Ouchie, Sun Burn

Yesterday I spent my afternoon at the pool.  Some how I managed to miss the top of each leg, kind of by my inner thigh when I applied sunscreen.  I got a little pink.  It wasn’t really bothering me…but then I went for a run. My shorts were rubbing against it, so it was very…

Revised Schedule

Alright, so seeing it’s Monday and I didn’t actually go for my run today as planned, I figured I would revise my schedule for the rest of the week.  I didn’t run today because it was about 96 degrees out and even going to the gym sounded dreadful in this heat.  Sitting in my air…

Soo…Did I Stick to my Schedule?

So I put myself on a schedule for this week.  I stuck to most of it, but not 100%.  I’m okay with that because some days I did more than planned or mixed it up a bit.  Here’s how my week ended up. Sunday: Run 2 miles (Actual: 1.65 miles) Monday: Run 2 miles (Actual: 2 miles…

New Exercise: Swimming

Today was a beautiful (and hot) sunny day, so I decided to head to the country club and hit the pool.  Normally, I just sit in the sun and take a dip in the pool when I get hot, but today it was almost too hot to sit out all day.  I needed to go…

What a Great Day!

I had to blog because I had such a great day today!  It started out with finally picking a graduate school.  I decided to go to New York University.  I’m really excited.  My Danielle and I will be there together and we’re going to try and find an apartment sometime soon.  Also, I really looking…

My Abs are on Fire

Pilates was intense today.  We did so much ab work thought I was going to die.  Strong abs are a major part of Pilates because you have to use them to control all your body movements, so on top of the major ab workout, I still had to use them throughout the rest of the…

Workout Schedule This Week

So I said it in my last post, I need to set up a schedule to get back on track with working out like I was during the school year.  Well…here it is. Sunday: Run 2 miles (Actual 1.65 miles) Monday: Run 2 miles Tuesday: Pilates Wednesday: “Rest” Day – Wii Fit or Restorative Yoga…

Milestone: 100 Miles

Today I hit 100miles on Nike+! I’m pretty excited about it.  I know I’ve ran a few more miles than that because I don’t always run with my sensor and a couple times the GPS didn’t work, but over all, it’s pretty accurate. I am a little disappointed that it took my five months to…

Nothing Like a Morning Run

It’s a beautiful day today, which meant I had to take advantage of it and go for a run through the neighborhood.  The sun was shining and it was the perfect temperature with the light breeze.  I was so excited.  I haven’t really had a nice day to run, so I was pretty happy that…

Fitness Filled Day

No one can say I was lazy today.  Since I’ve been home from school, I have been slacking on my workout routine.  Today that was not the case. This morning I went to my weekly Pilates session.  We worked on the spring board tower instead of the Pilates reformer like normal.  The exercises killed my…

I Joined a Gym

I’ve been saying it for weeks now, but today I did it…I joined a gym. I had a free week pass to Snap Fitness, so I figured I’d try it out.  The gym was a lot smaller than I expected, but it was really nice and it had a good amount of equipment and a…

Home Again!

This evening I got home from visiting DePaul University in Chicago.  I had a lot of fun and there is a lot more I would have liked to do, but I am glad to be home. I didn’t do as much walking in Chicago as I did in New York, so that’s a bit of…
