Siobhan and I are proud to represent Skirt Sports as Ambassador Captains. Skirt Sports is an amazing company, not only for their apparel products, but for the community of women they have created. It’s a community of support and inspiration, and being a part of that at the Ambassador level is an honor. Skirt Sports is launching a new campaign this month: #REALwomenmove. That got us thinking, what does “Real Women Move” mean to us…
While most of us that are runners love to toe the line, it’s not always feasible. Kids have sports starting the same time as the race. Your travel budget for racing has run out. There may be lots of reasons you can’t make it to an event, but that doesn’t mean you can’t participate! Virtual racing started a few years ago, but is just recently becoming a trend.
Spring is finally here which means it’s time for some “spring cleaning”. How does this apply to your workouts? Here are some suggestions on how to put some springtime fresh starts, growth, and change into your routine.
When we think about training and racing, very rarely do we consider the importance of recovery in our training/racing schedules. In our time crunched lives, recovery is an aspect of training that is often ignored. We are busy thinking about our current workout, our next workout, our plans after our workout, our children’s activities, etc. However, in order to have optimal training and racing with minimal injury and maximum energy and motivation, we should remember how important recovery is after tough or long workouts and especially after races. Also, our return to activity should be gradual after races.
