Warmed me right up

It’s a grey, chilly day out, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from going for a run outdoors today. I brought a pullover to try to keep warm, but I still shivered as I stepped out of … Continue reading

What do you even say?

Today was the "short program" Stronglifts day (yes, I have taken to calling the workouts the short program and the long program, in my head). Squats, overhead press, deadlift: 120, 55,155. They were hard; however, I’m still going to add … Continue reading

Unorthodox workouts

I’m not sure that the preferred way to structure a workout is to do an hour-long yoga class and then lift, but that’s the way I did it today and it seemed to work all right. Yoga is a nice … Continue reading

Back to nature

The weather is gorgeous today– a beautiful early fall day. And I did go out for that park run! The trail was a bit damp, but it’s pretty well-drained (aka rocky) and there wasn’t much mud. The leaves have just … Continue reading

Best laid plans

I walked out the door (so early) this morning with an ambitious set of workout plans: a lifting session in the morning, and yoga in the evening. I think work is going to kill any hopes I had for doing … Continue reading
