Weekly Workouts: March 9 and 16, 2015

The last few weeks have been a little crazy and very exhausting. My running buddy and I decided to shake things up a bit, which has thrown my daily routine off. I have been working crazy hours and my procedure is coming up sooner that I would like. I really wish that time would slow down a bit so that I could catch my breath. Then again, I am also ready to move forward from this medical issue and start focusing my efforts on planning an awesome wedding.

Overall, I feel that my workouts have been pretty good during the last few weeks. Of course, I also feel like I am not doing enough. I am running at least two times a week but I would like to add one or two more runs each week. I would like to be doing more in terms of strength and cross training. Besides a lack of time, I think I have been hesitant to start a program before my procedure. I just don’t know how long it will take me to recover or feel good enough to work out. I would really prefer to start a program when my body (and mind) is ready to go all in.

Balancing My Everyday Stress

Stress is a six letter word that constantly makes my everyday life exhausting and overwhelming. It is simply the body’s reaction to a challenge. These challenges come in all shapes and sizes but the relatively small challenges are the ones that cause me the most stress. Life challenges me on a daily basis causing excessive…

Weekly Workouts: February 23, 2015

Is it really Wednesday? I just can’t seem to catch up lately. Sometimes it takes so much extra time after a weekend away to get back into the regular swing of things. I don’t think that it helped any that work has been crazy of that Pete and I are sick once again. We keep…

Weekly Workouts: February 16, 2015

Is it really Friday afternoon? Normally, I am so much better at posting my weekly workouts at the beginning of the week but this week has been brutal. Work has been killer and I haven’t really wanted to do much of anything when I got home. Last weekend, I survived another runDisney race weekend. Honestly,…
