While Jen takes care of personal matters, Laura Frey steps in and joins Heather to discuss the ins-and-outs of creating a workout space at home. As we’ve adapted to getting it done with minimal resources, Heather and Laura start with the basics for a home gym (aka Pain Cave) — hint…you don’t need much — and work all the way up to their most coveted out of reach equipment.
2020 Wishlists!! Heather and Jen really had trouble figuring out what to put on our Holiday and Birthday lists for this year, but ultimately came up with some useful ideas for this really weird year. This is an extensive list, with links to the Top 10 Must Haves over on our Podcast Facebook Group, so please join us over there!
It’s another LIVE RACE! This time, Jen recounts her experience with the Wallis Sands Half Marathon — a special treat to run with friends! She discusses the details of how this event was able to happen safely, and how it was different from her experience at the same event last year.
In this episode, Heather and Jen sit down with Registered Dietician and Race Announcer Carissa Galloway. While they do wax a bit nostalgic about runDisney, they dive into run fueling strategies for running and racing.
In this, a technically persnickety episode, Heather and Jen honor the World Health Organization’s World Mental Health Day. Reaching out to the Podcast Facebook Group, they share different strategies of keeping mental health in check. From staying off of Social Media to mixing up a workout, we are finding many coping strategies as we continue to navigate through this pandemic. Thank you for submitting your comments, and for your continued support of this podcast.
Heather ran a live race! So for the first time since January, Heather and Jen talk Race Recap for the All Out Multicourse Productions Fall Fest Event!
Episode 73: Follow up conversation; race t-shirts, body confidence, and Congratulating Boston Finishers!
In Episode 72, we uncovered lots of strong emotions and provoked some great discussion on our Podcast Facebook Group. We thought in this episode, we would respond to some of those thoughts and feelings with more of our own, but really, we must congratulate those who went out for the Boston Marathon this month, as well as all of you who are pushing out the boundaries of your comfort zone by challenging yourself in your own way.
Have you ever heard, “Running is bad for your knees,” or “Wait, you don’t look like a runner?”
Don’t worry, we have too. Heather and Jen dive into some common running myths, and then inadvertently peel back the layers of the human psyche…not really, but we had some deep thoughts.
How good are you about getting your strength training in? Be honest. In this episode, we talk about Injury-proofing your running body with Nick Kafker, co-creator of the Recover App and host of the Run Healthy Podcast.
Heather and Jen chat and catch up with each other on recent developments. While we are still dealing with coronavirus threats, we must remember that other parts of life are still important. Our health remains high priority, which means taking care of ourselves in every way possible.
We welcome back our dear friend, Karen Blankenship to discuss her new coaching element — Nutrition. Some of us are dealing with the Covid-19 (on the scale), and Karen sheds some light on how to get and stay motivated around our running and eating habits.
As we start to see races open back up and trickle back onto the calendar (believe me, they are out there), it is important to remember to keep planning out your upcoming events in a smart and safe way. While we are all missing those start lines, and want to register for all the races, having a plan for the next few years will help you stay focused.
