Weekly Recap – 12.22.19 – Working Out While Traveling Over Holidays

Weekly Recap – 12.15.19 – Marathon Recovery Tips

This week started out in the best way possible!  A brand, new shiny PR of 3:40:45!  I would have loved to have crossed the finish line with a brand, new shiny Boston Qualifying time, but I am so incredibly happy with a 14 minute PR. … Read the rest

Weekly Recap 11.17.19 – Cumulative Fatigue

Last week was pretty magical and amazing, but this week I felt like pile of poop for pretty much the entire week.  We started off the week traveling back from south Texas, and while I felt pretty fatigued Sunday, I was hoping that was just from staying up later than usual on Saturday and that I’d have more energy Monday. … Read the rest

This week was not good to me.  It started off nice and unassuming enough, but by Tuesday everything pretty much went downhill.  Reflecting on this week, I am so thankful for health insurance and the fact that I have a relationship with an amazing chiropractor. … Read the rest
