Life’s short. Don’t stress over things that haven’t happened. Find joy in each moment. Forgive- especially yourself. Remember, you never run out of love. And always, always, buy those shoes you want. ๐Ÿฅฐ #glycerin17
Petite séance de fractionné nocturne. On commence tranquillement avec un échauffement de 15 min pour arriver sur place. Quelque tours de plan d’eau histoire de finir l’échauffement et la gomme enchaînement de 2 séries 5*30/30 avec 2 min de récupération entre chaque série. Ben moi je dis ça passe malgré quelques douleurs au dos avec la journée de taf sans ça je pense même que j’aurais rajouté une série ๐Ÿ˜ retour au calme 15 min avec mon poulain qui m’a rejoint ๐Ÿ˜‰ en résumé une bonne séance avant dimanche trail de Quéven 15km ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป‍โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿ”ฅ #training #garminrunning #bvsport #garmin #zamst #trail#trainingnocturne #running #runningmotivation #runthisbody #instarunfrance #instarun #newbalance #underarmour#reelmotivation
My previous post, from Tuesday, was after a job interview for a position I thought I’d really enjoy. Yesterday, another company contacted me about 2 possible positions, and I couldn’t believe how my luck was turning around. After 3 weeks of no leads, I went to bed last night wondering what the immediate future would hold - more interviews, an offer, nothing? Well, today dawned on a beautiful first day of spring, with the moon setting behind trees lit by the morning sun - a promising start for sure.  Shortly after breakfast, I got the call that my first choice of job, from Tuesday’s interview, was being offered to me! Woohoo!! Best part, it’s a 4-10 schedule, so every Fri/Sat/Sun off!  Four 10-hour days, with an hour commute each way, is not the best schedule for weekday runs, but the weekend run schedule will work for sure! Speaking of running, I managed to get in a short afternoon run after doing pre-hiring paperwork; the high I was on carried me through a poor run and I still felt great.  The flowers and creek waterfall even looked better today! Thanks to those who sent me well-wishes and good luck on Tuesday! Great day, and tonight @myadventures_now and I will celebrate for sure! ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚ ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ #newday #newcareer #letsgo #run #runner #runningman #runnerscommunity #runningchangeseverything #runnersofinsta #runnersofig #lovetorun #runtolive #runthisbody #skyabove #earthbelow #firewithin #brooksrunning #runhappy #adrenalinegts19 #shokzsquad #dontgiveup #neverquit #fightmywayback #discipline #dedication #determination
Finally got to take my new kicks for a spin today ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ These babies are going to see me through the London Marathon so it’s about time we got acquainted! • • • I went for the Adidas Pure Boost after going through a LOT of online reviews. They fit like a dream and I really could tell the difference with the padding, even just on the treadmill. I broke them in with a 55:10 10km run. Not my finest but it’s IN.THE.BANK. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Hallelujah, tomorrow is FRIDAY ๐Ÿ”ฅ • • • • • #adidas #adidaspureboost #pureboost #runningshoes #runnersofinstagram #runningmotivation #ironmantraining #ironman703 #ironman703training #londonmarathon #marathontraining #10km #thisgirlcanrun #runthisbody
Lesson learned.  Again.  I don’t know if I’m still sick or still recovering but after barely moving Tuesday and feeling mostly better yesterday I was excited to bust out a workout today.  But with a crappy night sleep and more tummy pains today that ended up being the worst idea ever.  For too many details, you can watch my story. Otherwise, suffice it to say that I got one of five half mile repeats done well, one done okay, the third got about half way, and then I gave up.  Now I’m sitting on a bench deciding if I should go to work or go to bed.  Today’s yoga pose was way too intense for my tummy.  So you get a selfie.  #running #run #runner #instarunners  #runthisbody #irunthisbody #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runmyworld  #halfmarathontraining #happyrunner #goals #progress #womensrunningcommunity #runnerscommunity #fitness  #workoutsnap #yesfit #virtualrunner #willrunforbling #run4prs #teamrun4prs @run4prs.coachbenjacobs

6 MILES of hills @ 8:50 pace! . . . First day of spring! Sunshine! Shorts! Having a job where I can go out for a run during lunch!! The grateful vibes are real again today. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› Happy Wednesday darlings!
Beautiful 7.5 miles starting with the full moon and running through sunrise thanks to a later clinic start this morning. Felt good and enjoyed every step and that's all I can ask for!

Easy runs all week. What else to say? Nothing, it’s been uneventful.
I spent about 36 hours straight in bed from Monday night to this morning. Feeling human again. Eating normally and taught yoga! Tomorrow I’ll attempt to run ๐Ÿ˜‰  #legsformiles @cyogalife  #yogapractice #yoga #yogachallenge #flexibility #running #run #runner #instarunners  #runthisbody #irunthisbody #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runmyworld  #halfmarathontraining #happyrunner #goals #progress #womensrunningcommunity #runnerscommunity #fitness  #workoutsnap #yesfit #virtualrunner #willrunforbling #run4prs #teamrun4prs
Feeling much much better today, thank you to everyone for the well wishes! ๐Ÿค— Appetite came back this afternoon, and I’ve had a couple small meals without any trouble. Felt well enough to get in a fun strength workout at the gym! . . . Did you know tomorrow is the first day of spring?? I’m super excited. Like, I might wake up early and go run somewhere beautiful to celebrate. Spring is the BEST. ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒธ
Thank you @nyrr for a great #unitednychalf and thank you to the random cop that took this perfect #nofilter pic
I feel like a proper runner ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ now I've got this watch ๐Ÿ˜‚ I was using my phone before no pausing at traffic lights, app getting stuck etc.  Lovely  run with #horshamjoggers and the best thing my knee was fine!! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ฏ I'm so happy I run with no pain.  Whatever I'm doing is obviously working, rolling my buttocks on a teniss ball (ouch), doing my strengthening exercises my physio gave me, still doing my spinning classes and lots of stretching.  I'm feeling so much more positive today after this run ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ Doing it for my son and @clicsargent Please ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š sponsor me if you can link in  bio ๐Ÿ˜˜
When you have a million things planned for Monday, and then you get food poisoning. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ I had a workout, shopping, meal prep, and a host of other things I wanted to get done yesterday, and instead I was sick until 2am. Feeling very weak and icky today... hoping I can get some food into my belly and get back on track! #runnernotrunning
Um yeah.  I didn’t want to lay down on the wet grass.  Also i felt like this would be more gentle.  And I ran four super slow “recovery” miles today.  They felt harder than Saturday.  One part soreness, one part poor sleep, one part too much wine means 3 parts rough run.  Wish I could say I learned my lesson but we know it will happen again sometime๐Ÿ˜‰  #legsformiles @cyogalife  #yogapractice #yoga #yogachallenge #flexibility #running #run #runner #instarunners  #runthisbody #irunthisbody #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runmyworld  #halfmarathontraining #happyrunner #goals #progress #womensrunningcommunity #runnerscommunity #fitness  #workoutsnap #yesfit #virtualrunner #willrunforbling #run4prs #teamrun4prs
Medal Monday ๐Ÿ… with a medal from a cheerful, yet spicy 30km local race. Sun, grueling front wind from time to time and some drops of rain here and there were the weather conditions yesterday, but nature has started to bloom. That was Almere Lenteloop (spring run in Dutch). As any local race, lots of known faces at the start. Thumbs up for all who joined! And on to the next! . . . #runnerslife #courir #correr  #run #beatyesterday #instarunners #run2day #loverunning #ikloophard #laufliebe #runningcommunity #igersholland #playformance #runnersworldnl #imoveme #imoveme #nodaytootough #hardlopenisleuk #runthisbody #runnerslife #courir #correr #run #beatyesterday #instarunners #run2day #loverunning #ikloophard #laufliebe #runningcommunity #igersholland #playformance #weekendvibes #almerelenteloop #almere #medal #medalmonday #asicsfrontrunnernl

Medal Monday!! Thank you Tobacco Road for making this an amazing race! I kept pretty quiet about running this because my training hasn’t been 100% lately. I’ve been very scared to push myself for fear of another injury. I went into this race with pretty low expectations. The goal was to just finish. It was an awesome race every step of the way. My legs felt strong and my fuel was perfect. I managed to pull off a 12 minute PR. My finish time was 2:12:34. Definitely the motivation I need to push forward and not be too scared of challenging my body. The body is more capable than the mind! #brooksrunning #garminconnect #tobaccoroadmarathon
It took me waaaaaaaay too long to get my butt outta bed this morning. I’m still not quite adjusted to daylight savings. But Week 3 Run 1 done โœ…. Again, running outside was way better. It was kinda freaky dark when I started but I know it won’t be like that for long. Good luck to everyone starting the #csespringchallenge today!
10 WEEKS FROM EDINBURGH. . . . One of the things I really love about running is how it creates Gratitude in me. The places I get to run through, the people I meet, even things like sunshine, being out in the woods, the food I enjoy afterwards, the way my body feels, and just the very fact that I’m RUNNING. I still get excited that I get to run 3 miles, never mind 26.2. I feel so grateful for so many things when I run. It reminds me that I’m very lucky, and very blessed, in so many ways. I simply have to choose to notice. ๐Ÿค—
The face you make when you realize there’s only 28 days until the Boston Marathon. • • #wut #sheeeeet ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‚
This giddy look captures my feeling about today’s #nychalfmarathon perfectly. It was my kind of weather in one of my favorite places. I got to see some of my favorite people and ran for an amazing charity. I ran over a minute faster than last year. While nowhere near a personal best time, it was a race where I was at my best. I ran with purpose, joy and so much #gratitude. I’m a lucky woman!  Official time: 1:42.17 (7:49/mile)  #runnyc #instarunners #alexandrasplayground #dogood #runthisbody #keepshowingup #janjicorps #rungum #runchat #livingasweatlife #happyplace #newyorknewyork
Happy St. Patrick’s Day all! No holiday race for me this year, but made sure to wear green on my run this morning. Even my #balega socks were ready for #stpaddysday. This was my third run in last 7 days, so it’s a good start on my journey back. Garmin says I’m highly improving my aerobic fitness, but that’s easy to make happen when doing something after a months of doing nothing ๐Ÿ˜‚. All in all, I’m happy to be making progress, and I earned my green beer for the day ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ #run #runner #runningman #runnerscommunity #runningchangeseverything #runnersofinsta #runnersofig #lovetorun #runtolive #runthisbody #skyabove #earthbelow #firewithin #brooksrunning #runhappy #adrenalinegts19 #shokzsquad #dontgiveup #neverquit #fightmywayback #discipline #dedication #determination
6 recovery miles โœŒ๐Ÿป . . . Weekend style: Bra? Only if it’s a sports bra. Makeup? Only if it’s sunscreen. Clothes? If it doesn’t stretch, it doesn’t happen. Hair? BUN THAT SNARLY MESS. Weekends are for running and resting. Fashion can wait till Monday. ๐Ÿ˜‚
Yesterday I ran a 19:26 5k in NJ and today I ran a 1:29.52 half in VA. Good weekend for sports.

I look tired because I am tired ๐Ÿ‘€ • • • • Another half marathon down and it felt like hell but landed me a PB.

14 MILES avg 9:02 pace ๐ŸŒž . . . WOOOOOOOO!! Okay guys, NOW it feels like we’re freaking training for a marathon. ๐Ÿ˜„ After a couple faster runs this week, my right shin was feeling a little sore, so I wanted to take this one slow. Add in hills and headwinds, and I’m still pretty proud of this pace. I ran by feel, not letting my heart rate get too high until the last mile, where I kicked it out @ 7:58. . . . Also... SUNSHINE!!! I can’t even describe how happy spring makes me. It’s literally like coming to life again. I’m not sure yet, but I’m really hoping I’ve got my first hints of tan on my pale ole legs, instead of just windburn. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒž
My lipstick ๐Ÿ’„ is matching my #clicsargent Brighton marathon ๐Ÿƒ vest ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ I'm still feeling positive although it's been a bit tough last 4 weeks my knee hurts everytime I run and the pain gets so bad that I have to stop. I'm not able to run pain free :( I have been to sports therapist and he said what I expected I've done too much too soon. I have never run before I signed up. I started at the end of September and my first run was nearly 5miles!! So I thought hey I might be natural to this running thing. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ˜‚ I started training realy hard in Jan this is when I thought let's do this and take this training seriously ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ’ช I'm told now to take it easy to slow down and no long runs, I'm doing strengthening exercises. OK so this week I've  done 3 runs and 2 spinning classes and I'm planning to try a longish run ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿคž tomorrow 10miles slow pace if I can and yes I've been told to do only 2 runs a week, but it's just too hard for me to take it easy ๐Ÿ˜‚ I know now that maratonam will be most probably not pain free for me and it will be toughest physical chalange I've done so far, but I'm determined to cross that finish line no matter what ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿƒ Doing it for my son and @clicsargent #younglivesversuscancer Please sponsor me if you can ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ link in a bio. It's less than one month left till the marathon ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ’ช
First outside run since last fall and IT. FELT. AMAZING. Waaaaaay better for my mental health to run outside. I am so glad that little by little it’s getting warmer and warmer outside ๐Ÿ˜. 2.5 miles โœ… #rebelrunner
Papa was with me today. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™ . Soooo I just ran my first ever 10k!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I came home with first place Female and fourth place overall with an automatic PR plus a 5k PR in the second half of the race! I am beyond happy with how today went. When my coach told me he wanted a 6:05 pace I was so scared because that pace, only a few months ago, was faster than my 5k pace!! I can’t thank my coach @boydmiler72 enough for believing in me as always and making me into the runner that I’ve always dreamt of being! ๐ŸŒŸ . . Also, a huge thanks to @peejay425 for pacing me and always motivating me to be stronger!! . . Guyssss! Did I really just do that?? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
When we run, we run with a fire in our souls. It's what this team, this life, this sport is all about.. . In the third picture I may or may not be yelling "fuck" as i crossed the finish line. I sprinted my hardest the last 100 yards and thought that I finished 3 seconds shy of a sub 30 run! Come to find out the course was a quarter mile short . WTF!?!? . We have fun and it was nice to get out there and compete. . Place:  273 of 358 (76.26%) Chip Time: 30:02.89 (2.74 miles. WTF?!?!)

Hertesting vandaag...het enige wat door mijn hoofd ging, was: stomme wind stopt er nu es mee. Een helft wind  mee..de andere helft op kop..niet te doen. Tegen het einde was mijn pijp echt wel uit. Mijn maximaal (400 m sprint), heb ik moeten staken...de wind had gewonnen (En mijn astma wou weer es van zich laten horen). Toch het gevoel dat er progressie was..ondanks die stomme wind.

Aloha Friday morning run/walk at Evans Towne Center Park. Cloudy AM, but spring is here for sure, as evidenced by my pics of blooming flowers and the pollen that collected on my #flipbelt in only 45 minutes.  Living in Augusta area in spring also means the Masters, and ETC Park is hosting The Zac Brown Band during Masters week - hmmm, tickets maybe ๐Ÿค”? As for my run, I did it by heart rate as I slowly work my way back. It’s been a week of healthy eating and increases exercise, so I hope this is truly the true turning point and beginning of my way back. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ #run #runner #runningman #runnerscommunity #runningchangeseverything #lovetorun #runtolive #runthisbody #skyabove #earthbelow #firewithin #brooksrunning #runhappy #adrenalinegts19 #shokzsquad #dontgiveup #neverquit #fightmywayback #discipline #dedication #determination #neverquit #dontgiveup #springishere #evansga

I was one of those people who was terrified of pregnancy. THE UNKNOWN. What would my body feel like? What would I have to adjust? Will I be able to run and work out? Will I be exhausted all the time? How will I survive for 9 months without sushi? How in hell will I squeeze that thing out of my body????? ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ‍โ™€๏ธ . While I was so selfishly worried about all the changes I'd undergo...I didn't spend any time thinking about how cool growing a human actually is. Earlier this week, I proudly donned a bare belly while running in Florida - something I never thought I'd EVER have the balls to do. On my run, I passed many pedestrians. Most of them smiled at me...some looked at me disapprovingly. But as my run went on, I felt an overwhelming sense of pride for what my body is able to do. I knew pregnancy would make me feel a lot of things...I never thought one of those things would be feeling like a badass. . As more time passes, I'm fearing the unknown of pregnancy less and less. At the beginning of this journey, I underestimated how strong I really am. I think this self-realization is something a lot of us struggle with, whether you're pregnant, or training for a marathon. So next time you forget that you're a badass, just give yourself that reminder that you've got this; you're way stronger than you think.
7.6 MILES @ 8:45 pace!! . . . I feel really lucky to be living as close to the city as I do these days. A quick trip takes me to some of the most iconic running spots in the country, and there are so many other runners in Boston, you can just feed off the energy of everyone around you. A warm-ish run along the Charles last night left me feeling very blessed!! #timeflieswhenyourehavingfun
A lot of times when I do these yoga poses I’m comparing myself to a different person.  I mean, it was me, three years ago, but that’s not my physical body anymore.  What’s it matter if I used to be able to lay flat here if I clearly don’t work on that skill anymore? If I told that girl determined to get a straight leg in dancers pose that in three years she would rarely work on flexibility and instead would be super excited for her third half marathon, well, she would have been convinced you’d have her confused with someone else.  So three super easy run/walk miles, some light stretching (because I really overdid it with the hammies in yoga yesterday!) and time to eat all the carbs before Saturday!  #legsformiles @cyogalife  #yogapractice #yoga #yogachallenge #flexibility #running #run #runner #instarunners  #runthisbody #irunthisbody #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runmyworld  #halfmarathontraining #happyrunner #goals #progress #womensrunningcommunity #runnerscommunity #fitness  #workoutsnap #yesfit #virtualrunner #willrunforbling #run4prs #teamrun4prs

NEW 5K PR- 22:55!!!! . . . What do you do when you have a track workout planned for lunch, then someone throws a meeting on your calendar, cutting your anticipated free time in half? You decide to beat your 5k time from last summer! I’m not going to be running a lot of races this year, so I’ve decided not to wait for chip timing to get excited about PRs. As long as I’ve measured it in a reliable way, and I’m not pausing my watch, I’m gonna count it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž The best part about this run was... I could have gone -even faster- ๐Ÿคฉ . . . 1.5 mile warmup  3.1 @ 7:30-6:30ish pace 1 mile cooldown
Little run out tonight and I even took on a hill or two. Rest day tomorrow after 4 days in a row. Have walked/ran 80 miles in the last week ๐Ÿ˜‚ #running #run #rungappy #brooksrunning #runningmama #runningmotivation #couchto5k #10k #halfmarathontraining #getupandmove #runthisbody #weightloss #run #instarun #runningcommunity
Sunshine is my soulmate โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ–ค . . Seriously though, I get to run in this?? #blessed #buhbyelayers #bringmemorewarmth #sunydaze
What a difference a year makes. On left, March 9, 2018; 188 lbs, ran 4 miles at 9:30 pace that day.  Today, March 12, 2019; 223 lbs, struggled to run/walk just over 2 miles at a 13 min pace. What happened? A lot. In the end, I only have myself to blame. While I’ve lost all feeling in most of my left hand, and the pain in every other running step reminds me of disc issues and bone spurs in my neck, I have to stop making excuses and start making progress. I may be staring at cervical spine surgery soon, and I’m now on blood pressure medication, but my only restriction is me right now.  I can’t blame my weight and lack of fitness on the issues in my neck. I got stressed, I got lazy, life kicked me and I didn’t kick back, but laid there and ate too damn much.  So now I have to live with the consequences and get my ass back to work.  As I find the neck and head positions which cause the most pain, and those which don’t cause any, I will start working my way back in the gym and on the road in hopes I can improve before potential surgery lays me up for a bit.

There is a connection I am missing when I try to straighten my legs.  I’m going to say my pants are slippery but clearly I’m just not twisted deep enough to stay above my elbow ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ swipe to see some great fails.  I forgot the shoes I wanted to wear on the track today (the bus was pulling away as I pulled up so I panicked ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ) so I did two on the tready and called it.  I’ll run the other two tomorrow.  It’s a light week gearing up for half marathon #3! #legsformiles @cyogalife  #yogapractice #yoga #yogachallenge #flexibility #running #run #runner #instarunners  #runthisbody #irunthisbody #runnersworld #runnerslife #runhappy #runmyworld  #halfmarathontraining #happyrunner #goals #progress #womensrunningcommunity #runnerscommunity #fitness  #workoutsnap #yesfit #virtualrunner #willrunforbling #run4prs #teamrun4prs @run4prs.coachbenjacobs
It’s amazing how busy we can get. I haven’t posted in a few day because sometimes you just forget. Friday was my first attempt at a stroller run...props to all you moms and dads out there that run with a stroller. I have to admit it was fun she kept me laughing the whole time. I’m definitely not used to pushing all the extra weight while running. That just means we’ll have to run more together. Sunday was a wet run. I waited until the rain stopped. At least I thought it stopped. Oh well. I got wet. It made for an uncomfortable 5 miles. It can only get better!! #garminconnect #brooksrunning #strollerrunning
Woke up 5am to do this run thing ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸƒAs soon as I started running my knee started aching and got progressively worse until I couldn't bare the pain I had to stop and running through pain is not a good idea anyway.  I'm so frustrated!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข One week of rest hasn't helped so I booked myself sports therapist today hopefully he can help me ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ I've got half marathon in 2 weeks and Brighton in less than 5 weeks ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž this therapist will help me.  On a positive note my new trainers felt good ๐Ÿ‘ apparently my old ones were too small and that's why my toenails are black ๐Ÿ˜‚
I gave up my usual rest day (and Pilates class) to support the run club Couch 2 5K graduate run. Happy to have clocked my mileage over to 200 for the year and 30 for the last 7 days. 18 miles with dog walking banked for the day. #run #running #c25k #runningmotivation #brooksrunning #couchto5k #halfmarathontraining #runningmama #runhappy #runthisbody #instarunner #runningcommunity #runit #runforhealth
Today I got the clear to do 4 minutes running and 1 minute walking for 20 minutes and it was pain free. Also, all the swelling in my face is almost gone thanks to a rotation of antihistamines + sinus medicine! What a great start to the week.
Week 2 Run 1 done โœ…! My boss told me to take a mental health day and I’m glad that I’m working on making exercise part of my mental health. We also had the #notyouraverage5k call today and I was able to ask our coach Jill about endurance. I’m finding that once I hit the 20 minute mark I get bored and want to quit. She suggested lowering my Intervals to help increase endurance. I also happen to think that running outside with help with boredom and I am looking forward to running outside again. I think I’ll take my long runs on the old trail and my workouts before work at the park near my house. #runyourbestlife
Montgomery Half Marathon ๐Ÿ”น๏ธState #18 ๐Ÿ”น๏ธ Half #27 ๐Ÿ”น๏ธ I really enjoyed the course at this race in all its hilly glory and was proud of my performance. I haven't been running long distances for several months as I've been healing from my Achilles injury. My Achilles hurt out on the course but my cardio is still in pretty good shape. The Achilles pain returned to zero as soon as I finished which according to my physical therapist means that the activity was an acceptable load. A half was an acceptable load, how exciting is that?! . . #50stateshalfmarathon #50stateshalfmarathonclub #montgomeryhalf #montgomeryhalfmarathon #halfmarathonclub #halfmarathon #run50states #instarunners #runalabama #mms #ihavearunnersbody #runthisbody #strongisthenewskinny #womensrunningcommunity #womensrunning #senitaathletics #senitairl #run4prs #runnersofig #xtremerunnerslife #keepittight #runlikeagirl #likeagirl
So I was excited this morning to try out my new trainers after not running for 1 week, but life has other plans.  Before I signed up for the marathon I knew that I will face challenges not only in terms of training but actually fitting it all in to my crazy busy life! My daughter has ongoing hronic bladder and bowel problems since birth and needs constant care. Her condition is complex and doctors still not been able to find a correct treatment for her. She has got 2 surgeries coming up one of them just days before my marathon which does worry me a bit. Like today she's woken up with lots of pain constant diarrhoea and vomiting bile it's not sickness bug it's just part of her condition and this happens regularly. She's still in nappies (she's nearly 5)and I have to see her suffer and feel helpless a lot of the time. So she misses school frequently and I'm not able to work or train on these days. My eldest son is a goalkeeper and trains a lot and just signed up for a second team so I'm forever driving him to and from training, games and waiting in the car it takes up large amount of my time. And there is also Christian who I'm convinced due to the treatment he had for Leukaemia is left with psychological issues like OCD, sleeping and eating disorders, and other things list too long to mention and he also requires a lot of my attention. And then there is only one me :) and I'm trying very hard to fit everything in and I shall say successfully most of the time I'm coping and doing a good job I hope I am anyway.  I can't say it's easy it's hard it's non stop no brakes for me no time out, except when I'm running that's why this running has been such a good thing for me it's the way to escape and just be in that moment with myself and my thoughts.  So yes training for this marathon is a massive challenge , but I'm not going to stress myself out I can only do what I can do in my current situation and yes probably I won't be able to fit in as much training  as I would
Train hard, hydrate harder. ๐Ÿป • • • #26.2brew #bostonbrew #marathonbrewingco
12 MILES @ 8:48 avg . . . I’m getting real sick of pics of my dumb face in the gym mirror, so here a pic of my dumb face at the Angry Unicorn Half in RI last year. ๐Ÿ™ƒ I’m not doing a lot of races this year, really just because of financial reasons, but I miss it. . . . It’s pretty sweet to be able to run 12 miles at that pace and not even feel like I’m trying real hard. Hurrah, body!
Says it’s -26c with windchill but it still felt damn near tropical compared to what we’ve had, a nice 12k recovery run in the sun about 15 hours after I finished a 20 mile long run. I’ll take a frosty face over the treadmill any day!! I didn’t take my 4 legged running partner with me but she was waiting for me with the puppy dog eyes..๐Ÿถ#letsdothis #sundayrunday #runinthesun #backoutdoors #frostyface #irunlikeagirl #runthisbody #runningmotivation #runrestrepeat #recoverymiles #runnersofinstagram #selfieoritdidnthappen #runselfie
I had to contend with snow, rain, wind, flooded roads for my 10k run today. Didn’t go further as my mileage crept up a this week, so trying to reduce injury risk. Legs felt so heavy when I got to the 1 mile mark. Shins felt tight. As I got to about 2.75 miles I felt my legs ease off and wake up, so I decided to try and turn it into a negative split run from miles 2-6. I learned today that I am less precious about running through floods after the first couple of times of my feet getting a soaking! Roast is in the oven and I’m off for a bath to warm up! Happy Sunday all. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ #running #runhappy #runthisbody #halfmarathontraining #runningmotivation #couchto5k #runit #runningcommunity #10k #brooksrunning #womenwhorun #runningmama
Finally got the clear to do some running today. I did walk 3 run 3 three times for a total of 15 minutes. It felt so good to be back on my feet running again even if it was only for 1.74km.
Since I am not allowed to run right now, I had Greg set up my bike trainer so I could at least be somewhat active as I recover from plantar fasciitis.  My legs + foot felt great riding but my butt not so much haha. Hopefully it gets better over the next few days.
