    Training Log: 4/23 to 4/29 {April’s review}

    April was a good month. I had set the lofty goal of running (the whole time) a half marathon later this fall. I had planned to start semi-training during the first quarter but that really never happened. There’s no room for procrastination. I was happy to see that I did 25 miles in April. That’s pretty darn good in my book! This week I decided to follow to a T the training plan so doing to miles were never in the cards for the week. No workout was the same with making changes in the length of the intervals or just the amount to do them. The longest one was…

    Training Log: 4/16 to 4/22

    This was the first official week of training for the Wineglass Half Marathon in Corning, NY. This week my training calls for intervals of running for 1 minute and walking for 1  minutes and repeat several times. The plan called for just 30 minutes for each run but I really wanted to hit 2 miles every time. 4/16 – 2 miles 16:36 AP – I usually go out while listening to business podcasts. Today I made the change to listen to music since that what I listen to when doing a race. This run felt bad. I was rested and ready to go but having two cups of coffee right…

    Training Log: 4/1 to 4/15

    The last thing I did before ringing 2018 was getting registered to run the Wineglass Half Marathon. I haven’t run a half in two years so to say I’m rusty is a big understatement. I tried to get motivated in January to do something but had a bag full of excuses that I’m not interested in rehashing here. Now, at the 6-month mark, I started to think hard about training. My goal for this half is to get in good shape to run a decent 2:45. This would shave an hour! (yes, I know I am a slow runner don’t care ) For this first month is all about getting…

    Embracing work to be a better human

    Since my sister moved with us, it’s been a pleaseant surprise on how much I missed talking geeky topics. Topics like experimenting with adding or taking foods out of our diets or what’s the best kind of exercise for this season of life. Our conversations have been sometimes mind blowing. Then something magical happened. Since started to think about how fun those conversations are and seeing how making a few tweaks and working on developing new habits I’ve seen firsthand how well they translate to being a better person. And so, I have clarity now of what the mission for SavvyMujer must be. Now we live in a perpetual torrent…

    Tile is for the things that matter to you! (Is more than keys & wallets)

        It usually goes something like this: I pack my “business meeting” makeup bag, get ready and go to said meeting. Get back home and that means back to the home routine. A few days go by, I’m in need to go meet my bestie at the coffee shop. Cue the mad-search-oh-no-I’m-going-to-be-late music! If lucky, it will take me (just) about five minutes to find it. Other times, I have to push back the meeting time. Has this happened to you too? If you ask my husband he will tell you that I’m the reina of misplacing stuff. Thank goodness for Tile. Tile is the world’s best-selling Bluetooth tracker.…
