A glimmer of hope 😊 With yesterday marking 4 weeks of rest for my stress fracture, I ventured out for a tentative jog to test the waters and clear my head.
There was no actual pain from the area but I was definitely “aware” of it, if that makes sense? 😂 Like, it didn’t feel 100% but didn’t hurt either.
I guess that’s a small positive at least🤞🏻
At the beginning of the year I set myself a challenge of running 1000 miles in 2018, so 1620km. I'm within 100km of my target with 6 weeks left, barring any injury or illness I should do it. Here's the proof.
Also a screenshot from my gym session today, can you tell which bit of the session included the infinity staircase of hell?
Sempre fui racional, organizada, planejada, metódica, cautelosa ... bem aquela coisa "me deixe aqui na minha zona de conforto que eu tô bem".
Mas essa zona de conforto, que teoricamente trás tranquilidade, também deixa nossos dias cinzentos, vazios e quase sempre iguais.
A vida é tão cheia de "nãos", de riscos, de decepções, que sair dessa zona de conforto pode ser assustador. É preciso coragem, vontade de arriscar, tentar, acertar, errar, questionar nossas certezas e se jogar em novos desafios.
E no final não há sensação melhor do que conseguir!! Conseguir com maestria ou nem tanto...mas conseguir!
E mesmo quando a gente não consegue, ter tentado dá muito mais sentido a nossa vida e aos nossos dias!
Por isso a gente tem que acreditar! Enxergar as novas oportunidades, agarrar os desafios com força, curtir aquele frio na barriga, e seguir em frente!!
Afinal, por que não???

☕️Wanneer drink je te veel koffie? ☕️
Als je ‘s ochtends rechtstreeks naar het koffiezetapparaat loopt?😴Als je een favoriete @nespresso.nl
smaak hebt, zonder ook echt Nespresso machine te hebben? Ik kan het uitleggen🙈Of pas als je hoofdpijn krijgt als je een week geen koffie drinkt?
Hoe gaat het met jouw koffie verslaving?
P.s. Kazaar is echt fantastish! 😍 Hiervoor gebruiken ze robusta bonen i.p.v arabica bonen
I absolutely love this photo! Her pure joy and determination puts an instant smile on my face☺️I'm hoping my form and determination look this good tomorrow at @parkrunau
🏃🏽♀️💨 Not sure my poor sore little legs will face up to the challenge though! #sportsdietitiancom #runyourworld #weekendracing
I had a great fitness-filled day today! 1.5 miles walked with the pups, 1.5 hours of leaf-raking, 23 minutes of bands and HIIT and an 8 mile run on the mill at average 8 minute pace. Boy, did that make me hungry!! Have a great Friday!!
As you may or may not know, our CEO @iamkeshalenoirfairman
recently suffered some severe health issues, including a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot in her lung) that prevented her from running in the November 4th 2018 TCS NYC Marathon. With the help of the National Brain Tumor Society, she's able to defer her entry to 2019 so her dream to cross the finish line is still within sight! Help her work to her goal of running in 2019 by supporting her with a donation! #Unstoppable
Any donations at all would be a huge help! Visit the link below or from our bio to help!
On November 17th, 2013 i ran @philly_marathon
in memory of my Dad who ended his own life in 1989. It would have been his 61st Birthday on that Day.
Two days ago i was told that my grandma took her own life last thursday November 8th 2018. She couldnt bare the 29 years of sadness she was in after she had to bury her own son (and her husband of 57 years who died in 2009).
Mental health issues run in the family. I had my fair share of that but i can say that running has helped me to overcome most of my struggles (in combination with having a strong lifepartner by my side the last 13 years). It might sound easy, but it wasnt. It was literally a long road. Today i can say most of my demons are at bay. But what worked for me might not work for someone else. But please... if you are affected or know someone who is, seek help! Talk! Listen! You are not alone!
This saturday, on his 66th birthday, i will run the Philadelphia Halfmarathon for Dad.
On sunday i will run the full Marathon for Grandma.
It somehow warms my heart to know that she is now reunited with my granddad, and her son, my Dad, all three watching over me. .
- THE PLAN -
Where it all started – with a plan! Well, that’s not entirely true, but sort of like a somewhat organized start to a new adventure. This is our training plan to my (Dot’s) first FULL marathon, which we started roughly 18 weeks ago.
Running has always been our “thing”…that and 80’s hair bands 🙈 but I’ll save that for another time. But anyway, running has always been a common ground with my dad. It is something that he enjoyed all throughout his child and early adulthood and something that he passed along to me.
I can remember all the way back to him driving me to the track after dinner to practice for my upcoming elementary track meet, coaching me through the route of my first cross country meet, and cheering me on through training of my first half marathon.
And even though he is an old pro at this whole running thing, I’m excited to share this experience with him. (But don’t tell him I called him old! 🤫) #running #father #daughter #runners #runnersofinstagram #texasrunners #runforfun #runningadventures #marathon #marathonrunning #rocknrollmarathon #rocknroll
The Las Vegas Marathon prints have been flying off the @etsy
shelves! Congratulations to all who ran!
I love being outside 🐾☺️🐾
We live in an amazing world where we can get almost anything we want instantly.
Fancy a takeaway? Go on Deliveroo🍔
New jacket for the weekend? ASOS got you covered🕺
Forgotten someone's birthday? Amazon Prime dude🚚
Desperate for a bang? There's apps for that too. And that's free if you know how to talk to people🙏
Wanna binge watch Season 4 of Black Mirror? That's also free if you make a new email address every month, or your old ting forgets to change her password👌
But there's also a few things that we can't get instantly: Fulfilment in our work. Deep and meaningful relationships. Enduring physical fitness. A resilient body that can perform day in day out. A powerful physique that won't fall apart when subject to stress, or when you come off gear. A strong mind that can thrive in the game of life.
These things take time to acquire. They are long and nuanced pursuits, which involve challenges and failure and suffering. And sometimes, they fucking suck. But that's what I'm after🙂✌❤
Evenings like these are very special💫Wipped up a quick & easy dinner last night, Spiced chicken & avo wraps served with asparagus and salsa 🤩Avo’s are currently $1.20 at Paknsave jusssssst sayin 🥑🙋🏼♀️ On a side note , I have two more weeks of calling this beautiful part of the world my home 🏡 Currently feeling very mixed emotions, Queenstown you will always have my heart❣️⛰
“We may train or peak for a certain race, but running is a lifetime sport.” -- Alberto Salazar
With over 90% of people unsuccessful in securing a place in the London Marathon ballot, I would encourage those disappointed to soak in the words of Salazar. As amazing as the London Marathon is (2017 and 2018) what were your motives for entering? A challenge? Kudos from your work colleagues? A PB? Or for a sick new profile picture? 😂
If you are after a challenge ... Gnarly Endurance may have something for you?! 🏔️🏕️🍷 -
Or why not try an alternative tartan Marathon? - - •https://www.greatrun.org/great-stirling-run
