When my husband cooks, he cooks with high heat and iron skillets. It’s his thing. The result, often times, is a house filled with smoke. Combine this with an old, ineffectual stove vent and you have the recipe for burning eyes and choking lungs.
Recently, I was upstairs doing something or other while he was [...]
Sometimes things don’t go as planned. The workouts on the schedule don’t, well, work out. Or the schedule doesn’t cooperate. Or, as in today, both situations co-occured and led me down a different non-running path altogether.
Those of you who read this on a regular basis (you gluttons) know about the Total Gym Sled. The [...]
After getting dropped last Sunday, I came back to the Blue Jay Point ride for more punishment cleverly disguised as another “easy 60″. I am a glutton. Yes.
The difference, I hoped, would be looser glutes that don’t feel like they’re tearing to pieces and actually work when called upon plus nearly non-existent training the day [...]
So whatcha been doin’ Alicia? Rrap Aicilia? Where’s the A-Parr-Tay?
Darn hip/glute/knee. Well, I haven’t been running, I tell you that. So what put me over the edge? Could it be my whopping 30-40 miles a week in November? Oh come ON! No way. I ran easy. On trails.
Maybe I should skip the leg [...]
The day before the race it rained and rained. Oh boy are those trails going to be muddy Morning came early as usual and the good news is my sore glute was feeling much better. I felt pretty good, actually. And it was a clear, cool day. Great running weather.
Alisha & I warmed up [...]
It’s here! The replacement part for the Total Gym! Total what? Total Gym sled doohicky, that’s what. A swim specific exercise machine that my parents bought for the swim team a couple decades ago or so. It’s been in storage for nearly 20 years and a part was lost during one of the moves, but [...]
So I’m doing my short little easy runs Wednesday-Thursday and I’m having that usual doubting worry that maybe I won’t be recovered in time to feel OK to race Saturday. Yeah, I know. I did a lot of work the past month. Not intense, but a lot by my standards. I did spin class and weights [...]
Or so sez me in my fashion world of one.
So what’s the hot hot hot style tip from the A-Parr-Tay? Liss’n up ladies, it’s all about bra avoidance, particularly those heinous underwire versions. But the men too can follow this latest trend, even though most of you probably aren’t sporting underwire bras. Hopefully. Or, [...]
Talk about media attention for Grand Columbian, apparently my fifteen minutes of notoriety has even hit the internet airwaves. Check out what Brett found:
Hey, by the way, I saw your new post on Recent Press, and ironically, I heard some about you today. I was listening to the Ironman Talk Podcast, one from September [...]
My husband found this write up in TriFuel about the Grand Columbian. I get quite a mention. Yay!
