THANK YOU!
A little over a year ago I turned up at an event, stomach in knots, so worried I wouldn't fit in or didn't belong. It reignited my love of running and laid the foundation for some really strong friendships. After hearing me blabber on about @takethebridge for 11 months, the fearless @argnyc followed in my footsteps, pushing out of her comfort zone and toeing the line at her first unsanctioned event. The support and I love I felt from everyone, both for the race and for my birthday is more than I ever expected and fills my heart with so much joy. I promise to thank each one of you personally for making Friday so incredibly special and I commit to pay it forward so others can feel at least a fraction of the way you made me feel because those vibes....they were epic!

Also thank you to @barcanshoot & @darcybud for trusting me with their baby!

Sunset Speed...sorta like Happy Hour but minus the douchie frat boys & watered down margaritas.
Cheers to the #LuluRunCru for bringing the speed and leaving everything on the track. ..

DAY 67 - STRENGTHEN YOUR STRIDE aka CROSS TRAINING
Okay yes, today's photo is totally self indulgent. It's from this past weekend and I just love it. I love it because it's is a gorgeous setting with a bunch of people who are close to me having a great time. So why should it matter to you? Well, because it's also a photo of #RunnersNotRunning! All of these folks are training seriously for 13.1, 26.2, and (gulp) 100 miler! But even with that in mind, they all moved their training around to spend a day rafting. Let's be real, training isn't a ball of laughs most days and you can't just blow it off when you're not in the mood. That said, you shouldn't be a slave to the plan! The plan provided by Lululemon and even the advice I give is just that: advice! You should own your training. It's okay to push your long run to Sunday or move it up to Friday.
So tomorrow calls for 5x exertion phase of the strengthen your stride plan. If that appeals to you, rock on! If you'd rather go to cross fit or ride your bike or swim or even raft, that's a-okay too! ..

DAY 74 - STRENGTHEN YOUR STRIDE 5x exertion
As our mileage increases once again this week, it's more important than ever to make sure we are "PreHabbing" any injuries. Let's jump back to this program today so we can get a check on any imbalances or tight areas. It's not uncommon for one side to be a little stronger than the other but you can minimize that by adding an extra rep on the weak side. β€’ OPENING (4-5 mins)
β€’ ACTIVATION (2mins)
β€’ EXERTION (6mins) - repeat 5x (total 30 mins)
β€’ RE-OPENING (6mins)

Total time = 45ish minutes.

DAY 73 - HILL INTERVALS
This is not one to attempt on the treadmill. Get out there and find something that resembles a hill!
10 minutes warm up
3 minutes strides
60 second uphill at string effort
Easy jog back to the start
(Do this a total of 5 times)
10 minute cool down
Total time: 38ish minutes. ..

DAY 72 - YOGA!

We've reach the point in our training where the focus starts shifting from building strength to fine tuning routine and staying healthy/uninjured. With only 3 weeks to go, now is NOT the time to check out aerial yoga to hop onto a Pilates reformer for the first time ever. If you've made it through 71 days without issue, keep doing what you're doing. If you have a nagging pain or soreness, skip today's workout and visit the Physical Therapist instead. We are entering prime injury zone for runners but in most cases, its avoidable. Be smart, take care of yourself, stay healthy and kick ass! ..

DAY 71 - 40 Minute Easy Run

Every run has a purpose. As we ramp up for another big long run, today's easy run is about "time on your feet". While 40 minutes at easy pace may not seem like that big of a deal, when you combine it with the rest of this week's workout, we're in for a pretty intense week of running. Easy run days are a great opportunity to explore a new route or meet for a group run. ..

DAY 70 - 35 Minute RECOVERY RUN + YOGA
So how are you feeling after our longest run to date? New high score!! Today we are going to get the blood pumping but take it easy. Those 35 minutes should be much slower than your long run pace (and much much slower than race pace). In the spirit of the #ThiIsYoga campaign, think outside the mat on your practice today. You know the purpose of the yoga in your training, how can you achieve that without stepping foot on a yoga mat? Maybe nature is your yoga...tell us about it in the comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️ .

DAY 69 - LONG RUN aka Race Day Rehearsal
πŸ₯“πŸ₯πŸŒπŸ₯žπŸπŸ³πŸŠ
If you're anything like me, you're probably reading this from the comfort of your bed, maybe sipping some coffee, pondering what sounds good for breakfast. Or maybe you're planning to skip breakfast for now and wait until after the run. Either way...WRONG! Today is race day rehearsal which means we should already have a plan for what we will eat exactly 4 Saturdays from today (eeeeeek!). Most of you will be in a hotel so I hate to break it to you but it's unlikely you'll have a toaster in your room. Peanut butter on a toasted English muffin is my pre-race fave so what is plan B? Instant oatmeal is a good option since hot water and a mug are easily obtained. I'll probably pick up a few bananas as well. Clif Bars are another one of my favorites because they are filling but don't feel like a brick in my stomach. If you're planning to skip breakfast prior to the race let me just warn you against that now. With a 7am start time, you need to be down near the convention center around 6am to check your bag, do some stretches, use the porto, and get to your corral. That means alarms are set for around 5am which means you are almost 2 hours into your day before you even take your first step of the race. You don't have to eat a lot but trust me, you will do better if you put something in your tummy before you toe the line. ..

DAY 68 - REST DAY aka Long Run Eve

I'm sure I sound like a broken record at this point but I really can't stress this enough: your decisions today WILL impact your run tomorrow. You wouldn't not charge your phone or your watch and expect it to run well would you? Why do we think we can drain our batteries then perform difficult feats? Will power is definitely a factor but save that for race day. In the meantime, take it easy today, hydrate, eat right, pick out a cute outfit and kick your feet up. We've got 18km tomorrow!

DAY 66 - HILL INTERVALS
Hill Intervals are a great training technique, even if your planning to race on a very flat course (SeaWheeze is fairly flat but trust me, you'll easily recognize the hills when you see them, there's actually a short but steep one in the first mile). Hill intervals help to build strength much in the same way increasing your weights in the gym does, by increasing the resistance. Today's intervals are fairly short so your goal should be to keep your form perfect the entire time. Keep your head up and your chest (sternum) pointed at the top of the hill. This helps to keep your hips under your torso and also makes breathing easier. Keep your elbows close to your rib cage swinging only forward & backward like a Barbie arm.
Run up then immediately turn around to jog back down (2 minutes). You might not fully catch your breath before it's time to start again-that's okay.
.
β€’10 minutes Warm Up.
β€’2 minutes Striders (to make sure hips are warm).
β€’60 Second uphill sprint/2 minute downhill jog ***Repeat 3 times***
β€’10 minute cool down.

Total time: 34 Minutes.

DAY 65 - YOGA
As our mileage increases, it become more important to stretch and strengthen, not just to stay limber but because as runners, we are really good at muting little messages our body sends us. We push through discomfort and/or pain, even turning up the music as a diversion tactic. For the most part this is good. Our bodies and minds can play tricks on us and most of the time, those signals, tempting us to stop, are not signs of actual pain or injury. Now keeping that in mind, taking time out to do some yoga is a way to check in and actually listen to our bodies. Even a quick 30 minute practice is a great way to discover imbalances and tight spots that would otherwise go ignored.

DAY 64 - 40 Minute Easy Run
2 months ago did you think that a 40 minute "easy run" would seem easy? I hope you're seeing the progress you're making because it's been really cool watching you!
Keep it conversational on today's run. Run with a buddy if possible because talking on the run is a good way to ensure you don't push too hard. Today's the day to explore a new route or park, take in the view, stop for a selfie. It's days like today that keep running fun! ..

DAY 63 - 35 Minute Recovery Run + Yoga.
Congratulations on your long run! Today we need to resist the urge to rest and instead get out there for an easy run or even a brisk walk. Recovery Days are crucial to setting you up for future training.
Your choices today will impact the outcome of the next few days of training. In addition to physical activity, recovery nutrition also plays a key role in how quickly you can bounce back from a taxing workout. Supplements, chocolate milk, cold-pressed juice, even Red Bull are used/thought to help aid recovery. What's your favorite recovery drink?

DAY 62 - LONG RUN 16km (10 miles)
Its Race Day Rehearsal and today is a 10 miler. That means you need to practice your βœ”οΈoutfit βœ”οΈnutrition (both pre-run & mid-run) βœ”οΈhydration βœ”οΈchafe prevention
This run should NOT be race pace...you should go at least 30-60 seconds per mile slower than your race pace. (Save that speed for the big day).

DAY 61 - REST DAY! +a shameless plug

Today is Long Run Eve and if you don't know what that means by now, we're in trouble πŸ˜€
So while you're resting and hydrating and prepping, I'd encourage you to head on over to @TakeTheBridge to watch some really fast folks run over the Manhattan Bridge and get views like the photo above. It's an unsanctioned bridge which means they fly under the radar and simply race the streets and bridges of the city.
I had the pleasure of doing three of these races last summer and they were both amazing and terrifying. At just 2.5 miles, it's an all out sprint that starts with a 1km incline. It's raw and gritty and so much fun. So tune in and tune out...ladies race starts at 8:30pm eastern. ..
