Reader Annabelle shared an awesome article yesterday that counters the claims that the New York Times made about Lolo Jones being all about image. It’s really good. Read it.

And speaking of the Olympics, congrats to Keri and Misty! So happy for them to three-peat. It will be so weird to see Keri compete without Misty at her side.

This has been by far one of the hardest weeks I’ve had since we’ve moved to NYC. I have been in a state of exhaustion for the entire week, and while I’ve cut out my Mountain Dew for breakfast, I just feel blah. I feel stressed because I need to work on a lot of things (especially for the wedding) and by time I get home from work, I just want to go to bed. I just don’t feel excited about living here.

Wah, wah, right?

I know you are supposed to listen to your body (hey, it’s something that I preach!), but if I would have listened to my body this week, I’m pretty sure I would have lived in bed and drank a case of Mountain Dew while chowing down on a few bags of Sour Patch Kids.

Yesterday I told you that the only way I got myself out of bed was to say that today was a rest day. I wasn’t going to let that happen. Neither was this guy.


He sat outside our bedroom door meowing incessantly until I let him in. I think he wanted attention, but I took it as a sign that I needed to hit the road. I did five miles with 10 telephone pole sprints in between. I like running sprints (but still have not found a track that I can go to here… don’t get me wrong, there are tracks but I refuse to travel for an hour to get there) because they make me feel fast! They switch up the routine, too.

I finished up with my ab routine, including my longest plank EVER.


Wahoo! #plankaday love! I think it’s making me stronger. Thinking I should do one every day until the wedding!

All in all, I’m happy that I lied to myself and made myself get up this morning. Now I can look forward to a real rest day tomorrow. And perhaps some extra sleep in the next few days!


How do you get through a hard week? Do you agree that you never regret a workout?
