Ultra racing is H A R D . It taps you out mentally and physically and sometimes you feel destroyed at the end BUT it is so worth it when you cross that finish line, especially when you get the victory hug from @garyrobbins 😀 .
This is my 3rd appearance at #SQ50 〽️
50k 🏃🏽♀️ 50 miler 🏃🏽♀️ 50 miler and it doesn’t get any easier. It’s one of the toughest courses out there with rugged and crazy technical terrain, H U G E climbs and a total of almost 11 K vert ⬆️ But when you have two 👭 of the best trail sisters AKA Forest Fairies 🧚🏽♂️ @heatherrosescott & @kirk2678 🧚🏽♂️ by your side anything is possible and when you have the best ‘Mama Bear’ 🐻 crewing you it sure makes the race a whole lot easier. .
I went in feeling a little behind the eight ball in the training process but felt pretty solid until mile 35 when extreme nausea hit me. I had to dig deep for the next 15 miles and run through it. You can never really predict how it will all play out in the end even when you feel the best trained 🤷🏽♀️ We pr’d the big climbs and came in 3 mins after last years time ⚡️ 16 hours 8 mins 💥 Lots of laughs, encouragement, best dress award for the sparkliest on the trail 🌟, beautiful views and overall a kick ass trail party 🎉! . ➡️ Swipe for race highlights
The older I get the more understanding I gain about the importance and fulfilment that comes when in a position to help or give back a little. Was a great day on Saturday going through some mandatory poses with the boys, wbff stage awaits them in 8 weeks.
To gain the full benefit of your gym time, push it with these exercises. That means getting a good stretch in at the eccentric end of each movement, as well as a good contraction at the other day end. It means taking it slowly using the negative to intensify the force on the muscle.
Below is your killer chest workout
1. Dumbbell bench press - 4 sets, 10 reps (followed immediately by 1 drop set to failure at half the weight)

“Aren’t your legs getting a little thick?”...yea but they’ve saved plenty of sweet potato fries from falling on the floor so really who’s the winner here?😌
Been using the last few months to focus on some things and these legs are one of them. Been using occlusion bands (got mines from @squat.bands ) lately after doing some research and getting feedback from fellow athletes. So far I’m content with what I’m seeing. I’m able to get a substantial pump without having to tax my joints with an overwhelming amount of weight and reps until failure are 🔥. Always enjoy sharing what I’m up to with you guys so I’ll post more on it as time goes by.
⬇️Today’s workout was ⬇️
Reverse lunges into front squats
Smith Machine Split Squats
Single Leg Extensions

I don’t know about ya’ll but I’m genuinely obsessed with my bed!! I want to hear about your bedtime routine! Is there anything specific you always do before sleeping? For me it’s always applying my @laneigeca lip mask, my @origins eye cream and my @back2bareskincare vitamin C serum
