Day 16 of #redjanuary was slightly different - a 1.8 mile run home from the climbing wall. It was so icy! Had to be careful not to go arse over tit 😂
My next challenge is a climbathon, where I'll be trying to scale 3000m (the height of the national 3 peaks) on a climbing wall with 5 other people. It's going to be tough - that's 275 climbs of the highest wall in Harrogate in just 1 day! We have just over a month to get some serious training in 💪💪
Five awful but equally lovely miles with Rach this evening. At one point we were being attacked by the weather and it took me at least an hour to warm up after I got home 🙈 Very proud of us for getting out there despite neither of us feeling 100%. As always, it was so worth it 💪🏼💖
So excited! A couple of flat whites on board and not long till a hardcore #cheltenhamharriers training session!!
The evening will prob pan out as follows:
1. Group warm up jog (2 miles) with nervous chat about how hard the session will be, how wet, cold and dark it is and how tired our leg are ( #excusesexcuses)
2. 10k worth of intervals on the track with our coach yelling at us and making us work damn hard (see below for session details)
3. Group warm down jog with endorphin fuelled chat about how hard the session was and how tired our legs are! But also how much WE LOVE IT!!!!
4. Run home, eat loads, have a bath then ask for a leg massage from Rach (and prob be told to f-off! We can but hope!)
12 miles ish with main set including 8x75secs at 10k pace [45secs recovery], 3x5.20mins at tempo pace [100secs], 4x75secs at 10k pace [45secs]
3 easy miles with @richhjobling this evening to mark the start of a more positive and hopefully more productive week. A few throwback photos tonight in memory of our beautiful kitten Lexie who sadly died on Thursday. She was so very precious and I’ll miss her moody little face forever 💕
#Redjanuary Day 15. Tonight was SO WINDY!! It was such a difficult run, I couldn't catch my breath at all because of the weather so I ended up having a stitch most of the way round. Still, another day done!
A gloomy run today. Upping my distance a tiny bit to ease gently back into running. You can definitely tell I’m out of practice and took a break. Nothing that can’t be fixed though. 😀 #running#ukrunning#runhappy#runnergirl

I patiently watched the rain out of the window this lunchtime after getting kitted out in my running gear. Finally it stopped and I made a dash for it. It was a good choice and a good run 😀 Hoping I can push myself out for another run this week. Kinda lost my running mojo a little with the weather being so crappy. #running#ukrunning
