Final 22 miler completed, let the tapering begin! Prepared for thunderstorms and ended up getting sunburn and that pretty much sums up what Marathon training is like in Tennessee during the winter 😅
‘March into pain and love with eyes and heart wide open. Stand in the wreckage and believe that your power, your love, your light are stronger than the darkness’ @glennondoyle • We have to believe in order to keep moving forward. Whatever darkness you may be experiencing, know it is teaching you a lesson and let it break you open... it’s creating space for something new. Keep marching forward love warriors. Have a beautiful Saturday. ❤️ | #lovewarrior #love #believe #heartopen #grateful

BIRTHDAY 5K ✌🏻 to the decade you officially no longer give a fuck. Where you know who you are and what you want and you’re no longer afraid to speak your mind. To the decade that’s still youthful but wiser, calculated but full of adventure, where you leave behind the failures in your twenties but don’t forget what you learnt. To another 10 years of pushing limits, loving hard and crushing goals.

FITNESS: I have a massive passion for going to the gym - it’s my ‘meditation’ time. Time for myself, to clear my thoughts and relax my mind. 🙇🏼‍♀️ There are definitely days where my motivation drops and it’s harder to get to the gym but usually, it’s my favourite place to go 💪
____
.
I have playing around with different exercise routines from the Kayla Itsines BBG to heavy weights to yoga and then just plan old cardio. 🤸🏼‍♀️ I have finally found what works best for me and I will releasing my weekly exercise program with you all soon but just remember, what works for one may not work for all! 🙊🏋🏼‍♀️

Going back to basics, some key things that I do are: Exercising at least 5 times a week, Eating healthily but also allowing myself to have a treat whenever I feel like it, Ensuring I drink a protein shake at least once a day, Pushing myself to the limit in every session 👊🏻

I’m working on my pull ups again! This is set 4 of 3 reps. Don’t mind my struggle in the last pull 🙃 The struggle is how you get stronger! 💪🏽 I take a full rest in between sets so my muscles are recovered enough to get my body above the bar again!



These are not traditional pull-ups. I have a close grip and I actually would be completely supinated (hand grip towards my face) if this bar was straight across. The extra bicep help is needed at this stage of my pull up progression. 💪🏽💪🏽
This Wednesday! Join the incredible @_waddywad for a 90’s themed flow~
February 28th at 9pm, come sweat it out on your mats and vibe!
Regular class rates and packages apply! 🌟

⚡️#18.1 prep, strategy, and recovery⚡️ Last night I completed @crossfitgames #Open workout 18.1 @crossfitsantacruz. Here are a few things I did before, during, and after the workout to feel like a functional human today.
Before:
1. Soft tissue, joint mobility, and activation of the overhead position. In that order. You literally can’t do enough of this to prepare for the workout.
2. Get hot and sweaty. Spend at least 10 minutes priming your nervous system for the stimulus of a 20 minute workout.
3. Prep the movements without overdoing it. I spent extra time warming up to the dumbbell weight because it was heavy for me.
During:
1. Breathe. I know it sounds simple, but this workout will gas you. Take a few deep breaths before you start moving and anytime you get overwhelmed during the workout. Try to breathe on the rower, in between sets of toes to bar, and to maintain tension in your back on the dumbbell movements.
2. Find a steady, “push” pace during the workout and go hard at the very end. Those last two minutes should completely empty the tank.
3. As @suppleleopard would say, “Don’t burn down the house while making toast.” Be clear about your priorities. If you don’t care about going to Regionals, then don’t destroy yourself during this workout. It’s not worth it to take a week off because you f-ed up your shoulder and tore your hand if you’re not going for the podium.

After:
1. COOL DOWN - (what I did) five minutes on the bike as a slow pace, ten minutes of t-spine and shoulder soft tissue work with a lax ball on the ground and against the wall, two minutes of reclined twist with foam roller (see my video from the other day).
2. Hydrate. Drink lots of water and turmeric tea if you have it.
3. Eat a balanced meal. I had a “rice” bowl with cauliflower and broccoli rice, kale, peppers, ground turkey, and coconut aminos.
4. Sleep. A lot. More than 8 hours.
5. Do something active, but not crazy the next day. Move your body without stressing your nervous system. I just took a West African Dance class which was absolutely perfect. Uplifting, fun, fluid movement at a relative high intensity with live music and no load.

5.5 road miles with @jamiekingfit @rbish and @abbiethevizsla , a butt-kicking bootcamp with @rbish and @tashasdish , and then the sweat continued with PV with @jamiekingfit . Being tackled by 8-week-old #WinnieTheVizsla was the best way to end a sweaty, fun Saturday morning with the squad.
Find your limit. Be ok being uncomfortable. Break yourself down to build back up even stronger. Challenge yourself to grow because then you’re truly living 🙌🏼 #studiox28 #studioxfitness #lululemon #thesweatlife #strengthtraining #fitness #tattoos #pdx 📷: @hallie_tobias
