All 'Bout that Bass!

If you've read my blog, run with me, or hang with me you know at couple of things:
  • I have a proximal hamstring tear
  • I have Crohn's Disease that I regularly deny, until I can't stop crapping, and have a mouth full of canker sores.
  • I train hard, so I can heal my hammy and prevent future injuries
  • I love talking about food, nutrition, training, and running
Me at our local Fleet Feet Marathon Training Kick-off Meeting
giving a talk on General Nutrition
Lately, I've been doing everything - from eating and drinking certain foods, to training, foam rolling and stretching - to gain strength and heal my hamstring.
Did you know that strength training can help you recover 80% faster?
For my aching hammy, the first thing I did was to get a diagnosis. I live outside of Manhattan, so of course I went to the best - Dr Metzl at HSS in NYC. He told me I gotta build my bass - and now, yup, you guessed it ...
I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble

Sorry Meghan Trainor, I love your song, but I got Crohn's, I'm a runner, and train like crazy so
Yeah it's pretty clear, I am less than a size two
But I can shake it, shake it 
like I'm supposed to!

'Cause now that I do Dr Metzl's Iron Strength Workout for Runners ...
I got that boom boom that runners love to race,
You know - 
All the right junk,
in all the right place!

And while we're on the subject - take a look at some of my friends, co- runners, and co-bloggers pictures - these ain't no Photoshop, these guys are real. Some come bigger, some come smaller, but
Every inch of 'em is perfect
From the bottom to the top!
Luvuguys!

Yeah my momma she told me don't worry about your size. 
She says, exercise for a l'il more booty to just run right
And sorry thin still ain't no stick-figure, silicone Barbie doll!
but I'll tell you what I'm into 
So I can go 'head and run along:

How 'bout some Squats, Jump Squats, and Goblet Squats? Hip Heists, Lunges, and Jump Lunges? Try some Single Leg Deadlifts, and Good Mornings? And don't think for a minute that this is no "trouble", but
I'm bringing booty back!
Bringing the Elvis Face back apparently too!
Because you know I'm all about that bass,
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble
I'm all 'bout that bass, 'bout that bass
