week in review: wildlife + workouts

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. This past week was kind of a repeat of the week before.

Someone… Continue reading week in review: wildlife + workouts

week in review: 43 flights of…hills

Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review. I tried to take it (a little bit) easy, since this week was spring break. (Cue skeptical laughter here.) The spring time change always really messes up my sleep schedule for a while, so I didn’t sleep much on Sunday night.… Continue reading week in review: 43 flights of…hills

my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

Seriously, y’all. What happened to all my motivation of a year ago? I ran four times a week, I ate healthy, I was totally focused on being healthier. Fast forward to now, and it’s all I can do to finish like 5 things on my to-do list, much less everything. Ha. As if. I’ve been… Continue reading my low-key half-marathon “training plan”…a.k.a. “laziness keeps making me start over”

weekly workouts #4

I need an accountability partner. In my eating choices. My workouts. Life. That’s kind of the point of these posts: I’m basically physically lazy, and if I don’t keep myself accountable, I’ll totally slack off and slop around the apartment. Which is kind of what happened since last fall. I was doing great:  running regularly,… Continue reading weekly workouts #4

weekly workouts #3

This week has been pretty “meh” as far as workouts go. In other words, I’ve been feeling pretty lazy. Sigh… Monday:  worked 14 hours or so for a total of 13,282 steps (6.29 miles). Tuesday:  Holiday. Obviously. Wednesday:  worked 12.5 hours for a total of 11,743 steps (5.56 miles). Thursday:  strength training + ran 2… Continue reading weekly workouts #3

weekly workouts #2

This week, I’m pleased to say that I hit 3 out of 4 of my planned cardio workouts, and all four of my strength training sessions! I wasn’t doing anything crazy—pretty low-key—but it feels good to have achieved some consistency this week. Here’s what the week looked like: Monday: Worked 14 hours, 12,583 steps (5.96… Continue reading weekly workouts #2

when a mile feels like a marathon

Six months ago, I ran six miles like it wasn’t a big deal. (Not like super fast or anything, but I ran it without stopping or passing out.) Then I was injured for 3 months. Then I started trying to run again, and life and laziness kept getting in the way. So, here I am… Continue reading when a mile feels like a marathon
