I told you, the froyo isn’t going anywhere and just $1.79 brings me so much happiness.
If you haven’t tried these yet, I highly recommend this flavor… HIGHLY.
Got a little one-on-one time watching Cupcake Wars with my niece while Brooke was napping.
Late last night Jess and I hit up a yoga class for some much needed stretching and catching up.
Brooke’s horse that she painted was finally ready to be picked up yesterday!!
Just found this instagram account and I am loving it!
My latest Women’s Running article is about embracing the easy run!!!
Our iron levels can affect our running performance big time. If we are not getting in enough iron then our hard workouts, long runs etc are going to definitely suffer. We need to remember that runners lose more iron than non-runners through our feet, through sweat and through our intestines. Menstruation makes it even harder for female runners to sustain proper iron levels. (source)
What are some good sources of iron that we can eat—> dark green leafy vegetables (like spinach), beans, eggs, red meat, pork, poultry, seafood, dried fruit (raisins and apricots:), iron-fortified cereals, breads and pastas.
I am loving steak lately:
Don’t let an iron-deficiency slow you down!
Why it affects our running so much:
Some of the symptoms of an iron-deficiency include fatigue and shortness in breath. If you think you are dealing with this problem then go on in to your doctor for a blood test. We are runners so we are bound to be tired but unusual levels of fatigue/exhaustion should definitely be something we work with our doctors on to determine food sources and supplementations that could help!
Who has had an iron-deficiency before?!
Any yoga lovers? How often do you go? What is your favorite yoga benefit?
Made any changes in your nutrition that has really helped out your running?
Tell me something random today… randomness makes me happy!
