How To Find A Fitness Friend

If you need staying accountable with your workouts, perhaps you need to find a fitness friend.

Friday Five: Off To The Races

Hi everybody.  Checking in with my Five Friday topic "Off To The Races" which fits right in with my half marathon update.  Last time I checked in I let you all know I had not done a hill of beans of training.  That was for a few reasons including a bum knee and horrible Maryland weather with record amounts of snowfall.  With all of that ...

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 ...

Burn Your Fat With Intervals – Thursday Run

I am starting a new series to give you a workout or information pertaining to running.  Keep me honest if I fall off.  As you can imagine - regular life can be hectic but since running is a significant part of my workout routine - makes sense I dedicate a segment of this blog on the subject where YOU the reader can expect regular content.  So ...

Fun Run

Never in a million years would I think I would consider running multiple miles at the crack of dawn FUN!  I mean who wants to get up before 0:dark thirty to run outside in the dark with wildlife running around here and there?  I took cross country track my freshman year in High School simply because my best friend joined (she could run) and I ...

All I Do Is Win

Honestly - that is not true.  I do not always win or am number one in everything I do.  Sometimes I stop trying or I come in dead last.  But either way when it comes to this fitness thing I do not always feel as if I have to "win" against someone.  I typically compete with myself.  I test myself to see how far I can push a weight or how ...
