Getting my life in order (maybe)

Starting this week,  I was supposed to begin a new fitness routine. Ummmm yeah, so that did not pan out too well.

For some reason, I had an intense craving for ceviche, so I met a friend in Jackson Heights to get my ceviche … and then some.

Lima Restaurant and Bar|Jackson Heights, Queens

After ceviche and pisco sours, we ended up going to a Mexican restaurants for “good” margaritas; I just had tequila on the rocks. Then, we ended up going to a goddamn club …. on a Sunday night. Needless to say, I was pretty hungover most of Monday and didn’t make it to the gym. I could not even survive my 16-hr fast, and I had to get eggs and home fries at Tom’s Restaurant. You may recognize this diner from Seinfeld.


Proposed plan


  • Weightlifting or Abs and Ass class
  • Zumba


  • Run
  • Weightlifting (maybe)

Wednesday and Thursday: Date nights – no workouts. Maybe I could do some Yoga in the morning . . . if I can wake up early enough.


  • X-training or
  • Run or
  • Beachbody on Demand

  • Beachbody on Demand (Cize)

Since this is supposed to be a running blog, I’ve kind of lost my way for a while due to various injuries. It is kind of sad that Dec. 31st was my last race, but I think that I’m ready to get back on the road. I’m a little scared to start running again, because I have not done so in so long. I have signed up to run the Japan Run (4M; May 13th) and Italy Run by Ferrero (5M; June 3rd). During April (hopefully), I can start getting a decent baseline so I can actually train for the NYC Marathon in November.

Outside of these two races, I am considering running one of these Rock n Roll Series Half Marathons:

  • Virginia Beach, Sept. 01 – 02 because it’s my hometown. VB_17_CourseMap_Half_only_final
  • Philadelphia, September 15 – 16 PHI_18_CourseMap_V3_022718_JW-1
  • Montreal, September 22-23rd

Ok, time to do some work. . . I guess. Well, I think that I will have a cigarette first.
