All you runners, what do you think: start with shorter jog/walk intervals or better longer ones (not to stop too often)? 📋

What a weekend of running that was. As well as new fastest marathon times set, my timeline was FILLED with race activity. Well done to all who took part in any race, from Chicago Marathon, to Autumn 100, to Manchester Half, Oxford Half & Birmingham Half ... loads of half marathons actually. Well done all. You lot are SO INSPIRING! 🌟🌟🌟 here is my humble effort for the Sunday @royalparkshalf 📸 @hazpicss
This weekend Eliud Kipchoge did something that a lot of people once thought was physiologically impossible: run a full marathon in less than 2 hours.
To give you some context on the achievement we've plotted every single finisher of the Boston Marathon 2017.
As well as being the world's oldest annual marathon, the Boston Marathon field is arguably one of the most elite. To get to run in the event you usually have to qualify by submitting a time from a previous race you've done. Even within that elite field, fewer than 6% of the field crossed the line in sub 3 hours.
To run sub 2 hours, Kipchoge had to average more than 21kmh (13mph). Most standard treadmills don't even let people go up to that speed.
Despite the incredible feat, his achievement wasn't in an official race which means it doesn't actually count as a new world record. That's unlike Brigid Kosgei who yesterday actually did break the women's marathon record with a time of just over 2 hours and 14 minutes.
As well as giving some context to those ridiculous times we also love this data for the cluster of people who must have sprinted to just finish under the 4 hour mark!

I had a happy 6k run at lunchtime and can report that the toes and knee were feeling up to it. -
I was pretty breathless throughout though, not sure why exactly, but I definitely feel less fit than I did before the marathon. -
I was wondering if it was the effects of post-marathon fatigue or the fact I hadn’t exercised much over the last couple of weeks because of my toe and knee incidents. -
Then I factored in three late nights of Prosecco-fuelled partying and I think I have my answer. 🤔😂-
I am so glad that 80s Throwback cruise festival was planned for after the marathon and not before! 🙏😱
I have a holiday next week with hubby and little by little will be returning to training with a few motivating race goals for next year! They all involve mountains and beautiful scenery and I am beyond thrilled that the training this year led me to complete my first marathon and thus allowed me to pen these races into my actual training plan instead of just staying dream-like fantasies in my head. -
The first race is in March in the Cèvennes Mountains (I went to that area not long ago & posted about it - the Mer des Rochers run in Sauve is in the same region). -
It is 23k with 1,000m elevation gain,
spectacular views and familiar terrain. -
I hope this goal will help to get me in shape for the next, longer trail event in April, but I will post about that later. -
It should give me enough motivation to see me through training on cold and dark mornings and late at night.
These race plans for next year were my “why” in the marathon and they pushed me over the finish line. It still feels slightly unusual to feel so motivated by having goals that are tough physical challenges, but there’s no better feeling than running strong and free in the mountains and it is absolutely worth training for - and then some. - 🤞🙌🏃♀️⛰ -
Anyone else a complete cheese ball? Just me?
Anyway, I’m gearing up to start running for the first time since having kids 😳
Lots of pelvic floor and TA work plus I’m adding cardio into my exercise routine to increase cardiovascular endurance.
I’m also changing up my supplement game. Swipe to see my new go-tos while I’m running.
Great for energy, muscle endurance, recovery, inflammation, discomfort, blood sugar regulation, and it will help with some cravings😆
I’ve got one more huge discount code for anyone that wants to give this combo a go with me.

“Reverse tapering”- it isn’t the impressive long runs or the fast speed workouts. It’s short and easy runs only. Mileage a mere shadow of what it was a few weeks ago. Extra rest days. 😴 Lightly bringing strength training back into the routine. 💪 This is the recovery and rebuilding phase. 🌟 It is just as important as the other parts of a training cycle. Patience is queen. 👑 No comparing to others and what they are doing with their training (which I don’t ever anyway bc it can be v. deceiving & just bc something is right for one person doesn’t mean it’s right for you, plus you don’t really even know if it’s right for them anyway!) Trusting the process, trusting my unique journey and plan for me. 💯
Each little run right now is an opportunity to check in with my body and analyze how it’s feeling. A plan is in place but flexibility and adaptability are crucial, perhaps now more than ever for me personally.
As always, each day is a gift. 🎁 There is no destination, it’s the journey that is rewarding when you truly LOVE the process.
