Oh, hello there. Happy Fall, people. My shin/ankle/calf situation acted up this week, so I modified a bit. I love having a workout schedule but I love having a pain-free ankle more, so I’m being flexible.
Before I get into the weekly rundown, I wanted to share an awesome, usable nutrition blog I’ve been reading. It’s called Meals for Miles. Kelly is a registered dietitian (MS, RD) and shares healthy, NYC-based food information and I’m looking forward to taking her advice. Unlike other food-focused blogs, not every post requires I have a food processor (or the energy/interest in cleaning a food processor). She’s a runner and her posts are interesting and accessible.
Week in review:
Sunday: I didn’t work out!
Monday: I went to a mixed level Physique 57 with my friend Yael
Tuesday: Ran 4 miles in Central Park
Wednesday: Attended the NTC x modelFIT collab at the Elevated Acre
Thursday: I was meant to go to running school but my shin was bothering me (again) and so I decided to skip it. I ended up doing a 6-min Ballet Beautiful ab video just to do something. It was so hard. Mary Helen Bowers is a maniac.
Friday: 3 mile run. My shin was still bothering me so I took it slow
Saturday: 5 mile run in Vermont. (I was in Jamaica, Vermont for a wedding.) This was my longest run in 14 months. When I set out to run it was 30 degrees. COLD. The hills were tough, but overall I felt okay.
Afterward I went on a short, beautiful hike on the Long Trail. with Matt’s family.

in honor of @nycmarathon week, trail running expert #caseystein asked me to share this inspirational video of her approaching the finish line at last weekend's elite Vermont invitational with her close amigos @mattstein7 @ktbrookie @jonsilvio @bne999 @adsinghhh. She is available for any fueling questions you may have (pro-tip: eating more than 2 acorns mid-race will make you throw up)
