As you know, I love working out with friends. I’m a really social person, and I love working out, so kill two birds with one stone? Yes, please!

Propel’s challenge to us for this month was to work out with a buddy—doing their workout.

I’ve known Liz for a while through Uplif…

Learning to Swim for Triathlons: Stroke

Learning to Swim for Triathlons: Stroke

When I was born, my grandpa asked my parents where I was going to learn how to swim.

“Um, I don’t know. How do we teach her how to talk, how to walk, how to become a decent person when she grows up?” was probably the answer.

And so, my kind grandfather built a pool in his backyard (which, he obviously got just a little bit of use out of, too) and I took swimming lessons there growing up. Both the…

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week 6

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week 6

Happy Tuesday! I skipped over Week 5’s training log last week because…I just didn’t feel like it. My coach told me to take a recovery week and do whatever non-tri workouts I wanted. I ended up doing a little running, swimming and biking anyway, since I sort of like all of them now, but it was nice to not have any set workouts I absolutely had to do. I also took a Peloton class, a yoga class and a

Every once in a while, a month holds so much promise and excitement, I can’t help but tell you how excited I am for those upcoming 28-31 days. This month promises to be extra awesome.

The Novelty of It

This morning, as I biked up to meet Jen, I thought about what a nice change of pace it was.

Why I Do It

Why I Do It

The planner in me wants to put up my weekly training log, as I usually do on Monday or Tuesday.

The writer in me wants to share some random training musings with you.

Since I’m a writer trapped in a NYC professional’s body, I’m going to indulge the writer side and throw the editorial calendar in my head out the window.

This morning, I overslept and totally woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I…

Upgrading to a Road Bike

Upgrading to a Road Bike

After my lackluster tri, it was clear that I needed a new bike. 

Giant Dash 3 Hybrid

My old hybrid was great while I was learning about biking, but I’m going to be riding 56 miles after swimming 1.2 and before running 13.1. I need as efficient a bike as I can get. But I’m still going to be realistic: there was no way I was going to drop thousands of dollars on a bike when who knows how into biking I’ll get?

My First (Athletic) Love

My First (Athletic) Love

Yesterday was a fabulous day! One of my friends is from Toronto (eh?), and belongs to some private club there that has reciprocal privileges with the New York Athletic Club

The New York Athletic Club has a clubhouse in the city, but more importantly, has a clubhouse in Pelham Manor, just outside the city, called Travers Island.

I interviewed the Tone It Up girls, and they gave us one of their fave bikini workouts. I did not, however, get their abs just by talking to them. #sad

Princeton 70.3 Half Ironman Training: Week 4

Princeton 70.3 Half Ironman Training: Week 4

One month down, three to go!

Between the Heartbreak Hill Half weekend and then last weekend’s tri, there was also a decent amount of rest last week so my body could recover.

Monday: I was supposed to do a recovery ride of 40-45 minutes. I had a Junior League meeting after work, so my only time to work out was in the morning, and I just couldn’t get out of bed, so I took the rest.

Tuesday: I had…
