My first attempt at fartlek (can't help laughing). It went pretty well. Lined up my playlist with songs with a good, fast chorus in them to sprint to and took it easy inbetween. I'm hoping to be able to do this once a week to build up cardio and endurance - eyes on a September marathon ☠🏃‍♀️💪🏅

I set out for 8km today, but my legs weren’t in it! Plus a friend invited me round for a drink and a catch up so I ran to hers (the first 1.8km) stayed for an hour or so then ran home to make it 5km. I would have carried on but running short on time before picking Emilia up from preschool! I’m going to try and fit in one more run this week, 5am fitclub on Friday then rest before vitality next week. I’m excited!

Lovely run this morning, it was warm but cloudy so I didn’t get too hot! I’ve had a few twinges in my knee when going up hills, driving forward and sudden jerks, fingers crossed I can sort it out with some Physio exercises before the half in erm, THREE WEEKS!!! #runnice #runfrance #milesformind #10k #halfmarathon #run #runner #instarunner #thisgirlruns #thisgirlcan #runbristol #runninggirl #runnerfullstop #runuk #runsocial #igrunning #runhappy #welovetorun #fitness #exercise #fitfam #fitnessgirl #instafit #womenrun #womenruntheuk #anxiety #headspace #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmates #runandtalk

I wanted to do a #longrunsunday today.  I had a vague route in mind but not distance.  At 3k I had to stop for a walk so it wasn’t looking good for distance.  I didn’t let that put me off though and just kept on going.  At around 7k I decided to be more regimented with my run/walk and started running a km then walking 250m.  This was working well for me but then I got to go down a big hill so I abandoned that and just ran.  After that I just ran when I could and walked when I couldn’t. 🏃🏻‍♀️
I think I may have only gone over 10k a few times and over 12k just once.  My longest run was 16k. 👊🏻 Today I did 16.1km😂😂. That last km was hell! But worth doing the extra 100m to get the long run record.
🍾
Well done to everyone running today.  Whether it’s a marathon, half marathon or whatever / you’re all amazing 🏆 @lillybet.runs.alot @shellie0055 @bigcarlrunning @this_tomboy_runs and whoever else I may have forgotten.

Back up to 10 miles. It's the first long run I've had since Chester half so took it easy and just enjoyed it.

W?D5- ??miles🤷🏼‍♀️
Lost  all track of what I’ve supposed to have been doing 😬. As we were staying in Forres I couldn’t resist a nice run out in the country. The route took me off road and through farmland but sadly after about a mile I went over my ankle and nearly vomited with the pain😢. I thought” that’s it! That’s it over ! I’ll have to cancel the Heb 3 challenge 😡” I was so angry with myself and was stumbling around in circles trying to put my foot down properly but the pain was nasty and I was crying! ... yes I know, I cry a lot 😬Problem was my phone had died so couldn’t call Colin for help 😔.
.
Strangely enough though after I’d given myself a good talking to, I tried to take a few steps and.... the pain eased as quickly as it had arrived❤️🙌🏻. I walked in circles for a bit to make sure and nope.... no pain🤷🏼‍♀️. I didn’t want to risk carrying on though especially with no phone if the pain came back so I turned back. Two miles is two miles though and it was such a gorgeous morning to be out and about.
Stuck the frozen peas on it when I got home which helped and 🤞🏻 there has been no pain since 😬. Hopefully it’ll stay that way.
.
Came home to these two gorgeous buddies ❤️ Luna on the left and my cousins dog Oscar on the right ❤️.

Pfffft. That was hard, my legs feel sore from Sunday and cycling up Ashton Court hill last night 😱 still I went and I feel a ok now. If you’d asked me how I felt during that I would’ve probably likened it to hell.

So proud of myself!! I had my positive pants on today, and managed to push myself to complete 10km! My main aim was to beat the 6km I ran last week (before I lost my key!) and I just kept pushing on! Was going to stop at 8, then thought I might as well go for 10km!! Although I think that’s me done for the day now! 😂

North Cardiff was glorious this eve. Ran exactly the same route as Friday but 3:25 faster. Was it the sunshine, shorts or the fact it’s Sunday? Who knows but it felt good. 68m elevation in this route too 💪🏻#negativesplits to boot 🙌🏽
Bring on the Royal Welsh Trail Half this Saturday 😎.

It was a funny old day.  I’d booked the Maidstone Riverside 10k last year.  Then a friend booked to do it with me.  The plan was for @jayz_runs_and_cooks to cheer us both with Poppy.  What actually happened was Jon booked a place too and my friend pulled out - not because of Jon!
🏃🏻‍♀️ It was a very small race - less than 100 people.  I spent the majority of my race plodding behind a man in his 50/60s with one shoe which made a funny sound on every step.  No other runners in sight at all!
🏃🏻‍♀️ It was an “out and back race” so I knew Jon was doing well.  I counted 5 runners on their way back before he came along for a high five 😀.
🏃🏻‍♀️
Highlight of the run was seeing @anxious_to_ultra near the half way mark as the sole cheerleader for the entire race. 🙏🏻 🏃🏻‍♀️
Long story short.  I ran 10k.  My 3rd race of the year, which equals last years record breaking year.  3 more booked in, so that ticks off the years goal of running actual races with real people.
😀
Sorry for the long post.  Final thing was, I somehow lost my engagement ring.  Not in the race - it is somewhere in this house or in the car.  I just don’t know where.  Trying not to panic just yet.😬😬 And of course well done to Jon who got a PB and also fastest old man.  He won his first trophy 🏆 and some chocolates - which we’ve all eaten!
🏃🏻‍♀️

What a fabulous morning! A trot into town with my fantastic pacer bunny buddy, a lovely sunny jaunt around my beautiful city with my lovely friend Gemma, lots of hugs, high 5s, stories of PBs and general congratulations at the TMR stand, then a run back and debrief with bunny! .

Brilliant day. Managed a PB of 51:08 for my first #bristol10k which given the heat shocked me☀️ It was also fab running for the first time with Lottie for the Family Mile. Lotts wouldn’t let go of my hand the whole way round but we did manage a little sprint finish at the end.

This lady ran the Bristol 10K today. Blimey it was hot. Some gorgeous views around South Bristol And the harbour. #greatday #selfie #southbristol #southbristolvoice #bristol10k2018 #thismumruns #runnerfullstop
Wow that was hot! The first ‘mass’ running race I have done for a while and I loved it! After the shoulder and then the foot I thought I would never get there, so to get a PB is just the icing on the cake! It was privilege to run in the mental wealth team for @uwebristol too. Just not sure how I am going to double that distance in 4 weeks time for the Lacock Half 🤦🏼‍♀️ #greatbristol10k #milesformind #10k #halfmarathon #run #runner #instarunner #thisgirlruns #thisgirlcan #runbristol #runninggirl #runnerfullstop #runuk #runsocial #igrunning #runhappy #welovetorun #fitness #exercise #fitfam #fitnessgirl #instafit #womenrun #womenruntheuk #anxiety #headspace #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmates #runandtalk

Eek! This is really happening tomorrow. This time last year when I was due to run I was in Hospital with my asthma I was gutted but tracked my friends on the app as they made it round the course. I signed up for this year’s run as soon as the entries opened. I’ve felt ok about it up until now. Now the nerves have kicked in!

I’m nervous about (in no particular order):
- missing the run as I’m having my 12th nervous wee
- missing the run if I talk myself out of it - getting to the park n ride to find there is no space left
- falling over and getting trampled on
- feeling so nervous tomorrow I bottle it and/or cry
- being so red in the face people laugh at me 🍅
- being so slow all the barricades will be taken down and they will be sweeping the street. 
This last one is from a dream I have whenever I try a run with others that is planned - be it #parkrun or #raceforlife or tomorrow, the @great_run #bristol10k 
Someone please tell me these nerves are normal??!! #thismumruns #bristol #runmummyrun #thisgirlcan #headspace #runnerfullstop #asthma #asthmatic #run #runner #trundler #runandtalk #breathe @thismumruns #dodgylungs #icandothis

Yes, that’s blue sky 🙌🏻 ☀️ .
10 miles banked today in my own time, my own pace and my own space ❤️. Stopped at the Braighe beach at my half way point because.....well , why wouldn’t you?😃. Still needing a bit of a push to get out and run but I’m being kind to myself and not putting pressure on myself❤️. I’m just ENJOYING my runs ❤️.

Wooop, my first race ‘flat lay’ (is that what it’s called!?). It was touch and go if I’d be able to run but I will be there - I won’t be going for any PB, just running to enjoy it and soak up the atmosphere 😀 super proud of being part of the @uwebristol mental wealth running team too!

It was touch and go if I’d be able to run but I will be there - I won’t be going for any PB, just running to enjoy it and soak up the atmosphere 😀 super proud of being part of the @uwebristol mental wealth running team too!

I’m STILL struggling with the post marathons slump 😕. #runningmojo #motivation and #selfcontrol all missing! First km like running through treacle. Anyone else going through this?

I was pleased though that I’d taken a minute off the pace by the end and got #negativesplits 🤨

8 days to go until my next race the Royal Welsh Trail Half Marathon with @tanya_run_one.ill . Really looking forward to it, running through fields, mud, forest out in the beautiful Welsh countryside ❤️ and not worrying about pace as it’s super hilly! .

The plan was to run first a 10K route to the football field, where my son refereed a tournament and then run a 5K route back home, but I gave up after the 10K. I was so sweaty and thirsty when I stopped in the football field that I just stayed there and came home in my husbands car 😂

Oh #instagram, I’ve missed you ❤️. For the last few days I’ve been tired, sad, paranoid, withdrawn ......😔. All I needed to do was go and collect my prescription! But I kept forgetting, which left me over a week with out medication.
Initially I thought it wasn’t an issue and I’d manage....but boy was I wrong!
.
For those new to my page I was diagnosed at 39 with early menopause and started on HRT. I was a mess back then and desperately needed something as my thoughts were so dark it was frightening. That’s when I started running again as I’d gained soooooo much weight🙈. Running helped me to clear my head and keep me focussed and those happy running hormones were amazing🙌🏻. Three years later and things have been pretty good, I still get bad days like most people do but I can usually manage. Sadly I find I’m now rubbish at multitasking! I just cannot concentrate on more than one thing at a time 😩. What I find frightening is how this darkness can creep up on you without you noticing until you are in so deep you struggle to get out 😳. This time it was my fault, all I had to do was collect a prescription🤷🏼‍♀️. I feel better today, I’ve had 3 days of medication and although I don’t feel 100% , I managed to haul myself out for a run. I can’t believe how hard it was to even get out the door to do it 🙈. But! 2 miles ✅ and I have those happy hormones again ❤️. It helps, it really does . So! Get up, Get dressed and Go out 👍🏻
Running, I owe you so much 😘.

YIPPPPPEE!!! So it wasn’t pretty or fast, and I had to walk a bit, but it felt good (at times, most of the time I just wanted to be in a pub having a glass of wine). I’m feeling a lot happier about the Bristol 10K on Sunday now, confident I will get round! I can feel those lovely endorphins. It’s also my first 4 miles towards my Miles for Mind pledge, I did pledge 100 miles but I think 50 will be more realistic! At least it’s a start 👊🏻

Race numbers for the next few weeks are piling up! Loving the palindrome of the 10k for the Brentwood @crukraceforlife. This weekend it’s the 5k Race for Life with my 11yr old - his first “official” race. Although it’s not timed, it’s a great atmosphere outside of the parkrun experience, though with his speedy legs I doubt I’ll maintain his pace! .

Facebook tells me that on this day 2 years ago, I went for my first run with this crazy hound. He's run over 450 miles with me so far this year and I think he enjoys it!

My longest run (apart from the 2 marathons 😉) since 23rd March. Found it super tough and my pacing was terrible - splits all over the place! .

Think I’m in some kind of post marathon slump. Please can someone find my running mojo again for me?!

Bib came today for the Royal Welsh Trail Half @run4wales next week, hopefully I will be on better form by then 🤞🏼

A sunny 5K with the hubby ☀️ #coupleswhoruntogetherstaytogether
A tentative recovery run. Testing out my left calf. I've been feeling a few twinges since my last run and it's also felt a bit weak.
.
.
It's definitely not 100% but I really wanted to run today. I felt like a bit like this picture. Somewhere off in the distance in glorious sunshine is me running fast and strong. Sadly right now I am stuck in the shade running gingerly and cautiously hoping this isn't more than just a minor twinge!!
.
.
Lots of stretching to do tonight and some vitamin I (ibuprofen gel) and then I will see how it feels in the morning!!
.
.
Walking doesn't cause any problems it's just when I try to move faster 😂😂
.
.
I've definitely been neglecting my stretching and supplements so I need to get back on it!!!

Disappointed in myself for so many reasons with this run! 
1. I got it wrong - it was mainly in the sun. 
2. My headphones ran out at 6km. 
3. I lost my door key. 
4. I let my negative mental head get the better of me. 
On the plus side I kept an ok pace for the 6km, I just need to extend it!! I know I can do it, there’s always next week!

Hot hot run but happy with my pace even if I am still a bit wheezy! #thismumruns #runnerfullstop #headspace #bankholidayrun #mayday #runner #runr #bristol #hotandsunny
A very early 10k this morning and my best time for 10k this year. The more my distance and endurance increase, the slower my pace and it's been difficult to get back to a faster pace over a shorter distance. It's getting there.
Glad I went out early as it's going to be a hot one again today! 
On a side note: Blackpool tourists, the promenade is not a bin and there is definitely no shortage of bins to put your trash into! 
Litter maddens me any time but our coastline is a wonderful and precious thing. It's everyone's responsibility to look after it.

This run was so hard today - same theme as last year when I was doing the c25k! This run was just 3km of pushing myself. When I woke up I was too tired to run but as I laid there I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t go! Glad I did, and pleased I managed as far as I did! Such a beautiful day, can’t wait for some more family fun!

Stand strong and proud, even if you're not feeling it

Stand up to bullies, and embrace your body, even if you're not loving it

Hold your head up and smile, even if inside you want to cry

Because even if someone jeers you, beeps their horns at you, shouts from their van at you, laughs at you, or indeed spits at you, you know that you will be a better person than them

Thank you for all your messages and support. I'm glad it was me that they spat at and tried to humiliate, because I knew I could keep going. I knew that to run on and smash miles in the sun was me sticking two proverbial fingers up at them. I knew even though I was twenty years older than them, i could have crumpled under their behaviour and gone home. But I didn't. Someone else could have done, someone else could have been on their first run, could have been more vulnerable, could have made it a reason to go home and hide. But not me. Because I'm stronger - because of all of you guys here

So don't turn round, don't look back, know that whatever people say or do to you, you're showing how great you are by persevering - and you're a runner.

I'm glad it was me that they spat at and tried to humiliate, because I knew I could keep going. I knew that to run on and smash miles in the sun was me sticking two proverbial fingers up at them. I knew even though I was twenty years older than them, i could have crumpled under their behaviour and gone home. But I didn't. Someone else could have done, someone else could have been on their first run, could have been more vulnerable, could have made it a reason to go home and hide. But not me. Because I'm stronger - because of all of you guys here So don't turn round, don't look back, know that whatever people say or do to you, you're showing how great you are by persevering - and you're a runner. #bullies  #standuptobullies  #RunnerFullStop  #putonaface  #run  #runner  #running  #runningcommunity  #bestrong  #thisgirlcan  #thisiswhatarunnerlookslike  #thisgirlcanrun  #inspiringwomenrunners  #womensrunning  #runnersofinstagram  #instagramrunners  #runr  #milesformind  #perserverance  #tikiboofitness  #thismumruns 
I don't know how I missed it, but I have just discovered the @i_weigh movement! And it's absolutely genius. So here is mine, inspired by the amazing @jameelajamilofficial ❤❤
