Guest Post: “See This Mom Run”

Hey y’all! I’m Emma and I blog over at A Mom Runs This Town. I’m delighted to take over Alyssa’s blog today.

I’m usually writing about mishaps with my daughter or crazy Ironman husband…

But, in honor of “See This Girl Run, I thought I’d share some “see this mom run” moments in the form of my fave workouts.

Workout #1- Hills

Workout #2- Speed Work on the Treads

I admit, I was a rat on a wheel in my former life so I love going fast on the treadmill. Any pace that is at least 15 seconds faster than your goal race pace works.

What I look like after these workouts

Like I totally rock. Even the hubs agrees.

Workout #3- Speed Work on the road

My 3-2-1 workout. Warm up first with a 5-10 minute slow run. Then run 3 miles as fast as you can, jog/walk for 3 minutes. Run 2 miles as fast as you can, jog/walk for 3 minutes. Run 1 mile as fast as you can. I’ve been meaning to reverse and go 1-2-3, but I’m too chicken that my legs will give out on me!

Dripping sweat! Clearly summer selfies should be banned for runners.

And just because my daughter, Gentry, is requesting a cameo, I also feel like this

Give me water!

Thanks for letting me share my little thoughts on your blog today!
