Rest Day and Great Harvest Bread Fairy!

Today was a much needed rest day...Plus I didn't have to mess up my "New Do" from yesterday!  I feel like I cannot get motivated on my rest days to do much of anything so I did what any runner would do and caught up on my favorite blogs and read my new Runner's World magazine which stressed the importance of rest days!  Bonus.  As I was reading I came across proper running form and strengthening exercises so of course I had to test them out....The hubby was heading to the gym so I decided to tag along for a little "light" strengthening...I found a FRESH new pair of my favorite socks before leaving for the Y:
I have had problems with my glutes and hamstrings in the past and definitely have to make sure to keep them balanced and happy so I did my PT work and tried out the new moves as seen in Runner's World!  I loved this move:
Holy Hammies!
Followed by this move:
With ab pull in...
I also lifted back, biceps and triceps with the hubby...No cardio today but all strength.  I have noticed overall I am feeling a lot stronger and less fragile since I started paying attention to sports specific training.  

Showing our Mizuno love!!  BEST shoes ever:

While we were at the gym the Great Harvest Bread Fairy ( aka: My Amazing Mom ) appeared at our house and dropped off some FRESH made bread and Cinnamon butter..
High 5 Fiber, Cinnamon Pull apart Bread and Lemon Dream Loaf

and Cameron thinks the butter is all his....Ummm I don't think so buddy!

What exercises do you do to stay injury free and balanced?!

Ever try Great Harvest Bread Company? 

Happy Running!
