It’s the truth; it’s a fact; I was gone; But now I’m back. Yeah. #PB alert. First β€˜race’ in months yesterday due to a lingering soleus injury so was very surprised and happy to run a course PB at the Midland Road Relays. 19m 05s for 5.88k. I don’t think I’ve ever run one properly prepared so hope to smash through 19 mins one year. It’s more a time trial than a race unless you’re leg one or can get into a battle with a fellow racer. Hundreds of the best regional club runners all take part, it’s super competitive. Anyway, my club #birchfieldharriers had a brilliant day including our 6 man A Team winning the Gold medal for the first time since 2009. Here we all are cheering @atovey__ to victory on the final leg. πŸ“· @andrew1903peat

Top afternoon in Sutton Park as Tipton Harriers got amongst the medals at the Midland 6 Stage road Relays, grabbing a silverπŸ₯ˆ I had the job of Running the last leg (glory or not leg)! I got handed over in 2nd place, 1st was out of sight, so it was a case of holding off Cheltenham in 3rd. I managed it with a bit to spare, so got to enjoy the last 400m of the race! A rare occurrence in the road Relays! Even a bit of show boating in the home straight for our great support! Well done to everyone who ran today from all clubs! πŸ‘ #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #runner #roadrelays #midlandroadrelays #silvermedal #suttonpark #tiptonharriers #swiftandeager #atleastIdidintballsitup #teamwork #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #personaltrainer #fitness #practicewhatyoupreach #trainhardraceharder #lactichell #birmingham #suttoncoldfield #nutritionist #sportsnutritionist #midlands #stravarun
In my new role as team data entry clerk, β€œwhere are you” athlete-hassler and umbrella/coat-holder to the stars, it gave me huge (if largely invisible) pleasure to see the Birchfield Harriers senior men win the Midlands Relays for the first time since 2009. . The club A-team led from gun to tape, completing the six legs in 1:48.something to go faster than last year’s winning team, and beat local spinoffs (108 years ago) Tipton Harriers into second place. . πŸ“Έ - Alex Tovey passes his team-mates as he approaches the finish of the final 5.88km leg, with almost 2 minutes in hand over Tipton. . #midlandroadrelays #midlandrelays #suttonpark #fleetandfree #birchfieldharriers

Friendship ~ A lovely morning spent with these two cuties. With five months between them, Alex was Freddie’s first proper friend. They go to nursery together, and just love being in each others company. In just over a months time Military life will be intervening, with both of them having to move to different parts of the country. Freddie’s going to miss his play dates with you Alex! #friendship #frederickcharleshenry #toddlerlife #playdate #suttonpark #suttoncoldfield #autumnalwalk #autumnalvibes #toddlerootd
Good luck to everyone racing the Midland Six Stage relays today. I’m having to have some time off training as not feeling 100% but hopefully be back on it in a few days ready for trials next week. Been looking at some photos and medals and Sutton has been good to me over the years. 1992 running for Tamworth as a Colt (U13 race as a 12 year old) winning my first midland medal and taking bronze, to 13 years later winning gold in the 12 stage for Birchfield. Luckily running the 11th leg enjoying a good gap and coasting behind the lead bike feeling like what I can only imagine pros feel like (sort of). Race hard everyone and enjoy it. Hope the weather holds out too. - - - - - #birchfieldharriers #sixstageroadrelays #midlandroadrelays #suttonpark #nike #nikemayfly #nikemayflyoriginal #athletics

Memory Walk 15 Sept 2018 - going through my shots I found this one incredibly touching. If you look you will see a family watch as their memory leaf is caught by the breeze and floats up into the sky. Poignant, I feel.I want to reach out and hug them all, but sadly I don't even know their names. #memorywalk #memorywalk2018 #alzheimnerssociety #alzheimers #photography #fundraising #suttonpark #memorywalksuttonpark #memorytree #birminghammemorywalk
I guess you could say I’m inspired by nature.... as a child I craved freedom and the out doors but for various reasons I didn’t always get the nature fix I needed unless you count tedious hours in my back garden singing on my swing. I’m lucky that as an adult I live by a big green space, Sutton Park. All these photos were taken there using my fuji. #momlife #underapewtersky #nature #freedom #love #life #green #suttonpark #autumn #bookings #familyphotography
4th and 5th at last year's Midland 6-Stage Road Relays - will a @t.harriers1910 team grab a top 3 spot and take home some medals at tomorrow's event? ____________________________ #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #roadrunning #roadrelay #runnerscommunity #runningterritory #ukrunclub #ukrunchat #sportsphotography #nikon #canon #runningmotivation #fitnessmotivation #racing #tiptonharriers #suttonpark #midlands #melbournephysio

Hey up strangers...been three months of no racing and sporadic training due to left soleus problems. Anyway I aim to get back on β€˜track’ this weekend...ok not on a track, but on the roads...sort of.

Interesting walk today. High winds, a fire crew spraying water into blackroot and a falling tree. Luckily i was a two minutes slower than the tree. Id been asked directions 15 mins before and saw this go just infront of me...of course bobby had to take the lead to sniff it out. #pawfectfriendssuttoncoldfield #dogwalker #dogsitter #petsitterfouroaks #suttoncoldfieldobserver #suttonpark #suttonparknnr

Memory Walk 15 Sept 2018 - I think seeing this kind of positivity from people affected one way or another by this dreadful disease is truly life affirming. Let's fight with all our might guys. Well done folks for all your efforts. #memorywalk #memorywalk2018 #alzheimnerssociety #alzheimers #photography #fundraising #suttonpark #memorywalksuttonpark #staffordcameraclub
Many people think the IT band is a muscle, but in fact it’s a thick sheet of fascia. It runs superficially from the top of your pelvis (the curved top bit) all the way down the side of your leg and knee down to the very top of your smaller shin bone. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is the most prevalent cause of lateral knee pain in runners. Symptoms begin with a pain or ache on the outside of the knee, present at around the 2 mile mark. As the injury develops this will turn into a more localised & sharp pain in that area ⚑️Most often, people try and β€œrun through the pain” & pretend it never happened. Please don’t do this! Further progression of the injury will result in symptoms appearing sooner during running & in daily activities such as ascending & descending stairs, & it will be much harder to get rid of the pain when you come and see me! πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ There has been some debate as to what exactly causes the pain. Near the outside of the knee, there is a small pointy bit of bone called the Lateral Femoral Epicondyle (LFE) ☠️ It was suggested that the pain is caused by the lower end of the IT band rolling over the LFE during the repetitive movements of running, which then causes painful friction. However, more recent research suggests that is more likely caused from a compression rather than a friction. This means that the IT band actually compresses a layer of fat between the IT band & LFE due to the way our bones move during running, that then causes the pain! πŸ’₯ πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Anyway, there’s a whole bunch of reasons for this injury popping up such as change in running surface, wearing worn shoes, increasing distance too quickly, downhill running, biomechanics and muscle strength. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ First tip – DO NOT FOAM ROLL THE IT BAND πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Lots of people do this & you’re not achieving anything. Instead, foam roll the surrounding areas such as the hamstrings, tensor fascia latae (google it), quadriceps, calves and other hip musculature. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ PLEASE NOTE: This injury is also very common in cyclists & can also occur at the hip! But that’s a story for another day. Does this sound like something you’ve been suffering with? Get in touch today to find out how we can help you πŸ“²

Visited the @birminghamdonkey at the weekend. It's only small but free to visit and see these wonderful animals. They wear the goods to protect their eyes from flies (there were hundreds). If you're in the area go and pay them a visit. #DonkeySanctuary #Birmgham #SuttonPark #SuttonColdfield #Donkeys #mule #sanctuary #vegan #animals #BeVegan
