; a great workout for recovery week.
#TrainingTruths: It is so much easier to run in the cold weather.
I like to run with temperatures in the 30s. Just recently I learned that the colder the weather, the less heat stress on the body. Since my body isn't working as hard, the running feels easier.
#TrainingTruths is not just about me. We all like to see what everyone else is doing and use that information to assess ourselves. It's not judgement. It's a way to share and learn and make changes when necessary.
To participate all you have to do is share your #TrainingTruths:
