Happy Hump Day guys!
I thought I would try something a little new this week.
Lately, I’ve been coming across a bunch of awesome health/fitness resources from Youtube videos to podcasts and every time I find something new, I think about how I should share it on the blog. And then I forget… So, I’m hoping that by starting this Wellness Resource Wednesday as an ongoing series on the blog, I’ll remember to share what I find and you all can take advantage of the resources that sound interesting to you! My plan is to cover everything from running to workouts to nutrition – basically, anything that I think you guys as readers might want to know more about or check out for yourself!
First up this week – a 53-minute NOVA documentary I watched a couple weeks ago on Youtube. It’s called Marathon Challenge (click to watch!). It follows the story of 12 non-runners selected by a group of researchers at Tufts University to train for the Boston Marathon. The researchers wanted to find out whether sedentary non-athletes could become marathoners in 9 months of training. While I sort of question the ethics of throwing brand new runners into the sport with marathon training (even if they did have high-caliber coaches!), it was still fascinating to watch. I don’t want to spoil the ending, but I will say the results are inspiring, and the video is definitely worth a watch if you’re in need of a little motivation boost.
If you watch the documentary, let me know what you think! Do you have a health/fitness resource you love?
