Re: Pittsburgh?

I'm in Carnegie, so farther south than you. Wexford just got a new Whole Foods, right? Or maybe a Giant Eagle Market District... I don't know, ha.

I tried Double Wide for the first time about a month ago--very yummy! I also want to try Eden. Have you been there, dlk1?

Re: Pittsburgh?

Awesome! What area do you live in?

And good luck with your converting :) I've convinced my boyfriend to (mostly) drink almond milk and drastically decrease his meat consumption! It took a while though, haha.

Re: Pittsburgh?

I grew up out near the airport (went to West Allegheny), but now I live in Carnegie. And yes, there aren't many vegans that I know of, but there are a few vegan/vegan-friendly restaurants!

Pittsburgh?

I figure this is a shot in the dark, but I'll try anyway... Is anyone on here in the Pittsburgh area? I'd love to find a training buddy!

Re: Woman Bodybuilding

I'm also thinking about starting to train for a competition, but I'm interested in a bikini competition. That being said, can anyone offer any advice? Should I get a coach? Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Carley's Training Journal

I ran 10 miles in 1:32! Not the fastest pace, but the farthest distance I've ever gone! And foam rolling afterward felt FANTASTIC!

I also drank a protein smoothie before my run and a protein shake after, and I'm going to yoga tomorrow night to help keep my muscles loose.

Re: Carley's Training Journal

Thanks, Amanda--same to you! I really appreciate all of your help, advice and support! Also, I forgot to tell you earlier... I signed up for the Pittsburgh half marathon (I think you knew that, though) and a Warrior Dash in June! I'm really excited for both :) I bought some spirulina to try today, t...

Re: Carley's Training Journal

Amanda -- I've used a foam roller a few times, but I don't have one myself. I need to invest in one! It totally killed my hips when I used it though; I don't know if it's because it was because I was sore or my hips were weak. How much do foam rollers usually cost? Where can I get one? Amazon? Dylan...

Re: Carley's Training Journal

Thanks, Amanda! That's the farthest I've ever run, so I was pretty happy with it. I was definitely feeling it afterward, though! My hips (mostly my left, actually) were killing me! I did some yoga tonight to try to help with the soreness. I'm trying to increase my calories on long run days! Sometime...

Re: Carley's Training Journal

It was raining all day today, so I decided to do Insanity again. Tonight's workout was more like power yoga, so it was a nice change! I also made my protein shake with coconut milk instead of almond milk today... I wanted to try something new, but the protein powder dissolves better in almond milk! ...

Re: Carley's Training Journal

I've only done two days of it, and I'm not following the 60-day plan--just jumping in with my boyfriend when I'm not running or taking a day off. That being said... IT'S HARD! Yesterday's workout was a 10 minute warm-up (though I was "warmed up" after about five minutes), five minutes of s...
