I’m not going to be able to run this weekend so I got up early this morning to do my #milesformatt ✨ it’s heartbreaking to think that Matt went out on Sunday looking forward to a great day and running for an amazing cause 😔 you never think these things will happen, and the fact that he was so physically fit shows that it really can happen to everyone. He passed away doing what he loved, and the reaction from the running community and the amount of money that has been raised for his charity off the back of this is incredible ❤️ #milesformatt#finishformatt
Last marathon post I promise 😂.
So to cut a long story short, I had no watch or way of tracking my pace when I was running (awkwardly this was entirely my fault so I can’t blame anyone so I’ll just move on). When I was running I had to pace myself by gauging how my heart rate felt, it’s something I’ve paid a lot of attention to in my training. Learning how my body feels in each zone, what zones I can maintain and for how long. I always run with @myzonemoves belt so I can then look at an overview of my heart rate and see how I felt matched up to where I was percentage wise of my max heart rate.
Not only did I manage to not hit the wall, I can also see from the overview when my heart rate started spiking I adjusted my pace straight away to get back in the zone I wanted to stay in.
My first 25k splits in the marathon were exactly 5:28 minute km, I struggle to maintain this kind of pace consistency with a watch so I was soooo happy do be able to do it without one!
It’s also made me realise, that despite not getting my sub 4 (4:01:55) the months of training and all the hard work I put in have taught me so much and that growth is what’s going to keep on making me a better runner. -
On a separate note, 2,800 calories for 26.2 miles? I think I ate that on the start line alone 😂. -
✋🏼 up if you’re this happy it’s nearly the weekend. R&R this week means my legs are back to normal and my hips don’t hate me anymore, YAY.
I’m working from bed this AM and then off to Edinburgh for a city break this afternoon ✈️ Any cute brunch recommendations or fun things to do, HMU 🏴
A closer shot with my grazing friends atop Elmer's Peak. 🐐🐏🐐Temps here have climbed up in the high 30s so it's hard getting to run out in the afternoon. May switch back to early morning runs which I'm not used to anymore. 🙁🙁 📷 francramon
Leaving Greece with fully functioning quads, ready to take on more miles. The Hackney Half is just around the corner and I’m crossing fingers for another warm day.
I know the marathon was bonkers but I’ve entered summer mode now. I hear it’s raining in London... can we work on that please? 🙏🏻 Who else is racing Hackney??
INJURIES - niggles / tightness / pain / phantom pains - is it real, am I imagining things!!?? Hands up if you can relate. 🙋🏻♀️ Anyone who has had an injury knows the injury paranoia game. When in doubt trust the professionals. My right calf is tight, hills are not recommended.....however, I pulled up well this morning. Either way I’ll be at the start line Sunday whether running or cheering. .
Awesome Friday session this morning with LT - where the intervals felt better than the cool down. We both felt like we dragging our heels but as @leahtrem08 said it means we worked hard. HAPPY FRIDAY!!
