Death by 40 degrees! ☀️🔥🙈🙉
First time I’ve run in the 40s!!! What were we even thinking @sarah_roly
5km @ 5:39 pace.
These are the runs that make us tougher 💪
Great training for #gcam18
The first 2-3km were ok, but not gonna lie the last 2km were tough! I took water bottles and the my felt like boiling water! (Tried ice cubes in them but that was useless after 200m).
70-80% of the course was not in shade and in the heat of the sun ☀️
But we survived 🤪
Throwing it back to track, where @dash_teamlondon, a team of professional athletes, reacquainted me with the 400m loop, for what was probably the first time since school! .
I've never considered myself much of a sprinter - my little legs just don't fire fast enough (the proof is in the picture 🙈) but I recognise there are no shortcuts to becoming a good runner. Like hills 🙄 speed is just part of the equation. .
So thanks for teaching us the tricks of the track and helping us better prep for those long runs. I'll happily join you at Ravenscourt Park when I've shifted this damn cough, and look forward to being #fasterforit in this years marathon 🤞🏽Anyone care to join me?!

Typical Thursday morning for me at @function360physiotherapy. Harvey focused on opening up my thoracic spine before we did about a million glute exercises. I will definitely be feeling it today and probably tomorrow too.
On Tuesday 13 February, join me and the team at #function360 for an evening #ValentinesDay run. Social 5k for all abilities and relationship statuses. More info coming soon!
If you have race or strength goals, definitely get in touch with the team. They can sort you out. 15% off when you use #F360MM15.
Good morning. For some reason I thought that ducks on a muddy riverbank look better, more entertaining and inspirational than a selfie by night with a headlamp. So this is a picture from last week.
This morning g was a 6am half asleep half awake #morningrun . Glad I did it . Some days it feels like this is about the only sensible thing I do. Don't mind my small talk. Good day.

Two of America’s finest road runners on the circuit today shattered PR’s to run themselves into the record books. Bernard Lagat, a double world champion, was on pace to beat Gebrselassie’s record time of 1:01:09 at the 10km split, but found himself slowing in the second half to a 1:02:00 finishing time. Despite missing the mark, he still bettered Meb Keflezighi’s U.S. masters record by 29 seconds.
Chelanga stayed with the lead pack for all but the last 2 miles of the race. He dipped under his former personal best by 27 seconds to place 6th overall in 60:37. The time puts him behind Dathan Ritzenhein’s 60-flat and ahead of Diego Estrada’s 60:51. Haron Lagat, who accompanied him for much of the race, clocked 61:01 in his debut to put himself 8th on the U.S. list.
