In less than two weeks now, I'll be hobbling around NYC 😬 "Just" 13.2 chilly (aka perfect), windy miles today. The marathon itself is certainly a beast of its own, but also a celebration of the 4 months of hard work, time, and perseverance that came before those last 26.2 miles. The smiles at the finish line symbolize so much. It's exciting to be a part of it all. So while "just" 13 was a lot not that long ago, it's such a welcome number at this point 😂 I am as fit as I'll be for now. Time to just relax and enjoy the taper✌️it's all up to the mind now 🧠🧘🏃🏻‍♀️🤓 #marathontraining #marathonrunner #TCSNYCmarathon #marathonmom #motherrunner #oisellevolée #headupwingsout #oiselleteamdmv #momonamission #runyourworld #runhappy #runsmart #runblog #runchat #ihavearunnersbody #irunthisbody #liveeasyrunhard #positivemindset #positivevibes #dowhatmakesyouhappy #smile #irun #womensrunningcommunity #womenofrunning

Still on the bike and no running for me. Aber auch auf dem Rad lassen sich tolle Eindrücke sammeln. Hoffentlich geht es jetzt bald auch zu Fuß wieder los. #landscape #baldeneysee #beautiful #bike #offseason #alternativtraining #runsmart #mtb #comebacksoon #comebackstronger #newgoalsnextyear
#sundayrunday Had an amazing time at the @great_run South in Portsmouth today. The weather was nothing short of glorious and the event was really well organised. I felt fairly well recovered from last weekend’s half but I probably went off a touch quick and spent a lot of time dodging through the field a bit. The great support does give you a real lift though and I managed to get home in 1hour 22minutes and 2seconds. Which all things considered I’m pretty pleased with, first 10 mile event done! ✅ - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runfast #marathontraining #greatsouthrun #10miles

It’s a good treadmill run when you step outside and you’re steaming. A nice tempo in the middle of the run. Nice and slightly uncomfortable, how it should be😝. It’s more miles in the bank 🏃🏻‍♀️🏦 and I’m happy I got up for it. #womensrunningcommunity #laufen #inspiringwomenrunners #beatyesterday #canadianrunning #womenrunning #run #treadmill #runnerscommunity #runsmart #marathontraining #igrunners #runningmom #runlikeagirl #badassmotherrunner #trusttheprocess #nevergiveup
I’ve been working on building my speed and endurance the past few weeks. I am so proud of breaking my 11 min. pace and I have even had a few miles under 10. I am so thankful to my physical therapist for teaching me how to activate my glute muscles. This one change has changed the way I run and how I recover after a run. My knees no longer hurt and my hip flexors aren’t tight. I’m working on being a smarter and stronger runner. #motherrunner #runsmart

Good vibes, great course, and fantastic crowd support! @kcmarathon put on a super fun 13.1 this morning! A 2 minute PR for a 1:54 finish time was an added bonus! Catch me finding some fun trail to run the rest of fall racing season. #runkcm
Prepping for @great_run South tomorrow. No number at the moment as this was a last minute call to run so picking up pack first thing in the morning, got to early leave from Sutton. Hoping I can carry the high of last week’s @royalparkshalf into the run tomorrow. Am looking forward to hopefully catching up with a few people. Good luck to everyone that’s taking part, @themightysingh11 @willschmit @therunnerbeans @darrengoodley and all the others Runners taking part here and elsewhere. - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runfast #greatsouthrun #10miles #portsmouth
Thanks for a fun 13.1, KC! Also, thanks for the 1:54 PR 🏃🏼‍♀️❤️
🔉How often do you recommend doing these drills 🔺With my athletes we do these drills and others before every single run for a couple of different reasons. ◾️One, it helps you get into the routine of warming up before you run which we all know is significantly important. 🔺Two, when you do these before you run, you are creating that muscle memory and carrying that right into your run. So will you have more of an impact in your natural stride to improve without you having to think about it, which is really one of the only effective ways to change your stride for the better. ◾️We only do about 10-15 reps of each before each run so that way you are getting a large volume every week in your body without a heavy impact on your body. If we did an hour of drills before every run, you would be really sore after so we break it down into little bite size chunks that our body sees everyday. ❇️We hope you enjoyed each of these running drills and found this series helpful.
The fight for this awesome crab metal (that “cracks” open to show B-more’s skyline) is seriously real from my kiddos! • What’s also real were the rolling hills in this race! I’m happy with my time and felt super strong the whole race. Can’t complain about that! Conservative racing for the win! Now, may I have some post-race pizza please? • Special thanks to Team Valentine for coming out to cheer me on. Nothing like seeing my babies at mile 12.5 to help me tackle a strong finish. #baltrunfest #teamvalentineproject #backinaction #fightdisease #runsmart #runstrong
2hr Specific endurance run this morning. Finally getting my head around my pacing thanks to a great explanation from my coach Gary. Still a lot to do but after 2 1/2 years of chasing a pace to get faster, stronger and not embarrass myself, I am having to reset my thinking and my training. That’s where the expert comes in! His plan means I am adapting my pace and bringing it down on my long runs, to be able to sustain it over an ultra distance, while still getting stronger and feeing great. I’m not a very quick runner relatively, but it’s not as easy as it sounds when your head is stuck in a #pacewhore place 🤣. #ultratraining #runstrong #runspiration #run #trustyourcoach #running #runsmart #gothedistance

I stepped out the door and then I heard it. It was the sound I couldn't hear from inside... rain. Forecasting the weather is a guessing game. The rain was said to start a couple hours after my run. Oh well, I needed to get the miles done. Besides, it didn't really matter. My socks never get wet. 🤣 BTW The new Momentum vest from @ultraspire is about as close as I'll get to wearing one of those #crophops from my friends at @runinrabbit (swipe left)!! 😂🤣👨‍👧‍👧❤️👣🏃🏻🐰 #lunasandals #runfree #lunasandalsaffiliate #ultraspire #momentum #isoversa #inspiredbyathletes #immortalambassador #runsmart #runinrabbit #borntorunfree #bocolife #boconeckgaiter #nuunlife #running #minimalism #plantbased #grateful #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitlife #lifestyle #fit 👣👣👣 @lunasandals
Dzisiaj w Lublinie startuje kolejna edycja cyklu @citytrail . W związku z tym życzę powodzenia wszystkim startującym! Dzisiaj pogoda w sam raz na bieganie na tej trasie 👍🏻 Ja już jakiś czas temu podjąłem decyzję, że w tej edycji nie będę startował. Nie mam szczęścia do tej imprezy. W zeszłym roku zapisałem się z góry na cały cykl, a wystartowałem ledwie w jednym biegu. A to problemy zdrowotne, a to kontuzja, a to później złamany łokieć nie pozwoliły mi na więcej startów. Być może w tej edycji pojawię się na jednym biegu czysto treningowo, ale nie nastawiam się na to. Wszystko wyjdzie w praniu. A na razie walczę dalej z jakąś infekcją i czekam niecierpliwie na powrót do treningów 🏃🏻 📷 @piotrdymusphotography #lubelskibiegaczTEAM #running #polishrunner #runningman #runninginthecity #loverunning #runforfun #bieg #bieganie #biegacz #polskibiegacz #biegamwmiescie #runsmart
#saturdaymotivation It’s looking like it’s going to be a very different set of conditions tomorrow in Portsmouth for the @great_run South event than at last weekend’s @royalparkshalf. I’ve never actually ran a 10 mile event so will be a debut for me. I’ve had a fairly reasonable recovery week so hoping I’m fresh enough to put in a reasonable performance. Am really not sure on targets but think: A. 1:15 B. 1:25 C. Just have fun - Anyone got any tips for the great south run? Anything from course tips to parking please! - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runfast #marathontraining #greatsouthrun
I'm super excited to try out my new vest from @ultraspire ! The sensibly minimal Momentum uses the same honeycomb fabric utilized in my Iso Versa handheld. I'm stoked about that because my Iso Versa disappears when I'm running! It's super light and UltraBreathable making my hand feel naked! It leaves me wondering how the Momentum will leave me feeling. 🤔🤤😉 I'll let you know after I put some time in my #Momentum . Lastly, thanks to the #ultraspire team for the awesome swag so I can fly the flag.

So you’re considering stretching as an intervention to decreased extensibility in a given tissue, most famous would probably be the hamstrings. Let’s now consider why there might be a decrease in extensibility. To my knowledge we have 2 options. The tissues are either: 1️⃣short or 2️⃣tight A short muscle typically occurs after a period of several weeks or more of immobilization. In this case, the tissues have physically changed, structurally becoming shorter. Thus, limiting its extensibility. In this case we need to hang out in a lengthened position (read stretching) for long durations to make the tissue longer again. A tight muscle is less about its structure being physically shortened, but more about the nervous system putting on the breaks or creating a perception of stretch prior to the actual end range of motion. In my experience, this occurs in those that are lacking strength and/or control in a particular position or in the bendy people, such as yogis, dancers, etc. In this case stretching will work to improve motion...but its only a TEMPORARY fix as it doesn’t address the actual cause of the tightness. I’m sure you all know someone who stretches a lot yet still not flexible in a particular direction. I used to be one of them. In this case, stretching is less indicated and the focus should be on well programmed strength and motor control work, particularly through a full range of motion. It will have longer effects and increase tissue resiliency against injury. Ultimately a win-win!
🔉To reiterate, in the part of your stride when you come forward to reach the next step, a lot of people are too tense in their calf, leg, and foot when they strike. So they are almost flexing in the ankle when they land. This leads to a myriad of problems. 🔺We are trying to teach that when the foot comes up, it’s just a dummy from the knee down because the quad and the knee are really driving everything and the foot just follows the lead. So with your natural stride your leg is going to flip out a little before it hits the ground. So we are trying to train your mind that it is ok to do that.

As I look ahead to 2019 and think about what challenges await I have looked back across this year. I have had some fantastic achievements and probably the biggest 2 are: ➡️ sub 24 minute 5K ➡️ 2hr 1 min half marathon The sub 2hr half was so close. I ran well at Liverpool, it was hot but I survived and felt good. As I crossed the finish line I was gutted that I was so close but still a massive improvement from other half’s. Then later on that day I find that the half was measured 400 meters short and my time would not count. It was adjusted to 2hrs 4 and I felt robbed. I have ran a half since at sunny Liverpool R&R but failed big time, the heat taken a massive toll. There are no more half’s for me this year, but not quite sure what next year has in store yet. My focus at the moment is on my family and then just keeping up with training. This weeks holiday will be a week of body abuse...drink, and just having a good time. When I get home next week I’ll get back on the training regime. Hope you all have a great weekend and those running parkrun or races, I hope you have a good one. Stay strong, run safe 👍💪 . #friyay #friyayvibes #halfmarathontraining #marathontraining #fitness #fitnessjourney #improvement #lovetorun #inspireothers #lookingback #run #runner #instarunning #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #selfie #medal #racebling #racereview #loveyourself #thisdadcanrun #thisdadruns #dadbod #runhappy #runsmart #lovetorun #lovetoshare
“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” Theodore Roosevelt I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into training for my first Marathon in the spring and embracing what is sure to my biggest physical challenge yet. My performance at the @royalparkshalf gives me some confidence that I can step up but I am looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone again. - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runfast #marathontraining

Road trip to Canada for a conference. Time to get real smart and play in the mountains. And not meet any hungry bears. #runcoach #runsmart
🔉If you are still having trouble with the flick, don’t try to reach with your leg. You want to lift with your knee and then drive the knee down with the lower portion of your leg staying loose so it flips the foot up. So you can just practice driving the knee down so you can feel that flick at the end. 🔺This is an important drill to teach your muscles and your leg to land with a relaxed ankle and a relaxed lower leg. We see a lot of times that people land with a very stiff lower leg and stiff ankle which can lead to injury. By landing with a more relaxed foot and ankle you are allowing those muscles to take that force. ❇️Check back tomorrow to see, how this effects your stride!

#tbt what a difference two years makes.... #melbournemarathon 2016 (left). Had a sub 3.15 target but finished in a disappointing 3.28. It was a tough day, I put to much pressure on myself and didnt manage the weather conditions on the day well. The marathon broke me mentally that day.. Fast forward two years to #melbmara 2018, am smarter, braver, stronger.. and have redemption..... whilst my running ability has improved significantly, I still faced the same challenges as 2016, the pressure of self expectations plus some tricky weather conditions. I went in relaxed and accepting of the weather with the attitude of whatever will be will be.. whilst not the perfect race, mentally I was the winner and have my first sub 3 result to show for it. Whilst we will all be incredibly disappointed with our performances and results from time to time, there is always going to be another #marathon it's just up to ourselves and how much we really want it.. . . . . #garminau #beatyesterday #marathonrunner #instarunners #instarunner #wearetherunners #runnerslife #runninglife #runnersofinstagram #australianinstarunners #runningfervor #runningplanet #runhappy #happyrunner #runsmart #runbrave #runtough
55’ moderate run this morning, followed by core strength Swiss ball routine. I have been part of the #runstrong pack for nearly 6 weeks now & the improvements in every area are starting show. My pace felt quick today, but not hard. Without trying to..... I PB’d on my 10k time - got my sub 50’ - which is a real win!

#throwbackthursday To the day a Tailor had no idea how he was going to make a suit big enough! 🤣 - He wouldn’t have quite the same issue now and for the record he did make a suit but it wasn’t great. I tried to get a suit on the cheap but cutting corners got me poor results. Training is a lot like that, what you get out is proportional to what goes in.

Starting to really understand how to use the foam roller and the trigger points for fasciitis. I have never really understood how to use it properly and I just rolled back and forth thinking that was it. Apparently, foam rolling is an art and not too easy to do. However, I have time to get better at it and understand what I am doing! As Scott Jurek would say "Injuries are our best teachers". I can't wait to freely run again!🏃‍♀️😄 But in the meantime keep rolling rolling rolling.... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #run #running #runsmart #runstrong #bruisedknee #recovery #plantarfasciitis #sports #veganrunner #nomeatathlete #vegan #plantbased #motivation #adaptingtochanges #corrermola #corredora #nopiensescorre #suisse #switzerland #instadiary #igrunners #runhappy #smile #injuries #strongisthenewskinny #gym #runhappy #quoteoftheday #foamrolling #foamroller #selfie
Why might stretching and mobility not offer much for runners? Running is predominantly a mid-range activity as the picture states. In order to run... 1️⃣We don’t have to be able to touch our toes. 2️⃣We don’t have to be able to do the splits. 3️⃣And we certainly don’t need to bend over backwards, sideways, or any other way bendy people can bend. What we need to be able to do is... 1️⃣Hop from one foot to the next 2️⃣Perform #1 repetitively for extended periods 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ In order to hop from foot to foot repetitively we need 3 things: 1️⃣Strength 2️⃣Power 3️⃣Endurance 🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♀️🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♀️ Maybe if we don’t need to be flexible and if stretching doesn’t decrease our injury risk, then maybe our time could be spent on other things that are more pertinent to our performance and injury prevention? Think about it...

#wednesdaywisdom I am trying to stick to including some weight training in my schedule. It’s funny I used to love weights and avoid the cardio but these days it’s the other way round. However the benefits of a balanced regime are undeniable and injury prevention is high up on that list. I am tending to do an all round routine that hits the major muscle groups and includes some good core work. - Do you include weights in your weekly routine and why? - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runfast #marathontraining

Let’s be real. Stretching and mobility work feels good. What else does it do? 1️⃣Improve our range of motion and mobility 2️⃣Decrease muscle soreness (foam rolling only, not stretching) However, that’s about all stretching and rolling will do. 🧘‍♂️🧘‍♀️ What it won’t do or at best is very unlikely to do: 1️⃣prevent injury 2️⃣improve performance...actually prolonged stretches can temporarily decrease performance 3️⃣Facilitate recovery or the rehab process (my opinion) 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ So why do we do it? As mentioned above it feels good. On top of that there are quick changes (albeit temporary) in motion and soreness. When something feels good and has quick changes it’s easy to utilize and think of it as effective. However, what it likely does is address symptoms more so than actual causes. Yes, presentations can include tightness, but we have to take it a step forward and critically think about why something is tight. Then consider stretching as a viable option because there are times it’s indicated. In our coming post on this topic we’ll discuss one additional reason stretching may not offer much for runners, short vs tight muscles, and then the importance of moving through a full range of motion to bring it full circle. 🗣 Disclaimer: I lead a mobility class at @burn1000usa. Come drop in if you want to know more. I love to teach!
Right after this photo was taken I had to stop my most anticipated run of the season early. I was so excited to finally run 23 miles...my longest run ever. Unfortunately, at mile 18, I had to pull off because I started limping from a stabbing pain in my lower back that was progressively getting worse throughout the run. Time for some active recovery/cross-training for the next few days. 🚴🏽‍♀️🏊‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️🛴 . . As runners, the hardest thing to do is to stop when something is wrong. But I didn’t quit; I made the smart decision. Limping through 5 more miles would have dug me into a deeper hole than I’m already in, and now I can confidently say that I will be back in a couple of days ready to crush training before @indymonumental and CIM.🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏽‍♀️ Oh, and thanks to @runraleigh for loosening up my locked-up back! 📸: @j.cuttphotography #runsmart #trainsmart #restday #headupwingsout #road2CIM #californiainternationalmarathon #oiselle #indymonumental
🔉The B-Skip is just the A-Skip, but you are driving the knee down and letting your foot kick out. The modified version simply takes the skipping element out of the drill. 🔺You do not need to lift your knee very high. The key points are the mantra we spoke of earlier in the series: knee up, toe up, heel up, and then let your foot come back next to your other foot. ◾️We like to picture it as if you had a foam roller in front you, and you are kicking that foot out to pull the foam roller toward you. Take a minute and pause, these do not have to be done fast. As you progress you can make the knee lift higher. ❇️Tomorrow we will share some more tips to help you master the B-Skip.
The biggest enemy of any runner is an injury. After my first half marathon I had IT Band Syndrome and it took me 3 months to fully recover. To avoid being side-lined again, I’ve had to learn how to train smarter. Want to know how I came back from my injury and how I’ve continued to train to avoid another?

Don't wanna sit around and wait, just hanging on a fantasy I'm tryna be the kind of person who creates an energy I hope I got the storm inside to maybe make a better me Some people chalk it up to fate, I don't believe in destiny I guess I had a spark inside I couldn't light when I was younger Often times, I think you really need to fight to find the hunger Lightning is the shine, but I, I've been working on the thunder. -K.Flay . . . Me singing to myself, pretending I’m a rapper on the treadmill as I cross an imaginary finish line, thanking the crowd on my win. 🔅 🔅 #ineedalife #allrightythen #womensrunningcommunity #laufen #inspiringwomenrunners #beatyesterday #canadianrunning #womenrunning #run #runnerscommunity #runsmart #marathontraining #igrunners #runningmom #runlikeagirl #badassmotherrunner #trusttheprocess #nevergiveup
#transformationtuesday When I started this running journey back in January I spent a lot of time measuring my success by weight loss. As time went on it has become more about the running itself. I had a series of goals in mind including running a sub 2 hour half marathon. At the Hackney half back in May I struggled after going off way too quick and if I’m honest was a little under prepared (though I had had fairly serious surgery on my arm just weeks before). What did happen though was that I learned a lot, I find it’s the hardest lessons that hit home the most. So in the run up to the @royalparkshalf this weekend I really focussed on my plan; food, pace, kit etc... whilst there is still loads of room for improvement I am well pleased to have executed that plan really well and not only got a PB but smashed through the 2 hour barrier! - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #runfast
Apparently KC drew the short straw for the third year in a row, as we have skipped Fall and gone straight to Winter. UGH! (There was snow falling last night, ffs). SO, make sure you’re prepared with the proper gear as you continue running into the New Year. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Avoid cotton…unless you’re a masochist. Instead, opt for synthetic fabrics that have moisture-wicking capabilities. Synthetic fabrics regulate air circulation and moisture on the skin, keeping you dry, warm and chafe-free (hopefully). 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Your muscles work better when they’re warm! A proper warm up is absolutely necessary prior to running in the cold. Do this to reduce any chance of injury. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Proper socks, such as Feetures or Injinji, are moisture-wicking and form fitting, preventing blisters. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Tights, pants, joggers - tights are great as a snug base layer aiding in chafe prevention. Depending on the weather conditions, you may just need shorts over those or you may need pants/joggers for more warmth. If you know you’re prone to chafing, using body glide or vaseline in those areas is suggested. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Long sleeve technical shirts are a great base layer for your trunk. Again, weather depending, you may need a shirt on top of the base layer or even a windbreaker of some sort to help maintain your core body temperature. Dress as if it’s 10-20 degrees warmer than the wind chill temperature. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Hats and gloves are important to protect your head and extremities. If it’s in the 40’s and sunny, you probably won’t need these. Below 40 degrees I’d highly suggest gloves and some type of head gear. Earmuffs, headband, beanie, balaclava, neck gaiter, scarf….individual preference. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Your body loses heat from any area that is not covered. If it’s windy and close to freezing, you could get “frost nip”; a mild form of frostbite. Frostbite happens when blood circulation is restricted in the extremities (Yikes!). Hypothermia is another fate to be aware of; this occurs when your core body temperature drops below 95 degrees. Be smart; don’t be a hero. 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏽‍♂️ Cont’d in comments...
