Sunday Well Spent – Meal Prep

Mmmm, meal prep is a touch more palatable when it’s dreary out… it’s easier to do when it’s not cutting into pool/beach/summer activities, I’m just saying…

Feels good to set myself up for a successful week as we enter week 2 of this new program!

What are you doing today?

Sunday Runday – New Record!

10 miles.

That’s what I logged in a 7 day span.

That’s not double my previous weekly stat. And it’s not even triple. It’s MORE than triple!

Does that deserve a golf clap? EFF NO, that deserves a full on clap, and I’m super proud of myself (especially doing it in this dang heat!)

Set goals. Put your mind to it. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. And then just do it – no overthinking, no doubting… just. do. it.

(My graphic is split because Map My Run starts the week on a Sunday whereas Kara starts the week on a Monday!)

What’s the most you have run in one week?

 

Sunday Runday – Day 1 of Summer 2018 Challenge!

Y’all know I love to challenge myself, and I do best when my goals are clearly laid out…

Summer 2018 Challenge is… 175 miles!

Worth noting that 2 years ago, I would have seen ‘175 miles’ and basically said “fuck that, no way”….

And 1 year ago I would have seen the number and given it some consideration (and overanalyzed it) and maybe done it, maybe opted not to.

Now? I am like shit, yeah! SIGN ME UP!

Do I think I will RUN 175 miles over the next 2 months? No, but the beauty is that you can walk, or bike (3 biked miles = 1 tracker mile for this) and I KNOW I can do that – it breaks down to 2.5 miles per day – I can totally do that!

So, since today is day 1 of the 2018 Summer Challenge, I ran. I didn’t run super fast, I didn’t run super far, but I ran; I got myself on the board.

I can do hard things. YOU can do hard things.

Still time to join me and some friends who are doing it!

On the board!
You in?

Sunday Runday!

Sundaaaaay Rundaaaay!

So this morning was my first run/5k since November, and post-80 Day Obsession/Ultimate Reset.

All my runner friends who did 80DO said the program helped their endurance/stamina and so I was hopeful but also skeptical (I’ve gotten my hopes up ENOUGH this week only to have ‘em dashed down, haha)

Well, here we are… having shaved 1:19 off my average pace, I’d say 80 Day Obsession helped MY endurance too!

And FUCK YEAH I’m stoked about THESE numbers! My first 5k I averaged over 11 minutes! (And today’s run was with a sore arch from the yellow jacket sting, too!)

Cheers to always improving!

Sunday Runday!

Sunday Rundaaaaay!

Coldest weather I’ve ever gone running in – you would think the 26 degree weather would speed my pace up, but nope, still huggin’ 10 minute miles.

I AM still proud I got out there and did something – it took a LOT of self pep-talking! I much prefer the temps of spring/warm fall, but it makes me happy to know I CAN run in cooler temps.
