8 x 200m hill repeats + jog + 1.5-mile tempo. 16 smiles received through todayโ€™s smile challenge ๐Ÿ˜Š
If I can come back to this long stretch in Central Park, most likely I can reach NYC Marathon finish line even by walking...

HOLY FREAKINโ€™ COW was the words that kept repeating in my head today after running a PR in a local 5k.... I kept re-looking at my @garmin to make sure the time I was seeing was real.... 22:18!!!! Then, the event posted on a display board the final official time.... anddddd, indeed, my time was 22:18!!!! Average pace 7:18... Mile splits as follows: 7:11, 7:22, 7:21..... I am seriously over the moon! More excited over the time than the $50 I banked!!! (Of course the money is an added plus)... NEVER would I have thought I could run that time!!!! Slowly, progress is being made..... I am trying so hard to work hard now so that in 5 months I can achieve my full marathon time goal.... I am still extremely nervous about the full in March, but I am trying not to over-think things.... โ€œtryingโ€ is the key word.... it is so hard not to plug times into those fancy marathon time predictor calculators and not get freaked out when the predicted time is more than your goal.... lucky, I have a great coach that reminded me that I am training to run a full marathon in March that is 5 months away .... and, not planning to run full today.... my focus needs to stay on working hard with checking off my training runs one by one.... bottom line.. trust the plan!!! Days like today validate the plan is working ๐Ÿ˜‰ happy Saturday folks!!!

Finally ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‰. Under 25 mins on Parkrun and after a rather potent bottle of Cuvee Reserve Red last night ๐Ÿ‘. Jobs a good 'un. Sub 24 next? ๐Ÿค” Another 5lbs of weightloss to go though. #onwardsandupwards #ukparkrun #parkrun #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #runningtoloseweight #40somethingrunner #runfatboyrun #pontypriddparkrun #parkrunpontypridd #asics #underarmour #5km #parkrunpb
Easy 22K run in the park. Thank you for giving me 88 smiles/reactions, people in the park!
I traced last 2.5 miles of NYC Marathon course again...I may be crying when I will be able to come back running here in a month. NYRR Run Center was totally count down mode!
Oh center pic was taken in Jersey City after running and before working. .

Watchless!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌSo, this morning, I took my @garmin โฑoff the charger and it said, โ€œ100%โ€.... when I attempted to hook to a satellite, my watch turned off!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ I tried to turn garmin on and NOTHING!!!!

And, after many updates, I had no idea how to even get it started.....so, watchless it would be! Saw the coach that designs my training plans, and his input was, โ€œyou may run fearless today.โ€ I toed the line, and before I knew it, I was off! Strangely, I felt a sense of freedom! Not once did I feel tense in my shoulders like I usually do.. there was no looking at watch and thinking โ€œrunning too fastโ€ or โ€œhave to pick up paceโ€... and, there wasnโ€™t any repeated math calculations in my head.... I was left to simply just run! It was liberating, and I came in 2-3 seconds of a pr... no official time, but I think the clock said 22:39 or 22:40.... may ditch the watch more often ๐Ÿ˜‰

You would think that I'd be happy with that. 19 seconds quicker than my last Ponty Parkrun and another PB. Had a sickness bug Thursday night and most of Friday courtesy of my son Dewi. Having eaten very little in 48hrs I was not going to bother doing Parkrun. I felt ok when I got up this morning so thought I'd give it a go as it was Pontypridds 4th Anniversary run. My run started really well but by 3km I felt like crap. I kept going but the legs were spent. I crossed the finish line expecting a really crap time. My running app said 24:58. I was not expecting anything like that time so was quite pleasantly shocked.  Normally my official Parkrun time is a second slower than my app time. Was I finally going to go under 25 mins? No....was I hell.  My official PR time came through as bang on 25 mins๐Ÿ˜ฃ ๐Ÿ˜ญBloody typical ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜‚ I am beginning to get a feeling that my sub 25 min Parkrun target is jinxed ๐Ÿ˜‚. My 5k times have been well under 25 mins on my evening training runs so it's only matter of time ๐Ÿ˜. #arrrgghhh #parkrunuk #parkrun #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #frustration #outsideismygym #parkrunpb  #spittingmydummyout #runchatuk #ukrunchat #40somethingrunner #runfatboyrun #runningfamily #runner #craprunner #personaljourney

Not sure what's got into me lately. My times are getting better each week. My hamstrings are no longer creaking which may be why my times have improved. Another 6 lbs to target.  Helped along by some great new tunes from 1000 Mods. Great running tunes if you're a hard rock person. #1000mods #runnersofinstagram #runchatuk #ukrunchat #5krun #instarunners #outsideismygym #40somethingrunner #onwardsandupwards #runningfamily #asics #silvatrailrunner2

Penallta Parkrun 30.09.17 Another PB.  Getting closer to my next target of a sub 25 minute Parkrun and another 6 pounds to shift. Held back by too much Merlot๐Ÿท the night before no doubt ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Did Penallta Parkrun today. Pontypridd was cancelled. Wetter than an otters pocket. Tried to get under 25 mins today but it was not to be. Started nearer the back of a quite narrow starting area. Took around 10 seconds to pass the startline. Very hard to pass people for the first 150 yards. Lovely route though and a quick course. Got a PB and got to elbow an old mate  in the ribs. Weightloss is still on track. Another 6lbs to go.  Bonus!!!๐Ÿ˜ #runchatuk #ukrunchat #runnersofinstagram #penalltaparkrun #runningtoloseweight #instarunners #40somethingrunner #asics #runfatboyrun #parkrun #parkrunuk #outsideismygym #runningfamily

NB Bronx 10-mile. I was totally dead after 7 miles...but enjoyed the race. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Bottom-middle pic is the last but one (actually two) of most beautiful finishers! I always love those people who never give up! Also Mr. Peter Ciaccia, NYRR's president had been welcoming finishers until the last moment, as usual. Thanks, Peter. Thanks NYRR (even an NYRR staff who I met in the subway was super nice!). Thanks runners for giving me motivation!

Life! This week has been all out of sorts with hurricane Irma ..... everyone out of routine, out of power, some with home damage, linemen working non-stop, etc. Despite all that, life goes on! There is still school, work, etc. It was truly an exhausting week.... not complaining, but telling the truth. I speak for everyone! It was a challenging week of reminding self to be thankful things weren't worse, to try to stay positive, to think of those who had it and still have it much worse, and pushing self to stay on training schedule. Today, on training plan was either a 5k or max run..... friends registered for a local 5k motivated me to run the 5k. Now, I am going to keep it real..... when my alarm went off this morning, I did not want to get up and go run! I was tired! The week has definitely caught up with me.... but, knowing my friends were going to be at 5k gave me the motivation to get out of bed and lace up my kicks! I ran my warm up mile and felt ok.... then, I toed the start line and it was a go! Now, I am going to sound like I am contradicting myself..... I had a good run that felt like a blah run.... let me explain... again, keeping it real... 5k with official time 22:50 (as per event)... garmin stated 3.05 miles at 22:51 (7:29 average pace) with mile splits: 7:21, 7:36, 7:32. It was a small race and I was actually first female in the 5k. It truly was a good run. However, not going to lie, after the first mile, I actually thought about stopping and just hanging it up.... no, my legs were not tired... physically, I felt great... but, I was mentally tired (judge if you like... call me weak minded, but if I am honest, I am mentally exhausted.... however, I am not a quitter... in my mind, I was yelling at myself saying "suck it up buttercup!" Kept telling myself body felt good, and that I was just mentally weak!!! Yes, I was fighting in my brain.. lol... but, I kept the push! Oh, and the good ole South Georgia humidity is back!!!!!! None-the-less, i kept the mental push in my head for the entire 5k.... I was pleased with my time. I was glad to be finished with the run! Another run checked off the training schedule and miles in the bank!!! Looking forwardโœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜
Life! This week has been all out of sorts with hurricane Irma ..... everyone out of routine, out of power, some with home damage, linemen working non-stop, etc. Despite all that, life goes on! There is still school, work, etc. It was truly an exhausting week.... not complaining, but telling the truth. I speak for everyone! It was a challenging week of reminding self to be thankful things weren't worse, to try to stay positive, to think of those who had it and still have it much worse, and pushing self to stay on training schedule. Today, on training plan was either a 5k or max run..... friends registered for a local 5k motivated me to run the 5k. Now, I am going to keep it real..... when my alarm went off this morning, I did not want to get up and go run! I was tired!

Irma took power from my treadmill, but I still had the track!!! 6 miles done! Last of miles for the week.... thank goodness for rest day tomorrow!!! I have to admit, I am all out of sorts without having a "normal" routine.... And, now that my son returns to school today, it is a bit stressful.... and, I admit, I caved and packed my stuff up so that my son and I could stay with my parents last night who have power. In times like this, you have to put things in perspective.... my current stressors DO NOT compare to those returning to flooded homes, those living out of hotels and not knowing what is next, the lineman who have been separated from their families, people who have challenges on a day to day basis with health issues and such..... this will pass... things will get back to normal..... just have to look forward..... running teaches us that at moments when you want to give up, you just have to put one foot in front of the other. Hope everyone has a great day.... think positive (telling myself this)..... โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

Still no power since Hurricane Irma came through, but the sun is starting to shine โ˜€๏ธNo power= no operating treadmill!! Therefore, before sunrise, it was off to track for 6 recovery miles!!!! Then, it is off to Ymca to shower! Heck, I hardly go to the Ymca, but my monthly fees are worth it for a shower ๐Ÿ˜œ. Trying to keep training on track.... long run Sunday prior to Irma's arrival, strength Monday when she was here, speed work on a trail near house, and 6 miles running in a circle โญ•๏ธ on local track!!! Boom! ๐Ÿ‘Š take that Irma!!! Well, doctor appts and then to work I go... kids still out of school. Still, very blessed... many have home damage... they need put prayers as they try to get their lives back together. Have a great day! More soon... peace out โœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜˜

Hurricane Sunday = Long Run Day! With historic storm Irma on her way, I debated whether to run outside or face the treadmill (AKA Dreadmill).... well, I thought ๐Ÿค”, Irma is just now hitting south florida and Jim cantore is no where to be found in South Georgia.... soooooo, yeah! Damn straight! I am going to RUN!! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธI mean, gotta get the long run in prior to Irma getting here tomorrow! Plus, kinda calmed the nerves from the approaching storm and expected power outages and such.... Also, I have a goal to PR in the RNR Savannah half marathon in Nov!!! Anyway, long run was awesome! No humidity! Breeze entire time and slight sprinkle rain..... seriously felt great entire time!!!! I managed the 13 miles on training plan at an average โžก๏ธ 9:25 pace with mile splits as follows: 9:58, 9:29, 9:30, 9:17, 9:35, 9:04, 9:21, 9:32, 9:19, 9:15, 9:27, 9:13, 9:17. Now, to pick up last minute things, get a shower, a settle in for the approaching storm.... stay safe folks!!! Xoxo๐Ÿ˜˜

The Cardiff 10k last week. I am NEVER running with that running belt again. The strap broke 6k in to the run and my mobile phone fell out along with my small stash of jelly babies. I lost two minutes as a result. ๐Ÿ˜ก Good event though. #cardiff10k #runningfamily #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #outsideismygym #40somethingrunner #ukrunchat #runchatuk #runningtoloseweight
Squeezed in a 10k run ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธprior to Hurricane ๐ŸŒซ๐ŸŒŠIrma makes it this way!!! A friend of mine that was registered couldn't get through traffic in Valdosta to make it to the race ๐Ÿ˜”.... Valdosta is saturated by people that evacuated from florida.... I couldn't even imagine having to leave my home. Anyway, I actually PR'd!!!!!!! Woohoooo!!! Official time 47:39!!! I am happy with that time! To my surprise, the run was mainly a trail run!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ everyone that knows me is aware that I DO NOT like to race on trails!!! I love running trails, but not at race pace!!! Anddddd, I am not sure what happened with my garmin โฑ, but it went bonkers! Therefore, I don't have my mile splits. Someone has suggested completing resetting Garmin... hope that works!!!! You know, during my full marathon I had a watch mishap ..... after today, I am really considering wearing 2 watches from now on... lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ I did win a $50 gift card!!! That was pretty sweet! Then, I called my husband as I left the race and was heading to grocery store to see what I needed to pick up.... andddd, my son's only hurricane preparation requests was donuts!!! ๐ŸฉSo, I swung by dunkin donuts to pick some up!!! Good day.... now, finishing up laundry ๐Ÿ‘š๐Ÿ‘•๐Ÿ‘–and such because it is pretty certain we are going to lose power when Irma gets here Monday!!! Happy Saturday! More soon! Xoxo๐Ÿ˜˜

Cardiff 10k. Bizarre run this morning. Took it easy to start and planned to increase my pace in the second half of the race. First 5k went to plan. At 6k  my running belt fell off and discarded it's contents of jelly babies all over the road. My bluetooth headphones then decided to unpair themselves with my mobile. Lost of few minutes but not too bothered. #cardiff10k #runningfamily #runningtoloseweight #outsideismygym #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #ukrunchat #runchatuk #runfatboyrun #40somethingrunner #jellybabies #jellymassacre #gadjethell

Catch up Monday...... been meaning to make a post ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป all weekend, but never seemed to get a chance. Anyway, solid week of training last week! ๐Ÿ‘Š so, let's breakdown Saturday, Sunday, and today's runs..... Saturday: max run 2 miles with goal pace 7:05-7:10 with one mile warm up and one mile cool down:
1 mile wu: 10:27
2 mile max run with 60sec rest between: 7:02, 7:14
1 mile cd: 9:20 
It was so hot ๐Ÿ”ฅ and humid ๐Ÿ˜“- but, got it done! Thennnnn, ran into my friend Arlene @crazygrandmarunner when I was about to leave track!!!! I hung around and kept her company on her max run!!! So fun! 
Sunday- long run! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ11 miles at an average 9:50 pace. I was meeting up with a friend who happens to be the coach of one of the local high school  cross country teams.... she brought the entire team too!!! Great big crowd! Kinda fun to run with the young whipper snappers. Anyway, for the first 3 miles, my pace was faster than what was on my plan.... I could hear the voice of my coach echoing in my head.... "too fast, week day runs will suffer".... I then slowed and ended up chatting with one of the girls from the cross country team..... super sweet! So fun! When she finished her 6 miles (which actually turned into 7 for her because we got a little lost ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) I met up with my friend again and finished out the 11 miles with the break down as follows: 9:55, 9:06, 9:35, 9:39, 10:48, 11:06, 10:10, 9:33, 9:38, 9:40, 8:54.... and all that averaged to a 9:50  pace ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€ Today, Monday.... 6 recovery miles on treadmill at 9:32 pace average. Now, on with the day!!!!!!!!! My mind is now focused on goals ahead!!!! ๐Ÿ’ช 
Happy Monday!!! How was your weekend? Do tell! I would love to hear!!!!! Xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜

When she finished her 6 miles (which actually turned into 7 for her because we got a little lost ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) I met up with my friend again and finished out the 11 miles with the break down as follows: 9:55, 9:06, 9:35, 9:39, 10:48, 11:06, 10:10, 9:33, 9:38, 9:40, 8:54.... and all that averaged to a 9:50 pace ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€ Today, Monday.... 6 recovery miles on treadmill at 9:32 pace average. Now, on with the day!!!!!!!!! My mind is now focused on goals ahead!!!! ๐Ÿ’ช Happy Monday!!! How was your weekend? Do tell! I would love to hear!!!!! Xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜

Tempo Wednesday! ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธGoal pace as per training plan was 7:40- 7:45. I had 3 miles of tempo to perform. I started with a mile warm up at a 10:38, 3.01miles at 7:45 average pace (hit goal target pace-yay!!!) with mile splits as follows:  7:44, 7:51, 7:41.  I was pleased! It is tough in this South Georgia heat ๐Ÿ”ฅand humidity. I followed with a mile cool down at 9:20 pace. Then, walked a mile. Last week, I goofed or had a blonde moment ๐Ÿ™„, and thought in my head goal pace was 7:45-7:55.... and ended up with 3.01 miles average pace 7:48 (I was thinking in my head- stay around 7:50 because I thought this was the mid road of goal pace, but actually greater than goal pace)....Splits: 7:50, 7:58, 7:39. Lesson learned, check training plan prior to heading out! LoL! Oh well, coach still said it was a great run considering weather.... so, little by little, progressing. Looking forward at goal to pr half in November! Time to beat is my PR of 1:48:59....... we shall we, but for now, have to keep on grinding! Happy Wednesday folks! Xo ๐Ÿ˜˜

It was a slowwwww start with a mile walk (3:30am wake up call makes it hard to jump out of bed straight to treadmill), then one mile warm up mile, stretched a bit, and then 3 mile tempo.... last one mile cool down.

I struggled getting myself out of bed ๐Ÿ›Œthis morning.... and, once I laced up ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ, I debated whether to go to the track or not..... I went back and forth... treadmill? Track? Treadmill? Track? ๐Ÿค”Finally, I said, what the heck.... and, I jumped into my car ๐Ÿš—and headed to track. Then, there was the decision to run 2 mile max run ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธat 7:05 pace or run 8x400..... I decided on 8x400.... so, I ran a one mile warm up at 9:59 paceโžก๏ธthen on to the 400s (0.25 mile) which were as follows: 1:42 (6:50 pace), 1:36 (6:28), 1:38 (6:34), 1:41 (6:46), 1:39 (6:57), 1:43 (6:54), 1:42 (7:06), and 1:39 (6:39). I followed with a one mile cool down of one mile at 9:15 pace. I was pleased.... it was so hot ๐Ÿ”ฅ and humid this morning!!! Hopefully, with pushing through these temps, come fall, I will see benefit.... at least I hope! Hope everyone had a great Saturday! More soon! Xoxo ๐Ÿ˜˜

I decided on 8x400.... so, I ran a one mile warm up at 9:59 paceโžก๏ธthen on to the 400s (0.25 mile) which were as follows: 1:42 (6:50 pace), 1:36 (6:28), 1:38 (6:34), 1:41 (6:46), 1:39 (6:57), 1:43 (6:54), 1:42 (7:06), and 1:39 (6:39). I followed with a one mile cool down of one mile at 9:15 pace. I was pleased.... it was so hot ๐Ÿ”ฅ and humid this morning!!! Hopefully, with pushing through these temps, come fall, I will see benefit.... at least I hope! Hope everyone had a great Saturday! More soon!

NYCRUNS Ice Cream Social 10K! As following homework given by my coach, I tried to get negative sprits. Starting from a pace of 4:40/km, gradually increased speed to 4:07/km. I think I did well. Of corse, ice cream as rewards was awesome.

Not a bad time. Getting closer to the PB. My next target is to get under 25:30 then under 25 before the end of October. Neil is on barcode duties today ๐Ÿ‘ after picking up his first running injury. First time I have run quicker than him ๐Ÿ˜œ. Knocked up my favourite post Parkrun breakfast to celebrate ๐Ÿ‘ #runnersofinstagram gram #instarunners #ukrunchat #runchatuk #parkrunuk #parkrun #pontypriddparkrun #40somethingrunner #runfatboyrun #runningtoloseweight #runningfamily #outsideismygym
