🏃🏻♀️ T H O U G H T S O N T H U R S D A Y : M Y V E R Y F I R S T R U N 🏃🏻♀️Last night I went *for a run* with my sister-in-law @dezra18. Whilst we were away last week, we just sort of decided it was time and we talked about it so much, by the time I arrived back in London 🛬, I felt like I'd already run the London, Paris and Boston marathons, twice over 🏅🏆🏃🏻♀️. But last night marked our first *actual* run. You know, the kind where you actually have to physically *move*, as opposed to just chat about it 😉🙈. And actually, it was a lot of fun. I am not especially physically fit (understatement of the YEAR) and I didn't find it easy (if you saw me, you'd probably chuckle at the fact that I'm even calling it a run 🤣) but it felt *really* good. I'm using the Couch to 5K app (by *using*, I mean I've used it this one time) and it's pretty helpful for a novice like yours truly -- though I do think the title is a tad misleading as surely the first sesh should have required at least *some* time sitting on said couch 🤔. In all seriousness though, I'm already kind of hoping that one day I'll be that person who just *needs* to go for a run as opposed to the one who just *needs* to watch The Real Housewives of Who Flippin Knows Where 📺. But one step at a time, eh ✨! PS: I felt my whole attitude to the run was boosted by my iPhone holder-armband 📱, which made me feel like I sort of *looked* like I could do it (obviously primed it -- and one for my sil too). But that's the beauty of running -- provided you have two decently functioning legs, you really can sort of do it! 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️#runlikethewind#orrunlikethewinded#firsttimerunner#runnersofinstagram#todayiprimed#todayiran#runforrestrun
A bit of redemption as I see it. I did a relatively flat loop of 5 800s. I haven’t done intervals like that in close to two months so I’m pretty happy with the pace. It was hard but I didn’t struggle mentally at all which felt amazing!
4 easy recovery miles 🏃🏻♀️& onto a 60 minute massage!!🙌🏼🙌🏼 Even though I foam roll, do yoga, and stretch, I still add massages into my pre and post recovery plan! I have found a local massage business in my area—beats the heck out of chain massage prices and I’m supporting local business 👍🏻👍🏻 it’s a win-win!!!
They see us rollin, they hatin. Patrolling they tryin catch us ridin dirty! 😜 Throwing it back to having fun at @tannersorchard with my two favorite goofy guys. Not going to lie when you’re crouching down in that little tunnel you feel like you’re moving way faster than we were! 😂❤️ #runlikethewind @brett.rutherford
