Like Clockwork (workout recap)

running shoes

  I didn’t post on Friday and actually stayed in bed a little longer than I usually do which put the rest of my morning routine, including my run, slightly behind schedule too. How ironic then when a guy in my neighborhood on his way to work hollered the following out of his car window when he […]

  A couple of things before getting to my workouts… 1) My two-year anniversary with Pure Barre was just a few days ago! I realized it when I came across this post, Why I Signed Up For Pure Barre, which I actually wrote on July 24, 2014, exactly two years ago today. I wrote that […]

My running shoe rotation fell off course this week which sounds totally weird if you don’t run but since most of you reading are runners like me, you will probably appreciate the conversation we are about to have.

It’s quite possible that my body noticed a return to my usual running after about ten days of reducing mileage/cross-training. Thankfully both my foot issue and hip issue quickly resolved themselves so […]
