I intended to take a short blogging break over the holidays, but my break went on longer than planned after my grad classes started last week.  I spent the first half of the week feeling completely overwhelmed by the amount of work I had to get done in just the first week.  How was I [...]

A short running break and P90X3

With the holidays coming up, I haven’t been able to find much time for blogging – especially now that this guy is getting busier by the day. It’s hard to believe it, but he’s going to turn 1 in just a few days! I cannot seem to figure out where the past year has gone.  [...]

Turkey Trot 5K race recap and the Winter 100 Challenge

IMG_7841

Last week, we ran the informal Turkey Trot 5K in our neighborhood on Thanksgiving morning.  It’s not an official race, but it has become a fun neighborhood tradition over the past few years.  Last year, I “ran” the race while 30-something weeks pregnant and it took me about 37 minutes.  Not terrible considering that I [...]

What I love lately

Energy Bits winner and what’s next

Contained and happy

The winner of the Energy Bits/Recovery Bits is Pam Gordon! I hope you enjoy your bits as much as I do. The Recovery Bits saved me again this week.  Both boys had colds with coughs, fevers, and runny noses.  I took my Recovery Bits (12 bits, 3 times a day) every day.  Despite being covered [...]

Heart rate training, shoes, and veggies

IMG_4975

This weekend I did something I haven’t done for months – I ran without my heart rate monitor.  It was liberating and it was glorious not to hear my Garmin’s obnoxious chime that my heart rate was too high. I had a realization this past week when I was getting increasingly frustrated with how slow [...]
