Made it on Thai TV ✔️
Perhaps the funniest thing is they cut the entire interview just to the bit where I say I feel amazing and it is a BIG TROPHY 🏆🤣 to be fair I had to strap it to my scooter afterwards... 🛵
This has been my favourite race so far... Not only did I sign up 2 days before, making it a very spontaneous decision, I ended up on Thai TV and winning overall female. We ran with giraffes through the zoo and up Doi Suthep mountain back around the university and around the paths I train on. It was so well organised and I really enjoyed myself 😁
SURGES! We do them, and we do lots of them. We like to think of surges as “extended strides” of 30-45 seconds at paces ranging from 10 minute race effort to 90 minute race effort. Depending on how fast you run them, they can target a number of different physiological adaptions, but the main improvement we are after is EFFICIENCY over all paces.
Try this once or twice per week over the next few weeks and you’ll notice a difference in your running: 60 to 75 minutes easy with 8 X 30 second surges at 90 minute to 10 minute perceived race effort (depending on how you’re feeling that day) with 2 minute easy jogs in between each surge for recovery. Happy trails! #UpperLeftDT

Houston we have a problem. .
When I took my shoes off tonight after a 7km easy run my sock was full of blood. I didn’t notice anything too bad on the run, just a teeny tiny niggle.
My feet are gnarly. Bruised and saw from running. Recovering from blisters and generally ugly. But as someone said to me recently ‘at least you keep your nails painted’ 🤣
I have to keep those nails short. I mean really short. Every 2 weeks I get them cut. Small margins pay huge dividends with my feet.
However, something isn’t right. .
Do you experience bleeds when running? Are your feet battered from work outs?
So proud of my client Nancy who rocked the Air Force Half Marathon in Ohio over the weekend. Despite the crazy heat and humidity, she finished in the top 25 of her age group. Nice work, Nancy! And speaking of work, she’s standing in front of the drone her company built. So cool! #runswithsole#usafhalfmarathon#medalmonday#adaylate

Trote dieciochero. Pese a la lluvia, salieron 90’ a ritmo conversado.
I've skipped everyday for so many years now. I incorporate it into HIIT workouts simply do non stop for 30 minutes. It has drsmstically helped with endurance training and coordination. I take my rope everywhere: it's so convenient for when you can't get out and run 🤩
