Hi, I'm Petra and this is my weight loss/fitness blog.
I used to be on Weight Watchers from January 2011 to October 2012, dropping approximately 45 lbs. I've made the transition from unhealthy and unhappy to athlete and this is my journey to becoming a healthier, happier me. I frequently post about my exercise (mostly running, yoga and lifting), the foods I eat, recipes I liked and my daily struggles. You'll also find the occasional tree hugger post, (travel) photography or anything else I find worth remembering and collecting.
I follow most blogs back that follow me. However, I do stay away from blogs that promote EDs, unhealthy methods of weight loss or negative body image.
Feel free to say hi any time!
Why do 10 minutes of foam rolling hurt just as much as running 10 miles on tired, shin split legs? And who needs waterboarding if foam rolling is a perfectly legal form of torture?
I know, IT band, I know. It hurt. I’m sorry.
On the bright side, my 10 miler this morning was tough and unfortunately, not a good run, but I pulled through and completed it. That’s what I choose to focus on today.
Does anybody have a good marathon training plan? Which one have you experienced marathoners used?
