What Do You Do When You Get Free Time?

This weekend, I drove for over ten hours and 500 miles to get back and forth from Denver to Aspen for Kelly’s wedding (some tunnel traffic on the return contributed to the long driving time). But despite the lengthy hours spent cooped up on my own solo road trip, I actually thoroughly enjoyed the drive. Not only was the scenery stunningly beautiful, but I also got to catch up on tons of podcasts and learn a lot while I was in the car. I have become rather infatuated with podcasts lately, listening to them on my drive to/from work in …

38 Days of Daily Workouts… and counting

This has been a surprisingly good week for me for workouts. After doing Refine Method every day this weekend, I took a well-deserved break on Monday by just doing 20 minutes of pilates before bed. On Tuesday morning, I crushed it again with a killer Flywheel class – getting my highest score ever on the Torqboard! – but then I missed my intense workout yesterday, since I stupidly tried to put it off till evening. Today, though, I hit up a 6am Tread Fitness class (half free weights, half intense treadmill intervals), and also snuck in 20 minutes of Jillian …

Sometimes I Get a Feeling

On Monday morning, I didn’t feel great when I woke up – but that’s par for the course when my Mondays start at 4:30am and I don’t even arrive at work to start my day until 6 hours later. Hooray for commuting 1300 miles to my job! Unfortunately, it was more than just the commute – and by Monday afternoon, I realized I was on the verge of getting sick. Although I had spent the weekend looking forward to my Monday night plans for a kickboxing workout followed by Bachelor bashing with my friend Blake, I knew I had to …

Weekend Roundup / Why Soreness Doesn’t Matter

My weekend didn’t get off to a great start – but that didn’t mean I couldn’t recover. On Thursday night, I ended up getting quite upset about something – and literally staying up all night long stressing out. Not good at all! At 1am, I went online to cancel my Friday morning Refine Method class, since I could already foresee this being a bad night. I didn’t want to give up on my challenge (especially after my very public commitment to extend my work out daily challenge till March!), but thought I could perhaps go that evening instead of getting …

Picking My Plan B

This morning, I kicked off day 11 of my “work out every day” January challenge with not just one but two workouts: Flywheel and Refine Method. I’ve written a lot about Flywheel in the past, being a FlyAddict and all, but Refine Method is something that is very new to me – and I’m loving it. I was first introduced to Refine Method when Melissa invited me to a blogger outing – but I went into it really sore and didn’t do such a great job. So when I heard about the Refine Resolution Challenge and found out that several …
