I gotta get myself back into running shape before marathon training starts.
In the short term I want to be able to do my pre-training runs non-stop.That shouldn’t be hard considering they’re short runs but my lungs are just being passive-aggressive bitches right now.
With that said, I need to make sure I lace up the Asics after work and put a few miles on them. That definitely interferes with my drinking schedule but sacrifices must be made right?
Learn this great leg exercise called Duck Walks. It increases leg strength very quickly when performed regularly.
Just found out these exist. I want to incorporate them into my run training but I’m a little worried about how it’ll wear on the knees.
Has anybody used them? Benefits? Downside?

I know it’s kind of ironic but I HATE hills! I’m actually looking forward to trying out these tips on my next hill run though.
Completed my first run with my MotoACTV. I’m pretty happy with this little gadget.
The run was tougher than it should have been. Too much time off and still a little chest congestion. I gotta kick some ass on Friday. Starting with my own.
pre training starts this week and that means I should really set an official “bedtime” for myself.
that said I have about twelve browser tabs opened, about to open two more, have a butt load of laundry to do, need to watch true blood and dominion and I’m a little hungry. and it’s almost 10:30.
it’s safe to say that “bedtimes” are a goal for another day.
So my buddy got me a MotoActv to help me train for the next L.A. marathon. Kinda sad to leave my endomondo behind but the MotoActv is pretty bad ass!
Here’s how to take a step back and change your training plan for the better
If your routine is getting a little stagnant this could help.
I did some of that yoga stuff today and my body is not happy with me right now.
On a semi-related note, I couldn’t keep up with the 5x5 program this week so it looks like I have to restart it next week.
Also, today is the last day of intake tracking! I cannot wait to be done with this ritual and I’m actually looking forward to analyzing the results.
And if you took the time to read this then *high five* and have a great weekend!
Sports are interesting in the fact that some of the people who are best at coaching are those who have never competed at a high level. You’ll find a fair amount of great coaches as managers weren’t great competitors, and may have never competed themselves.
Perfect example: Greg Jackson. Never had a profession MMA fight in his life, yet he’s the best coach + strategist the UFC has ever seen.
Reblogging for everyone who ever said that I didn’t “look like” I knew what I was talking about.
