With a torn MCL I haven't been able to run in months. To ease back into running, my physical therapist recommended running on the Alter G Anti-Gravity Treadmill. This allows you to run while reducing your body weight load to say 80% of your full body weight.

I put on the special airtight shorts, and stepped onto the treadmill. All of a sudden the treadmill started filling with air and there was a giant bubble from the waist down. There was a subtle lift that I could hardly notice. But increasing and decreasing the body weight percentage made a noticeable difference in how heavy my legs felt. Other than making me feel lighter, I was able to run completely normally.

It provided a great way to ease back into running and test out the load on my MCL. Would highly recommend for anyone with a recovering injury that is trying to get back at it!

Almond milk is incredibly satisfying, very easy, and low in calories. It makes a perfect treat when you are craving something sweet, and probably unhealthy, after dinner. What's not to love? 

All you need:
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond milk, found in most grocery stores
  • 2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon, to taste

In a saucepan, heat up the almond milk. Stir in the agave, vanilla and cinnamon. Done, you are ready to enjoy!

If your are a diligent athlete, you are stretching your iliotibial band, and more broadly your hip flexors, every time you go for a run or workout. The best way to keep your IT band in check is to properly stretch is all the time. But if you are like us, we neglect this area from time to time and end up with sore IT bands. So then we really need to focus on these areas. Below are the 6 best stretches to work out the kinks. Then keep doing them to prevent future injuries!

But the best way to prevent IT band injuries is to build up your glutes. Your glutes are one of your most powerful muscle groups, and building these up will reduce your likelihoods of injury. In the meantime, try these out to relieve you IT band.

It's spring and radishes are in season! Although radishes are not found in tons of recipes, they have many more things going for them than most people think. Other than providing the perfect amount of crisp and flavor to a salad, radishes are surprisingly nutritious. Radishes contain a high number of vitamins, including vitamin C, folic acid, B6, K and riboflavin. One cup of radishes contains 30% of your recommended daily Vitamin C allowance. They also contain a high amount of minerals, such as calcium, zinc, potassium and magnesium. Radishes are very low on the calorie front- one cup of sliced radishes has only about 19 calories in it. Not only that, but radishes have a high water content, making you feel more satiated.

So try out this radish recipe for a light but satisfying salad.
