Since it is Workout Wednesday we wanted to highlight a few of the posts that encourage us to hit up the gym:
Jenn, the Comeback Momma, shared 5 effective treadmill workouts to help with weight loss. Even though we have referred to the treadmill as a dreadmill in the past we do know its benefits and variety is key!
Running with someone that is faster/stronger/better than you can cause a certain amount of fear. Will I be too slow? Can I keep up? What happens when I need to take a break? We absolutely LOVE Amanda’s post on her site Run to the Finish that talks about fearless running. Get brave. It will benefit you and your running partner.
The Veteran Runnah Harold talks about how sometimes you have to run slower to run faster. It seems like an oxymoron but you can improve your speed by taking your recovery runs down a notch and then pushing yourself to go faster on your faster runs. Try it!
In the spirit of all of this running talk we felt it was necessary to share a pinnable workout we saw this week from Fannetastic Food. We love a workout that provides a bit of a distraction from the sometimes mundane feeling of running. (Bonus: there is a lovely tuna pasta salad recipe in this post too!)
