A poor quality picture in a dreary, dark house with my mom and dad!!

Again… my legs and runs have been so heavy and tired lately. Due to this and my BIG DECISION yesterday regarding taking off the Fall and Winter from any sort of racing/intense training….I have slowed down all my runs!!

a.m: Weight Lifting-– strict press, push jerk, bench press— followed by the following::

– EMOTM (every min on the min) for 10 mins: 10 burpees ((so total 100 burpees)) omg killed me!!

Tuesday 7/30

a.m: 8.0 miles 7.57 pace–yayyy for long slow runs!!! I am not very steady at a slower pace yet… but here were my splits: (8.24, 8.13, 7.57, 8.09, 8.17, 8.10, 7.23, 7.02) I picked up the last 2 miles.

Refueled with my new obsession:

So begins the slow, relaxed, easy miles as my body changes and adjusts to my new eating/new weight/new STRENGTH.

Once I get my period back and feel I have MENTALLY overcome my disordered eating…I will once again start training and racing and getting my NEW HEALTHY BODY to knock out some awesome runs!

Have a Great Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Nice job! Keep taking it easier ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’m having a weird hip/leg situation happening right now, so nothing too intense is happening. I think it just may need some rest, but hoping to get in my long run this weekend.

    1. uhh hip pains are the worst! I feel like that is such a tender area… especially for women athletes! Take super care of it! Don’t want a stress fracture or anything there! Keep an eye on it… but if you feel good enough for a long run this weekend then ENJOY it and take it slow and feel the blessing of being able to run ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for your encouragement!!

  3. Still loving how your slowed down runs are my super-fast-lightning runs. Seriously, like sprinting pace. It’s all relative, huh?

    1. And to many other runners out there MY sprinting pace is their easy days!! Yes it is all relative!! It is wonderfully humbling ๐Ÿ™‚
      We all should just keep enjoying running and the sweaty awesome high that we get from it and do our best!!

  4. Your slow pace is my super fast past and I am so jealous! Haha you are my inspiration!

    1. Girl you and the 1,000 jobs that you work throughout your busy day and STILL get a workout it… that is MY inspiration! You are one busy girl!!! Can’t wait to hear about your upcoming triathlon!! ๐Ÿ™‚
