I Thought I was Fit

So, my knee hurts. (Doc) Hubs says tendinitis. No running, cycling, squatting, etc. for at least a few days. Well, great then. What am I gonna do now? Yesterday, I did an all upper body weight lifting session. Usually, I do short, heavy, full… Continue Reading “I Thought I was Fit”

Helpful Tools or Instruments of Torture

My relationship with these objects is complicated. It is most definitely love/hate. I used a foam roller to recover from my anterior tibial tendinitis, and to maintain my life during marathon training. There is absolutely no way I would have survived dropping my kids… Continue Reading “Helpful Tools or Instruments of Torture”

Weird Food

They apparently contain more than 190 different bioactive compounds, and are one of the only known natural sources of omega-3’s, 6s and 9s in a single food. I HAD to try it.
