But I really don’t have a choice. I took yesterday off from exercise completely, and Tuesday I did the elliptical, so I haven’t run since Monday. But after I did run on Monday, I forgot something crucial—icing my shins. So they have hurt ever since then, and probably will until I loosen up those muscles… Continue reading I don’t want to run today
I said that once and someone said to me, “You take steroids?” No! I sometimes do juice fasts. They usually only last for two meals, or it’s just a one-off thing. Take last night for example. I got home from the gym around 7 p.m. For some reason, the workout KILLED me. I think I’m… Continue reading I’m juicing

Apparently, when an out-of-shape person with old tumbling and cheering injuries decides to try and become a runner in the dead of winter on frozen pavement, it doesn't fare well for the shins. I learned this the hard way last winter. Even though I took it slow, it was still too much. I have old… Continue reading Shin splints can take a hike
I bought these last year when I decided to try and be a runner. Aside from the shoes, I didn't go about it the right way, and it resulted in a long stint in physical therapy, so these babies are basically brand new. Of course, they wouldn't be complete without my Aetrex Lynco Sport Series… Continue reading My running shoes
