Last week’s workouts weren’t terribly exciting nor were they dull.  I guess I’ve got the mid January blah’s with the holiday’s over and nothing exciting happening any time soon. I wanted routine and I got it. Monday 30 minutes Arc Trainer hill focus strength training: bench press split squat reverse lunge cable row side bench […]

While I was driving in the car yesterday, the DJ on the radio talked about a recent poll that said 40% of Americans believe they are “too old” to work out. First of all – WHAT?!?!?!? Want to know what the “too old” age is? 41 Yes, that’s right, 41. And that’s not 41 in […]

Last week’s workouts were a good mix of running, strength training, yoga and doing whatever I wanted.  I’m purposely laying low on mileage because my Achilles is still puffy.  It’s not hurting (thankfully) but I’ve upped my eccentric calf stretches just to be on the safe side.  And with my parents in town for Christmas, […]
