Last Week’s Workouts + Vacation Week!


On Friday I mentioned being excited about a summer weekend with a run at the beach. Well, the weather was definitely “summer” in that the forecast went from sunny to random downpours both Saturday and Sunday. At the last minute Saturday morning, I decided to run by the house instead of the beach because the […]

Workouts From Last Week


It’s amazing what early sunrises, warm weather, and the beach can do for my running mood. I’m so much more likely to run longer, more often, and even faster in the summer although I’m hoping that come fall, I still want to run as much as I do during the warmer months. While so many […]

New Running Shoes + An Extra Run (weekly workout recap)

After my run on Saturday, I decided that I had to go to Runner’s Edge to try on new running shoes. Like I said last week and as I said to the girl who helped me, I really didn’t want to open up this can of worms. I’m not the easiest when it comes to […]

I Think I Want New Running Shoes (weekly workout recap)

I don’t even want to have the running shoe conversation. Nope, don’t want to go there. Technically, I do not need new running shoes. My Brooks Ghosts 14’s are not burned out just yet. But. I don’t love them. There, I said it. The Ghost 14’s lack the level of cushion that I prefer and […]

Last Week’s Workouts (3 Runs, Walks, Melissa Wood Health)


The weather keeps bouncing between spring-like and back to winter. I was in Atlantic Beach quickly on Friday. I just had to stop by the ocean and although it’s not my beach running season quite yet, I definitely got excited. Another month or so?! Last Week’s Workouts: I don’t have much to report out of […]

Lululemon Finds + Weekly Workout Recap


Oh, hi. How do we feel about the time change? It will take me a few days to get used to it but overall, I’m happier because we are closer to spring and summer! Before I get to a few Lululemon finds of interest, just a quick chat about my thoughts on running once last […]

Last Week’s Workouts (some in Florida, some at home)


I can tell you this – I really miss sitting on the balcony first thing in the morning in the warm Florida air before doing my workouts. Three of my workouts took place in Florida last week. As I had mentioned, I did not bring my running shoes (and very rarely do take running shoes […]

I’m so happy to be off from work today! Listen, I really like my job but there’s no denying that the extra day off makes such a difference to the weekend. Anyway, here’s a quick look at last week’s workouts. Nothing overly exciting to report but at least the workouts happened! The weather has been […]

Doing What I Like (weekly workout recap)

Long Beach

A few notes before getting to last week’s workouts: – My son makes fun of me for using 1 lb weights for pilates and 3lb weights for other workouts. He likes to tell me that he sees women in the gym using heavier weights. And I like to tell him – that’s nice for them, […]

NEED To Run (weekly workout recap)


I didn’t run for almost two weeks. At first, I didn’t mind but OH BOY was I itching to run by the weekend! I’m pretty sure that the most time off I’ve had from running in ten years is two weeks total – that was in 2018 after I dropped the shampoo bottle on my […]

Booster Shot + Running Mood (weekly workout recap)

New York weather

Last week was short yet a long one! Some notes before getting to my workouts: Booster Shot: I got my booster shot last Sunday. It wasn’t too bad but I did take off on Monday from any type of workout. Running Mood: My mood for running returned after a week of not really feeling like […]
