Run your Age!
Wie jedes Jahr am Geburtstag, bin ich gestern 26 km (26 Jahre) bei bestem Wetter☀️gelaufen! Kurz/kurz im Januar🙈 so bleibt die Jamaika Bräune noch etwas erhalten 😅
Noch sind die Geburtstags-Longruns ein Genuss! Mal sehen wie es wird, wenn ich älter werde 😅 habt ihr auch eine coole Idee? Auf die ich dann mit vllt 60 ausweichen kann? 😋
Schönen Start ins Wochenende 💕

Man am I glad that's done!
Sunday long (ish) run turned Friday long run this morning, so that I can relieve myself of the pressure while I head away today for a weekend trip to Edinburgh!
Sore, tired legs from start to finish annoyingly today and I did struggle. Unsurprising since my body probably knew Fridays are usually rest days.
But it's now done and that's the face of pure relief. I've got a provisional plan to hit Portobello Parkrun in the morning but I will most definitely play it by the amount I eat and drink tonight (the much bigger priority, obviously)
The week is on 67km so if more miles aren't done this weekend, it wouldn't be the worst outcome but keen to not let the 80km weekly target slip.
HEADING INTO THE WEEKEND LIKE 🏃🏾♀️💨
Anyone else happy this week is coming to an end, and we can finally head into the three-day weekend?! 🙋🏾♀️ME!! It’s been tough getting in all my runs and workouts this week, especially because I’ve been trying to cram everything in before work. 😫 My body has been super pooped lately, but it was my first week into training with Coach Cat and a killer speed sesh. I’m looking forward to lots of yummy food and easy running the rest of the weekend! 🙌🏾
👉🏾What are your weekend plans??

Super excited about the following days 😱
Starting into the weekend with less training then usually... In preparation for the next race 🙌🏃🏼♀️
I had some fun time with the second track session and coach started to complete my schedule with some strength exercises and treadmill training 🥵
At first it was quite challenging to run without any rain💦 or wind🍃 to accompany me, but now I'm beginning to appreciate it 😅👍 Do you prefer to run outdoors or in the gym ? 🙃

I highly recommend this marathon, it's a beautiful route and an amazing atmosphere. It's quite flat too which is ideal because the temperature in Paris in April isn't always as cool as you'd like for a marathon.
This was my fifth marathon and I finished in 2 hrs 52 mins, which was a PB at the time.
I was delighted with the time and, looking back on the training I did for it, I'm still proud of it because I didn't prepare anywhere near as thoroughly as I would now.
I was only doing a few runs a week- one long run 18-20 and two middle distance runs. I wasn't doing any speed work, and I made the mistake of going all out in every training run.
Still, I enjoyed the whole process, from training to crossing the finishing line. That's what matters most; enjoying the entire journey.
I train more now and I implement more efficient training into my preparation. Those changes have only increased my love for running which is crucial when investing so much time and effort into something. I feel very strongly about savouring the process, especially as just a recreational runner.
I've always pursued sports that make me happy rather than trying to invest time into something that I'm not passionate about in the hope that it'll yield a positive outcome. That's been key to forming healthy, lasting habits that have positively impacted my life.
