Running in Sexy, Pink High Heels: yes or no?


Sure, the pink Oh! shoes are cute and comfortable, but has athletic shoe technology really married Italian fashion design, as they claim? I decided to put them to the test, with a little help from my running partner’s baby. I say yes. Yes, yes, yes, I can run in pink high heels! Official business: This post is […]

Run, Bike, and Swim? How to train for a Sprint Triathlon


When Sarah over at IronGirl called me to ask if I’d be interested in a sponsorship to their Portland, OR Sprint Triathlon in June, I laughed. My running coach, Robin, over at Every Mom to Iron Mom has been telling me it’s time for me to do a Sprint, but I keep whining about not […]

Marathon Training: how to run intervals at the track


Coach Robin taught me how to run intervals at the track yesterday. The idea is to push yourself a bit, but learn to run at a consistent pace over and over. So we ran a lap, then rested, then ran again, and tried to keep the pace the same. This is tricky to do when […]

Kick Boxing with Hilary Swank and Black Eyed Peas: My Boom Boom Pow Moment


I went to Robin’s kick boxing class again tonight. I taped up my bloody knuckles, put on some gloves, and hit the bag with some left hooks, right hooks, jabs and pivot kicks. And I learned some super duper fancy footwork, to boot. Okay, I used a Band Aid and they were just little scabs […]

How to be a Kickboxer: a Wimp’s Guide to Toughness Part 1


Get Fit. Burn fat. Get lean. Learn Self-Defense. These are the things Robin at Every Mom to Iron Mom promised me from my first Kickboxing class last night. I was expecting the fitness benefits, I was not expecting how much I’d enjoy the Self-Defense part. It feels good to land a punch on a real bag. […]

Swim Golf and Zen: How a Swim Coach Improved Me


My new trainer, IronMom Robin, told me to meet her at the pool the other day. The outside pool. So I whined because it was about 58 degrees, which seems too cold for hanging out at the pool. But then she chirped “oh, you’ll be warm in the water, don’t worry!” So of course I […]

Proud to Hit Like a Girl! Boxing with IronMom Robin


My new trainer Robin is an IronMom. Like, for real. She’s tough, and I wouldn’t want to meet her in a dark alley. But if I had to be in a dark alley, I’d want to have her with me, to beat up the bad guys. I’m scared to death of dark alleys, though, so […]
