A Healthier Weekend

So, last weekend was a disaster when it came to fueling for workouts.  This weekend, I made a point of eating (mostly) healthy all weekend, and felt amazing after my 9 mile run today.  No afternoon nap needed! Friday we turned into a rest day since we planned on having a pretty busy Saturday and … Continue reading

Happy Running Day!

Today was my rest day, but instead, in honor of my 2nd favorite holiday (first being Thanksgiving) I ran glorious 3 miles.  Perfect weather, perfect run.  Getting back in the swing of things never felt so good 🙂   And of course, I did the Running Day badge…   Because I love cupcakes/muffins/cake (of the … Continue reading

Happy Friday!

Good morning and happy Friday!

Six Miles

Today was supposed to be a 10-mile day.  It didn’t happen, but 6 miles did.  I’m recovering from a mild bronchitis (and I have asthma) and still having some allergy issues…not the fastest time and there were a couple of walk breaks so I could catch my breath but I did it!  Definitely feeling like … Continue reading

What I Ate Wednesday

{i’ve been quiet over the past week because finals are coming up and it’s been a non-stop study session} Yesterday was the very first of many training runs for Mount Desert Island (MDI) in October.  The original plan started in June, but I’m just getting a head start since this spring has been slow going … Continue reading

Trigger Point Cold Roller Review

Good afternoon! Today was the first day of my half marathon training plan (I’m making it up as I go): 6 glorious miles-completed!  Everything felt good.  Just very very minimal IT band soreness between miles 5 and 6, but nothing that made me want to just stop. After the run, and after taking my car … Continue reading

Outdoor Yoga and a Lunchtime Run
