Some Motivation and Inspiration

So I mentioned in my last post that I have to revamp my training schedule because of work.  I attempted to wake up early and go for my runs before work, but that didn’t happen.  I happened upon this blog on Pinterest the other day, so I thought I’d share it. You+Me=Fit is a blog…

Gonna Make This Work

So yesterday I started my internship (which I love), but the days I work are the same days I usually run. Yesterday I didn’t have a problem fitting my run in because I don’t have class, so I just went for my run when I got home. And for the record, it was a great…

Ten Weeks Down, Seven to Go

Wow, what a busy week…and next week is going to be just as busy…bring it on! Monday: I assumed that after last weeks 9.5 mile run my short runs this week would have been awesome.  I was so wrong.  I had such a hard time running on Monday it wasn’t even funny.  I ran along…

I Made It! Weekly Recap

This week started out slow.  I didn’t do my 30 min Monday run, so that night I booked a Pilates session for the next day.  Pilates totally kicked my butt that day and my abs were sore on Wednesday.  I still made it out for a run on Wednesday it just wasn’t 30 mins like…

What a Great Run!

Yesterday I was supposed to do a 30min run.  I only ended up doing 20mins because I was struggling.  So today I gave it another shot and it was great.  I ran for 35mins and I was just shy of 3.5 miles.  I was really happy with it.  I felt so much better about this…

If I Don’t Run in the Morning…

…I just don’t run. So last night when I was planning out my week, I checked out the weather and noticed that it was going to be cool all day today meaning I could run anytime I wanted to.  I did laundry this morning along with scheduling interviews with PR firms, spent the afternoon doing…

Week 8 Review

This week was an easier one according to the training program, and even though that was the case, I didn’t completely stick to it. On Monday I went for my 30 min run on a different path than I normally do.  It was similar to the 8 mile run from last week.  I ran through…

Sixth Street Pilates

So I’m happy to report I found a Pilates studio in my are of NYC.  It’s actually the street over from my apartment, so that’s great! My roommate and I went to our first mat class this afternoon.  I had never done a mat class before.  I’ve only had my private sessions so this was…

Checking out the Gym

So it’s a gloomy day in New York City and with the predicted rain, I decided that I would run at the gym instead of outside.  Plus, this gave me a chance to check out the NYU gym.  So I hopped on the bus and made my way there. This place is huge.  So big…

Back on Track with Week 7

So I finally got back to my half marathon training program this week. Monday was a 30 min run.  I only ran for 20 because I didn’t map out my route very well and got back to my apartment around 20 mins, and figured good enough. Wednesday was also a 30 min run.  I ran…

Running Recap for August

This month had ups and downs, and I don’t know some of my stats because of the Nike+ sensor issue, but that’s okay.  I still have an idea. This month also consisted of a move to NYC and so really hot runs outside, so it wasn’t as good as I hoped.  Although, it will probably…
