last week's workouts

I had several really solid weeks of workouts in a row, and this last week was an unplanned “step back” week. Life got in the way, as it sometimes does. The workouts I did fit in, I honestly didn’t enjoy, which is a bit rare for me. While it wasn’t the strongest week for me, it was still better than nothing and makes me appreciate the weeks where I feel totally on point that much more!

monday. Bob Harper Cardio Conditioning DVD (60 minutes). Holy crap on a cracker, this workout was no joke. All I have at home in terms of weights in a pair of five-pound dumbbells and there were many times throughout the course of the workout that I had to drop them and just go with bodyweight. Bob, you’re an evil, evil man.

tuesday. rest day. I planned on running and strength training, but our first winter storm came through and it made for a treacherous commute home. After 45 minutes of trying to get my car un-stuck (twice!) and a drive that took twice as long as it should have, I went home and curled up with a glass of wine.

wednesday. ran 3 miles (10:50 pace). I opted for the treadmill and it was rough.

thursday. rest/sick day. I was home with a migraine and down for the count pretty much all day long. I rallied enough to go pick my cat up from the vet, but otherwise chilled in bed all day.

friday. rest day. Just because it’s my usual rest day.

saturday. ran 4 miles (11:35 pace). I had 8 miles on my schedule, but running in the snow/slush/ice trashed my legs. Once I hit 2 miles, I knew I didn’t have the full 8 in me so I turned around for home. While I knew I should have done more, I think I made the right call.

15k training

sunday. yoga with a kick (60 minutes). Sometimes, I feel like I’m not completely uncoordinated in this class, and this was one of those instances (for the most part). A great workout all around!


our fears, our lives.

putting the scale away (for now).


Just about a year ago, I got on the scale which has been part of my morning routine for years now and I was so frustrated when the number that popped up was back into the 170s. I know for some people, that number is not a big deal or would be cause for celebration. […]

2014 workouts, week 46.


I had a couple really solid weeks of workouts and this week was good overall, but the motivation was lacking. Monday included a minor car accident (true story:  I hit an ottoman that was randomly in the middle of the expressway.) and two friends who each lost a parent to cancer, so I found myself in […]

review: Eat and Run.


One of the books that has been on my to-read list for a couple of years now is Eat and Run:  My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness by Scott Jurek. Scott Jurek is pretty legendary in the running world, notable for his numerous wins at challenging ultramarathons around the world. Yet, he didn’t start out as a runner. […]

fitness changed me for the better.


Sometimes, when I listen to myself as I talk about the various fitness related activities I do, I think to myself just how drastically my life has changed for the better since I started this whole journey. In 2006, I was overweight, sedentary, and completely uncomfortable in my own skin. While I didn’t recognize it […]

I mustache you some questions.


Danica recently posted this fun survey on her blog and loved it so much that I decided to share my answers for a fun, rainy (snowy-ish) day post! Four names that people call me, other than me real name: Mindy. Because, technically, Melinda is my real name. Goog. Short for Google, which is my nickname […]

2014 workouts, week 45.


  I had another really solid week in fitness – ending the year strong, baby! The only thing I didn’t fit in that I was planning was a New Rules lifting session. My IT band was pretty tight on Sunday after my long run the day before, and I was a bit hesitant to add […]
