Not your usual pose after running.. but it should be! Love seated bow pulling pose that I practice regularly @sunshinehotyoga . Practicing yoga not only helps my running by breathing and tolerating stress BUT It helps strengthen and release tight muscles from 🙏🏻 Letting the back open up is incredible and #MuchNeeded after 6 miles (4 @ 7:30) 😌 #yogaeverydamnday
4am workout for the win😂 (I don’t love working out THIS early but I’d rather get it done early then worry about if it’ll happen at all 🙌🏼

Happy Tuesday, friends!!!
Are you looking for an easy on the go & healthy breakfast? Sounds like an oxy-moron doesn’t it?
I found these breakfast bowls to do just that 🍳 with a side of grapefruit, or any fruit for that matter (oranges, clementines, Apple slices, banana, etc)
It’s easy to make ahead for the week which is exactly what I do - put the mix in a bowl, cover it with foil and throw it in a Tupperware container for work to be heated up 😋
2 lbs of potatoes (sometimes I use sweet potatoes)
1 medium onion
1/2 red pepper
1/2 green pepper
Cut these up & place on a baking sheet with some olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, and a dash of cayenne pepper
Cook these at 425° for 50-55 min checking and stirring every 15 min
2-3 tbsp butter (I skipped this)
Salt & pepper to taste
Scramble the eggs & cook on medium heat on a skillet pan that has been sprayed with pam
Once everything is a little cool mix all together, cover & put in the fridge or if you have enough Tupperware, dish it evenly into each dish for the week!
Easy, delicious & nutritious 🙃

💡T R A I N I N G S T I P P💡 ❄️Ihr wollt bei den (immer noch) kalten Temperaturen euer Lauftraining fortsetzen? ❗️Dann achtet auf euch und eure Gesundheit! Wir haben euch ein paar unserer Tipps für ein gesundes sporteln bei der Kälte zusammengetragen. 🔥Warm-up
Bevor ihr los stürmt, wärmt euch ein bisschen auf! Ein paar Hampelmänner, Liegestütze und Kniebeuge und der Kreislauf kommt in Schwung. Alternativ könnt ihr auch ein bisschen auf der Stelle laufen - natürlich im Warmen. ☃️Das Zwiebelprinzip
Bei dieser Kälte möchte man am liebsten zum wärmenden Ski-Outfit greifen, aber das wäre eindeutig zuviel des Guten. Orientiert euch lieber an der Zwiebel, also Schicht für Schicht. Es sollte trotzdem atmungsaktiv bleiben. 💨Atemwege schützen
Wer gesundheitlich vorbelastet ist, sollte bei starken Minusgraden lieber ein alternatives Training in warmen Räumen einplanen. Ansonsten gilt - tragt ein Buff oder einen Sportschal vor Mund und Nase, um eure Atemwege zu schützen und die kalte Luft vorzuwärmen. 👃🏻Erst Nase, dann Mund
Richtig atmen gilt vor allem bei den kalten Temperaturen. Es gilt: die kalte Luft durch die Nase einatmen und dann durch den Mund ausatmen. 🐌Weniger ist mehr
Wenn es draußen richtig kalt ist, dann solltest du keine intensiven Einheiten absolvieren! Also lieber ein entspanntes Läufchen, die Intervalle kannst du dir für die wärmeren Temperaturen aufheben 😉 🏃🏼♀️🏃🏼♂️Wir wünschen euch viel Spaß beim Training! Passt auf euch auf und bleibt gesund.
Hitting all my paces on my speedwork = how Jessica got her groove back! ⚡️8 miles total! -
I never shared this but right after I got back from Arizona I got in a car accident. Everyone was fine(except the cars) but the next day on my run my ankle immediately hurt on my long run. I really had no idea where it came from- thought I rolled it or twisted it on ice but I honestly couldn’t remember doing that and my ankles have never given me issues! After seeing my doctor yesterday and talking through it he said most likely I put pressure on it when I slammed on my brakes and the force strained it. I never even thought that could have been the issue! I’ve been running on it and honestly it doesn’t hurt when I’m running anymore but I’ve also been babying it and was scared to do some of my workouts.
Doc said I’m fine- gave me some homework, and today I let go of that fear in my workout!
8 miles total today-
6 x 400’s @ 6:50-6:35 w/ .25 recovery
Felt freaking amazing and was exactly what I needed to build back up my confidence! 🔥
Happy Tuesday! Let’s GO!!!
Some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.

What a difference two years makes! In 2016, I was just hoping to finish and had that omg everything is hurting and I’m dying look. Not to mention full on sweat pants, multiple layers, cotton shirt and terrible “running shoes” oh and that horrible stride..... on Sunday I beat my 2016 time by nearly 3 minutes, I never once worried about finishing and no cotton anywhere. Charmander evolved into charmelon 😈. Now on the 🌸 10 Miler will #gettheselegs
You have to wakeup and ask yourself -what’s it worth to you?
Declutter, organize, and motivate.. All things required.. The only thing holding you back is YOU- decide to hold yourself accountable and put skin in the game.. nothing comes for free 💯
Smashing out some miles with the @fulhamrunningclub lately. Love running on my own, but even better when you have some amazing lads & lasses right on your tail 😜🏃♀️

Seek out challenges. Don't always play it safe.
Pushing past limits means that you have to test the limits. You'll never realize your full potential if you don't seek out opportunities to challenge yourself in new ways. These types of challenges take you out of your comfort zone, and may not be directly related to what you are trying to achieve. They may simply serve to make you stronger overall.
The willingness to take chances and risk failure instead of playing it safe is the only way that you will discover what you are capable of.
This is an important lesson that I learned on my journey to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I never realized how empowering it could be to get outside of my comfort zone until I tried it. I don't really need mental toughness skills when I run races and workouts in ideal weather and when I am in peak condition. These skills come into play when I am faced with new challenges and adversity.
I used to always seek out flat courses courses and flat places to train because I knew they would be easier than hills. But now I seek out more challenging places to train and I don't shy away from the heat or rain. Tomorrow I will run in miserable conditions: 36 degrees, heavy rain, wind, and darkness. It won't be "fun" but it's part of the process. In order to determine what I am truly capable of, I have to test the limits and get out of my comfort zone.
This photo was taken two years ago at the Shamrock half marathon. I set a PR in a torrential downpour with 20 mph sustained winds and heavier gusts. Despite these conditions, I set a PR by nearly two minutes. This will be my motivation as I brave similar conditions tomorrow.
