Doing things I've never done to get myself to where I want to be 🌟🌟 This includes being 42 miles into a 60 (!!) mile week. I know I can't keep doing the same things and expecting different results. Focusing on higher weekly mileage to build endurance and strength in my legs, slowing down the training paces (I know, still in progress...), and more marathon pace specific workouts.
Today I alternated between slightly faster miles (7:47-7:53) and slightly slower (8:06) for an average pace of 7:54. It felt good 💪🏼 I added slightly faster miles because I want that 8:00 to feel perfectly comfortable. I admit the first 2 miles of this felt awful - legs were heavy and tired from all the miles this week! But by mile 3 I felt much better and then I got into a groove and the paces felt relaxed. Never judge a run by the first couple miles. All the miles means I've been seriously prioritizing sleep this week...all the fuel, all the sleep. 🍌🥞🥑😴🍞🍣🍳 #running#training#marathontraining#marathongrind
Thank you Birchwood and S4 Auto for the amazing run! You guys were great! There were so many water points and marshalls and that made all the difference! 😀
Well done to all the runners today, especially to my parents for their amazing times! 🏆🏅 This was my first time running in my @Discovery_SA vest, and personally I think orange is my colour 😜 #TeamVitality 👕👟 I ran 10km in 1hr03 (😀😀😀😀) and while that is my personal best, I was aiming to run a sub-hour, but I'm still super proud of myself! 😝😄 My next goal is to run a 21km, without dying 😂
And yes, that is what I look like without make up and covered in sweat😝😂👧 #sundayrunday#10km#running#asics#birchwoodhalfmarathon#fitbit#crosstheline#tiucheckin#tiusouthafrica#toneitup#fitspo#TIUteam#medal#sweat

Sunday mornings at the foggy Maine coast ... Thanks again for those awesome days @pedroandjackie
FINISHED 😃 Me and @reuben_nourished_life all smiles after a massive test of the mind and body. And even though I asked myself at least 100 times "Why the f@!k am I doing this?" I would gladly run it all again 👊🏽 Recap of my thought processes before, during and after this race to come. Stay tuned ✌🏽️
Heerlijk smeerbaar biologisch broodbeleg zonder toegevoegde suikers en palmvet. Waarom? Suiker onttrekt bij de vertering veel waardevolle mineralen aan een kinderlijfje. Zonde natuurlijk! Daarom bestaat onze Appel & Peer stroop uit alleen maar ..... appel en peer. En palmvet is vaak gehard en daarom zwaar belastend voor kleine lijfjes. Dat hoort natuurlijk niet in pindakaas.
