The last full day of vacation is here πŸ˜₯ I won't lie it's a little sad because we've enjoyed so much having Daddy here with us so much! Even though I'm a little sad I'm going to soak up every last second with my sweet little family! These are the moments I'll remember forever and the ones we can never get back.

I contemplated not running for a minute but knew that I'd feel much better once I ran. I went out for 5 easy (but VERY humid) miles and just focused on enjoying the quiet. It was a wonderful and much needed run!

Long run Saturday! YESSS! πŸ’ͺ
.

I just started double digit runs back last week and wanted to try again this week. The flat roads of the beach helped me tremendously! 8:57, 8:33, 8:15, 8:11, 8:02, 8:10, 8:15, 8:08, 8:31, 8:11, and 8:06. A little all over the place but I'll take it! πŸ’™πŸ‘Ÿ

It's easy to get caught up in all the "noise." The voice in your head saying it's impossible, the worries about how far you have to go, the people who tell you you are crazy. It's all noise. In the end it's up to you. Don't knock yourself down before you can get back up. It won't happen over night but with one small focus each day you can get where you want to be!

No running for me today. 2nd rest day if the week but so looking forward to my long run tomorrow! πŸ™Œ

Myrtle beach it was fun! This is where it all began for my husband and I in many ways so it was so special to bring E with us for the first time. 🌴

Thank goodness our vacation continues just at another beach for Memorial Day weekend! Can't wait to spend more time with my little family! Oh and even though i didn't get a pretty photo of my run it did happen this morning - 5 easy (but fussy) stroller miles!

When you get off track or miss a day don't let it derail your whole week just pick it back up right where you left off! πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

The original plan was to do a workout today but I made the decision to just do whatever I felt like for the rest of vacation. I chose to stay in bed for extra baby snuggles instead of trying to beat the heat for a workout because that's what vacations are for right? Still got in a good 7 miles and sped up the last mile for an 8:18 pace. Enjoying the freedom this week of going as slow or as fast as I need! πŸ‘Ÿ

This morning it was raining and when Wes got back from the treadmill I couldn't convince myself to go run. Yes, I didn't run. Even people who run almost every day have days of low motivation. Sometimes tiredness wins and that's ok! One day doesn't hurt you. It's better to be mentally healthy some days! I will count this as a mental health day 😁

Always strive to be better than who you were yesterday.

This humidity is still being a HUGE adjustment for my body. I felt nauseous when I started this run so I extended my very slow cool down to help my body get into it. I went with a shorter workout and did 30 seconds fast, 1:30 slow (x10). My fast pace ended up being around a 6:40 and slow was 9:45-10:00. Let's talk about paces for a second - it's easy to want to compare where you are now to other people or even where you've been in the past. I've been holding out for the secret speed that is talked about coming from pregnancy but I've never seemed to get it. While my paces may seem faster to some I am also running my short fast intervals at the same pace some of my good friends run marathon pace πŸ™ˆ My point is don't compare! πŸ™…πŸΌ We are all at different places and it's important to work with where you are now and only work to better yourself. The less you compare the happier you will be! I promise you that!

First day at the beach started with 5 easy miles. I just have to say HOLY HUMIDITY! I was dripping sweat only a mile in. When it comes to summer, heat, and humidity running you really have to let your body ease into it and don't be so obsessed with paces. Summer is always based off effort not necessarily what your watch says. Don't be too hard on yourself and know it will make you stronger! Time to enjoy some beach time! πŸ‘™β›±πŸŒ΄

New shoes and first double digit run since Boston! .
.
I've been holding off on double digit runs for the last 6 weeks but today I felt like my body was ready. Pre-vacation long run! It was hot and humid (93 degrees) but I was so thankful for a shaded trail for 7 of the 10 miles. I felt good for the most part and am looking forward to 10 days of sun, sand, and surf! πŸŒ΄β›±πŸ‘™

A little throwback picture to Mother's Day but it shows my two favorite guys.
.

I leave for vacation tomorrow with these two and I couldn't be more excited for our first vacation as a family of 3! No running for me today and I'm soaking up the extra time packing and playing with the best little boy anyone could ask for! Resting and getting ready for my first double digit run tomorrow since Boston! πŸ‘ŸπŸ’™ Happy Friday!

Day in day out work hard. It doesn't mean run hard every day it simply means keeping doing what is necessary to get to your goals.

#postpartum speed has taken a while to come back for me and in all honesty it still isn't here but I make it a point to go out during my workouts and just do the best I can. Today's workout was a ladder: warm up, 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 (with equal recovery), and a short cool down. These intervals were tough especially in the heat and especially the longer ones but I did the best I could. One day at a time gets you to where you want to be! Not by rushing ahead or trying to do more than your body is capable of! πŸ’ͺπŸ’™
