If you’ve ever looked at your running shoes gathering dust at your front door and thought ‘I don’t have the energy for a workout right now’ then this post is for you.
If you’ve ever watched other people in your life exercise regularly and thought ‘how on earth do they have the time?’ then this post is for you.
Are you thinking of returning to running this spring? Perhaps you’ve been on hiatus from impact exercise since giving birth or experiencing an injury.
If running is on your list of spring plans, you’ll definitely want to include at least a few weeks of core and lower body stability and strength work before you head out on the roads and trails.
Our hips are the base of our core. Many of the muscles that support our torso originate in our hip girdle, so it’s paramount to have a strong, supportive base of control in our hips. My favourite tool for healthy hips are what I call ‘smarter strength’ exercises. These are moves to engage varying muscles of the hips in a functional way.
Every week I play the same mental game. Will I food prep, or won’t I? Having a few weekly food prep staples is key in me actually completing the task of food prepping. Keeping the overall mental energy low by picking a couple of these go-to recipes week after week makes it so. much. easier…
Learning to craft the ideal post workout meal is an art and a science. We want a blend of complete protein and starchy carbohydrates, but even more than that, we want something flavourful and filling that refuels our muscles and satisfies our taste buds.
Motivation; it’s the holy grail of a regular exercise routine, right? Wrong! Wishing that we were more motivated to workout or feeling frustrated that others are just more motivated than we are is a waste of our time and energy.
