Fit for a Run

The weather this morning was fit for a good run and I took advantage. I had a great 7.15 mile run. I haven’t run this distance in a while. My distance run was slow and steady. I picked up speed in the last three miles. I was conscious of my form with each step. Breathing in through my nose and out through my mouth. I kept my chest and shoulders up. I made sure my back stayed straight. My elbows I kept to my sides as I swung my arms back and forth. My grip was relaxed and my stomach was held in. I landed each step on the balls of my feet.

Regular cardiovascular exercise is important!

My Fast, Cheap, Easy or Fake

My Fast, Cheap, Easy, or Fake t-shirt reminded me to eat HEALthy after running 5.01 miles. http://www.cafepress.com/iampstore.1109992192nikerunning07072014

It felt good to finish my daily run and it felt even better to focus on my after run nutrition. I ate carbohydrates and protein foods within 45 minutes after my run. This reloaded my muscles with the basic nutrients and fluids I lost during my run. I wanted to speed up my recovery time and be ready for my next cardio exercise.

Always remember HEALthy nutrition should always be included with exercise.

PUSH through to HEALthy

There are times when I have to be persistent to make HEALTHy happen. When it comes to living a healthier life I have to sometimes push myself to achieve that lifetime goal. Today I was persistent to complete my cardio with a 3.27 mile #run on my #elliptical.

Always remember to be persistent, make HEALthy happen, and enjoy a healthier you.

nikerunning07042014I am feeling pretty good with my 5.12 mile run with the nikeplus app. It has been a while since I ran. It was a ‘feel good’ run. My goal was to run no less than 3.5 miles. Once I was close to 5 miles nothing could stop me. I thought healthy thoughts and I finished 5.12 miles.

Let nothing stand in your way to a ‘healthier’ you. Whatever your cardio choice, decide to ‘KeepItMoving’ and stay active.
