The Turbo crew ready to cruise the streets of Lee on the Solent in search of seafront 🌊 playpark action and #icecream refreshment. 🚲🍦

Never mind the fact I actually walked a couple of miles with a two year old on my shoulders, pushing my mountain bike and carrying her balance bike when she decided she didn’t want to ride anymore! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂🤣

No ‘time’ for your injury rehab? Then try incorporating it into your daily routine. 👌 For me, once the acute injury phase of my #anklesprain was over and I had established balance, proprioception and sufficient strength around the joint, ‘single leg ops’ was (and still is) the standard!

Whether brushing teeth, making a coffee or folding laundry, I try and incorporate some unilateral work, calf raises, hopping, squats. (Not ALL the time, I may add😂🤣).

Today was dishwasher unloading on one foot (the rehabbed one). You gotta do, what you gotta do!

Nothing as glam as a changing room selfie #justanormalmum Just checking out the #yesican at @tuclothing.
Sainsbury's has the supermarket breastfeeding friendly clothes of the moment. Tu-tti fruity 🍉🍒(link in profile) and cheetah love going on. Will say quietly.....Autumn is on its way. They have in new shirts, long sleeves, denim. Particularly like the second top, great colour, print and it is just sooo soft & nice on. Rumours of the Sainsbury's clothing event this week too 😉

Back to building #mileage now the ankle is rehabbed and ‘training ready’. 🙌🏻 So it was a cheeky little 4.5 miler along the seafront 🌊 with #turbotoby on his @frogbikes bike and Tink in the @bobgearus single stroller!🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️

If you are expecting your first bambino (or your second/third...) 👶 🍼 and are in ANY doubt of the stroller to buy, then definitely take a look at the @bobgearus brand. We’ve had the ‘single’ for over 5 years and it has taken me through #ironman, #marathon and #halfmarathon training mileage, managing distances of 20+ miles on some sessions, which was handy as I had all my water and nutrition loaded up ready!👌 We also purchased the double version when baby no. 2 came along, which then took me through half-Ironman training, no problem. Absolutely the best #baby purchases we made and, most importantly, allowed me to get back to #training whilst spending time with the kiddos. To really get things rocking, I team it up with the @bose portable and have a proper #mobiledisco! 😂🎤

Amazing day. 😍 Date - took months to get all 20 together, destination - chosen 11pm last night! All us NCT pals, now with 2 kids each, more grey hair, more chaos but sharing the love for some very special friends.
.
It was crazy, expected nothing less. Special love & laughs for todays dragon & unicorn hurdle race, feeding the meerkats mealworms (found to be live & kept with the sarnies), meeting Santa's reindeer (always good to get in the reminder about good girls & boys....), lots of hand holding, laughing and as my little curl said as she fell to sleep "I have had a brilliant day mummy" 😍 That's what it's all about.

A coffee, a magazine, goodbye 2 inches of roots, hello again mum bob. A bit of luxury mummy time 😍
.
Is the first time I've been to hairdresser without a little mongoose with me, have had them sit on my knee, having milk, laughing in the mirror,  more milk, bit of a sleep and hey presto Mummy's hair is done.  Thought it would be nice but missing my cuddle 😚
.
I am a decaf girl and these must be the strongest coffees! So going to buzz round Sainsbury's after....( checking out the Tu-tti Fruity hits....Link in profile) Under the towel it's a Ted Baker day, milk before & as soon as I see the little guy for kisses 😙

Topping off a fab family holiday week with some high ropes action on the mountain, for the littlest people.... pretty impressed with our 2 and 3 year olds that motored around the obstacles! 🙌🏻 I also have to admit: I was about envious.... I desperately wanted a go! 😂😂

I’m definitely not normally the #bikini type, what with my usual jumping, divebombing and cannon balling into the pool; 🤗😂 HOWEVER, I bought two @zoggsuk bikinis 👙 and I have to say I’m impressed! They’ve withstood every water-fight, dunk, jump, waterslide and even the odd spot of sunbathing on the floating flamingo!👌👍

Because yes, I like to workout on holiday BUT life is waaaay too short to be serious... 😂👌 #posttrainingwine #holidayworkout #winefortraining #familytime #fitness #weights #fitnessperformancelife #turbofit #justanormalmum @zoggsuk

Exam #moderation complete for 2018 and this is it: one little bit of paper confirming that I didn’t work my absolute ass off in vain. The passport to University and my Physiotherapy career. Bring on Turbo Fit Phase 3....🙌🏻

A stunning evening up on Butser Hill on the beautiful #southdowns this evening running with client @garethspinkelephantchallenge, as we went through plans@and@fitness testing for his next bonkers #endurance challenge event.☀️🇬🇧

It was the first time testing the ankle back on #offroad surfaces, after a bad #sprain, and it held up great! 🙌🏻

I taped it in a specific way to reduce the risk of rolling it laterally and took it mega steady in building through from flattish(ish) terrain to some climbs and then to descending with a little speed! 👟

💫 Personal development 💫 I cannot recommend this book enough 💖.
.
Those of you who know me personally will know that things haven’t exactly been amazing these past 3 years but I am learning to accept what I cannot control.
.
However I CAN control the people I choose to spend my time with. I CAN control the fuel I put in my body. I CAN choose to lead an active life. YOU HAVE A CHOICE. Be healthy, be happy, be YOU 🤗 💫Happy Thursday 💫

‘Cause at the end of the day, no matter how ‘grown up’ you are, a rude vegetable will always make you giggle....😂🤣 I hope this can bring a smile to whoever sees this post! #thecarrothasapenis

A lateral ankle #sprain (rolling the ankle outwards) means rehabbing the joint to cope with forces that send it......you guessed it:
👉laterally.👈
Especially if I want it to withstand the terrain and loading forces of #offroad racing and #ocr.

As an advanced #rehab move, I’ve already made my way through basic exercises, soft tissue treatment, manual manipulation of the ankle and foot, eccentric loading, small on the spot plyometric exercises and more. So ensure you never jump (pun intended) straight into this.👌

Lateral jumps can be altered in any way: height, BOSU, step, direction. This is just one, inspired by @theprehabguys, I used last night. My ‘bad’ ankle is the one landing on the floor; however I did mix it up so the foot is landing on both stable and unstable surfaces.

As a #triathlete and lover of all things to do with #weight training💪 (and body beasting in general) I’ve well and truly been caught by the #obstaclecourseracing bug 🐛it’s the perfect combination for me! The @muscle_acre event was a fantastic re-intro to and reminder of this kind of #racing and, despite an injury pulling me up at the 10km mark, I loved this course! 👍👍
So so looking forward to building back the #offroad fitness and hitting November as part of the support crew for @garethspinkelephantchallenge!

3 burpees
3 power snatches
3 overhead squats
5 burpees
5 power snatches
5 overhead squats
7 burpees
7 power snatches
7 overhead squats...... .....I got to 11 🤣

Blustery, rainy and bloody brilliant! 🌧💨☔️ Managed not to get blown away this evening! I love running in weather like this, the seafront was empty apart from me and two dog-walkers.👌

Two weeks after what felt/looked/acted like quite a bad sprain, I’m back up to four miles testing the ankle out; so so surprised/happy about it, it’s untrue!🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️

I’m still weaning it back in, so prior to the run, I taped the ankle to give a little support and provide proprioceptive feedback. I also gave myself three x 1 minute walking breaks as well as included some acceleration/deceleration #drills to gauge an initial response of how the ankle will cope with the demands of off-road #running. So far, so good! 👍

Now it’s back to the #rehab mobility exercises, @mobilitywod #voodoofloss and some hands-on joint manipulation!

Tried something COMPLETELY different for me today....

Yoga! (the ONLY time I have ever tried Yoga before was when heavily pregnant with Toby and I spent the whole hour trying hold a fart in.💨 #truestory)

So it was actually an afternoon workshop based on #breathing, fascia, the diaphragm and use of #corgeous ball techniques to aid in efficient and effective breathing patterns and #exercises which all serve to stimulate the parasympathetic system to promote a more ‘rest and digest’ pattern of operating.👌

An excellent intro to Yoga techniques led by the fabulous @h20kittykat at @lanoyoga. I definitely got some mega tips to take away to use in my own training, as well as with #turbofitpt clients too!
