I've been concentrating a lot lately on exercise. Boot camp boot camp boot camp! Active recovery! Spring = running! But the fact of the matter is I've been back at boot camp for two months (as of Friday) and I haven't lost any weight. ... Read more

This morning was one of those classes where I left looking like I had gone for a swim because I was so sweaty. My shoulders and chest are pretty sore from yesterdays push-up-alooza. I didn't think my chest ever really got sore, but it turns out ... Read more

If someone asked me to pick my two least favorite exercises of all time, they would be pushups and triceps. So imagine the look on my face when I learned that this morning's class would be all pushups, triceps, and shoulders (my 3rd weakest part... Read more

This morning was the kind of class I enjoy. Instead of everyone doing the same thing at the same time, it was a go-at-your-own-pace thing. The challenge was to do at least 100 of each exercise but really he wanted 200 for the advanced boot campe... Read more

When I first started running several years ago, I went all Goldilocks and rejected 8 million pairs of shoes until I finally found my beloved Saucony Kinvaras. I had those, then the Kinvara 2, then the Kinvara 3 … and I was absolutely 100% loyal ... Read more

A funny thing happened over the weekend. I went for a run and it was ... easy. I used to run a lot. And not do much else, truth be told. And every run felt like I was trudging through mud. I'm not fast, and I never will be, and I'm OK with... Read more

Oh, my. I honestly cannot recall the last time I was this sore from exercise. The big ones at the moment are my abs and my butt. It aches when I cough or laugh or sit or stand or do all sorts of other things that are required for dai... Read more

OK, I'll admit it. There's definitely something demotivating about being the worst at basically everything in boot camp. Yesterday, Tom wanted us to do 50 sit ups and then run a lap. I was on MAYBE #25 when people started running past me. To hea... Read more

Yesterday's boot camp class was a lot of legs. This morning I woke up starting to feel the telltale signs of DOMS. My legs are aching and my butt is sore. But off to boot camp I went, and today it was almost all upper body. We did so many push u... Read more

This morning was ROUGH! Last week I started off well, and then I got sick. So I skipped boot camp Thursday and Friday, and then I went to Philadelphia for the weekend and while I did a fair amount of walking it wasn't exactly strenuous exe... Read more
So Much for Lazy Tuesday

Yesterday I skipped boot camp because my stomach was still a bit upset, but I did 30 minutes on the elliptical. I thought that'd be it, and that I'd go back to boot camp today and yesterday would just be written off as a pretty minimally active ... Read more
