#MOTIVATIONMONDAY - I’ve seen some amazing stories from the weekend with people smashing @racetothestones and @virginsport British 10km and all sorts of other races and it’s been incredibly motivating.
I found this quote a year ago and it’s just as apt now as it was then.
There is no substitute for hard work, you want something, go for it, no excuses.
You hear the cliche pain is temporary, pride is forever a lot these days and it’s so true.
How many people at the weekend were struggling but were able to dig deep and pull it out of the Bag?
Start to believe in yourself and there is no stopping you.
I have no experience of Ultra’s and even though I’ve done 11 Marathons I’m still no expert on those 🤣 But I’m currently following a plan and I’m really feeling the benefit of the Tempo, Interval and Hill sessions.
Teaching you to understand your pain threshold and showing you that you can push on further than you believed.
Seeing the guys at the weekend I think just goes to show what you can do when you set your mind to it.
Do the training, work your arse off and believe you can. There will be difficult times in any race but that’s what training is for - to teach you to deal with it.
Massive well done to everyone at the weekend - was glued to my phone following you all and maybe, just maybe I may do one of these next year...... Before you say it @jayz_runs_and_cooks I know I’m doing Brecon Beacons with you, @anxious_to_ultra and @dai_twice and I know I’ve gotta Run some hills and trails don’t panic 😘
You know I will 👊🏻 So to all the Ultra Runners, Marathoners, and any other Racers this last weekend - Big Love ❤️ You really motivated me and was so great to see you smashing your goals 👊🏻 I’ve tagged some of you but can’t tag you all so apologies for anyone I’ve missed 😘
Finally - massive respect to the 3 Angels who went to the finish line of @racetothestones and cheered everyone home! Amazing! @lillybet.runs.alot @redfaced_runner and @luckierunningscientist ❤️ Much Love ❤️
