Half marathon training plan+current routine+goals

Half marathon training plan+current routine+goals

*Edit: So I kind of laughed yesterday when I went to edit this post because I had been typing it up for a week or so, and was SO pumped to dive into my workouts after my rest week. I woke up Monday morning to a phone call offering to be on-call at work. Obviously I said yes. And then realized I felt terrible. A blessing in disguise (Matthew 11:28), for sure. But getting a hard sweat in was NOT…

Orangetheory + a Workout

Orangetheory + a Workout

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday! Did everyone have a good Monday/weekend? I feel like I’ve been pretty lucky in having weekends off, so I’m mentally preparing myself to work the night shifts this weekend. Yikes. Last weekend I hung out with a friend and stared at my paper drafts for school all day Sunday and Monday. Blackboard was shut down all morning Monday so that was fantastic :D. However, I did start my Monday off on a positive note by attending…

A long weekend and…a half marathon?

A long weekend and…a half marathon?

Edit: That awkward moment when you realize over 24 hours later that your post never posted. After staying up finishing the night before working at the hospital. COOL.    Hi hello howdyyyyy.   I write this post with a grateful (and stressed) heart! I think half of grad school is learning to structure your time. Especially when you work bizarre nurse schedules….*eye roll emoji*. Anyway, I didn’t seem to have any issues ignoring my homework this weekend which lead to 12…

Hey friends! How’s it going? If you can’t tell I’m on the blogger struggle BUS. But, I’m adapting. Learning. Staying busy! As I’ve mentioned before, I used to be a pretty avid runner. Nowadays, I love love love high intensity circuits and strength training. I went two solid years without running and have recently enjoyed sprinkling it back in!

My Favorite Way to Strength Train + A Workout

My Favorite Way to Strength Train + A Workout

Trainer Tuesday? Instead of workout Wednesday. Whatever clever name fits the bill…I’ll go with it. I’m still playing around with a new blog schedule. (link). I think I’m getting the hang of school? It’s a tad weird to be in non-sciency courses (you can be in grad school and still say stuff like that, right?). And talking about health policy kind of makes my brain explode….but I’ll get there. Today I wanted to talk about my favorite way to strength train….

July Lessons and August Goals

July Lessons and August Goals

I love reading these posts on other blogs. And they always inspire me to sit down and reflect and look at what I could be working on. I don’t live a Monday-Friday lifestyle. So Monday’s aren’t usually a fresh start and I don’t always wish for Friday’s. (Which, actually erks my very type A routine craving self-though I won’t admit to it when  I’m sitting by the pool/beach on a Monday 😉 ). And I say this with a grain…
