Can I take a moment to brag? Not necessarily brag but share a new accomplishment for a me; one of those moments when you realize your hard work is paying off. I had that moment yesterday.
You see, I went to the gym, like any other day and busted out my 5 mile run and then started strength training. I had push-ups on the agenda which usually means doing 3 or 4 on my toes, then finishing the set on my knees. (There’s nothing wrong with that and I’m a full supporter of dropping to your knees during push-ups when you need to!) But Thursday was different. After I hit 5 push-ups, I realized I could finish my whole first set on my toes. So I did. When I started my 2nd set, it was definitely getting harder but I finished on my toes. And come the 3rd set, I was shaking but I was so close to a new goal, that I was able to push myself.
I finished 3 sets of 10 (30 total!) push-ups ALL.ON.MY.TOES! To some this may be nothing but to me, this was new, exciting and a great sign of my progress as an athlete!
Anyway, I’ve definitely come back from last weeks illness, though there’s still a bit of phlegm (gross!) but that’s an easy fix. My energy has returned and as you can see, I’m clearly owning my workouts! 😉

How were your workouts this week?
When did you last have one of those moments you realize your hard work is paying off?
Whoo hoo! Congrats on that arm and core strength girl. 🙂
That is AWESOME girlie! I can only do like 8 MAX on my toes before I’m about to eat the mat! Lol Way to go! And glad to hear you’re feeling better! xoxox
Nice job on the push-ups! I’ve been working on mine too. I’m glad you’re feeling better, too! You go girl.
Good work friend!! I can do about 5 at a time haha.
My workouts this week have been pretty good…5 days in a row! Yeah…spring break and a sweet hotel gym gets me working out more consistently! 🙂
That’s so awesome about the PUs!!! They are my absolute favorite thing to do. 🙂
Nice work!!! I did not have great workouts this week – not feeling my best, but hopefully this weekend and next week. I need to get a long run in!!!
Dang girl!! Great job!!
I agree that that is a big accomplishment. I bet you feel like you can do anything now. Way to go!!!
I felt like a beast and probably would have jumped up and celebrated but I didn’t want to cause a scene… 😉
Yay Katie! That’s awesome! Glad you are feeling much better this week!
Thanks!! Me too!
Nice job! You put some serious work in at the gym!
Thank you!! 🙂
Way to go! Full on push-ups are tough–I’m still working on them. Happy Friday!
I have NO idea where this came from…I usually feel like I’m struggling through push-ups on my knees!
