10km Trainingslauf im Wettkampftempo
Ich habe mir mal eine nicht nur asphaltierte Strecke ausgesucht, um meine 10km zu ballern. Die Strecke war nur 30% Asphalt und 70% Kiesweg. Die Windverhältnisse waren dafür nahezu 50:50. Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dieser tiefen 37min Zeit. Ich hoffe bei euch läuft es genau so gut, wenn nicht sogar besser und sonst geniesst das Wochenende.

Sweat. 😅 Smile. ☺ Repeat. 💪🏻
I'm feeling this pull to focus on health and fitness more and more. Maybe it's because I'm deep in my yoga teacher training program and starting to get excited about helping others find their love for yoga and a healthy and active lifestyle more than ever. Maybe it's knowing that I'm about to start training for another half marathon soon. Whatever it is, I'm excited and looooooooving it!

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must run outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.
Early morning 7mi on deck.

Así nos daba la bienvenida la ciudad de La Paz, en la previa al @trialapaz 🏊🏼🚴🏼🏃🏻 Muchos éxitos a todo el equipo! 💪🏼
Tough workout on the track tonight! 🏃🏻♀️ We did w/u, 800 x 8 with 400 recovery, then cool down. I didn’t quite hit all of my targeted paces but I gave it all I had! Didn’t help that I took the first one way too fast. 🙈 My watch shows total including warm up and cool down.

1 year ago I was starting my journey towards the start line of my very first @bostonmarathon which I ran at 4 months postpartum! One of the most difficult but rewarding build ups I’ve ever had for a marathon! 💙💛 I wore my jacket today to remind myself that WE CAN DO HARD THINGS!
Today’s run was all about recovery after yesterday’s big workout. Over the years I’ve learned a few things about recovery:.
💕 YOU and only you are responsible for making sure you are running a true recovery pace.
💕 Your recovery days are vital if you want to hit your big workouts.
💕 I always start super slow and let my body dictate the pace as I progress.
💕 You should be able to carry on a conversation comfortably on your easy runs. If you can’t slow down.
💕 Recovery takes as much dedication as running hard does at times. There is no shame in running slow - it doesn’t make you any less of a runner!
💕 There isn’t such a thing as too slow.
💕 Each easy day is different. What feels easy one day may not the next. Don’t let your watch dictate it - let your body! .

TRACK WORKOUTS ARE BACK!! 🎉
@tara_welling put today’s workout on my schedule last night and I looked at it but truly didn’t realize the volume of the workout (I think that was a good thing!) 🤣
20 minute warm up, 10 x 400 m with 200 recovery, 10 x 200 m with 200 recovery, and a 20 minute cool down 🏃🏼♀️
400 splits (goal 1:30): 1:28, 1:29, 1:30, 1:29, 1:29, 1:31, 1:30, 1:30, 1:31, 1:29 💥.
200 splits (goal 41-42 sec): 40, 42, 41, 41, 41, 41, 42, 41, 42, 41 🔥
This one was so COLD! It was 15 degrees at start but felt like 7! My legs were numb through most of it and half the track was straight into the wind BUT I pushed through and gave it all I had! 💪 I know I could have gone faster in better temperature but know I worked for these and that makes me PROUD! 🙌
10.9 miles total for the day 👟👟

Your desire to change MUST be greater than your desire to stay the same! When I run my easy days I feel great and comfy...but these days are the days where I need to get in that pain cave and let it hurt if I want to see some big changes this year.
2 mile w/up easy
6 x 2 min @ 7:13 w/ 1 min recovery
6 x 1 min hard(6:45), 1 min easy(9:30)
Cooldown to 7 🔥
If it burns, you’re getting closer! 👊🏼 Get out and kick some butt today, friends!
•YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE •
What an incredible transformation I have had in just a year! I wanted this to be a strong message portraying that it didn’t happen over night. In fact, it pretty much took me a year to get to where I wanted to be.....that is, strong enough to run my First Marathon. This is reality and I worked very hard day in and day out to not only get back in to Running shape but to be the best Mommy to my son. Motherhood and Fitness went hand in hand for me and it made me a better person all together. It just wasn’t all about me but I found my balance and made it work! No matter what postpartum stage you are at just please always remember that YOU ARE ENOUGH! .
••EMBRACE the Journey: MY Journey was in no way shape or form PERFECT. Let’s be real here, it was tough, exhausting, overwhelming but also extremely rewarding! I apologize if I made it seem easy or picture perfect as there were just as many downs as there were ups. I’m here for a reason as I always stayed on my own path and loved it for all it’s worth. .
••LIFE is not a Competition: The best thing I ever did for myself was letting go of what others were doing. It was so easy to see what the other mother runners were accomplishing at their postpartum stage and it only added unnecessary pressure. Seriously, for what? I was after one thing and that was getting to 26.2. I stuck with a plan and made myself my own competition everyday! .
••CHOOSE to be Goal-Oriented: Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so strong that obstacles and failures would only act as motivation. Of course, there will be haters, doubters, non-believers, and there will be YOU, proving them wrong. It’s a part of life but never sell yourself short and do whatever it takes to reach whatever goals you have in mind. .
For all the new moms out there, athletes starting over from recovering from injuries or setbacks, individuals striving to lose weight and better their health, and anyone starting a new training plan, PLEASE take a moment to give yourself some recognition that you are starting somewhere and will continue to thrive in what you choose to do!

You'll have to forgive my cheesy grin and awkward pose, but I'm just super pumped I nailed this workout! Honestly, I was really nervous and almost talked myself out of it during my warm-up😂 I recognize I am a ways away from where I once ways, and I know it's going to take a lot physically but more so mentally to get back there, then go beyond. It's been quite a while since I've hit my short to mid distance paces and my head was filled with so much fear and doubt. But I promised myself to try my best and to not beat myself up because I am a work in progress. Well guess what, I just crushed all 5 intervals!!! And though it was actually even harder for me than I had anticipated🙊, I'm super proud I pushed through and made it happen💪🏃 Now it's back to real work I go for a bit then off to get the kiddos. I hope everyone is having an awesome Tuesday!
