Happy Monday, guys! If you live on the east coast are you preparing for the blizzard that’s coming our way? How do you ready yourself? Do you have a go-to storm shopping list? I’m already stir crazy just thinking about the weather. I was going to bear witness to the madness at my local Whole Foods, but Matt assures me we can walk to Shun Lee in case of emergency.

New Yorkers: Do you order in during a storm? It’s a city-dwellers ethical dilemma.

Last week was a great one and it ended with my first-ever Cycle for Survival experience.

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:

Monday: Didn’t workout
Tuesday: Did some PT exercises in my apartment
Wednesday: Didn’t work out
Thursday: 4.3 mile run in DC

I love running around the monuments in DC. Here was my 4.3 mile route.

Happy Monday! Did you have a long weekend? Did you do anything fun? I spent the weekend in Great Barrington, Massachusetts (I had a hair and make up trial for my wedding!!!). Here’s how I spent the last week in workouts.

Monday: Nothing
Tuesday: Lyon’s Den Power Yoga hour-long class with Matt (Hey, it was Valentine’s Day!) They played power ballads and it was taught by John Murray who was an awesome instructor. Sign me up for more.

Now for this week’s workout diary!

Every time I worked out last week

Monday: I took a walk in Jamaica State Park in Vermont with the ski crew. The trail was a sheet of ice. The first thing I thought when got out of the car was: “Oh, here is where I sprain my ankle.” But luckily no such accident occurred.
