Holy moly! How are we already nearly halfway through 2016?? The sun has been shinning and it looks like summer’s here early! Taking a look back at May: Up my yoga practice to twice a week – not quite up to twice a week yet 🙁 but I am still going once a week and it has been a-maz-ing! I… Read more »

Mileage Monday – Adaptation Week

      No Comments on Mileage Monday – Adaptation Week

So last week was an adaptation week which means lower mileage and sometimes shorter workouts. I find I am a lot less structured on an adaptation week and much more likely to cut a run short or skip it on those weeks. Last week in a nutshell: Sunday: Easy 90′ – 13.2km Monday: 60′ Weight Session (+stretching) Tuesday: Hot Yoga… Read more »

Workout Wednesday: Do you pick things up and put them down?

Whoops! A workout Wednesday post on a Thursday! I’m sure you all know how it is when life gets busy and sometimes it is just hard to adult. Did the time change for daylight savings affect anyone else this week?  I didn’t think an hour could really have that kind of impact but I am definitely feeling it – especially… Read more »

Workout Wednesday: Onward and Upward!

      3 Comments on Workout Wednesday: Onward and Upward!

Just kidding spring is not coming as I over-zealously stated in my last Workout Wednesday post! While it was pretty nice last week, it has been super cold the last few days and I am so missing the Mexican sun this week! (We were lucky to be down there for a week at the end of February) Good news though, I… Read more »

Whew it has been a frustrating few months! Between little injuries and niggles then being sick last month I feel like I keep ‘starting over’ and I have to tell you it’s getting a little old 😉 Figuring out what works for you really is all part of the journey. I am actively changing my approach to training and have been… Read more »

Wow I can’t believe we are already heading into March! It definitely feels like spring time on the island which means I am getting super excited about the longer days and nicer weather for workouts! So how did February go? Not as great as I was hoping to be honest.  Not sure if I am the only one but it… Read more »
