Winter is coming and someone stole my MOJO!!! :o(

Topic • 3 replies

I've completed my last Fall race. I can't bring myself to run outside after the temperature dips to anywhere's near 10 degrees Celsius. I'm so envious of girlfriends that still have races scheduled into November, but it literally hurts my body and I can't...

I try to encourage myself by registering for races through the winter months to keep my mojo strong and going.. I will try to have a least one training run session a week outdoors as well. So far that has worked for me.

Skipping in the dark

Topic • 4 replies

Ok, maybe not completely dark, but a bit of residual light. Anybody tried this? When you consider much of skipping is about rhythm, it's surprising how much more difficult dim-skipping is.

Newest reply

It is still not dark enough when I go to the gym (around 7:30am) but I was so curious to find out if I could skip in the dark so I decided to close my eyes and skip.  Same thing, right?!  What a strange sensation.  I had no problems keeping the rythm going...

How do you spend your rest days?

I'm currently feeling the effects of a tough workout and have pretty much every muscle hurting right now! I had a full day off yesterday (but walked a lot doing some touristy stuff), today I found cycling was actually a relief rather than doing nothing. ...

Newest answer

I like to walk on my rest day .... nice & leisurely that you can get a good look around ! Normally along the coast but, like @danykap, if it were to involve a few shops that would be quite pleasant too :-)

Best Way To Lose Weight Running

Topic • 1 reply

Running at a medium pace primarily targets fat cells for energy; therefore, people say it is the “fat burning zone” and is the best way to lose weight running. Although all of this is true it is only half the story. The Other Half of the Story Ex...

Great article and I agree, but a lot of people forget that you still burn calories far after the workout. For example you may only burn 500 in the example above, but you still are getting the benefit far beyond the 500 originally burned if you are being co...

Ok, maybe it's pelvis and above to be technical. But do men and women alike really ignore male legs?

I think if this is not "challenging" for you then don't take it. If you want to than do. There is not need to critique the validity of the challenge.
