Preparations for the 3rd traditionat Triatlon after work took their price - pizza for dinner! Nobody complained 😉! I have never had so little kilometres in the pool and bycicle like this year... and before we start I will give 2 lectures at colposcopy course! It will be an interesting day, stay tuned for the report 🏊♀️🏊♂️🏊♂️🏃🏼♀️🏃♂️🏃♂️🚴♂️🚴♀️🚴♀️😃
Back on it - 4 weeks after the marathon, from drinking excessively and travelling I’ve now started to ease myself back in to running. Did record 5k tonight on strava but it somehow didn’t save my run 🤦🏻♂️ but a 5k run is a 5k run and my body feels it (especially my head, need water ASAP)
🏅 MEDAL MONDAY 🏅
What an absolute CORKER of a day at @virginsport Hackney Half yesterday. With 20,000 anticipated runners, the amount of support was crazy! So much great music, so many lovely cheers and so many great banners! I think i was grinning non stop from mile 0 to mile 10 (the last three were a struggle). Best group of supporters DEFINITELY goes to @run.dem.crew around mile 10 - you made me grin so much 😁
It was so lovely to catch up with old friends @flomaybrockway and @htrevenna 😍 I feel very lucky.
One of my top highlights amongst all of these absolute blinders (including my free banana 🍌)...is that I’m absolutely delighted to have a new half marathon PB - thank you Hackney! ♥️
Today I have finally submitted my PhD article! Four years of work, 26.556 participants, two mentors and twenty co-authors of the study! I have learned the lection of perseverance... to go on after you are already tired of going on. It is not so different as in running and other sports... the main difference is that different interests of players can make progress harder and bitter-sweet. But we did it! And we have for sure prevented some cervical cancers along the way ✌😎 .
The first thing I did after the submission was hitting the local trails through meadows and forest up the local hill 🏃🏼♀️☀️🌦❤😎. And then... best sister in the world @dianastepisnik brought home big McDonalds bags full of unhealthy food 🍔🍟🧀 and we ate it all! What a good day! .
Hope you are enoying the weekend wherever you are and whatever you are up to 🤗💛🤗
