9.5 mile parkrun sandwich followed by a much deserved coffee with my lovely mum ♥️ . 5.5 windy miles to parkrun, a decent 22:37 parkrun (and a 1st lady finish) with a mile jog to finish to make it up to 9.5 miles for the morning 🔥. Not a bad way to start a Saturday! . Also a big shout-out to mum who battled her way around a chilly and windy parkrun despite not feeling all that great, smashing it as usual 👏 . #saturdayrunday#parkrunsandwich#longrun#parkrunuk#loveparkrun#weekendmotivation#thisgirlcanrun
Han: What we aiming for Soph? Me: Errrr maybe around 50 mins? May be a push though. Outcome: Dipped under 47 mins for a controlled tempo. The thought of flapjack and breakfast with the girls (plus Daz!) was clearly a winner!
It’s very rare for me to be seen on a track but on Thursday I had the pleasure of joining some awesome people from the running community for the launch of @runthroughuk’s second @on_running @eastlondonhalf 👊🏼😀 • Thanks to the wonderful Lewis Moses of @newlevelscoaching for showing me a thing or two about the technical side of running, can’t lie I had no idea how much there was to think about! • Super excited to be a part of this unique road closed race taking place on Sunday 16th February 2020!! I might be a little biased but it really isn’t one to miss 🙌🏼🏃♀️
🚀 Friday’s 4 after fighting flu all week and nothing makes me happier than a new pair of @adidasrunning @adidas #ultraboost20 😍! My first ever half marathon trainers were ultra boost and I’ve had every pair since that first pair 4 years ago, so when @prodirectrunning kindly invited me to join their little challenge, I jumped at the chance! I’ll be running 100k in the next 2 weeks in these and will bring you an honest opinion on how they fair! Got to say, they fit like a dream and are so so light to run in! The ‘run to space challenge’ is on! 6km done, 54km to go... definitely the kind of motivation I need at the moment! Anyone packing those last miles of 2019 into the next couple of weeks? . #gifted#ownyourrun#adidasspacerace#adidasultraboost20#prodirectspacerace
WHY IS RUNNING SO HARD?! 😫 . Tag teaming with @run_phil_run this morning as he ran to #juniorparkrun and I ran back. I definitely had the rough end of the deal as it is pretty much downhill the whole way to JPR so coming back... 🤪 . 12.5km done though and now can get on with a lovely festive, chilled day 💜
A morning of festive fun with the @ldnburgerrun gang 🎄 - Starting to feel all kinds of Christmassy, and today we headed out on a 6 stop treasure hunt 💰 around central London... all in the name of a 🍔 - Trying to run through touristy af central London probably wasn’t the best idea 😬, but we did spread all the Christmas cheer! 🎅🏼 - Fancy joining us next time? Get 11th January pencilled in that 📆! More details to follow! - 👚👟 Leggings and Trainers GIFTED @sportsdirectrunning - #ldnburgerrun @ldnburgerrun
30 MINUTES A DAY KEEPS THE PHYSIO AWAY (I guess?) . I remember being about 3 weeks out from London, right before taper, and telling my dad “I just don’t feel strong enough to run a marathon”. Determined to do things differently this time and completely spurred on by #wellfar this week (@wellness_ed’s podcast!)... out came the kettlebells and the dumbbells, quick and simple abs and ass session. . Time to get strong AF.
🌳 Riverfront parkrun 🌳 My 210th parkrun was a cold and slightly wet affair. Although on a positive note I can feel my body slowly giving me more pace 😬 Under watchful and careful eyes I’m slowly increasing my runs and pace. It seems to be paying off 🙌 I’m so happy and relieved to see some sixes in my miles and not too mention have some consistency for a change, with 6:48, 6:48 and 6:55 minute miles to finish in 21:20 😄 However, I feel my non-buggy running days are over as @martha_runs has already warned me that next week Freya is mine 😂🙈 . How was your parkrun today? Did anyone get any PBs or go touring? #parkrun#parkrunuk#loveparkrun#ukrunchat#parkruntourist#parkruntourism#parkrunfamily#parkrunner#parkrunday
🌳 Saturday, also known as @parkrunuk day. I thought I would share today a photo that illustrates my progress. When I first rocked up at parkrun... . I thought I was too slow . I thought I was holding up the tail (not true btw) . 5km was a huge effort . And little did I know... the person taking this would become a great friend, I'd be RD / have a whole new friendship group in just 3 months and I would be over 50lbs down on my weight loss journey at the end of 2019 🙌 . It's funny what can happen if you just take those first steps . Photo 📷 : @digifire_photography . #lonelygoatrunningclub#lonelygoatrc#parkrun#parkrunuk#loveparkrun#runhappy
