Even though I was ecstatic after my first lift with it, I spent the next week feeling unsure about it. I wasn't sure if I had dropped it too early or didn't stand up fully with it, and I wasn't able to get any steps in with it.
When things don’t go as planned. Up 2lbs from last week 122.6 (5’7). I pushed HARD this past week. I asked coach if I could push past the given cardio & he said if I felt ok go for it. I did double. My body said 🖕🏼. However I’m thinking its inflammation & with a rest day today & re-feed it will come back down. 3 more weeks & I sure hell plan to keep pushing! #leavenodoubt#teamprophysique
Lesson of the run: don’t limit yourself. Set your goals high!
Kenley and i can’t believe how fast i ran!
Today’s run was a 7 min tempo run. When I looked up tempo it said 30 seconds slower than your 5K pace, so I set my goal to run around a 11:30 pace.
Instead of watching my clock I decided to just go for it and see what happens. I mapped out a .6 mile run that started and ended at my house and to my surprise when I got to my house my couch (in my @nikerunning app) still hadn’t said to stop so I kept going. Turns out my pace was 2 mins faster and I ended up running .15 miles longer!

Not the best at doing bodybuilding poses but I gave it a shot. 🤷🏻♂️🙌✅

Lesson of the run: Instead of letting bad things bring you down, take a step back and see how they are making you stronger!
I had two goals for today’s run
1. Run atleast 1.6 miles (@nikerunning app set my run as a comfortable 20 min run)
2. Run the whole time; no walking
I felt really great and ran as much in the grass as I could, for my shins. Around 17:30 I was trying to cross the street, stepped wrong, started to fall and corrected my step so I didn’t but twisted my right ankle and left knee in the process. I hobbled across the street and sat in the ground and started to cry. All of these negative thoughts rushed into my head: I just thought to myself I just got off an injury how is this happening to me, maybe this is a sign I should just stop. I thought about calling Brian to come get me.
I took a couple deep breaths, stretched and got up and started to walk. After a few mins it started feeling a little bit better. So instead of giving myself an excuse to quit and give up, I hit play and ran the last 2.5 mins.
I’m trying to be really transparent with my personal struggles and growth with my mindset in hopes it inspires or motivates other who may be struggling with this weakness like I have. Mental weakness can sometimes be HARDER to push through and get over than physical pain! But you’ve got this and you are not along! Take your weakness and learn and grow through it and know I am here to love you through it! #leavenodoubt#nikejustdoit#postingforpersonalaccpuntability#youcandoit#slowandsteadywinstherace

Today, I get to masters swim and I am the only one. YAY for me! 🎉 I get one on one with @joe_mon_tag
Confession: I used to hate swimming. I would find every excuse in the book to avoid it. I would get so frustrated to the point of tears. I tried out a different masters group prior to finding Joe. That group made my relationship with swimming even worse. I felt like the slowest in the pool because truly I was. When we had to share lanes, I felt trampled and in the way. I would drag my husband with me, but because of how fast he is they always took him out of my lane. It truly felt like taking a kid’s blankie away 😢. I just wanted to get out of the pool each time they moved him. I wanted to quit because looking around all of these swimmers were leaps and bounds ahead of me. How on earth was I ever going to compete with these people. Honestly, I probably still can’t competitvely keep up with all of them, but I have made huge progress. That progress has come from finding a group that works for me. I don’t hate swimming anymore, I look forward to masters. I look forward to the constructive critique. I look forward to actually making progress. It is amazing how finding a group and coach that works for you can change your outlook on a sport. I still say the swim is what stands between me and my 🚲. But I don’t hate the workouts anymore which improves life all around!
My selfie before the race. And the second pic is the blurry pre race pic that I had to filter. Third pic, my beautiful medal 🏅
I am happy that I was able to start this race. And even happier that I was able to finish. My MS symptoms started on Saturday afternoon when I went for a 3 mile shake out run. First of all, my breathing was way off. Many would like to blame the altitude. But New Mexico isn't far off in altitude. So I couldn't say it was that. My whole body felt fatigued. And my muscles were cramping. In fact, that 3 mile run was more like a walk/jog fest. After I got back, things weren't right with me. Brain fog and some emotions came. I could tell I was going to either NOT be able to run my race. Or, it would be difficult to finish if I had started. Barely ate dinner. And went to bed VERY early. Didn't expect much. But when I woke up on race day at 3 a.m., I felt much better. And I HAD to try and run. There was no way I was not going to try.
The race went well. I was able to run the whole first half of the race. Which I'm actually surprised I was able to do. And the second half was walk/run. I don't feel like it was horrible. I wish I didn't have to walk. But I am so happy that I wasn't miserable and wanting it to end. In fact, I really enjoyed it. Best part was the spectators. They had me with a smile THE. WHOLE. TIME. And I earned that beautiful medal!!!! Thanks for reading if you got this far. And thank you all for the love and support 😘💕: Finish time:2:56:51
