I Cant Get Into My Instagram & Workout Recap

So I still can’t get into my Instagram account!

I had updated my Instagram password a few months ago but usually follow a similar pattern to my passwords so that I can remember them.

Clearly, not this time!

Please be sure you remember your password for Instagram because if you don’t, the password reset process when you forget your password and are logged out of Instagram is not like any other social media account.

Instagram sent me a 5 digit code that I had to write down on a plain piece of white paper along with my name. Then I had to TAKE A PICTURE holding the paper and send it to them.

I haven’t heard a word since sending that email. It’s a little bit annoying at this point to not be able to access one of my accounts.

Anyway, on to my workouts!

Monday – Pure Barre/5 Miles

I wasn’t in a rush so I had time to start my morning with a Pure Barre Mile High Series DVD (disc 1) followed by an easy 5 mile run outdoors.

Tuesday – Pure Barre/35 Min Run

Losing my phone yesterday had a major affect on my workout for today.

I don’t like to run without music and I normally track my outdoor runs with Runkeeper. Without my phone, I was without both of those necessities.

I had a few options:

Run inside on the treadmill and watch television.

Run outdoors without music or Runkeeper.

Skip my run because I am a baby who doesn’t like to run without her phone.

I ended up switching up my workouts slightly so that I would still run outdoors just not as long. Normally I run a little longer/faster on Tuesday’s but the thought of an hour outside running fast without music was not appealing.

So, I went with a Pure Barre workout followed by an easy run outside for 35 minutes.

Wednesday – 7 Miles

Nothing too exciting to report here other than I was able to run outdoors again! I was tired and my legs were a little heavy but it was still a great run.

Thursday – 8 Miles (fartleks)

I really wanted to take advantage of running not only outdoors this week but running a little longer if I could since I had the time.

8 miles is fairly routine for me but not so much in the winter months due to the time constraints from the late sunrise.

I went with fartleks for four miles after a 2 mile warm up. It’s fun to speed up and slow down whenever I feel like it! I really like fartleks for that reason.

Friday – 4 Miles/Pure Barre

The sun was shining so early and it was already 50 something degrees before 7:00am! I headed out for my run and then came home for two Pure Barre Tone in 10 Workouts:

  • Arms & Abs
  • Seat & Abs

Saturday – 11.55 Miles

Why the random mileage? Well, I wanted to stop at 11 miles but then told myself at the 11 mile mark to keep going until 12 miles. I realized I was totally over this run and wanted to go home so I stopped.

11.55 miles.

I was completely overdressed for this run because I didn’t realize it was as warm as it was when I headed outside. I never really found my groove which I think had something to do with being overdressed. It was also super foggy as it was really all week in the morning.

By early afternoon though it was gorgeous outside and felt a bit like summer. Sometimes I forget I am on an island until I am suddenly level with and looking at the water.

Sunday – Pure Barre

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Anyone else ever lose their password for Instagram? 

How is the weather by you right now?

    That password process for Instagram sounds crazy! I have never heard of anything like that before. I was also overdressed for my run yesterday and ended up tying my long sleeved t-shirt around my waist after the first mile so I was just running in shorts and a tank top. It definitely felt like spring- or even summer- yesterday morning!

    I have no idea what my password is… but I think its linked through my Facebook? That’s crazy I’ve never heard of that, but did you make sure you used the same email address that is linked to your instagram account to send the email?
    Its hot and rainy here !

      I definitely used the right email address. I don’t know why this is so complicated! I have a work account linked with my account through facebook so maybe that is complicating things. I don’t know!

    That’s insane for Instagram! I feel like I didn’t have to go through that process..maybe it’s different if you’re set up as a business/community account? I hope they reset it soon!
