Second SeaWheeze @lululemon half-marathon in the book! Look at that cute little medal 🥇 LOVE running through this gorgeous city with my love 🇨🇦
Truth be told, this #pinoepose was meant to get a little attention from the event photographers as we approached the finish line 📸 If you’re unfamiliar, google “Megan Rapinoe” ⚽️
I’ve come to love US Women’s Soccer thru my partner & have such respect for the team and what they continue to fight for beyond the pitch #equalpay ✊
This is not a subtle pose. This is not a timid pose. This is a “take up space cause I deserve it” pose. It surprised me by how vulnerable & powerful it felt to hold it. Try it sometime. It’s a badass pose that demands confidence. You gotta know you’re worth taking up some space 💜
Kettlebells today. Kettlebells are great for building strength for runners and for all round fitness. Not only are they great for toning but they are also good for a cardio workout. Today’s circuit consisted of; double arm swings, single arm swings, single arm swings with snatch, fig 8, up right row, single arm row, squat, snatch, deadlifts and press-ups. Three sets of each starting at 7’s then 5’s then 2’s. With press-ups at 10 and double arm swings at 20 at the beginning of each set. Phew 😅 Then a session of core work. Including: 3x25 kettlebell v sits, 3x25 KB swimmers, 3x1 min Spider-Man plank, 3x25 runner sits, 3x25 simple crunch. All in a day’s work! 🏋️♀️💪👍😅👍Happy Monday one and all. Keep training hard. #kettlebellworkout#coreworkout#strengthtrainingforrunners#runner#marathonrunner#ultrarunner#personaltrainer#leamingtonspa
Something I’ve always been anal about! Working with the balance of Training and required rest behind it.
Yes it feels good to constantly train and feel like you’re progressing, but without the rest time put in, your body ain’t recovering or getting stronger for your next session!
Same with me for example, yesterday, and every Sunday I do these crazy 2 hour+ long runs as part of my running plan, but I literally have that just once a week, Monday is my recovery / easy run day where I’d focus on that easy run and just foam roll and stretch throughout the day for recovery.
Then the hardwork will start at track again on Tuesday and then I’d have another easy / steady run on Wednesday for recovery but still putting in miles!
Rest is most important next to training, get those stretching sessions in, have a massage or just literally take a rest day!
One of my main Mottos is; Work hard, stay consistent, be patient, get results. All those 4 work together, put in the work, follow the plan, don’t expect results to happen overnight because you’re giving 100% weeks on end, make sure recover and rest and the results will come in time! • Message me for a detailed plan and schedules around your lifestyle and let’s see your goals become reality
