Today I blogged about motivation because I had a hard time getting that 2nd big run in. I did my 12 miles and felt good afterward. My food reflects trying to keep my body in check and not eat so low that I tap into muscle stores. I'm adding another 400 calories in dinner and that will keep me satisfied and ready to hit it hard next week. I got a lot of stuff planned to keep the body busy!!!

Backwards Walking Blog and My Own Hamstrings

Saturday, February 21, 2009

I wrote a detailed blog about backwards walking...
...and let me tell you...with all this marathon training I cannot wait to get back to it.

While doing 12 miles on a TM today my hams were really getting tight. All I wanted to do was go the opposite direction. I run 4 and walk 1 and the last two miles I did exactly that. I slowed down and walked backwards and it felt great. It really took some pressure off them. Normally 12 doesn't bother me but today I was running after a long tempo day and I ran a faster pace trying to get it over with.

So, if you want to jack your HR up, get in some fun and creative cardio on the TM, try turning around. My blog has a link to my video on how to do it. :)

    I will tell my son-law and my daughter as they do the tread mill also frontwards. Never heard that way. You look amazing.

    Thanks for the idea of walking backwards on the treadmill. This is something that I'm going to try. I want to improve my leg strength for running especially the hamstrings, and quads so this might just do the trick.

    Hey PnP,

If you run a hard tempo and follow with a long run the next day it should always be an LSD (long slow distance). I usually try to save my LSD runs for the weekend because I have my husband home to watch my kids.

I would suggest a foam roller to work out those hams or a product called "The Stick" its awesome and they sell it at most running shops or online. I've done 5 marathons all together so if you have any questons feel free to give me a shout.

What marathon are you training for?

PS you look PHENOMINAL!!! I'm so proud of your accomplishments and I don't even know you. :)

Happy training ~Jen

    I enjoy backwards walking on a incline in my neighbor. I love to feel the burn in the thighs and calves. And at work last night I was down another size in the scrub pants. emoticon It's working slowly, but surely. I will continue to be patient, positive, focused and determine to reach my goal.

Your site is wonderful. I was afraid that once I started to lose weight that the skin may be too much. I know that it may not happen for me, but it is great to see that you were able to actually get a waistline and have the skin come into place. You look great!
