This was a crazy run. First time pushing the beast. Not pictured: my other four kids. It was hard to get out the door. I couldn’t find my water bottle, earphones, or a hair tie. It was busy at the greenway so trying to keeps the kids out of the way and close was a challenge. It was a little harder pushing two kids again, but 5 min recovery 2 min run x 3 and a long cool down. It felt good and the kids got some energy out and it was so warm! #momlife#motherrunner
On my easy days, I focus on A L L the little things, which end up making the BIGGEST difference in the long run (no pun intended) 😝 Lately that has been working on cadence and foot placement directly under my hips. When I get tired, I tend to lean forward from my hips - this is NOT what I want and is just causing me to waste energy. Yes, you should be leaning forward while running, but that lean should be coming from your ankles!! I also tend to over stride when I get tired, so really focusing on that cadence over here 😜 Hope everyone’s having a great holiday!! It’s windy as heck here today!! My run was frigid and more effort than I hoped for. #gorun#worlderunners#runnersrepost#runinrabbit#radrabbit#worldoftri#iloverunning#runhappy#run#zensah#cleaneating#runningterritory
It's okay to be nervous. It means you're about to do something really freaking awesome!
I had the same goal today as yesterday: run pushing Emma without needing to stop, but today it would be done solo. I wouldn't have Burley with me to keep me encouraged. And I was nervous. Like really nervous. I even said to Emma "I'm so nervous about this run today. I won't have dada with me, it's just you and me today." and with quite the sass, she said "mama! It's okay to be nervous! But you don't hafta be nervous!" and we set off. I didn't let myself look at my Garmin again, I just wanted to keep going. And not only did my body feel decently well, but it felt strong and I was able to run a mile more than I had planned. When I looked back at my times afterwards, I was glad I hadn't during because they would have probably frustrated me, but in that moment with all those endorphins running through my body, I was so proud, that I didn't care how long it took me! A mile is a mile is a mile, and to God be the Glory, today He let my body be well enough to knock out 6 with my girl! Dare I say I'm finally on the upswing of this upper respiratory/cold crud. I may or may not have totally cried tears of joy after this run too. 😂😭
