You know those rainy, miserable days you want to do just about anything besides go to the gym? Those are the days I push myself hardest and usually end up most satisfied after a workout. And now that I started Beach Body on demand, I have tons and tons of workouts at my fingertips... and I can do them from the comfort of my own home if I want to! 👏🏼☺️ Finding a routine and a workout regimen that works for YOU is what's most important.
Attempted a 3 mile run but my legs were just not having it so it turned into a run/walk interval style. A year ago I would have pushed myself to run but now I'm listening to this body of mine. My goal is to not push myself too hard when it comes to training. There is pushing yourself and there is pushing yourself too far. Two different things when it comes to training. I got a great workout without injuring myself and that's all that matters💪🏼 #girlswhorun#trailrun#lakeminnetonka
Tuesday, may your oil game always be stronger than your head game. Loving these little gems for today! I have been battling the tail end of some upper respiratory thing for a while, as in I feel great and have no temp and am perfectly fine....aside from the weird head pressure. I am sure I have crackles in my forehead. Been trying oils of course, cause they're my jam. And just now, today, I found something that helps! Holla!!! Thank goodness!!!!! Respiratory relief in 3 little bottles!!! #oilgame#yayoils#noilljustsmellliketeatree#oilcrushtuesday
8 pre-work miles this AM before a crazy day at work. I'm finally on the bus home. 👍🏼
I don't usually share my "easy" run paces but after some feedback a few weeks go, I wanted to be transparent.
This is what my recovery or easy days usually look like.
When my marathon pace was 7:30-7:40, my easy runs were 7:40-7:50. Now that my marathon pace is low/sub-7🤞🏼, my easy runs are over 8.
It's not a coincidence. Slowing down my easy days means I'm ready to fly on the hard ones. I've become smarter about my training and it's resulted in stronger racing.
Been running distance to try and prepare for the defenders challenge, I hate running more than anything, but I'm loving the results I've been getting, so that's just motivation to keep going💪🏼 it also takes place in Guam so that's even more motivation🌴☀️
I'm still questioning my decision to post this, but here it goes... After college I found myself gradually getting too comfortable. Not taking my health too seriously and gradually gaining almost 45 pounds over 4 years. Work was too stressful, or I was too tired. The excuses got easier and the choices got worse. I had to make a change.
It's been almost 9 months into my fitness journey and I have lost over 25 pounds. For most people that is slow progression. But I wanted to do it in a way to work it into my life. I didn't want to lock myself away or miss out on opportunities by putting my life on hold. I lost weight while still living, and enjoying my life. Now, I can say that I'm happier and healthier than I've been in years! Most people don't know the changes I've made and the dedication I've had. And that's okay. It wasn't easy, and definitely not overnight but it's so worth it and I'm glad I gave myself a second chance. I'm still a work in progress and have a way to go but healthy is way better than skinny any day! ✌#TransformationTuesday#girlswhoworkout#girlswhorun#fitness#fattofit#thickthighssavelives#runnergirls#runnersofinstagram
Got in 5 miles this morning, four with my pup and one solo. I decided to try and run mile 5 as fast as I could because I was curious how fast I could go 🤔 well, 7:03 is what I came up with! I wonder if I did my fast mile first if I could have gotten under 7? Next time I'll try that. Haven't been on insta as much because on Sunday I found out I get to see my husband this week!! So, I'm currently back in Columbus, staying in a hotel 😬 aaaand I get to see my hubby TOMORROW!! Just for a few hours but I don't even care!
Yeah I like this angle 🤳🏻🙊 Great booty sesh. My glutes were burning again. I was looking in the mirror yesterday and saw a little progress back there. So I was inspired to kill my workout tonight #workoutnumber3
Junho de 2012, minha primeira corrida de rua e meia-maratona 🏃🏼♀️🏅
Corri sem garmim - nem sequer tinha um - usei um relógio de ponteiro ⏱ apenas para saber quanto tempo iria levar mais ou menos. Mas queria mesmo era completar afinal meu recorde até então eram 18km 👧🏼
Gostava de fazer provas essa época, sabe porque? Não era essa vaidade que vejo hoje em dia, ou talvez já fosse e eu quem não percebia. Vaidade em todos os sentidos, de um querer ser melhor que o outro, de querer aparecer mais que o outro, de estar impecável, e etc. 😐
Minha relação com a corrida sempre foi de tanto amor, gratidão e respeito! Lembro até hoje da largada e da chegada dessa prova 🙏🏻 foram treinos tão difíceis, foi nessa época que estava começando a me curar da anorexia e anemia, para ter força para treinar 👊🏼
E depois de uns anos correndo essa relação foi mudando, comecei a querer ser igual aos outros 🤦🏼♀️ a querer correr rápido demais sempre, a querer fazer tal tempo, a querer estar sempre bem. Quis tanto que comecei a ter crises de ansiedade durante os meus treinos, e não rendia 😞
Até que desde o final do ano passado me aceitei, aceitei quem eu sou, aceitei minha relação com a corrida e passei a honrar e respeitar o meu corpo! 🙌🏻
Hoje contei no Stories o porque não faço provas de corrida hoje, e pode ser que um dia mude, embora acho difícil. Mas gostaria de dizer isso aqui para vocês, para que vocês saibam que está TUDO BEM não ser igual aos demais, e que é muito, muito preciso se conhecer e se respeitar!
Desejo que vocês, corredores, sejam sempre fiéis a si. Seja no espírito de competição ou de paz que a corrida trás. Seja você, mas seja feliz e trate bem o seu corpo ❤
Taking advantage of being at my parent's this week by going out for another run, this one completely intentional 😜
Call me crazy but it's pretty hilly in the town where my mum and dad live and I absolutely love it for running as it makes it so much more interesting and challenging.
I know running is not 'technically' liss but that's what I'm classing it as @pressupsandprosecco 😘 How's everyone else lissing at the moment?
Oh and I got back and realised I'd not really eaten much today so refuelled with several snacks, including sliced banana with Greek yoghurt, honey and pb - sometimes the simple stuff is the best 👌
