I love it when my clients try something new.  When they set a goal and go for it!  Their excitement and enthusiasm is equal to that of a drug.  It makes me want to set a loftier goal and go after it.  Often, like a honeymoon, that enthusiasm wanes.  The long hours of training.  The time and monetary investment.  The early mornings or denied nights out so you can achieve your goal.  They can take their tole.  Its hard to do without or deny pleasures for a goal that seems so far off.

YOLO is an acronym for "You Only Live Once". It was originally coined over 100 years ago but in recent times it has been used by the younger generations as an excuse for stupid and reckless behavior. The Washington Post and The Huffington Post describe it as the "newest acronym you'll love to hate". YOLO is similar to carpe diem or memento mori, it implies that one should enjoy life, even if that entails taking risks.

 Runners need strong hips to support the movement of their feet, ankles, and knees. Strengthening this joint can cure a host of running injuries.

ARTICLE OF THE WEEK: Why Am I Not Losing Weight With Running? Many people start running to lose weight, and it makes sense - running burns a lot of calories (an average of about 100 calories per mile), so you would think that would lead to weight loss. However, some new runners find that they don't lose weight and some even gain weight. Others may lose a few pounds and then hit a weight loss wall. There's no simple answer here because there could be a few things going on. First, it could be you're eating more calories than you need.

 Over the years I have seen quite a few runners find their way into the yoga studio. Typically the reason cited is “I'm so tight!”. Stretching muscles tight places is a benefit a runner can certainly get from yoga. I do think there are some others as well. I also think it is useful to think about what kind of practice, and what sort of asana work might best serve the runner's needs.

Yesterday was a challenging day for me. I set the bar high for myself with a 3 mile hill repeat run followed by a 90 minute hot yoga class. Twice I found myself right on the edge. I felt like I had no more to give, and slightly sick, but I pulled something from somewhere and finished the workouts. By the end of the yoga class I was limping in, but I finished, and I felt so accomplished it's not even funny.

Everyone has stress, it's a natural occurrence in nature, it's what makes things change and happen, its what gives us that push to go above and beyond what we would normally do. In certain times of your life you'll find that the amount of stress increases due to outside sources, internal pressure, and various other things that are going on in the semi organized chaos that we call life. How you handle the excess stress can make all the difference when it comes to physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.

My very first half marathon is in October, it's happening... I already paid for it! I've been following a training plan for my running, and have been doing pretty well. I've built up to 10 miles for my long runs. The shorter runs have been mainly on the treadmill due to the August heat, but that heat wave broke and the weather has been much more conducive to running outside. I will be making sure to keep the hills in my planning so once a week I go visit my parent's house to "borrow" their hills (my current location is pretty flat...
