Boom a Park Run PB this morning in the beautiful sunshine! I'm annoyed with myself for not pushing a bit harder as I was with the 25minute pacer until nearly 3.5km. It was definitely mind over matter though and I should have pushed myself more but still over the moon with breaking 26 this morning and finishing 37th out of 168 females @fulhampalaceparkrun ☺ #parkrunday #parkrunuk #personalbest πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈlove the post park run Saturday feeling. #runningfeature

A tough 11miles today after a week of skiing and drinking far too much! #training for #londonmarathon2017 #vlm #running for #DUK #diabetesUK #ihavediabetesdiabetesdoesnthaveme #werundiabetes

I don't think I will ever get bored of this beautiful view along the #thamespath Absolutely loving the #beautiful weather we are having at the moment, summers finally here! Tonight was my first try at interval training as part of my #berlinmarathon #training plan, it was pretty tough but I feel great now and it made my #francamanca dinner even more satisfying. πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ#thisgirlcan

#motivationalquote to start this week off. Never in a million years did I think I'd be where I am today if you'd asked me last year. I'm loving the change in my mind and body, all the new challenges set and goals already reached. Also loving the amazing people I have met along the way, the #runningcommunity is so #supportive and #encouraging there isn't one event I've been to over the last few months where I haven't seen genuine acts of kindness. πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #runningfamily #motivationmondays #onmyselfbymyselfformyself

I was feeling guilty at work yesterday for taking my lunch hour to go for a run rather than showing solidarity and chaining myself to my desk like the majority of my colleagues but then I look at the effect on my #bloodsugars of increasing the frequency of my #running and the #guilt fades away... #ihavediabetesdiabetesdoesnthaveme #thisgirlcan #workingmum #parttimeworking #fitness #freestylelibre #typerundiabetes #type1 #diabetic #diabetes

Loving my new wardrobe addition from @thismumruns. Makes the cold Edinburgh weather that little bit less disappointing #thismumruns #runsweet #runnersofinstagram #type1 #typerundiabetes #ihavediabetesdiabetesdoesnthaveme #cannotdoaseriousselfie #musttryharder

There was no justifiable reason for this run being harder than the twenty times I have done it before.... But it was #blameitonthebloodsugar #runsweet #typerundiabetes #ihavediabetesdiabetesdoesnthaveme #5k #runnersofinstagram #type1 #diabetes

Just signed up to the #swanseahalfmarathon which will be my fourth #halfmarathon this year, but this one is slightly more special to me. My #run will be part of a #worldrecord attempt for the largest number of #type1diabetics to run a half #marathon together and also to raise awareness of #type1diabetes and the symptoms. Thousands of people die each year from undiagnosed #diabetes and these deaths can easily be prevented by knowing 4 simple warning signs: excessive thirst, frequent urination, low energy and weight loss. Having been a #type1diabetic since the age of 7 I have never really spoken that much about it and this #event provides the perfect opportunity to share knowledge and experience and help to stop #diabetes going undiagnosed. If you're a type 1 diabetic and keen to get involved then please register http://1bloodydrop.com/sign-up/ and sign up for the SHM πŸ’•πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ’•

Short #run followed by a yummy #lunch with @mattcarrig incorporating #running into actual day to day events makes it much easier to fit in! πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

A week after the #virginlondonmarathon2017 and my hair has gone back to its "natural" #blonde #colour after being #pink for #diabetesuk when my donations reached over Β£3k! I'm kind of missing it already πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ€

So this just happened...one week after my #firstmarathon at the #virginlondonmarathon2017 and I've just signed up to the #parismarathon next year with @kellogs_44 and @ghsparky eek!

Along with all the struggles of #marathontraining I have to say I've never felt so #fit and #healthy before. The last 4 months have been an intense process of endless #running #corestrength #exercises #stretching and eating well. On to the next #challenge #wimbledoncommonhalf #thisgirlcan

First #parkrun ever and first #training #run post #virginlondonmarathon2017 and a #personalbest too. ☺ blisters taped up!

Over £3k raised for #diabetesuk in my #virginlondonmarathon2017 challenge. I'm over the moon about the #support I have received over the last few months from all my #friends and #family raising such a large amount of money for a #charity that means so much to me. ❀️

Although my eyes are shut in this photo it is one of my favourite shots from my #firstmarathon experience at the #virginlondonmarathon2017 last Sunday. The #training and actual #marathon itself was the hardest #challenge I have ever set myself and I'm so proud of my achievement even though the day didn't go to plan. Having been a #type1diabetic since the age of 7 I have never let #diabetes stand in my way and although my blood glucose shot up to 21 (way above the normal level of 4 to 7) and contributed to me being really sick at around mile 16/17, I carried on to the very end. For those who don't know, sugar levels that high lead to dehydration and feeling sick which is not the best feeling mid marathon! I was determined not to let it beat me and although I didn't finish in my #trained for time, I finished, I got the medal and on reflection, I showed diabetes who's boss!
