Seven Sprints and Off to the Races

I don’t normally go to Orangetheory on travel days; I normally try to go every Tuesday and Thursday. But I had missed a class a few weeks ago, so I had one extra to make up before the end of the billing cycle. I didn’t know when I was going to squeeze that in, but then I heard from several people that today’s class was a blast. I’m flying in the evening today so I could be on a few {Read More}

Orangetheory Peak Performance Week: 24 Minute Run for Distance

This week is Peak Performance Week (PPW) at Orangetheory Fitness. Basically, twice a year, Orangetheory does a specific series of benchmark workouts for a week.

Orangetheory Workout: 22.5 Minute Endurance Run

I am flying high after an awesome Orangetheory class yesterday!

I was totally dragging, but decided that I might as well drag myself to a lunchtime Orangetheory class. And I’m so glad I did! Yesterday’s class was really fun. It was endurance day, and for once, {Read More}

Pondering the Bolder Boulder

I feel like I’ve really been slacking on workouts lately. First there was the week of vacation, where I didn’t have access to any kind of gym. That’s obviously no excuse and I could have done some bodyweight workouts on my own… but I didn’t. I thought I’d get back on track the next week, but that was when I got really sick, and even navigating from one room to the next was problematic. No way could I exercise! Last {Read More}

New Project: I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here

One of the best parts about consulting is how we move around from project to project, applying experience in one industry/situation to another. One month I’m working on a business case for a new product in the tech industry, the next, I’m writing change management communications for a pharmaceutical client. I’m always learning something new, and there’s definitely never any opportunity to get bored or complacent! That’s why I came back to consulting after a brief stint working “in industry” (as we {Read More}
