Health & Fitness Links To Get You Through The Day

I am starting to get nervous about the Philly Half this weekend. I usually LOVE tapering (less miles woohoo) but this is the first time I’m feeling kind of anxious about the drop in mileage. I know I can do this but then I’m also like “omg what if only running 3 times this week isn’t enough?!” Crazy thoughts, I know ;)

Here are this week’s links!

Featured: Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Potato (Skinny Taste)

I had to feature this because I made it last night and it was delicious. I found it yesterday when someone on Twitter suggested I check out Skinnytaste for recipe ideas. Even the BF loved it – and he’s a picky eater!

  • Running & Weightloss (Run To The Finish) – A shameless plug for a guest post I wrote for Amanda of Run To The Finish today. Go check it out if you’ve had issues with running more and more but hitting a weightloss plateau.
  • 20 Delicious Thanksgiving Day Side Dishes (Jessie Loves 2 Run) – Thanksgiving is almost here! I am bookmarking this for myself in order to make something new this year. Can’t wait to eat!
  • 15 No Equipment At-Home Workouts (Ex Sloth) – Winter time means less motivation to go to the gym or exercise outdoors. No excuses with this list of workouts you can do right in your own living room.
  • How To Mobilize & Stretch Hip Muscles with Tennis Ball (TriDosha Wellness) – I love using a tennis ball as opposed to a foam roller. Gets in deeper and you’re able to move around on it more. 

Do you use a typical foam roller? Or one of those rollers with the grooves or ridges (I love the RumbleRoller too!)

  1. Obviously it’s no original philly cheesesteak (aka a bag filled with nothing but grease hahah!), but that Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Baked Potato looks insanely good.

    Thanks so much for sharing my round up. I really appreciate it, Patty!

  2. Great links! Definitely checking out the hip muscle stretches with a tennis ball. After a massage I found out a lot of my leg tightness if from my hips and glutes!

  3. I love my foam roller! I can always count on it to give me a good stretch. I recently got a small little wood roller for my plantar fasciitis and it works great.
