I love to run.
I feel like it's a drug and I can't wait to get my next fix.
Sprinting up hills makes my day ;)
I'd like to think I'm tough as nails, but don't we all?
Right now I'm on a marathon kick, I'm always looking for some kind of race. Recently I've gotten into triathlons, that's what I'll be chasing next.
Chrissie Wellington and Kara Goucher are my heroes <3
After a year of injuries in 2011 and finally recovering, I decided to take the leap and become a Personal Trainer. There's nothing more important to me than fitness and health. I would love nothing more than to achieve my goals and help others reach their maximum potential and achieve theirs as well.
My ultamite goal is to do an Ironman.
I want to follow you guys!
The Half-Marathon is in 6 weeks and I’ve gone running once the past 3 weeks.
I was planning on going for a run this morning, but when I woke up my hamstring was really hurting so I decided not to put it through more abuse =/ The sad thing is I don’t even know how I hurt my hamstring. All I know is I was on a 12 mile run and half was through I started feeling pain in it then all of a sudden it was SO tight, the pain got a million times sharper and worse, then all of a sudden I was on the ground and I could barely walk normal let alone run.
I’ve been taking a ton of vitamins, pain killers, been icing it, doing an IFC unit treatment, and elevating it, but I still feel like I’m not making an adequate amount of progress. It used to hurt to touch my toes and now I can do that pain free, which does show progress, but I still can’t run.
I was hoping to wean back into running this week.
Anyone have an idea to help me?
