First workout in 12 days (besides my PT exercises) and boy was it tough 😅. Between post-marathon recovery then getting sick over the weekend, a whole lot of laziness has been happening. But IM BACK!
Update on the hip/butt: no fractures or tears! Just some major muscle imbalances/weakness. PT for a bit and I should be good to go! Hopefully getting back to running next weekend 🤗🏃🏻♀️❤️

heute war Offday... aber morgen geht bzw. läuft es wieder rund 😜😂 Wie sportlich wird euer Wochenende?
Feeling awesome after a strong 2500m swim, with no rest.
Just felt like I was gliding and effortless.
Wanted to do another 20lengths to take it to 3km but I’m long running in the morning for the #BurgerRunLDN so thought I should be sensible.
Who’s in tomorrow?

Los maratones no se terminan con el corazón, ni pidiéndole a Dios que les ayude a llegar, se consiguen con las piernas, chingándole todos los días. 40k de Viernes.
#26marathonerlessons Mile 3: Running a #marathon hurts. A lot.
I mean, duh? In this photo, I was about 150 meters from almost passing out. It was only the halfway point, and I had run 7 miles further than that for my longest training run. Most of these jaunts were in weather 15 degrees hotter than that day.
However, as a #personaltrainer and runner for 15 years, I know that body is a strange machine which reacts differently on different days. I could have let that discourage me, as I could have allowed the disheartening quadricep cramps at mile 16. Had I not trained smartly, I would have been leaner. Consequently, though, foot and back injuries toward the end of my high-mile weeks would have been precursors for a white flag.
Each and hardship in my life was a metaphor for the marathon, proof of my mantra, "You are bigger than this race. It's a fact." The struggles that the @nationwidekids, who the race benefited, are much more difficult than my self-inflicted test of the body and spirit, even if I did start training to overcome -- and did I ever triumph over --serious mental health issues. The marathon is not a test, but a proof of #innerstrength. @cbusmarathon#marathoner#runner#run@runnersworldmag
O sucesso na corrida não acontece da noite para o dia, para se sentir bem preparado, você tem que saber o caminho a ser percorrido e não pular nenhuma etapa.
Seja paciente! Não importa o nível de corredor que você seja!
Hoje acordei com muita saudade do meu grande dia como corredora, sucesso colhido após 4 anos de dedicação!

OMG y'all this NC weather is AMAZING!!! I finally got to break out my Twin Cities Marathon shirt (too bad my arms are so freakishly long for it #tallpeopleproblems 😂). Now we're off for a fun filled day, showing the boys where mommy and daddy went to school💜💛💜💛
never thought I'd run 30km's on a treadmill in my life 😳 ... this effort makes it even harder for me to stomach the fact that I won't be running New York Marathon in 16 days time ... fitness ✔️ mental toughness ✔️ body parts intact ✖️

First run on the strand this week! 🏃🏻♀️My schedule has been busy and to be honest I haven’t really felt like running. I’ve been trying to focus on just getting back in the gym more frequently. I’m still having a hard time with my results from Chicago— I know there is nothing I can do about them and I gave it my all to get over that finish line but part of me is still really disappointed. I’ve been kinda feeling that way in a lot of aspects in my life and when I saw this quote the other day I thought it was perfect. I just gotta keep moving forward, everything will fall into place 🙌🏻 Happy Thursday everyone! #becksliveshealthy .
