Nike just released their new LunarEpic low flyknit, a shoe that is designed to fit like a comfortable sock. It’s light weight, but offers ample support for your longer runs. The foam at the heel absorbs impact and helps you achieve the desired ‘heel-to-toe’ running motion. Plus, it comes in tons of cute colors AND gives you the option to design your own. What more can a girl want?

Recipe of the Day
Check out these ‘piña colada’ stove top oats- easy, filling, and restoring after a long morning run. Don’t have all the toppings pictured below? Not a problem. You can substitute any fruit for the bananas, and regular peanut butter works in place of the almond butter. To keep it super simple, just sprinkle some granola on top and enjoy!

Need a break from running today? We’ve got you covered.
Though you may love running, forcing yourself to hit the trails seven days a week is dangerous and damaging. Your body needs time to recover (at least a day) and restore to help build muscle. Even better, try taking 2 days off and using one of them to tackle a new workout. Don’t be concerned about burning the calories or staying in shape- with the right type of exercise, this won’t be a problem.
Don’t know where to get started? Check out these three alternate workouts that burn more calories than a 3 mile run!
