Good morning and happy Monday - its time to make some moves this week!
Started off with a 5k recovery run but was feeling good so upped the pace a bit from last week. Managed to knock 2 minutes off my 5k time in 2 weeks.
Then onto a challenege set my @vtbackwoods_fitness - 50 weighted vest pull ups. I broke them up into 5 and had a minute break in between each set. People tell me they can't work out at home because they need to be motivated by other people around them.....well let me tell you something! Iv met some of the coolest and greatest people I know through our online fitness library and groups here in the UK, USA and Canada. Trust me if you want to be motivated you can!
Nothing like a little grilled pizza on this lovely Sunday evening with our freshly grown basil! Post-Sunday Long Run treats! Yum!

BQ day at the Tunnel Vision Marathon in North Bend, Washington.
Spectacularly beautiful course.
I’ll be 65 for the 2019 Boston Marathon; so, my qualifying time is 4:40.
I ran a 4:24;29, today, a nice comfortable cushion.
I’ve never felt so strong in the last few miles.
Ran this on about 22 carbs consumed since 9 pm, last night. No breakfast except a latte with one pkt raw sugar, something I normally don’t do.
Never felt stronger.
Not recommending this WOE for everyone, but it’s working for me.
Did have a bit of a carb spree after the race. Haha! They had chocolate cake! No kidding! Great chocolate cake. Had watermelon, too. Back to the straight and narrow, tomorrow.
Today, I celebrate. #runtampa

Checking goals off. (I did have to change my 10k goal because it would be cutting 8 minutes off my last PR and that was a little unrealistic so I just cut 5 minutes off). #monthlygoals#fitnessgoals#runninggoals
GOOD NEWS MONDAY!!!
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been selected as an official pacer for the @melbmara half marathon and this year I will be wearing the 2hr flag with fellow #ballaratrunner@kylie_loves2run
I can’t wait to get there and help you reach your running goals!
Dinner was simple & oh so good:
1. Baby back ribs rubbed in garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, sea salt! Cooked on 350 for 1.5 hours.
2. Pasta salad: ancient harvest rotini, chopped veggies & @primalkitchenfoods dressing! Chilled is best!
Simple & delicious!

Meal prep yeah! —
1. Taco salads — ground turkey + low sodium taco seasoning. Plain Greek yogurt, salsa & cheese in these wonderful plastic containers (amazon find).
2. Protein box — hard boiled eggs 🥚 can be pre-bought.
3. Buffalo chicken salads — so easy: canned chicken, Franks hot sauce, bolt house ranch dressing ... so good!
4. Go to snacks: nature valley almond cups, RX bars, power crunch bars.
Fail to plan, plan to fail.

It goes down in the PM — workout. Your girl never works out at night, but when she does - she does it with @1stphorm non stimulated pre-workout (AlphaCrE HD):
1. Gives you the strength, but no caffeine.
2. I could have not ran, but I still got it done.
3. We had a very busy day, so I pushed it to tonight & am so glad I didn’t skip!
4. You’re in control of your mood.
5. Marathon is approaching!

Am so happy I took these two to Burgess Park to do 5k park run with me. We were 358 runners.. they went to London for holiday and end up running with me. 😍 I hope they will be motivated and inspired especially my runner girl Maya! Keep running Maya. #running#runninggoals#burgesspark

Soooo... I might be that special type of crazy 🙃😜 I have been running on and off since my teens, but I have never really done much with it. There were many moments when I thought about it, but really didn't have the headspace to persist. It was a dream, but I never acted on it. It was my decision last year to make it a reality to finally run more competitively. So, I jumped in and signed up for my first real run in a long time. 12 months after my first @runmelbourne, I am hooked, and my first half mara has been locked in for October! 🤗😎 #halfmara#runningyogi#furtherfasterstronger#runninggoals#onewomanrace#repost@solmotive
I am so inspired by this 10 week accountability journey that culminated in accomplishing a very challenging, mentally and physically, life goal...a half marathon, 13.1 miles. 2 strong sisters, one goal, two journeys. You can achieve anything in life! It starts with a dream, turns into a goal, and with hard work, dedication, and a plan, it becomes reality! What goal of yours is ready to be turned into a reality?! We want to know ❤️ #strongsisterssd#halfmarathonfinisher#afchalfmarathon#winners
Had a wonderful weekend celebrating my birthday!🍰 I am a very lucky girl to be surrounded by amazing friends and family 💕
Iv been very slack with my posts on insta after GC marathon & I think iv lost my running energy 🤷♀️
Melbourne Marathon is just around the corner and I’m definitely not ready- so I’ll just see how the next few weeks of training go.
Today’s goal is 5kms and a Studio class...see how we go!
I’M IN!! For the past couple months I’ve been considering canceling my bid number for this years 1/2 - I’ve had no time to train & have battled a couple injuries. But a few dear friends said, “why don’t you just try for a long run & see what happens?” So I did. I ran slower than the slugs 🐌 & had to walk a little between miles 10-12 but I did it - thank you to those lovely motivating friends 💜💜 .

Just a year after my diagnosis and treatment started, it's unbelievable to be able to do this. I did think it would give me trouble as I have issues with running that I saw a physio and podiatrist about a few years ago and I didn't think I'd done enough running to do 10K, but hats off to the design of the #thesixpackrevolution program. I was ready and I didn't hurt myself doing it. Brilliant. 😁
Always look in the direction you plan to go⏩ .
30 kilometer Sunday run to Muiden ✔️ .
Registering for Amsterdam Marathon ✔️ .
Training to break 3 hours😬 ✔️ .
May you commit to the impossible, conquer things that scare you, and never dare to look back👀➡️ .

A long, sweaty, humid 16 miler complete ✅ Extra credit for hitting some bridges today: 1 x Queensboro, 1 x Williamsburg, 3 x Pulaski 😎🆙
Really sad that I didn’t hit my planned mileage today (20 miles), but had to listen to my body and cut the run short 😭Hoping to try again one last time next week before tapering!! 🙌🏻
Up and up again - Today, two great things happend:
First, I’ve tried the first incline of 350m in altitude after a full two months and it has worked out. I was able to run it all without pain and I was even using my right forefoot in a more or less natural way.
Second, I’ve signed up for the planned half marathon in two weeks on the 2nd of September. My goal is a time below 1h 10min, which would also mean a new personal best. It’s exciting because I have no idea whether this target is realistic or ridiculous! @run_out_there
Hope you’ve had an equally awesome Sunday and wish you a wonderful week!
