It finally felt good again…..

Now that is a high quality picture for ya… try running and taking a picture of yourself at the same time.  Don’t worry, I only tripped once. You know how my ‘long’ run on Saturday felt like death?!?!  Well, today finally felt a little bit more normal and dare I say it almost felt good:)   I did 8 miles with a 1% incline at an average pace of 8:16. Maybe the run felt so good because of the industrial […]

I don’t know what my deal was…..

But I could not stop drinking water during my workout this morning because I had an unquenchable thirst. -The gym was the same temperature as always. -I drank more than enough water yesterday (I peed twice during the night to prove it). -My workout was the same level of intensity as usual. -My hair was obviously not making me any hotter (temperature or looks wise) because it was completely slicked back. -It literally felt like the water was going down […]

12 kind of a night…..

Remember how I said I was going to go get a hard-core lifting session in with the sis last night? We went and my arms are sore today.  We were about to jump on the elliptical after lifting but then we looked outside.  It was dusk and the perfect temperature so we decided to go on a long walk instead.  Best decision ever.  We had a very bipolar conversation consisting of about 43 laughing attacks (about things like some very […]

This morning was glorious.  I slept in. No gym for this woman.  I am going tonight with my sis to get some hard core lifting in and so Wednesday morning was meant for getting out of bed at 7:21 and making it to school at 7:45. I know some of you don’t believe me but I am not exaggerated at all on the above statement.  The key to taking less than 10 minutes to get ready for work is to […]

As I am working with mis sports medicine doctor (he is also BYU’s athletes doctor) we have come up with an awesome plan for me to get me ready to RUN the NY Marathon (slowly with lots of breaks) and avoid another injury while training. BIlly came with me just to make sure I didn’t accidently overexaggerate what the doctor said I could and could not do. ie Doctor says, ‘Janae, you shouldn’t run the marathon.’ Janae says, ‘Billy, the […]

Hood to Coast

Yes, the first joint purchase Billy and I ever made together was a tv the size of our wall.  We stil do not own a washer or dryer and yes, we still have to use towels to block the holes in our house that lead directly to the outside world to prevent critters from getting into our house.  Our priorities are right on. I was sent the sports documentary ‘Hood to Coast’ to review.  I  raced home from church yesterday, […]

WOW. While I was running on my treadmill this morning I watched an Ironman documentary on Hulu that a reader recommended for me to watch.  It was beyond incredible.  I cried 4 times throughout my run because of the show.  Poor Billy had to listen to it at 6 a.m. too because I had the volume up so loud because I wanted to soak up every word of their experience. I highly recommend watching it whether you are a triathlete/runner/athlete/biker […]
