Hi Haley, I'm hoping for your input on two different types of workouts.  I have been working very hard the last few years to shift my focus from what exercise will make me "skinny" and more on my overall health and on keeping active with things I like. I'm at a "the same old workouts aren't giving me the results they once did" stage, so I want to know if either of these is a useful change for me. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I've started my running training again (10K in April, Half in the fall) and this year I am determined to incorporate strength training. I swore the last few years I would, and I failed miserably... could you suggest some strength training and stretches specifically for runners? Preferably a routine I could do twice a week, alongside the 3 runs (4 once Half training kicks in!) that I do per week? Thank you so much! ___ Good for you for committing to doing strength training throughout your running training as so many runners shy away from strength training as they feel that it will add bulk, which will slow them down. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I need some help with exercises I can do at home. I'm trying to lose the last of my baby weight, and while I'm working on getting my diet in better shape, between a baby and a full-time job I don't have a lot of spare time for fitness (I know, lame excuse, but there it is). Full Article

I had this realization the other day while out running in the trails and it made me think. I was coming up on a long set of stairs and I started to talk myself out of running them, convincing myself that it was ok to walk them to the top. Which is what I did. Then when I got to the top I started running again and this made me ask myself: Why am I taking it easy when things get hard and then pushing myself when it is easy? I am never going to become stronger if this pattern continues. Full Article

I'm writing on my iPhone in complete frustration after trying to exercise. To simply train for a 5km that everyone and their brother and friend's granny can do but for some reason, I just can't seem to train successfully. The problem I'm having today is one I've had for a while and I guess I'm just at this very moment frustrated enough by it to write in. Full Article

Trail running. Have you tried it? If so, do you love it? Here on the west coast we are privileged to be able to run in the trails all year, but I am certain that not all of you are that lucky. However, most of the world is starting to thaw and the trail running season is upon us. This is why I love trail running and why if you haven’t tried it yet, you need to. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I am confused. When it comes to diet/lifestyle, I know not every diet is for everyone. I know for some, paleo is the way to go, for some it's vegan or gluten free, and for others it's just simply a balanced and clean diet. It does get confusing, with so many conflicting theories and "facts" that you try to take in, when trying to make the right choices for yourself. Full Article

Hi Hayley, Everyone talks about losing weight, but what if you've lost the weight and now need to maintain?  It doesn't seem like anyone's giving advice about that. I've recently lost 70 pounds the old-fashioned way - paying attention to what and how much I eat, and moving more. Full Article

Hey Hayley, I think a lot of fitness articles and gurus don't realize that some people like their round curvaceous hips, though they have now accepted ample bums. I am a petite woman with a true hourglass figure that has recently put on weight in my midsection due to my fibroids just being raging assholes and yeah 6 months of nesting as a newlywed. Full Article

Hi Hayley! I'm now a year out of Grad School, and I've beaten 95% of the bad habits I picked up while there. Last July I got back into the gym, and it was tough going, but while I haven't lost all the extra weight I feel so much better. Except I overworked myself when I started back, and promptly gave myself bursitis in my left shoulder. Full Article
