Thursday Things…

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…

Cramps, Stiffness, and missed runs

Cramps, Stiffness, and missed runs

Hello and welcome!  I have some random things to discuss with you today — but first a question… Question of the day — is it okay to miss runs? Cramps, Stiffness, & Missed runs I ask this Q.O.D because this whole vacation thing has really been a challenge to my training schedule.  Running in unfamiliar terrain, on a weird time schedule, with some G.I. stress due to unfamiliar foods is not what I would call ideal… but I still go…

Mental Game & Ear Pain

Mental Game & Ear Pain

For this week, I thought I’d dive deeper into the issue of mental toughness when training and also fill you in on my ear situation… Mind Over Matter After a quick second of research, I stumbled across an article from Runner’s World online discussing exactly what I struggled with on Monday’s run – the mental aspect of running. Noakes suggests, “If you want to be competitive, you have to learn how to deal with the discomfort. A lot of the…

This week, my mind has been on MOVIES!!!  It’s super hot outside, which means I’m happy inside with my AC… and NETFLIX, AMAZON, and YOUTUBE! Sugar! I watched That Sugar Film — which is essentially a documentary a kin to SuperSize Me only the narrator eats 40 teaspoons of sugar per day instead of binging on McDonald’s. Damon is the star of the film as well as the sole participant in this one man experiment.  He and his wife live off…

It’s that day of the week again, where I share random thoughts and things from my life.  Do you like these types of posts?  Should I keep doing this?  Leave a comment and let me know! Father’s Day With Sunday being Father’s Day, I can’t help but think about my own Papa.  We normally don’t do anything crazy for our father’s (my dad and my father in law) — since they don’t like the attention.  Well, at least they don’t…

Good evening all! Here are some thoughts from my Thursday Why does Pilates feel like so good? After days of strength training and running, my dabbling in pilates today felt AMAZING.  The stretching and lengthening of my tight muscles make me feel relaxed (like I do after a yoga session) but working some of my minor muscles and my abs also felt like I was actually toning… Not that yoga or stretching isn’t toning, it just doesn’t feel like a toning/strengthening…

Thoughts & Things for your Thursday

Thoughts & Things for your Thursday

I have a few thoughts and things to share today — most of which are centered around one gnawing fact:  I keep waking up at 3am and can’t get back to sleep! My issue of waking up at the Devil’s Hour hasn’t happened every night — but it has happened often enough that it’s becoming a problem.  It seems to only happen on days when I haven’t had a run or a workout — and it only seems to happen…

  Hello!!  Here are some things from my Thursday Hubby lost 8 pounds!! Randomly, my hubby weighs in and sees an 8 pound loss!  How amazing!  The only things we’ve been doing are (1) cooking foods he likes & trying out new recipes and (2) strength training together. To see such a huge weight loss is super encouraging — especially since he wasn’t “really trying”.  Meaning he’s not on a strict diet or weight loss program and he’s not on…

Here are some things I’m thinking about this Thursday (and this week)… Thirsty Thursday I’m focusing on hydrating today!  Starting with coffee and water, then moving on to ensure I drink a full 96 ounces of water today… Diet Pop has been creeping into my life again.  I know it’s terrible for you, but it’s SO GOOD and that’s bad… Other people’s marriages Our dear friends have been struggling in their marriage for as long as we’ve known them.  While…

Here are some things for this Thursday…  I like BBQ’s!  Hubby made burgers on a charcoal grill for the first time yesterday!  I completely forgot how much I love burgers cooked on a grill.  Yum! Water is the best.  After waking up with part of the Sahara in my mouth, I’m reminded of this very fact. The end of the semester grade freak out is real!  So many students coming to me with last ditch attempts at passing.  Let the…
