So I now have a training plan/trainer for NYCM. The goal is to get me to November 1st healthy and in one piece. To that end, I will typically be splitting my long runs to lessen impact on my joints/bones. I will also be doing a significant am... Read more
I'm doing better. I'm drinking more water, working out more and trying to make better food choices. I've got a tentative training plan worked out, but I think I'm going to have one written specifically for me for NYCM.
This last week ha... Read more
I did it, I registered for the NYC marathon to be held November 1. This gives me 15 weeks to be ready to run for 5 hours (less if I do well). I have a couple other races coming up too, an 18 mile race at the end of August ands a Ragnar Relay a... Read more
Inertia, it's a vicious cycle. I'm tired, so it's a struggle to get up and work out, but being lazy leads to weight gain and exhaustion; which leads to less working. An object in motion vs. an object at rest. I've been at rest too long. I th... Read more
they haven't seemed to mean much lately.
Eating goals, mostly out the window. Running Goals, I did a half marathon with nearly no training in the 2 months prior. Sleep goals, ha! With all that comes a failure... Read more
It's been a long, busy month since I last blogged. I performed in 3 concerts in December, which meant lots of rehearsals. My boyfriend had back surgery an hour away right in the middle of performance weeks. I ended up working full time for the ... Read more
I realize that in addition to weekends, vacations really are not good for me. I stay up late, go out, eat whatever is around, don't drink my water...
Now I'm going to spend this week getting back into my good habits. I'm going to do the 2... Read more
While I haven't blogged in almost 2 weeks, I have been sparking. I finished my 28 day boot camp strong, been getting back into running more steadily and have been working at moderating my nutrition. This weekend was pretty terrible as far as ta... Read more
Had a nice day today with a friend. It was an amazingly gorgeous day in upstate NY and we spent some time walking along a local river walk while our girls rode bikes. Stayed up way too late last night talking to an old friend, so not much ener... Read more
I was excited to get up and run this morning, it was forecast to be a bit warmer than average and we've had some really lovely days. Unfortunately when I got up it was raining. I don't normally mind running in the rain, but my temp cutoff if ab... Read more
Not much to say today. I ate okay, did my boot camp video but otherwise took today as a rest day. Still have a pretty nasty cough, makes it hard to breathe sometimes. It's doubtful that I'm going to meet my first goal, but it will be close. Stup... Read more
Another busy but fun weekend. Friday I didn't feel great, so I did my boot camp video, my bonus video and called it a day. Saturday we spent the day cleaning for our Halloween party. I also took our dogs for a 2 mile walk. I didn't do my boot c... Read more
Another short work day today meant another day with time for a long workout. I pulled out a video I hadn't done in awhile. Good for continued weight loss (my body responds well when in continually change things up), but I'm already sore from it... Read more
Today was a good day. I ended up working only in the afternoon, so I was able to get a little extra sleep, do my toning video, an extra cardio vid and got in a short run! I also ate pretty well today-even avoided all the junk and beer at an imp... Read more
