Tour De Iceland: Running Edition.
Today I got to run along side my brother for his first half marathon and cross the finish line together; it was a really special experience. I’m so proud of him for challenging himself, trying something new and totally crushing it. 🏃 🏃🏼♀️ way to go @crawfordmcdowell ❤️🙌🏻 #yesyoucan#pyl#reykjavikmarathon
7.5 months postpartum
I been getting a fair few comments from women saying that I got back into shape too fast after giving birth to Mia. It’s not the case, it’s been 7.5 months and while I’m happy with myself, I am nowhere near as fit, strong or lean as I used to be and I didn’t “bounce back”. Being a fitness professional doesn’t automatically make it easier than others to get back in shape - yes I know how to do it but it still takes hard, consistent work.
I just want you to know that it does take a while for most people. Even though I’d been exercising for about a decade before falling pregnant it has still been tough for me to get my fitness back. I’m getting stronger all the time though! 😊
Over the past few weeks I’ve really noticed a big difference in my core stretch and upper body strength. I’m able to do 20 full push-ups in a row whereas a few weeks ago I couldn’t even do 1 properly! It feels so good getting strong again. I feel on top of the world! 😃🙌🏼
I’m happy with how my body is looking right now too and my goals are to gain muscle, get stronger and work on my explosive strength like sprinting and box jumps. 👊🏼
Remember to be patient while working on your goals. It takes time and dedication, but you can do it! 😉😘

Spending the weekend in the Swiss city of Basel, which is - very much to my surprise - quite a lovely and lively place! Went for a run along the Rhine this morning and couldn’t resist to jump in and have a wee swim 🏊♂️
