  • My New Take On Cross Training
    This injury sure is redefining my idea of cross training because this boot is making what was an easy task before injury now a workout.Vacuuming for instance now works up a sweat! Sure carrying a vacuum cleaner up and down the steps wasn't necessarily easy before, but now, it's especially difficult to maneuver with the boot.Also, I should mention that my washer and dryer are also in the basement. So this means multiple trips up and down the stairs doing laundry. So needless to say, household chores are now a workout. Today, it was getting up at 6am to get to the grocery store so that I could make it home before Hubby went to work. I wanted help unloading the car! I have at least 2 more weeks in the boot before I go back to the podiatrist. I don't have my hopes up that I will be out of the boot by then, but I am hoping that it's healing. And the thoughts of possibly at least riding a bike in a couple of weeks is encouraging. But I wanted to share with you a workout video that I did this week. I did a google search for chair cardio, and this video came up. And yes, chair cardio is a thing! But like a lot of workout videos, some are better than others. I have to say that I really enjoyed this one. I did actually work up a sweat. It's not the same as running or my other cardio exercises, but it is something. And Caroline Jordan has several videos on her YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkadh1ZnrCDOF8awC9NbAbA) I intend on checking out more of her videos. I'm new to her channel and her blog, but I think she's worth checking out. In fact, I just bought her book from amazon (affiliate link). I look forward to reading it. But this injury has definitely redefined cross training for me. Simple tasks that I took for granted aren't so simple now.However, being injured doesn't mean that I have to be sedentary. Ya'll know how I like to move! So It's kindof fun to find new ways to workout.A post shared by Amy 🏃🏻‍♀️ 💪🏻 🍦 (@willrun4icecream) on Jul 24, 2017 at 6:58am PDTChair cardio for the win!!!Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream.

  • Join Me This Summer And #TeaItUp
    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Swiss Premium. The opinions and text are all mine. I admit, I was counting down the days until summer. I love our fun summer activities. Usually Lil Man and I spend some time hiking the trails. A new trail system opened near our house, and we got in one two-mile hike before I broke my foot. Less than a week after our first hike together, on the very same trail, I broke my foot while running. So, this unexpected turn of events has changed our summer, but we aren't letting it stop us!It is summer after-all, and summer fun is a must! Lil Man is my engineer, and he will spend hours on a project. With a shovel, a water hose, an old nozzle and some zip ties, he made his very own sprinkler system. I love his creativity! Along with fun, summer also brings heat. In addition to our water activities, we like to cool off with fun cool treats.For the first time ever, we decided to make some popsicles. Honestly, I don't know why we haven't done this before. It was super easy! I guess I just never thought of it before. I did the heavy lifting with the gallon jug of Swiss Premium Lemonade.Lil Man did the honors of putting on the tops. The hardest part was waiting overnight for it to freeze.I think next time that we do this, I'd like to add some fresh fruit like strawberries or blueberries. I think they'd compliment the Swiss Premium Lemonade.Don't think I'm letting the boot stop me! We've been to the pool, the playground, and as always, our backyard is a fun adventure. And Swiss Premium Lemonade is my special treat after chasing Lil Man around the yard, retrieving stray basketballs, or helping with the trampoline and swing-set.Swim Premium contains all natural ingredients. It doesn't have preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. It does contain sugar. However, I feel that moderation is the key when it comes to enjoying treats. And for my son, a small amount goes a long way.A cold glass of lemonade or Swiss Premium Tea sure satisfies on a busy summer day.Join me and enter for a chance to win a $2,000 #TeaItUp summer package by clicking here.And click here for a 50 cent coupon off of Swiss Premium Tea or Lemonade.Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream.

  • What Being Injured Is Giving Me
    *This post contains affiliate links.* I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leave me? Well don't stop now...Click here to keep reading!

  • My Thoughts On The Rad Dog Release N Run Leash
    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a Release N Run Leash for free from Rad Dog in consideration for a gear review. All opinions are mine and honest in nature.  If you've been anywhere near me, then you know that Miles is a huge part of our lives. If you haven't met Miles, here is a picture of him when he was just a baby pup. Miles is a Mountain Cur.Now, he will be 2 in December, and he's still just as adorable. He thinks he's a huge lap dog. He loves to lay on the back of the couch. It's ridiculous, but we love him.He is my running buddy, but he's also Hubby's hunting dog. This means that he's outside a lot. When I run with him, he's usually on a leash. When he's with Hubby, he's usually off leash once they are in a safe place away from traffic. Hubby uses a tracking collar, but he needs a leash when they get near roads, or when he needs to make sure that he stays out of certain areas.I wish we would have had the Release N Run leash when we were traveling. Miles travels great in his dog box, but of course every time that we stopped at a rest area, we needed a leash. He was ready to get out of the box, and we were scrambling to find his leash. If we'd had the Release N Run leash, his leash would have been on his collar!Well don't stop now...Click here to keep reading!
