Happy Hump Day! 🍑
No running today, but got to the gym for glute work and plyos! All of this gym time is to get me back to Marathoner status again!! Hoping all the strengthening will keep this now minor, but there, hamstring issue, at bay!!
Here’s to onward & upward!! Great things lie ahead! 💃🏻
Pic from the archives! 😃
Yasssss!! Guess who got outside today for a 4 mile run! 🙋🏻♀️
It was cold af at the start, but i didn’t care! There was no way I was getting on that treadmill today! By the time I finished, I felt amazing and recharged and having the sunshine kissing my face, well, it was just perfect! ☀️
55 minute arm workout + run for today.
Guess it was a good day for a gym workout with all the snow we got!!
Glutes & hams today plus 3 miles running!!
I didn’t want to risk slipping outside so I stuck with the treadmill...AGAIN!! I’m over it! Lol But definitely got a good sweat!!
Hope I can run outside tomorrow!!
How was your Monday?
Bc when it snows, we all get a little crazy and excited! 🤣 #jerseygirlshenanigans
Fun annual Christmas 🎄 Brunch with my girls then hit the gym for my workout!! See stories! 😜
Feeling so thankful for family, friends, & health!
PS. This snow is beautiful!! I love it! 🥰
Back, delts and arms
16 minutes walking incline on TM.
35 minutes running
9 minutes stepmill to finish it off.
1 hour total cardio!
Just a whole lot of selfie action on this Friday! 😜
1st pic: post gym workout I did after work after my hour and 45 min commute —->quads, glutes & abs!
2nd pic: during my run (Ran during work break) when I had to stop and look at the deer! 🦌 there are two...can you see them? There was something so peaceful about them and it was so quiet out there!
3rd pic: post run selfie in the bathroom at work just cuz’! 🤷🏻♀️📸🤳🏼
I didn’t even have time to shower 🚿 before getting back on position! Oops! 🙊 but apparently a lot of the runners do that there, then shower on their next break!
Do whatcha gotta do!
Hope you’re having g a great Friday! I’m going to FINALLY shower and chill with my kiddos! Feels like I’ve hardly seen them this week and that’s been rough! Missing my babies! But oh yeah, it’s back to work in the AM!
It’s only cold if you’re standing still! •
Well I’m calling bullshit on that one today! I froze my ass off my entire run this morning! If I’m being perfectly honest, my run sucked. I was so hungry when I ran, very very tired (as I went from night shift last night to day shift this morning) and my hair bun fell out. I just wanted it done.
Anyway, it’s just a small piece of a bigger picture and that’s what I’m going to focus on.💪
Today was 40 minutes running
20 minutes elliptical for my morning workout
For my PM workout...1 hr and 15 minutes or so at the gym for Back and Delts which made me just wanna die! Thanks a lot @curly.blonde_with_biceps for the workout! I’ll be sleeping like a baby 👶 🍼 tonight! 🤣
Monday’s are now my Sundays! #shiftworker here, but still made it to the gym today for glutes and hammies!! Followed that up with a 2.5 mile run!! Nice and slow and nice and easy in this crazy ass warm December weather! 🤔🤷🏻♀️
Mostly a productive day and I totally kicked my creamer in my cawfee habit! 🙊😬🤭🤪😲 Who am I? Lol
What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever given up, food or beverage wise?
Haven’t done one of these posts in forever!
I went into this race simply to get a new 5k baseline. Coming back from my hamstring injury has been so tough physically and mentally. I have been sooo discouraged with my running and wondered if I’d ever get back. I don’t think I’m 100% out of the woods but I’m feeling very optimistic. Anyway, I was so pleasantly surprised when I can in with a sub 10mm pace. While this isn’t my fastest 5k, it’s great for where I am now...which is basically out of running shape! Or outta shape in general! Lol!
Finished the race in 30:41 with a 9:52mm that earned me 1st in my age group! 🤷🏻♀️ who knew!? So I’m excited for the future and what it holds! I have work to do! Stay tuned Bc I’m gonna bring it for my spring 5k race! Yes, I WILL bring a PR! 💪 heading into the gym now to work this 🍑! #gluteslegday#runday
Thank you all for your words of encouragement! Also shout out to @sarajgilliam ‘s hubby for capturing me in the course! Love the photos! I didn’t even see him! This was around mile 2! 😁
Happy Sunday! 😃
I did it!! First and only 5k of the year!! More on that later, but for now, I’m happy and proud of my efforts today! Time for yummy breakfast with the hubby! @m.a.rq at @masondixoncafe ☕️🥞🍳
Oh and dude on the back right...”bruh” 🤣🤣🤣
Very low mileage month, but I’m super happy with it!! Coming back from injury is so tough! Remember my hamstring?? 🙄 It still acts up here and there, but it is sooo much better with all the rest I’ve taken!! But with all that rest came ice cream, cookies and wine and...well, ya get my drift! 🤷🏻♀️ time to put in some work...more miles, more smiles, and more everything fitness!
4 chilly miles this morning during my break at work!
I 🖤 RUNNING.
I love running in the fall.
I love this cool crisp air.
I love the crunchy leaves beneath my feet.
I love the way I feel alive.
I love challenging myself to do better.
I love that running is always there for me.
I love it all!
Shake it off...Shake it up!
Easy runs are meant to be just that...EASY!, but why oh why, do they sometimes feel so hard?!
Anyway, that’s ok! My plan is/was to take it easy this week Bc next week I’ll be shaking things up! 💪
🏃🏻♀️Running, 📀Records, & 👯♀️fRiends!!
Big cheezy smile lol! Swipe left and see what I really looked like on my run🤣!@runnergrld caught me at the end of the run! Yep, it was a little rough for me today, but 4 miles in the run bank 🏦!
Really enjoyed my coffee and company and while I didn’t break any records on my run, I scored some good records today! 🙌 check out my haul!
What’s up Fam!?!
Loving and taking advantage of this perfect running weather!!🌤
It’s my Monday...(Shiftworker here) so just now getting into my week, but maybe I’ll shorten it up since it’s Thanksgiving and all! 😉
Thursday could easily turn into my Friday! 🤔

🏃🏻♀️Kickin’ off my Monday with a nice 3 miler, but I ain’t gonna lie, I wanted to stay in and sip on coffee ☕️like a champ! 🏆 I mean, I do that shit really well! Just sayin’! But alas, I got my ass 🍑out the door and ran in at nice 10:23mm average!
Hope you’re getting outside too! Perfect weather for a run! Happy Monday!
Seriously can’t get enough of this beautiful fall! 🍁I just love it!! So happy I got to run with Amber @am_runs_frm_ca2va today and catch up with her!! Two days in a row running with friends and I really needed them more than they know!! 🥰#thankfulforrunningfriends
