Weekend vibes on the trails! I logged roughly 25 miles and 3900 feet of elevation gain Saturday and Sunday. Perfect ending to a 63 mile week of running. Nature therapy at its finest! Im approaching the one-year mark since my seizure, and to be real, its been a rollercoaster of emotions. Physicall...
Taking some me time with a recovery run today because this mama needs a break. Ive been battling a cold this past week thats really kicked my butt. So, Ive been slowing down, embracing self-care, and giving my tired body some love. Remember, its okay to take time for yourself, especially as a bus...
I didnt think Id ever be a mom. In my 20s, I faced the uphill battle of stage IV endometriosis. Countless surgeries, months of grueling lupron shots my body went through the wringer. But amidst the pain and uncertainty, I held onto hope.After enduring loss, hormone therapies, and more surgeries...
Just over here plugging away. I ended another 60+ mile week of running with some muddy trail time. It was slippery and chaotic, but just getting outside made my heart happy.I needed it badly to be honest. I mean, I am so grateful for a treadmill to run on, but there is nothing that compares to be...
I started lifting weights when I was 14. I was the only girl in a boys hockey league and I needed to be strong to keep up. I found a gym that I could run to, filled with old school bodybuilders, and they let me pay $5 a month to lift weights there.My goal was to have tree trunks for legs as a tee...
Back at it with VO2 max intervals this week! These spicy intervals always humble me. Anyone else? Heres what I did today: 20 min @ RPE 5-61 min @ 9 - 10 RPE1 min @ 1 - 4 RPE2 min @ 9 - 10 RPE2 min @ 1 - 4 RPE3 min @ 9 - 10 RPE3 min @ 1 - 4 RPE4 min @ 9 - 10 RPE4 min @ 1 - 4 RPE4 min @ 9 - 10 RPE4...
Does anyone else sometimes get a little frustrated they are not further along with their training? I admit Im guilty. Especially this training cycle with less trail runs than I want - due to kids schedule and other things. BUT I find it always helps to remind myself that theres no set schedule f...
Twenty miles and over 3200 ft of gain on the trails today! Longest run in months for me. It was a rainy and cold run, but running with my husband made it incredibly fun. It was a last minute schedule change to get to run together. And it was worth the extra miles because we had childcare. Somet...
Running is not therapy. It can be a positive outlet during hard times, BUT its not therapy. I know us runners joke about it - saying we run to keep ourselves from going crazy or to deal with the demons in our life. I get it. I do. But I just wanted to emphasize how important it is to seek out hel...
I found out that I lost my big brother yesterday. He would have been 43 years old today. My brother was my best friend growing up. My big hero for years. He was the reason I played hockey growing up and in college and pursued my dreams. He always told me to keep on and never give up. From sending...
I see it ALL. THE. TIME.Runners want to get stronger and faster, so they invest a ton of time into lifting weights with their training. Waking up at 4am to lift weights everyday Taking ALL the classes Crushing it in every sessionCheck, check, check. And youre patting yourself on the back, thinkin...
Just having fun , but seriously, if you tell yourself positive things > you are more likely to have a positive experience. This goes for winter running on the treadmill too! We hear it called the dreadmill as runners, but all that does is give us the mindset that the treadmill sucks. This isnt be...
