Wishing you lots of love and fun during the rest of the holiday season. xo
Happiness Is Running Life!
The workout ➡ 2 mile warm up, then 4 x 1 mile (paces of 7:00-7:10 with .25 rest), 1 mile cool down. The tough reality was my legs felt like total lead and I was on the struggle bus today. 😛 But you know what? I didn't give up... 7:15, 7:18, 7:12, 7:18 Bummed that I didn't hit my paces, but I pulled out all the stops to will myself to run fast. I'm talking all about that on the blog right now (link in profile). #marathontraining #run #running #bostonmarathon #motherrunner #runitfast #instarunners #marathonrunner

The workout ➡ 4 miles easy and then a 2 mile tempo (goal paces: 7:45-8:00) comfortably quick. First mile (slight uphill incline) was 7:28, second mile was 7:22. I have been feeling tired all week, so really happy with this. 6 miles total for today and chipping away at getting fitter!! 2 things: 1. I am so excited to be a guest on my sweet friend @thismamarunsforcupcakes blog today!! I am talking about how to qualify for Boston, so be sure to go check it out!! 2. A huge congrats to @brandibarn for winning my giveaway of a new pair of running shoes!!! Woo hoo!!! Happy running Brandi! 👏🙌🏃 #run #running #marathontraining
That feeling when you wake up in the morning after a late, fun night + 2 glasses of wine and a flute of champagne (thank you all for the birthday wishes!!). The feeling you have when you realize you have a hard workout on the schedule... The workout: 2 mile warm up, 6 x 1/2 mile (7:15-7:30 pace) with 1/4 mile jog, 1.5 mile cooldown. I did 15 minutes of dynamic stretching mostly to mentally prepare. The actual paces ➡7:14, 7:10, 6:56, 6:59, 7:28, 7:18. I am used to doing 800 meter repeats on the track and it was nice to be on road and trail. Some slight uphill and my lungs were burning, but I have to slowly get ready for those Boston hills, right?! 😅 I have enjoyed these last 11 weeks of conditioning and prep to get ready for real marathon training soon. Also, I am loving my new @momentumjewelry wrap with an awesome mantra by @tinamuir88!!! Be Brave. Be Strong. Be You!! Lastly ➡ The giveaway to win a brand new pair of running shoes is going on until 12/8! Good luck!!!! #run #running #runnersofinstagram #marathonrunner #marathontraining #boston2016 #motherrunnerA photo posted by Natalie (@natrunsfar) on
