She displayed her athletic figure in a crop top and black shorts while promoting her Keep It Cleaner training app on Instagram.

‘First run for the year done. For me, completing the 0-5km KICRUN program wasn’t just about running 5km non stop. It was to work on my running fitness and to see if regular runs in my routine would make me hate it a little less,’ she wrote.

While Steph finds the cardio workout a challenge, she’s aiming to keep it up in 2022.

‘I can confidently say that I no longer hate running… it’s still not my favourite form of exercise but I love that I’ve proven to myself that I can be a runner and that I can enjoy it,’ she added.

‘An intention of mine this year is to keep running, at least once or twice a week and anywhere between 3-5km.’

In July, just two months after giving birth, she revealed she was feeling ‘stronger’ than ever.

At the time she shared footage of herself performing a gruelling at-home workout while promoting her fitness app.

‘Feeling STRONGER and loving it,’ she wrote.

Earlier that month, the model reflected on accepting her postpartum body and no longer aspiring to have a ‘thigh gap’.

She wrote: ‘I used to work out for physical change… fell into the trap of comparing myself to others and wanted things like a thigh gap, skinnier arms, smaller waist. 

‘But no matter what kind of “results” I got, I always wanted more. It wasn’t until I stopped training to look a certain way and stopped restricting what I ate and brought balance into my life that I actually started to appreciate my body.

‘Sure, I gained weight making those changes, but I realized that’s not what mattered. NOW I train to clear my head, have some “me time”, give myself energy, feel stronger, challenge myself and I also just love it!’
