Friday Fitness Links: Eat More Chocolate

Oh, Friday, how I love thee. Friday means a light school day, work day and date night. And what’s on tap for date night this week?

Drumroll, please…

Golden Gloves Finals!!!! (are they the Finals? I don’t really know. I’m just the arm candy tonight) The event itself isn’t not nearly as interesting as the spectators themselves and the way that they react to the fights. So fun.

And don’t forget to stop by the lululemon athletica store on E. 66th St. & 3rd Ave. between 8:30-10am THIS SUNDAY for the Star Studded Total Body Tune-Up, hosted by yours truly. You know how I’ve never missed a marathon due to injury (or anything else)? Come and find out why, courtesy of Dr. Shure and Lara Benusis. It’ll be fun! Stay for yoga! Stay for run club!

In other news, eat more chocolate.

Ok, everybody. Have an amazing weekend and I hope to see all of you on Sunday morning! Come by any time between 8:30-10am. Run fast. Run far.

Now go out and run!

Friday Fitness News: Bandit Fail

Hey ya’ll! So, I was so Fired Up yesterday (and don’t EVEN get me started on how The Devil Rush Limbaugh is perpetuating the stereotype that women who exercise their reproductive rights are sluts…I will not be able to contain myself if we get going on THAT man) that I forgot to apologize for Wednesday’s blog fail.

Blog? What blog? I want to play with my butterfly.

It was a craaaaaaazy day. I tried, and failed, to blog one-handed while getting my IV treatment, which was administered in my doctor’s actual office since they were so packed! Thankfully, me and Boz are cool and he was like, “I know you gotta get to lab so let’s hang your IV off the shelf and you can stay here.” Thanks, Boz & KAP for getting me to class on time! I suffered through Physics lab (Dear God, please just let me get through this one last class! Amen.) and worked late. I was a very tired Abby when I walked through my apartment door at 8:00pm to find my husband asleep on the couch. I was out by 8:30. We’re party animals, I know. Don’t be jealous.

He's not hiding. He's sleeping.

This weekend should be low-key for me. I’m still celebrating my 6 mile run outside on Tuesday night and hopeful that I’ll be able to repeat that on Sunday. Who knows? I might just be on the mend. But enough about me, here’s what’s news out there in the fitness world. I tell ya, it’s getting ugly in Yogaland.

Have a great weekend, everyone! Good luck to all who are racing. Anybody marathon-ing this weekend? I want to hear all about it.

Now go out and run!




Friday Fitness News: Party Time!

Celebrate good times, COME ON!!!

Kool and the Gang know what’s up. This is gonna be me tonight! Celebrating my acceptance to NYU (hopefully people will come!) with my friends and family.

AND to make things even better, one of my oldest, bestest friends in the wide world is in town with her husband. I get to show her Central Park. We will, of course, be running on Saturday morning and then taking them to only the coolest spots in town. Can’t wait.

Let the fun begin! But first, let’s catch up on the Fitness News this week.

And then there's this ad from New York Sport Club

And there you go. Comments? Questions? Did I miss something? Holler back, ya’ll.

Now go out and run!

Fitness News of…Last Week

Thanks for all the congrats on the interview, everyone! It went well and now it’s just a waiting game. More interviews to come and, hopefully, one seriously awesome letter (or phone call, I’ll take either) from my chosen university in the mail soon so that I can sleep at night.

These eyes should be shut.

‘Til then, here’s the Fitness News you might have missed last week.

Did I miss anything? Let me know! In the mean time, this is the first week back at school for me. Last semester as an undergrad/post-bac. I cannot WAIT to start my doctorate program this summer. Bring it!

Yeeeeaaaah, this is officially gonna be me...some day.

Now go out and run!
