Il passo del bradipo..... 30 gradi e percepiti millemila.... correre alle 16.30 non è stata una brillante idea ma d’altronde si deve incastrare tutto.... molla la nana a pattinaggio e parti a correre, torna, prendila e scappa in doccia😂🤦🏼♀️👧 #runnergirl#runtoinspire#workout#caldonevuoi
Some pictures from Sunday.
This last year has been so challenging for me. It's been worth it ! You realise your own strenght then to carry on... Running for world peace
Two verses have been on my heart this week. They really go hand in hand to show the amazing power of our almighty God. “May the Lord increase you a thousand times and bless you as he has promised!” - Deuteronomy 1:11
“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain ,’move from here to there’, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” - Matthew 17:20
I have heard both verses several times in different context this week. But they remind me that as long as everything I do is for God, even in the tiniest way, that He will bless me and provide for me abundantly. And that’s a great feeling!!! The cool autumn air on my run this morning was also a great feeling!! As was the company of one of my fav people @lovemysabre 😁❤️🏃♀️🏃🏻♀️ 🍂. #runnersofinstagram#michiganrunner#halfmarathontraining
I’ve been feeling super guilty the last few days because I haven’t had much time to get in any running. I have other obligations for my sorority this week that sadly run for about 12 hours a day but I’m trying to look at it as a nice break before jumping into my first marathon training cycle. I’m trying to stay positive about it but I do apologize for my absence from Instagram.

☀️Wednesday! You’re halfway through the week!
☀️Lately I’ve been feeling generally weak and behind on my fitness goals. Since coming to college, I’ve maintained my active lifestyle but it doesn’t quite stack up to the rigorous workouts I could do at home.
☀️With running specifically, my paces have been slower and I’ve kept up my distance, but it hasn’t been an easy effort.
☀️The St. Louis heat hasn’t helped either, because today is going to be a record high!! (Stay hydrated my friends!!) the heat has given me a new challenge on top of keeping up my pace.
☀️Because of all of these factors, I’ve been upset with my workouts and fitness level lately. I am open about this because I want you to know that it’s okay to have bad days or weeks.
☀️Not every workout is going to be an A+. But if you continue to push at it, you’ll get back there eventually. That’s what I’m doing right now. Accepting lower results knowing that taking a step back will allow me to build up my strength.
☀️So for now, I’m happy where I am. I might have regressed slightly but I’m determined not to let myself regress any further and go forward from there.
☀️Health and fitness are a huge part of my life, but I don’t let it overtake my life. If I have to skip a workout to spend meaningful time with a friend, I will.
☀️Have a great Wednesday!!
I tweaked my upper back when I was lifting today...that’s what happens when I don’t work out on the regular. It’s been so difficult for me to get back on my game. I forced myself to go this morning and am really glad I did because as soon as I began I felt at peace. .
I know once I’m in a good routine these upper back/neck issues will be less and less, I just got to get there is all. So tomorrow I will try again, and yes the poundage is light but I have to start somewhere. I have let myself go for far too long, all the aches and pains are exacerbated by inertia. Hopefully a good nights rest and an anti inflammatory will do the trick. I have to focus on how it’s gonna be and work through this rut. I seriously will not allow myself to get this far out of shape again, it’s a humbling rough trek on the glide path back, all I have to do is put myself and my health first. I’ll get there and it’s gonna be great ❤️
