125 Days of Running!

I love running and over the past 10.5 years have become truly obsessed with it, especially going for the World Marathon Majors and having that as the big ultimate goal. Obviously I was supposed to do the Tokyo Marathon back in February and that was the first to fall to the coronavirus with only six days before the race that it was cancelled to none elite runners (and three days before I was due to fly).

Running: Great North Run 2018

D2703B77-1CD7-42B2-AA57-7B0C80381001

Last year I fell back in love with the Great North Run and it made me realise I could push harder with my running. So from that I did the Run Everyday in January challenge, Manchester and London Marathon’s in April and then the Sunderland half marathon and Gateshead 10k. Two events that I have added to my yearly events list. So in the build up towards this years Great North Run I was feeling tired. That is the easiest way to sum up how I have been over the past two months. July and August were a struggle as my legs always felt heavy when I was out running. Something I was so gutted about as in June I was back down to running 8:30 minute miles over long distances.

Running: Great North Run 2017

In the build up to this years Great North Run and my 7th year taking part I have been doing a lot of running. Not as consistent as I would like but it is tricky to fit in at times with working hours etc. But I guess I really did not realise how much this was going to play a part on the day until I was actually running.

Things I’ve done since the London Marathon!

Since the truly incredible experience of completing my first ever Marathon I have since done quite a lot of run related things!

  • New Running Trainers!

The first was to buy some new running trainers, as mine had clocked up a lovely 311 miles (just in running, not counting the many walking miles on cool downs home). So I had been looking at the Adidas Boost collection and instead of forking out £130 and not being sure, I decided to head to an Adidas outlet and lucky enough they had some in and I got a pair at a bargain price of £35 which I thought was perfect to test out and then look to get some more in the future!
