Inspirational Movies to get you MOVING!! « Think Tran

Dramas, documentaries, comedies, suspense thriller, horror, independent, etc etc.. I’ll watch them all. Minh doesn’t LOVE movies as much as I do.. actually, I often think that he only watches movies because I want to watch movies. He gets sleepy/lazy afterwards, which does not make for a fun Minh. Some of my favorite movies to watch are the ones that inspire me to go out and do something… and when I say “do something”, I’m not talking about saving the world or making a difference. Race Across the Sky (2009 or 2010) No surprise that this movie would make the cut of inspirational films. Ride the Divide (2010) The Great Divide Race usually solicits a response along the lines of: “Are you CRAZY? Bicycle Dreams (2009) Another documentary about a race that traverses a LONG LONG LONG distance… but this time instead of dividing the country from north to south.. you set off from Coast to Coast… 3000 MILES!!

Hood to Coast (2010) HOME. Christina Pirello: Change Your Life With Chia. When you think of chia seeds, you most likely think of the tiny seeds that were the joke of a generation as we slathered them on clay sculptures and gleefully watched the sprouting of 'green hair' on Homer Simpson and porcupines.

Christina Pirello: Change Your Life With Chia

Chia seeds (salvia hispanica) are wild seeds with origins in Mexico and Guatemala dating back to pre-Columbian times and have a long history as human food. Domesticated by ancient Mexicans in 2600 BC, these tiny seeds were a staple food of both Native American and Mexican cultures. Known to those cultures as 'the running food,' chia seeds and water were the main ingredients that fueled Aztec warriors in their conquests. Along with corn, beans and amaranth, chia seeds were a cornerstone in both the Mayan and Aztec diets. Tributes and taxes were paid to Aztec priests and nobility in chia seeds. Eat. Blog. Run.

The M cMillan Running Calculator by Greg McMillan, M.S. Ever wonder what pace you should be running in workouts? How 'bout when you run a 5K and want to know what you could run for 10K? Well, wonder no more. Since the mid-1990's, I've been working on a method that estimates your equivalent race performances using a current race time at any distance as well as giving the appropriate pace range for all the different types of workouts that you perform.

While there are lots of other methods for estimating race performances (and I've tried most of them) I haven't found one that is specific enough, is laid out in an easy-to-read format or that is based on what runners in the real world are capable of doing. To use the calculator, simply choose a recent race distance below, making sure to choose a distance for a performance which accurately reflects your current fitness level. The Most Comprehensive DVD Collection on Improving Your Running featuring Greg McMillan 2011 Super Distance Summit. Running Fuel Recipes and Guidelines. If you fuel your workouts by putting nothing but processed junk in your body, what kind of results do you expect to get from it?

Running Fuel Recipes and Guidelines

Even for non-vegetarians just looking to get away from processed, commercial sports drinks and gels, the guidelines and recipes here are highly useful. When you fuel your runs with natural foods, you derive energy from sources that humans have evolved to eat over millions of years—ingredients that your body knows how to effectively handle. You’ll find that many of the running fuel recipes are based on similar ingredients to provide slow- and fast- release carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats: Agave nectar, lemons and limes, dates, chia seeds, flaxseed, and bananas are some of the staples you’ll use over and over.
