    Best Cathe workouts for runners?

    I've been running 20-25 miles a week for the past few years and I found doing lighter weight exrsices cut my time significantly. I went from a solid 9 minute mile to more like an 8:20 on a regular basis. I've done 50-60# dead-lifts, 30# FULL squats, 25# lunges, double sets of all. I also added...

    Just a heartfelt "Thank you" to Cathe

    I'll only add that along with incredible gains in physical strength and fitness, Cathe and Crew have helped me grow self confidence as well! What more could a girl ask for? Thanks Cathe!

    Sooooo hungry....doing something wrong?

    "creamed" or smooth cottage cheese is also a great mayo replacement. I mix it with greek yogurt for a tang. It is fantastic in tuna and in salads like macaroni, potato or egg salad. I do add a little salt though b/c you don't really realize how salty mayo is until you're using a substitute. :)

    RWH 2 month or Xtrain 90 day Undulating

    I'm getting ready to start a new long rotation. I'm trying to decide between the RWH 2 month rotation (which I've done and LOVE) and the Xtrain 90 day Undulating rotation (which I have not done). I have done many Xtrain workouts and love them too, but I haven't done the heavy lifting ones. I...

    I have a Lift like a Girl - symbol only Tee in size Large that I be willing to give to someone. I ordered a Large b/c tshirts are often so small and I like mine loose, but it it pretty true to size; too big for me. TeeSpring, who printed them is sending me another in my size, but they don't...

    about Tabatacise

    As a crossover from the favorites thread...this one is another one of my absolute favorites. Not complex, just hard work. Definitely gets the job done.

    Have you ever tried to smile?

    I mostly smile (and laugh out loud) when it is so hard it feel ridiculous. If I'm really honest, I'm always just so happy to be able to be healthy enough and strong enough to workout, and Cathe is just the person who makes it fun. :) Also, sometimes I think of funny things you ladies say while...

    Thanks for this recommendation. I ordered Relax into Stretch. I"m excited about this as my flexibility could use improvement. Also, my balance. Any recommendations in this area. I have a Bosu, but don't use it enough. My core is strong so I feel like there's something missing. I would love...

    What is happening with my heart rate pattern?

    tanyammr, I'm obviously not Cathe, but my first thought is that maybe your fitbit isn't super accurate. I know they are less accurate than a traditional heart rate monitor. I use a HRM and when I do this workout my heart rate is definitely in the anaerobic range for most of it, and I can...
