Yoga With A Foot Injury

Don't do it. End of blog. I'm kidding, to a degree. Doing yoga with any sort of injury or pain is a gamble. Of course, I'm really not one to talk but I'm working on it. I've also learned the hard way that practicing yoga with a foot injury might not be the best idea.… Continue reading Yoga With A Foot Injury

Running In Spring

Oh boy! Spring is right around the corner. According to my phone, 40 degree weather is creeping in tomorrow and it looks like it's going to stick around for more than a day. Pretty exciting right? What's more exciting is that it'll be easier to run outdoors again! I'm an outdoor runner through and through… Continue reading Running In Spring

Stretching Is Hard

When we think of stretching, we think of flexibility and flexible people. We think about an easy workout. We might not even think of a workout at all. We might even think about old people or dancers. We do know one thing: we should be doing it. That doesn't mean that we actually stretch consistently… Continue reading Stretching Is Hard

Running Is Boring

Last week I wrote about how yoga is boring but this week, we're going to look at how running is boring. Or, at least how people tend to think running is boring. News flash, I refuse to think it is. To be fair, I am not saying treadmill running is exciting. Or interesting. It feels like nothing other… Continue reading Running Is Boring

Appreciating Life

...is something we don't do. Be honest. You don't appreciate the life in your veins the way you should. It's because you're probably healthy. Happy (ish). Able to do day to day activities. You can eat. Go to the bathroom. Sleep. Breathe. And it's because we are functional that we don't appreciate our life. We… Continue reading Appreciating Life

I settled on a slow flow challenge. What's mentally harder than… Continue reading Slowing Down

We've only got a few days before we're elbow deep in the food of this seasonal holiday. How exciting!

Running, What I Mean When I Say, Yoga

“I Can’t Workout”

Okay, so we've covered similar threads on this before, right? Right. But this one is going to be pain specific...meaning I'm going to be talking about physical pain, injury, and teaching yourself how to stop. So, why would we ever want to stop working out? I mean, we go through a lot of hassle to get… Continue reading “I Can’t Workout”

Cross-Training

Hello! I'm here to talk to you about that thing we know we should be doing but that we most likely aren't doing. Cross-training. And NO I am not talking about Crossfit...that thing that ends up in injury because form isn't the focus. Hopefully, we all know what cross-training is. If not, I'll give you the low… Continue reading Cross-Training
