I mean really, how did that happen?! This has been my first week back after taking time off from running. So far my compression socks have been helping sooo much! I’m very happy with them and need to start buying more for sure. With the cooler weather finally hitting SWFL running outside has actually been tolerable. I was able to run sprints last night outside and not feel like I was going to die 😂
Hope everyone had a happy Halloween and has recovered from their candy comas!
Can I just shout from the mountains how much I love my Fitbit Blaze?!?! I am so thankful for my sweetie surprising me with this bad boy 😍 I’m a visual person and love being able to compare my runs and actually see my progress. I’m coming up on 1 month of having it and I’m still over the moon with it!
I bit the bullet as far as my training goes and made a change. I felt really bogged down and frankly bored with it. I downloaded Aaptiv for a free trial and so far it’s been great. The training is much more varied than my previous program focusing on endurance, tempo, and speed. Last night my first sprint workout absolutely kicked my butt!
With being just over 100 days out from my first half-marathon I knew if I was going to change up my training I needed to do it asap and I’m so happy I did 😀 That and my new running shoes have really given me a boost in motivation 🙌🏻
You’ve heard it. You’ve seen it. Never miss a Monday.
I don’t plan on missing it because today I get to take my new shoes for a spin tonight 🙌🏻 I’m so excited!!
My trip to Fit 2 Run in Sarasota went great. After my gait analysis I tried on several pairs of shoes and found my perfect match in a pair of Asics. Told the guy I felt like Cinderella when I tried them on the second time 😂
What a week and a half! The kids (and the grown-ups) had a blast last weekend celebrating everyone’s birthdays! There was sun, swimming, presents, cake, and karaoke 😂 lots of laughs and love ❤️
I managed to get in over 9 miles while we were in vacation mode, even after having a few too many the night before. Was proud of myself for sticking with it and hitting the pavement at sunrise.
This week was back to school for all three kiddos. I’m still grasping the fact that my munchkin is in first grade. How did that happen so fast?!
Tomorrow I’m heading to Fit 2 Run for gait analysis and purchasing some new shoes. After failing to complete my 9 miler Wednesday I came to the conclusion that in order to keep up with my training for my race in December I have to make the investment. Stay tuned for what I come home with 😀
Not THAT kind of streaking! Get your mind out of the gutter! 😂
A fellow runner I follow on Instagram did this last year and as soon as I saw she started it this month I just had to! Who wants to join me?! Take the challenge and walk, jog, or run 1 mile every day. If you are in Instagram make sure to tag your photo with #streakingwiththecoolkids to join this awesome community. I don’t use Facebook but there is also a group on their you can join.
Today I know I won’t get an interval run in so I did my walk on my lunch break.
After battling the flu (A and B), that turned into viral bronchitis, and eventually viral pneumonia for almost two months I’ve been hesitant to start working out again. This weekend I FINALLY felt up to it. I started where I left off with my 10K app, which I have to switch since it only gives me 10 runs. Thought I got the full app, but apparently not lol!
On the way out I utilized the interval training, the way home I did some old fashioned speed walking. It felt great to get out and run, I forgot how calming it is for my mind. It really does quiet the negative chatter and stress.
Living in Florida there is always great scenery for my runs 😀
