This week marks twelve months since I ran 420+ miles bagging the highest points of England, Scotland and Wales along the way. I lost over 8kg that week (despite eating Ice Cream everyday). Aside from putting some weight back on, a lot has changed since I set out on this crazy adventure. For a start I now call France home, and bearing I mind I don’t speak a word of French, believe me, that’s an adventure. Twelve months ago I couldn’t have felt further from where I do today. I had crashed back home after an unforgettable year based in the US. Life was good! But I wasn’t. I lacked purpose and questioned myself daily. I started this run because I didn’t really know what else to do. I wanted to raise awareness for @calmzone and ended up becoming more aware myself. Today is #worldhealthday and I think it’s important that we still consider #mentalhealth in the same conversation. I don’t pretend to have been in that dark place many people feel trapped in every day. But the more acceptable this conversation becomes in my opinion the better. Life is crazy sometimes. Don’t forget to take a minute for yourself every now and again.

[Nervous] smiling because of my 2000m row on Wednesday. 🙈 . I was challenged to the 2k row by one of my clients and it’s all for CALM. Campaign Against Living Miserably is a charity that works to help prevent male suicide since in the UK suicide is the number 1 killer of men under 45 years old. CALM’s campaigns involve #project84 and #dontbottleitup . . We all know the stereotype where men were taught to keep a stiff lip, show no emotions and not cry. Well, this is what it’s lead to. Unbelievable pressure for them to perform to an unrealistic standard. Men can spread themselves thin because they’re being looked up to, they don’t want to say “no” or to admit they’ve taken on a bit too much. Fathers, husbands, brothers, sons etc. Suddenly, a smile that was once genuine, might turn into a fake one and unless you ask, you will never know what’s troubling them. And if they never get to share their inner turmoil, it can all get a bit much. And that’s where CALM step in. . When going through hard times, it’s important to have somebody to talk to. Friends, family, colleagues you trust etc. Because bottling problems up can have devastating consequences that we have no clue of. We can all have down days, I am having a few tough days myself, but as long as you have somebody to open up to or somebody to listen, you won’t feel alone. Because you’re not. ♥️ . So, as I’m preparing myself for the row, I feel blessed for it gives me something to focus on and help somebody else. ♥️ . I will be doing my 2000m row on Wednesday aiming for a total time as close to 7 minutes as possible. Not just a chilled out row but I’m going to be giving it my all. 🔥 Please tune in on Instagram live around 12-12:30 (I will specify the time tomorrow/Wednesday morning) and leave a small donation for CALM of you can. The link to my Just Giving page is on my profile. Thanking you in advance! Let’s be supportive and strong for those who’ve had to be strong for too long! 💪🏼 . #charity #calm #smile #strong #challenge #friends #family #support #askforhelp #love #life #foragoodcause #gym #fitmom #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth
You may (or may not) have noticed I haven’t talked about my mental health for a while. The truth is, that’s because it’s not in good shape. I’ve been on these pills for two months now and they’ve done a good job at taking the edge off but all I feel like they’ve done is cage the demon in my head and most of the time I can still hear him rattling the bars. My counselling sessions have slipped due to the sheer cost of them and doing it solidly over winter put me in a financial mess. In truth, the NHS help but don’t do enough really I was given pills and left to fend for myself and I don’t know where to start. I’m currently being held together with cuddles from my family, big sessions in the gym and an obsessive level of note taking and planning and routine. Sorry for the moan, I know I’ve got it good really. Just some days the warrior doesn’t want to leave his tent because the battle seems too great.
After hearing about a body of work entitled #project84 , and after listening to the album #kidsseeghosts , I was inspired to produce a body of work where I speak openly about my battles with depression, and how unfortunately it is still a taboo subject to talk about. #stilllife , #spiritual , #mixedmedia , #pastels , #depression , #scanning , #photoshop , #photography , #depression , #bodycasting

MENTAL HEALTH Im thinking of Mike Thalassitis, who sadly took his own life. Watching @thismorning with Montana Brown, who met her thoughtful friend on the reality show Love Island. Spoke so wonderfully of his loyalty, how he enjoyed his TV work & life in the public eye. You find that men in particular, are after quick practical solution based ways, of how to get out of the dark space they’ve found themselves in. We as People find it hard to talk about our Feelings You can never tell, what might happen, it can be such a shock! Well done Montana on sharing your thoughts at such a difficult time for you🧡🌷 So sad are these numbers - on average 84 men take their own life’s each week. 16 times every single day in this country. It’s the single biggest killer for men under 45 🍃So common. Trying to understand that Depression can strike at anytime & none of us are immune. Please Try & Open up, Talk & Share your feelings👄 Changes in behaviour, for example ~ quieter than usual, if you notice these signs > Call a helpline, when you are worried for a family member or friend. The word suicide is very difficult to say, but by taking the time to talk about it, ‘can put the break on’ Don’t go through this alone ~ communicate.

One year since I helped @calmzone in the organising of the groundbreaking national TV #project84 Campaign bringing attention to the 84 men who commit suicide every week in the UK. A time of my life I will never forget, and will be with me forever. Meeting so many of the families of men who had taken their own lives, was humbling and inspirational. Still so much to do to educate, prevent and help those left behind. #malesuicideawareness #malesuicide #itsoktotalk @itvstudios @thismorning
Tuesday chest and abs! Repping the @calmzone orange today. Always talk gentlemen. Always.
• my final year project at university has a deeper meaning than many realise, as a mother to a little boy in the changing society of the 21st century it is important to me to understand how I can raise my son to feel exactly how any human being should feel, whether that is happy, sad, angry I want my little boy to know he can show any emotion and not be afraid of that making him less of a man. the statistics of men taking their own life due to the sheer fact that they do not know how to discuss their feelings often links back to how they were raised a children with throw away comment such as "boys don't cry" or "man up" being engraved on their brain and causing knock on affects in later life. #boysgetsadtoostudio have started an incredible business to help raise awareness for mens mental health and are a company that i personally respect and want others to recognise the incredible work they are doing. we all hurt. we all feel. it's okay to not feel okay sometimes whether you are a woman or a man.• #toxicmasculinity #project84 #boysgetsadtoo #boyscry
#project84 84 men take there life a week U ARE NOT WEAK U ARE IMPORTANT U ARE LOVED I AND SO MANY OTHERS WILL BE HERE TO LISTEN✨
A smile can hide a lot of things people know nothing about. This is what depression looks like. A simple message of ‘are you ok’ could save a loved ones life. You just never know what someone is going through. We need to think about what we are teaching younger generations to value. Fame and money will not make you happy. We need to teach young people to talk about their feelings and not feel ashamed to reach out. It's also a reminder that what you see in the media is not necessary real. On the outside his social media looked like a guy living the high life, money, clothes and girls, but no one knew that inside he was in turmoil. Don't judge, look for the signs in people's behaviour changing, make those you love know that however trivial they think it is you are there for them❤️ #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #project84 #mikethalassitis #rip
Suicide is the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK. On average 16 men take their lives every day. Those are statistics I was very nearly part of. ⠀ A couple of years ago I was overcome with a severe bought of depression. You hear people talk about having "a dark night of the soul", well for me that dark night lasted about 4 very long and arduous months. During that whole period suicide was very much at the forefront of my mind. ⠀ Depression is like a virus, it seeps into your bones, into the very core of your being. For those who haven't been through it themselves it's very hard to understand. ⠀ For a long time I had no one I could reach out to who knew what I was going through. Even the therapists I went to see were of very little help. It was only after I was able to find people who were willing to connect with me emotionally, rather than mentally as the therapists were doing, that I was able to at least start on the long road towards healing myself. ⠀ It seems in our society that men are expected to have their shit together at all times, to bear the heavy burdens of life while remaining unwavered. But beneath that rigid mask of masculinity there's a lot of issues that aren't being fully addressed. ⠀ The first step towards recovery for me was removing that mask and admitting I had a problem. Allowing myself to be vulnerable and develop the true strength to authentically connect with my emotions. For a man that's often a hard thing to do. ⠀ It's important that men open up about these issues otherwise the facade of modern masculinity will remain distorted and promote an unhealthy and inauthentic way of being in the world that will only lead to an increased level of mental health problems and in turn deaths by suicide. ⠀ I'm now donating all profits from this limited edition print to CALM (The Campaign Against Living Miserably 👉 @calmzone ) which helps bring awareness to male suicide and its devastating impact by "challenging boring male stereotypes and encouraging positive behavioural change and help-seeking behaviour, using cultural touch points like art, music, sport and comedy." ⠀ £50 - 50cm x 50cm - Link to my shop in bio 👉@jamesroperart ⠀ ❤
. 💜IMPORTANT💜 —————————————————— - Okay so I feel like so far this week has been a weird one. With the death of reality TV star Mike Thalassitis (aka Muggy Mike from love island). I feel like there’s been a lot of discussion about suicide and mental health which is brilliant. Obviously it’s shit that this topic/issue exists but it does unfortunately and it seems to be affecting lives more and more. It was such a shock hearing that he had committed suicide. On TV he seemed so confident and loving life. Obviously I didn’t know him and obviously this isn’t me saying how sad I am but it is heartbreaking when you hear someone so young has taken their life, celebrity or not. I heard on the tv recently that apparently 84 men a week take their own life. That is crazy! I think a lot of men have been brought up to be ‘manly’ and are judged if they are emotional or sensitive. I actually saw a woman make a comment on a tv show, she said something like ‘I don’t know how I feel about a man that cries’ WHY. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. There is no right or wrong when it comes to emotions. It doesn’t matter who you are. You could see the most happiest and most confident people and depression/anxiety can still be in their lives. You have no idea what people are going through privately. This isn’t me saying we need to check up on everyone both happy and sad. But noticing changes. For your friends and family - if there has been a major event happen in their life or if you have any genuine concerns contact a helpline. We all need to just be a lot more kind and considerate. As a society there are so many judgments made. This isn’t me saying we can’t bitch or have opinions. But name calling and making accusations is not on. I’ll use Mike Thalassitis’s death as an example. Because his ex didn’t post straight away, everyone started blaming her and saying how much of a bitch she is by being so heartless. Is she not allowed to grieve and be in shock without posting it on social media? We can’t be a contradictory society. Who knows what she is going through? Why blame her? Kindness is key.

A mild night, kids in bed early so out I went. Gotta say it was one of those runs that felt good from the start and I felt like I could have gone further. Over the moon with the pace aswell, hopefully be able to keep that pace going throughout my training. Only down side, my calves feel really tight, off for some stretching before bed. #gnr2019 #running #roadtoberlin #fitness #weightloss #healthymind #healthybody #breastcancernow #findacure #project84 #northeastrunners #runnersofinstagram #marathon #runningninjas #runningburd #depressionbattle #survive #ukrunchat #itsoknottobeok #garmin235 #depressionbattle #positivemind #marathontraining #lgrc #berlinmarathon2019 #outrunthedark
Suicide is the leading killer of men under 45 in the UK currently. Men are statistically more likely to die from a suicide attempt as they tend to use more violent methods than women. Talking openly about suicide does not cause someone to take their life, not talking about it is dangerous. This is why @calmzone charity was set up to prevent male suicide. They have a helpline but if you can’t face talking there is also a webchat service, both open from 5pm to midnight everyday. There is also advice for anyone worried about a male who may be struggling and lots of other advice on specific mental health problems, and links to other resources such as books and podcasts. To any men who are suffering please reach out. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Sending love and healing to anyone suffering right now. #RIPMikeThalassitis #timetochange #timetotalk #project84 #dontsufferinsilence #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention
Again this weekend we hear sad news of another young man who has taken his own life, a life that looked great from the outside.

I have to put this out there especially after the devastating death of @mike_thala. As you all know I lost my beautiful soulmate 6 months ago to suicide. I blame so much on social media. Yes you all want to put out your perfect lives and this puts so many of us under pressure to ascertain the same goals. SOCIAL MEDIA PERFECTION IS FAKE. We need to help each other by keeping it real. Tell that person you love them, say thank you for kindness & reach out to those who need it. Your words of love once they have gone are too late. Let's change social media & go back to reality. Suicide is only more apparent when the victim is in the public eye so its YOU that I'm calling out to in the public eye to make a change. Let's take this pressure off our generation. Shouting out your love and support once they're gone IS TOO LATE. Rip @mike_thala heaven has gained an angel this land has lost a gentleman💔let's give support & help to reality stars & hopefully this will resignate in society. Speak up anyone who needs someone to listen my account is open for just that DM me I will always reciprocate.

Such very sad news about Mike Thalassitis. So terribly sad that the only way he could see to get out of the dark place he was in, was to take his own life. It’s Just tragic. He must of be so scared. Mental health issues are very real. 84 men take their own life every week. Men are three times more likely to take their own life than women. Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about #bekind #itsoknottobeok #project84 #suicideprevention #samaritans #raiseawareness #depressionawareness #lookoutforeachother #malesuicideawareness

Enter now at fcnotalone.com and tackle suicide; the single biggest killer of UK men under 45.
No my account hasn’t been hacked I am actually posting something for the first time in over 2 years . . . This year I’ve decided to try and raise some money for @calmzone (campaign against living miserably) a leading movement against suicide. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK and CALM run free and confidential helplines for anyone who need to talk about life’s problems. Obviously I need to do something in order to get people to donate to my cause so with that in mind I’ve signed up for seven triathlons, two 10k runs and half marathon across the course of 2019 starting next week. ***The link for my just giving page is in my bio and I will be posting regular updates of my (attempt at) training*** Any help would be greatly appreciated as I’ve set myself a big target of £2000! #CALM #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #Project84 #dontbottleitup #uokm8
Another run in the bag, very windy so happy with the time and pacing, small steps leading to the bigger picture. I also felt this run let me release some tension, it's been a difficult few days after what I'd consider a good few month in terms of my mental health. I wont let the last few dictate my mood and I'm gonna push on from here, the picture is #keithflint who only a few days before he tragically took his own life, ran a parkrun and achieved a PB. I can't begin to imagine his troubles that led to his decision but people should know there's always people to took to and try to work through those issues, I guess he thought he couldn't. Running helps me release some frustration and makes me feel better, find whatever works for you and go with it. #gnr2019 #running #roadtoberlin #fitness #weightloss #healthymind #healthybody #breastcancernow #findacure #project84 #northeastrunners #runnersofinstagram #marathon #runningninjas #runningburd #depressionbattle #survive #ukrunchat #itsoknottobeok #garmin235 #depressionbattle #positivemind #marathontraining #lgrc #berlinmarathon2019

My entry for @we.are.not.them In the UK 84 males take their own lives every week. That’s 12 a day or one every two hours. Of the nearly 6000 suicides every year 75% are men. Recent campaigns by charities and the NHS means suicide is now at its lowest level since the 1980s but the most at risk age group is 40 - 44 year olds so at 42 and considering the recent developments in my life mean this awful statistic is very close to home for me. The issues that surround suicide are complex and the male penchant for not communicating effectively due to social stigma is most often regarded as the main factor in the alarmingly high suicide rates in men. I hope the strong design and ambiguous message of this T-shirt design would provide a talking point for those who wear it. Let’s get this issue out in the open so the stigma and societal embarrassment attached are no longer overriding factors in the silence that surrounds male suicide. #wearenotthem #project84 #malesuicideawareness #illustration #digitalart
This is the most raw and honest post I will ever share. I have never been one for social media, only this last year have I had Instagram.. I have especially not been one for sharing my life events.. that is only for my nearest and dearest. But recently I set up a just giving page.. for a cause I never anticipated having a passion for. I want to reach out to those in need. Those that feel low, are suffering at the hands of depression and especially those affected either by suicidal thoughts or at the hands of suicide loss. Loosing my brother to suicide has had such devastating effects on everybody that knew and loved him. Our lives, changed forever with no immediate relief. So please, if you know somebody that needs support.. be that person... if you need support yourself, reach out. Every day is a new day with new potential.. never forget that. I realise those of you that follow me are probably sick of hearing me say this... but please support #calmzone I’d love for you all to run with me on May 12th, create an orange ‘calmzone army’ or come to support those of us running in memory of Chris. Thank you all for your support and don’t forget donations are still being taken. #suicideloss #calmzone #runningformentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #worldrecordegg #toughrunner #suicide #suicidehotline #samaritans #mentalhealth #mentalhealthsupport #project84 #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #siblingloss #siblingsuicidesurvivor #grief #itsokaynottobeokay #love #depression #grieving #brother #sister #anxiety #bereavement #gonebutneverforgotten #lostwithoutyou #imissyou #angel #mind
The 3 P's of winning. Last weeks numbers 50 miles on the bike and 6 miles running. not alot of running but the 1st time I've ran twice in 1 week for a long time. The plan is more bike miles, 10 each day to work and back and more running. Time to get going and step it up. These PB's aren't going to run themselves. #gnr2019 #running #roadtoberlin #fitness #weightloss #healthymind #healthybody #breastcancernow #findacure #project84 #northeastrunners #runnersofinstagram #marathon #runningninjas #runningburd #depressionbattle #survive #ukrunchat #itsoknottobeok #garmin235 #depressionbattle #positivemind #marathontraining #lgrc
So last I managed 50 mile on my bike over 5 days, to work and back. All pain free, so this morning off I went for a run. 3 mile without stopping unlike 2 weeks ago where I stopped a couple of times. The run felt ok, I felt like I could have gone further but no point pushing it to soon. Plenty to work on including recovery after runs and nutrition in general. The top of the picture shows the races I have planned so far this year. The big one is #berlinmarathon 🇩🇪🇩🇪 plenty of work to do before then. Strength work with the above of recovery and nutrition and I'll get to that start line in tip top condition and hopefully a PB. I also chanced my arm and applied for the #asicsfrontrunner program. Enjoy your week. #gnr2019 #running #roadtoberlin #fitness #weightloss #healthymind #healthybody #breastcancernow #findacure #project84 #northeastrunners #runnersofinstagram #marathon #runningninjas #runningburd #depressionbattle #survive #ukrunchat #itsoknottobeok #garmin235 #depressionbattle #positivemind
FC Not Alone Co-Founder @youfoundian had the pleasure of hosting ex Wales international David Cotterill on @thedogdayspod yesterday. David provided an honest insight in to the highs and lows of professional football. The link will be available on Sunday.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s rest day after managing a 12km run tonight fuelled on coffee and the biggest vegan yum yum you’ve ever seen 🌱 🧁 (shoutout to @islaxmcclung for picking the best place for catch up coffee 💕) I had a go kicking some pads too with @katieeevvans which felt amazing. She’s going to absolutely smash her first fight this Friday💪🏼😍 Training for the marathon has been great but the one thing I am finding is the lack of time I have for socialising. If it’s not working full time or studying, it’s training 3-4 times a week and after seeing so many of my favourite people today, it’s hit home how much I’ve missed them 👯‍♀️ so this week (and hopefully more often than I have been doing) I’ll be ignoring my training apps advice, and I’ll be going to the pub/bar/student union and having fun 🥳 Okay so I won’t be doing Jäger trains and smoking, but I’ll be seeing my friends. Because good friends support you like a good bra and funnily enough you need both to run a marathon 👙🏃🏼‍♀️♥️ #runner #triathlete #blogger #fitness #worldmentalhealthday #marathontraining #thegreatscottishrun #calm #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #project84 #samaritans #blogger #blogsofinstagram #thismorning #no1awards #instagram #runner #blogger #worldmentalhealthday #karrimor #underarmour #fitness #longdistance #marathon #marathontraining #londonmarathon #athlete #female #girls #thisgirlcan #fit #health

#repost @iskra “...Male suicide continues to be the biggest killer of men under 45, and men are nearly 4x more likely than women to take their own life. This installation is part of CALM’s new campaign Project84, and represents the 84 men who take their own lives every week in the UK” (I don’t know the weekly figure for the US, but male suicides account for 79% of total US suicides according to the CDC). “American artist Mark Jenkins has installed these 84 sculptures of men on top of ITV studios in London in hopes that it makes the scale of the situation very clear and drives change and encourages everyone, government included, to come together to take suicide seriously.” Please, if you are struggling in any way, reach out and talk to someone. Tell someone. There are people who care and genuinely want you to live and thrive. Seek out a trusted family member, a friend, or professional—help is always available. You matter. 💗 . . .

MIND CANDY : CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY ..🍬 CALM is an inspiring charity working in creative ways to take action against male suicide and support those who have been effected. ..🍬 You May have seen @calmzone ‘s #project84 last year which put 84 figures if men on top of the bbc buildings to represent the number of men who take their lives each week. ..🍬 This is something very close to my heart and I’ve spoken a lot about suicide and the those left behind over the years. But as times gone in more unbelievably sad experience continue and I’m desperate to do something about it. ..🍬 So, I’m very honoured to be working with @calmzone To be part of the conversation not only in suicide but in #mindfood and the impact we can have. Both through good experiences and through education and knowledge in the wider world. ...🍬 @calmzone Will be part of our Mind Candy experience on the 28th feb and from here forward a percentage of our profits will be supporting their campaigns. . . . #mentalhealth #mindfood #anxietyrelief #supperclub #eatingdisorderrecovery #suicideawareness #mentalfitness #feedyourbrain #feelgoodfood #glutenfree #plantbased #seasonalfood #plantsofinstagram #feelgoodfood #lovewhatyoudo #veganlondon #suicideprevention #plantfood #food #passionproject #londonfood #londonevents #wellness #inspiration #makeanimpact #timetochange
PROJECT 84 (2018) by artists Mark Jenkins and Sandra Fernandez joined forces with the male suicide prevention charity Campaign Against Living Misery (CALM). 84 life size sculptures were placed atop one of Britain’s biggest broadcasters, ITV, on London’s South Bank. The piece aimed to represent the on average 84 men who take their own lives every week in the UK. . . . . . . #project84 #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #markjenkins #sandrafernandez #mensmentalhealth #protestart #artactivist #contemporaryart #artdaily #artactivism #london #humanities #artnews #art #ephemeralart #installationart #publicart #streetart #markeadifferencethroughart
We come to love not by finding the perfect person but by learning to see the imperfect person perfectly ...❤️ Butter bean stew, Slow roasted tomatoes, Black peas and coconut ... On this day so focussed on love there is a wave of conversation about loving ourselves. Which is often the hardest thing. It can be difficult to embrace who we are, the journey we have been in and accept who we choose to be. ... Today I was lucky enough to be invited to the @calmzone offices to talk about my @feedyourmindcandy passion project. ... I have been in awe of CALM from the start as they work in such a forward thinking way to have conversations about male suicide. CALM stands for ‘campaign against living miserably’ and over the years they have found inspiring ways to help so many through their dynamic campaigns including #project84 that stopped the nation in their steps last year. ... I realised today that all I do with @plantacademyuk and my events is my how but @feedyourmindcandy is my why. Myself and so many around me have been deeply and darkly effected over the years and now, finally, we are doing something about it! ... This journey is something I’ll always find hard to come to terms with but I hope through spreading this passion for mind food there will be a little more love and support for everyone out there going through hard things. . . . #spreadthelove #feedyourmindcandy #mindfood #anxietyrelief #eatingdisorderrecovery #suicideawareness #mentalfitness #feedyourbrain #feelgoodfood #vegan #glutenfree #plantbased #cbd #seasonalfood #plantsofinstagram #feelgoodfood #lovewhatyoudo #veganlondon #2019 #mindfood #suicideprevention #plantfood #food #passionproject #londonfood #londonevents
Currently a walking talking carb 🥔Tired, emotional and hilariously full of water weight, it’s been an interesting week here at Got the Runs. The motivation has been none existence, it’s everyone’s fault apart from my own that I’m running a marathon (even though I was the one that signed up for it) and I am constantly reeking of tiger balm 🐯 . . Had an emotional chat with my Dad on the phone last night and I managed to nail my fastest 10K this evening (God Bless you Steve) 😇 I even made a few friends when I got caught up in a military fitness group and got accidentally shouted at by men in uniform, which was just as confusing as it was arousing 😐 Off home to race and see my family this weekend! It’s been 3 months since I’ve seen my little squish and she’s now taking her first steps, and I’ll be damned if I’m missing that 💁🏼‍♀️ Have a good evening kiddos x . . . #runner #triathlete #blogger #fitness #worldmentalhealthday #marathontraining #thegreatscottishrun #calm #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #project84 #samaritans #blogger #blogsofinstagram #thismorning #no1awards #instagram #runner #blogger #worldmentalhealthday #karrimor #underarmour #fitness #longdistance #marathon #marathontraining #londonmarathon #athlete #female #girls #thisgirlcan #fit #health
W1 D3 - Spent 5km chasing @trishiftlife , then spent 5km running away from him! . I also then spent 30min in the gym avoiding core 😂. (Hence the smile) Probably the last time I’ll get away with that one though. . #racetothestones2019 #racetothestonestraining #trails #outdoors #team #project84 #calmzone #core #rtts2019
apparently i didn’t post this at the time, but #project84 is still one of the best mental health awareness projects i have ever seen 🏙🌻 . . #calm #mentalhealth #sculpture #installationart #southlondon #urbanphotography #architecture
Hello all! This year I am taking part in Race to the Stones, a 100km Ultra Marathon along the Ridgeway July 13th. This event gave me a bit of a 53km hiding last year, so naturally I'm heading back for a rematch, and hopefully raising some funds for CALM along the way. . . For those unfamiliar, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the UK. In 2015, 75% of all UK suicides were male. There are over 6,000 deaths by suicide in the UK every year – an average of 16 per day. . . Any support, donations, training tips, or even hi 5's along the trail would be greatly appreciated, along with sharing the positive message of CALM. . . There is a load more information on my JustGiving page, and the CALM Website as well, so why not check it out! . . Thanks everyone ! 🙂 #CALM #RTTS #rtts2019 #CALMZone #project84
Update. I’d been planning for weeks on running a 30 mile long run on the coast path this morning. These pills have had some interesting side effects and made me feel a little weird for now so I thought it not safe. I then planned to go to the gym. No such luck. Alarm went off at 05:00, I annoyed the long suffering @mrsloralane immensely by just turning it off and going back to sleep. Man this is hard. “I’m trying to get better ‘cos I haven’t been my best”. Eugh agh eugh.

Ran a speedy 7 miles after work today and it felt amazing to get back out injury free (for now!) 🏃🏼‍♀️ Slowly starting to get my strength back and I’m finding I’m no longer out of breath on longer distances 💪🏼 had a long ass shower and broke into the largest bottle of @lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel so I now smell just as amazing as I currently feel #pleasesponsorme 🛀🏼Resting up for a couple of days, seeing one of my favourite humans on Friday night then pushing for a 12 miler come Saturday! 🥰💁🏼‍♀️ #runner #triathlete #blogger #fitness #worldmentalhealthday #marathontraining #thegreatscottishrun #calm #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #project84 #samaritans #blogger #blogsofinstagram #thismorning #no1awards #instagram #runner #blogger #worldmentalhealthday #karrimor #underarmour #fitness #longdistance #marathon #marathontraining #londonmarathon #athlete #female #girls #thisgirlcan #fit #health
Currently on my final taper week before my next half marathon and ended up hitting a very tough 7 miles early this morning in low temperatures and a flurry of snow ❄️😭 Hobbled home to find I’ve got windburn on my thighs and had to be wrapped in blankets to try and stay warm 😇 Curling up with hot chocolate and getting an early night tonight before hitting 12-14 miles this week. The lack of sleep has taken its toll so relaxation is definitely needed 💤 #runner #triathlete #blogger #fitness #worldmentalhealthday #marathontraining #thegreatscottishrun #calm #campaignagainstlivingmiserably #project84 #samaritans #blogger #blogsofinstagram #thismorning #no1awards #instagram #runner #blogger #worldmentalhealthday #karrimor #underarmour #fitness #longdistance #marathon #marathontraining #londonmarathon #athlete #female #girls #thisgirlcan #fit #health
