What Do You Mean I Can’t Use the Gym!?

So tomorrow is my 8 mile run for my half marathon training program, and I was going to run it at the gym.  It’s been hot out (today its 90+) and I didn’t want to spend a couple hours or so running in the heat, so I figured that it was a good time to…

Sworkit!

So I download an app for my phone called Sworkit.  Basically you put in how many minutes you want to work out, what area of the body you want to work, and you’re ready to go! Seeing today was my strength training day, I decided to give it a try.  I did a 15 min…

Milestone: 200 Miles

Today I hit 200 miles on Nike+!! Back when I hit 100 miles I mentioned that I wanted to hit 200 miles within the next three months.  Well, I was about a week shy of that goal. At first I was kind of upset I didn’t get to 200 miles by August 18th like I…

Went Running for Cupcakes

So my roommate is also a runner, and decided it would be fun to run to Battery Park and go to a bakery there.  If would have been fun if it wasn’t 90 degrees out and if we had actually found the bakery.  I really wanted a cupcake. It wasn’t all bad.  We ran 5.5…

First Run in NYC

Today I was finally able to fit a run in.  It was my first run in New York and it was much different than running in my neighborhood in Michigan. First off, there are a lot more people out and about in NYC.  Not that I wouldn’t be expected there to be people out, but…

Sucky Week 5

So I knew this week was going to be tough to get runs in with the move to New York and all, but it was nearly impossible.  I was so stressed and have break downs during the week that if I even thought about running, it would stress me out even more because I was…

Ending my Gym Membership

Tomorrow I moved to NYC, and I’m so excited and stressed at the same time.  But the big move means a lot of changes to my work out for the next few days. To start with, I have to end my gym membership.  I opened it up so I had a place to run on…

Out with the Early Birds

I had the worst time sleeping last night resulting in waking up at 4:30am.  I tried to fall back asleep, but 6:30am rolled around and I still hadn’t passed out.  I felt silly continuing to lay in bed, so I decided it was time to get up and be productive.  I went for a run….

Nike’s “Game On, World” Day

I don’t run very often on Sundays.  It usually a rest day for me, but today I ran because it was Nike’s Game On, World day. It wasn’t too hot out this afternoon (which I was surprised about) so I decide to run through the neighborhood instead of going to the gym.  It was okay…

Week 4 Report

Again…this week wasn’t the best… Monday was supposed to be a quick 30min run…I didn’t do it.  I was busy with other things and I kept saying I needed to go out and run, but it never happened.  Not good when I can’t even get the first run of the week in. Tuesday was Pilates…

Week 3 Report

This was not a good week.  And I can only hope that I get my ass in gear soon. Monday was supposed to be a 30min run, but I never made it to the gym or out for a run.  I did have a Pilates session, so I wasn’t completely lazy, but I didn’t do…

July Was Mighty Fine

Here’s what the month of July looked like, and might I say, it was a good month. Probably my best all year! First of all, I recorded my best mile time!  Along with that, I recorded my best 1K time.  I also managed to decrease my average pace and I’ve gotten really close to 200miles….
