Zwift Workouts Are Kicking My Butt!

By |

Update on the Zwift Sessions! A couple of weeks ago I did a post about biking in secret in my basement using a system called Zwift. Zwift for those of you who haven’t read my last post, is an interactive virtual biking system that uses sensors on my actual road bike to estimate distance, speed, […]

Synchronized Swimming Looks Impossible

By |

Last night Ellie and I were at the pool getting some laps in and working on my abysmal somersault. Like literally it took me over thirty minutes to be able to do one. While we were swimming there was a full team of synchronized swimmers working on learning an underwater maneuver. We couldn’t help but […]

Weigh-In and Chain-Game are Back!

By |

Since it is a brand new year, and we here at 2FNS love to keep track of numbers and publicly shame ourselves, I wanted to quickly let everyone know that on Wednesday the Weigh-In Wednesday post will be making a return!

Historically, every Wednesday I collect information using our tracking system. Workouts can be logged and […]

New Year, Playoffs, and Looking Forward to 2018

By |

Happy 2018!
I want to wish everyone a great new year and happy holiday season. The past few weeks were a ton of fun, full of friends family, and exciting changes on the horizon. Also, THE BILLS MADE THE PLAYOFFS. Who could have asked for a better ending to an otherwise bizarre year.

I think it’s clear […]

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 2/50 : Mieux vaut tard que jamais!

With Ellie busy doing a Reform Fitness class tonight, this was my first solo run of the training block. Technically it […]

Carley said I can eat bagels and donuts.

By |

The title is not fake news. He really said it.

I’ve been struggling with personal training recently. I have seen decent gains on my upper-body strength, but my weight-loss and discipline have been very much lacking. I just wasn’t feeling it. At the start of March, we moved to three days a week, which was supposed to get […]

First 5K of 2017, Thoughts and Feelings

By |

All day on Friday I was feeling pretty restless, and I knew that I wanted to get out and go for a run. Work has been incredibly, incredibly slow for the past couple of weeks, and I think sitting around and doing busy work has left me feeling a little blah. Unfortunately Ellie wasn’t feeling […]

What did we do…. Boilermaker 2017 Here We Come!

By |

Well, we obviously did not learn from the past very well. We are once again running the Boilermaker 15K in Utica, New York. For those of you not familiar with the race, here are some interesting tidbits about one of our favorite, feared, and mythical races on our schedule.

The average temperature is 69.97 degrees, with […]
