So Thankful I Must Share

      9 Comments on So Thankful I Must Share

A mid afternoon post? You know that means something…and it’s not that I was too lazy to prep my post yesterday, it meant that I wasn’t going to post today.  I was going to take the day off but I have to share a few things with you because today I’m feeling so completely thankful.

Thursday Thoughts – Running Motivation

      10 Comments on Thursday Thoughts – Running Motivation

I’m going to be honest, I couldn’t get out the door yesterday.  Part because my body was sore and felt like it needed rest (so I listened!) but part because I was lacking motivation.  There was an easy switch by taking the planned rest for today, having it yesterday and hitting the pavement for my run today.   I did… Read more »

It all started the night before.  I guess I should know better but I’ve eaten pesto lately with (little to) no problems but that wasn’t the case.  I felt my stomach churn.  I should have known better.   Morning came way too soon.  It was early, I was tired, and my dinner proved to be troublesome.  My body just felt… Read more »

This has been a week full of ups-and-downs. This has been a week of new accomplishments.

Fitness Friday

One of the hardest things for me, despite understanding it’s importance, is staying on top of my stretching and flexibility training.  I’ll tell myself that I’m going to stretch after my workout but then I’m either running late, forget, feel “too tired” or some other excuse and it doesn’t happen.  I also tell myself I’ll foam roll or stretch while… Read more »
