First we run, then we enjoy cold coffee with friends 😁. What a great Sunday! When the sun is out everything feels better, doesn't matter how tired I am 😅 . I did my long run at lunchtime while this little boy napped and then we spent a lovely afternoon together. My first #postpartum half marathon is only 8 weeks away and it suddenly seems incredibly close 😱 #motherrunner #göteborgsvarvet
5th woman at Ashby 20!
I cannot believe I finally got that race right 😊😅
There’s a very downhill start and I felt like I was barely moving for the first 2 miles so despite planning on setting off very easy i effectively ran 13 miles at around MP before my planned pull off at 13. This was a tactical move to prevent my usual ‘hill panic’ that hits me when racing up steep hills! I wanted to feel relaxed and easy for the next 2 tough miles, then I relaxed back into a slightly faster pace to finish.
I had no placing goals, so I’m thrilled to finish up 5th - and I LOVE this year’s hoodie!
15 easy miles to finish the week.
This my 4th marathon training cycle and I’ve found it the hardest.
I only decided to do manchester on the evening before a training plan would start.
I’ve been Physically, mentally and emotionally exhausted which has made this a tough 16 weeks, but I’ve tried to go out and get it done wherever I can, concentrate on pacing properly and get the speed sessions in.
I realised today how that’s paid off.
My easy 15 today were faster than my MP in October. Which I found hard to maintain.
Whilst my ‘easy pace’ should have technically been slower than this today I went out and just ran comfortably, I didn’t struggle once and I just enjoyed being out.
Hopefully this is a good sign I can run the goal pace in 2 weeks time.

Race Ready 👌🏼
Pretty sure I’ve got a temperature but all I can do is prepare!
Beautiful weather today, so no fear about 🥶 in crop and shorts. 2 x energy gels and a glucose tablet to start along with lots of Body Glide for the warm temps! Also first race to try out slipping straight into my Oofos to cool down the toes!
Good luck to everyone who’s racing today!
4/10. A morning run is a much easier commitment.
=>> We are really good at convincing ourselves not to do things when we’re tired. After a long day at work or in school, the last thing we want to worry about is working more. If you go for a run in the morning, however, you “get it out of the way,” freeing up your evenings for much-needed relaxation. It’s also something you can do consistently.
Fabulous team members have shared ideas on how they are building daily exercise routine.

And that’s 10. ❤️ 6 easy this morning on the treadmill. As the afternoon passed, I felt myself getting antsy and the weather was just so irresistibly gorgeous- so I went out for 4 more and just ran by feel. Easy easy pace. 10 feels so good. I’m taking each day individually and doing what feels right. Yesterday running didn’t feel like a good idea. I made an error in judgement and jumped in a pool, pushed off the wall and was about two strokes in when my incision sites started screaming at me. So I took the day and just rested and let any potential inflammation calm down. The rest paid off and today I felt new. And as a reward, I got to run. 🙂

Today’s 8 miler took me up the west side highway and through the highline to run through the new Hudson Yards and to the upper west side. Colder, windier, and longer but I did it 💪🏽🏃🏾♀️. The running playlist is up in my IG stories!
6 easy miles to shakeout the legs before tomorrow’s race. Feeling good! Excited/nervous. The weather is looking good. I just hope the wind 💨 doesn’t get me! Good luck to everyone at the @letsrockcf @rivershalfmarathon tomorrow!!!
