LMT W10 D7  What an amazing end to week 10!  The Fleet Half is definitely a race I will be back for.  Incredibly well organised, great route and amazing support all the way around the course!  And to top it all off a new Half Marathon PB!  An official time of 1:33:50.  It was also great to catch up with @melroy_dsouza around the six mile mark.  Thank you for your kind words. Really appreciated!  Next stop Eastleigh 10k next weekend however will need to complete a 20 mile long run on the Saturday so doubt I’ll be breaking any records.  Hope you’re all having an awesome day!  Happy Sunday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #fleethalfmarathon2019 #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #fleethalfmarathon #nikerunning #onrunning #fleethalf
LMT W10 D6  Just a short 3 miles in the plan today which felt just right!  Excited about the Fleet half tomorrow just hope the wind calms down a little.  Week 11 of training next week and we’re on the home straight, long runs build up to 22 miles and then its a couple of weeks of limited mileage.  Can’t wait to get on the starting line in London!  Anyway back to this weekend, who else is running Fleet?  Happy Saturday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W10 D3  9 slow miles today, however wasn’t as slow as it should have been!  Still really struggle to slow my pace down as much as I should but not going to worry about it too much.  Another run complete and edging closer to the marathon climax.  Fleet half this weekend and I’m looking forward to adding a new medal to the collection.  Happy Wednesday all.  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W10 D2  Can’t believe I’m in week 10 now with only 6 weeks until the big day!  Just an easy pace 7 miles tonight which I thoroughly enjoyed and decided not to worry too much about anything and just enjoyed the run.  A few busy weeks ahead of the marathon so may need to squeeze in runs and hope to keep off the dreaded treadmill.  Hope you’ve all had a great Tuesday!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W9 D7  Feeling completely exhausted and emotionally and mentally drained I didn’t think today’s run was at all possible.  I stayed local and repeated a route so I could bail out if I wasn’t up to it.  I managed the planned 20 miles and whilst it didn’t feel overly successful I got it done and can move into week 10 on a positive.  I’ve loved all the posts today and your success in your races really encouraged me to get out today so that you all for your support!  Enjoy your Sunday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W9 D6  50 days until the London Marathon and training still to plan.  Just a short steady four miles this morning and the weather was just perfect.  A couple of races to look forward to before the big day and another 20 miler to complete tomorrow.  Fitness is good it’ll all be mental from here on out.  Hope you all are having a great Saturday!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W9 D4  This week I lost my beautiful sister. She past away on Tuesday morning after a battle with sepsis.  I loved my sister so very much and she has been taken from us all far too prematurely.  We all deal with grief differently and I’ve always used running to take away the stresses and worries of everyday life but wasn’t sure I could run this week after this.  I had to carry on and whilst they’ll be some people out there who will judge me I know that my sister wouldn’t want me moping around, and she would want me to continue to achieve my goals.  So no hoorays about time and distance just happy to be on plan and enjoying thinking through all the memories I have of my sister whilst I run.  Love you always Dawn x  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W8 D7  Week 8 ends with a 15 mile long run.  Today’s run was not fun at all, relentless wind and horizontal rain which made me feel like I was running on the spot at times.  Going over the Itchen Bridge was hilarious, I thought I was going to get blown into the river!  Anyway job done, run complete, and looking forward to a perfect Sunday roast and a rest day tomorrow.  Well done to everyone that braved the weather for their long run today.  Happy Sunday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W8 D6  The plan only called for a 3 mile run today which felt way too short!  The plan said easy pace 27 min but I think I got a little too excited and was 6 minutes faster.  Long run tomorrow and it’s a slightly reduced 15 miles so hopefully that will feel a lot better having rested the legs today.  Happy Saturday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W8 D5  Rest day for me today but I’m gob smacked by my February mileage!  This is my biggest running month ever.  So many calories burnt and feel fitter and stronger than ever!  Happy Friday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W8 D4  Just a steady 5 miles tonight to end the day and to end February.  Nice and smooth tonight, felt totally in control of my pace and breathing.  Some days just feel right and today was one of them.  Looking forward to my rest day tomorrow before weekend running begins.  Happy Thursday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W8 D3  Not feeling that at all tonight.  I wanted nothing more than to sit on the sofa, have a pizza and relax.  So run done, calories burnt, stuck to plan and you know what............. I’m gonna have that damn pizza anyway!  Some runs are tough and tonight’s 8 miler was a tough one.  Legs heavy and aching and felt awkward but it’s over now and time to move on.  Happy Wednesday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W8 D2  This morning I had a full MOT at @nuffield.health and whilst I feel great, fit and healthy it was good to get this confirmed!  There are no shortcuts.  No miracles, diets or pills just plenty of exercise and a balanced diet.  BTW I still snack and I still drink but it’s all in moderation.  Going into my first marathon I want to make sure I’m in the best possible shape that also suits my lifestyle, and I’m super happy with my progress.  So today’s run was an easy 5 miles.  I felt great, it was still light and I pushed the pace a little.  Half way through training now and I’m starting to believe I can actually do this marathon, and maybe smash that sub four hours!  Happy Tuesday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W7 D7  If someone had told me two years ago I’d be able to run 20 miles I would have burst out in hysterics!  Can’t believe I’ve just managed that.  My longest run ever and ends week 7 of my London Marathon training.  I’m so thankful for the rest day tomorrow and will be soakings these poor legs for the next hour!  Thank you all so much for my donations so far and if you’re yet to donate please give what you can to the two incredible causes I’m running for.

LMT W7 D6  Good morning!  Plan called for a welcomed 4 miles today which was a pleasure to run in this beautiful sunshine.  Nice to get it done early so now I can enjoy the rest of the day.  Tomorrow is a 20 miler (gulp) so will need to ensure I have all the motivation and all the energy to smash that!  Happy Saturday all.  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
LMT W7 D4  I was convinced the plan only called for 4 miles today but oh no it was a 7 miler!  Calves pretty sore from yesterday’s run and I came close to switching out my rest day and doing it tomorrow.  So glad I cracked on and ran tonight.  First couple of miles felt tough but the rest felt pretty great!  Bring on rest day tomorrow!  Happy Thursday all!  #run #running #runner #runday #runningcommunity #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #runchat #ukrunchat #loverunning #lovetorun #motivation #marathon #marathontraining #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #hamblerunners #runhappy #instafit #runningmotivation #runnersworld #runnerslife #instarun #instarunners #runplanet #runaddict #nikerunning #onrunning #londonmarathon2019
