You should always find time to exercise, it is so important to schedule a few times a week where you get a sweat on, raise your heart rate and get active. There’s no two ways about it, it keeps you healthy, it keeps you fit and it makes you feel good, it’s a necessity to live a life that’s devoid of diabetes, heart problems, cardiovascular disease and every ache and pain that comes with being overweight, I get lots of people telling me they can’t find time, their lives are too busy to fit it in. You don’t need to spend hours at the gym, you need 30 minutes of raising your heart rate whether that be walking back and fore to work, putting some music on and dancing in your kitchen, a game of tag with the kids - anything that gets you moving! I had limited time today, so I ran for 25 minutes, it’s not what I would have liked to have done training wise but I’m working right up until this evening and I have no time to do anything else so it’s better than nothing! It was under half an hour out of my WHOLE day that I managed to get in something that will make me feel really positive and in control of my life! . . . . #motivation #doitfortheprocess #notimeforbullshit #getitdone #stopmakingexcuses #ifyouwantitbadenough #dowhatittakes #fitnessjourney #fitfam #fitmum #keepactive #fitinaworkout #sweat #justsaying #runningformylife #fitnessmotivation #fitinspiration #fitnessblogger #fitnessblog #fitnesscoach #endorphins #feelgood #shutupandtrain

It was like Armageddon on Norland Moor this morning on the run home from school drop off. Not a soul in sight. Sideways rain and wind nearly blew my false lashes off! 😃👀The last time I wore this hat and experienced those conditions was in April at the @bostonmarathon 😳💨🌬💦💧Thankfully, today’s run was only 3 miles not 26.2. #thankfuckforthat #runningformylife #windyrun #roughoutthere #whydrivewhenyoucanrun #runhomefromschool #pissedwetthrough #bostonmarathon2018 #armageddon #comebacksummer #whatdoesntkillyou #illdrivenexttime 😳💨☔️🌬💧💦🏃‍♀️👍😂

Making this truer every day. Felt good to run with @headspace and @nikerunning today where it was about barriers and how they fit in the journey. Good stuff. #nrc #guidedrun #runningformylife
I'm calling today's speed workout my Milli Vanilli Run. I have to blame it on something...i "Blame It on The Rain." I couldn't get out much over the weekend, and then the HEAT & HUMIDITY today were AWFUL!!! I couldn't maintain pace nor distance past the first interval, and the wheels fell off totally. I cut my losses after completing only half the planned workout. - - #RunningForMyLife #instaRunner #RunnerDAD #running #runner #TrackIntervals #MarathonTraining #CancerSavedMyLife #HalfMarathoner #Marathoner #runningGSO #RecoveringRunner #RunnerRecovery #CityOfOaksMarathon #RunLessRunFaster #RunningAroundInCircles

New shoes since I can't find my size in any saucony brand :( Trying #asicsgelexcite4 They are comfy, its been YEARS since I wore Asics. I may try a short run in them later, defintantly not wearing them tomorrow for my #rainrun . #asics #womensrunning #runnergirl #runningformylife

35k steps by 1 pm (that’s equal to 17.56 miles if you’re wondering) thanks to the #sundayrunday action this morning! Today marks the longest mileage I’ve ever done completely solo and I enjoyed it so much more than I could’ve ever imagined. Something about having hours to myself and battling through all the negative thoughts of giving up when things started to feel a little uncomfortable has me feeling all sorts of badass right now. And by badass I mean I’m about to take a nap and have zero intentions of increasing those steps for the day. So if you need me, I’ll be on the couch and you better not need me for anything requiring movement! 😂😜 . . . #marathontraining #mcm2018 #runCIM #runwithpurpose #runwiththemarines #marathoner #running #sactownrunaround #brooks #brooksrunning #runhappy #yearofthecomeback #garmin #beatyesterday #cantstopwontstop #alldayeverday #comebackkid #ontherun #runningformylife #lifeofarunner #runnersbrain
It’s not how far you go, or how fast you go, sometimes it’s ENOUGH that you JUST KEEP GOING!! An incredibly influential reason I started running all those moons ago, wasn’t because I was unhappy with my weight, it was because I was unhappy with my mind. I’m not the fastest, nor does running flatter my brick shithouse figure, but it does make me content, and more in the game! #mentalhealthawareness #running #bopo #instarunner #amateurrunner #runningformymentalhealth #runningformylife #runningformysanity #runningsoicaneatcake #vegan #instavegan #vegansofig #veganrunner #plantpowered #eatcleanrunmean #whatfuckingdiet

Saturday nights = ALLLL the carbs to fuel my #sundayrunday 😋 Every training cycle I usually eat pretty much the same meal every night before long runs or races. This go around I’ve been OBSESSED with all things shrimp pasta and can’t get enough! For the first time in a few weeks, I’m actually really looking forward to tomorrow’s miles. In the meantime, I’m going to devour this goodness and a glass of wine because ya know, balance! 💁🏼‍♀️ . . . #marathontraining #mcm2018 #runCIM #runwithpurpose #runwiththemarines #marathoner #running #sactownrunaround #brooks #brooksrunning #runhappy #yearofthecomeback #garmin #beatyesterday #cantstopwontstop #alldayeverday #comebackkid #ontherun #runningformylife #lifeofarunner #runnersbrain
And some days you run 20 miles and feel pretty darn good! Started out with Tia and @mikemessex + I got to run some of those miles with @amberleyshaw 👊💪 and some of the women from the #nikewomensproject That was a wonderful unexpected surprise! My girl @kaydubbellyew helped me get the final 4 in. It’s days like today that remind you to #dowhatyoulove & #lovewhatyoudo 💪👊🙌 #thisisme #thisis51 #ucaninspire #ucan #runnersanddreamers #radrabbit #iamarunner #iamamarathoner #motherrunner #runlisarun #runhappy #igetbywithalittlehelpfrommyfriends #longrun #road2cim #bostonmarathon 💙💛 #dreambelieveachieve #everythingyouwantisinfrontofyou #runningformylife

Hardcore PMS crying for no reason and stuffing my face with fat and not getting enough sleep and negative self talk and feelings of hopelessness of all my dreams. ... Yes. ... It happens to me too. ... And the longer it takes for my period to come the worse it gets. ... Fortunately I’m in a place now where I can recognize what’s happening. ... Like a scary movie when the main character looks the monster in the eyes and says “you have no power over me. You’re not real.” ... And I have tools to cope. ... This is when self care and self love rituals come in most handy. ... Today I don’t run for the thrill or for the fitness. ... I run for the headspace and for the relief. ... Running is one of my most powerful go tos for pretty much anything. ... I have the rest of the day with my girls as the boys are off the city until late night. ... So I’ll spend the day showing my girls what it means to take care of ourselves, to breathe, to live slow, to love deeply. ... But for now: running with music. ... First on my playlist, the song I already had in my head: I Am Here by P¡nk. ... I was literally singing the words in my head before I hit shuffle and it came on. ... Coincidence? I think not. ...

HURRICANE FLO still lingering in the Carolinas, so NO outdoor long run for me today. Instead I cranked up the treadmill and managed an 18 mile indoor run @ 10:20/mile in 3:06:27. Prior to today my longest treadmill run was around 6 miles. Many thanks to being able to binge watch Jack Ryan for helping me stomach 3 hours of monotonous running. WHEW!! Oh! And I created my own flooding from the pools of sweat around my treadmill. - - - #RunningForMyLife #RunningHills #instaRunner #RunnerDAD #running #runner #GARMINvivoactive #training #MarathonTraining #CancerSavedMyLife #RunningForMyHealth #HealthyLifestyle #LosingTheDadBod #DadBod #HalfMarathoner #Marathoner #runningGSO #NewBalanceVongo #FreshFoamVongo #stingorbeestung #hshive #RecoveringRunner #RunnerRecovery #CityOfOaksMarathon
Det er Fredagskveld, det uler utenfor & vi har enorme nedbørsmengder..💦🌪...da smakte det ekstra godt å rekke #6km løping i motvind, mens helgbaksten hevet.

#fuelfriday tip! I used my new #genucan 🍉 hydrate on #workoutwednesday ... This is my absolute favorite #ucanhydrate flavor! It was refreshing but not tart. I was pushing hard and sweating harder and never felt depleted. It contains 5 🖐 essential electrolytes including double ✌️ magnesium to prevent cramping and 🚫 no sugar!!! Seriously if your looking for hydration that’s light but refreshing, this is it. Oh and if you love watermelon 🍉 you are gonna love this!

New 5K PR! This is especially exciting since my previous PR was set while running on a treadmill. Doing a street run and beating that previous time is so rewarding. Now I just need to do the same for my 10K time 😁 #newpr #streetrunning #new5kpr #pr #5kpr #run #running #runforfun #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #runningformyhealth #runningformylife #spartanintraining #spartantraining #roadtotahoe #beastbound #trifectabound #trifectagoals #spartan #spartanstrong #arooarooaroo #aroo #star #staridaho #idaho #idahome #idahobo #whatgetsyououtdoors @marialsims

I had a mental break through at #workoutwednesday last night. It was not a terribly painful workout in comparison to coach’s hill tempo workouts 🤪. Last night we had #milerepeats ....I have been struggling a bit emotionally lately. Like I said in another post, I am revisiting this time last year when things were at their very worst. I had a break through Tuesday after a bodywork session...I voiced that I have been wanting to let go of resentment and to trust again, but what had never occurred to me was the resentment I was holding towards myself for allowing myself to live the way I had for so long and the trust I needed to find again is trusting in myself. This left me depleted of everything. It was like I had let so much pain out that all I could do was sleep...So Wednesday I woke up and felt like I had when he left 10 months ago...I went for a very short weak run and wondered how I would get my Wednesday night workout done. As the day went on, I started to feel stronger and better...I knew the workout, I just did not know if my head would get in my way. I was dreading the idea of failing a workout...I reminded myself of that quote: “what would you attempt to do if you knew you couldn’t fail?” I thought “run a sub 3!” “And this workout is a step in that direction!” The first mile is clockwise and my mind struggles that way because it’s more uphill and we run into the dark where I can’t see the end till just before we get there. I want to quit on every mile in that direction. It takes so much focus to stick with Mayra . After the first mile I said to @born2run87 “ I don’t feel great.” Mayra turned to me and said “it doesn’t matter if we hit our times, effort is effort, we are doing this together.” Huge help!Every clockwise mile I focused on “this is gonna make your mind stronger, get comfortable being uncomfortable.” The last clockwise mile I pulled up alongside Mayra and focused on the mental challenge more than the struggle. I told myself to trust myself, my dream and my goal, it’s not crazy, and this mile is one mile closer. That was my fastest! Change is coming. I’m here, with my crazy dreams till they aren’t crazy anymore! #dreambelieveachieve
Let’s see how long I can stay outside before it starts raining😏#rainingeveryday #morningdevotions #enjoyinglife #blessed #savedforlife #runningformylife #itsallgood #revelations
Short off road run after the school drop off this AM - haven’t done much in my new Inov8s yet, but they felt pretty good, today. Autumn is definitely in the air!

A last minute half marathon never hurt nobody. See you all on Sunday!!!
Week 2 - Day 2- Cardio on tuesday. I didn't feel motivated at all until the last minute ( almost waited too long before the sun sets. But once I hit the road I felt amazing, I unfortunately went out way to fast and couldn't keep it up and wanted to run for 45 minutes but not getting there yet. My right calf became really stiff which caused a spasm in my right foot/toes again and I didn't want to push myself further. Every run is different but I can feel myself getting stronger and endurance level increasing. Any tips for really painful calves? I am wearing my lovely @falke_sa compression socks. . . . . . #weekendvibes #weekendworkout #fitgoals #energy #strongnotskinny #wellness #fitnessjourney #bbg #fitness #workout #healthybodyandmind #activeliving #flexibility #summertoneup #soretodaystrongtomorrow #fitnesstip #newme #fitjourney #healthylifestyle #mindbodysoul #runningformylife #fitbodyfitmind #trailrunninggoals #optoutside 🌲 #runstrong #summerready #summertoneup #summerrunning
You never know who you are inspiring. So thankful for the ability to wake up today pain free and energized to go the distance. And to the little girl that looked at me like I was a a superhero as I ran past her and her mama, she was my superhero for giving me that energy in my last mile. #livingmybestlife #disneyprincesshalfmarathon2019 #firsthalfmarathonintraining #runningformylife #anxietywarrior #blessed 🙏
There's a hurricane coming, and I had a soggy wet rainy finish to my run...but I got in a TEMPO 10K this morning in my new NB Vongo v2s. 1mi EZ, 4mi tempo, 1.25mi EZ. This was probably my fastest 10k all year, and I'm feeling like the tendinitis is "nearly" behind me for runs up to this distance. WooHoo!! (Now to hunker down for Florence) - - #RunningForMyLife #instaRunner #RunnerDAD #running #runner #TrackIntervals #MarathonTraining #CancerSavedMyLife #HalfMarathoner #Marathoner #runningGSO #RecoveringRunner #RunnerRecovery #CityOfOaksMarathon #RunLessRunFaster #VongoV2
Afternoon 🏃‍♀️ in the ☀️ which was 😃... 3 miles of climbing followed by a few downhill. Just what I needed, thanks to Grandma K for making slime with Tills whilst we had an hour’s Running freedom 😊🙌👍😘#runningformylife #thursdaymotivation #thursdayrun #runninglife #afterworkrun #runningisfreedom #stravawanker #dowhatyoulove #hellosunshine #ukrunchat #thanksgrandma #freshairtherapy #needabeer 🍺
When we are strong in the Lord we are unstoppable. We cannot rely on our own strength instead must rely on his. I believe God gives us more than we can handle at times so that we will lean on him more than ourselves. If it was something we could handle we wouldn't need him. #blessed #overcomer #TRLTW #runningformylife #runrangerrun #begallant #trusthim #grit #fitcat #gratitude
Very gentle 5K this evening with my dad 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻‍♂️ and then a little interval session afterwards too.
