10 Ways To Tell You Are a Fitness Enthusiast jillconyers.com @reneebenda #fitness

Hi Everyone! I’m excited to be guest posting for Jill. I’m such a fan and reader of Jill’s blog.

I believe that fitness should be fun and never boring so today I am bringing you:

10 Ways to Tell You are a Fitness Enthusiast

  1. You can take a flattering gym selfie from any angle. Those florescent lights can’t hold you back from documenting your new deadlift PR. You have mastered the art of the sweaty but not too stinky pout. You have also discovered how to take these without anyone noticing.
  2. You spend hours planning race outfits. Getting your heart pumping keeps you on your cardio high, but nothing compares to the sweet satisfaction of having laid out the perfect workout gear the night before the big day. From headbands and bra right down to compression socks your fitness fashions and ability to match gear are second to none.
  3. You have a set of free weights in your car ready to use at ANY time.
  4. You own more pairs of running shoes than you own regular shoes.
  5. You are the King or Queen of Groupon. Deals for dinners, manicures or massages who needs them? You scour Groupon and discounts sites hoping to save money on race registration fees. Keeping your race schedule busy and your wallet full.
  6. You know everyone at the Gym. On any given day at any given time you know the names of at least half of the other gym go-ers. And most of them would be able to name your significant other or dog by name as well.
  7. Music is your muse. Your ipod/mp3 player is filled with music dedicated to a variety of named playlists including but not limited to: 30 Minute Run, Pump Me Up, Power Classic Hits, Rock Roll and Run or the generic March 2014.
  8. You have a subscription to 3 or more of the following: Runner’s World, Fitness, Shape, Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Men’s Fitness, Ideafit, Self, Muscle & Fitness.
  9. You actually know what TABATA is. Most people hear the word TABATA and get confused. You’re a fan of a :20 Work :10 rest rate but have been known to venture to a :30 Work :10 rest when you need an extra push. You may also have one of more Tabata timers on your phone.
  10. You share. Some people never notice small victories. Each month you set and reach your goals. You can get up a 5 am to run 10 miles before most people have had a cup of coffee. You know that an extra cardio class or weight session a week puts you closer to the prize. Proof that putting in the time and energy will lead to results! When others are wavering in their strength you reach out to offer them the hand they need to stay on course.

10 Ways To Tell You Are a Fitness Enthusiast jillconyers.com @reneebenda #fitness

Because what really makes you a great fitness enthusiast is your ability to share your love of health and fitness with others.

Now its your turn: What would you say is #11?

Thank you Renee’! I have to confess. I’ve never used Groupon.

One of the Top 5 Proudest Running Moments

One of the Top 5 Proudest Running Moments jillconyers.com #racerecap #running

I didn’t even plan to share a recap. In my mind this was just another training run. This is the longest distance I’ve run since June. Running has only been 3-6 miles 3-4 times a week until the weekend before the race when I ran 8.

My total focus for most of this year has been on 100% recovery from an injury in August of 2013 and then increasing strength, flexibility and mobility.

I needed to run less to run better.

I clearly wasn’t think about blogging a recap. I only took 2 photos.

Pre-run fuel because I was eating one of my all time favorite pre-race meals that I have not allowed myself to eat in a very long time. I ate it in the dark on our way to the race. It’s not a pretty picture but it was the best overnight oats ever!

This photo was for my coach, Christine at Dream Big Runner. She has stuck with me and has been such an amazing source of strength, inspiration and patience. Christine never gave up on me even when I wanted to.

My whole mindset for the race was I will listen to my body and run the pace I can when I can. No pressure!

The race?

It was amazing and fantastically perfect.

Beautiful weather. A run date with Chad. Tree lined paths with the leaves changing to fall colors. I rarely looked at my Garmin.

Oh and for the record, ProCompression socks rock! I’ve tried a lot of compression and ProCompression is the best.

I didn’t have any doubts going into the race. Actually, I wasn’t sure what to expect given the fact that I couldn’t even remember the last time I ran 13 miles.

How did I do?

I finished the race feeling like I won!

More importantly I felt strong. It’s been a long time since I crossed the finish line with tears in my eyes. I truly enjoyed the run. Goals accomplished!

This race is one of my top 5 proudest running moments.

Fashion

Unless you count workout clothes, I don’t think I’ve ever shared a post that included anything remotely about fashion. It’s not that I don’t love clothes and shoes and I love to shop, but it’s not at the top of my priority list. To be honest, I’d much rather shop for new workout clothes.

For some reason, with the new fall weather slowly approaching, I have fashion on the brain. As you’ll see boots, leggings and jeans are my fall fashion staples.

Love love these outfits from Polyvore…
