Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah…

It is getting really hard to make this post each week when I do the same Iron Girl Workout.  You are probably wondering why I do this workout week after week.  I guess I do it for a couple of reasons.  I like getting on the bike, I really think it is helping my runs.  The strength training is a killer workout.  Need I say more... … [Read more...]

What? No Sport Beans!

Ok, so the Easter Bunny didn't leave me a basket full of sport beans,  so I took Easter as a rest day.  I could bearly move after the stupid run on Saturday.  If I could have chopped of my left leg I would have been fine.  So for the next few days you will hear nothing but blogs from the saddle. … [Read more...]

Those Girls are Tough!

Monday's recovery workout was once again the Coach Troy's "UltraConditioning 3.0 - Ultra Full Body" or  Iron Girl Workout.  All I can say about this workout is that those girls are tough!  By the end of the workout I had trouble lifting my arms from my side.  The 1:20 workout incorporates strength conditioning with interval tempo training.  Jumping on and off the bike to do strength training with … [Read more...]
