Had my first ever could not run today. Suffering with immense back pain I went to cheer on my hubby and cousin (who I gave my place too). Although I was gutted I couldn't run and had my first ever experience of race envy, I was so so delighted that she enjoyed it so much and is already looking forward to another one. Must add I never ever thought I'd see the day I would be gutted I couldn't run 🤣. #lovetoinspire#helpingothersrun#salford10k#raceenvy#rmr#run_mummy_run_rmr#running
When you're feeling grumpy because today is your first DNS for a race you signed up for and couldn't compete in, so you decide to finally hang a medal rack and build your own bib rack. Sigh. At least I'll be well-prepared to hang my next race stuff. But merf. All the merf.
London 🇬🇧 💙had the most amazing day catching up with old friends yesterday, which helped to ease the serious #raceenvy I was feeling watching the #londonmarathon 🙈 at least I have the #hackneyhalf this coming weekend to channel all the inspiration I got from seeing all the runners conquer London! 🏃🏼♀️
These last few weeks have been such a #challenge. Dealing with a bad case of tennis elbow, I had a terrible showing at my first #OCR of the season at Polar Hero in Ottawa. I had to skip the #Spartan Sprint at Greek Peak a month later. These days I'm rehabbing my elbow while dealing with some mysterious swelling and pain in my right tibia and foot. I've gone from running 30km a week to less than 10. I've managed to get some #HIIT in almost daily but I'm nowhere near where I should be after putting in so much work in the months after #OCRWC in October. I know I have the support of some amazing #racing friends but I have to admit I'm really confused about what to do anymore. I have a busy #competition schedule this year and I'm doubting whether I'll ever be ready again. I'm doing everything right but none of that seems to be working. This morning I find myself having to skip another weekend cross country run while I see so many of you killing #obstaclecourses all over the world and I feel my own #endurance levels crashing. I can't believe how far I've fallen through no fault of my own since mid-January. I'm not about to give up but I have to say I'm really at wits end today. #injuriessuck#raceenvy#gloomysunday#beachbody#determination#exercise#fitness#fitstagram#fitsperation#health#homefitness#healthandwellness#P90X#spartantraining#fitnessaddict#honeybadger#obstacleracing
