BERLIN πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ 4:26 πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ
And my first of the 6 WMM did not disappoint! πŸ…
Not the sub 4 I was after but you know what? I couldn't care less. I had the best time ever out on that course today. I was running comfortably till KM34 (the last 8 were HARD WORK!) I ran my little legs and heart out and I'm super pleased and proud of myself πŸ˜ƒ
It's the most comfortable marathon I've ever run so obviously my hard work didn't go to wasteπŸ’ͺ
I'll get that sub 4 one day. I know I've got it in me. But for now, I'm just gonna be happy with what I've achieved today. Because running a marathon is no easy task, whether you finish in 3 hours or 8 hours it's still an amazing achievement!
Big love and thanks to every single one of you that's helped and supported me on this training cycle ❀️ It's meant the world β€οΈπŸ™Œ Excited for the next one...πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή

Want to know a cool story? I was joined by some amazing ladies near the end of #theharvestrun2017 yesterday. This awesome gal in particular is @rhi87 and she was actually my patient and encouraging tail-runner from when I did @runmelbourne back in July. I felt so blessed to have her come back and join me again yesterday. She really didn't have to. She had already long finished, had her wine and could of started celebrating but she came back to keep me company (with her friend too). I LOVE THE RUNNING COMMUNITY. Thanks again @rhi87 ❀️ @solemotive #harvestrun2017

🌟4:05🌟

13 minute PB!! I didn't want to mention it on IG before the race because I didn't want to use it as an excuse but I have a horrendous cold and fever πŸ€§πŸ€’ and I really thought this race was ruined. But I'd have been so happy with 4:05 even without the cold so I'm feeling seriously proud 😊

Also thank you to everyone who tried to track me, I'm sorry that you got no info! My chip number apparently isn't attached to my name so they don't know that my time/splits are mine!! They think I DNS!!! Double bad luck eh?? More debrief later ❀️ thanks EVERYONE who has trained with me, supported me, shared this training plan with me! You're al heroes and I love you all x

Last double digit run before the Bournemouth Marathon in two weeks time. Today the whole family joined me and we did some geocaching along the way too. The selfie by the road sign is because our surname is Perry! A bit of a struggle for me today as I'm full of cold and I feel really run down, but now I can spend the next couple of weeks recovering, the hard work is behind me now.

The marathon plan. I've had a lot of dms asking!

Training for my first half last year I used the Nike app plans. This is the old Nike app not the run club ones. Loved the plan! It was a good milage and it got me to the line strong. I skipped most speed sessions as I just wasn't that good at them and found them hard. Jill @sw_jillybean did the same half, used the same plan, did the speed sessions and came in sub 2h.
Nike updated the app to the new run club app in the middle of our training. I was devastated!!! Plan gone!!! I managed to find a non updated app on my ipad and quickly took screenshots of the plan and never updated it again.

I started my marathon training late. I had hardly run for 2 months and my weekly milage was 6. I had the app and used the Nike beginner plan. Took screenshots.. just incase!!! I had to get up to milage quickly and I had to get my long run up. First weeks in August I did this. I just ran. Took me 3 weeks but I got up to where I should be.

I had a chat with a run friend. I talked about upping to 2 speed sessions a week, throwing in hills, doing parkrun at pace, going to track and she rightly said look... you have spent the last 2 months running 6 or 9 mile weeks. You have never ever done any hills or speed work ever. Your body will be stressed and pushed to limits by the milage and the distance. You started the plan 6 weeks late. Push too much, do too many harder runs on top of this and you will get injured. This is marathon one. Goal is to stay injury free and to complete it.

Sensible advice. I did a week of 2 speed sessions and pulled my hip, hurt my hamstring. Spent the next week only able to run slowly and do yoga.

Half way through Nike shut down the old app. After this I couldn't see the detail of the speed sessions anyway! Pattern was:

Monday - miles increasing to a faster finish
Tuesday - speed work, intervals, progression run
Wednesday - easy
Friday - easy
Saturday - long run

I followed the mileage, ran more in the summer where I could, did some speed. I adapted to suit me. This is not advice, this is just what I have done. Next time I'm sure I'll learn and do it differently again!! #marathon #marathontraining

πŸ’•πŸ‘‘ @rundisney PHM training session #7 πŸ‘‘πŸ’•Sweaty #sundayrunday 5k done with @harriette_runs She was faster than last week πŸ‘ŠπŸ» She has four runs planned for next week - 30mins Tuesday and Thursday, either 1mile or 5k Saturday and a 3k on Sunday. I’m not sure why I decided to wear a #cpfc jumper - slightly embarrassing at the moment πŸ˜‚ Hope you’re all having a fab weekend, especially those doing Ragnar, Paris and Berlin #thisgirlcanrun #motherdaughterrun #runningkids #princesshalf #princesshalfmarathon #princess10k #princess5k #enchanted10k #fairytalechallenge #disneyprincesshalfmarathon #rundisney #everymileismagic #raceyoutothecastle #runhappy #everyrunisablessing #girlswhorun #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #run #running #ukrunchat #runchat #womensrunning #runnerscommunity #thisgirlcan #justdoitsunday

I am getting back on the motivation train. Just when you think you have got your shit together you fall off the wagon. I was sick about a month ago and then my husband was away for 2 weeks doing the Kakoda Track. Anyway, I stop exercising and eating all the wrong food. How quickly I fell back into old habits which has resulted in a 2.8kg weight gain. Today is Monday and I am starting fresh.

All green today! This honestly never happens so I just had to document it. #fitnessgirl #fitnessgoals #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #exerciseforlife #healthyandhappy #strongnotskinny #bgjtl #healthylifestyle

For the month of September, I set a goal of 200 miles and ToDaY I HIT.IT! I ended up running a half marathon today to seal the deal for my miles which gave me extra motivation to push my body. I have a girls weekend this week and knew that I had to push myself since I was going to lose 4 days this month to accomplish my goal, however, I now have 4 days to exceed my goal. Setting goals isn't so much about the actual "goal" but about becoming the kind of person who can achieve it and prove to myself that I'm capable of accomplishing what I commit to. Now it's time for me to go thaw myself off! #goaldigger #200miles #fitnessmotivation #fitmom #runningmanchallenge #dedicationhasnolimitation #halfmarathon #whynot #goaldriven #rainorshine #workoutselfie

View from the top. So nice to be out will definitely be doing more of this for the next for years. Running is free as are views like this.

Well done Tracy who completed the half in a new PB. #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun

So home and resting after the windsor half marathon. Its definitely one i want to do again.

It was tougher than the thorpe park half and my time was slower, but i was smiling over the finish line rather than breaking down in tears, so i must be getting stronger.
Managed to run til around mile 8 to 9 when there was a very long hill that i just couldnt manage so had to walk it. Was slightly disappointed especially when the sub 2h 30 pace maker passed me, i had passed her a few miles earlier and thoiggt i was way ahead :-( At the top of the hill i started to run again and got to mile 10 before starting to struggle again. I then had to walk twice more before mile 12.

Once i turned the corner and saw the finish line down the bottom of the hill, i knew i was nearly there. 1 down hill mile to go, but that mile seemed to last forever.

I focused on the view of windsor castle and just kept putting 1 foot in front of the other. Even managed a small sprint finish.

It was a beautiful run and very well organised. Big thanks to all the organisers, marshalls and air cadets who cheered everyone round.

Day 29 C6 - Run day. So did my last long run of this year - a half marathon and shaved 5 minutes off my time! Still not sub 2 hours but that's something to aim for next year πŸ‘πŸ» I'm going to knock the long runs on the head now until spring and stock to 5kms or 10kms and really focus on my weights and toning. Couple of walks today as well and ALL the steps!
Breakfast was a banana and a small bowl of muesli for fuel. Lunch was very late! Had another banana, a protein shake and a cloudbread turkey sandwich. Tea was a roast dinner at a pub but couldn't really enjoy it as the monkeys were kicking off so we literally ate and ran! Roast beef, Yorkshire pud (half stolen!), couple of roasties, mash, veg and gravy. And a celebratory beer this evening. Milk stout!

What an incredible day! Big achievements for both me and team mate Dan - his first half marathon and a new PB for me at 2hrs 3mins and 54secs πŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺπŸ‘
Massive respect to Sam and @beccadam who ran the full marathon! I don't know how you guys did it, it was amazing! Also shout out to @dave_willo_86 for biking around the course and taking selfies with me at mile 11...really didn't want to smile at that point!
Manchester Half...??! πŸ€”

I did my first Handicap 10K race with the club this morning and it was a very hilly second half! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
I came in at 1st female which I was very happy with as I am aching and bruised from my Tough Mudder yesterday, so I actually was going to volenteer with timekeeping but decided to run as they didn't need anyone else! πŸ˜„
Today I came in at 10th person but 7th overall!!

My first run since the Great North Run πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ I loved the first mile! But almost vomited during the second. But it's done. HURRAH! πŸŽ‰ I went out for 22 minutes to earn the @virtualrunneruk medal I should've ran for on the 22nd but didn't but that I got in the post anyway πŸ™ˆ
β€’
I've worked myself up this past week overthinking this run. This whole year was about running GNR and once it was done I was scared I wouldn't be able to run anymore. But I can!
β€’
So after panicking and overthinking all day today I decided once it got dark to go for it πŸ‘πŸΌ just like I used to back in January when I started this madness with #c25k.
β€’
Now I want to find a plan, a training plan and stick to it. Whether it be 10k, one to increase speed or a half... I dunno, but I'm excited again!

I haven't stopped today! Good food and 7 miles walked / ran with the pooch! We certainly enjoyed our run and river moment.. though a smelly pup had to have his first bath when we got back! Pong!! Really proud of my we is worth of steps.. the most I have ever done. I can't see this happening for a while as I need to spend more time working. But I'll definitely be running more again with him. #thisgirlcanrun #thisgirlcan #ilovemud #thisdogcanrun #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworldlove #slimmingworldfood #slimmingworldmotivation #slimmingworldinspiration #slimmingworldjourney #slimmingworlddiary #slimmingworldbodymagic #fitbitlove #fitbitsteps

You know it's been a good @tough_mudder when your trainers need to go through the wash twice πŸ˜‚
I have bruises in places I didn't think it was possible to bruise, bruises I am only just finding my dog jumps on me, and knees that are looking black and blue πŸ™ˆ Yesterday is going to be a day to remember for ages πŸ’ͺ🏻
A massive thank you to @eattrek for fuelling everyone around the course and myself for the next couple of weeks! Ben, you did a great job at keeping us organised and laughing when we fell in the mud πŸ˜…

Today was my longest run ever! 15k from Richmond to Putney Bridge in less than 1:45:00 and I'm so chuffed. 😎 We tried gels as well for the first time and they were delish and seemed to help me soldier on at a good pace. Plus I had Coach to motivate me and take photos like this! πŸ’š Feeling like a proper runner today you guys!
