The More You Know (the more confused you are)

This week, I am back in the classroom.  Or, at least, sitting on the floor of a dance studio with my notebook and pen, watching Powerpoint presentations (and LOTS of live physical demonstrations).  It’s a weird feeling – in a good way. You see, I’m taking four days of classes with Personal Trainer/Yoga Trainer/Pilates Trainer […]

“You want to be purposefully rooted in the place that you live.” -Scott Austin, Pastor at Artisan Church in Rochester, NY Why yes I do Pastor Scott.  YES I DO. All the way back in 2006, KMN and I were fortunate to stumble upon the young, vibrant Artisan Church community just down the street from […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up (Oct. 14-20)

I had to look at the calendar – twice – to remind myself that last week was really just the second week after my 50K.  My legs felt…awesome.  I was doing much more cross-training than running, but BodyPump and RPM (indoor cycling) aren’t exactly gentle on the legs.  Here’s what happened: Monday: RPM Also, I […]

Friday Gym Fun #2

A long, long time ago – aka, earlier this year, when I was but a baby blogger, I tried out a “Friday Gym Fun” post.  The assignment to a Friday was random,  and it’s been quite awhile since that first one – I’ve had a partial draft of a second saved for quite a long […]

My new blogging schedule declared Thursdays to be “Stretch of the Week” days.  I was excited. You all seemed excited.  There were suggestions.  I made stretch lists.  I took some photos.  And then…I realized I had to write an introductory post, which didn’t seem like nearly as much fun as sharing stretches. But thanks to […]

As I was checking how my Weekly Workout Round-Up for last week post looked on email and on my phone, I was a little surprised to see a phrase that snuck into the post: “…but I’m a bad blogger…”  I caught my breath.  Crap.  How did that get in there?  I often see this phrase in […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up (Oct. 7-13)

Last week was characterized by two things: 1. Not much running. 2. A return to yang yoga. Both of these were good things.  As I’ve said before, I tend to use the post-long-race week as both a physical and mental break from training.  I take a step back from my intense Sunday afternoon workout scheduling […]

TNF100: Final Thoughts on a 50K (Race Report Part 3?)

50K Race Report, Part 1 50K Race Report, Part 2 The Aftermath When I left you at the end of Part 2, I had just crossed the Finish Line.  There was a reasonably nice spread of Finish Line goodies: water, sherbet pops, Subway sandwiches…and probably a few other items.  Unfortunately, after 4 miles on over-crowded […]

Weekly Workout Round-Up (Sept. 30 – Oct. 6)

So much for posting this stinker on…uhhh…Sunday?  Ah, well, there was too much 50King to discuss this week to be overly concerned about Workout Round-Ups.  Most of you know what a taper looks like, anyway.  But I’m a sucker for completeness, so here’s a quick rundown of my workout week leading up to the North […]
