Thursday Thoughts

Thursday Thoughts #19

It’s been a while since I let the world in on what’s going on in my brain. Let’s do some thinking out loud on this Thursday, shall we? I realized the other day that I don’t think I’ve gone for a run since my half marathon. Whoops? I haven’t been taking a purposeful break from…

Fitness Friday: What's Next

Fitness Friday – What’s Next

Happy Friday! Congratulations on making to the end of another week .  I haven’t been recapping my workouts on this here blog lately, partly because they just haven’t been very exciting. Up until my race last weekend I was mostly doing a lot of running and not a whole lot else. Now that I’ve done my race,…

Orangetheory Calgary

My Saturday Afternoon at Orangetheory Calgary

Happy Monday, everyone! I had a great weekend filled with friends, family, and fitness, and I hope you did too! The MEC 15k race was quite the adventure, but I’ll talk about that more tomorrow. After I slogged through my race in the morning, I drove down to the south of Calgary for a new-to-me…

Fitness Friday – The April 7th Edition

Ah the IT band. It’s the runner’s nemesis, and right now it is the source of my ongoing knee issues.

Sidenote – Safari keeps autocorrecting physio to physic, so if that word pops up…

Fitness-Friday April Fools

Fitness Friday – the April Fools Day Edition

Everything is going absolutely perfectly, and I feel totally ready to run a 15k race next weekend. April Fools!  In all seriousness, things are going ok running-wise. The knee problems that I talked about last week are still rearing their ugly head, so I’ve been taking it easier than I would really like to over the…

Fitness Friday – the 03.27.16 Edition

I hope you’re having a good friday! After you’ve recovered from your uncontrollable laughter at my incredibly original joke, let’s talk about my workouts this week. I went pretty light on the running, which obviously isn’t great because I’m training for a half marathon, but I’m still feeling like things in my left leg aren’t…

Fitness Friday – The 03.11.16 Edition

Congratulations on making it through another week, friends! It’s Friday, which means that it’s almost the weekend, and that it’s time for another addition of Fitness Friday! I’m sure you’re equally excited for both of these things . Friday: Nada Saturday: In the morning I went to my first class at Union, and, guys, it almost killed me….
