I ❤️ Chamonix .
Day two was just as perfect as day one, don’t think it’s possible to have a bad day in such a beautiful place. Yesterday’s stats: 33KM of trail running with a climb total of 2500 meters.
.
Legs really felt it yesterday so a lighter day is definitely on the cards, unless @ultralan can persuade me to do the Chamonix VK.
.
Thoughts on this track though?😍

Tonight was my 3rd run back and I finally pushed through the 5k barrier!!! Tonight I slowed my pace right down and for the first time in ages I felt good at the end, the past 2 runs I've gone off too quick and struggled to finish where as today even though it was further I knew I could do more so here's a #BigSexyThumbsUpSelfie to celebrate the day I finally realised slow and steady wins the race!!! #Selfie #Selfies #SweatySelfie #Beard #Beards #BeardGang #BeardNation ##BeardPorn #BeardedModel #Run #Runner #Running #RunnersOfInstagram #InstaRun #InstaRunners #Cardio #Fitness #Exercise #GreatNorthRun #HalfMarathon #UkRunning #UkRunChat #ThumbsUp

I have finally found some Internet, thank you to the local person who didn't put a password on theirs 😂

So yesterday I passed into Colorado, state number 12. I had a great time coming through Kansas although I'm not sure why seeing as most of it is prairies and farm land for as far as you can see!

I had great weather in the morning but after I climbed 700ft to the colorado state line there seemed to be what felt like a hurricane moving in. I had 85kmph headwinds for the remaining 16 miles, mix that in with hail and thunderstorms and the rain felt like bullets. Thankfully by the time I made it to the first town it was mainly over.

There is very little between now and Denver as many many people seem to be stopping to tell me. Luckily there was a restaurant and a motel in the first village and the barman very kindly paid for my meal before I went and collapsed on the motel bed.

Today's weather was much nicer and I think the first time I have worn a hoodie since I left Maine! Some of the locals think that the first snowfall may be early this year so I may have to make some adjustments to my route after Denver which is a shame as I might have to miss out on the mountains and four corners. But let's play it by ear. Denver first!

I'm looking at finishing this leg next Sunday at the Mile High stadium on Denver at mid day, if anyone would like to join me for a few miles that day, running or walking, then drop me a message and I'll give you the details.

My legs were feeling like lead weights after yesterday’s long run. But after a 5-mile recovery run and a strength training workout in the gym they’re good to go again. Might not be saying that when the DOMS kick in tomorrow though!!!!

EASY RUN - 7.5 miles @ 7:36 pace around Trent Park 😍

I didn’t have my phone for photos so here’s one from our last family run there last year... Edwin wouldn’t pose for the shot so it’s just his butt I’m afraid 🤦‍♂️ #ohmygosh #lookatthatbutt

Some people drive, some get the train, some people #RunOnPlants 🌱🏃🏻‍♂️ #marathontraining #berlin42

I got happy post today when I got home. Just in time for medal Monday 🏅
I was admiring it once I got home from training tonight. I love that it spins!
Training tonight was 1k reps and this isn't usually one of my favourite sessions but in all honesty it was just nice to get back to the club after a week and a half away, catch up with everyone and regale them with stories of my race in Dublin.

#mondaymiles Well that was a struggle tonight!
.
Woke up at 3am, started work at 4am, drove for 9 hrs 45 mins, finished work at 17.45 and then ran 12.4 miles!
.
Just could not get in a rhythm for the first half of the run hence coming back faster even though it was predominantly uphill. It seemed to click after I stopped to take some pics at the turn round point (swipe for mile splits).
.
I was a bit concerned on the way out about the remnants of the blisters from last weekend, then after a few miles it felt like my knee pain was coming back.
.
The run back was much better but think that was cos I was distracted by it getting dark (didn't take a headtorch 🤦‍♂️) and wanted to get back to the lorry and make some dinner.
.
Gonna take the rest of the week easy and drop any sessions, just as a precautionary with the knee.

Back to back long runs. My watch lied to me and I thought I was going slower then that. 6-7 easy miles tomorrow and I think I will have earned a day off.

Make time to massage sore muscles and give your body the recover it needs.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Foam roll right after your workout or even the next day to reduce tightness and soreness.

Happy Monday!

Tonight’s course was a reverse of Richmond Parkrun - easier in some places and more challenging in others, especially that hill at the end. Well done team!
Next session - Wednesday at 7pm.

REST DAYS - what do you do? .
.
.
Some people always seem to hit a recovery run while others seem to hit the foam rollers, what do you prefer? .

#MOTIVATIONMONDAY - A slightly different #motivationmonday post from me tonight 😊

I mentioned it in my post earlier, inspiration is everywhere around you and it’s fantastic to be inspired by others and for that to drive you to get out there and make shit happen.
But sometimes if you are struggling, that inspiration can work the other way and you start to compare yourself to others and start letting those negative thoughts creep in and get in the way of your goals - you need to tell those little fuckers to fuck right off, we’ve got goals to smash 👊🏻 Not every day is easy, but take the little wins as big wins, be kind to yourself and take control of the things you can.
Not eating well - then cook a meal
Not hydrating - poor a glass of water

Sometimes all it takes is a little victory like that to change the course of your day.
Take these little steps and just take one step at a time, you only need to take the first step you don’t have to see the whole staircase.
You want to achieve your goals you need to start owning the day as much as you can, little by little taking control of the day and owning it.
Motivation comes from within and the more you believe in yourself the easier it becomes.
Every day it’s YOU v YOU, nobody else, and every day is a new opportunity to win.
Find the positives in any situation and your day will be better.
All we really have is now, so love hard, work your ass off, share how you feel, tell someone they are awesome, don’t be scared to try, you never know what tomorrow is going to bring, so why wait?
Life is too short ❤️ Anyway, that’s enough of my babble for one night and that concludes a Hat-Trick of posts for today 🤣

Much Love ❤️

One of the best things about running during the summer... #ukrunchat #running #run #bradgatepark #leicester
