So I am no professional photographer, but I managed to get some awesome shots of My Chemical Romance (and Neon Trees!) at the Showbox! Check it out!
Amber Pacific stopped by the studio to chat with Izzie and Danielle! Check out the photos of the interview and performance!
THE AUDITION took the stage before This Providence at Saturday's Private Performance. Check out the photos!
I can’t believe I have been working at this for 6 weeks already! The Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon is just 85 days away. AH! I got so busy in the last week that I didn't even post at the end of week #5. This week was a bit of a challenge nutrition-wise for me, but I know that starting today I am totally back on track with it. Haven’t started running on a regular basis, but its just around the corner; my friend Scott who owns StoneWay CrossFit will be training me with the CrossFit Endurance program to get ready for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. I can’t wait!
I haven’t had time to get to the gym this week because of various things that got in the way. So, I’ve been working out at home. If you’re in need of a good 10-minute workout, don't have a gym membership, aren't ready to committ to CrossFit, etc., here’s a little workout that you can do at home. All I use is a yoga mat, although if you have a good-sized carpeted area in your home it would work well, too.
AMRAP 10 minutes (as many reps as possible in 10 minutes)
15 sit ups
20 air squats
Completing all three things (10 burpees followed by 15 sit ups followed by 20 air squats) counts as one “rep.” You must do them in order. Complete the list as many times through as you can in 10 minutes. Really gets everything working and your heart pumping.
So… what is a burpee? ...Either your new best friend, or your worst nightmare. Here is a little how-to video I found on the world wide web.
See why it might be your worst nightmare? If you didn’t think that was bad, look at this video of the burpee MILE.
I’ve also been doing daily at-home stretching/mobility throughout the Whole Life challenge (which is over in just 2 short weeks! Can’t wait for my WOD retest). I’m a big fan of the pigeon stretch, ‘wind releasing pose,’ and a few other yoga poses. Just taking a few minutes to stretch at the beginning and/or end of each day really calms me down, and makes me feel good. You should try it! If you need some stretch ideas, feel free to ask me! @BonjourDanielle.
Anyone out there planning on doing the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon? Got any good tips? Let me know!
