Compression Clothes — You Decide!

By |

I came across the recent NPR article discussing compression performance wear, and thought it would be interesting to hear from those among us who wear them.

The long held belief is that the socks increase blood flow and thus aid in recovery time. They have been used in the medical industry for many years to help treat […]

The Smile-and-Nod in Buffalo

By |

Buffalo is a very friendly city. I am confident making this deduction after having walked and/or run through a number of cities. People will start chatting with you while you’re walking; they’ll share stories and joke with you. Heck, even outside the city, Buffalove runs deep. One summer on Cape Cod, we were driving in […]

Paying Attention to My Nutrition Is Hard

By |

Now that Jon and I are training for a half marathon and have a few weddings this summer that we’d like to be in better shape for, I’ve been logging meals, water intake, and exercise in My Fitness Pal nearly daily. I’ve used the app on and off for a couple of years now, and I’ve […]

Hitting Your Stride Takes Time

By |

I’ve been talking with a bunch of people at work about running recently, some of who were pretty active last spring and summer. We had a good group that would go out in the late afternoon for a nice group run, which was both an awesome way to build synergy with the lab personnel, as […]

Spaghetti Squash Bolognese

By |

I feel like it has been 9 years since I did a blog post. I apologize! Wedding planning, hitting the gym 5 days a week, working 5 days a week, weekends away and a part time job on some weekends have really filled up my days. Mike and I officially hit the “3 months to […]

The Anatomy of A Good Workout Playlist: Flexibility

By |

We’ve talked about music as a source of inspiration during workouts many times on this blog over the past few years, and yet I still find myself constantly overhauling my track lineup.

The individualistic nature of music makes it hard to make recommendations. While I perform best to Britney Spears – Work B**ch, others might not. How […]

Honestly, I want to see you be brave.

By |

As some of you may have noticed from the scrolling list of public workouts, I’ve been going to yoga classes once or twice a week since the beginning of the year. Yoga has always been something I’ve really wanted to like, but always found myself in classes that were either too challenging or full of […]
