Cabin Fever: a workout game

Snow days are fun! We’re outside long enough to get cold and tired. Then we cozy up by the fire with a blanket and warm drink. Nothing but But ice days? They’re not as fun. The whole slip and break…

The New Nike Training Club App

As most of you know (because I won’t shut up about it), I’ve been using the NTC app for years now. Using the NTC has been a game-changer for me in terms of working out on my own –…

A workout worth repeating

Last Friday (four days ago) I did a workout that I only just recovered from yesterday. Whew weeee! I wanted to really focus on my lower body and keep my heart rate up the entire time, so I paired…
