Hi guys! Wanted to say konnichiwa from Tokyo! Matt and I just started our honeymoon. We spent three days in Tokyo and now we are on a train bound for the mountain town of Hakone.
As for workouts, we’ve walked ten+ miles every day exploring the city. We’ve also started our mornings with quick workouts in the hotel gym. Getting a little strength in is a bonus. Plus the views from the gym aren’t bad.
Looking for tips on how to workout while you’re traveling this holiday season? Look no further.
Any favorite things to do in Osaka or Kyoto?
Hope you’re having a great day.
I did not want to run this race. I mean, I must have at some point, I signed up for it. The evening before the race the New York Road Runners (the organization that puts on the race) sent an alert indicating that due to the potential snow storm, the race might be cancelled and that they’d let us know by 6am on Saturday (race morning). I won’t lie. I hoped they’d call off the race.
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.

Hi friends! It’s a great time of year to stock up on class passes at your favorite studios and replenish your expensive running socks (at a discount, of course). I’ve listed some of the best fitness deals I’ve seen around. Please add any I’ve missed in the comments.
Oh hello! Mostly posting to create a complete 18-week recap of marathon training! Here’s what I did the week before the marathon. If you missed it, my NYC Marathon recap is here.
The goal here was to rest rest rest and also shake out my legs and nerves.
