Weekly Rewind~Fitness Edition

rewindHoly cow this week has flown by! TGIF means it’s weekly rewind time here at Herbivore Triathlete!

The 2013 triathlon training is in full swing for me and I’m starting the year strong with big goals and high expectations for a fantastic year.

Today I’m going to share what I’ve been reading this week on the web that is related to health and fitness.

Here’s a few articles that are helpful, motivational and inspirational:

New-to-me Blogs I’ve been enjoying:

I’ve always been interested in health, nutrition, science and medicine. I spent my teenage years as a vegetarian; I studied and received a minor in Sports Medicine during my undergraduate years. For the past couple of years, and even more so lately, I’ve felt stuck and burned out in my current job/career choice.

I’m seriously considering going back to school to pursue certification in a field related to nutrition and fitness. (It may also have something to do with the fact that I will be turning 35 next week, yikes! Mid-life crisis or something like that…) I’m looking into the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to be a health coach as well as the Plant Based Nutrition Certification through Cornell. In high school I had dreams of going to Cornell for veterinary medicine, ah memories.

My plan/goal was to do strength & flexibility training as a second workout on the days that I have spin class since class is at 6 AM. However, I had to work late on Wednesday and was not able to fit in another workout. Saturday I had other obligations that prevented a second workout. I will try again next week to double up on those days!
