Build Your Running Body Giveaway


Apologies for the lack of posting yesterday and the late post today. Brooks is having a bit of a sleep regression & taking care of him is obviously #1 priority {baby>blog! } Thanks for understanding if my posting schedule gets a little crazy here & there. I’ll likely always be sharing what’s going on in my day to day on Instagram!

Don’t forget to check out my Skinnygirl Snack Swap Giveaway too – Ends tomorrow!


Back to our regularly scheduled post….

Build Your Running Body

I love reading running & fitness related books. I have a huge pile of them on our bookshelf & I always find myself reaching for them to reference something or to be inspired to chance up my workout & do something different.

As a runner who has run 3 marathons, 8 half marathons, 3 ten milers, two 10k’s, 3 five milers, eight 5k’s a triathlon and a relay {not that I’m counting…} I like to think that I take fitness pretty seriously. My training has taken a backseat during my pregnancy & life with a new little one this past year but I still very much consider myself a runner.

While I don’t have any races on the calendar at the moment {but planning on signing up for a few soon!} I think I love running even more now because I am just doing it for me.

No pressure, no training plan – I just run to run.


I love this book because I am sort of in my own little process of building back my running body – and this book is perfect for me – Build Your Running Body : A Total-Body Fitness Plan for All Distance Runners, from Milers to Ultramarathoners – Run Farther, Faster, and Injury-Free. This book focuses on helping you train smart, with your whole body and provides workouts, training programs, exercises, nutritional guidance and more to help create a well-rounded body and mind for any runner.

A little more about the book ->

This book is an illustrated training manual that goes beyond the conventional pursuit of mileage and focuses on exercises for each element that builds the ultimate running body: muscles, connective tissue, cardiovascular fitness, energy production, the nervous system, hormones, and the brain. For distance runners of any level looking to take the next step in their training comes a total-body running guide and fully illustrated training manual designed to help runners improve their times, run more comfortably at longer distances, and reduce injury.
