  • Can you believe after working my butt off and gaining all of these medals for over 10 years, they’ve been in a box this entire time?! 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m so stoked to finally hang them up with this super inspiring display from @runningonthewall 🏅 I was able to hang over 25 medals plus all of my bibs!

  • Here is a running analysis of a follower as he runs!🏃‍♂️
🔍Overall, he runs pretty well! Similar to the previous follower I analyzed, changing how he runs would not be my highest priority; however, if I were to experiment with one thing👨‍🔬, it would be incorporating RHYTHM!
-
🎶The reason I would try implementing rhythm would be due to slight inconsistencies as he runs, such as a very occasional small overstride or slight delay in swinging the foot forward from push off. This may help him be more consistent with his running pattern!
-
🔑This could simply be done by listening to a metronome set to his preferred step rate during a run!
-
👇Let me know what you guys think about this analysis as well as any thoughts or questions you may have. I always appreciate the feedback!

🎥Shoutout to @salty_samu for the footage! I hope the feedback was useful!

A short run done at pace ... making the most of the limited time available to run today. .
Happy to have done it ... and my legs feel nicely “worked”. Also happy to  nab third place on a Hyde Park segment (runners of my ability don’t get to feature on Strava segments in London) 😎.

  • 🔥Breakthrough Race🔥

2019 Chicago Marathon will be a race that will always have a special place in my heart. It was the culmination of 13 years of hard work, determination, and grit.

To be honest, I was getting a little frustrated because I wasn’t able to PR at the marathon. This was my 21st marathon and I had run a sub 3 marathon 10 times. I really wanted to go sub 2:50.

Here are some changes in my training that led to my breakthrough race.

1. Slowed down. I slowed down significantly on my easy days. I made sure my heart rate stayed low on my easy days. I’ve been taking OptygenHP from @firstendurance which has been tremendously helpful with this. Check it out. So, slowing down on my easy days allowed me to recover better and go harder on my hard days. 
2. Sleep. When you are running you are just breaking down your body. You get stronger while you are sleeping. Ive has the best and most consistent sleep during this build up. A few things that have helped with my sleep: @thorneresearch Elite Multi Vitamin (PM for sleep), @organifi Gold milk, and @joovvsocial red light. Also, I moved my dinner to 5pm. One of the things that affect your circadian rhythm is WHEN you have dinner. This has allowed me to fall asleep faster and get DEEPER sleep because when you have dinner too close to bed time your body is working hard to digest the food.

3. Consistency. I have been consistent for the last 13 years. No injuries. Uninterrupted training. I largely credit this to having a coach. If you want to improve your running and stay injury free I would say get yourself a good running coach. Having a coach will keep you from overtraining and someone that can give you an objective look at your overall training program. 
I think many runners can benefit from these aspects of training. 
Do you find any of this helpful? 
What do you struggle with the most in your training?

  • #18 / STRETCH OVER STRESS. Stretch, stretch, stretch! Stretching improves flexibility and lengthens key muscle groups because let’s face it, runners are tight AF. I do hot yoga once a week and still can’t touch my toes. Make sure to give your body some tender loving stretches after running. Foam rolling enhances stretching by breaking up muscle tension and pushing new blood to fatigued muscle tissues. As @yourbestrunningfriend would say, don’t let your foam roller stare back at you like a disappointed parent while you Netflix and chill.

  • Зачем люди массово едут на север? Что они там делают? Для ответов на эти вопросы теперь есть моя новая рубрика "А мы уйдем на север!" по тегу #лера_насевер
⠀
Катя и Карина из @teens_intravel посетили 34 страны и пишут о нескучном отдыхе. А что может быть менее скучным, чем пробежать марафон в Норвегии?! Публикую их историю, в комментариях они ответит на все вопросы.
⠀
"Как-то за бокалом вина решили с подругой в сотый раз рвануть в Норвегию. Но теперь с лёгким спортивным извращением.
⠀
Записались мы на марафон по пересечённой местности в паре часов езды на поезде от Осло.
⠀
Я честно готовилась, не пила алкоголь, пожирала витамины. И в 8 утра стояла на стартовой поляне, покрытой инеем. В руках - карта на норвежском.
⠀
Побежали. Сначала грели носки, распиханные по карманам. Норвежский друг сказал: носки - это залог успеха. Но не дал инструкцию, как переобуваться на лету.
⠀
Отстать нельзя. Если ты прилёг в иней отдохнуть, ждать тебя не будут. И карта на норвежском с кружочками и линиями не поможет.
⠀
Через 4 часа мимо пронесся подросток лет 16. Он не бежал, а как бы парил, едва касаясь земли, на скорости км 60 в час. А я смотрела с завистью, вытягивая тем временем подругу из болота.
⠀
Счастье - это когда ты можешь остановиться на 30 секунд, выпить что-то сладко-теплое и запихнуть в рот мягкий бутерброд с бананом! По незнанию первый раз я пыталась совместить эти действия с переодеванием носков, но успела справиться только с одной ногой. Подняла голову, а вокруг уже никого. Больше не рисковала: либо еда, либо носки !
⠀
Но какой это кайф, когда на финише тебя встречают друзья. Кормят, поят, обнимают, поздравляют! И совсем забываешь, что бежал 6,5 часов по болотам и что ты грязный как шахтёр.
⠀
А вечером все бегуны собираются в баре! Это драйв, эндорфины и рост самооценки!"

  • La fruta, la mejor gasolina para el cuerpo! Si haces de ella tú principal alimento, estás dándole a tu cuerpo la mejor nutrición. Estos son rambutanes, una de las frutas que como más estos días, pueden caer 2-3 kg en una sentada, sin problemas. Porqué la fruta no se come por piezas, se come en cantidades. A partir de 1kg estamos hablando de una buena cantidad por comida. El resto son chorradas y conceptos erróneos de esta tan “inteligente” sociedad. Conceptos como: Fruta de postre 😆 cuando es la peor de las combinaciones que existe a nivel nutricional. Hay que comer un plátano solo ya que lleva mucha azúcar y mucho potasio 😆. La sandía después de una barbacoa para hacer la digestión 😆. Una pieza de fruta solo para merendar...pobre niño, el bocadillo de chorizo que no falte por eso...y otras liadas más, las cuales llevamos a la práctica a diario y por muchos años. Así nos va...lo peor, que nos pensamos que nos va bien, eso nos hacen creer. 
La fruta se come como plato único, hay que cambiar conceptos y hábitos si quieres beneficiarte de una alimentación fisiológica y adecuada para ti.

  • #tbt in the Runstoppable blog - A Runner's home gym for under £100.

Whilst shoes can be relatively expensive, running is actually quite a low-cost sport to do and do well. It doesn’t stop on the road or trail though, you don’t need a gym membership at all to get stronger for running purposes. 
Below is a list of the kit I recommend. There are other things you can buy but realistically you don’t need. I've provided links to some specific products below because they are the ones I use and have done for a long time. 
Resistance bands - £10-20
You’ll need a 1-2 medium bands and 1-2 strong bands, and around 1.5m in length (2m if you’re taller than 6ft). These can be used for core strength, technique drills, leg strength and overall conditioning of the body. 
Loop bands - £6-10
More for lower body strengthening by being placed around the feet, ankles or knees, these are great to add difficulty to small moves and for some lower body running drills like heel lifts. 
Mat - £15... article continues at https://www.berunstoppable.co.uk/a-runner-s-home-gym-for-under-100

  • October 16, 2016 | I ran my first marathon 3️⃣ years ago today! I’ve now run 6 marathons and have learned A TON along the way. Going to share my top 3 marathon tips over the next 3 days!

TIP #1 | Comparison is the thief of all joy (and will drive you crazy). Instagram makes it SO easy to compare everythingggg but believe me focusing on not falling into the comparison trap and doing what works best for you is key. I know I do best with low mileage and a solid mix of cross training but it’s still super hard not to worry and wonder if I’m doing enough when I see the numbers that everyone else is posting about. My highest mileage week was 40 miles and I only did one 20 mile run. Doesn’t seem like enough to run a 3:26 but it was... for me at least and that’s what I need to remember.

My recommendation? Work with a coach (mine is @run4prs.coach.victoria) to personalize your training plan and then show up, put your head down, and do the work.

  • Boundary Tips for Empathic Runners

This past Sunday’s marathon in Chicago required so much more boundary protection and maintenance that I had anticipated.

In Line Pre-Race
- Go inward and away from the people around you, not out of annoyance or disrespect for their experience, but because you know how to take care of yourself. I SHOW UP FOR MY NEEDS.
- Stand firmly on the ground and notice the connection with the earth beneath you. Breathe in and out through the soles of your feet and feel the energy pass between you and the ground. I AM RIGHT HERE.
- Fire your chakras open and dial them to an aperture that doesn’t leak too much energy out. I like 20%. I HOLD MY ENERGY.
- Call all of your energy back to you with a golden net and send it in through the top of the head. I CALL MYSELF BACK HOME.
- Set your aura to the appropriate size so that you feel safe. I chose 1 foot out around me. I AM CONTAINED.
- Place a psychic sigil that feels right and powerful for the moment. I AM PROTECTED.
- Fill yourself with the energy of the highest levels of self-validation, self-love, and self-assurance that you indeed can do this. I AM STRONG AND BRAVE.

During the Race
- Check in to maintain your boundary protection often. How do you feel? Are you leaking energy? Do you need to call energy back? How’s that sigil? I SEE YOU AND I’VE GOT YOU.
- You do not need to make eye contact with anyone. You do not need to high five anyone. You do not need to punch any poster for power. Hell no. These are energy losses. You can wish everyone well, but hold your responsibility to yourself. I PROTECT MY ENERGY.
- You do not need to change pace, drink gatorade, or do anything that others are doing. You set the rules for yourself based on your training. I KNOW MY NEEDS.
- Notice your thoughts. Any time the mind goes to troubling, judgmental, or anxious thoughts, send gold energy to the mind and fill it with light. I CAN RECOVER MY MIND.

Post-Race
- Whatever you need, you need. Listen to your body. Listen to your heart. Stretch. Wear that medal. Put your face in the sun. Have a beer or several. I RUN FOR ME AND I LOVE IT.

I hope these are helpful. Please share with your favorite runner!
  • Boundary Tips for Empathic Runners

    This past Sunday’s marathon in Chicago required so much more boundary protection and maintenance that I had anticipated.

    In Line Pre-Race
    - Go inward and away from the people around you, not out of annoyance or disrespect for their experience, but because you know how to take care of yourself. I SHOW UP FOR MY NEEDS.
    - Stand firmly on the ground and notice the connection with the earth beneath you. Breathe in and out through the soles of your feet and feel the energy pass between you and the ground. I AM RIGHT HERE.
    - Fire your chakras open and dial them to an aperture that doesn’t leak too much energy out. I like 20%. I HOLD MY ENERGY.
    - Call all of your energy back to you with a golden net and send it in through the top of the head. I CALL MYSELF BACK HOME.
    - Set your aura to the appropriate size so that you feel safe. I chose 1 foot out around me. I AM CONTAINED.
    - Place a psychic sigil that feels right and powerful for the moment. I AM PROTECTED.
    - Fill yourself with the energy of the highest levels of self-validation, self-love, and self-assurance that you indeed can do this. I AM STRONG AND BRAVE.

::
Both New and Seasoned Runners make a common mistake of running their shorter runs too slow and their long runs too fast.
::
::
Many new runners are under the impression that they have to start running longer before they start running faster.  While more seasoned runners often get so focused on their goal time for an upcoming event all of their runs end up focused on that pace.
::
::
This is a good workout option to work in once a week to get some speed work in without overly long work intervals.  If you are new to running (not yet running a steady 20 minutes) use the easy intervals to walk and the fast as your run interval.  If you are new to speed work, the fast intervals should be your best effort while maintaining form and the easy efforts should be very comfortable (consider a pace you could run all day).

  • Stats - Karina. 40y/o. Non-runner (I was always ‘sick’ when it was cross country or athletics carnival at school). Two children (3&5). Runner husband. 
Max walk time - 45min. 
18 mths ago I was walking just 8 min, before becoming sore. I was told I had arthritis in my back, two auto-immune diseases and to not run, lift weights or have any more children. 
Fast forward to now - I just turned 40, I’ve recently lost my dad, I’ve done a great rehab program, and I’m sick of feeling tired, weak, lazy and like I’m letting down Team Finnan. 
So I’ve decided to become a runner... Just like that! I need all the help I can get, so tag anyone who gives tips, coaches and inspires. I want to follow them/you!
