much needed day of rest after our Saturday workouts

Side Note: I've touched upon the fact that I am just NOT a runner and I'm constantly working to keep my legs pain free. However, you'll notice that last week was a bit heavy on the running. Well...jogging, really. I wouldn't consider my pace a "runner" haha
My boyfriend on the other hand, is a runner and can easily go bang out 10+ miles. (shoot me)
I volunteered myself for an outdoor run/walk that turned into 7 miles around the city on Saturday. Mind you, this was after 90 minutes of hot Yoga Fusion where we already did I don't know how many squats, lunges, burpee's, push ups, all that fun stuff...

I am always setting new fitness goals for myself (and you should, too) in order to keep challenging and changing my body.

My current little goal I've set for myself, 3 x 3 x 3...
Run/Jog 3 miles | 3 x a week | 3 minute intervals with 1 minute walk in between. I've done this for the last 2 weeks, its what feels good to me, serves my body and seems to be working well. 

With all that being said, we did another 3 on Saturday + walked 4. I am a treadmill person, not an outdoor worker-outer. Running on the treadmill is nowhere even close to running outside.
Needless to say, the run murdered my legs - shins, calves, hip flexors and TFL's - I have been cozied up to foam roller and using The Stick today :(

Post-Run Stretch. I can't even describe how ahhhmazing this felt. 

Fitness lesson of the day? Listen to your body and don't over do it. xx

Much Love,
