Yesterday I went on my first run in over 6 months!  I felt like a school girl waitting to go on a first date.  A little scared.  A little nervous.  A little excited.  As I laced up my sneakers, I worried if the pain would return.  Was I really healed?  Had the all the months of physical therapy worked?

Many of us want to be more flexible but don't seem to find the time to do just that “stretching”. There are many forms of stretching,i.e static stretching, PNF stretching, dynamic stretching, myofascial release, just to name a few stretching modalities. Let's look at some of the questions that might present themselves:

'Find Your Inner Athlete, Discover A New Community.'
I haven't written a blog post in a while, partly because I've been busy, but also partly because I haven't felt drawn to any specific health/fitness topic in a while.  In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the cancellation of the NY Marathon, and the overwhelming response of the runners & other compassionate citizens, I felt compelled to share a few thoughts.

Went out for a jog today, just down one of the back country roads.  Although it is November and I live in the mountains, I was in a tank top an capri pants. Realizing this, I started thinking about all the snow we just got and how excited I am to ride my snowboard and skis, when I started to hear my feet pounding on the pavement.

I'm not sure of anything better to look at while running. The sky was blue and the mountains were white... they never cease to amaze me.It was cold, but I thought it would be a waste to sit inside all morning, so I opted for a morning jog through the snow. Being so excited about the snow and sunshine, I ALMOST went after my run a little ill prepared and therefore would like to share some tips on outdoor running in the winter.

Sarah's Fitness Journey
So last week I finally got back into my running streak. I ran 6 days. Not long, 2-4 miles and then one long run which came out to about 5 miles total. It was great, I was feeling great....until that last long run. Went running in my old sneakers, I knew I needed some new sneakers but I've been putting it off due to the whole not wanting to spend money thing. I figured I'm fine, it's really not that far and I've been doing really well with my strength training program as well.

I've told my friends and clients for years that if you want to maximize your work-out you should use interval training.  We no longer hold on to the belief that you should work-out at a low intensity to burn fat.  The bottom line is burning calories.  The best way to do this is to incorporate interval training in your workouts.  Interval training is when you work hard for a short amount of time (i.e. 1-2 minutes) and then work at a slightly slower pace to recover (i.e. 2-4 minutes).
