Short one this morning 🏃♀️ just to keep them moving and that! Got an early appt at uni, some work to do and then I'm going to hit the gym for a swim and then I'm off to visit my parents for a few days ☺️ Happy hump day 💕
Liverpool Rock and Roll half, part 2.
I felt the heat and the pain after mile 3. By mile 6 I was in agony and managed to walk run to mile 8. By mile 8 I felt a mess. A sham. I was walking because every step hurt. I walked to mile 12, tears a regular occurrence. The marathon runners were running past me cheering me on, words of encouragement making me cry as I felt I didnt deserve them. I had set off before them and they had almost completed a marathon my the time I'd nearly done a half. As I got round that corner and saw the sign for mile 12 I cried more. I was going to see Becca @redfaced_runner soon, a friendly face on what felt a very empty course. I decided to test my ankles out, if I ran the sooner I saw her and the sooner this nightmare was over. Soon Becca was in front of me cherring those bells, being wonderful and I chocked up. I could feel the tears threatening to spill so I nodded and thanked her before somehow stumbling on. I kept going, my ankles were somehow holding on. I walked a little but then kept going. I knew I was nearly there. I came round that corner and I saw the finish line. The tears came again. Id done it. As I came down the last straight, it was the surrealist moment. No other runner came past me. Every person cheered for me. And me alone. The cheers spurred me on and I crossed that line. My living, painful nightmare over. #halfmarathontraining#halfmarathon#inspiringwomenrunners#instarunner#instarun#instarunning#womenrunningcommunity#womenrunner#womenrunning#womenrunners#thisgirlcanrunning#thisgirlcanrun#thisgirlcan#runner#running#runningcommunity#rnrliverpool#rockandroll#liverpoolrocknroll#rockandrollhalf
Happy 🏅 I had such a blast at the inaugural Utah Lake Olympic Tri this weekend. It was hands down the best Olympic event I've ever run. Perfect water temperatures and sighting for the swim. Gorgeous flat country roads for the bike. And a beautiful lake side run. I absolutely 💗 it! I also managed to take home 1st in my AG which was awesome 😄
I will definitely be back next year, what race has you excited to get out there this year?
