Hi, Hayley, I was training for a 10-mile spring race and all was going well — till I got struck down six weeks ago by a sinus infection that has since become "walking" pneumonia. I of course dropped training when I realised I was well and truly ill (although I pushed on a couple weeks longer than I maybe should have), but I wasn't able to simply drop my full-time job, taking three spring-semester classes (a second degree is an insane idea, btw), doing freelance on the side and a trip across the Pond to see my Londoner boyfriend. Full Article

For the past couple of weeks I have been challenging all of you LaineyGossip readers to make change, find a challenge that is outside of your comfort zone and work towards accomplishing a new goal.  However, if you have not made it past at least three weeks you are likely finding yourself right back where you started. Full Article

Hi Hayley,I'm 28 years old, 5'3" and my weight without consciously eating healthy and exercising is 144 over the last 2 - 3 years. However, I have been eating healthy and exercising 3 - 5 times per week off and on this year and am currently on a four week streak and had lost a total of 10 lbs. On Friday morning I was 134. Full Article

Three letters are all I need to use to describe my Boston Marathon:  H-O-T.  The race directors were warning those who were not prepared, had not acclimatized to the heat or those who had medical conditions not to run and for the first time in history they offered all runners the opportunity to defer. Full Article

Hi Hayley,I’m 27, in pretty good shape and a chronic asthmatic.  I have just signed up to do my first half marathon with my girls in October and am really excited.  However, I am finding it so tough to run any more than a mile before I feel like my chest is going to explode and start coughing and wheezing. Full Article

The taper – that is where I am now.  I am just sitting here and waiting; there is nothing more that I can do except let my body rest.  It drives me crazy having no control, not being able to exercise, not being able to do anything more to get faster and stronger. If you have ever had to go through a taper you have felt like what I am about to feel like: slow and fat. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Bikini lines for active women

Hayley,I don't know what to do with my bikini line. I am very, very active. I bike to work five days a week (30 min each way), ride my horse 3-4 times a week, and do water aerobics 1-2 times. My skin is really sensitive and when I shave (carefully with good razors and shaving cream) it looks good for about a four days and then starts to get irritated as the hair grows back in. Full Article

Hell week, that is what I called my training last week. I set a goal of running 100km last week as I wanted to lose a little bit of weight (so I’m carrying less over the 42km) and I wanted to absolutely kill my legs in my last week of hard training. However, due to two big road blocks I only managed to achieve 80km. Full Article

I start every single morning with one serving of hemp hearts in or on whatever I am eating for breakfast.  These tiny little seeds are the easiest way to increase your daily intake of Omega-6 and Omega-3.  You can only get these Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) through food such as eggs, fish, fish oils and some nuts and seeds and your body can not function without them. Full Article
