Got all caught up celebrating myself on Father’s Day and didn’t bother meal prepping until tonight. What was I thinking!? It can be inconvenient to prep my lunches but the benefits are well worth it. Do you meal prep? #mealpreptuesday#mealprepgoals

Depois não diga que eu não avisei!
Around the solstice last summer, I did a couple evening runs from Arlington to the Charles. I love the Charles at the sunset and I adore being out at 8:30pm and still having bright skies. To top it all off, Boston has actually had kind of an amazing spring so far (I can already hear the dissent, but bear with me) - it’s been cool, it’s been remarkably un-muggy. It’s perfect running weather. And I. Can’t. Run.
But I can’t pass up this time around the solstice. It’s my favorite time of the year. So yesterday, I got Ben to bike down from Arlington to the Charles with me to meet up with the @trail_sisters and do a lap of the River at sunset. It didn’t disappoint. By 8pm, there’s almost no traffic, minimal foot traffic, and a killer sunset.
Sigh. Summer solstice, and full moon, and river - please heal me.
WHAT ARE FAST TWITCH MUSCLE FIBERS?
There are two types of muscle fibers. FAST TWITCH AND SLOW TWITCH. Fast-twitch fibers have a high threshold and will be recruited or activated only when the force demands are greater than the slow-twitch fibers can meet. The larger fast-twitch fibers take a shorter time to reach peak force and can generate higher amounts of force than slow-twitch fibers. Fast-twitch fibers can generate more force, but are quicker to fatigue when compared to slow-twitch fibers. Strength, explosive bodyweight, and power training can increase the number of fast-twitch muscle fibers recruited for a specific movement. Fast-twitch fibers are responsible for the size and definition of a particular muscle. The characteristics of fast-twitch fibers are more suited for explosive, strength-and power-based. Resistance training with heavy weight stimulates muscle motor units to activate more muscle fibers. The heavier the weight, the greater the number of fast-twitch fibers will be recruited. Performing explosive, power-based movements, whether it is with a barbell, kettlebell, medicine ball or simply your own body weight, will recruit greater levels of fast-twitch fibers. Fast-twitch fibers will fatigue quickly, so focus on using heavy weight or explosive movements for only a limited number of repetitions for maximum effectiveness.
