6 years ago this man and I were getting ready to say I do! It's been an amazing 6 years full of so many ups and downs but I wouldn't trade one minute for anything! πŸ‘°πŸΌ

We started our anniversary off with a run, of course! Daddy joined us for a few miles. I had my long run today which called for 75 minutes. My legs were tired but having him there to start off the run really helped me! Overall a good run and happy to have finished week 3 of 5k training!

"I hope you never lose your sense of wonder. You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger. May you never take one single breath for granted. God forbid love ever leave you empty handed. I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens. Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance. And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance. I hope you dance." πŸ’™πŸ’™

Saturday's filled with family time, seeing this little boy's face light up at the simplest things, and experiencing the pure joy of a simple swing are the best things in life! Keep that joy little one - always! .

A very common mistake many runners make is doing their workouts too fast. Yep - it's true! Even I've been guilty of it πŸ™‹πŸΌ Workouts aren't supposed to kill you. Yes, you'll have to work hard, it'll require you to dig deep, and it won't feel easy but they aren't meant to take everything away from you. I had a simple goal for my 3rd workout this week - to make sure I was maintaining consistent effort but not over doing it!
.
.
My workout called for: 12 minutes easy, 3 x 8 minutes steady effort (with 3 minutes recovery), and a 12 minute recovery. I was very consistent on my 8 minute intervals with my paces being: 7:40, 7:37, and 7:37. Goal achieved! πŸ’ͺ

There is so much running teaches us - good and bad. I think it's so important to listen to it! I've gained some new followers over the past couple months so I thought I'd share πŸ”Ÿ things about my running journey with you all!
1️⃣ I started running in college after seeing my boyfriend (now husband) get into running marathons.
2️⃣ It took me 3 years to get up the nerve to run my first race. I was not trained well at all for it but it did get me hooked!
3️⃣ I ran my first marathon in October 2011 in 4:43 and then again in 2012 in 4:38.
4️⃣ I ran my first Boston Qualifier in December 2014 in 3:29 after 1 cycle of training (a 1 hr 9 min PR). I ran my second BQ in October 2015 with a 3:26.
5️⃣ I got pregnant in March of 2016 and had to miss out on my first Boston at only 7 weeks pregnant.
6️⃣ I ran through 36 weeks of my pregnancy and over 1,000 miles.
7️⃣ I don't consider myself a "talented" runner at all but simply someone who works hard.
8️⃣ I lost a lot of speed during pregnancy but am working to gain it back.
9️⃣ My husband is a 2:25 marathoner and working to qualify for the Olympic Trials
πŸ”ŸMy favorite running quote is: "To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." -Steve Prefontaine .

So - tell me about YOU! How did you start running?

Last run before my rest day and a second run in a row solo. This is unheard of! I really had to focus on slowing myself down since I wasn't pushing a stroller. I made sure to stay around the hilly areas near our house to ensure I didn't get out of control. A beautiful morning and rocked some of my new @avia.official gear! By the way - want to try out Avia for yourself?! You can use the code SARA25 for 25% off! Since they apparel is already super affordable it's an AWESOME deal!

We've got some fun events coming up this weekend so I'm looking forward to a rest day tomorrow and then finishing out the week strong! πŸ’ͺπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

It's not always going to be easy. You're going to have to work hard and it will hurt but in the end that feeling of accomplishments trumps it all! πŸ’ͺ

Morning workout without baby for the first time in a while. 12 minute warm up, 3 x (4 x 2 minutes) with 1 minute recovery and 3 minutes between set, and 12 minute cool down. Definitely had to work for the last set of 4 and probably could have paced myself a little better but felt good to get out there and work! πŸ’ͺπŸ‘Ÿ

6 months in vs. 6 months out

I will be the first to admit that I wasn't one of those women who was back to pre-pregnancy weight 6 weeks after birth. I held on to that last 10 lbs for what seemed like forever. It wasn't until just recently that I finally saw pre-pregnancy weight again. While the scale may be what it used to be my body is not. I'm still a work in progress for sure but im pretty proud of the hard work I've put in to make my body STRONG! Little by little I feel like me again - and while I may not have slept through the night in 6 months I've become a much stronger and better runner from pregnancy and becoming a Mom. I wouldn't trade a second of this amazing journey of #motherhood! πŸ’™πŸ’™

Another 4ish hour night of sleep (pray for us as we sleep train again tonight) and I was so thankful for an easy 40 minutes on the schedule today where I could go as slow as I needed. Oddly enough I felt strong today. My legs weren't tired and my heart and mind just wanted to run! Some days these bodies of ours surprise us! I'm excited my Mom is coming to stay with us tomorrow night which means two days of solo running! πŸ™Œ

Full disclosure: I had a really crappy attitude about running this morning. I woke up after a very tough night of sleep, my body was still tired, and the last thing I wanted to do was a workout - with the stroller nonetheless. My husband gave me a simple reminder - don't overthink it.
.
.
I went out to the trail and just started as slow as I needed to get my legs into it. 12 minute warm up, 35 minutes moderate (7:58 average - 4.4 miles), 10 x 15 seconds FAST (with 45 second recovery), and a short cool down. I just went out there and did it and tried not to think about it. Dreading something doesn't change it so I knew I had to stop thinking about it and just do it!

Happy Father's Day to our rock, our love, and the one who always keeps us smiling and laughing! Easton and I love you so much! Thanks to @sarahmariedesignstudio for making this awesome shirt! πŸ’™#fathersday #fastaf #father #son #fatherandson #dad #daddy #lovehim #run #running #runner #bestdad

Tired legs, muddy shoes, knotted hair, but a happy heart! πŸ’™

This morning called for 75 minutes my "long run" for the week during 5K training. I woke up so tired from a baby who now takes 1-2 hours to settle when he wakes at might and sore legs from my hill workout yesterday. The overcast skies however made it seem easier even with the 98% humidity. Enjoyed this one but I am happy tomorrow is finally my rest day!

Who is this running on a Friday?! I have some family obligations on Sunday so decided it'd be best to take that as my rest day this week. I won't lie my body was still feeling my Wednesday workout but I knew I had one more to get in this week. Even with the significant decrease in miles during my 5k plan the intensity is way up and my body can feel it! Mind over matter! πŸ’ͺ
.

Today was hill day. I love/dread hills all at the same time. My hubs had the morning off so we went out and tag teamed running with Easton so we could both do hills. 5 x 45 second hills at around 75%-80% effort and walking back down. The hill we chose was a beast! Starting at 5 hoping to work up to 8 by the end of the cycle!
