It’s been an eye-opening week on Instagram for Dunham. On Monday, she posted a paparazzi photo of herself jogging and opened up about changing her attitude about the exercise.

"@jennikonner is directing the season finale of Girls and decided that as Hannah evolved so would her run, so she got me a training session with Matt Wilpers from Mile High Run Club," Dunham explained. "Within an hour I had a different relationship to this formerly torturous activity. I felt strong, swift and proud."
