  • I’ve been grinding away over the past month working on my endurance and strength to ensure I’m fitter and stronger than ever coming into the NZ track season later this year.

Averaging 160km a week has been a hefty work load in this abysmal Auckland weather, but I’m loving the challenge, even if the rain, hail and wind are doing their best to dampen my spirits.

Whenever I’m feeling flat, tired or unmotivated, I always ask myself one simple question...How bad do you want it?

If you’re willing to put in the work, make the sacrifice and keep your dream at the epicentre of your being, there’s no telling just how far you’ll go!

So...How bad do you want it? 👊

  • This is the park I’ve been running in in Germany. 🤗
.
Now that I have concrete goals again, I feels organic to share on social media again. I feels like something I genuinely want to do.
.
So buckle for this next chapter, people!
.
Here’s the line up:
✅Half Marathon, 05 OCT, Indianapolis, IN
🔶Full Marathon, 16 FEB, Austin, TX
🔴Bataan Memorial Death March, 16 MAR, White Sands, NM
.
I grew up running cross country and track but at that, my longest race was 2.5 miles. 😂 This will be a whole new challenge and I’m sure to hit walls I can’t even see right now.  I’ll be documenting as much as possible so be sure to subscribe to my You Tube channel!
.
Right now, go watch my video “Why I quit Coaching” for the whole update on the last six months and how I got here. Link in bio!

See you out there! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️

  • Earlier this year, we challenged trail runners in Santiago, Chile to do as many summits of local mountain El Carbon as they could...for 12 hours straight.
.
So, on one Saturday morning, 10 runners got together and did so. Thus, "12 Hours" was born.
.
Last month, some really rad runners--Kari Ramirez, Polo Pavez and Javier Vásquez--took on the challenge again. They started at midnight, and ran up and down El Carbon for 12 hours straight. YEAH.
.
Kari, Polo and Javier go down in the 12 Hours books for their effort. A huge congrats to all three of you. Absolutely boss!💪🏔
.
.
Want to do your own 12 Hours, but don't live in Santiago? Give us a shout: team@vert.run.

  • 🎧 Expectations vs. Reality - Part Two
.
In this episode, I’m recounting some stories of real women who were kind enough to share their pregnancy training experiences with me!
.
Each woman says what she thought would happen, and then how things ACTUALLY happened.
.
This episode really highlights how different pregnancy is for each woman, and that’s okay! There is no such thing as a perfect pregnancy, there’s just doing the best you can with the circumstances you have.
.
In case you missed it, Part One of the series came out last week and is all about setting goals and expectations in a way that won’t disappoint you for your pregnancy and postpartum journey.
.
And coming soon: Part Three will revisit the ladies from this week’s episode to hear about their postpartum expectations and experiences.

  • BONE HEALTH.
.
“Milk builds strong bones.”
.
“Getting enough calcium ensures strong bones.”
.
“Only post-menopausal, caucasian women need to worry about osteoporosis.”
.
When is comes to building strong bones, most of us think of calcium and calcium alone.
.
Growing up, you probably remember seeing the “Got Milk” commercials. In these commercials, an elite athlete with a milk mustache talked about the importance of milk. He or she explained how milk was a vital part of his or her success.
.
So, time and time again, you were told to drink your milk and take your calcium supplements. If you did that, then you would be solid.
.
Your bones would grow nice and strong. Therefore, you did as you were told and never thought twice about your bones.
.
But did you know that bone health has to do with a lot more than just calcium?
.
It has a lot to due with your lifestyle, level of activity, hormone health, nutritional status, and more.
.
Also, conditions like osteopenia are not just for the elderly.
.
In fact, many female athletes with the Female Athlete Triad actually have lower than normal levels of bone density and more than 50% of females with anorexia have decreased bone density.
.
Not having your period, having low body fat, not eating enough, eating a diet full of processed foods, etc. can all play a role.
.
That said, here are a few nutrients which are important for maintaining strong, healthy bones.
.
1️⃣ Calcium – Keep in mind that calcium alone provides little benefit in protecting against osteoporosis. Further, relying on milk for your calcium is not ideal. In fact, large consumption of milk has actually been shown to negatively affect bone health due to it’s high sugar and vitamin A contents.
.
2️⃣ Vitamin D
.
3️⃣ Magnesium
.
4️⃣ Zinc
.
5️⃣ Vitamin C
.
6️⃣ Vitamin K2
.
7️⃣ Collagen
. 
8️⃣ Vitamin B12

  • Always wanted to ride this route - Killar, Pangi to Leh. It was a challenging, wonderful endurance high altitude training week which tested all my mental capabilities. The rides included lots of kilometers (about 485kms) and vertical gain, crossed some beautiful passes
- Baralacha La (4890m)
- Nakke La (4769m)
- Lachungla (5059m)
- Tanglangla (5325m)
Would say it was a lifetime experience to reach Leh on my race machine Scott Scale RC900 and trust me you need different balls to ride these passes. 😉
I think the body and mind has acclimatized well for the @northquestchallenge

  • Last month Harry Jones @harryruns lined up in Chamonix for his first 100 miler. Anything can happen in a 100 mile race and as we know this is especially true for UTMB. Harry put in months of training throughout Europe in preparation for the significant vertical gain, time both in the Alps and in other European ranges. The result was success – a 15th place finish at the biggest and most competitive 100 miler in the world. The lessons learned in the 24 hours out on the trail will be incredibly valuable for Harry as he attacks this distance more in the future. 📷 @josemiguelmunoze #exploreperfection #corosvertix #utmb #trailrunning #ultrarunning #running #endurancetraining

  • ‘I’m not a runner’⁠
⁠
One phrase that we hear time and time again. But here’s the thing, mama, you ARE. You ARE a runner.⁠
⁠
Whether it’s running a marathon, a 10k, a 5k, a mile, a jog around the park, or a sprint to get your potty-training toddler to the bathroom. YOU. ARE. A. RUNNER.⁠
⁠
Yes it’s called Run Club. And-yes-it’s for runners. It’s for the marathon mamas. It’s for the sprint-to-the-potty mamas. It’s for everyone. And who knows, maybe that jog around the park will end up being your first 5k? You never know until you try. 😘⁠
⁠
Our next 10-week Run Club session starts on Saturday, October 5.  Registration link in profile, or DM us with questions and for details! ⁠

  • We get many questions about the masks, and we’re here to let you in on the reason you’ll see them worn at gyms and on athletic training fields!  Altitude masks, also known as elevation, oxygen restriction, or training masks have been around for years.  They were developed to help the endurance and lung strength of athletes.  With the same concept as training in places of high altitude, the masks were designed to imitate the process of working out in thin air or high elevation by reducing the amount of intake air one receives.  The makers of masks claim that if used properly the respiratory endurance of athletes becomes stronger. 
We’re not advocating for masks, that research and decision is fully yours to make, but what we can do is appreciate our members who’ve decided this is for them.  With all of the options that are available to us regarding health and fitness we can sometimes be overwhelmed and unsure of what things to purchase or try out.  But what it comes down to is a uniquely made you, that gets to decide what’s best for your body and your goals. If you’re a gym member who’s working out, your doing it right!  As you set new goals for yourself along the journey, you may want to give additional tools a try, but there’s no pressure to add anything in until your ready or wanting too, or at all. 
You may remember John, videoed here, as our June member of the month.  We just want to thank him and all the other training mask wearers for so graciously answering members questions over the years, for dodging looks of confusion or even fear, and for training like a beast despite it all.  You inspire us! #trainingmask

  • ❗❗𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻❗❗
.
.
Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle to repeatedly exert force over a period of time, and to build muscular endurance you should do sets of 12 to 20 repetitions.
.
Muscle strength is the maximum amount of force that a muscle can generate. The body adapts to this type of training by increasing muscle size. This muscle growth is called hypertrophy. To build strength, do sets of six to 12 reps.
.
Muscle power is the explosive aspect of strength. To build power, do sets of one to five repetitions.
.
(Terms like "endurance" training refer to specific repetition ranges. The rep range dictates the weight that is used. The amount of weight that is lifted and the number of reps determine the training results.)
.
Not everyone will adapt to training in the same way. One's genetics, gender, exercise history, nutrition and recovery will affect training results.
.
Most women, for example, do not have the genetics to build serious hypertrophy from strength training.
.
Often people make the mistake of thinking they are using a weight appropriate for a particular rep range, when actually the weight is too light.
.
For example, people often use a weight appropriate for an "endurance" rep range when they think they are working within the "strength and hypertrophy" range.
.
.
.
🔴If you are new to lifting weights, I suggest one to six months of endurance weight training before starting heavy strength or power training. This introductory phase will help you learn proper lifting techniques, and allow your connective tissue to adapt.

  • How did I get to 99 already??? It feels like I just started this program and yet tomorrow will be workout 💯🤯 When looking at a large obstacle (like 100 workouts) you can’t go into it worried about how long it will take. You will end up quitting long before the end if you do. Take it one day, one workout, one rep, one minute at a time. There were so many days where I didn’t think i could make it. There were so many times I said “i can’t do that crazy move”. So i modified and moved on. 
And since I’ve been going back and repeating some of those workouts I CAN DO THEM now, when I couldn’t the first time. 
Working out, like life, takes TIME. You can’t expect to be an expert on your first day... but looking back, this meltdown experience was WORTH EVERY SECOND of sweat, even on my doubtful days. 
So if you don’t think you can do it... i promise you that you can! You just have to take the first step. I’m always here to help because everyone deserves to have someone in their corner cheering them on to meet and exceed their goals. 
99 workouts down... and forever to go 🎉

Never did a think that a 10k would be my comfort zone. It took me a few years to break free of doing just 5k races. My first 10k broke me. The weather was horrible. My mental state was messy. My second one... probably not much better. Now, it’s different. Now I can randomly say, hey let’s do a 10k next weekend and it’s all good. It’s like a regular Saturday. So that’s what I did. 😂

After a few hard weeks of crapping training for the half, I want to feel good again. So next week I registered for the @northwellhealth Great South Bay 10k. I need a mental boost... something to get me over the hump to break another comfort zone and master this second half marathon that’s coming up rather quickly. So next week I’ll be giving it my all. I don’t expect any PR’s as I am definitely not at peak performance level, but I’m going to go and conquer this FOR ME.

How are you with comfort zones? Can you break free or is it too hard to do?

  • 🤗Why berries should be a part of fruits when healing🤗
The power of berries 
Berries are very powerful. They are one of the most powerful things you can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 
They are very close to the endocrine glands (glands that produce hormones and control the body; the thyroid, parathyroid, and pituitary gland). These are all positively effected when you eat berries often. Eat them in abundance for breakfast lunch and dinner all by themselves. Berries are a strong antioxidant that can lower blood pressure as well.

You can eat as many as you want, no need to count calories. Go on a berry cleanse for 2, 3,4 weeks and see the benefits it will give you. Just stay consistent! 😊

  • We live in a microwave society where we desire and demand instant gratification, instant results, and even instant fitness
.
We search for the quick fix, life hack, or latest fad or short cut to reach our goals
.
And just like anything else worth accomplishing, you can’t microwave fitness! It’s a process - sometimes a long one - and the power is within that process
.
It’s in the miles, the adequate recovery, the consistency, and doing the hard things even when we don’t feel like it
.
I often talk to athletes who have huge visions of accomplishing major goals... and then give themselves just 3 months to accomplish it
.
And I get it. I followed a 12 week plan for my first marathon and my goal was to break 3 hours. I finished, but I was grossly underprepared, fell way short of my time goal, and it is still my most painful race to date
.
Don’t get me wrong, I love dreaming big! I love taking risks! I love stretching myself and growing into the person capable of achieving my big goals! But a valuable lesson I’ve learned along the way is to value and respect the process required. And this means I’ve had to learn a lot of patience, discipline, and long term vision
.
Back to our cooking analogy: ditch the microwave and use the slow cooker. The hard earned results will speak for themselves!
.
Have the vision to see the end, but have the reality to embrace the process required that bridges the gap between your current self and who you want to become. 👊🏻
.
What’s your big vision? Have you given yourself enough time to grow into it?
