Good morning everyone! Happy Wednesday : ) Fit Crasher here with a few fun updates to share. Truth is, I didn’t quite make it to my scheduled fit crash this week thanks to the joys of DC traffic congestion, so instead I’ve decided to take the editorial liberty of making this week’s post a little different. Here’s what I’ve been up to…
First things first: just because I didn’t get to crash a new spot this week doesn’t mean I haven’t been sweating up a storm all over DC. The holiday season has really done a number on my regularly scheduled classes, but I’ve been getting my endorphin fix on the trails and at the gym instead. Early mornings and late nights, my friends, but it’s better than nothing!
This week’s favorites include a sunrise run along the Potomac with a new running buddy, solo bootcamp at the Georgetown waterfront park (a beautiful spot to workout), and a self-induced interval workout that looked something like this:
200 meter row
20 kettle bell swings
20 box jump burpees
20 man makers
10 assisted pull ups
I really liked this one – filing it away for later. If you’re looking for a quick and effective tush kicking, try it and let me know what you think. Phew!
Last week I won a juice sampler pack from DC’s newest juicery JRINK, a company that delivers fresh cold-pressed juices right to your door each week. How cool is that? I had been hearing lots of good buzz about their product and was excited to try them out. On the menu: (1) Pineapple, Apple, & Mint (2) Orange, Carrot, Grapefruit, & Ginger (3) Pear, Kale, Cucumber, Romaine & Lemon.
They were all super tasty, but if I had my pick out of the three I’d choose the green juice. Why? Because it has the best veggie to fruit ratio. Don’t get me wrong, the others were delish, but I don’t regularly drink fruit juice so I just don’t see myself ordering them again. JRINK has other flavor options online, including a beet/carrot concoction and an upcoming almond milk/cinnamon/vanilla combo, so I see some more taste testing in my future!
When I started the blog last year, I hit the ground running (literally) and posted every day. The breakneck pace just wasn’t sustainable for me. So I took a little blog haitus, a deep breath, and reemerged a few months ago posting once a week.
I’d like to take a stab at expanding the content on the blog again…so soon you’ll notice additional posts each week. (Cue the confetti and balloons!)
I’ll be featuring more of my workouts, my attempts at eating healthy meals, and reader questions – many of which I’ve answered personally via email but want to share with the rest of you. If you have other ideas of what you’d like to see, send me a note!
