  • IT COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER BUT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT WORSE.

1 week out from my first ultra marathon @runequinox24 and I’m sitting and thinking about the good and the bad, the what ifs and what haves from the training I’ve done. 
Am I physically ready? Am I mentally ready?
My answer is I’ve done as close to my best I could have. Yes there is always room for more but I’ve ran miles on tired legs, I’ve ran countless hills, ran with a dodgy stomach and faced my biggest running fear which is running in the dark. 
I’m confident and excited but also scared to face the absolute unknown.
Next Saturday 21st at 12.30 when the siren goes off I’m sure I’ll truly find out what I’m made of over the following 24hrs. 
This week I have 2 maybe 3 steady, low mileage runs planned. 
There will be lots of protein and carbs consumed. Plans for the day written, scribbled out and re-written. Kit checked and then double checked.
My head will be fuzzy and feet itching to get going.

So for anyone taking on a challenge, it’s ok to feel scared but please have confidence and believe that you can achieve, I’m sure you will surprise yourself on the other side.

Big thank you to @kirky_99 @werliddells @japarker1981 for running mile after mile with me. I cannot wait to stand on the start line with you guys.

Special thank you to @pat_runs_everywhere for pushing me hard on every run.

The training is done and now we get ready for the big day. ✌️🤙

  • Big PB & Big girl shoes 🏃🏻‍♀️

Well training has definitely paid off. My #garmin definitely isn't lying when it says the runs I'm completing are beneficial! Unusually, I wasn't feeling #parkrun yesterday but of course I dragged my demotivated butt down anyway!
.
It didn't feel like a good run, I felt like I was holding back, my chest was a little tight and my breathing a little off. But somehow, I managed to knock nearly a whole minute off of my PB 😱 So, I'm now in the 22 club (just!). I'm not sure when it will sink in that I ran a sub 23 minute 5k. My goal this year was sub 25 and I have more than surpassed that now. I've even Impressed myself!
.
For now, strength, consistency and remembering to enjoy myself is the most important thing!
.
As for my little lady - She is growing UP! She's so close to walking, we thought she better get some shoes. Her feet are so tiny, so we were really limited in choice but fortunately @clarksshoes had these beautiful patent plum shoes. A little pricey, but as they are her first pair, it's important they fit just right!
.
As if she wasn't spoilt enough for the day, she had an early birthday present and she chose this banana rucky and matching lunchbox 🍌 from @soovalifestyle
.
She's already more confident whilst, not long now! 🖤

Disclaimer: I promise she is happy about the shoes, she's just ready for a nap here! 😂

  • Please take a close look at our New Church (1410-1430). It’s located right next to our former city hall built in 1648. Hard to imagine but the city hall was the biggest building of the whole world. Amsterdam wanted to show their capacity and worldwide presence by creating this building. The church got furious and went to the mayor. State over church was an absolute no go in their books. So the mayor made a promise. Now they ran out of budget. But in 20 years budget will come. Aa you can see on the pictures the foundation was already creates for that huge extra tower. The windows are blocked with bricks. In 20 years the budget did not come. The British fleet got stronger, our ships got wrecked and stocks got worthless. The end of our golden century. The church remained unfinished....

  • OUCH

Feeling aerobically strong until about ten mins from the end of this planned 1:45min run, but then I decided to can it early. My legs feel ‘rickety’ - it’s really hard to explain as they’re not heavy, they just feel like they need oiling 🤷🏼‍♂️. My right knee is now feeling a bit dodgy so some rest and stretching is in order.

  • Gestern hatte ich einen wunderschönen 6km-Lauf beim Engelhorn Sports Frauenlauf in Mannheim mit allen meinen liebsten Freunden. Gelaufen bin ich mit meiner Mutter, die ich sicher ins Ziel gebracht habe. Ich hatte viel Spaß - sie eher weniger 🤪 Noch zwei Wochen bis zum @berlinmarathon 💯 Zeit zum Tapering!

  • Some days you just have bad races and today was one of them 😭 All smiles before hand but I could tell as soon as I started my legs just felt heavy and slow and the knee was niggling already. Managed to run the majority of the first lap (of four) without walking, but then laps two and three felt very much the other way around. Lots of walking and not much running 😫 Much too hot and hilly for my little legs to handle today. Oh well. Swipe ➡️ for my half arsed attempt at a smile sitting at the finish 😬

P.s. is there such thing as an anti-PB?? If so I would have got one by a good 15 mins 🎉
