•The only time you should ever look back, is to see how far you've come-• ... and today I looked back, I was struggling with my run today and I was not in the greatest mind set, but then I talked to the guy that makes me see how far I've come, the one that celebrates every single second I improve on my runs, the one that lifts me up when I'm down, and he made me remember that almost a year ago when I started running I would run a 5k in 45min; He also reminded me how happy I was that time I ran it under 40min, all of those memories just made me smile and made me remember to not be so hard on myself and to keep celebrating every minute, every second and to run happy! Thanks for the reminder love, I needed it
#transformationtuesday: runner's edition♀️ the photo on the left was from December 2015 when my boyfriend and I ran a 5k. I remember being so proud of myself for running the entire 3.2 miles without stopping. I also remember thinking that I could never in a million years run anything more than that. The photo on the right was from two days ago after finishing my second half marathon, one of the most challenging runs I've EVER done. I am purposely posting these two photos where I'm fully clothed, no #morningabs or #bootygains for #transformationtuesday this week. This is your reminder that you can still have progress without having abs or a significant weight loss. Here, I am not just seeing changes, but I am EXPERIENCING changes: my strength, my determination, my willpower, and ability to challenge myself every single day #transformation#marathontraining#lajollahalfmarathon#rocknrollmarathon
Have you wanted to start incorporating strength training into your running routine but don't know where to start? Come hang out with me @movinshoes in PB this Thursday at 6:15.
Together we'll cut through some noise and simplify things. I'll answer questions like:
What are the high payoff exercises for runners?
When should you plug strength sessions into your weekly running routine?
How will strength training affect your running performance?
Does strength training actually help prevent injuries?
How much training do you actually need to do to make a difference?
How can you get stronger without bulking up?
Be sure to swing by Thursday with your questions! We'll chat briefly and I'll have some toys with me, so you can try some exercises out for yourself. Hope to see you then!
