Ready, set, GO 🏊🏼♀️Tried out my new @nikeswim suit after today's run and I loved it!! I've never had a proper swimsuit that was meant for swimming laps in - let's be real bikinis 👙 just don't cut it - so I was so excited to try it out! Yes, the water was freezing, but it honestly felt so good after today's 8 mile run. This will definitely become part of my workout routine. Happy Monday!!

I remember being 14 yrs old, fresh out of the hospital, sitting in my first outpatient occupational therapy session and being SO frustrated. I was mad that I had to sit and relearn a myriad of simple tasks like tying my shoes, and getting increasingly frustrated at how difficult it was proving to be. The one handed bow was different, I didn't like the way it looked, there was a single "bunny ear" and my OT encouraged me to use a "tool" to help, (essentially it looked like a sewing needle with a loop on the end, shoved into the handle of a potato peeler) 😐
I didn't want to have to carry around a tool, and I didn't want elastic laces. I just wanted to be able to tie my shoes again like I had always done.
I didn't go back to OT after that day. The idea of someone with zero one-armed life experience teaching me how to navigate the world one-handed just didn't sit right with me. I was determined to tie my shoes the "normal" way, and now I do! & on a good day just as fast as I did with two lol. (Thinking about posting a tutorial/vid??) Anyway my point is that it didn't happen over night!!! It took me an ENTIRE YEAR.
That's a whole year of asking for help, avoiding tennis shoes, and squeezing my feet into shoes that were already laced tight because I refused to untie my laces.
Now I tie my shoes without having to think about it, and I only remember that it's different when someone catches me doing it and are like "wait... whaaaaaat 😮" patience is a practice, consider it an exercise for your mind, if every time you want to give up, you train yourself to feed your mind with one encouraging thought, it will literally change the way your brain functions, and soon enough, you won't have the doubt. ...All of my fellow amputees know that losing a limb just leads to increased lev
Today’s running mantra: you are a star ⭐️ Even though today’s run was short, the mantra was on repeat in my mind to get me through them. It’s so funny how some long runs feel short and how some short runs feels long.

Hoofdstuk 2 van 2018 was februari; een rustige maand met sneeuw, sneeuw en sneeuw❄️. We liepen onze eerste 10miles in Apeldoorn ( #midwintermarathon ) als voorbereiding op de halve. Deze liepen we in (je raad het vast al) de sneeuw❄️. Erg bijzonder en mooi. Verder was het een maand van rustig afwachten op bericht op de scriptie en de maand sloten we af met een korte wintersport! Voor het eerst sinds lange tijd weer samen over de piste knallen⛷🏂. Het was behoorlijk koud maar wel genieten. Enne, zeer binnenkort komt maart. Dit was voor mij een bijzondere maand dus stay tuned als je nieuwsgierig bent😁!

Si ets runners equipat de peus a cap, i no de cap a peus.
Changing behaviour and overcoming negative habits can be challenging. I can be such a happy, positive person but my downfall can be to go in the totally opposite direction. Since I was a child I have been an expert of letting a negative thought enter my head and spiral down a big hole. Over the years I think this behaviour has got in the way so often and held me back. In recent years I have been working on changing this. The negative thoughts still come of course but I don’t want to let them beat me and keep me from living the life I want. . This morning I woke up with my negative head on. As lay in my bed thinking and I was ready to throw a spanner in the works and make one small thing into ‘everything in my life sucks’ even though it doesn’t. . I thought to myself about how when I’m running, especially during races and negative thoughts come in my head I’m able to get my brain through it; It’s an ability I’m pretty proud of. I could have just dropped the kids at school and come straight home to carry on being negative and generally had a bad day. Instead I put running clothes on, drank some coffee and put on my trainers and ran those thoughts away in the cool winter mist. Just like when I am racing I am learning that I have to push through the things that are holding me back, fight my fears and quieten the judge inside my head! A big fat win for running again, you little beauty!

RUNNERS 🏃♂️🏃♀️ If your looking to really get stuck into your hips and stabilising muscles in your lower body then try this little balancing banded hip abduction exercise. .
With most body weight and band exercises aim for REASONABLE FAILURE and try to complete between 2 - 6 sets with NO REST when switching legs.
Thanks to @sazzleb23 for the demonstration @inlinefitness
