Been browsing the web, and one great link leads to another and so on, and you come across some super duper information!
Oh my! I got lots of great running ideas from this post from Men’s Health Magazine!
I think I’m going to try the ladder on my next run! And I love the easy-hard principle. I think active recovery and interval training are awesome!
And I also like the Plan A and Plan B thing. I find myself doing that sometimes anyway: plan to go out for a short run, feel great, so stay out longer. I always tell my clients to listen to their bodies. Your body will tell you when it wants more, or when it’s time to rest.
I’ve really started to love running, so I’m looking forward to doing it better and faster!
I wonder why men’s fitness magazines seem to have better information than women’s? Men’s Health Magazine has a whole section on Triathlon! I can’t find anything like this on Oxygen or Women’s Health Magazine, or even on one of my favourites, Girl Get Strong. I suppose that the majority of female exercises are exercising for health and weight loss, not performance or competition, but I wonder if they are missing out on a target market here? These ones are sometimes a little too fluffy.
I think the only magazine that stands out against this trend is UltraFit Magazine. I love this magazine! Their web page is pretty lacking, but I can assure you the magazine is JAM PACKED with uber-fit ideas! Stuff well beyond me, but hey, they’re not fluffy!
Anyway, those are some of the sites I’ve been busy looking at. Maybe you’ll enjoy some of them too?
