  • God is GOOD!!!! Not enough praise hands to even put to represent how happy I am about this run 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 * * * Leg/calf felt good after doing absolutely nothing yesterday. But I still wasn’t sure what to expect for today’s long run. I taped it this morning, and decided to just give it a try. I told the girls once we started that I wasn’t sure how long I would go with them, but I’d just play it by feel as I went. Felt a little tenderness and almost weakness when I first started- but once I got going it felt completely fine and I almost forgot about it! Good company definitely does that for you ❤️ (thanks @vogburn and Jenn!) It also helped I think that we kept the pace nice and easy. * * * Now that I’m back and have stretched, eaten, and walked around- it doesn’t feel any different or worse than before! So I’m hoping that’s a good sign! Still thinking maybe I just pulled a muscle or something 🤷🏻‍♀️ * * * Rest day tmw.... so lots of stretching, foam rolling, and icing before Monday’s speed work. Not sure about that one yet... but I’m just gonna take it one day at a time! This week was supposed to be my highest mileage week ever with 60 miles.... but because I took off yesterday I only had 52 miles this week. At first I actually let that bum me out... but then I remembered how many blessing God has given me!! I have NO reason to let something as silly as a missed run to steal my joy!! God reminded me yesterday that my joy shouldn’t come from running or any other worldly things- but my joy comes from him!!! And I’ve got plenty of time to run higher mileage! * * * If you are still reading this... sorry about writing a book this morning 🤣 Happy Saturday y’all!

  • Does anyone else’s hair look like this after a hard workout🤷🏻‍♀️😆 I told ya guys, I have no control over this hair of mine. It was a bit breezy out there, but geez...looks like I stuck my finger in a light socket. So, I had another big workout on the schedule for today. Im really enjoying my training lately! Coach says we will shift gears in a few weeks, but right now I’m loving the workouts & mileage. Here is what I did today: 3 miles up 2x800 1 x 4 miles @ threshold pace 4 x 400 3 miles down There were prescribed walking recoveries in between each set. This one felt really really good👌🏽 I hit all my paces and felt great afterwards. I ran this workout alone, but my run crew surprised me at the end & we ran the cool down together. Now I’m off to run some errands & get ready for a big night downtown. Kenny Chesney is in town & it’s time to party. Happy weekend, friends!! 🤠

  • Chaos-Thea on tour🙈 Heute früh beim Bäcker hat alles angefangen: Brötchen gekauft, bezahlt, liegengelassen, weggegangen. Stadtausfahrt gemerkt, dass ich Hunger habe und mich gewundert, wo mein Essen ist🙄 Also umgedreht und zurück zum Bäcker. Weiter ging es mit dem mulmigen Gefühl, was ich beim Packen meiner Triathlon-Tasche hatte😭 Irgendwas habe ich vergessen. Ich hab's gespürt! Mitten auf der Autobahn, halbe Strecke (1,5h Fahrt!) zurückgelegt, kam wie aus dem Nichts die Erleuchtung: die Radschuhe!!!!! Aaaaaah. Optionen durchgegangen. Bleibt nur: Ich starte morgen mit Laufschuhen auf Klickpedalen😂🤪😭 Dachte eigentlich, nach Wiesbaden 2014 hätte sich das auf der MD gegeben, aber dann halt nochmal #backtotheroots 😂 Dass Regen für heute gemeldet war...jo, habe ich am Rande mitbekommen, aber heute morgen war es so schön warm und trocken. Also: Flipflops und kurze Hose an. Mittlerweile trage ich Socken und Laufschuhe für morgen, damit mir die Füße nicht abfrieren. Bitte! Drückt! Mir! Die! Daumem! ...dass ich dran denke, dass ich DIESE Schuhe morgen brauche 😂😂😂 Auf einen entspannten Wettkampf.[WERBUNG]

  • This is the face of a girl who ran a half marathon on a treadmill tonight. I'm probably just as wet from sweat as I would have been if I ran in the pouring down rain tonight. I started too fast and got frustrated early on in the run. At about mile 7 I took a 10 minute walk break to reset my body and my mind. I really didn't think I would finish this run, I almost gave up about 1700 times but I just kept putting one foot in front of another telling myself to just get to the next mile. I took a few breaks every few miles but unofficially I pr'd my half marathon time. Average pace worked out to 14 minutes and 36 seconds which is right around where I want to be right now for my long runs.

  • Mi primer Trail Running #Ibi #lanitdelesermites ¡gran experiencia! Siempre junto a mis @owlrunnersalicante ✔️14K 1:36:25 He sufrido sobretodo en las zonas de campo por no llevar las zapatillas adecuadas... Sin duda noto que al ser nocturno pierdo visión y seguridad. Muchas cuestas que he superado gracias a los entrenamientos del equipo ... aunque alguna cuesta la hice andando y las escaleras también tuve que caminar en algún momento ... También hemos ido andando algún trozo porque no cabíamos por los caminos todos los corredores que éramos... Feliz de superar otro reto. He terminado con buenas sensaciones. Si me preguntas si repetiría ya sabes que soy un facilón... #runnersofinstagram #correyolvida #runninglove #runnerslovers #alicante #owlovers #run #runner #running

  • Pretty idyllic race conditions today for my attempt to beat my 45:09 10km PB. Given that yesterday I felt completely unconfident that I would be able to beat 45:09 and get under the 45 minute mark, even right before race start I wasn’t sure today was going to be the day. However I just set out that as long as I try my hardest that’s all I can be happy with. And my hardest got me 3rd place and a new PB of 43:40! Absolutely over the moon! Now if only I can manage that after a 1.5km swim and 40km bike! 🙏🏼 What makes it more exciting is my first 10km race at Manchester Great Run was 1:03:24 - so pretty much 20minutes knocked off my 10km time! Keep training, trust me it works! #tritraining #ituworldtriathlonchampionships #ituworldstraining #wtsgoldcoast #running #thisgirlcan #runnersofinstagram #humansoftriathlon

  • Toward the beginning of official full training, it was January and cold. I remember setting out one morning with the temperature in the teens (Fahrenheit), and a quarter inch of ice covered with a light dusting of snow on the pavement. It was very slow-going and I thought “this will be good practice if there ends up being snow on the course.” Also, as mentioned before, I was in a very hilly area, which I figured would be good for the elevation profile of the course. That was incorrect on both accounts. I was told there were about 8km of snow-covered course as we reached the highest point. To get an idea of what it’s like running on snowmelt, imagine running on the beach (the dry sandy part, not the water-packed part), then imagine it twice as slushy and twice as slippery. I honestly couldn’t tell you for sure but I’m pretty sure it’s easier to run it bc you seem to stay lighter on your feet and not sink as much. I found that whenever I tried to power joke it, it was worse. Contrary to what most others around me were doing I stuck to running it best I could. I’d be interested to hear some others’ experiences with that. As I was about 5-6km into the snow, I remember thinking to myself “this snow was cool and all, but I don’t think I’ll miss it.” That was true, but I found what was MUCH more challenging and made me wishing for snow running, were the downhills. Those shredded my quads to the point that going down stairs was still uncomfortable four days after the race. Ok. Maybe five days. I’m not convinced that any feasible Hill work at my disposal training in Searcy, AR would have completely and adequately prepared me for the hills...

  • Last night, I FaceTimed a dear old friend, which was a bright spot in a challenging day. She knew me during the years I battled #Lymedisease, and she marveled at my being healthy now. • • Reflecting on those years and the nearly 2.5 years I’ve been healthy since then, I decided to run wearing lime to celebrate every #lymewarrior. 💚 And, the powerful, stormy sky seemed a fitting backdrop—and also made for a fun (and perhaps a bit too fast 🤫) long run. • • When I was sick, I often despaired that I couldn’t find more than a handful of stories about people who had gotten their chronic Lyme in remission. But, now I know that the last thing healthy people want to think about is the time they spent not healthy. Looking back is an exercise in perspective, gratitude, and humility; it’s important to do now and then. But, it’s something I usually save for good, celebratory, I’ve-come-so-far moments. 🎉 • • But the truth is, each #lymefighter out there needs to hear stories of healing and hope. In the vast and complicated world of chronic illness, every story of illness and health is different. But, there is something to learn from each of them. • • I have a few more detailed accounts of my attack plan (or, you know, “healing journey,” if that’s how you prefer to think of it!) on my blog (wanderstruckstudio.com), but in a nutshell: ▪️It’s often said that treating Lyme and friends can be a lot like peeling an onion—lots of layers of coinfections and conditions. I ended up treated #Lyme, #bartonella, and #candida. ▪️Buhner’s herbal protocol worked for me when six months of doxycycline failed. ▪️It is so important to find a physician that you can trust. After being in the offices of a neurologist, hematologist, urologist, and rheumatologist, I ended up spending a lot of time being my own doctor. BUT, my family doctor gave me the go-ahead to try an herbal protocol, checked for contraindications and side effects, and monitored my health along the way. ▪️Horowitz’s “Why Can’t I Get Better” is a good read for developing an understanding of multi-system illness. ▪️Keeping a symptom journal is key. 📓 It’s the best way to find patterns and trends. • • If I can help, please DM me!

  • Tried my my kicks #hokaoneone Arahi which are by far most comfortable shoes I’ve tried to date. Excellent arch support and highly recommend this. | | | My first run today in 7 days and naturally was a crappy one but I’m glad to get back out there. My calf felt great today but didn’t want to overdo it but luckily I’ve got an appt with the running coach/coach tm and I hope its the first day for a great running career. | | Special thanks to everyone who wished me well on my recovery, you have all inspired me on my road to recovery. Especially @ikecr your words of wisdom from afar yet so effective. | | Now... time for me to eat some noodles

  • #tbt to California dreaming (and running). #bestillmyheart 🌴🏃🏻‍♀️= 💕. . I’m headed back to California next week to visit one of my best friends from college and (drum roll). . . to run the San Francisco Half! #woohoo Real talk, I’m not nearly as trained as I should be. #atall This will yet again be another “take in the sites and enjoy the journey” type of half marathons. Seems to be my theme this year🤷🏻‍♀️ . . and I’m 100% okay with that. I think we often put so much pressure on ourselves to reach certain goals and fulfill these images of what we think we should be or do. We get so caught up in how we define ourselves and/or how others define us that we miss out on all the amazing things that exist in the process and the journey. We forget to giving ourselves a break. 🤦🏻‍♀️. . I run, my friends know me as a runner, I’ve hit some pretty decent PRs, and I coach. . . but my running is just one aspect of me. I’m ready to run this half pressure free, enjoying the lovely city of San Fran for the sole fact that I love running. 💪🏼 #thefitlife #enjoythejourney . . Also total random side note: How excited am I to excited to run across the @goldengatebridgeig??? #very It’s like an item on my bucket list I did not know was on it until I signed up. There will be plenty of pictures. #yessss #storiescoming 🌁. . Cheers #sanfranciscohalfmarathon runners! See you in about a week! #runnervibes #itscoming .
