weekly review: the truth hurts

From July 6th of last year to around mid-October, I made huge changes in my diet and exercise routine (which had been mostly slim to none before that). I started running with the Couch to 5k app, cut out processed carbs for the most part, and lost 28 pounds, ran a 5k trail run, and… Continue reading weekly review: the truth hurts

week in review: MIA

Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for this one. It’s been like 3 weeks since I’ve posted on here, and a month since I’ve done a Week in Review post. Oops. So, what’s been going on? My staycation went well:  I did a deep clean of the apartment, one room per… Continue reading week in review: MIA

weekend workouts #16: you glow, girl

Missed some workout this week, which I’m now making up, since I’m on vacation this week (!). Little bit of excitement this weekend: We did the Black Light Run last night and had a blast!  Except for that first glow station, where the BFF got hit in the face—which is why she looks like a… Continue reading weekend workouts #16: you glow, girl

this week’s workouts

Obviously, I didn’t have enough time to update my workouts this week. I did end up going for a run last Sunday afternoon. Outside, on the trails, in the heat. Not fun. My plan stepped up my distance to 3.5 miles this week, at a relatively easy pace. (I think I did most of this… Continue reading this week’s workouts

weekend workout#14

I woke up this morning with my stomach bothering me, and the BFF was out-of-town last night, so I skipped my run today. 😦 I have so much school stuff/random life stuff to do today, I don’t think I’ll make it for a run later. Maybe, but not super-likely. Yesterday, however, we did hit the… Continue reading weekend workout#14

breaking the holding pattern

First, if you’re even the slightest bit interested in running, beating drug/alcohol abuse, adventure racing, and/or overcoming struggles in your life, you should read Running Man by Charlie Engle. Fantastic read! Review up over on my writing blog. I got a little bit derailed by pizza yesterday, (Okay, a lot derailed), but I’m eating clean… Continue reading breaking the holding pattern

weekend workouts #13

I hit all of my cardio workouts this week!  (Missed strength training on Tuesday, but I did add in push-ups yesterday, so that semi-counts, right?) I’m really liking the new My Asics training plan. Like, a lot! I think the intervals in the C25k plan helped me build up to running…but those intervals were using… Continue reading weekend workouts #13
