Tummy Pain & A Weigh In!

Tummy Pain & A Weigh In!

I’m not dead!!   There’s looking on the bright side!   Now for the Tummy Pain bit Apparently I had some sort of infection in my digestive tract… how gross is that??! I’m still undergoing testing — but here’s the scoop. Saturday, Hubby and I were having a great date day!  We went to the gym, we took a nap, we watched a football game, and we went for a late dinner/movie.  Halfway through dinner, I just had a weird…

Weigh in This week’s weigh-in marks exactly 1 week after starting a Crossfit-type-group-Boot Camp – Class.  (*Talk about a tongue twister*) This week would also mark nearly a month since I completed my marathon training — meaning a month with no serious running training going on!  I’ve decided to take a break to avoid burn out and to avoid icy roads this winter.  The Boot Camp class is a great way to challenge myself in a new way while still getting…

You read the title correctly — I took a bootcamp class last night!  And DIDN’T DIE!   Why? If you’ve been following this blog for a few weeks, you’ll notice I’m floundering with the Post Marathon Blues.  Running a marathon was a huge goal which I previously thought was unachievable — or at least something I’d have to work on for a few more years.  Now that I’ve checked the box next to that goal, I’ve had to re-evaluate and…

November Plank Challenge

November Plank Challenge

Happy “It’s Almost Christmas” Everyone!!   It’s November 1st, so I can officially begin being annoyed by all things Christmas!  Yay!   Still Struggling I’m still trying to figure out what’s next for me now that I’ve ran a full marathon.  Sunday marked 2 weeks post marathon, so I’m considering running again — but I’m also considering switching to something like Crossfit or more traditional strength training. My main health/fitness goal is to be swift and strong — like a…
