Trick of the Trade - Fav's

Here's an idea to squeeze a little more exercise into your busy, hectic, crazy day.

1st - Think of a place/room you enter several times through-out the day.

2nd - Think of an exercise you can repeat at least 10 times. i.e. push-ups, sit-ups, calve raises, lunges, jumping jacks, wall sit...

3rd - Every time you enter that room you have to do your exercise of choice.

For me, every time I enter my master bedroom I have to do 10 squat jumps. I've already done 20 this morning in 1 hour so I should get in some good plyometrics today.

Friday Fav's

  • DC Rainmaker...He's got my favorite give-a-way going on right now. A GARMIN 310XT!!! I shouldn't tell you because I really want to win but my chances are already slim and why not spread the love right? Good luck to you! (but not too much ;)

  • Tall Mom on the Run...Tall Mom makes it in again because of her "Rut" post. I have many friends who are at this point and these are good words to read.

  • Racing with Babes...Her post serves as a reminder to "Not Sweat the Small Stuff"

  • A Bold Pace...My new FAVORITE website. Maybe it's because I stumbled upon it as their newest post was an interview with my running icon Kara Goucher. Maybe it's because they have a great feature under their "Popular Posts" sidebar where they have created marathon playlists for different paces. I haven't been on the marathon bandwagon this year but I'm going to take the faster BPM songs and add them to my 10k playlist. Or maybe it's because I'm inspired by these 40+ year women who are rockin' the runner world. Either way, it's a great site. Check it out.

Have a great weekend! I'm going to spend mine at the ball field once again at a SB tourney but I've got plans to hit the road running come Monday. Until then!



Thanks for the link love! I so want to win that Garmin too!
