I RAN FOR 30 MIN THIS MORNING!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ And my hip is the best itโ€™s ever felt!!! Zero pain!!! On cloud 9 right now โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธWent to ART as well and my chiropractor was happy with my progress! Iโ€™m actually afraid to be happy about this because I donโ€™t want to jinx it ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆBut if Iโ€™m feeling this good after my run, it can only mean itโ€™s gonna get better! Itโ€™s a good Monday โ˜บ๏ธ Thank you all for checking in on me last week! Itโ€™s so appreciated! #runjillrun #jillsmarathonjourney #marathontraining

Rain, rain, go away โ˜”๏ธ๐ŸŽถ 6 easy miles this morning with 4 min run, 1 min walk. Body is feeling better every day but itโ€™ll be another week of taking it easy. Itโ€™s less than ideal and I get frustrated at times, but I know this is a much better route than pushing my body over the top and hurting myself even more. Iโ€™m just thankful that I can still run! Hope you all had a great Monday โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ#runjillrun #thisismarathontraining

Hey guys! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸปI promise Iโ€™m still here!โ˜บ๏ธ This week was extremely stressful, but Iโ€™m happy to say that I passed my Nurse Practitioner boards yesterday and Iโ€™m now officially Jillian Carp MSN, CRNP!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ Itโ€™s been such a crazy journey and itโ€™s only getting started ๐Ÿ˜ณ

That being said, this week is another cut back week. I had some pretty bad hip flexor pain after my run Saturday so I took Monday and Tuesday off to only swim. I ran Wednesday and today! Iโ€™m feeling SO much better, but with all the stress, my body is exhausted. I was supposed to do 4 tempo miles today but ended up only 2. Iโ€™m completely ok with that โ˜บ๏ธthroughout this training cycle Iโ€™ve learned that listening to my body is so much more important than over doing it. Iโ€™m just thankful that I can run!!! I may not be fast, but I WILL cross that marathon finish line in November! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

I am so, so, SO, proud of this race! Did I PR? Nope, and that's OK! It was probably one of the hardest half marathons I've ever ran due to the atrocious heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅAt mile 4-5 I knew I couldn't go 100% and so I played it smart! I crossed the finish line feeling happy and with a smile on my face and that's all that matters โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Thank you all for your wonderful support! It does not go unnoticed!! #runjillrun #ocnjhalfmarathon #marathontraining

The humidity decided to come back and play ๐Ÿ˜ฉ hopefully it doesn't hang around long! But good news, I'm halfway through training! ๐Ÿ˜ฑFinished a 40 mile week and I feel great! #runjillrun #marathontraining

Just some easy miles this morning! Nothing crazy โ˜บ๏ธ Went to my chiropractor too for some ART. My left calf and the arch on my foot have been super tight. Seriously, they work magic and make me feel SO much better! If you haven't been to one before, I 100% recommend it. Happy Friyay! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

It's amazing how doing the past two speed work outs on the road has made all the difference on the track! Flat and no hills=so much faster! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I honestly saw that first mile and just decided to go with it! It's funny how I get so nervous before these kinds of runs and then end up crushing it ๐Ÿ˜‚ I felt tired towards the end but I did it, kept it consistent, and felt pretty comfortable! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Happy tempo day!!! #runjillrun #jillsmarathonjourney

No shame in pace!! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธalways keeping those easy days easy so I can take my hard days hard! Tomorrow I have some HMP miles tomorrow and I want to make sure my legs are shaken out and recovered! Hope you all had a great Wednesday โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
#runjillrun

During Monday's speed work I would ask myself "how hard will be too hard?", "when will pain be too much pain?", "how hard am I willing to push myself?" I don't think I have answers to any of those questions because there will always be new challenges, new kinds of hard, and new kinds of pain. I only keep moving forward hoping that good changes will come. I never do regret a run where I push through the pain and push through the places in my brain that I didn't think I could get through. It's all totally worth it in the end ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

Why is doing track work outs on the road so hard? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Due to the holiday, I knew the track would be closed, so I took my run on the road! I didn't hit all the paces I should have, but I gave it all I got and that's what matters โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
