Back In The Saddle – SOF Boot Camp, Week 3, Day 3

I must be a glutton for punishment.  I am signed BACK up for boot camp and we just completed week 3 of a 4-week 1-hour session.  This week was BRUTAL.  I can't lie.  We did more sprints, mile runs, jumping jacks, 1000 abs, squats, lunges, did I say jumping jacks than any top fit athlete, let alone a regular every day Joan like ME has gotten ...

Why Oh Why Runkeeper?

I ran with my Runkeeper last weekend around my neighborhood for a little over 3 miles.  I used both my Runkeeper and Nike+ allowing the music to play through Runkeeper.  I hooked up my Wahoo strap to detect my heart rate and paired it with Runkeeper.  Runkeeper confirmed it was connected and bingo I was set! I stepped outside my house in the ...

#Thanksgiving Damage

If you have time to sit back and reflect what type of damage did you do this Thanksgiving?  Did you throw caution into the wind?  Did you just say "2 peas in a bucket.....you know the rest"?  Welp I will admit that these are MY confessions.  I own up to what I do and it doesn't make me a bad person.  Makes me human.   I know what needs ...
