Sting or Bee Stung!

I am proud to announce I am a part of the Honey Stinger family for 2016! It is great to be a part of something you love! 

I struggle with sports nutrition because I am picky and my stomach is even pickier! Honey Stinger is delicious! It is made from all natural products! AND it is easy on the stomach! 

I love all their waffles, but if I had to pick a favorite caramel would be it! Chocolate is a close second though! I eat these for breakfast, pre workout, post work out, and as a treat!

And because they are made from all natural products they are great for the whole family!! I use the chews out on my runs and my four boys have their very own they use for their runs! 

So there you have it! My favorite nutrition for before, during, and after workouts! And I am how lucky am I to "bee" a member of the Honey Stinger hive! Sting or Bee Stung!!

Running Post Fibula Stress Fracture

A minor setback paves the way for a major comeback!
I ran my one mile trial mile (Zone 2 - 8:23 pace) to test out my leg after almost 6 weeks of no running. It felt amazing to be running! There was some nagging pain towards the end of the mile, but I should have run at a slower pace. It was hard not getting carried away!
"She was unstoppable not because she didn't have failures or doubts but because she continued on despite them." Reunited and it feels so good! I'm not running fast and I'm not running far! But I am running, and I am free!

So very thankful for this body I am given and everything it does for me!
My first brick in months = 1 hour on the bike + 15 minute easy run. It was glorious! 

"Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up."
Coming back from injury I am only running for 15 minutes and my pace is 2 minutes per mile slower than before, but I am running and I couldn't be happier!

The treadmill is working well for my short easy runs!

But I love to get out to run as much as I can! "When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breath, to think, to enjoy, to love." TO RUN!!!

I am focusing on just running. I'm not worrying about pace, nor speed work, but just being able to run! Making my comeback baby!!

My Journey to a Handstand

What's up? My legs that's what!! Well, kind of! Lol! This is my 1st attempt at a handstand! Haha! I have a long way to go!! I love stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new things....even if that means looking like a fool!
My IG friend Amanda (aka fitnfulfilled) has created a challenge to help me achieve an actual handstand! I'm so excited to try! 
If you too want to learn she started a group for us to follow the challenge.
I will be taking pictures throughout the challenge so you can see my progress! Fingers crossed I don't break anything! 😁
