I Cross Train with TRX…A LOT.

Monday: 15 abs

Thank you guys so much for all the fueling advice!! After reviewing comments I’m going to try eating small amounts of food frequently, instead of what i’m used to doing–> GU every 45 minutes. I didn’t realize just how different fueling for a marathon is compared to a half. I honestly thought it was the same… all you blogger/runners out there are awesome and thank you again.

Good Morning! Time for Coffee & Blogging!

Sunday I was in a TRX Training class from 9-5. I took a course for their suspension trainer last October, this time it was for the Rip Trainer. Tool description–Rip Training utilizes a lever bar and resistance cord to provide a unique mix of rotation, core stability, control, power, strength, mobility, metabolic conditioning, balance and coordination challenges…The Rip Trainer allows users to engage in unlimited movements which, when performed properly, enhance fluidity and range of motion and decrease the risk of injury.”

TRX tools are incredible and no i’m not paid for saying that or in any way affiliated with TRX. I’ve been using their suspension trainer for about 6 months now and i’ve noticed a HUGE difference in the way my body looks. This is probably because TRX workouts are fun and effective so I want to workout more often. If you know a friend or a gym that has one, try it out!

…on top of how awesome TRX is, it’s also a fun workout and i had my mom do a workout while she was here. See how much fun she’s having!

During the 8 hour class we definitely worked out about 3 of those hours. (Immediately after i went to a nearby park and ran a few speedy miles to finish out peak week!). Overall the day was well spent, I was spent and I got to meet a bunch of cool people.

I hope everyone has a great day. Keep Boston in your hearts and remember that a year ago, everyone became a Bostonian. I pulled my Facebook status from that week and it still resonates with how I feel today.

Anyone ever tried TRX suspension or rip training before?

Who’s running Boston next Monday or trying to qualify this year?
