Whoops this is a little bit late as we are already more than a week into May! There has just been a flurry of activity that I haven’t found the few minutes I needed to finish this post! I know it is completely cliché of me but I honestly cannot believe how fast this year is going! Where has the… Read more »

Five Things I Love About Training with a Team!

      1 Comment on Five Things I Love About Training with a Team!

Disclaimer:  I wrote this post last week but didn’t manage to get it posted on Friday before we went away for the weekend 🙁 So while it is a little late and some of it is dated (clearly those who were on their way to Boston have already been there and raced the marathon) I still wanted to post it for… Read more »

Workout Wednesday: Pace Control

      No Comments on Workout Wednesday: Pace Control

Pace control. It is something that I find really challenging and find it takes a while of running consistently before I feel confident in my ability to measure my pace and effort.  Knowing my body well enough to know what pace I am running without even looking at my watch tends to be when I am pretty fit and running regularly… Read more »

Five Foods I am loving right now!

      5 Comments on Five Foods I am loving right now!

Food. So many foods to choose from! I have too many favourites it was really tough to choose just five 🙂 Having a genuine whole-hearted love and appreciation for food is such a big change from the kind of relationship I used to have with it.  For most of my adolescence/teenage/young adult years, I definitely struggled with a preoccupation of never feeling thin enough… Read more »

Hope you had an awesome Easter long weekend! I know I really appreciated having the time off – I was able to get some extra stuff done at home and just really practice this art of relaxing.  Taking the time to rest can actually make you stronger as it gives your muscles the chance to really rebuild. I am so excited… Read more »

      No Comments on Recipe: Super Easy Banana Muffins!

These banana muffins are seriously delicious! They can easily be made gluten free by simply swapping out the flour and vegan if you use a egg replacer.  The only fat comes from the optional chocolate chips and walnuts! They taste delicious, make a great snack when packing lunches, and freeze well! So, how do you make them? Here is the super… Read more »

Workout Wednesday: Do you pick things up and put them down?

Whoops! A workout Wednesday post on a Thursday! I’m sure you all know how it is when life gets busy and sometimes it is just hard to adult. Did the time change for daylight savings affect anyone else this week?  I didn’t think an hour could really have that kind of impact but I am definitely feeling it – especially… Read more »

Workout Wednesday: Onward and Upward!

      3 Comments on Workout Wednesday: Onward and Upward!

Just kidding spring is not coming as I over-zealously stated in my last Workout Wednesday post! While it was pretty nice last week, it has been super cold the last few days and I am so missing the Mexican sun this week! (We were lucky to be down there for a week at the end of February) Good news though, I… Read more »

Whew it has been a frustrating few months! Between little injuries and niggles then being sick last month I feel like I keep ‘starting over’ and I have to tell you it’s getting a little old 😉 Figuring out what works for you really is all part of the journey. I am actively changing my approach to training and have been… Read more »
