Yesterday was Day 10 of my #runstreak 🙌 I did a couple miles on the track, pushing through the straights and recovering on the curves. I hadn't ran on a track in a while... It definitely brought back memories of running track in high school!
As a sport, cross country tends not to produce the same sort of highlights as, say, a rugby or soccer match so for a photographer it is important to look for other tools to help with image making One of the best things about shooting the cross country is that the races start quite early in the day — not as early as some of the rowing events I covered over summer but the sun does rise a touch later at this time of year And what that means is, so long as it’s not wet and miserable, the light is generally very good And occasionally the image becomes more about the light than the competitor With the season now in full swing I have added a page to my website devoted entirely to cross country (peterwade.photography/play/cross-country/) The images featured are mostly from 2019 but a couple from last year seem to have snuck in as well! I am always keen to receive feedback and happy to receive any comments or thoughts you may have — drop me a note either via DM or email (email@example.com) and I will be sure to respond.
Easy 3 mile run tonight breaking in my new #runningshoes 🏃🏻♀️😁 (one 6% hill for 1/2 a mile that you can definitely see in my heartrate 😂🥵) Im getting used to my fancy new @proform #treadmill 🤓🤓🤓 (well, new to me anyways 😉 thanks dad!) Its seriously awesome! It can decline to 3%, incline to 15%, and link to all these different workouts if you choose. Side note: I've been dealing with this ANNOYING heel pain since March and I got some advice to try a minimally cushioned running shoe. Hopefully the ability to feel more of my landing will help me correct whatever it is about my foot strike that is causing this. So that's why I opted for the #adidasadizero adios 4. And I've been spending less time on the pavement. So fingers crossed 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤓🤓🤓 Any running pains bugging you?? Ever experienced heel pain? Any tips??
Don’t forget to have fun. Especially in running I see many people pushing themselves to a point that it looks like an unwelcome pressure or a chore and that would be such a waste of time and energy. Keep in mind why you started next time you go outside, how far you already came and enjoy it.

Good morning! Trying my best to get back on track. The last couple of weeks have been tricky! It's been fun and festive but how I miss my routine! Even my food prep has been slacking! 😫 Glad to have gotten out for a quick 5km this morning. Happy Wednesday #fitfam! ✌️ 💗 . . . . . . #lovetorun#goaldigger#liveloverun#runnergirl#momswhorun#runforlife#motherrunner#womensrunningcommunity#womenofinstagram#canadianrunning#runtoinspire#runhappy#runner#runchat#fitlatina#latinarunner#corredora#peruvianrunner#marathon#halfmarathon#igrunner#werunsocial#inspiringwomenrunners#momswhorun
I love summer. And I love when it gets hot, and the sun ☀️ is out all the time (well, a bit more 😉) and we can do all the fun summer things, but as a runner it’s difficult when there was no real adjustment period for our bodies. We went from cooler temps straight into the hot and humid and while the sun brings much needed vitamins it can also zap our energy. And then we struggle. My body was overheating on last night’s run, add in I probably didn’t drink enough water and the fact that my calf is still bothering me and it wasn’t the greatest run. But the heat really stuck with me, so much so that when I got home I still felt hot, I didn’t even feel like eating and fueling after a run like that is important. So a little bit of foam rolling outside with my protein smoothie (nice and cold, the smoothie not outside 🙄) seemed to help. ___________________________________________________ The next two days are recovery days. And that’s exactly my plan: 1. Focus a little on strength training . 2. Rolling and stretching my calves (luckily so far it’s not my shins) . 3. Eating right . 4. Drinking plenty of water and replacing my electrolytes as well . 5. Quality sleep. My sleep has been struggling, not enough hours and even when it is their not quality.
