Race Recap: Philly Hot Chocolate 15K 2017

Well, the month of March completely got away from me! I’m not making any blogging promises but here I am, trying again. Let’s just jump right in then, okay? RACE RECAP!

This past Saturday was the Philadelphia Hot Chocolate 15K. I signed up because my friend Emily raved about it after running it multiple times. It doesn’t take much to convince me but the

Start of 2017 Race Training

I mentioned briefly in my last post that I was registered for two races this coming April, the Philly Hot Chocolate 15K and the Atlantic City April Fool’s Half Marathon. Today, I also put my name in the Broad Street Run lottery to try to do that race in May. It is a 10 Miler and I’ve run it 3 times before already. It is

Summer Fun

Hello! Long time no chat. I obviously have a really hard time blogging at night after work. I just want to snuggle on the couch with the kitties and the hubby, what can I say?

Stormy loves the snuggles

What have I been up to? Well…

Friends & Family

Lots of time always spent with the family and close friends. It being summer

New Race on the Calendar!

I might have gone a little insane yesterday. I signed up for the Atlantic City Marathon Neptune Challenge – Run the AC 10K on Saturday, October 22 and then the AC Half Marathon on Sunday October 23!

I’ve done this kind of race before (AC April Fool’s Day Jester’s Challenge 2015). I had a much better fitness base to work with then, but barely

Fitness Report & Philly Museum of Art

Happy mid week! This week has been especially stressful for me but I don’t feel like talking about that. How about some health and fitness updates? Last week, I killed it on the workouts!

Friday, I decided to stay home from Bullpen which was a good thing because I ended up getting an important phone call. I did my C25K run and then popped

Successful Week

This weekend ended up being busier than I expected, but I made my run happen. Rob and I were having his parents over for breakfast on Sunday so I made sure to do my third run of the week on Saturday morning. Do you know what that means? I didn’t miss a single workout this week, and I exercised 6 days in a row!

Switching 5K Training Plans

Today’s run did not go as planned. I decided to go with timed intervals instead of distance. I just picked a 2:1 ratio of running to walking and got started. It quickly became apparent that it wasn’t going well, and I needed more walking than that.

After my run, I did a little quick math and figured out my time intervals from my run on

2 Months at Bullpen

Even though I haven’t been recapping my workouts lately, I have been hitting Bullpen on a regular basis. Actually, in 8 and a half weeks, I’ve only missed 2 workouts. And I only missed those because I had someplace important to be – and I didn’t skip exercise that day! I made sure to exercise at home those days instead.

Today’s workout was tough. I
