It is not you. It is me.

It is not you. It is me.

Dear Triathlon, I seem to have this relationship with you where I’ve wanted to go out with you and then pulled back, then wanted to go out and hesitated again, and then … you get the drift. When I first started on a journey to loose my baby weight(which has since then turned into a journey to stay fit and do some crazy things along the way), I joined the Y and met with a “wellness coach”. What are your goals,…

Speedwork Tuesday

Speedwork Tuesday

Speedwork makes me nervous. Especially one on a track with other people and a coach. The one that I attended yesterday with Coach Cawood of No Boundaries Multisport was no different. A whole bunch of fast fit people, a track, and a coach with a clipboard! We started out with a mile warmup (the others went 1.5 miles) and a whole lot of drills. High knees, Butt kicks, lunges with high knees, tin soldiers, touch your feet cross-toed, high knees…

#RunForBoston

#RunForBoston

Almost all running stores across the country had a Boston dedicated run on Monday, a week after the bombings. And in spite of all the monday craziness, I went to our local running store to take part in the solidarity run. It was honoring and humbling to be a part of this amazing community. We started the run in silence, but ended with noise, chatter and laughter, as we took back our streets from the cowards who attacked it.

We had a mango tree in our backyard which mum used for raw mango recipes. As kids, we were very disappointed that we couldn’t eat these mangoes (well you could, but I had…

Our First Multisport Race – A Duathlon

Our First Multisport Race – A Duathlon

Hubby is on his road to Augusta 70.3! Apart from my Callaway Sprint 2 years ago, this duathlon was our his first multisport race and he did pretty good. He started on the bike only about 6-8 weeks ago and has gotten quite comfortable in clipless pedals. Cheering was hard work though! He got to nap in the afternoon while I have to be up with the kids 🙂 We got there a tad late, so we couldn’t catch him running…

#BestRun

#BestRun

I am usually all over a challenge like Miss Zippy’s Best Run Link Up. However, since I have hardly run since my Little Rock Marathon, this was really a challenge for me! What makes a run a “Best Run” anyway? A good pace/splits/distance Running a good pace with even/negative splits always makes for a great run for me. In my training cycles, I am usually all about hitting a certain pace that it is  very elating when I am able…
