#tbt Almost seven years ago, I did a local 5k race to see if I could fall in love with running ... Well not really. I didn’t hate it but wasn’t disciplined enough to keep going. I may look a lot younger but I am definitely a stronger person today!  4 miles on the treadmill this afternoon then off tomorrow so I can be ready for weekend long runs! πŸ’ͺπŸ™ŒπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ#ageisjustanumber #40somethingrunner

Finally under 40 minutes on my morning route. There is very little flat running from my house. Instead of using that as an excuse not to run I accept my slower time and understand it is making me a better runner overall.

Ahhhhh, Sunday= long run day! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ it was tough with the South Georgia heat and humidity! πŸ”₯ 12 miles on books!! πŸ“š. Managed 12.02 at average pace 10:15 which is still a target pace my coach set for me... breakdown as follows: 10:17, 10:14, 10:19, 10:07, 11:16 (stopped to take pic seen on this post and I did not pause garmin), 10.01, 10:07, 10:19, 10:14, 9:33 (too fast according to plan 😬), 10:40, 9:43!! DONE! βœ… and, just let me add... my coach is better than your coach! Our long run loop goes right by his house.... andddddd... this morning, he NOT ONLY came out to greet us, but filled our water 🚰 bottles up with fresh cold water!! BOOM! How about that?! Awesome, right?!!! Well, we made our run today.... now, on with the day... hope everyone is having a great Sunday!!! Run today? Race? Humid in your area? More later.... xoxo

First run for a week for various reasons but mainly due to the snow and ice. Today is the first day that it has been worth risking a run. There is still a fair bit of ice on this route. Not my normal run but my local midweek route is still littered with fallen trees after the heavy snow. Had to slow the pace due to the conditions. It wasn't too cold at 2Β°c but was quite windy.  #runninginthedark #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #nightrun #nightrunner #ukrunchat #runchatuk #outsideismygym #runningtoloseweight #40somethingrunner #runfatboyrun  #runningfamily #asicsgel #asicsrun #silvatrailrunner

Tried to run to go for a run early this morning but didn't get very far πŸ˜‚. The snow and black ice was horrendous.  Couldn't do my usual Parkrun this morning either due to other commitments. As it turned out most were cancelled. Went out for a walk this afternoon for a few hours instead. #outsideismygym #thegreatoutdoors #parkrunuk #parkrun #winterwalk #snow #40somethingrunner #instarun #instarunners

Wet 4 miler tonight. Bargoed to Deri and back on the old track. Running in the dark in a tunnel of torch light and driving rain is a bizarre feeling. It can feel a little claustrophobic.

Great effort from my brother Jon yesterday. He came 1st in the Might Contain Nuts Brecon Beacons Ultra Trail Marathon winter race. My next personal running goal is to run an Ultra Trail Marathon along with my brother. I have a bit of work to do before I get to his level though πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚ I love being in the mountains.  My first trail run will be in March 2018. I'm starting off with a trail Half Marathon and going to work up to an Ultra. Got to get some Trail Running daps first. #outsideismygym #trailrunning #ultratrailrunning #breconbeacons #40somethingrunner #mightcontainnuts #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #ukrunchat #runchatuk

Another 4 miler up the old track. A cold, still, moonlit night. Just as well as my #silvatrailrunner  head torch died suddenly 2 miles in to a 4 mile run. Not the best place to run given the situation. A steep  sided, narrow in parts, tree lined valley with a river running next to what was an old railway line. There is no light for 2 miles between two villages. Pretty creepy even with a head torch. I could just make out the path with the moonlight. I finished in one piece though πŸ‘ #runninginthedark #ukrunchat #runchatuk #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #nightrun #outsideismygym #silva #bergansofnorway #asicsgel #asics #40somethingrunner #runfatboyrun #runningtoloseweight #scaryrun #runningcommunity #outsideismygym

A freezing cold Ponty Parkrun and that feeling you get when you get an unexpected  PB. Get in my son. #Parkrunpb #ukparkrun #parkrunuk #pontypriddparkrun #runningman #5krun #outsideismygym #40somethingrunner
Got up this morning feeling awful. Still do.  Put on a few layers, took some Paracetemol  and drove to Parkrun. It was freezing in Pontypridd Park. I was not expecting a great time. It was a case of getting around, going home and going back to bed. I warmed up and lined up. I set off as normal, head down, music on and jostled for position. I did the first half mile in 3:40 😨. It didn't feel quick but I slowed my pace a tad. I continued my pace which stayed consistent the rest of the way around. I hit the last straight and gave it the beans. My mate was tunnel manager and gave me my time. I had knocked 4 seconds off my PB. I felt baffled, happy and sick at the  same time πŸ€”πŸ˜©πŸ˜€. I didn't stick around. I have been sat on the couch wrapped in a duvet ever since πŸ˜•. #parkrun #ukparkrun #parkrunuk #5krun #parkrunpb #parkrunpontypridd #pontypriddparkrun #pontyparkrun #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #outsideismygym #40somethingrunner #runningtoloseweight #runningcommunity

Pelham Half in cold weather but very warm atmosphere! Pelham Half was one of most wonderful run events in my experience. Course was tougher than expected and complicated but everything was paid off by nice people in town, friendly runners, and getting 3rd place (1:33:43) in my age group. They provided even beer! I got beer in my prize gift. I love the glass! It is not like 20,000 runners half marathon events but Pelham Half&10K was as joyful as those events. Thanks, Pelham Half organizers, all people in town, and runners!

Alright.... Long Run today! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈThree goals today: (1) control pace! Goal pace was 9:50- 10:15 pace, (2) steady! Not only stay controlled, but at a steady pace, and (3) to get 14 miles in without any elapsed time of stopping... carried all necessary fuel and water with me! No stopping to even take outer layer of clothing offβ€” not so easy when hand carrying water.. lol... but, I did it! Glad there is no video at that point! πŸ˜‚I even zig zagged when traffic tried to mess up my running mojo!! Ha! I give myself a grade of β€œB” on reaching goals today because my pace was a bit faster than it should have been and not so steady. πŸ‘‰Break down: 14 miles in 2:16:33 which is an average 9:44 pace with splits: 9:58, 9:25, 9:32, 9:37, 9:56, 9:42, 10:05, 9:55, 9:35, 9:44, 9:53, 9:46, 9:44, 9:29. Will work on control steady long run paces in future. It is a must to achieve full marathon goal in March!! Hope everyone has a great Saturday!!! Christmas tree decorating for our family today! More soon xoxo 😘
Alright.... Long Run today! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈThree goals today: (1) control pace! Goal pace was 9:50- 10:15 pace, (2) steady! Not only stay controlled, but at a steady pace, and (3) to get 14 miles in without any elapsed time of stopping... carried all necessary fuel and water with me!

Is the world telling me something? πŸ€” This was my thought as I was leaving my house for the 3rd time this morning!!!! Seriously, I jumped in my car πŸš™ and headed down the drive way when I realized, I did not have my phone πŸ“ž. Ugh!!! With running solo πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ, my phone was a necessity .... therefore, I turned around and went back into house to grab it! Jumped back into car, reached then end of my street, and realized I did not have my garmin watch ⏱. or my road ID!! Garmin is a must because I know a route that is exactly 10 miles, but then I would have 4 more miles to go, and I am not good at judging distance.... as far as the Road? I HAvE to have it in case something happens to me, and I need to be able to let people know medical and personal information!! Very important!!! So, once again, I turned around...... 3rd time was a charm... off for 14 miles on plan! Happy Saturday! More soon.... xo

I have an exact goal time in my head, but not ready to say out loud.... coach dropped my training plan, and I have to say I am sooooo excited!!! Lots of varied paces and back to back to back long runs on weekends... I have a great amount of work to put in, but I am ready!!!! Most importantly, going to keep the mind strong!!! Have to keep my mental game in check!!! Today, 8 Mile steady Run was on tap.... 8 miles at average 9:20 pace with splits: 9:24, 9:20, 9:14, 9:23, 9:21, 9:12, 9:26, 9:13.

No. My training isn’t all about running! My goals are to become one of sexiest runners around my speed and one of fastest runner in gym trainees. Gaining weight and running fast are contradictory but I try!

After a cold, damp, windy Parkrun yesterday it was nice to wake up to a bit of sunshine. I put on the daps, daft norwegian hat thing and stuck some classic Whitesnake on in the cans. Started off nice and slow to start with a bit of dog slalom on route. The track looked amazing this morning. Tree lined, autumnal look, cold with no breeze. Nice to see a few other fellow runners out this morning. Don't normally see many this time of year. Picked up the pace a little on the return. Bit of air guitaring going on too  #ukrunchat #runchatuk #dogslalom #runnersofinstagram #runningtoloseweight #runningfamily #runningtokeepfit #40somethingrunner #instarunners #airguitarwhilstrunning #asics #bergansofnorway

Lacing up for a treadmill run again....cold & raining weather.  Still at it though! #ohioweather #c25k #ohiorunnerproblems #ohiorunner #brooksrunning #40somethingrunner
A bit of Parkrun tourism today. Took the shortish trip up the road to Tredegar and the lovely Bryn Bach Parkrun. It's a lovely Park with a huge lake in the middle. It was quite cold,  wet and breezy today . It is quite exposed up there being at the head of the South Wales Valleys. Quite enjoyed it despite the weather. Didn't stick around for the legendary free toast as the heavens opened near the end of my run and I got soaked. Made a sharpe exit to the car. Will definitely come back though. #parkrunuk #parkrun #brynbachparkrun #ukrunchat #runchatuk #runfatboyrun #runningtoloseweight #40somethingrunner #outsideismygym #5krun

I felt, as us Welsh people would describe,  a bit 'pwp' yesterday morning. Not one to feel sorry for myself I put my music on, put my head down and cracked on. I started way too quickly by listening to the Prodigy πŸ˜‚ and got pulled along by the much quicker club runners πŸ˜•. I must of been going too quick as Barrie Edwards passed me after 3k with a 'thumbs up'. Barrie normally passes me well before 3k πŸ˜‚πŸƒBy 3k I felt spent but good old Iron Maiden came on and saved me. I found another gear as Run to the Hills resonated in my headphones. With the little energy I had spare I found  myself doing a sneaky bit of air guitaring and drumming on the last km 🀘. On the final stretch that sexy Runkeeper ladies voice whispered gently in my ear '3 miles...time to sprint like a mad banshee' My legs said 'sod that' as I had nothing left. I didn't expect a great time. I also  forgot to stop my Runkeeper app πŸ€”. It was showing 26:30 by the time I remembered to stop it 😑. Fiona the lovely tunnel manager said 'great time Tronk' but she says that to everyone 😁. It turned out that I was only 7 seconds short of my Parkrun PB 😱. Bloody hell. Pontypridd is not as quick a course compared to the other Parkruns nearby but I love the characters, the park itself and the banter. My midweek 5km runs are getting quicker so hopefully I will get under the elusive 24mins sooner rather than later. Good to see my mate Neil Mac back after a long injury layoff running with his sister in law on her first parkrun. πŸ‘ #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #ukrunchat #runchatuk #parkrun #parkunuk #40somethingrunner #runningtoloseweight #runfatboyrun #5krun #outsideismygym

A bit of recon running tonight. Not one to pound the streets usually but with the icy nights coming I'll  need an alternative route.  This was a  steady run with a long uphill climb to finish.

Here I am coming across the @runrocknroll half marathon in Savannah πŸƒβ€β™€οΈfinish line 🏁 and realizing that I achieved an almost 4 minute PR at 1:44:52. At this moment, a million things went through my mind..... The entire half seems like a blur.... I do remember thinking β€œHoly Crap! I did it!” I will get together a race recap later in the week and put up on blog.... at 45, I was pleased with my run. I am grateful that all the stars aligned for me Saturday as they did for Shalane Flanagan on Sunday. Above all, I am grateful to be able to run. Running has so many ups and downs, but you have to look forward. My husband always says, β€œyou never know what tomorrow brings.” Still lots of work ahead for full in March... I have a goal for the full that seems out of reach for me, but then again, a sub 1:45 half seemed that way. Only way to know is to go for it!!! I have a great coach that I know will lay down a great plan... I am super nervous, but ready.... more soon! Happy Monday Folks! Xoxo😘

GET IN!!! I was not in the mood for a run tonight so.... I went for a run πŸ€”πŸ˜‚. Had no intention of pushing myself tonight. I added some Metallica to my running playlist and just set off up the old track. I ran to the pace of their music 😬😨. The Strava woman whispered my 1 mile split time in my ear. It was a bit quicker than normal. I normally slow after 1 mile as it continues to climb up to around 1.6 miles but I felt good.  My 2nd mile split was almost identical to the 1st and the 3rd mile even quicker as I headed back down the track. The batteries on my head torch then gave up the ghost with around 100 metres to go. I couldn't see shit.  I stopped tracking the run at 5km. I nearly keeled over. I had gone sub 24 minute for  5km for the first time since I was in my 20s 😁.

The original plan was to run a half marathon today. An ankle injury changed the plan to walking a 5k. Then the cold/flu changed the plan to staying on the couch watching the NYC marathon and football while planning for a return to running.

Today was the @runrocknroll Savannah Half Marathon!!! My goal time was 1:45:00, and I came in at 1:44:52..... talk about just barely squeezing in!!! I aimed for a consistent pace and managed to do that today. I am pleased with my time. I do have an awesome coach who has helped me get to the point I am... I am very grateful that he extends his services to an 40 something year old like myself! I managed to snag 4th in my age group as well. I was shocked and stunned when I crossed! So much so that I just simply stood still right after crossing! Even had an event person ask if I was ok... lol... I gave him a thumbs up and started to walk through finish shoot... I started running when I was 40 years old, and my first half marathon was like an hour more that I ran today!!! Seriously, my first half was like 2:46:something! And, to think at age 45, I would run the 1:44:52 just seems unbelievable.... if I can do this, anyone can! Just look forward... there were speed bumps and set backs at times, but you can only look forward! Happy Saturday! More soon! Xoxo😘
