A lot of times I run mindlessly. What I mean by that is I find myself thinking about work or life or something random or nothing at all when I run. I’m not thinking about my run or my running form. Today I focused on thinking about my form, my breathing and my run in general. I think this is particularly important when you are tired or just not really feeling it. I struggled getting out of bed this morning but my run was great. Focus on your form. How’s your breathing? Do you have that forward lean into your run? Think about it. You just might crush it.
20 hrs and 2 flights later we made it to Calpe, Spain. 🇪🇸 Slept a ton, then shook off the jet-lag by checking out Calpe from Peñón de Ifach (a giant rock!) For me this is also kicking off a mini ‘break from running,’ and some time for ‘beaches, hikes & bikes.’ I’ve been happy to avoid any serious injuries this year, having raced a fair bit. But I think a physical and mental break from it, before hopefully doing some more racing in the fall is a good idea. 🌴☀️ . #calpe#spain#vacay#lfac#jetlag
Because somehow it sounds just a little more bada$$ to say you just ran 47,731 feet rather than just saying 9 miles. 😂 This edition of #sundayrunday is dedicated to all my runner friends who are currently battling an injury, or just making their way back from one. Stay strong, I know how hard it is mentally to not be able to do something you love so much. But the roads or trails will be waiting for you whenever you’re ready! 💕
