Ah, recovery week, we meet again. Okay well, we are about to say goodbye again in two days, but our time together this week has been lovely. First order of business this past week was to invest in one of these.  It’s a Napsack and it’s amazing.  My husband and I LOVE camping.  This will […]

Training While Traveling

20131228_103515

Maintaining your training or workout routine can be difficult when you’re not in your typical day to day environment.  With a little planning ahead of time, you can still get in all of your scheduled workouts.  My recent travels to Philadelphia were a great way to practice training while traveling. With a little advance notice […]

Cayuga Lake Triathlon Practice

PracTri9

This is where I get to do my next triathlon.  Isn’t it beautiful? Last week, the local triathlon club put together a practice bike/run on the course. Unfortunately, due to traffic and a detour, I was 15 minutes late.  Both, the sprint tri and olympic tri groups had already left.  I was pretty bummed that […]

Track Workout and Hydrating with Drink Chia

Last night’s track workout called for a mile warmup, 4 sets of 5×200 at {around} mile pace, and a cool down.  It was a great workout to get the legs turning over faster and to work on efficient form. I don’t feel I’m very strong when it comes to sprinting, so I was pleased to […]

Injury Update With Some Training

plank2

I’ve spent the past week slowly coming back from this: I use pictures to describe my injury because I have yet to figure out what it is.  Yesterday, at my appointment with the podiatrist, he found that same sore spot on the top of my foot.  What is causing this ONE spot to feel like […]

More of that Kinvara 4 Speed

IMG_20130411_175213

Today’s scheduled workout was a nice and easy 30 minute tempo…is there such a thing and as easy tempo? I made sure to wear all of my bright colors, including my Saucony Kinvara 4 sneaks for the big event.   Real quick, I’ll share a few MORE features that I’ve noted as being awesome about […]

Track Times

2013-04-09_18-57-59_202

Warm(er) weather and track workouts are the perfect combination. These are just SOME of the awesome people I get to share the pain of speed with! Today’s workout was 5 x 800…a nice workout to ease back into the track routine.  I’ve done some speed recently, but mostly shorter stuff to work on my turnover […]

Workouts with Some Vega

2013-04-08_17-23-40_497

Well, my lovely Spring break came to end EARLY this morning, 5AM early. Body Pump was calling my name, so I got to it!  Body Pump is by far my favorite way to get in my strength training.  If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend! This afternoon, I hit up the pool. I recently […]

More of the 4

Triangular Lugs on the bottom of the shoe

Rather than writing one big review/post on the Saucony Kinvara 4, I figured it might be better to share a little bit as I go. Today’s run looked like this: Let me explain… The temp was in the 40s and I was trying to get away with wearing capris.  The socks definitely helped keep me […]

Meet the Saucony Kinvara 4

2013-04-04_19-01-20_971

If you somehow missed my hundreds of Instagram pictures, I’ll fill you in on what arrived today… A really cool looking package!  So what was inside?…none other than the Saucony Kinvara 4!  Talk about instant motivation to run. I LOVE these colors.  The yellow is SO bright-just my thing! I didn’t have much time, because […]
