I am still here

Hi guys. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! Did you run a Turkey Trot? Tell me about it!

Apologies for my absenteeism. It’s not your fault.

And no, I didn’t forget my WordPress password, I’ve just been a little less tethered to my laptop recently. It felt kind of amazing. But I’m back in action and back to business.

Did anyone take advantage of any Black Friday or Cyber Monday fitness class discounts? I stocked up on SLT and Refine Method.

I tried SLT a while ago (and wrote about it here). Those with excellent memories will note, I didn’t love it. After the NYC Marathon I was in the market for a tough, low-impact workout and SLT fit the bill so I decided to give it another chance.  They also opened a studio on the Upper West Side which put them in my good graces and zone of existence. This time I made sure to try an Intro-level class before diving it. It made a big difference. The teacher moved slowly, explaining every move and the music was muted enough to hear instruction. I didn’t feel out of my element.


I am finding SLT to be an incredible workout. I sweat and shake as my muscles work but there is no jumping or impact whatsoever. I think it’s what I need post-marathon. Also, the UWS location is a bit lower key than the Flatiron spot, as in I’m definitely not the oldest person there.

So here’s my last week in workouts (Nov 27- Dec 3)

Monday: Nada
Tuesday: 3-mile run + SLT
Wednesday: 6-mile run
Thursday: SLT
Friday: Nada
Saturday: SLT
Sunday: 7-mile run

Running is still hard. But at least I’m not choking on my own sweat.

How have you been?

    Gorgeous fall colors photo!
    My Black Friday-ing was the Mile HIgh deal I told you about. Finally pushed myself to try Distance, I’m downgrading back to HIgh45 for sure for a bit, although being on the verge of getting sick didn’t help.
