Yesterday’s activity. Got the dog out for a run. I’d read an article running with a dog that listed all the problems I’ve been having with Bowie when I’ve tried to run with her (sudden stops, dragging, yanking, being cut up). It recommended interval running, so we did a 2 mile / 20 min set of sprints, one minute running followed by one minute walking. She did really well on the first few sets but needed “encouragement” for the rest 😂🐺She’s so lazy for such a big girl!

Today has been pretty insane in the activity front - non stop on my feet from 9:15am to 2:45pm, then straight into a 1 hour dog walk when home. A bit of chill time and a lesson before the bedtime routine and then down the gym for a push and legs session and 2 miles on the treadmill. I’ve been adding 2 miles to the end of my weights’ sessions at the gym to add to my weekly mileage and add a bit of cardio to my workout. It’s an extra 15/16 mins but will hopefully help the pre-Christmas shred. No food photos again as lunch was just picking at the Christmas dinner, mostly turkey breast meat, cocktail sausages, carrots and broccoli plus a few roasties, pudding of two Christmas tree choc ices. No tea as I’m really fed up of looking at fold at this point, but I’ve had some clementines and dark chocolate and just waiting to put a bread loaf in the oven so will have a slice of that with butter when cooked. Also - sign up for stem/bone marrow donation if you can! @dkms_uk #activity #walking #dogwalk #workout #gym #gymsession #gymlife #gymgirl #girlswholift #liftlikeagirl #weights #weightlifting #lifting #running #runlikeagirl #girlswhorun #marathon #marathontraining #blackpoolmarathon #caloriecounting #fitness #fitnessjourney #healthyfood #healthyeating #noexcuses #strong #thisgirlcan #trainlikeagirl #legday #pushday
Thought I get the old and the new together. 2002-04 & 2018. Marathon, half marathon, 10 Mile and 10k medals. One more 10Mile race to come this year. Looking forward to adding to this in 2019. #fvspartans #fairlandsvalleyspartans #runningformind #runnersofinstagram #run #running #runningformindcharity #running1000miles #runningdad #runnin #robinhoodhalfmarathon #readinghalfmarathon #asics #blackpoolmarathon #blackpoolhalfmarathon #warejoggers #10mile #10k #runningmedals #runningbling
Evening run done! I so very nearly didn’t go out. I made the bed in the spare room where I’d already gotten my running gear out but was so tempted to throw on PJs. Got myself out of the house before I could properly give in. It’s cold and dark and wet, but it’s not going to get any better for the next 4 months or so, so just had to buckle down. So pleased I did as I felt really good and did 5 miles around the town. Compression sleeves for the win! And being a @tikiboofitness mermaid helped 🧜🏼‍♀️ #run #running #runlikeagirl #girlswhorun #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #workout #runningworkout #marathon #marathontraining #blackpoolmarathon #blackpoolmarathon2019 #tikiboo #zeropoint #compressionsleeves #strava #splits #nightrunning #training #5miles #5milerun
Just entered the bestie into Blackpool marathon next year 😎 Happy birthday @slug056 😛 P.s I did enter myself aswell haha. #running #run #runner #runners #blackpoolmarathon #marathon #marathontraining #bestfriend #bestfriendgoals #birthday #birthdaypresent #getrunning
First proper run out in two weeks! I was aiming for 4 miles and managed 4, so really pleased. Very steady but the legs are feeling much better for having a couple of weeks off. I’m planning on a couple of weeks now of just easing back into it slowly, couple of week day runs with a longer one on the weekend, and then starting marathon training lite for Blackpool on the 19th. I was really hoping to see a load of beautiful fireworks on my nighttime run tonight, but although there were loads of bangs and loads of smoke, hardly saw any! #run #runlikeagirl #running #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #girlswhorun #4miles #4milerun #strava #blackpoolmarathon #blackpoolmarathon2019 #marathon #marathontraining #bonfirenight #fireworks #training #workout #trainingrun #fitbit #fitness #fitnessjourney #noexcuses #strong #mondayrunday
Blackpool Marathon 2016 - I led for a glorious 400 meters before slowing to take in the magical sights and to take selfies with the fairytale horses on the sea front. Viva Black-Vegas...Chapter 85 of How Not to Run 100 Marathons - see link in bio. #blackpoolmarathon #blackpool #uk #100marathonclub #100marathon #runnersofinstagram #marathontraining #marathon #running #run #fitness #fitnessmotivation #nopainnogain
So today was a race that did not go well at all. Note to self, two half marathons and one 5k in the space of three weeks really, really isn’t a good idea 😅🙈 It was going ok, not great, but just about managing to keep my pace around 9:00 until I hit mile 10 and my legs just left the party. Had to walk most of the last 3 miles back and ended up finishing with a 2:16 time - my worst half marathon ever! But it was sunny, my legs are not completely dead this evening (I think it was sensible to stop and walk so as not to injure myself) and it means I can get back to running for a fun for a little while. Until marathon training starts after Christmas at least! 😱🏃🏻‍♀️ Next spring I’m planning on going for the Blackpool Marathon at the end of April and the Hampton Court Palace Half in mid March. #run #running #race #raceday #racing #runlikeagirl #girlswhorun #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathoner #marathon #marathontraining #epworthhalfmarathon #isleofaxholmehalfmarathon #blackpoolmarathon #hamptoncourthalf #fitness #fitnessjourney #runnersofinstagram #runner #consistency #consistencyiskey #noexcuses #strong #noinjuries #strava #fitbit
And the winner is...... Blackpool Marathon! Thank you to everyone who participated in helping make the decision 🙌🏻 #blackpoolmarathon #marathontraining #marathonrunner #fitforflorida
Next marathon entered. #blackpoolmarathon #bulkoverchristmas
In April 2018 I said I’ve never do another marathon I’ve done one why would I need to do another? Fast forward 6 months and I’ve just entered another one 😱 it’s not London but it does have a tower 🤣 Blackpool I’m coming for you. @h.green14 let’s do this 😘 #blackpoolmarathon #bodymagic
So today the #berlinmarathon medal joined the others in the bag in the sock drawer. Ninth #marathon has been run and the question is where shall number 10 be? Pretty certain the answer to that question is @lochnessmarathon in 2020. #running #runner #runnersofinstagram #runningman #marathonrunner #runningevent #abbotworldmarathonmajors #garminUK #garmin #lochness #manchestermarathon #londonmarathon #brightonmarathon #blackpoolmarathon #bristoltobathmarathon2015 #berlin2018 #medalmonday #medal #runningbling #runnersbling

#throwbackthursday pic on the left is from #blackpoolmarathon back in 2012 where I ran 3hr 1min... gutted for weeks for not going sub 3hrs and even stopped running for 3 months!! Pic on the right is from #boltonhillmarathon two weeks ago where I ran 3hr 27min on a very opposite of flat course!! 6 years apart and still loving it! So glad I managed to change my mind set from fixating on times to just getting out a running against myself and the trail.. #runningman #runnerscommunity #fitness #instagood #ultrarunning #marathontraining #running @this_dad_runs_tdr #thisdadruns
😂 Definitely me at all my race's this year and last year so much respect for my fellow runners who have said HI and stopped for pictures. 🐲 👊 To anyone who I meet over the next few months with more crazy races #running #runningcommunity #runner #goku #trailrunning #trailrunner #marathon #marathontraining #snowdonia #snowden #blackpoolmarathon #liverpoolmarathon #manchestermarathon #mkmarathon #derbyhalfmarathon #yorkmarathon #snowdeontrailmarathin #brightonmarathon #edinburghmarathon #southamptonmarathon #hullmarathon
@carnebargrill was an incredible discovery in #Blackpool ! We had just about given up on finding food of this quality during our stay but on the last evening, we dined at this establishment and were treated to a fine array of burgers with incredible toppings, high quality meat and fully loaded and topped fries! They also had some amazing beers and cocktails to wash down the insanely succulent meaty goodness! It’s all fine dressing up a burger with toppings but if the actual burger isn’t a high quality, there is no point and ‘Carne’ ticked the boxes when it came to patties! We had meat sweats for dessert....standard! . . . . . . . #FoodBloggers #InstaFood #FoodDiary #MeatsAndCheats #Foodie #FoodLovers #Blogger #FoodsofInstagram #FoodLovers #FoodDiary #FoodInspo #FoodPorn #CheatingAintEasy #carnébarandgrill #blackpooltower #blackpoolmarathon #CheatDay #foodstagram

And so it happened that I ran my 20th Parkrun today, my 12th at Shrewsbury, at the age of 55. I have missed running here so much with 2 Marathons to train for. No PB, less than a week after London, but still sub 30, so pretty chuffed with that! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ We had a great photoshoot for all us recent Marathoners, before we started and remembered @mattsoire and a Shrewsbury Parkrun runner who has also sadly died - 📷 credit @advance2contact 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ I have made so many friends here and I am grateful for the support that I have received. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ Also extremely grateful to @rikroadrunner and @oliblake88 for the training, core work, treatment and general support and advice that got me though these 2 Marathons, especially London. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ Thanks, I think, to @jenniehesketh for my birthday shout-out from the Race Director - #revengeisbestservedcold Hesketh!!! and to @i_just_kept_on_running for his kind words. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ Thanks to all of the volunteers that make #shrewsburyparkrun and every other Parkrun happen. #awesome 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ Purpose of the post....if I can anyone can. 2.5 years ago, I was over 3 stone heavier and couldn't run to catch a bus. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ #shrewsburyparkrun #parkrun #parkrunuk #finishformatt #milesformatt #c25k #couchto5k #10k #13 .1 #26 .2 #marathoner #vlm2018 #virginlondonmarathon #asicsmanchestermarathon #blackpoolmarathon #thisoldgirl #thisoldgirlcan #thisoldgirlcanrun #ificananyonecan #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid

‪Huge Congratulations to Conor, Ray & Austin who smashed all 26.2 miles of the #BlackpoolMarathon at the weekend!!!! https://t.co/izJucyATs6 Thank you so much! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 #SuperJosh
My attempt at the #BlackpoolMarathon . After pulling out of @londonmarathon with 2 weeks to go due to an array of niggles, I decided to give Blackpool a go. I went out with the intention of running 6:15s for as long as the legs would allow. I lead from the start and reached mile 15 in first place averaging 6:08min/mile but it was taking it's toll. I slowed from 6:16-6:50 over the next 5 miles and decided to call it a day before running the risk of injury. In hindsight I probably could and should have carried on, a PB was on the cards after all, and my legs have felt in a much worse state before...the mind just wanted to call it a day! Seeing the conditions in London, I had it easy in the wind & rain but definitely made the right choice withdrawing, I'll be back next year. Big kudos to everyone that gave 26.2 a go 🏃🏼‍♂️🏃‍♀️🥇

Preparation for Ironman Frankfurt is coming on nicely 😁 Managed to finish Blackpool Marathon in a steady sub 4 hour with 100 miles in the legs (in the last 3 days) from cycling. #ironmantraining #ironmanfrankfurt #marathon #training #blackpoolmarathon
Ran my 96th marathon at Blackpool today in 4:28:41. I was hoping to sub-4 it but this was hampered by the weather and the fact I had run 3 races yesterday causing my legs to give in at mile 19. . . On a positive note that’s 36.75 miles run this weekend at an average pace of 9.55 minutes per mile and my knee held up, only giving me the odd twinge of pain. Roll on Stirling Marathon next weekend! 👹 . . #blackpoolmarathon #blackpoolmarathon2018 #blackpoolmarathonfestival #blackpool10k #blackpool5k #blackpool2k18 #backtobackraces #runalltheraces #medalmonday #runnersofinstagram #runstagram #fourmedalweekend #marathons #100marathonclub #marathon #plantpoweredrunner

Here’s what’s left of my bum bug. It’s had a good life. It started falling apart at mile 21 so I ripped the straps of and wedged it down my shorts. Right cheek worked better than left. So now it really is just a bum bag. #blackpoolmarathon
Hats off to all the London & Blackpool Marathon Runners today! #blackpool #blackpoolmarathon #london #londonmarathon
Hard day today, brings the curtain down on the bulk of my 10 in 10 training. Less than 3 weeks until I run my first of 10 laps of Windermere Marathon in 10 days to support the Brathay Trust. #wakemeupwhenitsallover #brathay10in10 #brathayrunning #ukrunchat #running #blackpoolmarathon #fishfingers #flydecoastrunners
