America’s Best Running Trails & Active Times Updates

americas-best-running-trails

 

Oh hey! So, I guess it’s been a while. Well, if you consider 2 weeks “a while,” that is.

It feels like it’s been much longer than that, though! I hate that I haven’t had much time to blog lately, but between keeping up with my half marathon training (my race is next weekend!), being super busy at work, and trying to maintain some sort of sanity, unfortunately blogging sort of got pushed to the back burner.

A Day in the Life of a Hungry Runner

running-motivation

Since I transitioned from personal training to my job at The Active Times about 5 months ago, my daily schedule and routine has changed pretty drastically.

I used to work at the gym, so finding time for exercise was much less challenging… Since I was already there and all, you know? Also, my schedule was a bit more flexible, which made it easier to make time for preparing healthy meals ahead of time.

Now I spend most of my time in the office, which means exercise and meal prep has to happen outside of the 9-5. It wasn’t easy, but I’ve slowly built a new routine that allows me to maintain most of my healthy habits. The following is a quick breakdown of what my typical day is like. When I run, what I eat, and even how I relax and unwind.

It’s official. I have become the ultimate exercise gear junkie. From sneakers and apparel to headphones and heart rate monitors, I’m a little bit obsessed with trying out the latest and greatest.

High Intensity Interval Treadmill Workout

high-intensity-interval-treadmill-workout

Let’s talk about running on the treadmill.

It’s not a very fun thing to do. You feel like a hamster, you have to stare at one thing (usually the time ticking away on the clock) for the entire time, and a pace that might feel somewhat moderate while outdoors sometimes feels like an enormous struggle.

Up until last week I had the pleasure of going several months without having run on a treadmill. But when that polar vortex came along, it really threw my running routine off; To the point where I hadn’t run in almost four days because it was just too damn cold outside.

Running Resolutions and Active Times Updates

the-active-times

Hungry Readers, I’ve missed you! Even though you’ve probably seen me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook over the past few days, it’s still been much too long since I’ve updated here. That’s mostly because last week at work was super busy (in the best ways possible!) and this week I’ve been spending time with family and friends on Long Island for the Christmas holiday.
