3 Tips For Cross Training

A common mistake I see many people make is that they don’t cross-train. I get it; it’s not fun, but it’s super important. For example, if you’re a runner, you obviously need strong legs, but you also need a strong core, strong glutes, and even strong arms. Which is why even though running is great, it shouldn’t be all that you do. Here are my three tips for cross-training without spending hours in the gym.

5 Tips to Build Up Your Stamina

Recently I’ve been trying to build my stamina back up, and so far… it’s been pretty easy. A challenge of course, but compared to past years of returning post-injury, it hasn’t been as hard.

Hey, lovelies, happy National Nap Day! Sorta… It’s the 14th, but we’re celebrating it early because we’re rebels, and that’s what rebels do.

Anyway, napping has a lot of benefits, and not just benefits that your grandparents used to tell you that were pretty much lies, but actual benefits. Which is what we’re talking about today.

Why I Didn’t Exercise For a Month

In the event, you think you misread the title, or I messed up when typing it… the title is correct, I went an entire month without exercising. Not because I was injured, not because I was dealing with any ailments, not because I was sick. I did it on my terms. Now before you call a psychiatrist, let me explain. I spent most of 2015 injured, and I just needed a small break, but I learned something from my break. That despite not working out, it made me a better runner. Here’s the full story as to why I didn’t exercise for a month.
