My first pair of trail running shoes.
Starting to get my kit together and arse in gear for next year’s @racetothestones
It’s not til July, but it will be my first ever ultra so I am using the year to mentally prepare for a 100km race!

What set out go be my awesome long run…of 2 miles, was sadly scuppered by my inability to use my new #garmin

Whilst messing around with it, I must have set it to intervals.
I never run with intervals under 5k anymore, so the buzzing on my wrist was distracting and instead of allowing me to enjoy my run, I spent the whole time clock watching, I also listened a few times instinctively to the vibrating on my wrist and began walking!

Live and learn, glad it happened now and not when it mattered, affected my pace, but my long runs during this training cycle are about endurance and not speed so perhaps this was a good thing 🙂 Run

Ugh I did not enjoy this run at all.
Perhaps I was underfueled or under hydrated, but it just sucked, every step.

I got in my own head and realised quite how far a marathon is and then began thinking negatively about my running ability.

This is how the training started last time, with every run being filled with doubt, need to remember how I kicked that shitty voice to the curb because ain’t nobody got time for that.

This is so important to me.
I will always correct someone if they describe themselves or another person as fat in my children’s presence.

One person (guess who?) said ‘well how do I word it when I want to say someone is fat?’
Well, how’s about you don’t say a fucking word negatively about someone else’s body? Mmmkay?
