I need to learn to practice what I preach. I knew I should have taken yesterday off but I’m super stubborn and of course I worked out 🤦🏽‍♀️.
.
.
Big lesson learned this morning. Scheduled run was supposed to be 14 miles (2 up, 10 tempo, 2 down). But I was pushing too hard for the tempo miles. I kept talking to myself and remained positive while pushing hard. Finally I decided that 8 tempo miles would be enough for today. As much as I wanted to finish this run, I know it was stupid of me to keep pushing my body so much. So I cut it short by 2 miles. I’m still happy with my tempo splits but I know they shouldn’t feel deadly as they did 🤨. Definitely looking forward to rest day tomorrow 🙌🏽.
.
Tempo splits:
7:21, 7:18, 7:20, 7:17, 7:12, 7:21, 7:17, 7:25
.
12 miles: 7:47 Pace

Let’s celebrate #flexfriday with a #fbf 💥
.
.
Left pic was in 2015, right pic is from this morning. 3 years apart and things are only looking better. I’m also stronger mentally and physically. Whether you run, lift, bike or swim, the key to success is consistency. There’s no substitute for hard work. You have to keep showing up, keep working out and keep pushing 💃🏾🔥

This morning was something I haven’t experienced in a long time. I’m usually able to get up as soon as the alarm goes off but not today.
.
I woke up around 1:30 am and just couldn’t go back to sleep. There’s a lot going on right now, work is crazy busy and school is just flying by but also there’s a lot of work to be done. On the days that I don’t have class, I come straight home to do homework. My days are long and exhausting and I can see how that’s affecting my mood and energy. Even while I was driving home from work yesterday, I just couldn’t keep my eyes open. 😴 no joke, I kept thinking if I could take a 5 minute nap but hello I was driving ☠️🤦🏽‍♀️.
.
I always try to get as much rest as I can and this is why on weekends I rather be home and rest. I’m hoping that tonight I can get some good sleep or I might have to take a rest day. I’m trying to allow my body to have a break, I feel that I’m pushing too much and have a lot going on that I would hate to breakdown. So...I’m thinking I need to take it day by day and see how things go.

Recovery 🏃🏽‍♀️to kick off #humpday🐫
.
.
These runs are as important as a speed workout ☝🏽. I felt amazing today and I wanted to pick it up but I know I have to allow my body to recover from yesterday so I can have fresh legs for my long run this weekend.
.
In the past, I used to compare myself to others and would push my body to run fast every single run 🤦🏽‍♀️. But times were not getting better and I was tired. As soon as I started incorporating recovery/easy runs, it all clicked. I was so hesitant at first, I remember thinking, how am I going to get fast when 2-3 of my runs are piece of cake 😂 but trust me... when you are working hard, sometimes even those easy/recovery runs are hard. Moral of the story is, slow down ✋🏽it can definitely help you in the long run.

#tuesdayworkout was ☠️🔥☠️
.
5 x 1 mile repeats (6:49, 6:49, 6:44, 6:40, 6:40) & I’m pretty sure I died and came back alive many times 🤭
.
Kept reminding myself, it’s ok to hurt, it’s ok to feel uncomfortable, this pain is temporary but it will be WORTH it!!!
.
.
Sometimes, it takes a bit of work to see some progress, this is by far, the fastest mile repeats I have conquered in a long time. I’m satisfied and very pleased that my body can pull this off.

Saturday #longrun was 🔥
.
.
Weather looked perfect. Cold and foggy but within an hour, the sun was out blazing and it kept getting warmer every minute. The goal was for a steady progression run. I slipped twice though 🤦🏽‍♀️but overall pleasant with this run. It’s also my longest run post 50K so I’m happy with it. Happy #saturday friends 💕

This morning was extra hard to wake up, despite going to bed at 8:30 pm (👵🏽). But while working out, I felt great and motivated. I reminded myself that’s it’s only the first 5 minutes that’s hard but once I washed my face, it was on 💃🏾.

Kicked off #4thofjuly at 5 am 🌗
.
Drove down 65 miles to meet the ‘pack for the Morgan Hill #freedomfest5k 🏃🏽‍♀️because there’s no other way I would spend my day off than running with my wolves. Still waiting for results to post as I’m still learning to use my new #garmin and unfortunately, I didn’t press start right when I crossed the starting line 🤦🏽‍♀️😒.
.
Headed back home to do homework and now I can officially enjoy the rest of my day off. 🙌🏽 I hope you enjoy the day and festivities, please be safe out there. 💙❤️

Monday, I wasn’t ready for you 🤚🏽
.
On the struggle 🚌 this morning. Maxie decided that midnight was a perfect time for a bathroom break 🤔. After that I couldn’t go back to sleep and I tossed and turned for an hour 😵. I made the executive decision 😛🤣 that one more hour of sleep was necessary this morning.
.
4 am alarm went off and I switched it to 5 am. Woke up and got ready to go on a recovery run. Took it nice and easy, although it felt hard. 10 minutes went by and I thought 🧐 my watch hasn’t made a sound, I then realized I had not pressed start 🤦🏽‍♀️ can anything else go wrong, yep!!! Within 20 minutes, I started playing with my earphones and turned them off. Tried getting the music back on without having to take my phone out of my back and decided and it was not worth it so I just carried them for the last 3 miles.
.
For sure, it was not the best night/morning but it’s done and tomorrow will be another day. ☀️🌸
