Long time no post! I had a busy week but I’m happy to be back here on the inter webs saying hello. We had such a nice taste of sweaty summer last weekend and I loved it. Did you get outside?
Also, pro tip! Barry’s Bootcamp is raising prices on their smaller class packages (the 5-class pack) and single classes TODAY. Bigger packs stay the same price, but if you like to purchase one at a time, grab one today.
Here’s my week in workouts. Don’t forget to share yours in the comments!
Monday: REST. My hip still hurt.
Good morning, friends. I had a really fun & busy weekend which actually made it feel long! I feel like the more I pack into a weekend, the longer it feels. Anyone else find that to be true? I evidently found time to do a lot of online shopping this weekend in between running around. My Monday started with an inbox full of emails with the subject “Your package has shipped!” Please pray for flattering fits and/or free returns.
How was your weekend?
Here’s what I got into last week:
Hi friends! How is your week going? You look so nice today!
I spent so much of last week feeling so sore. I went to Barry’s 2x and the Fhitting Room once but I think it was the physical therapy session at Finish Line that really did me in. I guess I haven’t done a squat in years.
You guys know I’m a fan of the nutrition blog Summer Tomato. I stumbled upon this older post on breaking your good habits called, “The I Just Don’t Feel Like It” Fallacy. In it, Darya talks about thinking through the real reason you’re breaking a habit that’s helped you meet a goal in the past. She just gets me.
One of my favorite running bloggers, the Great Britain-based Charlotte, ran the Boston Marathon last weekend. Her recap is sure to make you smile, so I wanted to share it.
In less impressive athletic endeavors, here’s last week’s workout rundown:
I was not compensated for this post, but I did receive a complimentary session at the Urban Wellness Clinic. All opinions and most jokes are my own.
A month ago, the lovely folks at the Urban Wellness Clinic reached out and invited me to meet with Dr. Emily Kiberd, a New York City-based chiropractor and luxury wellness media expert in pain management and movement therapy.
I did a little research and learned that Urban Wellness Clinic is a sought after wellness center located in the building above Quality Italian (57th and 6th Ave), you know the place with the famed chicken parm pizza? Personally, I think it’s much too salty, but that’s commentary for a different venue.
Anyway, people seem to love Urban Wellness Clinic. Just check out their endless stream of 5-star Yelp reviews. Dr. Kiberd works with a number of New York Athletic Club athletes and Olympic hopefuls. So sure, yes, I would love to check this place out.
Hi all! Just popping in briefly to share some news. I was selected to be a NYCRuns ambassador. What does this mean for you? Race discounts on a ton of races in NYC! The team at NYCRuns gave me a handy promo code and I am excited to share the goods with you.
Use the code BC17NH at checkout and you’ll save $5 or $10. You can use the code as many times as you like.
NYCRuns produces races on behalf of organizations (usually charities) and also runs their own races. The discount code only works on NYCRuns races.
Here are some of the races coming up where the code applies:
