So sorry I’ve been absent. Life has been crazy and as a healthcare worker there is no quarantine option. I pray that you are all safe and sound.
Ooof…this getting in shape while battling menopause is no joke. With the help of my hubby, we’ve added weights to my workouts with a goal of 3x per week. 3 sets each (various weights from 10-40 lbs) of Shoulder press, lat raises, tricep pull downs, and weighted rows. Add in my 3.5 mile run and a short plank, and this girl is pooped. No one said this was going to be easy!! Who’s with me???
Thanks for all of the encouragement, y’all!! I felt so good in the beginning of this run that I got a little over zealous. Thankfully my husband slowed down to run with me, so between that-and all of YOUR awesome support, I finished this 5k feeling great!! Figured a five minute plank would pair perfectly. How was your day?
So our power went out today. Smallish storm knocked out a transformer. Thankfully I got my run in, and I planked by candlelight. Gotta make the best of it, right?
How do you make lemonade out of lemons? Ever have to break up your runs?
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend. It’s been a year since I’ve done a half marathon and 5 years since I’ve done a full…but this quote was always something that hit home with me so I wanted to share it! Cheers and good luck!!
What’s your favorite distance to run? Are you racing this weekend?
One thing I’ll say about Florida, is that the weather here has really slowed me down. When it’s humid like it was today, I find myself taking a lot more walk breaks than I ever would. But as I found myself getting frustrated, I reminded myself that so many can’t even run a single mile anymore, and that I should be thankful for each step I take. So my new thought process is, “I no longer care about the pace I run, as long as I’m getting it done.” I’ll forever be thankful for the supplements I take, Novo Renew, that have afforded me the ability to keep moving.

Good thing for you Gasparilla runners this weekend:we’ve got a cold front coming through this weekend!!! Let me know if you’re running!!! I’ll cheer you on!
Are you currently training for anything? What is your favorite distance to run? Do you notice yourself slowing down as you age (or is it just me, haha!)?
