Training Tuesday: April 30, 2019

Eventually, I’ll actually publish these posts on Tuesdays, but for now I am proud of myself for getting them published. Period. This week was pretty heavy on walking, but I’m really proud of myself for making exercise a consistent habit. Can you call two weeks…

Training Tuesday: April 23, 2019

Last week marked my most consistent week of fitness in at least a year, and I am so proud of myself. We don’t celebrate ourselves enough, so I’m doing just that! While journaling the other day, I thought back to when I felt my fittest.…

Training Tuesday: April 16, 2019

In hindsight, I think part of the reason I went MIA on writing these last few months started when I sat down to write my third Training Tuesday post for the year. I hadn’t done anything. Okay, maybe one Orangetheory class, but beyond that? Nothing.…

Training Tuesday: Week 2

Training Tuesday: Week 2

I thought last week – the first full week back to reality after the holidays – would be the one to throw me off, but no. I am all out of sorts this week! This morning (Wednesday), I woke up this morning and thought it…

Training Tuesday: Week 1

Training Tuesday: Week 1

I have some pretty huge racing goals for this year and that’s going to mean being extraordinarily diligent in my training for the months ahead. That means it’s time for the return of the training logs! While my fitness efforts were minimal at best for…

2018 Week In Review: Week 40

2018 Week In Review: Week 40

Although I’m not yet working out much each week, it feels really good to get into a routine after such a long stretch of doing so little. As I shared last week, my goal is three or four days a week for the time being.…

2018 Week In Review: Week 39

2018 Week In Review: Week 39

As I work on improving my mental health, one area where my therapist and I are focusing is to break away from my typical “all or nothing” mindset. Although the last year and a half has been more on the nothing side, prior to that…

2018 Week In Review: Week 38

2018 Week In Review: Week 38

I don’t know if anyone finds these posts particularly helpful, but I appreciate the self-accountability they provide. So, I’m bringing back the week in review health and fitness reports! The last time I wrote was back in April when I was still training for a…

Grand Rapids Triathlon Training: Weeks 2 and 3

Grand Rapids Triathlon Training: Weeks 2 and 3

A more accurate title for this post would be Bodyshred Recap: Weeks 2 and 3, as actual triathlon training was almost (but, not entirely!) nonexistent. I knew that swimming was not an option during week two because the pool was closed during spring break. Weather…

Grand Rapids Triathlon Training: Week 1

Grand Rapids Triathlon Training: Week 1

Despite the fact that I deferred my spring races – a half marathon and a 25k – I still have a sprint triathlon on the calendar for early June. While the thought of the two road races didn’t light a fire in my soul, I…
