Weekly Workout Recap 12/14-12/20

This weekend marked 4 weeks post-marathon, but honestly it feels like my race was 3 months ago. It’s important to keep that in perspective though, especially when I start feeling frustrated about where I am mentally and physically with my running. One month is really not that long considering the 4 months of hard training […]

At-Home Workouts for the Running Off-Season

As you may know from my recent posts or instagram, lately I have been backing off a bit from running and focusing on trying out some different types of workouts. I don’t have a gym membership so all of my workouts need to take place at home. I thought I would share some of the types of workouts I […]

Pre-Run Glute Activating Exercises

A few people have asked about the exercises I do before a run. I usually use some glute activating exercises as part of my warm-up, depending on what kind of workout I am doing that day. This is my current collection of exercises, and I usually choose abut 3-5 before I head out for my […]

Plyometric Strength Workout And Supplemental Exercises For Runners

So far this week my workouts have been a bit different than usual. I will probably end up running about the same as I usually do, but instead of taking an hour strength training class at the gym and dong the Iron Strength workout, along with core work a few other days, I added alot […]

Workouts + Meal Planning and Prep 3/22-3/28

This was one of those weeks that felt like it dragged on forever even though I only worked 4 days. Not sure why, but I think part of it is the anticipation of spring, spring break, and moving over the next few weeks. The food was nothing special (except eating at Flemings- that’s always amazing!) and the workouts […]

Tried It Tuesday: Pilates and Reflex Fitness

Last week I had the opportunity to try a few more classes through ClassPass. I realized that my membership would be over on 2/26 so I started planning out a schedule to make the most of it. The weather last week made things a little tricky. I had signed up for a cycle class last Tuesday but […]

Top 5 Items For Your Home Gym

Today’s Friday Five Topic is “What’s in my gym bag?”. Well, I don’t have one! I usually walk into the gym with my keys and phone, and possibly a pair of headphones and that’s it. So I can’t really do a Friday Five with that! Instead, I thought I would share my top 5 home […]

That Time I Felt Like I Ran Another Marathon

No, I didn’t run another marathon after Philadelphia, but last week I sure felt like I did. After taking a full week off from all forms of exercise besides some light yoga, I got back to some easy running and workouts last Monday. I hadn’t been to my beloved Body Pump class since the first […]

Back To School Strength Circuit

As I have started training for my next marathon I am still trying to incorporate strength workouts when I can. I’m no longer taking body pump classes because I feel like they are pretty tough on my body and take up a little more time than I would like. I’m trying to focus everything on […]
