Back To Running (weekly workout recap)


I’m totally back to running after that brief week with my hamstring bothering me. I mean it when I say that I never run with any sort of aches or pains so for me to have said my hamstring didn’t feel right, means it really didn’t feel right. But I’m all better now and hey, […]

My Hamstring Is Better! (weekly workout recap)


The last week feels like a really long blur but I’m happy to report that my hamstring is much better! It turned out to be a full week without running for me, which is really fine – I’m grateful that I gave my hamstring a chance to heal from whatever was bothering it, and that […]

I Know When To Stop Running (weekly workout recap)


I’m so glad that I’m the type of runner who knows when to stop running. In Saturday’s run class, the instructor suggested I start the first speed section at 8.0 — that’s fast for me at the start of a workout and I should have known that. However, I went with what he said because […]

Lifetime In Boca + Finally Tried A Run Class!


I have two important things to discuss before listing my workouts from last week! Lifetime in Boca While in Florida last week, I went to Lifetime in Boca Raton. I was last there 10 years ago! At the time, I was a Lifetime member here in New York. Now, as an Equinox member, it was […]

Quick Look At Last Week’s Workouts


Hello! I don’t have much to add beyond the workout recap details listed below. In Friday’s post, I mentioned that last week was a blur. I wasn’t kidding! Something about it felt very blended together, which is likely why I have nothing to add beyond what I noted below each day. Last Week’s Workouts Last […]

10 Years Ago + Weekly Workout Recap

fitness mag meet and tweet

Just a few random thoughts from my workouts last week: I asked myself if I was running enough and then quickly said – running enough for what? This is literally my internal battle for five years now since I drastically cut back from high mileage and never returned to it. I like my lower running […]

January Message + Last Week’s Workouts


Happy 2023! Welcome to the new year and all the fitness and diet messaging overwhelming all of our social media feeds. If January’s diet and fitness hoopla bother you too, then you will appreciate the January message put out by Equinox. I knew I was in the right fitness club! Waiting for January to start […]

I Made It To Yoga! (weekly workout recap)


I finally made it to yoga! As of Friday’s post, I was still saying that I wanted to get to yoga but still couldn’t figure out how to fit it into my schedule. The reason I have a hard time getting to a yoga class at Equinox is that the yoga options are later in […]

A Runner Who Does Other Things (weekly workout recap)


Someone asked me the other day how many miles I run per week. I had a very quick reply to that question. It’s not about weekly mileage for me, especially right now. I’m a runner who does other things too. I really like the other things. I still identify as a runner and I’m so […]

Last Week’s Workouts at Equinox


Another nicely varied week of workouts in the books! I ran a little more last week and tried a new-to-me 60-minute barre class on the Thursday Equinox class schedule. This week I plan to try a TRX class! My pilates instructor teaches it and said it’s perfect for me. I will report back about it […]

Thanksgiving Week Workouts in Review


The Monday after a long holiday weekend (especially Thanksgiving!) is always a bit strange. Not only is today weird, but last week also seems like a total blur! Good thing I write down my workouts after they happen so I can put together this post. Did you shop the Black Friday sales? Are we supposed […]
