What I Ate (and did) Wednesday

It’s What I Ate Wednesday time! Had my usual bagel with peanut butter and banana before going to the gym. When I got back I was in need of a snack so I made a yummy protein shake with strawberries, banana and peaches. For lunch I made chicken salad with onion and apples in it. […]

Killer workouts!

I’ve been struggling with my Asics hurting the top of my right foot. I’ve put bandaids and mole skin on when I run but it still feels bruised after. So, before I get drastic and take yet another pair of shoes back I researched ways to lace your running shoes. I found exactly what I […]

Rest day, Book Club and I’m a Handful!

It’s Monday again. It’s my rest day, I’d say 99% of the time I rest on Monday, it works out since most of what I’m involved in happens to fall on a Monday night. One of those things is Book Club! It’s a great group of friends, we actually do talk about the book, some […]

Russian Twists, oh my!

Happy Saturday! Today was long run day for me, 9 miles done! It was a nice temperature but the wind started picking up the last 4 miles. We still managed to pull out a 10:32 average pace for 9 miles! Hoping to hit the gym sometime today for just weights. Are you participating in Too […]

What I Ate (and did) Wednesday!

It’s been a while since I’ve had a WIAW post. January’s challenge needed my full attention! Breakfast was a Bagel Thin, with Peanut Butter and Banana. Do you take vitamins? Which ones? After I dropped Ally off at school I hit the gym for some cardio and weights! Got in a 50 minute workout including […]

Goals getting crushed!

A new book, new socks, and a winner!

12 miles feels awesome!

I haven’t run this far since October 27, 2012 when I did 13.1 in California! It’s been a battle since then with injuries but I’m coming back strong! It felt so good to get 12 miles today. It was slower than my “usual” pace but these days a run is a run, no matter the […]
