Han sido 5 semanas de dedicación a esta carrera, y aunque a última hora mis ganas de correr se esfumaron,pude venirme arriba conforme iban pasando los km.
Corrí sin @jgimenob y eso lo noté,quizá por qué tuve que cambiar los planes de carrera a última hora y eso me agobio bastante.
El calor y la humedad a pesar de correr a las 9 de la noche estaban ahí,pero el ambiente era de 10.
Salí tanteando,quizá rápido,en el km 2 baje el ritmo ya que iba a 04:05 y ese no era el plan de carrera y @jgimenob me lo recordó. En el km 3 y algo me vengo arriba de nuevo y voy en progresión hasta el final.
Soy consciente de que soy la 5* chica,la gente me lo recuerda,a 50m de meta Juan me dice que soy la 1* senior y yo no sé ni cómo reaccionar.
Han sido semanas de entrenamientos acoplados a mí turno de trabajo donde he ido superándome poco a poco y donde soy las gracias a mi chico por aguantarme,soy consciente de que no soy una persona fácil.
7'2km 31'09 5* general y 1*senior. Primera carrera que gano de la categoría y seguiré entrenando y mejorando para estar arriba muy arriba😊💪🏻 voy a por más siempre acompañada de @jgimenob este podium va para él.
3 immensely talented and committed athletes took a crack at breaking the T-shirt Challenge World Record yesterday and had a great time pulling it off! Lots of fun, laughter, camaraderie, and a binding sense of community made yesterday a special one, with all proceeds from the day going to @therunbeyondproject, helping underprivileged kids achieve a sense of belonging, developing their confidence and creating a platform for them to grow via running.
Thank you @simon.wolnizer for reaching out to us to be part of something so special and "one-of-a-kind". There was never any hesitation in our part to get on board. You're a smashing runner and an outstanding mate! Keep going, we've got your back always!
Jess Baker, your smile radiated in each of the 60 (increasingly hot!) laps you took around the track and it was positively influential. You kept both boys on their toes, and best of luck in your 24 Hrs World's next weekend. We know you'll nail it!
Coach @davidcriniti, we love the work you do with The Run Beyond Project. It is a massive, selfless initiative and we are pleased to continue supporting the cause in whichever way we can. Your commitment and honest inspires us, and we wish you all the best in Berlin. 2:20!!
Without the immense contribution of key groups and people, the day would not have been a success. @athleticsnsw @sydney_striders @runningscience @nuunhydrationau, logic dump photography and the Sydney / NSW running family. Memories are only as good as the people in it, and all of you have made it a memorable one.
This one's for the kids. #worldomination

1 week post trail marathon.
Managed to keep an ACWR of 0.97 this week which I'm stoked about!
The whole week has been about just running to feel. I split the kms more evenly across the week than I usually do.
The last couple of days have been a huge battle, I ran really well averaging about 4:25/km on both days managing a low HR. But with some slightly longer kms and night shifts had me massively battling.
Here's the thing though; it won't be harder than that on race day. I knew this would be rough, I chose to do it & I've gained some good mental strength from it.
You can either use your adversity as an excuse or an advantage 😉
I hope everyone else is having a great weekend, congratulations to all those who ran SCTM!
Late #FlexFriday , or should I say #PostFlexFriday ! Today's adventures had to do with working on a Saturday, going to the gym, and falling asleep while watching "Lego Batman" with the kiddos! Today was chest and back day followed by a quick treadmill run. I've ran more than 3x this week which is an improvement because I haven't ran that much in 1 week for awhile! Anyways I'm off to bed, good night errrrbody!
