Weekly Workout Recap 12/15-12/21

weekly workout recap

  This was a great running week! I know I run lots of miles all of the time but there was just something about this week that kept me smiling. A couple of speedy runs, an easy run and a long run which all left me with that amazing little feeling which flows from the head down to the toes that screams – […]

Weekly Workout Recap 12/1/14 – 12/7/14

weekly workout recap

I have another running analogy for you today…. Running shoes are like the gas in your car….The more you run (drive), the sooner you will wear out your shoes (run out of gas). You even know when the end is approaching. The light on your dashboard is on telling you that you only have a […]

10k Today! (Plus Workout Recap)

  I am big on last-minute race decisions. I decided Friday morning to register to run a 10k today. I don’t often run short race distances (especially 5k races, I do not enjoy them) but this 10k is only ten minutes from my house and it isn’t snowing so why not? Seems like a good time. *Monday* Pure […]

Weekly Workout Recap 10/20/14-10/26/14

weekly workout recap

  I took it real easy after last weekend’s races. It wasn’t until after Wednesday morning’s workout that I felt like myself again, ready to jump into my typical running routine. *Monday* Morning Walk & Stretch I hate walking but I knew I needed to loosen up my legs and running was definitely not on […]

Pure Barre Craving & Random Friday Stuff

So I had a craving yesterday morning and it wasn’t for what you are thinking. As you know from reading my weekly workout recaps, I have been keeping up with Pure Barre from home by following the DVD versions of the classes on what pans out to an almost every other day basis. But sometimes, like yesterday morning, I sort of miss the actual Pure Barre studio […]

weekly workout recap

So the Runner’s World Half & Festival is fast approaching. The hat trick is creeping up on me. I contemplated an ignorance is bliss approach to the race courses yet couldn’t help myself the other day and decided to check them out. Uh huh. Just as I thought. Hills. A bunch of hills. I haven’t been […]

Weekly Workouts Recap 9/8/14-9/14/14

weekly workout recap

I thought I would attempt to offer a weekly recap of my workouts since I am often asked what my routine looks like and how many miles I run on average. I never strive to hit a certain amount of miles each week nor do I plan out what each run or workout should look like. I […]

I Ran A Great Race But Not Ready For Summer To End

  I didn’t get a trophy this year but I must say, I was really pleased with the race so let’s discuss…. I got real lucky that it didn’t rain during the race. I say lucky because the drizzling on my windshield as I drove to the race suddenly reminded me that I completely forgot to bring […]

Two Long Runs, Two Salads and Off To Philadelphia

  We won’t discuss that this was one of the last weekends left of summer. So. If you recall, my running plan for the weekend was to mimic the Runner’s World Hat Trick which is coming up in October. Saturday’s Run: Since the first day of the Hat Trick will be a 5K followed by […]

Let’s Catch Up!

  Let’s start with my last Pure Barre class (for now at least) which I attended Friday morning… Fact: I do not wear makeup when I run or workout, regardless of who may see me. I would rather have uneven skin tone and appear half-asleep than breakout from makeup seeping into my pores while I sweat. So […]
