Cramming It All in While I Can In typical Debbie fashion, I intentionally planned out a busy week of workouts in anticipation of being sidelined for up to two weeks after a scheduled surgical procedure on Friday morning. Expecting warnings of not pulling my stitches with my active lifestyle, I ran, I lifted weights, and […]

And That’s a Wrap on Summer Vacations After a week at the farm with my Mom, Bill and I spent four whirlwind days at the beach before calling it quits on our summer getaways until after the baby arrives. Normally, we spend the third week of July visiting my mom and at least a week […]

We’re Back, Baby I walked out of the 55+ community gym on March 12, 2020, and as a non-resident, I wasn’t cleared to return until two weeks ago. Once the clubhouse opened up to normal hours and without temperature checks, hourly closings for cleanings, etc., management wanted to get it back to normal as quickly […]

Leading Up to the Break The days leading up to our trip to Florida were jam packed with workouts in anticipation of a few down days while on vacation. Usually our vacations are either spent at the farm or at our family beach house when we have time to enjoy the ease of relaxing hikes, […]

  It’s time to sit down once again with a beverage of your choice and chat – I’ll remind you that I don’t like coffee or tea so my drink of choice today will be water. Let’s chat about things other than just running, cycling, training, and complaining about our most recent injuries. Sound good? […]

Weekly RunDown: May 9 – 15 / Riding My Third Metric Century Distance

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links…   First “Official” Metric Century in the Books I focused on making sure my workouts leading up to our Tour de Madison Metric Century were front ended on the week so I’d have a couple of days rest toward the end of the week. It was a great strategy […]

Weekly RunDown: April 11 – 17 / First Live Race in Seventeen Months

A Plan is Just a Plan Last week as I planned my workouts leading up to my LIVE race on Saturday morning, I thought hard about what workouts I might want to skip so my legs would be fresh – I’m starting to notice my recovery after workouts takes longer as I’m getting older. I […]

Here We Go Again Even though we didn’t host Easter on Sunday, I had plenty enough Easter candy filling my cute bowls and baskets to feed a small army – candies wrapped to look like Easter eggs, M&M’s in spring pastels, and the mandatory chocolate Easter bunny… It’s funny, I have complete self control and […]

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links…   Visiting the Farm I’m visiting the farm for about a week and enjoying the change in scenery.
