“If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it” •••••
February was weird, guys. I dealt with runners knee, fell twice on ice, picked up every sickness that was passed around the office, and logged more dreadmill miles than I ever have. BUT. I’ve also almost doubled my daily calorie intake, I stretch every day, I’m drinking a ton of water, and I’m gaining some muscle. WHO AM I!?•••••
Nonetheless, there’s only 24 days until I take the streets of New York with my new found strength. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m ready to let loose. 👊🏼 •••••
Happy Friday Eve, friends. 💕
Throwing it back to last weekend when Trevor and I ran the Cupid’s Couple 5k. This was our first 5k of 2019 and first 5k in I can’t tell you how long. We ended up getting first place couple overall ❤️🏃🏻♀️🏃🏽♂️ with a combined time of 39:46 (19:49/6:24 pace & 19:56/6:26 pace)
You would never know by the pictures, (because you have to smile in your race photos regardless of how you feel 😂) but those 3 miles were miserable. Sorry if this is TMI- but it was so cold we tasted blood when we crossed the finish line 🤔🤷🏻♀️. Apparently this can happen if your body isn’t used to being pushed super hard in cold weather. (Texan by birth so definitely not used to that cold air). My lungs are hurting again just thinking about it.
I like doing shorter races before official marathon training starts to use as a benchmark and comparison for later during the middle of training. This helps me gage where my fitness level is at and how much I’ve grown since the pre-training block. So it looks like 19:49 is my benchmark. According to my race equivalency chart- if I want to break 3 hours in 26.2 my 5k time should be around 18-18:30 which is 5:45-5:55 pace- YIKES!! 😫🤢 Here’s to dreaming big ✨ If your goals and dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough ❤️ #sarahmariedesignstudio

Just run 🏃🏼♀️ I pretty much always do a hills (or possibly a speed) session in the week and today I just could not be bothered. But I didn’t beat myself up about it, I just did what a wanted to do. I got out and ran. No earphones, no structure, just out letting the day melt away and enjoying every step 🏃🏼♀️ I never make running a chore, I just go out and do what I want 👍🏻 and now I feel fab 💪🏻 #running#runningmotivation#runnersofinsta#runnersofinstagram#thisgirlcan#thisgirlcanrun#rhiontherun
🚨 Long post alert 🚨
I want to sell you an idea, this idea will change your life. That idea is movement.
My fb memory today says its 2yrs since I started counselling, admittedly I paid for this even though the counselor told me I already had the tools and thought process to make change. Its just nice to have your thoughts validated and know that maybe you aren't completely mental.
Back to the main point of movement, I didn't fully start to make progress until I made movement a priority. I've alway taken part in sport and I'm pretty sure it's stopped me completely falling off the edge even though I've come close.
Along with my mind my body had clearly become unhealthy and the 2 go hand in hand "healthy body, healthy mind" an all that.
I started running, I'd run before but never made it a priority. Started with a mile then 2 now I'm covering between 30 and 70 miles a week.
The benefits speak for themselves, you get fitter, lose weight, sleep better, start eating better, you get time to yourself to organise your thought or think of nothing, I often run for hrs at a time and think of nothing.
I'm not saying everyone should run or I'd have started by saying I want to sell you running. Movement is the selling point. Run, walk, cycle, swim, hit the gym, play football, take up skateboarding, walk the dogs, walk the school run. The movements are endless.
You will still have "bad" moments but that's all they will be is moments, they won't linger on for days or weeks or months.
Movement is so powerful and the most natural process for us as humans. The modern world moves so quickly yet our souls are still "basic" they require primative and simple things.
Switch off from the modern world and walk barefoot in the woods your soul will thank you for it.
Hattet ihr gute Vorsätze für 2019? Der Februar neigt sich dem Ende und es wäre interessant zu wissen, wer neue Vorsätze hatte und da auch dran geblieben ist 😁? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Habt einen schönen kleinen Freitag 🍀.

What a week full of sunshine ☀️
Die Sonne tut richtig gut. Und nach den Schneemassen den gesamten Januar über ist es eine Wohltat über die schmelzenden Reste hinweg zu laufen🤗 perfektes Laufwetter 🙂 wieder mehr Helligkeit, mehr Wärme und weniger Nasskalt 🙃
Liegt bei euch noch ein wenig Schnee?
thank you weather for not dropping more snow and ice on us, thank you PNW sunsets for being so lovely even in february, and thank you legs for taking me through another strong and joyful run! always looking forward to more days like this ☺️🏃🏼♀️
I finally made it back to Run United's Wednesday night social run! I hadn't been in forever and I'm so glad I did. The dark winters have made it hard for me to feel energized enough come 6:30. I'm usually tired, over the day and ready to eat all the food.
Tonight we got to demo Altras. Their last demo they were there I ran in the Escalante, but tonight I tried the Paradigm, which I like a lot better. With the Escalante my foot felt as if it wasn't snug enough (I am a narrow) which had it feeling like it was moving too much. The Paradigm was able to be laced enough for my narrow feet to feel happy and still enjoy the roomy toe box. I've been running in Brook's Pure Cadence which is a minimal shoe, so it wasn't too crazy to run in an almost zero drop. The Paradigm will be a nice shoe to add into the rotation! 9 miles for the day (6 am miles, 3pm).
I’m on holiday but I still managed to get 5K in. Albeit, on the running machine, but I’m sure it still counts.
It really was a rough run. The reality was I want s to do 10K, but just running on the machine for 10/15 minutes was boring. Really boring. .
It took a lot of determination to do the 5K. Mentally I wanted to do more, but mentally I couldn’t. My view consisted of CNN, with subtitles.
I need to keep this up; #BathHalf in a few weeks and still got half the holiday to go, so I’m unlikely to get many more miles in. .
Hopefully the weather will lift by the time we get back to #NYC and I’ll be able to get a run around #CentralPark. But I’m not going out in -5C temperatures.
Got a new pair of ultra light shades from @shadyrays They were generous enough to extend a 20% discount to my friends thru the end of the month using code run20. They provide 11 meals to @feedingamerica with every purchase. My kind of mission! Only a few days left to snag a pair. #sharingiscaring
Now just a couple of hundred of miles away from the Florida coast and a few thousand feet in the air, looking down on the vast ocean far below.
No matter how many times you have done it before, I still find it such an odd feeling being in an aeroplane and looking down on the world. Everything seems so insignificant and so small. It’s times like these that you put your own life it to perspective.. We all get so caught up in the moment and life in general sometimes, that we start to take for granted all the things that are good in the world and the fact we are even alive to be able experience it.
It’s so easy to focus on negativity in your life, the news, politics, people that may upset you, things that are out of your control - perhaps in the past...and I’m done with it.
Earlier today, I started reading a very interesting book about the man that founded Nike. There was a time in his life when he was a 24yr old college graduate and had no idea what he wanted to do with his life. One day (whilst out on a run) he decided he was going to get on a plane, see the world and try and start a business in Japan selling trainers.
50 years later he had created one of the most recognised brands on the planet. It’s never too late to stop dreaming.
We won’t all end up creating companies worth billions of dollars but what I took from it was the difference having a can-do attitude can have.
Learn to love hills! Want to improve your speed? Run hills. Improve endurance? Run hills. Improve stride length and build muscle? Run hills. I always notice a huge improvement to my running when I consistently incorporate hill repeats once a week. Today’s run was a 7 mile group run filled with lots of fun hill repeats.
