How often do we really stop and think about our breathing? Breathing is a huge part of my marathon training strategy - up regulating, down regulating, nasal breathing and using my breath to work out where I’m at. When things don’t go to plan I bring it back to my breath. If I’m in my head, I bring it back to my breath. It calms me, focuses me, helps me keep my patience (and goodness knows I need it, form drills can be infuriating and seemingly never ending) and ultimately keeps me in the long game. Do you make mindfulness and breath part of your training strategy? #mindfulmovement #marathoner #marathontraining #edinburghmarathon #mindfulness #imoveme #asicsfrontrunner #run #running #1000milesin2018 #wellbeing #igrunnerscommunity #london #🆑mindset #🆑collective

This is the end of the road. 3000 miles, 15 national parks and 6 pairs of shoes and one important message. This final stretch along the #southdowsway nearly broken me, and I'm finding it a stretch to even sit up, let alone muster up any sentiment right now. All I can really say is that this has been the most batshit chapter of my life, and in this moment I can't quite believe what I've done.
.
Tomorrow morning I walk the final 5 miles from Saltdean to Brighton, friends and family in tow. If anyone feels like they'd like to be there when I arrive at the pier, splashdown is at midday (or there abouts).
.
Thank you everyone, your incredible support has helped push me on when I felt like giving up, on more than one occasion. .
Next stop Brighton! (I'm so tired)

Wanna be like these two?

Have you got the Backpacker spirit?
Come and work with me! @chasinglightscollective is hiring! You heard right, we've a paid opportunity for a PT/ Coach to take up the role as "Community Coach" for the mighty @backpackersclc.
•••
The role will be initially working alongside myself, Community Captain @specialee85 and Captain of the Collective @navski72 to build out the sessions for the crew, giving them the tools to move with confidence. Once comfortable I'll take a step back and offer support when needed
•••
You'll need to be available Thursday evenings. Pays not through the roof as it's a community project, however other opportunities will present themselves through the CL Collective in the form of events, activations and corporate work. The team @lululemonuk will also be in support with opportunities to build relationships with the lulu family. I'll also provide as much training as needed around methodologies I/ we use and how to work and nurture groups such as this.
•••
Experience wise, you need to be a lvl3 trainer or your LIRF qual, and have a passion for Community work. Send us an email with an Introduction to info@clcollective.org

It's been so nice to have a few of the Runners-Next-The-Sea #runningclub out with me today! Generally speaking I'm happy in my own company (you sort of have to be if you decide to spend 13 months hobo-ing yourself around the country), but there have definitely been days where I've craved a little conversation on the road, or someone to share the scenery with. So I was so chuffed when this little bunch decided to meet me in Thornham at midday today to #run 15 chilly miles along the tracks and dunes of the #norfolkcoastalpath .
.
Theres something about the running #community thats completely unrivalled. When I run I definitely let my guard down; but strangely that makes me feel more genuine than vulnerable. After joining a few different crews and individuals around the UK I feel like this is quite a common thing amongst runners, maybe that's why those interactions feel more real to me in many ways. It's always a positive, inclusive space where people are honest and supportive, and that makes me want to be honest and supportive. Can't fault it. Cracking day 👍🏼

A highlight of this year has been finding my running family with @chasinglightscollective. So much love for this diverse collection of humans who open their arm and accept everyone with enthusiasm and kindness, and what better way to celebrate the festive season than getting the fam together to Chase Christmas Lights around London? We party paced (with lights and music) through the city to @lululemonuk Kings Road for yoga and our festive dinner. It was perfect. Merry Christmas Crew!

I find Black Friday a barrel of weird. It's only really become a thing in the UK in the last few years but it's exploded, and along with that explosion created this huge consumerist stress bomb (and trust me, I love a bargain as much as anyone). It can't be good for us 🤔earlier this week @navski72 dispensed a little #navspiration and suggested that we make an effort today to change the nature of Black Friday, and I'm with him. So here's my challenge to you, rather than impulse buying something that'll gather dust in a few months, take time to dedicate today to being kind. Make an active effort to be kind to yourself and others, whatever kindness means to you. Send all the love out into the world, and I guarantee it'll make you feel way better than a cut price electronic you don't need. How will you spread kindness today?

Gentle movements and an hour of nasal breathing to start undoing the week and to bring me back to myself ❤️ big love to @sammysamkiani, @lululemonuk and all the @chasinglightscollective people who turned up, plus to @hilolondon for the food! #yoga #sweatlife #lululemonyoga #london #crewlove #🆑mindset #🆑collective #mindfulmovement #breath #yogacommunity #londonyoga

• POPPY RUN •
#MedalMonday is a mini-flashback to Saturday morning when I dragged @emanueldfreitas to Finsbury Park for the @royalbritishlegion Poppy Run. A hilly AF two-lap 5K around the park which was promptly followed by massive burgers in the pub 🍔 A great event, a great cause and a great day out. •

Related point - fun fact for anyone who is wondering - coquelicot^^ = a poppy (en français).

BOYS CLUB.
Want to hang with some the best guys we know? Yes? Tomorrow night, 6:45pm @witfitnesslondon Shoreditch. They’ll be waiting.
