Yesterday I got to run a real, live half marathon!  Despite the Covid pandemic, I feel very fortunate to have found actual races to run.  It's funny because the 2 races I planned on this year have both been cancelled, but I found 3 other races to run instead!  Sounds l...

Welcome December!!!  Twenty more days until the days start to get longer again!!  YAY!

This time of year can be such a whirlwind and can get really busy really fast.  And it is often wrought with lots of sweets and rich foods.  Just know you don't ever HAVE to...

We're hopping into Week 2 of November!  It's crazy that this year is almost over.  Even though the holiday season will be beginning soon, we're still hitting our workouts in the gym.  We were pleasantly surprised to begin the Tuesday/Thursday HIIT workouts and not be t...

Oh Boy!

We changed things up a bit last week, and I. Was. Sore!!!

It's easy to get stuck in a workout rut, even if you don't think you're stuck in a rut.  For a long time we've switched workouts every day and have usually lifted lighter with more reps.  However, last wee...

It's marathon week!!!  In March, I signed up to run the St. George Marathon, just as I was getting back into running after a 10-week injury.  I was loving running and felt strong and confident that I could get back into marathoning and start setting some PR's (personal...

We are FEELING the burn!  It's amazing what a difference 5 rounds of each set makes!  Fortunately, they go by pretty quickly since we are usually only performing 10 reps.  We are going to finish out this month by sticking with the 5 rounds of 10 reps per exercise.  Tho...

Have you ever felt like you've hit a plateau?  Perhaps when you began exercising you saw large, quick improvements in your fitness, strength, and/or endurance.  However, as you continued exercising, maybe you saw those gains/benefits "stop."
