Let's Be Fit Friends

I'm a girl who's trying to be strong, fast and look good in a bikini. Experimenting with diet and exercise prevents boredom and love-handles. KJMcAwesome is my partner in crime.

Got my pull up on film! This was my second one this morning so a little slower (and a tiny bit of kipping) but I’m happy with it!!

I did one unassisted pull up today! And my first attempt was 99% of an unassisted pull up. So yay!!

Dog photo bomb while working on my pull ups this weekend

I still exercise, I swear! Spin 1-2x per week, training with Marc 2x/week and I’ve added a TRX class once a week. Unfortunately I haven’t taken photos so here’s one of my new white (grey? purple?) hair.

I was not feeling very confident about this marathon. I burned out about 3 weeks ago and my long runs before that had been mediocre.
On the advice of my trainer, I decided to just worry about a finish, not a sub 4 so I didn’t wear my garmin watch. I ran by feel at a comfortable pace and just tried my best.
Turns out, the training miles I put in really counted! This is the most I’ve ever trained for a marathon (I know I know, I under train) but I PR-ed by 5 minutes! I’m sore but not broken and felt happy and strong for most of the race. What a great day!
And extra congrats to robbsrunning for running that sh*t twice!! I kept an eye out for you & was thinking about you all race! You’re a rockstar!!

Race day tomorrow. I’m betting you didn’t know Under Armour made sports thongs.

Green magic chia got me through arms day!

Aww, thanks guys :D  I’m just not used to looking so..thick. But with great strength comes beefy thighs & arms I suppose.

Morning hike with the dogger in my hillbilly nerd costume aka pajamas (the cleaners showed up early so I got outta their way).
Afternoon short run which should have felt easier than it did. Yesterday was legs day so a bit stiff.

Sundays 10k trail run. Looks like I could stand to lose a few lbs. :/

10k trail race day at Huddart Park in Woodside. kjmcawesome got 1st overall and I landed 7th for the ladies!

I did tough mudder in upstate New York last Saturday! I spent a week in NY and am finally home and getting back in the groove. Back to back PT yesterday and today. Running this afternoon.

Sometimes I say fuck everything and I wear a half shirt and be all strong and shit…in a bathroom

Jude wants to hang with me on the surfboard

Today I woke up with epic bed head, I did arms day at the gym then pool surfed with Jude. If kjmcawesome stops being lame, I’d like to see some fireworks (he’s napping).
