Running & Workouts (Running Round Up June 2017)


Every six months or so I round up the latest running-related posts I’ve written for a few reasons.

First, going back to see what I’ve written helps me to determine what I haven’t talked about in while, what I’ve already covered and what is still needed to be shared.

Second, it’s possible someone missed a really good running discussion or workout so I think it’s important that I  share it again!

After reviewing the last few months of the blog, I noticed a lack of new running workouts created by me.

How can this be? Hopefully this summer I come up with a new running workout or two for us!

60 minute treadmill workout – This is a great treadmill workout to try if you are bored inside and not sure how to mix things up. Trust me, you will feel it!

60 Min Speed Interval Treadmill Workout / The Cookie ChRUNicles

Don’t Hate The Treadmill (Treadmill Workout Roundup) – We all go through phases with the treadmill, some of us more than others.

This post rounds up a great collection of treadmill workouts along with ways to make the treadmill work for you.

There's no reason to hate the treadmill! Check out this round up of treadmill inspiring posts and workouts!

While I didn’t create a ton of running workouts, I did a lot of writing about running.

It’s Okay To Not Sign Up For A Race  – Social media makes it seem like everyone is running races all of the time. That’s not true and not necessary if it’s not what you want to do.

Sometimes We Need To Run on Autopilot  –Getting out there to run isn’t always easy.

Even People Like Me Want To Sleep In Sometimes –  It can be hard to get out of bed, even for people like me!

Are Bad Runs Really Bad Runs? – I really don’t think there’s such a thing as a bad run.

Not Your Average Runner – I often do things my way which can sometimes be considered different from the stereotypical runner.

5 Basic Tips For Running Next Half Marathon – I kept these 5 basic tips in mind even for my 10 mile race last month. It really doesn’t matter the race distance, being mentally prepared and organized for the race you are about to run is key.

And since I do SO MUCH Pure Barre, here’s my review of Pure Barre Pure Results (focus on thighs) online workout. I don’t think I would still be running so consistently and injury-free for so long without complementing my running with Pure Barre.

Reviewing the Pure Barre Pure Results online workout with featured focus on thighs!

Now that Pure Barre On Demand has been released, expect a full review in another month or so. I love it so far!

Hi From Hershey & Running Round Up


Hi from Hershey Park! We have been having the best time this week and the chocolate isn’t half bad either…

hershey bar

I have lost count of how many chocolate bars and Hershey Kisses I have eaten but hey, it’s Hershey Park. If you are here, you eat chocolate with every meal. 🙂

Anyway, I will be back soon to recap our fun but in the meantime, I have been wanting to share a round-up of my favorite running-related and running workout posts from the last six months or so. I find it extremely helpful not only for me to see what I have been writing about in the last few months but for new readers who may have missed a great running-related post and workout idea!

Running & Health:

Laura and I worked together on this finding balance series. I really enjoyed writing it, learning and sharing the information. These posts are pretty popular which means I should probably put more posts like these together soon.

The Dangers of Running on Anti-Inflammatory Medications – I didn’t know there were side effects of running after taking ant-inflammatory medications until seeing it as a warning in a race info packet!

Race Recaps:

I ran two races this Spring. I am still planning my fall race calendar but remain super happy with my current half PR. 🙂

Aspire 10k Race Recap – The tune up race during my half marathon training!

Long Island Half Marathon – My current PR half marathon!

Long Island Half Marathon Over The Years – Running the same half marathon a few years in a row is a pretty cool experience since you are able to look back at where you were in your life at the time of the race.
