Thanks for the support! February's been a busy month and while I haven't had much time to journal, I've been able to get in all of my planned workouts except one (date night with my husband!) Here's a brief summary of the past 3 weeks: Strength: Basic strength work 2-4 days/week. Each session consis...

Motion Is Life Return to Running 2012

Where did January go? First strength workout of the new plan. It sucks watching my husband take off for CrossFit in the early mornings while I work out at home, but on the bright side I save 40 min of commuting time and get to shower and eat breakfast at home instead of at the hospital! I'm sure all...

Monday 1/30 Day 1 towards the North Country Trail Marathon Easy endurance RUN 40 min, 3.5 miles Felt GREAT today! Best my hip has felt in weeks.

Sunday 1/29 REST DAY ... Sort of. One hour hike with the dogs (and while my older lab put himself to bed hours ago, the puppy still isn't tired!) and a home "spa day" comprised of a hot Epsom salt soak, foam roller, legs self-massage with arnica oil, and yin yoga-type stretching. So relaxi...

Saturday 1/28
REST DAY

Spent the day instead hiking with the dogs, watching "Running the Sahara" and "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" with my newly-vegan husband, and putting my coach's new plan into my calendar. Can't wait to get it started!!

Thanks Mini Forklift! I NEVER run with headphones, I much prefer the sounds of my footfalls, my breathing, the wind blowing through the trees, my dogs trotting along beside me, etc. I'm a nature girl!

Motion Is Life Return to Running 2012

@Mini Forklift - my race goals are constantly evolving (mainly due to work schedules and this recent injury). My goal for 2012 is to run my first marathon, and make it to the finish line injury-free. I hope to build on that in the long term with ultra running and/or ironman. At present my target mar...

Great news - I saw the ortho hip surgeon today and he encouraged me to continue to go the conservative route. I'm pain free 85-90% of the time, and no activity seems to make the pain worse (although I do occasionally have some pain when I run). Phew! This is exactly what I wanted to hear, especially...

Motion Is Life Return to Running 2012

@vivalasvegans - yes! As a matter of fact, today I am taking a much needed rest day (from formal exercise at least). I always try to listen to my body and allow it the time it needs to recover. As one of the CrossFit coaches likes to say, every once in awhile you need to take a day off and do nothin...
