WOW 2•11 | impatience and persistence

WOW 7.2 – back to normal, whatever that is.

i had some slip-ups over the weekend, but nothing too crazy.  i’m starting to incorporate some old workouts back into my routine.  i’m still doing my couch to 5k and strength training.  the running is getting rough though.  i’m not enjoying it at all.  so i’ve been doing more kickboxing and started back at some… Continue reading WOW 7.2 – back to normal, whatever that is.

WOW 6.25 – ways to make running suck less for the beginner

first off – i’m not a runner.  i hate it.  running sucks for me.  i envy those people who “enjoy” running and pass me about a million times at the park.  but i’m challenging myself to run this summer three to five times a week for at least thirty minutes.  i’ve done it before and… Continue reading WOW 6.25 – ways to make running suck less for the beginner

sorry for the radio silence lately… i’ve been going through it. just been in a funk.  it happens sometimes.  i’ve learned to deal with it, but occasionally it holds on for longer than i’d like.  the anxiety is the cause.  i know and recognize that.  but the blues, man?  that always surprises me. my fitness/food… Continue reading from a hot mess to another new beginning.
