Linsey Davis in Workout Gear is a "Glutton for Punishment"

Davis captioned the post, "Glutton.For.Punishment. Whew!

Picturesque Portland!"  How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Linsey Davis stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Runs

As you can see from her Instagram post, Davis loves to run. She even travels the country to run in marathons. She talked about her love of running to Shape Magazine. "In April, we will run a half-marathon in our 38th state, which is Kansas. My favorite race so far was in Vermont. It was a covered bridge race, so it was so quaint and beautiful."


She's Committed

Davis is committed to running. She talked about her training process in her Shape Magazine interview. "Running a half-marathon is all mind over matter," she says. "Once you make the decision to run, and commit to the race, your body will follow. And take water breaks! My weekly goal is to run 16 miles per week, divided up in different ways depending on my schedule. In the winter, the treadmill is my best friend, but [in] all other seasons I train outside."


She Takes Care Of Herself

Davis is all about self-care, and shared her favorite practices with Shape Magazine. "It's different for everyone," she said. "But for me, [self-care] means listening to my body and doing what makes me feel good mentally, physically and emotionally…which is usually running as that allows me to get into my best headspace."


She Leans On Her Faith


In an essay with Guideposts, Davis talked about her health struggles after having her first child. She says that she struggles with anxiety and leaned on her faith to help her get through low times. "Whenever the fears assaulted me, I'd pick up my Bible, look for a verse and meditate on it. My blood pressure didn't go down immediately, my anxiety didn't disappear at once, but the routine became my medicine, as crucial for me as the pills the doctor had prescribed. Paul and I would kneel beside our bed—as my grandparents had done—hold hands and pray. Pray that I would return."


She Loves Sunshine

"Getting too much sun is dangerous for your skin. However, contrary to what sunscreen companies and vampires have led you to believe, getting some sun every day is actually quite good for you. The sun loads your body with beneficial vitamins and hormones. You can't see it happening, but you can feel it. It's there when you walk outside on a sunny day and you get that warm hug feeling right before your nice shirt is stained with pit sweat. Sunlight releases serotonin (the happiness hormone) in your brain, boosts your bone health, and actually might help treat several skin conditions," says InterMountain.
