I’m back! Training 4/21-4/27/14

I expect to feel pain in my hip whenever I walk around, and then I don’t and it is AWESOME.  I was pretty absent all last week because of exams, but I got a couple little runs in and I had a fabulous weekend and am ready for that spring/summer life.  Just a short post about the week’s runs today because I want to get going to bed soon! Wednesday: 2.36mi – The night before, I ran about halfway home from the dining hall (so maybe like 0.15mi) and my hip felt NORMAL, so I went for a short 20-minute testContinue reading

Training(ish) Recap: Week of 4/14-4/20/2014

This week was all about my hip feeling like crap.  I got really down on myself, but the last couple days I have been able to rest more than normal with it being the weekend and me not having to do much walking.  It feels like resting has really helped!  The end of the semester is here and I have exams and projects the next two weeks, with the most challenging ones over by this coming Friday.  I don’t see myself having much time to do anything but code and study this coming week, so I think I should get inContinue reading

Fitness Personality: “The Thinker”

One of my friends posted this short fitness personality test on Facebook and I was bored so I took it.  It’s really an advertisement to get people to participate in the “Rewired Trainer” program Bodybuilding.com is hosting soon, but it was a fun little quiz regardless, and I can see the results applying to running as opposed to just weight training. It says that I am “The Thinker,” which I think is pretty accurate.  You can view the whole “thinker” results sheet here if you want.  Essentially, it says I am analytical and prone to being a bit too ambitious, impatient,Continue reading

Mini #WIAW and Hip Update

Passover started on Monday night, which means I won’t be eating bread for the next week.  This morning I woke up excited to make eggs with a side of buttered matzah (pretty sure I actually dreamed about it).  Then I realized those were all the ingredients to make fried matzah, or matzah brei as it is sometimes called.  SO I got to work and within ten minutes I was a very happy camper. My roommate came down while I was eating and asked to try some.  She liked it, which I was actually surprised about, and said it tasted likeContinue reading

#alltheawards – Thanks Laura!

The very sweet Laura from The Gluten-Free Treadmill has tagged me in her #alltheawards post. 🙂 The rules! Accept the #alltheawards award, tell us seven things about you, and nominate seven more blogs. Since I only started this blog this month, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with seven things you don’t know about me yet, right…?  If I can get my mind off my hip long enough to come up with seven facts that aren’t seven injuries I’ve had in my lifetime. Happy thoughts, here goes! My go-to fun-facts fact: I’ve had four concussions from figure skating growing up.Continue reading
