Just dropping this gym selfie to share that my training session ended with some Fugazi. It kind of made my day. Deadlifts, presses, sled pushes AND pulls today with Jesse. Three workouts in since Friday which is the most in months. Gettin back to it! Now off to do my taxes... 😩
Left in sunshine, hit the trail in rain. Forgot my HRM and belt so I did my normal loop backwards and ran harder than I typically do because when things are off, you just have to go with them! Been finishing my runs hitting this little hill that leaves me winded. Sun was back out by the time I finished. Not a bad little Sunday run. ☀️🏃♀️
Spring has sprung! And I unintentionally matched the wildflowers this afternoon. I haven’t gotten in much running as of late. Was in NYC all last week and allergies rendered me useless the week before. Ready to get back to it! ☀️🏃♀️✨
Some more shots from our snowy Gorge hike that did out by Multnomah Falls a few weeks ago. Can’t wait to try this again when it’s not covered in so much snow and Spring growth is happening. One of my favorite things about trail running and hiking is watching the seasons evolve on the trail. The first tiny buds that emerge and turn into leaves and flowers then cover the branches so densely they start to block out the light then watching them change color and fall to the ground eventually leaving the trees bare and being covered by snow. It’s beautiful.
Multnomah Falls. This was almost two weeks ago. I haven’t “worked out” since. I have been working on a project at work that I’m super passionate about, started painting again including starting a 4 week painting class, been studying my butt off for a certification exam next Tuesday, read a book, and spent more time with friends than I have probably since I moved here. Do I miss fitness? Yes. Do I feel guilty? No. I’m not training for anything right now and doing things that make my heart happy like hanging with people I love, creating, and doing valuable work is super important to me. It’s good to have layers. I AM an athlete, but I’m not ONLY an athlete. . What are you passionate about outside of fitness? I’d love to learn about your layers!
Got a few runs in this week. Really struggling with where my fitness is right now. I feel like I am starting over. But I know in a a few things will start feel better. Getting running, strength training, and logging my food is making me feel more settled in here. Really excited for Spring and Summer!
