Bad back perhaps keeping me rested up, but I’m making big plans for the year ahead. I’m keen to revisit @iten_kenya a few times and meet more of you guys out there for @runnersheal , alongside #werunthis Water Project visits - earmarked for Turkana & Ethiopia where I shall hopefully catch up with @mamitumolisa once she has taken the @bostonmarathon by storm !! Not forgetting of course, mapping out plans for @acholajanet - who by the way, has her Commonwealth trials tomorrow back home in Uganda so let’s wish her the best of luck ! Right then... let’s go for it !” | Follow him for more.
For the past month or so I’ve been meeting my friend @runraquel half way in between our houses at the park for our 5:30 am runs. She runs there and I’ve been driving a mile to meet up with her. Today I thought, why am I not getting the extra miles in??? So I ran out my door and got 9 miles in by 6:40. 💥 #friday#riseandgrind#inknburn#bamr
Not all runs with my 8 year old are good. It definitely wasn’t a fun run for the lil guy today. Knew it was going to go bad when it was hard to get him out the door. Tried to push him during the run (which I now know I shouldn’t have) because he just got upset and went even slower. Lesson I learned today, just be happy he ran and don’t push it even though you know he can do better. 🏃🏽♀️🏃🏾♂️
Oldie but goldie! Das Bild habe ich gerade beim Durchklicken meiner alten Lauffotos gefunden. Das ist von 2015 vom @vivawestmarathon in Gelsenkirchen kurz vor dem Start. Das ist übrigens auch der Grund, warum ich noch so verpennte Augen habe ;-D Hier bin ich meinen ersten Halbmarathon zusammen mit @frolleinkokolores gelaufen. Die Geschichte, wie es dazu kam, finde ich ganz schön. 2014 bin ich beim VivaWest meinen ersten Halbmarathon überhaupt gelaufen. Janine stand an der Strecke im Zielbereich und war total begeistert von der Stimmung unter den Zuschauen. Kurz danach hat sie gesagt: "Nächstes Jahr laufen wir hier zusammen". Und das haben wir dann auch getan. Es war eine wunderbare Erfahrung und hat richtig viel Spaß gemacht. Einfach ein Moment, den ich nie mehr vergessen werde. Welche tollen Erinnerungen habt ihr an spezielle Wettkkämpfe und warum?
It’s the New Year and it’s time to get REAL.
Ever struggle with back pain doing glute kick backs? Here are some tips on how to get them on point ☝🏼.
▶️ make sure to keep your spine neutral and straight. DON’T move it during the excercise.
▶️ keep it straight bracing and locking in your core.
▶️ ALWAYS control the weight. Never throw it about. Use a weight that challenges you but allows you to keep your form. Form over weight!!
Please remember I am no personal trainer so these are tips I have picked up over the years. Take these tips and work on your form but consult a trainer if your still struggling💜
I truly do not know how all you winter snow runners do it, cuzzz I thought my face was going to fall off! 😆☃️
So hats 🎩 off to you all! 📝But on a better note, 3 miles with only a little dull IT band pain. Not going to push it though, just had to run in this snowy wonderland! 😍 I’m obsessed with it especially coming from a born and raised SoCal ☀️ girl that always wanted it to snow growing up - yeaaa that didn’t happen❌🤨Already so sad that it’s beginning to melt away! 😭❄️💧
💥Welp! Back to a lot more rehab, cross-training, and a little bit of running - which surprisingly has been pretty fun! 🎉 Oh and I signed up for the NYC lottery today too - crossing my fingers my name gets chosen! 🤞🏽Anyone else enter? Happy Tuesday and stay warm out there! 🧣☃️🧤 #runwithpurpose
