14 Days

It has been 14 days since I’ve gone on a run. Clearly I need something to motivate me. Any suggestions? Honestly, I’m not trying to be lazy. I’ve gone to Pilates a few times, and I’ve planned on going for runs but with the end of the semester closing in, I’ve been so busy with…

Back to Working Out

Today was my first day working out since the half marathon. I did some cross training and went to Pilates. Sixth Street Pilates had been running a promotion of two private sessions for $100 instead of the normal rate of $75 per session. This was my second private lesson and it was just as great…
