#WorkoutWednesday: 30 Minute Strength Workout

Ever since Lady Bug was born (she’s now two-and-a-half), my running has been two steps forward, one step back, eg) frustrating to the max.

Workout Wednesday: Why You Aren’t Fit (and How to Change That in 4 Simple Steps!)

The year’s almost over. Now is a great time to review the year behind us. I don’t know about you, but I’m asking myself what worked, what didn’t, and how I can use this information to make next year better…. I could write a whole entire post about that. And I will. But for now, let’s talk […]

This weekend I did the Venus De Miles all-women’s ride. There were three options- 30 miles, 64 miles, and 100 miles. With very limited time to train, the 100 mile option was out.

Workout Wednesday Volume 18: It’s Ok Not to Have a Fitness Goal (and why balance is overrated)

I love goals. It might even be fair to say I’m a goal junkie. Goals are what get me up before dawn (or before the kids get up, which is roughly the same stupidly early hour). Goals are what get me to lace up my sneakers when I’m not in the mood to work out and my […]

Workout Wednesday Vol 15: Coping with an Injury

Q: I’m injured and I’m freaking out!! What do I do?? A: This question has personal significance for me, since I am injured at the moment. Boo. My hip had been feeling a little sore for a while, but running didn’t seem to make it worse. So a couple of weeks ago I ran for […]
