I found out on Tuesday that due to an (huge) error in MIND processing, my place was cancelled without my notification so unfortunately I won’t be running GNR this year. I am devastated and can’t process it at the moment but needed to let you know. I have been trying my hardest with GNR and countless charities, to use one of the places that are now available due to injuries and people dropping out as I’ve been offered countless spaces from amazing people on different social media formats and forums but unfortunately they will not change details and let me run. Disappointed is an understatement and I feel like I’ve let down those people who have donated. They are rolling over my donations to my entry next year which is a positive but it’s not what I’ve trained for. Life is a journey and this journey to GNR 2018 has taken a different road. So onwards I go and I’m trying to stay positive and look for another event I can run #running #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #thestruggleisreal #gnr2018 #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation

Back to it this morning 🏃🏽‍♀️ Summer holidays + House renovations + weddings , festivals and anniversaries has made me tired and lazy the last few weeks but enough is enough ... i’m going to sit down and write out my training plan for Hurtwood 50k today ( thanks for the help @rachrunsoutdoors )and also some nutrition planning as I’ve been eating all the junk and it’s left me feeling sluggish and chubby. Don’t wait for Monday’s to press the reset button everyday is a new opportunity 😊

My face may be red and sweaty, but I’m smiling!! I wasn’t smiling during the intervals, but persisting with them has lead to this grin.....bring on the Great South Run 🏃‍♀️ 💕 .

Well at least the snails seemed happy about that weather first thing this morning! Me... not so much! I got soaked on that run. Also finding these pre-breakfast runs really tough but they’re the only way to get it done in the school holidays. They must be doing me some good surely?!? #runaroundeurope #ukrunchat #fitmum #fitmom #mumswhorun #motherrunner #snail #thisgirlcanrun #thisgirlcan #thismumruns #stravarun #strongnotskinny #rainyrun #runningismytherapy #runhappy #instarunners #ihavearunnersbody #lovetorun #runner

I've got my stuff for tonight's run straight from work 😁
Tonight's plan is a progressive 4 miles 🏃🏾‍♀️ I used to run progressively without trying but pacing isn't my strong point 🌱

Barney Memorial Cambridgeshire County Champs 5k 🏃🏻‍♀️🏆
.
So first, let’s start with the positives. This has always been a goal race for me during this marathon training block, and up until about a week ago I thought I was going to have to miss it. After Sunday I was feeling good to I decided to enter last minute & give it my best shot! I’m really happy that I managed to place 1st female, got to represent my club, and that I seem to have to put my injury well & truly behind me!
.
I don’t want to use the word negative, but after the race last night I couldn’t help but feel disappointed. Deep down I wanted a PB, it would have been the icing on the cake, but unfortunately I missed out (by quite a lot!) I went out far far too quickly and this affected me later on in the race, it was definitely a case of getting carried away & I paid the price!
.
Buuuuuuuut having slept on it, overall I am pleased with how last night went, and I just need to remember how far I have come. 6 months ago this would have been a HUGE PB for me, and off the back of an injury, and a half marathon at the weekend, I maybe need to cut myself some slack!
.
Not every race or run is going to go to plan, but as long as you learn from it, that’s all that matters ❤️

First run of marathon training achieved. Thank god the heat has gone as that run was really enjoyable with the cold wind, although part of me wishes it was raining, im a weirdo but i love to run in the rain. Successful first run me thinks considering ive not been out running in weeks. Bring on the Gower 💪💪🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

PS - i know go by Iron Woman after the security guard at work decided that would be my nickname as I always pull out the delivery cages on my own at night 😂 .

This is my garden looking grey and wet as I went out for my run this morning. I threw in some one minute sprints, between ten blocks of three minutes’ steady running. It upped my pace so I’ll see if this has an effect overall in my pace.

Throwback to not long after route planner @e.runs.this said err, Rach, I forgot to say we are going up Pen y Fan twice 🏔🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻‍♀️ I think she thought it was funny and was a bit worried what I’d think at the same time but I was absolutely delighted. Before we met up that day Elyse had mentioned maybe just doing a run around the reservoir then walking up Pen y Fan to look at the view...my heart sank at the thought of running next to but not up the mountains. However, I now know this girl is just a tricker! I had thought it was an odd plan for two people who think flat is boring 😆 Gotta love that girl!

One month today ... never felt so unprepared 😬

Trying to stick to half marathon training while on holiday. Yesterday ran a lovely flat 5km along the seafront.

Dublin marathon training day one ☝️ LETS DO THIS 💪🏼
I’m so glad to get stuck into a marathon training block and I can’t believe I’m working towards my second marathon! And this time I want you to join me! 🏃🏽‍♀️🎉
.
I’ve teamed up with @ecovacs_global to lead #TeamDEEBOTUK as part of their #RoadtoIFA challenge. This is a virtual competition against teams across Europe to cumulatively run the distance of Düsseldorf to Berlin= 592km by 5 September 🏃🏽‍♀️
You don’t have to sign up to anything, just use the tags #RoadtoIFA and #TeamDEEBOTUK and your mileage will count towards the UK team 🇬🇧 I’ll pop more info on my stories this evening! There’s even the chance of a prize or two! 🎉
I really want us to win (cause we’re the best!) and I’m so glad to have this as a motivator to get me back into the swing of marathon training! I hope I can maybe give you all a little motivation to get out there too 💕
Cannot wait to lace up this evening and get going. Just a day at work to survive first...... 🙈

First day back from holiday and I couldn't face running this morning so jumped on the cross trainer for 30mins instead 👍🏽
Going to try a nice & easy gym sesh 🏋🏼 later.
Just taking it one day at a time right now. My only running goal this week is to get a solid 8 miler in over the weekend 💪🏽

A wise man once (or many times..) said... “the big things stay the same... until we make little changes.... “💙.


Thanks Frank Turner, you’re 100% correct. I think I spend 95% of these posts reflecting on things.... which for me helps put things in perspective. I remember the first time I listened to ‘little changes’ I cried.. thinking about all that I needed to do and all that was lost... now I try and look at things a little differently. It’s all about taking the big things and dividing them into little chunks to tackle... making little changes really does make a difference.... Take running for example... my little change was to stop beating myself up about my pace and lack of running... sorted that (mostly...) and now I’m running again. I actually managed 7 miles the other night... longest run since I got injured... I mean I had the odd stretch pause.. but still - miles were covered 😃🏃‍♀️💪🏼.



Like I said in my last post... I’ve had a weird time of it recently... but I’m riding or more aptly running through that storm because that’s the only way... and I’m looking forward to seeing the sunshine at @mediomaratonvlc 🧡 🇪🇸.



I’m running for @mindcharity throughout this year because I genuinely believe that absolutely no one should have to tackle mental health issues alone. •

Please remember, EVERYONE matters 💙.
