Mix It Up Monday: Guest Post from A Southern Yogi

Happy Monday everyone!! I'm really excited because today my good friend Wendi and I decided to do guest posts on each other's blogs. I feel so fortunate to have made such a wondeful friend at work here in South Carolina, and I am going to miss her SO much when we move to Colorado. She is such a fun person to be around and she's super thoughtful. For example, when I walked in to work this morning she had this SUPER cute, Southern, monogrammed pink and green basket waiting for me at my desk as a going away present with a sweet card. SO nice! I have really been wanting one of these baskets, and she couldn't have picked a more perfect one. I'm so excited to use it at the Farmers' Market and bring a little Southern style to Colorado!

Seriously, how cute is this? I love it! :)
Wendi and I have a lot of things in common; we both love fitness, blogging, and eating! She strives to live a very healthy and eco-friendly life, and her dedication is definitely an inspiration to me.  While we both love to workout, she is much more in to running than I am. I'll admit, I don't really run as much as I'd like anymore, however, I'm hoping to get back into it when we go to Colorado. I asked Wendi to do a blog post about getting back in to running, and I know that you'll all enjoy it as much as I did! Her blog is called A Southern Yogi, and I highly encourage all of you to follow her blog! (Also, I'm guest posting there today, so definitely check it out!)

Hola to all of Jane's followers!

I'm so excited she is having me be a guest on her infamous blog!! Jane and I were trying to think of what I should write about here and we both agreed that I should talk about running. In my blog, I talk about a lot of things, but running is the probably the #1 topic. So that's what I'm here to do. I hope I can entertain you as well as she has been able to!


There are lots of programs out there for beginning runners, Couch to 5k being the most popular. But what if you're not a couch potato and not quite the daily runner? What's a good way for you to start running, maybe train for a race, run for fun, whatever.

Running is one of those things that anyone can do, but everyone thinks they can't. The most common thing I hear is "I'm just not a runner, I don't enjoy it". NEWSFLASH.... no one gets off the couch and one day decides, hey, i'm going to run a marathon and then does it. It takes training. For example, you've got:

Tara from the Biggest Loser

AND ME!!

I never thought I could run!! I'm still kind of slow, but I love it and I love the community I'm involved in. Runners are so supportive and loving and they know you have those thoughts that you can't do it, because they did too!! So here are a few suggestions (based solely on experience - I am not a professional trainer nor am I a doctor, so please consult your physician before starting any exercise program) about how to get started.

1) Pick a race. Depending on your fitness level and the type of race will determine the amount of time you need to train. If you have a good fitness level but have never run, I would pick a race that's about 8 weeks away. Choose a fun 5k (3.1 miles) that's near your town.

2) Pick a running buddy. Especially in the beginning but even now, I can talk myself out of working out. How do I stay motivated; a lot of times, it's because I'm meeting a friend. Y'all can choose a race together and then set up a training plan that's easy for you to follow.

Some of my running buddies:


my mom


My friend's, Jeanne (middle) and Lori (far right)


SANTA CLAUS (j/k)

3) Pick a training plan. There are a million out there but Active and Runner's World have some good ones. The key to a good training plan is that it's manageable, it eases you into running and it incorporates speedwork. (to learn more about speedwork, please visit my blog - I talk about lots of different methods for training)

4) STICK WITH IT. This is the BIGGEST challenge when it comes to running. People just don't stick with the training. Maybe they lose their training partner, they get injured, whatever the case may be. You will have setbacks, but JUST KEEP TRYING. I promise, it gets easier, it gets more enjoyable and you WILL be a runner.

There is a famous quote from Bill Bowerman, co-founder of Nike: "If you have a body, you're an athlete". This is so true and just remember that when times get tough in your training.

Thanks Jane, for allowing me to blah blah on your blog! :)
