For you to succeed, you have to put in the work. Period. I have some big fall plans...and so it's time to get to work!
I woke up at 5 today to run before it warmed up but both boys got up before I left and really wanted me to stay and play with them...As a working mom, there are plenty of mornings during the week when I have to say no b/c of time constraints so I try really hard not to say "no" or "I can't" when i have a choice. Plus I never want them to feel like they have to compete with running for my time and attention.
So today, the run got reprioritized until later (we went out to breakfast and then food shopping). Yes it was hotter and more humid and tougher. But my heart was happy and I felt fulfilled. 💗
Couple of sets were slightly off what @itsamarython prescribed but given 80 degrees + humidity, I will gladly consider this a win 👌🏼
2 up (7:41, 7:32)
8 min @ 6:24 (goal: 6:25)
6 min @ 6:26 (goal: 6:25)
4 min @ 6:18 (goal: 6:15)
2 min @ 6:05 (goal: 6:10)
1 min @ 5:45 (goal: 5:54)
(All had 2:00 jog recovery)
2.7 down (7:52, 7:44, 7:35)
9 total miles: 7:20 average ✌🏼
Finished the week with 46 miles - and zero pain. Excited to turn the notch up a bit this week!

Basic rule of thumb... But who all out there has learned this the hard way? 😅🏃

Hallo ihr lieben ☺️
Ich hoffe ihr geniest gerade alle den Sonntag in vollen Zügen 💁🏼 wir haben uns jetzt auf den Weg nach Hause gemacht,damit ich mich gleich direkt ins Bett legen kann,um endlich fit zu werden. Die Hochzeit am Freitag und gestern der @worldfitnessday haben nämlich ihr Übriges getan,so dass ich jetzt wieder komplett krank bin 🙄 somit gab es nicht keinen #sundayrunday mit der @werunfrankfurt Crew, worauf ich mich seit Wochen gefreut hatte 😩 aber es hilft ja alles nichts,Gesundheit geht vor und deshalb gibt's hier momentan auch nicht so viel sportliches zu erzählen 🤷🏼‍♀️ aber sobald ich wieder fit bin gibt's von meiner Seite aus wieder eine Menge Motivation und Inspiration 💪🏼🙋🏼 ich hoffe ihr habt Verständnis dafür 🤓

What do you do after a 5 hour road trip?🚙 Run 20 miles of course😜 Actually, idk if I would recommend it! After sitting in the car for the first half of the day, my legs felt like jello, like I was a baby deer learning to walk😂 But I pushed through, held my pace (goal pace for today's run was 9:30), and got it DONE, so I'm proud! 20 miles stronger!👊🏼💙💛🦄

I've truly found my way to reach a high level of well being.. it's about doing things that I love and that gives me energy. One of those things is to do morning runs followed by a dip in the ocean. This was something I started doing last summer and it really gave me energy and a powerful feeling that lasted throughout the hole day. It still has the same effect, if not even more! 😀🙏🏃‍♀️💦 #wellbeing #loverunning #morningruns

Reaching levels of sweaty today that I didn't even know were possible 🏃🏻‍♀️💦 Listened to my body and stuck to only 5 miles. I can tell when it's just not my day and today wasn't. Luckily I have the flexibility to simply try for a longer run again tomorrow. There's something to be said about toughing out a bad run, but I'm trying to go easy on myself this cycle and I want to truly enjoy my runs, not force them. Stay dry out there friends 😂

I did it y'all, officially a marathoner! Final time was 3:58:17 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Of course my goal was just to finish, but I'm ecstatic to have pulled sub-4. I decided I wanted to do it early on and paced accordingly, and then wanted to die pretty much the whole way from mile 16-26 😂 but was stubbornly determined. Thank you everyone on here for the support, thank you to the awesome pacers and @thesfmarathon for this fantastic event, and last but not least thank you @elyshaomoomy for literally running me through the last half mile when I thought I couldn't do it 💗💞 Also a congrats to everyone else who raced today. Now to shower and EAT.

Week 8- Day 1- CHI training! I read the quote last night "Purpose is an incredible alarm clock" and I think that's so fitting! I don't jump out of bed in the morning ready to train... I half sleepily stumble to the bathroom, get ready, and run my first mile half sleeping. But I have a purpose and it's not to kill myself to be skinny(I'm sure I could find a much more enjoyable way to do that)....I want to run a marathon and run it well. So another week is here and more miles- new workouts- forward towards my goals! Whatever your goal is keep pushing towards it this week- it's easy in the middle of the summer to get tired and over it!
8 miles- 2 warm-up; 4 mile repeats with cds between; cooldown to 8! Happy Monday! 💗

Happy Monday everyone! My body was tired today! But I persevered and got it done. #halfmarathontraining #motherrunner #runlikeagirl #womensrunningcommunity #nevermissamonday

W6D1: 8 recovery miles @ 9:26 avg. My legs were definitely feeling the fact that I've run 30 miles in the last 3 days, but tomorrow is a running rest day thankfully 🙌🏻. Creeper van was back this morning and I spotted him literally 1 min into my run, which made for a not so great start. Thankfully the rest of my run went better and I didn't see him again. It's so aggravating that we live in a world where we have to be so hyper aware because there are so many disgusting people. Trying to not let it get to me! Still a good start to the week 👍🏻PS If you haven't tried these @procompression low trainers... you should! They are amazing 🙌🏻🙌🏻

"For every runner who tours the world running, there are thousands who run to hear the leaves and listen to the rain, and look to the day when it is suddenly as easy as a bird in flight."

I WISH more than anything I could travel, review, and race in the prettiest places, run the most gorgeous trails, and see places like I did this past week. Helloooo dream job 🙌🏼 but at the same time...being home and on my same neighborhood loop has me all the same giddy. Day dreaming about the green country side and cool rain from Ireland as I'm slightly dying in this humidity. 🏃🏼‍♀️💗🇮🇪 #ireland

Best way to cool down after a run ⬆️ a dip in the Maine water 💦

•Major braincloud from a stressful weekend.
•#blistergate2017 continues. Current count is four, including one that is becoming an infected abscess of pain.
•Sciatic shuffle is in full effect. Fighting the #deadleg like woah.

BUT. This guy helps me find my JOY. It is a gorgeous day! So thankful that I can run. 🙌🏻

3 easy miles followed by 40 mins going hard on these wimpy arms. (I'm working on it 😫)
Super excited for tomorrow's workout with some goal pace worked in. I've done so many easy runs this past month, I'm feeling ready for some speed back in my life. 🏃🏼‍♀️

I recently bought $8 resistance bands and they have been the best $8 I've spent // they've provided a lot more variation to my at home workouts // here I am, dead after a tabata set of seated rows // I may or may not have called it quits after those // 😂#strongerthanyesterday .

Monday morning reminder.... don't forget to be awesome 😎
Had a bit of a rough weekend - payback from our anniversary celebrations on Friday night. Fatigue was high all weekend, and then nausea, dizziness and a headache yesterday afternoon. But it's a new day and I've got a busy week ahead, so I'm going to try my best to be awesome!

Benchmark run today and its all under 6mins/km! 😁 I maintained an average of 5:25mins/km before cool down and I feel amazingggg

Back at home! I pushed it today and ran some hard intervals. It was so tough, but I figure if I don't stretch myself I won't make any progress. ⭐️4.25 total miles⭐️
