Running fast vs. running long

Today’s topic: Running fast vs. running long. I tell people all the time, “I would rather run a marathon than run a 5K.” And I’m sorta serious. I feel like running a marathon, while I’m still a bundle of nerves leading up to it, is really one of the most zen experiences one can have.…

You can be fat and lazy as long as your friends are not

You know someone really gets you when all you have to do is send this text: “I’m fat and lazy.” That was my appeal for help to Scott on Monday. I’ve been so busy with various work projects that I haven’t had time to work out. Which I realize is absolutely an excuse. No matter…

Doctor’s orders

So, I went to see an ortho doctor this morning about my foot injury. And sure enough, there’s a small fracture on my third metatarsal bone. The good news is, the X-rays from a week ago show that new bone has already started to form, and the X-rays from today show an even bigger healing.…

Back on the couch

Finally, I was starting to feel “normal” again for the first time since February. Normal in the sense of getting myself back on track with the workouts, that is. After I decided to put on a show at The Diamond restaurant and then spend 3 lovely days at the five-star resort otherwise known as Carolinas…

Getting my strength back

So, I’ve been working out like the old days again. And I have to say, it feels fantastic. The past couple of weeks I’ve been hitting the gym every day, going hard core on the stairclimber and even running on the treadmill. And yesterday I ran 3 miles in the 103 degree heat! I had…

Two steps forward, one step back

So, yesterday I had a big day planned. Was going to go to the gym for the second time since my fainting incident. But Β I didn’t make it as planned. In fact, I didn’t do anything as planned. Woke up with my face swollen around where my stitches had been and feeling miserable. I called…

Healthy eating kickstart

So, I’m on a diet. Not a “real” diet. I say that because it only lasts 3 days. I heard about it on the Today Show and I thought it’d be a great start to this healthy eating concept I’d like to follow. So, I suckered Anil into doing it with me, and I realized…

Meet my newest live-in houseguest

Not even two weeks in, and I’m already in love with P90x. Sounds cheesy, but I feel like Tony Horton shows up once a day to kick my ass for an hour or two, and he’s the cheapest personal trainer I’ve ever had. I was warned that he was annoying, and he is slightly, but…

I haven’t done this since high school …

So, I took the fitness test for P90x on Saturday. It was kinda funny thinking back to high school days – and doing some of these same things for fitness tests for P.E. class. I will say this test was a little harder than I anticipated – which I am happy about! If it had…
