It Was a Good Morning and Match Made in Heaven.

I was up just before 6 am to put in a little work on the ‘mill. 4 miles done at a 7:38 pace plus strength training. It was a good morning.

I told myself I was going to keep the run in the 7s and that’s exactly what I did. Sometimes you just have to grab your goal by the horns, hold on, and prove to yourself that you can, in fact, do hard (and speedy) things.

Lots of bicep curls and arm work this morning with the weights too. My arms are indeed feeling it already.

I have to teach a spin class tonight and it will likely involve me being off of the bike dancing around the room. With this jam. The Irving club loves them some hip hop crunkness…and so do I so it’s a match made in heaven.

And oats for breakfast. With lots of color in them. I don’t know about you but I like my food to be pretty.

I’ll leave you with some runspiration for your day before I get to work.

Do you have any goals you are hoping to crush this week?

  1. 7:358 pace? Akjdfaskldfj you are good! I’ve just been trying to run everyday. Not exactly a goal that I’ll ‘crush’ or anything, but I’m just enjoying the run! Have fun teaching spin! I wish I could take a class you teach one day xx

  2. Woo hoo, you were kicking @$$ this morning! Way to go! It’s my dream to be able to run that fast someday for more than a hundred yards. 😉 Loving that inspiration…running makes me happier about my body, too, because I start thinking about how strong it is instead of how it is shaped. My goals this week: get back into my running groove.

  3. I don’t know you have an Aldi’s in TX, but they’ve been having blueberries for 99 cent a container. I freeze them, take out, rinse and eat em like candy. Super healthy and good for on the go.

  4. My goal this week is to run four days. I’ve already got 2 down so I hope I don’t .lose steam! I also really want to start practicing yoga more often but it’s hard for me to motivate myself to do it alone (I just find it too boring alone…but I love it in a group!) Also you just reminded me I have to get some strength training in today. It’s been too long and cardio will only get me so far 🙂

    • I try to run 4-5 days a week. I also do a LOT of cross training. I think strength training, cross training, and stretching (yoga) is key to staying injury free. I have been doing all of these things for over 5 years (and have run a total of 10 full marathons and almost 20 half marathons) and have not really been seriously injured…it works for me! Everyone is different though. Happy training!
