TGIF ☆ Bank holiday weekend 😁
*
I've had no motivation to run this weekend at all and I don't intend to do much this weekend either!
*
I did do a short run at lunch today though.
*
I'm just going to eat and drink lots this weekend just like the last bank holiday weekend 😊
*
Roll on another BBQ! 🔥

Words can no describe my thoughts tonight.
.
Tonight i received this. I am not sure why, but i am totally overwhelmed by it.
.
@jayz_runs_and_cooks & @chris_x_runs bought me this. For no reason. Nothing in return. JUST THROUGH PURE KINDESS.
.
i dont deserve it but i am forever grateful for such an act of kidness.
.
I walked back with it after a couple of beers and welled up. If you know me you know i dont always show my emotions other than excitement. Tonight i did.
.
Boys thank you so much and can not wait for more hugs from you. Jon and Chris ♥ .
I needed this so much ♥ you have restored my faith in humankind and just shows that men do support women too... .

My wife suggested signing me up for #vitality10000 as I way to get me running again, as I was scarred from London Marathon 2017 and she knew I needed a goal to train towards.
.

After Monday I need a new goal, and therefore a new training schedule. I want to in good shape both physically and mentally to go for my elusive sub 4 hour marathon hopefully for #londonmarathon2019 .
.

Does anyone have any advice, tips, suggestions as to how I should train effectively, or does it not really matter as long as I’m running any distances regularly?

That feeling when you realise it’s a 3 day weekend. What’s everyone’s running plans?

Great work from my boys this morning. It was such a success Charlie almost cracked a smile in our group photo 😉 It was the first time he’s been under 30mins for ages. He tried to keep up with me during his last km. George got another new 5k PB and is close to getting under the 25min mark. Malachy did 6.5k as he has some long races coming up. The consistency in their training is paying off. I couldn’t be prouder of them. I had a moment this morning of feeling proud of myself too when I put on my @londonmarathon rejection jacket. I was upset when I didn’t get a ballot place because I badly wanted to do it so I looked into other ways into it and saw I could qualify for a championship place through a half marathon time. I found a half marathon, signed up and qualified! I’m proud of my determination to get there especially as I got injured in the lead up to it. I’m now the proud owner of a #vlm2018 finishers tshirt and a @bostonmarathon qualifier! #nevergiveup #bostonqualifier #bostonmarathon #bostonbound #6amclub #runningfamily #runningkids #determination #runhappy #everyrunisablessing #berlinmarathon #runner #run #running #ukrunchat #runchat #womensrunning #runnerscommunity #recovertorun #anorexiarecovery #edrecovery #womensrunningcommunity #runningislife #marathontraining #marathon

THEY GO HAND IN HAND
Ive struggled with food affecting my body for a while. The sinus infections, eye bags, ibs etc. Since removing the foods which cause me the most issues I have felt 10x better. The bloat is gone, my moods are better, no more stomach or sinus problems ,more energy and generally happier. You see it is a viscous circle. There is so much in the media re sugar being bad, this diet and that diet, pesticides on fruit and veg, organic foods etc no wonder people get confused. The more research I have done on the foods, reading etc the more I have realized there is a lot the media and the big meat and dairy associations don’t want you to know. (That’s another story) I’m not here to rant, you can do your own research and make your own minds up. Exercise on the other hand is something that really makes you feel amazing, changes your body, outlook to life, shape and mood. The benefits are endless. It then becomes something you want to keep up, setting goals then new ones again to see what your body is capable of doing. The clothes fitting well, less lumps and bumps also make you feel 10x better 😉🍑

How was this over a month ago? Priorities straight after @londonmarathon 🍻 and celebrations with a few of the nearest and dearest. What. A. Day. 🏃‍♂️🥇☀️ ———————————————

*DING DONG GIRL
@sharonbrooks1 you make me proud. Let’s keep this up! A year training together and what a pleasure it has been. From the last video where we had to strengthen your back, shoulders and develop from rotator cuff tear, to building strength in your upper body and being able to do wall push ups and normal push ups. Soooo happy with your progress!!

Three consecutive runs of London Marathon now completed. I echo what everyone else has said about the brutal heat of the day - it was unbearable! 😖 I definitely could not perform to my capabilities due to a torn MPFL ligament affecting my left knee (due for surgery in 4 days!) and a right knee hoffa fat pad impingement, but every marathon experience is one to learn from. Congratulations to all of my fellow VLM 2018 runners on a job well done! AP XO 🏃🏻‍♀️🏅🤕🤕🤢😫🤯 #instarunners #marathon #vlm2018 #vmlm2018

Perfect day for a lovely run! First pain free run since the marathon 😀 #running #vlm2018 #vlmrecovery #lovewhereirun #perfectrunningweather

What a difference this run was to the last 😱
.
I was meant to run 18 miles at 8mm pace (goal pace for Bournemouth) but it all went tits up 🙄.
.
It may look ok, 17 miles at 8:31 pace is pretty decent but it was more like 6 little runs bodged together as I kept stopping to sulk. This is a picture of me under a bridge...sulking. I convinced myself to get to 9miles then I would stop for a sulk 😂 By time I got to mile 17, I had had enough so I binned off that last mile.
.
I have 101 excuses for that run. Anyone want to hear them?? No...I didn’t think so. So this run goes in the bin 🖕and I move on to the next..... #itdoesntalwaysgotoplan #shiterun #sulkybitch #salomon #vlm2018 #timetoplay #trailrunning #loverunning #runner #northdevon #lovewhereilive #braunton #marathontraining #thisoldladyruns #runnersofinstagram #stravawhore #runner #instarunners #trailrunner #lonelygoat #runningsolo #mountainhardwear #nosweatoutdoors #medalwhore #fitnotskinny #amibraveenoughtodoanultra?#londonmarathon2018 #woolacombemarathon2018 #bournemouthmarathon2018

See you next year Gothenburg Half Marathon 😱🤷‍♂️🏃🏼‍♂️🍻. I said that was it for me last Saturday but I feel I’ve got some unfinished business to sort out. Gothenburg Marathon 2021 sorted also 🙈😎, Gothenburg turns 400 years old in 2021 and to celebrate this Gothenburg will hold a Marathon in September which will be two laps 👍🏻. I’ve decided to enter this as it will also mark my 20 years of living in Gothenburg ❤️. Illness is just a word , I will continue to run no matter what xxxx sorry for the long post. #gothenburg #teamFreyaBrianvlm18brtuk #londonmarathon #vlm2018 #göteborgsvarvet #stockholmmarathon #JönköpingHalvmarathon #marathon #running #runhappy #asicsfrontrunner #saucony #inspirationalrunners #springigbg #halfmarathon #loverunning #runnersworld #runshots #brainresearch #charity #charityrunner #psoriaticarthritis #psoriasis
