How I feel running again after my break...😬 Crazy how after only 10 days of no running my body seems to forgot what it knows how to do best! Ouchy- my muscles are screaming at me! Gonna be a slow journey back to fitness- gotta be Patient! #easebackin #slowandsteady #patience #womensrunning

It’s been 11 months & 18 races since my last break from running. IM TIRED! Incredibly grateful for an entire year injury free🙌 - & being able to choose a break from running- not forced to have it. I’m taking 2 full weeks of NO RUNNING. It’s going to be hard - I LOVE RUNNING! But I know my body & mind need to rest. As I always say - recovery is key! I’ll stay active of course- biking, swimming, hiking, yoga- but only when & if I feel like it:) time to enjoy the sunshine with my family & friends ☀️🍦🍹🍷 Photo credit- @maxgravina #restthebodyandmind #holidays #recoveryiskey #womensrunning #restup

800s are hard! 2 laps full speed ahead! 2:10.87 for a 3 second PB set back in 1999!🙀 Nothing special as far as 800s go but for this 10k lady- I’m happy! Was gonna end my season last week after the Jerome but decided to have a lil fun last night at the Oceans Athletics meet which is my home track:) always good to close out your season with a PB! Thx @runningintoyoga for the video & cheers!❤️🏃🏼‍♀️⭐️ #800sarehard #oceanselite #justdoit

Ready to end my season tonight with some FUN! Racing an 800 & 400m! Haven’t raced a 400 since high school! Alan Bolt & I are going head to head. Who’s gonna win?? Can I run under 61?? What do you guys think??? #oceansathletics

Still not quite sure how I feel about my 1500m at @harryjeromeclassic on Wednesday 🤨 I’m happy cause a PB is always great -4:15.27 (was 4:17.93) . But disappointed because I wanted to run much faster.... However I know that like any event it takes quite a few tries to get it right! The 1500 is a kind of painful race that needs some getting used to! I need to respect the process! Unfortunately for me -that was my one & only 1500m of the year (I’m in desperate need of a BREAK!) - so hopefully next year ill race a few more😃 #respecttheprocess #1500m #harryjeromeclassic #nikecanada #justdoit #bebrave #oceanselite 📷 @maxgravina
