My workouts have only included running in the past few weeks since I discontinued going to my personal trainer for a few weeks.  I just could not swing the cost ($80 a week for 2, 30-minute sessions).  I would like to be able to keep that up but honestly - as long as I have been a loyal client, I was not seeing a price break any time soon.  BUT ...

What Are You Training For?

LoveHate and Week In Review – 10/7 – 10/12

This is the perfect name for this week in review because I was LAZY and did not workout for the majority of the week.  Yeah not good and I could tell I didn't workout.  You know how?  I was crabby.  Crabby feeling and crabby acting to many others this past week - NOT GOOD.  When I workout (lift and run) I am much happier.  It gives me ...

Product Review: Strava Run App Review

The time is here - I am ready to share my opinion and review abut the Strava Run app.  I started using the app around mid-August reluctantly I might add.  Why was I reluctant?  Because I was already using the Nike+ Running app and was very pleased with it.  At least I believed I was pleased with it.  Sometimes you have to try new things.  I ...
