With Monday as a holiday, Tuesday as my SITS day and baseball playoff games, it’s been a jam-packed week. I haven’t even had a chance to tell you about my fun gym date at Reebok CrossFit Fifth Avenue with a couple of other Fitfluential folks on Saturday!
Jill, Kristine, Katelyn, Ashley and Alfonso met up to take part in a TRX clinic. I really love TRX. It’s a fun (and hard) way to train. You have to recruit so many different muscles to stabilize yourself in order to perform seemingly simple moves. While it looks hardcore, it can be scaled to different fitness levels and is often used for injury rehab. It was fun to get back to TRX and to learn some new moves.
I really love that Reebok shirt.
On to this week’s Friday Round-up…
26.2 – in moments, snippets and pictures
Last weekend, Jess and her husband Scott ran their very first marathon in Chicago. Chicago was my first marathon too and I also ran it with my husband. It has been wonderful to follow Jess’ and Scott’s journey to 26.2 and to witness how they have tackled training and the race gracefully together as #teamsutera. I love this post because it’s not a traditional recap but captures all the moments surrounding the race beautifully. And the three pictures in the middle!!
A Story of Sisterhood
This post comes from Jo, Jess’ sister. I can’t think of a more poignant tribute to siblings and sisterhood.
Life is My Sport
There’s a lot of competition and comparison in life, especially in the fitness world. While MizFitOnline refers mostly to fitness, I think that her message applies to all areas of life – life IS a sport.
Should you exercise when sick? 5 Reason not to.
Usually, I abide by the rule that if it’s above the neck, go to the gym and if it’s below the neck, stay home. However, this post from Tamara at fitknitchick has me reconsidering my thinking.
7 Things You Should Never Say Out Loud in the Gym
This made me laugh, especially #5. Why do people say such things at the gym?
Lastly, I registered for Tina Reale’s Best Body Bootcamp! I’m really excited about this. I’ve heard such great things about her virtual 8 week fitness program (October 22 -December 17). The $25 registration fee is set aside towards cash prizes. It sounds like loads of fun. Won’t you join me? Registration for Round 3 closes Monday, October 15th.
