Stairs are not my friend today

And it’s probably because I haven’t been good about my mid-week runs. But then I did something else to screw everything up. I had another personal trainer session at the gym bright and early Monday morning. My quads were still a bit sore from my long run the day before, but nothing out of the ...

Upper body training day

Upper body training day
At least, that’s kind of how it turned out. So I didn’t mention it last time, but last week as part of my new gym initiation package they gave me a free fitness assessment session with a personal trainer. It was actually kinda neat. The PT I got was also a triathlete, and we talked ...

Day 2 extended vacay 2

Day 2 extended vacay
More soreness ensued this morning. Got up bright and early-ish at 8am and made it out the door for a longer run! I haven’t done anything over 6 miles since the end of December, so I was quite looking forward to today. Except my innards weren’t. My goodness, who knew one month of not running ...

Day 1 extended vacay – restarting

Day 1 extended vacay - restarting

Technically, I’m unemployed right now since the new gig doesn’t start till next week, but “funemployment” is not really a good term to use….there is nothing fun about unemployment and I know first hand from a 6-month period some years back. Those were dark days indeed. ...

“High elevation training”

…of the snowboarding varietal :D I just spent a glorious 4 days in Lake Tahoe with some friends for Christmas. When we weren’t busy gorging ourselves on food and hot chocolate, we hit up the slopes for some of that epic fresh Sierra pow. It snowed the day we arrived and the day we left, ...

Day 7

Day 7
of no training. Never thought I’d say this, but I kind of miss running. My knee is feeling mostly better now. Gonna head to spin today and make sure my heart still works and wake those legs up. Hungry Runner Girl says she likes to wait till she recovers from an injury, and then wait ...

It was probably something I ate…

It was probably something I ate...
First day back in spin class after almost a month-long hiatus. Blame it on training/meetings. The research park my office is in offers lunchtime spin classes 3 times a week, so I guess I really don’t have an excuse to not go….(in my defense, Thursday lunch is reserved for running, Friday is usually wfh day, ...

Waking up sore = Good

I love those mornings after a good workout where I try to get out of bed and everything just hurts. Sunday morning it was my calves, and this morning my shoulders/arms were feeling it. Since I’m now in tapering mode, I’ve decided it’s a good time to cram in more cross training :D Aside from ...
