8 Tips For Winter Running

Learn how you can continue running outdoors in the Winter time with Winter running.   Some people think of running as a fair-weather sport and hang up their running shoes in the winter.

My Race Results in the Metro Delta 5K Race

Guess what, my race results in the Metro Delta 5K were awesome!  I ran a 5K on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at Druid Hill Park in Baltimore, MD.  You are probably thinking, big WHOOP, but no seriously I ran it, hills and all, and had like a new race-time PR.  I am very excited about it. The race was hosted by my sorority sisters, the Baltimore ...

New God Flow and Week In Review – 10/14 – 10/19

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?

I was out today on a wonderful run with my pavement warrior sister.  I picked her up early (6:30 am) and we were hitting the trails by 7:00 am on the dot.  I run ahead and hit mile marker 4 and on my way back I pass her, show her the 4 sign and stop and wait for her about .75 miles back to mile marker 3.  A woman drives up in a truck, gets ...

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 ...

In The Wild and Week In Review – 9/30 – 10/6

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJt7gNi3Nr4 Oh yeah I turned it up this week.  I think I may have done some activity every day this past week.  I worked out with my personal trainer Monday and Wednesday and ran with my Pavement Warriors Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and finally rounded out the weekend with a 5 mile run on Saturday and a 2-mile ...

Feel Good and Week In Review – 9/23 – 9/29

Last week was a doozy full of activity!  I believe I was active every day last week including Saturday and Sunday.  That is a record for me and not necessarily something I want to make a habit.  Between running with my Pavement Warriors, working out with trainer and running races - I burned major calories and got it in on the pavement.  Have ...

FFFC October Fall Harvest Challenges 2013

What can I say about September?  The kiddies headed back to school and we focused our time getting our miles in the FFFC Fall Fifty Challenge.  We had other challenges going on but they did not take off as much as working to walk/jog/run 50 miles in the month of September.  It's all good though because in October we are just taking it to the ...

Time For Fall and Week In Review – 9/16 – 9/22

Fall is here and it is time to put it in GEAR!!  I did much better this past week than previous weeks with my workouts.  I still did not log as many miles as I would like because I believe I am ready for longer runs but I have excellent company on my runs which makes the shorter runs all worth it.  My running buddies go by many names such as ...

Time For Some Action Week In Review

That was my mantra this week since I am participating in the Femme Fitale Fit Club Fall Fifty Challenge.  I was determined to get out there and rack up some miles because truth be told - the furthest I have ever run EVER in a single session is 6 miles.  Yup, I admit, confess and now share it with the world.  I can sprint short distances all ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

Can you walk and chew gum at the same time?  Are you that coordinated?  If so, then you should be able to handle this workout because it has you doing multiple movements together so you have no choice but to focus and concentrate.  I did arrive a few minutes late (not like me at all) as I was slow moving climbing out of bed but I got in a good ...

Femme Fitale Fit Club Fall Fifty Challenge

Hey everybody!!!!  Long time no hear - Ha!  On top of the September health and wellness challenges for the month, we also set up an additional challenge to walk/jog/wog/run 50 miles this month.  That is less than 2 miles a day! I set a pretty aggressive goal for myself in August to complete 100 miles and failed miserably.  I thought it ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

Bulgarian, hulgarian...either way we mixed it up and worked it out.  I still can't stand the burn so I took a few breaks but that is ok, I felt myself getting stronger. REMINDER:  Real quick - we do have a new contest this month called the Road ID contest.  Enter to win a free Road ID valued at $35.  There are some folks going for the GOLD so ...

Work It Wednesday Workout

This workout was focused primarily on legs.  Everyone knows my hamstrings are TIGHT.  They stay tight.  Well today, my trainer had me working on my hamstrings which must be the weakest part of my body.  I tried not to throw evil looks as I worked through the lactic acid but I am not sure I accomplished that.  Anywho - this is the workout.  ...

End Of Time and Week In Review

  First I would like to say I hope everyone had a wonderful time at the Beyoncé concert these past few weeks.  All I have been seeing on Facebook and Instagram are amazing photos and glimpses of Beyoncé on stage in concert with her hair blowing throwing down the dance moves.  You guys looked like you had a ball and I hear it is one of ...
