My Thoughts On The Rad Dog Release N Run Leash

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a Release N Run Leash for free from Rad Dog in consideration for a gear review. All opinions are mine and honest in nature

If you've been anywhere near me, then you know that Miles is a huge part of our lives. If you haven't met Miles, here is a picture of him when he was just a baby pup. Miles is a Mountain Cur.

Now, he will be 2 in December, and he's still just as adorable. He thinks he's a huge lap dog. He loves to lay on the back of the couch. It's ridiculous, but we love him.

He is my running buddy, but he's also Hubby's hunting dog. This means that he's outside a lot. When I run with him, he's usually on a leash. When he's with Hubby, he's usually off leash once they are in a safe place away from traffic. Hubby uses a tracking collar, but he needs a leash when they get near roads, or when he needs to make sure that he stays out of certain areas.

I wish we would have had the Release N Run l…

Is Personal Training Worth It?

For awhile now, I've been working on strength training. And I feel that I've reached a point, that I'd like to work with a trainer.... to work on form... to show me some new things that I haven't been doing.. to help me stay accountable... and to push me harder than I would normally push myself.

Why is it that when I workout by myself, I stop when it gets 'tough', but a trainer can say just 3 more, and I'll give it all I have to get those 3 more reps?
I don't know why (for me personally) that I need someone to push me, but apparently I do. And I'm hoping to reach a point, that I'll push through like that for myself without needing someone to push me to get there. But right now.. I'm not there.

So I signed up for 4 training sessions with an intro package through one of the gyms that I go to. (I go to several because we can through our insurance). I'm half way through my 4 sessions, and I'm definitely feeling muscles that I haven't felt before. Here is my new best friend!

And for the first time... well.. in a very long time, my biceps are actually sore. So this week I've definitely done something different.

This is pre-training sessions. I'm hoping my little guns get a little bigger and more defined.

Now, comes the hard part... try to find the $$$ to get more sessions or continue trying to work on these goals on my own....

I'm thinking that I'm ready to invest some money into me. That's how I view personal training at this point for me... I'm investing time and money for me... to help me reach my goals...

I haven't made my decision yet, but I think that personal training would be beneficial. How about you? Do any of you work with a trainer?

  1. I've been working with the same trainer for about 1 year and a half and I'm not planning to quit :). I'm not a spender, so this is where some of my savings go, because I really needed to do this for myself. I'm stronger, leaner and doing things I never imagined myself doing. It started as weight loss, then we worked on form and posture, now we're working on upper body strength cause my legs are already rock solid haha. So yeah, I totally recommend this!
