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, […]

Running, Intervals, and Server Downtime!

By |

First! The server exploded, sorry about that. We had a prolonged downtime this week (the first since starting the blog up!) due to some hardware failures. Once the hardware was fixed, I had a heck of a time getting the settings working with our network again. Let me know if there are any lingering effects!

So, […]

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!

By |

This is the second post of my 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!

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

Finding the Funny!

By |

Like the great comedian Tammy Pescatelli says, “You gotta find the funny”

Last night Ellie and I made use of our Catalyst Fitness membership and got in some much-needed cardio. I’ve been struggling to get back onto the treadmill / running in general for a while now. I start out alright, but after about ten minutes my […]

Bucket List 2017!

By |

Guys, we made it. We got through the hellish trek through time that was 2016—the pain, the heartache, the loss . . . the weight gain. As Jon and I sit here on the morning of January 1, 2017, watching an episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy that’s talking about clogged arteries and bacon […]

Reflecting on Five Years of Running

By |

Five years ago today, Ellie and I ran our first official 5k road race. We did a very small local run sponsored by Medaille College. Ellie had run for years prior to this on and off, while I had really just started to do so to get in shape with the blog. Both of us were […]

Ready, Set, 2016!

By |

Hello Fat Nerds, it’s Adrienne!

It has certainly been a while, hasn’t it!? I don’t even remember the last time I posted, which is a pretty bad sign. My successful weight loss and fitness progress have always directly correlated with how often I write on this fabulous blog. And, as you can see from the past […]

Week One of Personal Training Complete!

By |

Ellie and I wrapped up our first week of personal training sessions on Saturday, and boy oh boy was it eye-opening.

We joined up with Mustache Fitness and Barebell, based on numerous recommendations, and after seeing how much Erika has kicked ass with him, we thought it would be a good fit. His focus is on […]

Four Week Training Recap

By |

On Saturday we officially wrapped up our fourth week of half marathon training with a fairly successful eight mile run. I would be lying to say it felt great physically, but mentally it was a major step forward.

I’ve been dealing with a respiratory disaster in the form of a pretty severe chest cold for over […]
