RAPOG on the go

Boston Marathon 2016

So, I ran the Boston Marathon. On April 18th. A month ago. I've never been quick to recap my races here. This one asked for even more time as I think, deep down, I didn't really want to get back to it... until now. It's time to tell you about this race which kept its promises on one thing at least: running Boston is an unforgettable adventure.


#RAPOGWARRIOR S02E03: Pilates

Do you know Pilates? I've been practicing it for more than 5 years now. It's my favorite strength training activity. But when I mention Pilates to people, I often get a blank stare as a response. People heard about it but don't really know what it really is. The best way to find out is to try it. So, get ready, I'll show you a few exercices, in this new video.


#RAPOGWARRIOR S02E02: Running workout - hill repeats

I'm back to share with you one of my favorite workouts: the hill repeats. As you can tell, it's about hill training. It's not an easy workout but I do really appreciate it. Hard but rewarding, and great to spice things up! Come with me on one of my hill repeats workout.


#RAPOGWARRIOR S02E01: Boston Marathon, by the numbers

Finally! Yes, I FINALLY come back to you with the 1st video of season 2 of my #rapogwarrior adventures. As you know, season 2 is about the Boston Marathon. I thought it would be nice to start with a little presentation of this marathon, and I decided to do it by the numbers.


Running safely in the countryside

Since back to France, we are living in the countryside. Nature, calm, space. All of that is true. Still, running there is not as peaceful as we may think it is. Narrow and windy roads, no roadsides. That's also part of the running in the French countryside experience. So, yes, it's beautiful out there, but not necessarily safe. To feel as secure as possible while running, I came up with new running habits.
