I always used to try to talk myself out of going to the gym. 💭 "I don't want to drive there. I don't have enough time." Those were excuses.
Now I don't have time to make excuses. 🙅🏼 My gym is at home, right at my fingertips! 📺📱💻
I am looking for FIVE women for my next virtual boot camp starting October 9th! FIVE women who are serious about making a change. You will have access to an entire YEAR of at-home workouts, a 30 day supply of a nutritious (and delicious!) superfoods shake, meal plans, grocery lists, portion containers, and you will have the support of other amazing women to cheer you on along your journey. 💕
So if that sounds like something you're interested in, shoot me a message and let's chat. 🙃📲

600 meter repeats!
Yes, I have been running, and yes I have gotten all of my runs in. With work, school, physical therapy, and running things have gotten kinda crazy! I'm just asking myself how bad I want it! The only difference between today and when I did this workout last is instead of 90 second recoveries like last time, I dropped it down to 60 seconds. Each mile is going to count towards this marathon, and I'm not letting go of the goal just yet!
[ENGLISH] KIPCHOGE IS READY TO CRUSH BERLIN BUT IT WON'T BE EASY
Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge, literally and figuratively, has done what no one else has done in the marathon. Not only has he run 2:00:25 for the marathon distance, two and a half minutes faster than anyone else, he has run eight non-exhibition marathons, winning seven of them, including the Olympics. He has run 2:05:00 or faster six times. His fastest official marathon is the 2:03:05 he ran in London last year on a course that is historically much slower than Berlin.
He is still eight seconds off Dennis Kimetto’s world record of 2:02:57. To get the mark in Berlin, however, he will have to defeat the second fastest man of all time, Kenenisa Bekele, and Wilson Kipsang, the former world record holder.
“A man can run 1:59, that’s for sure,” he said. “I just missed it by 25 seconds so it’s not impossible.”
[ESPAÑOL] KIPCHOGE ESTÁ LISTO PARA REVENTAR BERLÍN PERO NO SERÁ FÁCIL
Eliud Kipchoge de Kenia, literalmente y figurativamente, ha hecho lo que nadie más ha hecho en el maratón. No sólo ha corrido 2:00:25 en la distancia de maratón, dos minutos y medio más rápido que cualquier otra persona, ha corrido ocho maratones profesionales, ganando siete de ellos, incluyendo los Juegos Olímpicos. Ha corrido 2:05:00 o más rápido seis veces. Su más rápido maratón oficial es 2:03:05 que corrió en Londres el año pasado en un curso que es históricamente mucho más lento que Berlín.
Aún está a ocho segundos del récord mundial de Dennis Kimetto de 2:02:57. Para conseguir la marca en Berlín, sin embargo, tendrá que derrotar al segundo hombre más rápido de todos los tiempos, Kenenisa Bekele, y a Wilson Kipsang, el ex récord mundial.
"Un hombre puede correr 1:59, eso es seguro", dijo. "Estuve a tan solo 25 segundos, así que no es imposible".
Oggi il mio menù di running prevede 3x4000 rec 500 mt! Un lavoro lungo ma che diventa meno infinito se fatto in compagnia.🏃🏻♀️ voi cosa fate?

A slightly different kind of #transformationtuesday... And a reminder that this running thing isn't a perfectly linear journey, and that's okay. Above, we have my first timed adult 5K in 2015, my 5K PR in February, and my 5K from last weekend. I'd just done my first Ironman a month or so before that first 5K so there was definitely some solid fitness to set that benchmark. It took nearly two years and hundreds of hours of training to chip away at those paces and get to that 19:10 5K. And yet just a few months later, I'm seemingly back at square one (although I know/hope it won't take so long to get the speed back again). This could be -- and at times, is -- extremely frustrating to compare the runner I was just earlier this year to the one I am right now.
But guess what? We've all heard the phrase, "Comparison is the thief of joy," right? We do ourselves a disservice when we compare ourselves to others -- *including* past versions of ourselves! It's good to acknowledge what we've done before in the sense that we know we can do it again. But we shouldn't let that comparison rob us of the joy that can be found in our current situation. This is especially true for runners, since we'll all have to take some downtime and "start over" to some extent at least once along the way. Best to be happy that we're running in the first place! 🙌
And as cheesy as it sounds, even though the numbers were vastly different on Friday than they were in February, there was one common denominator: I gave those 3.1 miles my all. And that's the part that matters most! So actually, no matter what the watch says, I've been the same runner every step of the way. 😊
