Time to bring back the high-low posts.
High workout of the week: Both trail runs (2 miles on Tuesday, 2.5 on Wednesday). I’ve been doing an out and back route during my lunch break. The first half of this route is completely uphill. It is a really tough workout, especially since I do Insanity workouts [...]
This week has been shaping up to be really busy, but with all fun things. Yesterday, I was having major stomach issues. I was in too much pain to do my scheduled speed workout, so instead I did an easy 30 minutes on the stationary bike. After work I met my friend Kate for a [...]
This is the first week I’ve started to feel the challenge of the holidays: meaning maintaining a healthy diet through several weeks of festivities. The main events in the last week have included: my office holiday party, a weekend visiting my friend, a latke dinner (latkes have to be one of the most delicious yet [...]
I still can’t get over how fast the seasons have changed. It seems like yesterday I was waking up at the crack of dawn on my long runs to avoid 100* temps, and I was dressed in a tank top in shorts.
Yesterday on my run I wore a jacket for the first time! But [...]
Today some rain hit the DC area and it looks like it is finally cooling down. Saturday night, however, I enjoyed the summer weather. First step: breaking out a sundress and flip flops.
Second step: House party with corn hole. I haven’t played corn hole since college but Neil and I dominated and [...]
Now that I finished with my 18 miler, I only have to increase my mileage on my long run ONCE more! It’s crazy that the race is coming up so quickly.
Last night Neil and I ordered some pizza for my carby pre-run meal, and my brother and his fiancé came over to watch HBO [...]
This weekend had the potential to be very boring. I was fasting from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset for Yom Kippur. Marathon training already messes up my social life quite a bit, but with the holiday this meant two nights of not doing anything. However, after fasting all day Saturday I decided I wanted to [...]
I have a lot I want to talk about today – including a new vegan restaurant I discovered. But first, a quick review of how I did on my August goals.
For short runs, maintain an 8:30 min/mile pace. I did try to run my short runs faster, and sometimes hit this pace. Strength training [...]
After a long day of traveling and work, I was exhausted Friday evening. But Neil and I had restaurant week reservations at Zaytinya and a party to go to, so out we went.
Restaurant Week in DC is a week-long event, where restaurants offer a three course meal for $35.10. My favorite restaurant in [...]
Saturday Play: Yoga The last 24 hours have been awesome. I think the best part of the Healthy Living Summit was meeting so many inspiring bloggers. All the girls I met were nice, interesting and passionate about healthy living.
Core Yoga (sponsored by Subway) last night was fun We all got free yoga mats! [...]
