It has been a really really long time since I had a good speedwork session. I’m not entirely sure if it was a good idea ahead of a planned slow, long run tomorrow. But, at the moment, I’m blissful and don’t care. I’ll worry about that tomorrow. Seeing the treadmill hit a 7:30 mile/min pace for 200m intervals was extremely fun and satisfying. No pain anywhere, which is absolutely amazing. I fully credit all the other non-running stuff I’ve been doing for my full recovery. That marathon finish line on 13 January is looking more and more probable.

Still too unhealthy for outdoor running.
The MBRC Turkey Relay will still be on Wednesday night 11/21. The run will be at the Hidden Lakes Park track at 6pm. You will be on a relay team and be responsible for carrying a 12lb. frozen turkey in a baby carrier for a ¼ mile lap and then slamming your favorite 12 oz. carbonated beverage. We will head back to our house for pizza and drinks after. Please RSVP by Tuesday 11/20 so we can plan the relay teams and the pizza order. Also, remember to bring a headlamp and your favorite 12 oz. carbonated beverage. We will meet at Hidden Lakes park (Morello Ave. at Chilpancingo Pkwy.) lot near the sand volleyball courts at 5:45pm to prep for the big race! #mymartinez#thisismartinez#martinezbeaversrunclub#theBeavs#mbrcturkeyrelay#instarunners#runnerscommunity#run#running
Snowy Saturday run! Still in recovery mode from the marathon last week but my body feels better when it's moving 🏃♀️ But I am taking it easy and will be taking advantage of a slower pace for awhile...at least for my long runs 😉
Queenstown Marathon 2018
3 marathons in 11 weeks was always going to be a tough ask ... with a mix of trail & road this course was truly stunning but definitely challenging ... I had a total ball out there taking in the lakes, mountains & all round breath taking scenery
on the bus trip to the start line I sat next to a kiwi girl with a broken arm ~ yes she was running ~ they breed them tough over here ... while waiting in the line up for the toilets she introduced me to her friend Hannah ... I was wearing my Kangaroo Island Marathon cap & she told me she had run it last year ~ we chatted ... later I found out that Hannah had won KI marathon last year and also won Queenstown Marathon yesterday 😳
in the starting shoot I chatted with @nicbunyonrma ~ the last time we saw each other was when I sidled up next to her at the 19km mark of Gold Coast Half Marathon 2015 ~ we crossed the finish line together that day for very decent 1:47 half’s
for me the changing surfaces were a real challenge on my feet ... foot cramping kicked in around 16km’s ... so my walk|jog strategy was thrown out for a new survival strategy ... the 20km mark I found a green t-shirt that was in a similar boat to me ~ except he had calf cramping ... every time he walked I passed him on my jog & every time I walked he passed me on his jog ... I encouraged him every time I passed & he told me to keep going as I was his pacer every time he passed ... we did this cat & mouse routine up to 38km’s ... I didn’t see him after that but waited at the finish line to see him come in 5 minutes behind me ... we hugged & thanked each other ... Tim from Hamilton you are a legend 🙌🏼 ... I finished 3 seconds faster than Melbourne ~ my fastest marathon for 2018 ...
waiting for the ferry I was approached by @gregbisset a fellow South African Aussie ... he ran the half after running New York a couple of weeks ago 👌🏼 ... what a fabulous running friendships Instagram has given me that I can be anywhere on earth & bump into like minded people that would normally have walked straight by
my weary legs will be resting for the remainder of 2018 ... but boy it’s been a big fabulous year ✔️
Samstag / Zeit mal die Schuhe 👞 auszuführen 🙈 Ja die Boten sind meine, Grün und ich liebe Sie mit mein HappySocks - du hast doch n Knall 💥 Calle, na und ich steh dazu. So, wo gehts hin Heut Abend in Berlin, The Pearl oder doch ins Grill Royal? Berliner unter meinen Freunden, helft mit...
Ansonsten war mein Tag mit dem Rennrad sehr ernüchternd. War an dem Punkt der Aufgabe, abbiegen und wieder Heim ins Bett. Kalt, Schwach und nicht Gut drauf - trotz des sehr guten Wetters, zwar kalt aber dafür Sonne satt. Naja am Ende, dank Teambegleitung durchgezogen - warme Dusche und alles GUT! ✌️
Sobre a prova de hoje... eu treinei, me preparei e mesmo assim esta com um pouco de medo, a corrida tem dessas coisas, mexe com seus sentimentos, é uma mistura louca de ansiedade, medo, felicidade... é emoção a flor da pele do inicio ao fim. Não da pra descrever o que é correr, só quem corre sabe! .
Hoje tive uma grande conquista. Conquista essa que me marcou e que me mostrou que mesmo cheia de medos eu posso e consigo! .
CORRER FOI A MELHOR ESCOLHA QUE EU FIZ!

Tempo runs are my weakness so it felt great to kill that one! 👍🏻
Happy blinkin #parkrunuk day! 😍Absolutely loved this mornings run at Parc Bryn Bach, non stop chatting, and actually a decent run. A huge confidence booster since returning from the stress fracture 🙌🏼
Now enjoying the gorgeous weather and scenery cheering on at @beaconsultramarathon I was so looking forward to this prior to injury, but stood watching everyone smashing it is just as awesome. Next year! 👏 .
Happy Saturday you lovely lot ❤️
