- At the start of September, I started contemplating whether I should upgrade my dot-wordpress-dot-com domain by owning it outright. I’m excited to say that and just over a week ago I made the leap! I’m sure some of you might have noticed the little change on my blog url recently 🙂 Important Note: WordPress claims that anyone subscribing to the dot-wordpress-dot-com version of my blog will automatically have it redirected here, but check your RSS feed, Google reader or whatever else you use just in case! Thanks!
- Last night I made a permanent I Sweat Pink page under Health & Wellness! This page will be an archive for everything that relates to Sweat Pink (vlogs, meet-ups, events etc…) and regularly updated. Not much now, but eventually!
- Recently I was contacted by SlimKicker.com to potentially work with them early next year! I will keep you updated on what happens (fingers crossed!), but in the meantime check out their website & app! SlimKicker.com is a free site and app that helps people achieve their health and fitness goals in a fun way 🙂 EX: When you first start, you upload a picture of something you’ll reward yourself with (like a dress, ipad, or cheat meal) and once you rack up enough points and level up, they’ll remind you to reward yourself!
- Done with Physical Therapy, but sore left knee?!?!? I knew there was NO way I had developed a runners or jumpers knee having been OUT OF RUNNING for over TWO MONTHS and only having completed 3 sessions of walk/runs (mostly walking) over the last couple weeks. Thankfully I saw my chiropractor Dr. Justin McLeod from Santa Cruz Spine and Sport this morning, so he did some fancy acupressure stretching and some graston scraping to help it feel better! Luckily my knee didn’t have any scar tissue, it was just a bit tight (muscle/tendons to the left of the kneecap), which caused the pain/soreness. Plus my left quad was WAY more tight than my right side, which could have been a contributing factor (and not surprising since my right side has had lots of attention from the hamstring strain). To prep for my half marathon in 3 weeks, I will keep foam rolling like a boss, icing and compressing since I need to be able to walk for 3.5-4hrs straight (and I don’t want to have any injuries)!
Has anyone ever walked a half marathon? Tips?
