My running form is something I am constantly trying to work on. I am the queen of hunching over as my body gets more and more tired so my focus lately has been on running tall.
What I do for this—> as soon as I notice I am slouching as I am running along I reach my arms up as tall as I can and interlace my fingers (preferably without falling). This helps me to really align my body and get everything nice and stretched out…
And what to do with the rest of your torso:
We took my friend’s little girl to her gymnastics lesson today.
The look Brooke gave me because she wasn’t allowed to play on the equipment while we waited.
Those eyes convinced me to sign up for the mommy and me gymnastic class.
Some internet finds:
-Check out my latest article on Women’s Running!
-Loved this— The Massive Fitness Trend That’s Not Actually Healthy at All.
–Candice’s post on instagram today:)
-I want to be in the middle of this square of puppies.
-For those of you running the St. George Marathon this weekend, THIS post about pacing for this race is awesome!! I will take his advice and go for a negative split!
–This article on proper technique while running hills! I have a strong feeling that these tips are going to come in handy on Saturday!
And I need your opinion on these two things:
1. Are these good enough to buy? I stood in the Target aisle for 4 minutes trying to decide whether or not to buy them.
2. Should I wear a hat at the race (worried about the heat because it is supposed to get into the 90s that day)!??! I am thinking if there is ice along the course I can just throw a few cubes in my hat to keep me nice and cool:) I think it will also be nice to block the sun out of my face.
