My first ever run was one evening last September. It was round the block and only a 10 minute run but I had to stop halfway round because my breathing was so rapid I thought I was going to die 🙈 however I persevered and then started going to @parkrunuk to do 5K. The first time I did that i was actually wheezing. But I kept going and it got easier. On my Garmin my intensity minutes are 150. I used to hit that on my 5K runs easily. Now I'm marathon training I've decided I want to do at least one 10k a week. I hated them at first. But now they are getting easier and I'm enjoying them more. I don't even hit my intensity minutes during 10ks any more! Ran 12 miles at the weekend. Been suffering with blisters recently but my @enertorglobal soles made it so much more bearable and my feet were fine! I'm doing my marathon with the best group of friends. We are all so supportive of each other. We have good days when we get out and run. We have bad days when we just don't have the energy too. But that's normal. It's fine! Yes I am proud of myself and how far I've come with running. And I am so proud of my team and just know they are all going to smash their goals. Let's do this team Premature Acceleration. We've got this! 💪🏻#teamprematureacceleration#wevegotitcovered#run#marathontraining#positivethinking#fitnessgoals#everydaycounts#runhappy#runnersofinstagram#mudderwoman#outdoorgym#outdoorfitness#fitfam#fitspo#fitstagram#pushingmyself#proudofme#bestfriends#happy
So last night I officially joined the vomit comit club 😷 No idea why but we're reckoning it was either the fish at lunch, the bottle of Diet Cherry Pepsi I necked back before the run or all the stress work is bringing at the min (it's been a very draining week) At about 3.5k I don't think I've ever run so fast to get to the toilet so I finished at 5k instead of the 10k I was supposed to do 😔 Massive thank you to @redfaced_runner @mice_and_mum_run for sticking with me ❤ And a humongous well done to this little legend @bradmannas for smashing out a sub 25:00 at his first ever @runthroughuk event & his first run for about 6 months! We're all proper proud of you babe's 💪 Lovely to see all the gang last night..... sorry I couldn't stay with you and well done to everyone you all TOTALLY smashed it!!! 😍 #runningfamily#fitgirl#thisgirlcan#vomitcomet#5k#recoverylife#edrecovery#recoveryisworthit#runforfun#runforabettertomorrow#runnerforlife#determination#justdoit#focused#running#runner#run
🌟🌟THROWBACK THURSDAY 🌟🌟
This post is from 2nd Feb 17. I was about 3 weeks into my running journey and I surprisingly accomplished a 5k run. .
When I watch this video back it all comes flooding back. The breathing, the feeling I'd given all I got. 5k back then was hard and was difficult to achieve. It took me 37 minutes to complete. .
7 months on and my 5k PB is 25 minutes and a 5km distance is a piece of cake even on a hard day.
I just can't believe I have actually stuck to this and not only that I am still doing it even after the main event being the Swansea Half Marathon in June.
I love running so much and the good it's brought to my life. .

This time last year I was on a very memorable trip to Iraq. Running in 45 degree heat at night was new! I met some incredible people and loved watching every day life in a local park; people running, walking and using a climbing wall. Apart from the heat it could have been South East London! Hope to be back one day. #tbt#running#travel#runnersofinstagram#iraq#erbil
