Morgan “bites off more than she can chew” Shuker reporting for duty
If you can believe it, I was actually off of school and work last week. I attended my Personal Trainer certification in class programming. They were long days and lots of learning. So many body parts!!!
I’ve had so many great things to post this month that never got up. When I’m going through my days I kind of write and rewrite blog post ideas in my head. Unfortunately many of these didn’t make it. At the beginning of the month I met Gretchen Rubin, it was awesome. She liked my braid. Last week I had this hilarious blog post called “Double Dave Leitch Double Cheese.” It was a heroic tale of the one time Brad beat me at Jeopardy. We had ordered pizza, Brad wanted double cheese on his. That kind of pushed him over the edge, he was in a total food coma. However, as we flicked on Jeopardy to square off (everything’s a competition in our house), we noticed a contestant named Dave Leitch. That happens to be Brad’s legal name. Magically, like Will Ferrel in Old School, Brad channeled the power of double Dave Leitch and double cheese to win?!?!? Dave Leitch the contestant also won.
Moving on, last week I spoke at the Running Room about injury prevention.
Last time I was there I spoke more about managing injuries: the emotional side, dealing with your medical professionals team, taking precautions. This time, since I’m thiiiiiiis close to being PT certified I taught the group some dynamic stretches, posture lessons, and strength exercises for injury prevention.
No trip to the Running Room is complete without a new pair of shoes.
Last time I grabbed a new pair of Nike Frees but I haven’t been loving them for running. This time I got the Saucony ProGrid Ride 5. This is like a movie trailer, because I haven’t worn them yet so therefore can’t give you the full run down. Stay tuned. I hope I didn’t tell you all of the funny parts in the trailer.
What do you look for in a running shoe?
Jeopardy, who wins at your house?
