What’s the Plan for the week

What are your workouts going to be this week?  I plan to hit 5 yoga classes, a 6 miler, an easy 4 miler, 2 speed workouts, 2 leg strength days + 1 upper body strength day.  Check got that down, but why I am going to do all that?  I’m hitting my week to help me get ready for the …

Rainy Saturday workout

Thank you runners for meeting me this morning!  We had an awesome turnout as well as a great run!  (Eduard I cant wait to see the garmin data!) We got a little wet!  But we all managed to make it back… For a post run meal at the Proclub bistro … I guess Eduard’s “PRO totoes” just weren’t what he …

Lenten Friday Dinner

Come spring every year my religious customs have me fasting from meat in Friday.  (I have also given up alcohol as part of my Lenten sacrifice. )  I still need to get my protein though to recover from my strength workout with my visiting friend Deb and yoga class and fuel me to run tomorrow with my runners! Tonights menu: …

Extrinsic Motivation

Demoralized!

Today I worked out with my friend Laura.  We did track together in college.  Her being a 100m sprinter/long jumper means she was ALWAYS much faster than me. Now that I haven’t done track sprints shorter than 400s, her 10x40m hill workout destroyed me…it is really embarrassing how far you can finish behind someone in 40m. We ended the workout …
