We had a great training today with our running group #athleticpoint . First some warming up and core training. After that the protocol of the day. 2 times an interval of 400m/600m/800m with 100m in between. This was my first training with my new Polar Vantage V. Still have to get used to it. Still have to get used to polar flow. I cannot find all the data yet. Should be alot of info which I can analyse. . . But most important. No pains. I had my last session of physiotherapy yesterday and do not have any appointments anymore. . . #interval #training #runners #runner #running #run2run #happyrunning #healthyrunning #runningguy #happyrunner #instarunner #instarun #igrunners #hardlopen #hardlopenisleuk #runstagram #addictedtorunning #runningaddict #runtoinspire #iloverunning #runnersofinstagram #runisfun #PolarVantageV #brooksrunner #runsmart #PolarRunning #BloodSweatAndData #DreamsAndGoals
Finished our little SYDNEY staycation by a city run with @sallyletsrun and @mjcwilko . Now back to the Bondi bubble to try out @macelleria_australia first ever breakfast. They are open for breakfast Saturday & Sunday 8-11am. Can’t wait 😋 #sydney #staycations
“One of the first things that I think about winter training is increased risk for injury." During our team call this week, Jared shared a ton of fantastic advice on how to avoid injury and how to stay motivated in the cold weather. Below are just a few summarized highlights from what he taught the team. ✔Slow down! Have the mindset in the winter of getting the mileage in. When it's cold and dark and slippery, just slow down and get the mileage in." ✔Take advantage of this time of year and spend a little extra time in the gym strengthening your hamstrings and core. Learn to love nordic curls! (more on those to come) ✔When your muscles are cold, be patient. Take a hot shower or bath before getting out the door and don't worry about taking a longer warm-up. ✔Be smart, stay safe, and keep on running!

And today I visited Coolblue to get my reserved Polar Vantage V. My first impression is WOW but some things are not working yet how it should work. Example my bike speed and cadence sensor from Trek can be paired over BLE but the registration of data is none. I knew this beforehand. Polar is updating their firmware frequently. . . Tomorrow I will run my first training with my running group with this watch. So I am really curious about the results. . . #runbynumbers #runningdata #runbydata #polarvantagev #polarvantageseries #vantagev #sportswatch #runner #cyclist #polar #runnerswatch #runsmart #PolarRunning #BloodSweatAndData #DreamsAndGoals

Cool rainy easy. Occasionally slippery. Mostly unpleasant. 🤣 Got it done tho.
Well the calves don’t feel as bad as I thought they would this morning after yesterday’s blood lactate retest! Great news. I may be getting out there for a little frosty plod at some point today. Loved yesterday. I cannot wait to get my results so I can see how they compare to my original test back in June, and then start to apply the data to my training. Running smart is the only way to A) stay injury-free and B) improve your fitness.

Sep- Dec is the most stressful time of the year for me. It's mentally draining, and in turn I tend to spend a lot of time neglecting my physical well-being just trying to keep up with all the craziness associated with work. Thankfully there's an end in sight. #downbutnotout #mobilitywork #psoasrelease
Knowledge is power. And meant to be shared. Blessed to have the opportunity to present on running biomechanics, injury prevention and prehab training to all the attendees at the @liftrunperfrom running retreat.

WEST JUNGLE WILL ANNIHILATE YOU! 7 empty treadmills and nobody wants to get on one until I get on. So an easy warmup before strength became an outlasting ass kicking. Don’t let these big legs fool you, they are indeed built for endurance and a bit of speed. I’m a marathoner; I LOVE intentional pain. I take great glee in racing you on the mill, besting you. Sure enough I outlasted all. Watch this victory march!#blackgirlmagic #fitmum #runsmart #blackgirlsrun #runner #marathoner #runningcoach #617bostonrunner
#Running is #mytherapy , not just for a #workout . It allows me to clear my head and decompress, at least most days it does. I am finally able to get some reading done and decided to tackle "Born To Run" and this quote IMO hit it right on the head. We run when we are scared, when we are happy, away from our problems and maybe in some insane way run to our problems.

Where are you running this weekend? . @jaybirdsport . Photography: @mjcwilko
An awesome morning at the Human Performance Unit. The sports scientists putting me through my Performance Community blood lactate retest. My initial test was back in June. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if my fitness level has dropped a little since then as my first test was fresh off the back of @londonmarathon training. That isn’t the point though. The idea behind the lactate assessment is to get a baseline of fitness. I need to know where I am so then I will know what areas I have to work on to be ready for @manchestermarathon in April. This is not a scary fitness test that is only for the brave hardy runner. This is for everyone. Planning a race in 2019? Then don’t guess what work you have to do... let’s find out. Drop me a message to find out how you can be part the Running with Jake Performance Community sponsored by @thederbyrunner , and let’s make your next race your best race. 🏃🏼‍♀️🥇🏃🏾‍♂️ #runwithscience #performancecommunity #lactatetesting #runninggoals #nomoreguesswork #runsmart #marathontraining #instarunner #runningperformance #athletetesting #physiology #sportscience #runtoinspire #racegoals #2019goals #runfast #ukrunchat @on_running #personalbest #timetorun #wintertraining
Not mastered selfies yet, but can snap my feet. Getting colder but still fine for shorts in Nottingham 👍 Didn't keep much of an eye on pace tonight while trying to follow cues to run upright and lead with the hips. Looking at the stats I increased my stride length and dropped my cadence so not good for that cue. Trying to do 4 things at the same time as running is hard work! #ukrunchat  #ukrunning  #ukrunner  #running  #runner  #run  #instarun  #instarunners #runnerscommunity  #runlife  #igrunners  #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #runsmart #ukrunners #training #stravarun
This guy. Fun loving, goofy as hell. Got me started running cross country back in 1999. Now, nearly 20 years later, he has me convinced I should run a marathon.
This run was so needed to clear my mind. No music, just running and my thoughts. I'm dealing with anxieties since I'm little and it breaks my heart to see my 4 year old daughter starts to be anxious as well. She has a little Christmas performance next week at preschool (just singing a few songs and if she wants to a solo, but she doesn't have to) and she is so scared that she cries at least once a day. Not sure how to help her to feel better about next week and also longterm to be less anxious... 💔 . 5 miles // 8:40 avg . #chasingboston #running #runner   #runningismytherapy #runnersofinstagram #runnersofig #runchat #runninginspiration #justrun #runningmom #runsmart #momswhorun #mrtt #momsrunthistown #motherrunner #runnerscommunity #womensrunningcommunity #womensrunning #TeamWR #ilovetorun #runva
Yards for breakfast! Today I hit just over 100,000 yards in the pool for the year. I’m actually not sure if that’s all that impressive, but whatever. I’m a stats junkie. 3,000 this morning with all the 50 repeats that toasted my shoulders 🏊🏼‍♀️

“I think it’s the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work, and how they don’t work,” Michelle Obama . . 5 easy miles before racing to my women's health PT appointment. Yep, a PT going to a PT. My pelvic floor dysfunction is mild and inconsistent. But whether it's inconsistent or consistent...its not normal. And there are incredible professionals who can actually help us rehab one of the most important parts of our body. In the past month and half my left hip, which has always been a problem of mine has gotten tighter and "weaker." when I slow down after running hard, change direction or go for long runs, sometimes I freaking pee my pants 🤷 There is so much interplay between the pelvic floor and our hips, low back, pelvis, and even upper trunk. Literally everything. When we have babies our bodies change. Our pelvic floors stretch, our diaphragms can't function optimally as we make room for the baby. When we train through those changes, we may be reinforcing patterns and movement that are not effective and efficient. And just because the baby comes out, doesn't mean we snap back. If our pelvic floor remains uncoordinated and out of sync with the rest of the "core system," we lose power and we can't perform as efficiently. Why am I sharing this on social media? Because this is so common. But everyone is embarrassed to talk about it. Or they don't know they can actually get help. Being a mom, chasing kids, being physically active requires a lot of energy and power. Running is a skill. Yes, anyone can put one foot in front of the other. But it takes skill to correctly and efficiently move our bodies. Lifting and carrying our kids correctly is also a skill! So I am going back to the basics. Rehabing and prehabing so I can hopefully be one of those 80 year old ladies running races someday. So If you pee your pants (any amount! Any time!), have diastasis recti, prolapse, low back, hip or pelvic pain, pain with sex, are growing a baby or holding that baby... A women's health PT will give you so much information about your body and how to actually change it for the better! ❤️

Beautiful Charleston sunrise 🌅 Every day the sun rises, it’s up to you to catch it 😋 Another chilly day for a run, but I’m not complaining. Put in some easy miles and working on building back up my base. I’m still being cautious with increasing my mileage and focusing on form and cadence.

Today I did some running tourism. I often say that I don’t spend enough time in central London, given that we live so close. So today I decided to get in a bit of sight seeing. My long run route started at Tower Bridge and took me along the Thames path to Putney before I headed south to Home. I went past so many cool things on the way, particularly in the first 3 or 4 miles. This also happened to be my longest ever run being a total of 16 miles. I guess this is what Marathon training is all about, pushing those limits, bit by bit. - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #marathon #marathontraining #barcelonamarathon #halfmarathon #10k

Another short steady tonight. No metronome but kept a steady 160 spm. Stride length kept creeping up till I reined it back In so pacing still variable.

Chicago on my mind! Up since 5am and checking my bank and email account. I didn't expect to be that anxious!

#transformationtuesday Looking back at how far I’ve come as a runner in 12 months provides me with lots of motivation. It has not been easy, anyone that says it is is probably telling a fib, but it has brought rewards. The key for me has been small incremental improvements. At first it was about weight loss but more recently about times. Training persistently, slowly but surely provides the transformation. As you become stronger both mentally and physically your limits widen. The key is to keep knocking on the door of those limits and to push that little bit further. We all have our own goals and journey, just keep putting one foot in front of the other! - #thisdadcanrun #rundadrun #rundaddyrun #dadsthatrun #thisdadruns #goodbyedadbod #runningdad #runnerdad #instarunner #instarunning #runfatboyrun #runningman #runsmart #runhappy #running #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runwithasmile #runfast #runrunrun #londonrunner #runlondon #marathon #marathontraining #barcelonamarathon #halfmarathon #10k
Injury, after injury causing you problems? In this situation the first thing I do is rest and shift the focus. If all you do is think about how frustrated you are that you can’t run that will A) not help you feel good and B) encourage you to make poor choices i.e attempt to run again too soon and risk making it worse. Running makes you feel good right? So look at an alternative method of training that gives you (and your body) the same feel good release - bike, rower, cross-trainer, swimming...? Walk into any modern gym and you will be presented with a vast array of cardiovascular kit. Despite many people saying this piece of equipment is ‘good’ or that one is ‘bad’, my opinion is that you can still get an ace workout, and feel good, if you apply intensity to whichever piece of kit you choose. Of course the real test to see if you can actually run again... is to run again! But, plot your comeback carefully. Choose your comeback date and put it in the diary. That is the day you will work towards trying to run again. Just make sure that this date is far enough away to give you a reasonable amount of time to rest the injury and seek any specialist help needed. Without that date in the diary it is so easy to wake up and think “hmm I think I’ll try today” and then you set yourself back further. Above all try to stay positive. In life we really never know what is waiting for us just around the next corner. Hey it could even be a bloke with a selfie stick and all the answers to your problems. 🤓🤳🏽 #runningcoach #changethewayyourun #runsmart #runningmotivation #injuryfreerunning #mindfulrunning #runtomotivate #runtoinspire #instarunning #runninginjuries #mindfulness #exercisemotivation #ukrunchat @on_running @thederbyrunner
🤔 Which heart rate monitor do you use? There are plenty of options in the market ⠀ 🙄Many brands claim that wrist HR monitors are as accurate as the chest straps. From my experience, they give similar date when resting and when your heart rate doesn’t vary much (like if you’re having a long walk or steady run), but you get very different results when HR varies ⠀ ⠀ 👉🏼If you’re getting into triathlon, get the Tri chest strap HR monitor for these reasons: ⠀ 🥇First why you shouldn’t rely on the wrist HR alone: ⠀ 🔸Even the latest models that garmin claims are very close to the real thing are inaccurate in swimming 🔸You want to measure it at the source. Wrist pulse is always lagging. If you’re training high intensity intervals and you want to get your HR to a certain number for few seconds, measuring at the wrist will never work. Chest monitors give you instantaneous variances 🔸The position on your wrist can very the reading. This has improved a lot, but it still shows weird numbers of the watch doesn’t sit properly ⠀ 🥈Now why you should get the Tri chest mount: ⠀ 🔸It has all the functions that you need for running, cycling, and swimming. This includes not only heart rate, but running and swimming dynamics, which is a detailed analysis of your exercise. I’ll write about this in a future post. 🔸It is very reliable and can serve for a long time. I’ve had mine for 3 years and still works well. All you need to do is change the battery once a year. 🔸Running HR is great but at a slightly higher price you get the Tri one. You won’t buy this everyday so I suggest you go for the best option 🔸If you’re into swimming and are thinking of getting the swim monitor, don’t! It fits very badly and always falls. It gives swimming dynamics which is not that useful as running dynamics, and the price is almost the same as the Tri monitor. ⠀ 💵 If you’re looking to pay less garmin has offers cheaper, but they only give your HR which less accuracy (they use older technology) and they’re bulky. In my future post I’ll write about running dynamics and how to use them to improve your run. ⠀ 🗒If you use any other tracker or have a different experience using the ones I described above,
Almost the end of 2018 & everyone is still taking pictures of their butts & abs and I'm over here just trying to disect my stride. Gym butt pics are great & all (nah over it) but what about instead humbly using your camera in the interest of self improvement, performance improvement. GAIT ANALYSIS! Often humbling, it doesn't come with fancy lighting or contrived angles to make you look your most gym time sexy, but it will give you some insight into the holistic patterns your body makes that you are probably unaware of. Patterns that could be showing the imbalances, or dysfunction hindering you from making the gains you don't even know you are capable of. Many people think gait analysis is just about someone watching you walk/ run & evaluating your feet & shoes. Your feet are only a piece of the puzzle, your very individualized puzzle. Gait is a biomechanical chain of events that is uniquely effected by your own functional strengths, stability, mobility, flexibility, power, as well as habit & kinesthetic awareness. It is complex to the say the least & it is all of these elements that comprise ones very personal whole-body activities/movement patterns such as running. Taking time & insite into understanding how your own body is moving is paramount to staying injury free, becoming efficient & continually making productive gains. As for sizing up my own gait (which I took some time to revisit today, pics from my video), it is often not pretty to look at our own posterior chain. Eeeek! But trying to stay as non judgemental as possible, I search for what I already know to be an issue as well as anything new or off. A life time of dance shows specific nuances in my movement as well as compensations from the ground up, from the dance/sport specific need for external rotation & flexibility as well as the often over utilized dexterity in my feet. Is this all bad? No not necessarily as long as I am aware of it , take measures to make corrections so I can work on creating the best patterns possible & learn how to control my movement needs from training one sport to training for another. I am careful to always run mindfully so I can focus on an efficient healthy gait.
We had a huge weekend for races, love seeing the limits get pushed. As 2018 nears the end we hope you’ve accomplished everything you set out for and are prepared to take the bar higher next year! 💥💪 • #ultraspire #inspiredbyathletes #trailrunning #ultramarathon #runnersofinstagram #runner #runsmart #getoutandrun #runners

The fact that the body is lying down is no reason for supposing that the mind is at peace. Rest is sometimes far from restful ~ Seneca . Sometimes, forcing yourself to lie down and 'rest' can make you even more stressed and doing something productive, creative or physical will actually have much more relaxing effect on your mind...just sayin 😉 . #stoicism
Very impressed with @lybproject this weekend as she ran a 1:50:21 half marathon where there was no shortage of hills and temps were in the 20s! I guess it doesn't come as a huge surprise when racing in NH in the month of December! What was really great about Cyndi' s run at this half was that she performed really well even though she had to take a few weeks of lighter running because of illness and health concerns. Far too often, runners are afraid that a little time off will undo all of their growth and improvements. This is a reminder that rest days are sometimes necessary and a critical part of the training journey. Had Cyndi forced the hand and run when the body was begging for a break she certainly would have struggled to get better and might not have toed the line this weekend whatsoever. Great work Cyndi! Excited to work towards Boston in the spring and continue to see you improve and develop! Thanks for always being proactive and understanding the power of rest and recovery! #mckirdytrained #proudcoach #runsmart #powerofrest
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF MY PISTONS! Official race photos that were provided by yesterday’s race - FREE! I love this race more! With the extended trouble of my asthma, I decided on a “rabbit” to help me back to the finish. My objective was to find a slightly slower pace that would enable continuous moment since my inhaler even after multiple puffs did not expand my lungs wide enough to match a faster pace. As a previous track athlete I’m a fast finisher and although my “rabbit” tried hard to pull away, 1/4 mile out, the pistons gunned it. You should ALWAYS thank and congratulate your pacer! #blackgirlmagic #kickingdepressionsass #fitmum #blackgirlsrun #marathoner #runsmart #617bostonrunner #fitmom #whateverittakes

Goals this week include being aware of your #posture . Poor posture can lead to pain, increased injury risk, and many other issues. Pay closer attention to your posture this week during various activities such as sitting at a desk, sitting on the couch, sleeping, standing, during your run and during your strength exercises. ⠀ One of our favorite posture tips if you are sitting at a desk for most of your day is to set a timer for 30 minutes and when the timer goes off take a couple of minutes to stand up and reverse your posture. These small breaks will make a big difference!

Danielle Orner Today, I was all over the place from not wanting to run AT ALL to not wanting to stop once I got out there 😵 I actually trained for a half in Georgetown today, benefiting the @eod_wf , but because our basement bathroom is under construction (with family coming this weekend🙈), and Eddie is doing all the work himself, I didn't have the time I normally do to escape to the city. This week I tapered for this race, and I LOVED the days OFF. It's apparent I need some time away. Something NOT on the calendar to plan around. When the kids went down for naps I just wanted to lay on the couch and watch football. Do nothing (or finish Christmas shopping, or my continuing education hours, or our Christmas cards!). But I laced up. Promised myself 5 hard miles. But then the kids were still sleeping at the end, so I kept going to make it 7.5 for the day. The motivation won't always be there. But there is something about knowing our bodies. As much as I need the time off I had a gut feeling I needed to run today. To clear my mind. To have "my" time. The kind of run that makes you feel refreshed rather than tired. But I think the magic word here is balance. Working on balance. When to push, when to pull back. #motherrunner #momonamission #runhardmomharder #runyourworld #liveeasyrunhard #irunthisbody #ihavearunnersbody #runstrong #runsmart #dowhatmakesyouhappy #physicaltherapist #healthiswealth #mentalhealthawareness #runnersworld #learneverydamnday #womenofrunning #runnersofinstagram #keepshowingup #oiselleteamdmv #headupwingsout #womensrunningcommunity
After my run yesterday, we went out to the suburbs to visit my husband's parents. I don't eat Taco Bell often but I spotted one from 1/4 mile away! The two bean burritos that I had tasted awesome!! But, waking up 4 times throughout the night to 🤢 was not. I can't say it was the burritos, but I can say that I still feel pretty awful 👎 We went to a gingerbread making workshop at the Chicago Architecture Foundation (see pic 😁) and I'd planned to run home from there. But, by the end, I was feeling so nauseous that I had to bag that idea. I'm currently home on the couch, so that I can be within running distance of the bathroom 👎I'm feeling a little discouraged with my training. On the one hand, I'm not trying to build marathon fitness, only maintain it from my Chicago Marathon training cycle. I've still hit 40+ miles the last 2 weeks. But on the other hand, I know the importance of each run with #hansonsmarathonmethod and don't like missed runs. I guess consistency is key, right?! Time to get back on track! Any words of advice from fellow HMM runners? Advice appreciated! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ #training #running #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #runsmart #chicagorunner #runningrestday #runnerslife #halfmarathoner #marathontraining #distancerunner #marathonrunner #teacherrunner #louisianamarathon #unexpectedrestday
Gave it my all yesterday at The Capstone 50k and it paid off! 10 minute PR from last year and the win! Thanks @turdltrek for an amazing race. Also I walked away from this beautiful race with a deeper appreciation for my local trails. It’s amazing how you walk away from every race with a new lesson learned. I love what I do and I can’t wait for what’s to come! . . . . As always thank you @altrarunning for the amazing product. I raced in the new Timp 1.5 and I have to say I might have found a new favorite shoe! The perfect balance of cushioning and weight. Also @ultraspire for the awesome packs and belts. @univedsports for some killer nutrition! And @stgeorgerunningcenter for all the amazing support they give. 📸: @miathemiss #embracethespace #runsmart #keepmovingforward #trailrunning #zerolimits #staypositive #staycool 😎
