All the workouts: 4/23- 4/30

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.

All the workouts: Plush Fitness, recovery and some must reads

After a week of skiing and running I wanted to make sure to rest before the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler.  I try not to work out too much before a race and that makes this week’s recap a little light. Here is what I think about that:

All the workouts: Lots of goodies edition

Good morning. Excuse me as I hit you up with some random goodies. 

Last week the New York Road Runners announced the results of the NYC Marathon lottery. Did any one get in? I’m running NYC (and it’s my first ever marathon) this year and would love to know if any readers/friends will be training too. Let me know in the comments! I received guaranteed entry through the NYRR 9+1 program. If you didn’t get in, but want to run, there are two ways to still score a bib. Learn more here.

Anyone else love the Lego movies? Check out this awesome bike helmet that gives you Lego hair.  (I think Matt needs it.)

All the workouts: February Fitness Edition

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did anyone else get stuck in Saturday’s torrential downpour? I sure did.

Also, help a sister out: Is anyone registered to run the Lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon this August? I was thinking of signing up and TOTALLY blanked and now of course it’s long sold out. Anyone have a bib (or two bibs) they’d like to offload?

One more thing, you know, while you’re here. I have entry to the NYC Marathon this November. (AHHH!) I’m already nervous! Does anyone have a first-timers marathon training plan to recommend? SEND IT MY WAY!

Here is a review of this week’s workouts:
