Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒ
Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒ
Just over a year ago, my left knee completely gave out during training for the Bristol Half Marathon;  my right knee was well on it's way out as well - I ended up having to pull out of the race and wasn't sure if I'd be able to do distance running again.
.
But after months of physio, I made some simple changes in my training regime including pilates exercises, stretching, ice baths and kinesiology tape.
.
Then at the start of 2017, I set myself my own personal challenge - I wanted to run the distance of a marathon over the course of the season, in a combination of 10K and Half Marathon races.
.
And here we are - I more-than-doubled my target after 4 Half Marathons and a Tough Mudder race, raised over Β£1,200 for Cancer Research UK, ran a final HM PB of 1:35:04 and my knees feel better than ever! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ’ͺπŸ˜€
This may mean I actually need to run a full Marathon now... Maybe next year πŸ˜‚.

TOUGH MUDDER 2017 πŸ’ͺπŸ‹οΈπŸƒ
.
On Saturday morning, braving the cold and the mud, we participated in the Tough Mudder challenge in Gloucestershire - Head-to-toe in mud, fully submerged in muddy ice water, clambering over 10ft walls and upward-inclined monkey bars for 10 miles before being brutally electrocuted (and mildly passing out). Utterly bruised and battered, and all before midday!

We're raising money for Cancer Research UK, in memory of James' dad who tragically lost his long battle with cancer last September.
