Photo from #manchesterhalfmarathon today. Looks like I am catching some zzzzz, maybe because of the 4:30am alarm. 📸 Credit: Jon-Paul Kearns.

This week was almost a write-off. My cold came back on Monday and then my youngest went down with a sickness bug. I didn't get the full symptoms but didn't feel well.😫 I still managed to run but it was very slow up until Friday when in the afternoon I did a 3.5mile at M pace to see if my breathing was ok.

It was great to get on the elite start and see so many people that I knew, some from social media and others I had race with beforehand.

The race stated perfectly for me, at 4 mile in 20 mins, right on target pace, in a big group and feeling comfortable. The group started to slow a little, faster runners were too far up the road (and too fast) so I tried to help out at the front but it's not somewhere I feel comfortable with, so early in a race.

I decided to stick with the group and as it broke up, I went with it.
In the last few mile there were 4 left, including @callumrowlinson on course for another PB. My watch was indicating I could still PB but it was not reading accurate as the final distance said 13:38mile 😣

I finished up 6th in 67:28 in a quality field

A big shout out to all the volunteers today in awful conditions 👏👏👏👏 #run #runner #running #ukrunchat #worlderunners #instarunners #instarunner #stravarun #swiftandeager #runnersworld #runnersworlduk #irun #runnersofinstagram #runnerslife #tiptonharriers #runitfast #runningcommunity #runforlife.

Well that’s #manchesterhalfmarathon in the bag and along with it my 2018 race season.
Struggled today if I’m honest, hoped for 1:45, got penned in for most of first mile which set me back and my legs wen from about mile 9 which battered my splits.
Not a huge fan of longer distances but this was important as raising money for @mariecurieuk and also exorcising the demon of Sheffield 2014 DNF (my last crack at HM).
Im not disappointed with my time, glad to get it done! How was everyone else’s race?

Manchester Half Marathon you were emotional. @mcrhalf .
I don’t think I’ve ever been so wet and so cold. No PB for me today but I know I should be glad to finish under 2 hours - 1:59:12.
.
Nothing went right for me today and I’m writing this sat in the car having a bit of a sob. 😞
.
Traffic was awful this morning, I couldn’t find the car park I’d booked, had to abandon my car and then started much too far back and got caught up for the first mile. After that I just couldn’t find the extra few seconds I needed each mile to get me back on track for 1:57.
.
Missed meeting up with some friendly faces and it was hard starting and finishing all on my own.
.
So, @ronhilluk run everyday October... that’s day 14 done. And once I stop shivering I’m going home to cuddle my girls.

Ah man what a face of pain 😬 and such bad form 🤣 all the more to work on to get better though right. *
Dinosaur 🦖 arm is still there, but I think this photo is from quite late on so that can be allowed *

Today’s workout was incredible tough.
It consisted of 3 x 3 mile efforts running at 5.40-45 minute mile pace.
The recovery was 1mile, run at under 7.00 mile pace. It’s so tough to keep the pace going during the recovery phase of the workout.
16 miles for the day and 92 miles for the week. 2 easy recovery running days will be followed by my final tough workout before the #manchesterhalfmarathon next weekend. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿👍

Leaving the office on a Friday like....
.
.
Come on boys keep up, last one gets the beers in.
.
.
Finally starting to feel a little better, but as I learnt the hard way in the past, it’s better to have couple more days rest.
.
.
Have a great weekend everyone, good luck to those racing #autumn100 #manchesterhalfmarathon and #yorkshiremarathon

#flashbackfriday to #fortwilliammarathon in 2016 also known as the one with the broken foot.

Time for another shot! .
.
Another lesson learnt on Sunday that I can take into the Manchester Half, Manchester will probably be my last shot at the time in a half marathon this year, again I’m ready to give it my all💪🏼 I wouldn’t normally take gels within a half but at Oxford I tried and failed, took a gel that I knew agreed with me just definitely feel I took it at the wrong time .
.
When I know I have races back to back I’ll keep the mileage nice and low and the pace just ticking over. 5 mile Club run tonight and then 1 day of complete rest and a little shake out on Saturday!

I think this face sums up what two weeks off running, beer and eating too much feels like.
Injured after Lincoln 10k so a steady 5k tonight to get back on it. Had a sneaky peek at Manchester half marathon in 4 weeks... 🤔
Not sure about that?!?!?

For someone that likes doing physical activity pretty much every day, this past week post Paris marathon has been rather tough - a very tight calf has meant a lot of stretching, foam rolling, slow walks and not much of else. And considering I had three weeks out of action before the marathon, I’m really missing it! I had to listen to my body though, and I could tell it really needed a bit of time off to recover properly. ⁣
⁣
But instead of beating myself up about it I’ve been looking at the positives... more free time to soak up the sunshine, spend time with my wonderful pals and focus more of my energy on PT revision. Every cloud! ⁣
⁣
Can’t wait to start moving again next week and working towards my next challenge, the Manchester half marathon. ⁣
Hope you’re all enjoying the sun and long weekend x
