Run recap: 8 mile snow run

NYC finally got it's first snowfall of winter and of course, that's the day I decide to do my long run. I thought i'd be the only crazy outside running but no, oh no, I was not. I counted 6 people running outside in the snow so there! Anyhow, it was a bit of a challenge because I had to a) watch where I was steppin (for ice, puddles, etc) b) put a little extra oompfh in my step because I felt like I wasn't going anywhere (like running in sand) c) I had continually wipe my glasses (contacts would have been a good idea). I got it done though... Onto next week.. I need to get a 10 mile in. I'm a little off schedule but I feel like if I can get at least a 10 mile run in before the race I shall be fine to finish.

S&S Recap: NTC

Today we tackle a nike training club workout.  We love the NTC workouts since you can get a really tough workout in a short amount of time (30 min).   And by tough we mean we really enjoyed it when we got to our 60 second rest periods during the workout.  If you haven't tried it out find the NTC app for your iphone or ipad - it's free!

S&S is back!

holy smokes batman - guess who's back?!  I think it took a week or two of us trying to coordinate our workout together but we finally got it together this morning.  I thoroughly missed our morning text message convos trying to get each other up. Today's motivation - jetting next door for a morning coffee pick-me-up.  Afterwards we ran back to our gym and hopped on the dreadmill.  I was supposed to get 3 miles in today but we did 2 because of the late start.  Tomorrow is a 5 miler so we'll see how that goes  since rain is forecasted (argh).  It might be a NTC day.  Until then... peace!

Makeup Monday - Day 4 run recap

I had a hard time getting out of bed Sunday (which is usually my long run day) so I relaxed for the extra hour and told myself to do it monday morning.  In hindsight, I totally wish i would have done it yesterday because after my run this morning, the last thing I wanted to do was rush through the hot shower afterwards and "run" to work.  Lesson learned.   I'm still proud of myself for finishing this.  I had a few thoughts of stopping and walking but halfway through I was in a groove.  My GPS was acting up so I ran according to time and figured that I would be close to 7 miles after an 1 hr and 10min.  But then I wasn't home yet so the extra 8 minutes seemed to get me just above 7.5 mi.  Wish me luck that I don't nap at work!

No tourists for once... so rare.

BK and back...

Run Report: Day 2

Checking in with day 2 of my 1/2 marathon training. I missed the boat yesterday morning so I had to make up for it this morning with my 5 miler.  Ended up going a little over.  Ankle was sore starting off but eventually got into a groove where it didn't bother me at all.  Might need to some ankle stretching soon as I get out of bed.  Here's a peek into my route and run.

S&S, Where have y'all been???!

Seriously folks, it's a little insane.  Sariah is jetsetting all over the country while I'm stuck here manning the fort...the life of a popstar right?  But have no fear - I'm still working out just been slacking on the video front. Well actually, not even the video front the POSTING front.  I've been running tight on time so I dont get the chance to upload the vids to our channel.  Also,  it's really not that entertaining - it's not like I can show you exercises while holding the camera lol.  But this weekend I did tape a little post workout minute after finishing my Nike Training Club workout. I can't recommend these workouts enough - it's a great way to get a jam-packed full body workout in 30 minutes. There's 45 min options as well.   Tuesday, I did "shakedown" and lemme tell you - I looked like a madwoman since the exercises only go for 30 sec or 1 minute and it's literally up and down up and down.  Go from toe touches with a medicine ball into a squat press then back into plank rows or burpee to shoulder press every minute.  OMG. I was exhausted! but no pain no gain right?

I'm still sore.


The winner is.....
