Aftermath One of my favourite photos, showing the seconds immediately after my 800m PB race during summer past... . . Only a few months now until the fast stuff will be back. It'll just take me to stay injury-free though to better my 2:10 during my injury-plagued last track season!!
#repost beautiful views taken by @murraylaura on her run, making the most of being outdoors and the catching London while its calm 😀🏃🏼‍♀️☀️
Tuesday 16th January - today session was a tempo run. 8 x 800 meters (which is roughly about half a mile) at my 5km pace with 90 seconds recovery. Had a mile warm up and a mile cool down as well. Caught a train to Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire from London Marylebone and warmed up around the beautiful surroundings of the Aquadome in Ricky before hitting the path along the Grand Union Canal, then crossing Cassiobury Park in Watford. Managed to do this session in 1-01-11, running 7 miles (11.26km) and burning 1,062 kcal. The session was great (and nice to see some winter sun) but I think I was a bit slower than my current 5km pace. Still, workout done. No niggles and full of positivity right now. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining

#repost what a beautiful sunset captured by @queenalbania on her afternoon run! It may be cold this time of year but there are so many nice sights to see while running 😀👌🏼☀️🏃🏼‍♀️
Training can get tough at times and sometimes you just want to give up but don’t forget why you started to begin with!! 😀👍🏼🏃🏼
There are hundreds of reasons people run but we are a fan of sharing it on your running top, and we definitely agree it’s a lot better than housework!! 😂👍🏼
#repost could you get a bigger smile than @kara_tontsch_russell while running her first ever half marathon!! 😁👌🏼🏃🏼‍♀️
Beat my Gadebridge parkrun PB, now to work on the all time PB 💪🏃‍♀️
This weeks long run was just some moderate aerobic km's to counterbalance the incoming month of really short speed work. I won't be running track sessions longer than 2k in total so I need all the aerobic buffer I can get! Was lucky to have some nice, cool weather to run in as well, it's regularly going well over 35 out in Western Sydney, so the 20 degree temps were a blessing! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------#parkrun #parkrunuk #parkrunau #runner #run #running #runners #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #instarunning #igrunner #igrunning #runfree #runfast #tracknation #5k #athletics #trackandfield #indoortrack #800m #1500m #mile #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #instarunners #runnerspace #runchat #tracknation

What’s getting you motivated to go running today? #motivationmonday ________ Here is the face of determination from Kieron @anxious_to_ultra ! About to smash a run in his ArmPocket Racer 💪 _______ #armpocket #armpocketuk #armband #runningarmband #motivation
This week we are going to have a series of posts focusing on applying everything discussed over the past two weeks, starting with identifying goals, narrowing down your goals into habits and then minifying these habits into something ridiculously small so that you cannot fail to take action. 💫 Starting small with habits such as drinking one glass of water a day, eating one serving of vegetables or practicing one minute of mindful relaxation will seem ridiculous and most people will laugh at such a goal. In fact the main concern for most is that one repetition is simply not enough. That is the point though as before you get the benefit of exercising you have to do the exercising in the first place. Remember, most people have already faltered on their new year goals because they set goals which were not realistic. Today is ‘Blue Monday’ apparently the worst day of the year particularly if living in the northern hemisphere. Here in London it has been grey, wet and cold, not surprising that motivation and willpower are at their lowest. It is in these days that that ridiculously small mini habit will keep momentum going which is important in moving forwards. 💫 So let’s start by creating a habit plan and for today let’s start big with your goals for the next 6-12 months. For me I want to eat healthy, drink more water, relax more, get stronger and read more books. Start with just getting your goals written down on paper and then circle 1-4 of these goals to focus on. Tomorrow we will then start to narrow these goals down to full size habits and then narrow down further into our mini habits. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️ #ukrunchat #runstagram #runnersofig #worldoftri #whyirun #instarunners #runningworld #run_community #runcoach #injuredrunner #outsideisfree #couchto5k #parkrun #parkrunuk #marathontraining #runnersworld #girlswhorun #run #runner #instarunner #runnappy #running

Day 15 of the 30 day #runstrong challenge from @mbition_coach - the ADAPTIVE training plan for runners. To kick-start and improve your running in 2018 we’ve set a 30 day challenge. Each day we will be posting a #runstrong exercise, so you improve your overall strength, stability, and power so you start the year feeling strong. DAY 15 - Single leg squat. BENEFITS - a great exercise that develops strength and control. HOW - do it 10 times then swap legs. Repeat it 2 more times (total 30 on each leg). To make it harder do more repetitions or squat deeper. Strength is a key aspect that underpins everyone's running performance so whether you're a total novice or chasing a fast PB, join us in doing an exercise everyday and #runstrong in January!

Monday 15th January - 40 minute recovery run today. 4.44 miles (7.14km) at 9.11 per mile pacing. Burnt 691 kcal. On the plus side, just weighed myself and I am now under 13 stone for the first time in 16 months. Now weigh 12.97 stone (82.4kg/181.7lbs) so the weight loss is going well along with the fitness programme. #running #fitness #training #workout #parkrunUK #parkrun #stevenage #stevenagestriders #teamdanik #PridePassionAmbition #RoadtoValencia #runningbuddies #marathontraining

Week 2 Run Every Day January and almost half way there in days and just over 35km for the week and 85km in 14 days. This weeks’ favourite moments were Elsie Flora and I running a two minute personal best Park Run followed by our best swimming lesson yet. Lowlights are the state of my hips and knees but determined to keep going. We also had the wonderful and ever-patient team Redden stay and play which was super super fun 💪🏼🏃🏼‍♂️👧🏼 . . . . #parkrun #parkrunuk #rutland #rutlandwater #rutlandparkrun #RED #redjanuary #runeveryday #mentalhealth #1000kmin2018 #1000km #stravarun #strava #1000kmchallenge #toddlersofinstagram #daddysgirl #daddy #2018 #fitness #frosty #pramrunning #runnersofinstagram #dadding #running #runeveryday #halfmarathon #runners #redjanuary . @parkrunuk @mindcharity @runeverydayjanuary @crohns_colitis

State Mile Champs: Very happy and grateful to come away with the win over the weekend for the NSW Open State Mile Champs. While the time (4:26) isn't what I wanted, sometimes you just have to adapt to whatever happens in the race. You can't control who's racing and how fast they run but you can always control yourself and run your own race! Also happy to run a 56 second last lap, showing my speed isn't as far away as I thought it was, which is exciting as we head into the really fast part of the season. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------#parkrun #parkrunuk #parkrunau #runner #run #running #runners #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #instarunning #igrunner #igrunning #runfree #runfast #tracknation #5k #athletics #trackandfield #indoortrack #800m #1500m #mile #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #instarunners #runnerspace #runchat #tracknation
Trying to stay warm round the Telford 10k course Saturday morning ❄️☁️🍃 Completed in 25:10 pretty pleased with that 👍 My goal this year isn't distance running, it's circuit training but the two types go hand in hand so well so the odd run won't hurt 😉 - #parkrun #parkruntelford #fitness #running #run #runner #instarunners #jogging #5km #runhappy #cardio #fitfluential #exercise #fitspo #workout #trialrunners #furtherfasterstronger #runisfun #instafitness #instafit #parkrunuk #fitfamuk #fitfam #fitnessfreak
This is the face of a man struggling at the final parkrun sprint! . My first parkrun last weekend in nearly a year following a knee injury and I felt it! . More importantly, I loved being back running!! . . #running #parkrun #parkrunuk #sport #fitness #vegan #veganrunner #garmin
Picking up the pace again after about 8 months getting slower and slower ... Still 4 minutes off a PB but I'm working on it (Don't be fooled by the 22nd minute pace maker behind me. I followed him for 1k and then realised I can't go that fast anymore 😑) #parkrun #parkrunuk #5k #loveparkrun @parkrunuk #running #runner #run
