Training Day 11 #halfmarathon!!! #stopthebeautymadness

Standard

7/10/14

Hey guys,

Today’s run absolutely sucked. My calves are killing me. They cramped so bad that I had to stop my run and I even stretched before I left. If you know what I can do about that in the future, please leave me a comment. I can’t keep running if they continue hurting.

Today, I thought I’d share with you an amazing beauty campaign that is spreading true messages about the beauty industry. It’s called Stop the Beauty MadnessI find it truly sad that women have a very false sense of what beauty is. I really think that women  and everyone really should look inside themselves for the definition of beauty.

I’d like to leave you with one more message about beauty. It’s a documentary entitled The Little Things and it’s by one of my favorite YouTubers Mallory Shomaker. Please take a minute to watch below.

Training Day 10 #halfmarathon!!!

Hey guys,
Confession: yesterday’s post was written at about 2 am yesterday morning. I’ve been forgetting to do it.

Anyways, I didn’t workout yesterday and I will today. I think it’ll be a quick run but I’ll be sure to find time to tell you.

Training Day 9 #halfmarathon!!!

7/8/14

Hey guys,

Sorry I didn’t write yesterday. I don’t really have an excuse. Monday, I had rapier practice which was a lot of fun and was totally a great workout. My body is so sore as I write this.

Today, I had a long day of training and I didn’t train. I really need to get back on the metaphorical horse and kick some butt.

Training Day 6 #halfmarathon!!!

Standard

7/5/14

Hey guys,

Sorry I missed posting for you this morning. That’s pretty horrible.

Anyways, today I went for a bike ride with my mother. She took me through this crazy route in my neighborhood. I think it’ll be a fun one to go running on later in my training. I’m pretty sore, but it’s a lot less than it was a few days ago.

Tomorrow, I’m going to my first fighter practice of the summer. I’m pretty excited.

No Training Today!!! Instead a Video from @Rx_Pixel!!!

7/3/14

Hey guys,

Today, I took the day off because I woke up feeling like crap, both my muscle and sickness wise.  I think that it was a good move since I was in a lot pain. I will be running.

Instead, I wanted to share with you a video on sexism from one of my favorite YouTubers, Prescription Pixel. It’s a long one, but it’s totally worth watching. Watch it below.

She breaks down the comments she receives in to categories. It is really eye opening.

Jen, if you happen to see this, I wanted you to know that this video really opened my mind. As a female content creator, hearing your thoughts have equipped me with the knowledge and skills to deal with it in a healthy way. I cannot thank you enough.

So let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below. Please keep the comment section civil.

Training Day 2 #halfmarathon!!!

7/1/14

Hey guys,
Today’s training sucks. I’m laying in bed as I’m writing this and my butt is killing me. I’m happy to announce that it got to be an outdoor ride, which I enjoy much more.

Tomorrow is another 2 mile run. I’m pretty excited to keep at this.
