Consistent

This has been a good, solid weel. My goal this week was to get all my P90X workouts in, plus some extra exercise at lunch. I did. After my vacation next week I have to get back into serious run training. I will be doing a half marathon before the end of the year and …

WAY too hot!

I really, really want to start running… I need to get back out there and log some miles BUT it is too hot!!!  I can’t even bare to walk from my car to my office. I normally do not mind some heat, but this is ridiculous. My workouts are going to have to be inside …

Juicy

I had another successful juicy breakfast – this time it was more green than it was yesterday. The beet I used was white (I was worried it was a large radish at first!) and I used lots of spinach and a kiwi. It was really good and refreshing. The only unfortunate part is that after …

Power breakfast

I started the day today with some apple-beet-carrot-celery juice. I have to say it was REALLY good freshly juiced. I have read that the juice does taste better right away than it does after it sits but I figured it would not be a big deal… I think it is.  I was worried that I …

Tony and Gaga

I am back home from  a week of travel. I feel lazy and bloated despite trying to eat right while in Boston. I think there is just so much sodium in everything that my body just cannot lose the excess water fast enough. I was so busy today that I barely got down my water …

It has been a good day. I woke up, had some coffee and headed to the gym. I planned on 30 minutes on the elliptical and I luckily got there in time to get the last one! Most of the equipment was taken. The elliptical that was left was the one in the middle of …

This is it!

I have had two days of lounging… a body at rest stays at rest! I did 5 miles around Lake Lanier on Saturday morning and nothing since. I need to get my butt in gear. In my defense I had to get ready to go out of town for a business trip this week. I …

Running Club fun

The Tryon Running Club is getting ready to gear up for some serious training. Scarlette and Katie’s race The Ache Around the Lake is October 2nd. It is a fund raiser for the local hospital and a great run. I am going to help with training runs around the lake leading up to the run. …

Another good morning

I headed out early again today for a run at the park. I got there at 5:45AM and started off. The plan was to run slow but consistent. I felt good and my new shoes are finally starting to feel comfortable. I went to a running store for a gait analysis and was recommended some …
