Fit Family Feature #29 (Heather)

Fit Family Feature

This weekly post series for Country Fit Family is called Fit Family Feature. In this series I will be interviewing fellow fit parents about what they do for exercise and how they make time for fitness in their busy lives.  I know as parents we are always pressed for time and are often exhausted at the end of the day. Working out is usually the last thing on our to-do lists. I am hoping the Fit Family Features will showcase how other parents are managing and perhaps inspire others to get active.          In this week’s Fit Family Feature, I… » Continue Reading

Especially on a busy week night.  Here is my new Chicken Tomato Pesto Pasta recipe, I whipped this up for dinner last week and it was a big success with my kids and husband.      Chicken Tomato Pesto Pasta Prep time 10 mins Cook time 20 mins Total time 30… » Continue Reading

Weekly Run Report {26/01/15}

Weekly Run Report

I have created this weekly run report to keep track of all of my workouts. I love listing my stats and seeing how I am improving each week. I ran my first full marathon on Sept. 28th 2014. My plan for the winter is to maintain half-marathon capabilities and to build muscles especially in my core. I really believe that recording your workouts, especially your runs and paces helps to see your progress more clearly.  Hope you’ll follow along on my weekly adventures.       I am a bad blogger and forgot to take any photos during my runs so… » Continue Reading

YakTrax Run – Ice Traction Device REVIEW

20141229_095115

I have been running for two years but this is the first year I have been running outside in our Canadian winter. Last winter I stuck to the dreaded treadmill in my basement but this winter I committed to continuing to run outside multiple times a week regardless of weather. I knew I could layer enough to stay warm while running but I was very concerned about slipping on ice and falling.  My best friend Jessie, had bought a pair of YakTrax last winter and loved them so I contacted YakTrax Canada. They agreed to a review and sent me… » Continue Reading
