It's a new day

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      1 comments

I've been going to the gym quite infrequently as of late. If I'm lucky, once a week. It's a little embarrassing. But today is a new day. And more so, it's a new year. I went to the gym today fully prepared to have to wait for a machine beca... Read more

ING NYC Marathon

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      1 comments

I always have my ups and downs with working out and running, but after watching the ING NYC Marathon on Sunday and being on the subway with someone who had just completed the marathon was truly inspiring. Since I started running a year ago my e... Read more

Running Again

Thursday, October 13, 2011      2 comments

So after being a member of a new gym for 13 days I *finally* made it there. I actually got out of work at a decent hour to get my butt over to the gym, and it felt good! My running isn't where it was a few months ago (last time I've really run... Read more

Whew, out of shape!

Sunday, October 02, 2011      0 comments

So it's definitely been a while since I've worked out, and boy is it obvious. Beside the indicator that I couldn't run a continuous mile (let alone a couple of miles which I had been running before my impromptu hiatus) but after doing some abs ... Read more

It's been awhile

Saturday, October 01, 2011      1 comments

It's been almost 4.5 months since my last blog entry, and it's probably been about as long since I've tracked anything on SparkPeople. I ran my last 5k nearly 4 months ago and probably haven't run much since then. I played recreational soccer ... Read more

Ran a true 10 minute mile

Thursday, May 19, 2011      3 comments

I just got off the treadmill and I am proud to say that I ran EXACTLY 3.5 miles in EXACTLY 35 minutes, kind of creepy how well that math works out. I haven't run since my 5k on Sunday and I was really feeling it. Running just totally relaxes m... Read more

My First 5k !!!

Monday, May 16, 2011      6 comments

Yesterday I ran my first official 5k!! It was such an exciting day. It was for Poplar Springs Run For the Animals and was raising money for animals (obviously) and to teach people about veganism. Which was awesome. I got tons of free goodies... Read more

I ran 3.1 continuous miles

Wednesday, May 11, 2011      11 comments

The title says it all. Today, for the first time ever, I ran 3.1 miles without stopping. Without a little "catch my breath break". Without a little "let me slow my pace down so I can run harder". Without a little "Accidently hitting the stop... Read more

Sunday, May 08, 2011      5 comments

Especially my mom! My family came up to New York today to celebrate Mothers Day in the Big Apple. We had an amazing brunch and then walked around Central Park for a few hours. It was a truly lovely day. The weather is PERFECT. Not too... Read more

Running outside

Saturday, May 07, 2011      8 comments

In order to prepare for my first ever 5k (next Sunday, eek!!) I ran outside today for the first time in months. I would love to run outside more often, especially now that it's nice out, but it's a lot more convenient to run on a treadmill at t... Read more

Run run run

I've been switching up my workouts a lot when I go to the gym, running, spinning, aerobic type classes, etc. and today was a running day. Oh I love the running days. For the first time ever I ran/walked/jogged/sprinted 3.1 miles (3.15 actually... Read more

Fall down 7 times, Get up 8

Tuesday, April 26, 2011      2 comments

It has taken me awhile to get back up after my recent fall but I'm making progress. I just need to find a balance as opposed to what I'm doing now which is hit the gym hard for a week and then get burnt out for a week, or however long each rota... Read more

I woke up this morning at 6am (earlier than I do for work during the week) so you know it has to be for something special. I volunteered today at The Concern Spring Run (
ingrun/) which is a really great cause th... Read more

I'll admit I've been quite MIA lately. I haven't blogged in awhile, and while I go back and forth with blogging, I had been recently blogging a lot because I had been having a lot of success on the treadmill. Once the success stopped, so did t... Read more

MAJOR Accomplishment (and defined calves)

Monday, March 07, 2011      3 comments

So today I went to the gym. I had mixed feelings about going. I didn't go yesterday and could actually feel the emptiness in my body from not running the day before (WHAT IS THIS?!). But I worked late and didn't want to go. But since I had a... Read more
