End of February Weekly Recap

Another week has come and gone, and today is the last day of February! I always find March to be a bit of a letdown because I expect it to magically get warmer but usually it’s still pretty cold and sometimes there is even snow. Hopefully yesterday’s springlike weather is a sign of what’s to […]

The Return of Thinking Out Loud: This Week’s Complaints

It’s been so long since I did a thinking out loud post that I actually looked back and the last time was December 24th which means it’s been over two months! I usually save these kinds of posts to write the night before (rather than draft it over the weekend) and I just don’t have the […]

Weekly Recap: A Hint of Spring

How is it Monday again already? It feels like I was just writing last week’s weekly recap of my workouts. However, when I look back over the past week it actually has felt rather long, maybe because we have experienced all four seasons over the past few days it seems like. Lately I am constantly […]

Is Stretching Worth Your Time? Things to Consider When Deciding If You Need to Stretch

Last week I shared some of the feedback from my session at the UVA speed clinic, and one of the points I learned was that I have enough flexibility and do not need to stretch. Even my hip flexors, which I always feel  like I need to stretch. Almost two years ago I wrote a post […]

One Week Without Coffee (5.5 to go…)

Last Tuesday night, hours before Ash Wednesday, I made the (possibly crazy) decision to give up coffee for Lent. There was no “last cup” to savor and no time to mentally prepare. I’m not sure if it being a last minute decision help or hurt the situation, but once I made it through day one I […]

I think I have reached the point in winter where I am starting to count down the days until spring while also realizing that the weather is just extremely unpredictable and it’s pretty much impossible to plan out any sort of workout schedule. Typically I will look at the forecast for the next three days […]

What I Ate And Did On Monday

Rather than just show you my food from Monday, I thought I would also talk about my schedule on a typical weekday. I am always hesitant to write posts like this but when others do it I find it really interesting to hear about how they spend their day. Over the past year I have […]

Weekly Workout Recap and My Worst Run in Awhile

It’s Monday morning which means it’s time for a recap of last week’s workouts! There was nothing particularly special about them, although I did get to run outside for the first time in 2 weeks. Oh, but we are expecting more snow tomorrow…. Anyway, let’s not think about that! I did have a pretty terrible […]

Monthly Check-In: January 2016

January has been over for several days already and I’m not gonna lie- I was happy to see it go! It went by faster than usual (probably because of my time in Florida and the blizzard) but I always feel like January is the toughest month to get through. As I did last year, I […]
