A Doctor-Professor answers the old question “What is the single best thing we can do for our health” in a completely new way.
This is it – it’s time for our Rock ‘n’ Roll program participants to celebrate their training by running or walking 13.1 miles! Good luck to all our members running or walking!
A lot of us incorporate treadmills as part of our training. They are convenient, weather-independent, and easier on our joints. But is there a right way or wrong way to do a treadmill workout?
If you haven’t already signed up for these events, now is the time. If you are already signed up for the RnR event but haven’t signed up for Helvetia, what are you waiting for? These two half marathons are the perfect way to start your summer!
Our RnR schedule says 5/18/13 is an OFF day because of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half on Sunday. But if you aren’t doing RnR, the Helvetia Half group will be meeting to do 9 miles, so come join us! If you are doing the RnR, take the rest day and good luck on Sunday, May 19th!
Last Saturday I was running with the Red 8-milers on our Fanno Creek North trail. It was a 4-mile out-and-back and at one point, we got passed by the Greens. I ran with them, too, for a bit. And then I heard a Green woman yell “Hi, Mom!” Her mom was in the Red group.
The good news is that it’s finally warm outside. The bad news is that we’re distance runners and walkers and we’d prefer temperatures in the 50′s and 60′s instead of the 70′s and 80′s. So let’s talk about some tips for running and walking in the heat.
This week a lot of us have an odd-looking speed workout on our schedule. It looks like this –> 10min WU 10(25×25) 10min CD. What is that?!? It’s called a “Repeat Workout” and they can be a lot of fun.
If you want to be on TV, come join us on Thursday, April 25 at 6am at the Waterfront Salmon Street Springs. “Good Day Oregon” will be featuring Portland Fit. Come out and meet Andy Carson, get your daily workout done, and wave to your kids at home eating breakfast.
We’ve wrapped up our 2013 Referral Contest and we’re pleased to announce our winners. Thanks to everyone that shared Portland Fit with others through Facebook, personal blogs, or the good old fashioned way — just telling a friend!
