This is it. Something I have wanted to do my entire life. And no… it does not involve nudity [insert the sound of tabs and browsers closing]. I am talking about a fitness streak. Back story: This November I embarked on a new purposeful fitness journey which involved “almost daily” fitness. Aaaaaaaand when I checked… Continue reading I’m going streaking…!!!
Turning 35 this past summer, I am just getting to know my body at this phase in my life. My partner and I are unofficially trying. Work has been hectic to say the least, and my fitness regime has become… well… less regimented but most definitely still there in the form of sporadic bursts of… Continue reading Mum-Strength: a Skyline Trail Story
So this year has been an interesting one. I decided to take a breather from becoming a specialist and just, well, chill the f*** out. What does that mean fitness wise? I didn’t stop running, entirely, but what I did do is stop focusing on running. Instead, I focused on wellness. I revisited my true… Continue reading Goodbye 2017.
This blog is a repost to set the foundation for the next chapter of The Chronicles of MsFit. I believe to know where we are going, we must first know where we have been. My fitness journey has taken me many places – each one brought me closer to being comfortable in my own skin.… Continue reading A-V-E-R-A-G-E: A repost.
As the crow flies straight, so to did I focus solely on my mission of running major race events this year and becoming a “runner”. Major events for me, anyways. Specializing in a way I never have. I do not know exactly how many miles I put in, though it was never enough. At least, it… Continue reading Unstrategic Planning
I cannot believe I made it here. Well, I can, but I can’t. You see it didn’t happen exactly as I had planned – but I made it all the same. I did what I said I would and that, in and of itself, is a win. Did I win? No. Not any medals anyways.… Continue reading There She Goes.
My six weeks are up. Today I ran my first 5 km trail loop since the stress fracture. You know… The one I obtained by being a little over zealous in my last race [she says to the two people who actually read her posts.. Ps. Hi Mom]. I even had to pull out of… Continue reading Goodbye Break.
Two weeks ago was a ground breaking weekend – only my second time on my mtb this year and I rode a 50km mountain stage race with ~1800m of elevation gain, followed by a 25km trail run the very next day. What was this madness called you ask? A Half Donkey. I know – awesome… Continue reading Rundle’s Revenge.
Taper (or deload for the lifters of the world) is just that. Ease off, slow down and lighten up. Call it what you will. For me this essentially means chilling out for a week before a major race. Simple, yes? No. Not quite. You see, 2 months ago my training was going exceptionally well; predictable,… Continue reading Cookie Dough & the Art of Taper.
“Not-sorry” to disappoint you drama worshipers out there, this isn’t a post about some sort of office affair. I have been MIA again to this blog blog in a good way! The last 2 months have not only been jammed packed full of training and loading and de-loading and loading back up again – I… Continue reading When Love & Work Collide
