To Run Again

After a major grouchfest on Sunday, I have been really analyzing my relationship with fitness and running in particular. I’ve been out for about two and a half months now because of my injury and I’ve just started getting back into it. I’d done some intervals at physical therapy, but it wasn’t until Dylan sat … More To Run Again

Three Steps Back

This injury has really reeked havoc on my weight loss attempts, though I know I can’t blame my lack of progress on that alone.  My exercise has been halted, it’s true, but I could have kept up with my nutrition.
