Marathon training is hard... hit my paces ✅ , marathon pace felt comfortable ✅, whole run felt tired ✅, hotter than I anticipated (took off my arm sleeves mid run ✅, underfueled ✅, tired AF after ✅.... successful run, none the less •• ••
3 x 2 mi @ GMP(kinda fast-ish) with 1 mile between sets... my sets had everything from up, down, flattish... 7:01, 6:58 ✅
Check out my story, if your an elevation junky... 🤦🏽♀️😬😭
7 years ago today I was 41+ weeks pregnant, the day before i was scheduled for my induction. Had my last OB appt and nothing had changed, dilated 2cm and fully effaced. Had been like that for 5 weeks and my lil girl was snug as a bug... we were all packed and anxiously anticipating her arrival. I would walk (waddle) into the hospital at 7:00 am on Feb. 19, 2011...with my bag in tow, never once feeling a contraction and ready to meet my lil love 💗🌸🎀💕... to be continued.... By @runrunrae
I haven’t run in 2 and a half months. 😳
I haven’t really missed it. 😳
Though, I have missed that feeling you get after a run. When you’ve finished your run before people have even gotten out of bed for the day.
I probably need to get back on track. Figure out something to motivate me. I also probably need to book in to see a doctor about my achy ankle.

Mais um bloco de treinamento finalizado. O corpo começou a sentor o desgaste da sequência, a final não é um treino, uma semana, é a consistência, o desgaste constante forçando o corpo a se adaptar.
Com o treino de hoje iniciei o penúltimo mesociclo de preparação para maratona, nesta fase o foco é a preparação específica e velocidade. Mais 4 semanas e começa o polimento. Ansiedade batendo na porta já.
Took advantage of a day off from work today and got in 6 easy (and windy!) recovery miles. Legs are feeling pretty good after a big weekend. Looking forward to running in 70 degrees in hotlanta this week! 🙌🏻
Montag = sportfrei!
Dafür aber der Haushaltstriathlon: bügeln, waschen (diese Berge an Sportwäsche 🙈) & (gaaaaanz wichtig) den Kühlschrank wieder auffüllen... Demnächst gibt’s übrigens auch mal meine engelsgleiche Stimme zu hören: @laufenimmuensterland & ich podcasten gemeinsam 😊
Seid Ihr gut in die neue Woche gestartet?
Happy President’s day! 🇺🇸 My little guy didn’t have Mother’s Day Out today so I was able to meetup with a couple of mamas from our local @momsrunthistown chapter! 🏃🏽♀️
I love running with fellow moms. My first year postpartum was lonely. I didn’t connect with many women or leave the house often. Last spring, I made an effort to find friends & get out of the house & it was the best thing I did for myself. This cute little mama on my right is who got me back into stroller running! 😍
Today’s wind was out of control! 🌬 It felt like I was pushing a tank but I was grateful it was warm. The run was 50 minutes easy followed by some park play! 🤸🏽♀️ #jessrunsok#runokc#runwiththepack

I feel bad complaining about the winter because my run today was actually really nice ! I don't mind the snow when its light and fluffy and not slick and heavy! And its really just the dark that I don't like. Once the sun started to come up, I really enjoyed these 6 snow miles.❄❄❄It's race week guys!!! Easy miles with strides for me all week and then on Saturday I begin my end of winter/spring racing! 5k time !!!!! #runnerslife#runnershigh#monitorthebeat
Yes, I posed for this photo because there was no way I could hold still and smile during class. The shake was on this morning!! @megsmile and I met at 6 am to try out the new Roseville location and what a great class! In 40 minutes I worked every single muscle and was dripping sweat💪🏻💦 What I love best about the Megaformer is that there is no impact and it helps you focus specific muscles, it’s even so kind as to point out the ones that are weaker - like my right glute is definitely needing more strength. And the new Megaformers are amazing 😍 #instaphysique#megaformer#monday#stronger#workout
The price of discipline is always less than the pain of regret... JUST RUN! •
9 is fine... of course I wanted more but hey... at least I ran. Running the streets is never my favorite... but there is something special about the streets of Mexico that make me forget I’m out on the roads... I love all the friendly people here.... EVERYONE SAYS BUENOS DIAS... when I run by them... and everyone makes eye contact here... no looking down awkwardness... People here... LOVE PEOPLE!! It’s time to regather myself and hit the weights... because if you’re doing it right... you should NEVER MISS A MONDAY... xo #runningwiththeCOOLKIDS#caboLIFE#justJEN
Boa tarde! Galera ...todos os dias aprendo algo na corrida. E procurar levar sim para minha vida pessoal e profissional. Às vezes tudo parece tão complexo , difícil que nas primeiras dificuldades desistimos por falta de tentar novamente, de olhar e até mesmo de fazer outras interpretações . Por isso aplique os sinônimos de coragem , determinação e foco na sua vida . Tenho certeza que após colocar em sua rotina tudo se tornar mais fácil menos doloroso e o melhor mais feliz ! #sòvai#sovai somosn1r #numberonerunning#garotasn1r#nike#ZoomSquad#NikeZoom 📸@caduvigilia

🔅Find your passion - begin with a single step 🔆
Starting the week with 12km @ easy pace / weather was perfect •Monday • Fresh Start • after the weekend 💆🏽♀️ yesterday was rest day & and Saturday my usual longish Run (15kms)
So struggle, be “slow”, run just one or two days a week... Who cares. Just don’t quit and you can become a great runner too 🙌🏃
