Switching Gears (lol): Training Plan For February

By |

I cracked myself up with the title of today’s post. I’ve been bicycling quite a bit on Zwift over the past six weeks, closing out my first full FTP Build program. With only two workouts to go, it is about that time that Ellie and I are switching gears (get it? like a bike gear?) […]

Weigh-In Wednesday February 6, 2019: Ice in the Air!

By |

Woke up to incredibly icy streets and trees today! Be careful out there, everyone!

As per the norm here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a weigh-in day, where we publicly shame encourage our members to share their workouts and weight numbers for the past week. It’s all about accountability, and earning those sweet anti-fat […]

Lake Effect 1, Buffalo 0. Home Gym to the Rescue!

By |

I love Buffalo at the end of January. The Lake Erie monster knocks on our door step, making everyone rush home from work early and grab a six-pack of their favorite beer. Our local politicans even instruct our city’s residents on how much to buy, based on the late Mayor Jimmy Griffin.

Winter arrives tonight. Nothing […]

Skating at Ives Park!

By |

Over the weekend, hockey-mentor Julien called me up and said we were heading to the ponds for some pick up hockey. Who was I to disagree? I grabbed my gear, including my Garmin watch, and met up with him at Ives Park in Tonawanda. To my surprise, this is a rather popular spot for some […]

Cabins in Allegany!

By |

Over the weekend, Ellie, a group of our friends, and I headed down south of Buffalo to Allegany State Park. Allegany is right on the New York-Pennsylvania border, nestled in to the hills of Cattaraugus County. Despite a prediction of heavy snowfall, we braved the elements and had an awesome weekend.

A weather forecast of sub-zero […]

Ride or Die: Winter Running

By |

I’ve seen *~*beauty gurus*~* on YouTube publish “Ride or Die” videos with their favorite makeup and skin care products (and get overly excited when we have a product in common), so I thought it would be interesting to figure out what my all-time-favorite, can’t-live-without-it winter running accoutrement are. I’ve landed on my top five.

I’m sure […]

Yeast Confections: Brewing an Oktoberfest Märzen

By |

This is the first post in a new series we have lovingly titled Yeast Confections! We are going to document our brewing, baking, kombucha-making, and microbial explorations semiregularly!

The cycle of beer continues with the successful depletion of our Scotch Ale (a.k.a. Girvan Bevy). With that, I called up the crew to make a new batch […]

Why We Ditched the Boilermaker, and a Recap of Run 716!

By |

Last time I wrote a blog post, I was covering our early stages of training leading up to the Boilermaker 2017. As many of you know, my entire family ended up transferring our bibs and registered our first (unofficial) DNS.

Coming to the decision to drop out was not easy. The Boilermaker is one of our […]

Boilermaker 4/6/7 out of 50!

By |

This is the thrd post of my semi-daily recap of all 50 runs on the way to the 2017 Boilermaker. It is going to be a short post format with just notes that we can review. Enjoy!

Hello! I slacked over the weekend on getting posts up, but for the most part we haven’t slacked on our […]

The Journey to a Stronger Upper Body Begins!

By |

As I am slowly approaching my target weight (only about seven pounds to go), Carley our trainer at Mustache Fitness and Barbell, has been encouraging me to focus on my upper body strength. Though I have seen progress since beginning last fall on my arm definition and strength, I am a long ways away from […]
