Moms on the Run National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, regularly shares training tips to help us improve our running. Today she offers suggestions regarding the question, "How do we keep our shins happy?" Those of us in the northern regions of the country may not be out running as much as our counterparts in the south. For all of us, however, avoiding shin splints is key. Watch the video below.
At Moms on the Run, we hear over and over that many women join to get into running, but end up staying because of so much more. For Hastings (MN) member Amy Seefeld, Moms on the Run has far exceeded all her expectations.
"I wasn't actually sure what I was searching or hoping for when I joined," reflects Amy, "but thankfully the MOTR family surpassed anything I could have dreamed up. You all have filled me up with inspiration, support, love, friendship, motivation (and the list goes on) to carry me through to where I am today. Thank you, God, for bringing these amazing women into my life!"
It's the last day of 2019, so happy New Year's Eve! As we look to the new year, we'd like to know some of your fitness questions. We regularly bring you training tips on Tuesdays featuring our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson. We'd like to do another round of Ask Coach Carrie series of videos featuring your questions. Click on the photo below to watch Carrie's video, then click here for an easy way to submit your question or idea.
We have two great challenges coming up to motivate you in the new year!
First, our Winter Workout Challenge is back! This is a free, fun challenge that will launch January 6. For one week, we will post on our national Facebook and Instagram pages one exercise a day to challenge all levels. If you are just beginning your journey, you can choose to do that day's challenge at one time or throughout the day, making sure to complete the exercise by the end of the day. If you are advanced, you can level up and do the daily challenge twice! (For example, 50 squats becomes 100 squats.) After you complete the exercise, you will post on our national Facebook page: challenge completed. This post will qualify you for that day's entry; one lucky winner on both Facebook and Instagram every day will win our Moms on the Run Touch Screen Gloves. The Winter Workout Challenge will run Monday through Sunday, Jan. 6-12.
