Every part of me wanted to sack my run this evening and get the tube home from work after a hectic day in the office 🤯 but it’s the best way to let off steam and there’s only 5 weeks to go till the big day!✨ And I may have ordered a pizza because it’s just been one of those days... 🤭 #marathontraining#londonmarathon#garmin#runner#runnersofinstagram
Raise Your Hips. •
Running has made me hyper aware of my body, its rhythms, strengths, and imbalances. Just this morning, my trainer @jackococo worked with me on single leg dead lifts to help balance things out. Simple hip raises, a favorite of barre workouts everywhere, are one of my favorite moves to strengthen my core and lengthen out my glutes, quads, and IT band. It also does wonders for my tricky piriformis muscle. •

Hoy vengo a probar algo nuevo, algo que va a hacer que cambie mi forma de entrenar y competir. Hoy, 20 de marzo he hecho mi segundo entrenamiento de 7'3km (el primero fue el domingo 18) tras dos meses y medio de parón por una tendinitis rotuliana que no conseguía acabar de curarse. Hoy, me he quedado mirando mi nuevo reloj de @polarspain, el modelo #m430 y he pensado que por qué no orientaba esto hacia un Instagram más deportivo, y así lo haré.
He corrido 7'3km a un ritmo medio de 4:47, un ritmo bajo aunque acorde a lo que necesito que es empezar de cero. Esos 7km, han sido en progresión, empezando en 5:13 y acabando el último km a 4:27. A pesar del parón por la lesión no he perdido forma física pues las pulsaciones se aceleran y frenan de forma concorde a lo referente a un atleta experimentado. He conseguido mantener 20 minutos una velocidad situada en el nivel 3 sobre 5 de mi clase de ejercicio. Volvemos a las calles, a los 10k y en concreto a los 7km del sábado en mi pueblo, en Villarrobledo. Muy buenas sensaciones con un claro objetivo, y son esos 43 min en el 10k de Albacete.
Si pensáis que es interesante y de verdad os gusta, me lo podéis hacer llegar sin ningún problema. Muchísimas gracias si has llegado hasta aquí. Esto sólo acaba de empezar. 😏🤘 . #run#runislife#run4life#running#runyoncanyon#runnersofinstagram#correr#corre#corredores#carreras#races#fit#fitness#fitnessmotivation#motivación#motivationalquotes#quotes#albacete#entrenamiento#atletismo#10k#10kenruta#10km
Cool to get a copy of my lap times from Barry 40 mile track race in the post.
I definitely hit the wall not far after 30 miles and dropped off a bit pace wise but to say I didn't run with a watch I'm really pleased with how steady my lap times were overall just by running to effort level.
The legs have recovered and felt good after a couple of days and I can't recommend the race highly enough if you fancy the idea of a track ultra (or marathon) next year.
It was pouring down rain when I finished my lunch run so no cute post-run pic for me, I guess this will have to do 🤓 Headed back to the office looking like a drowned rat 🐭
2 runs today! 4 miles at 4:30a with my running BFF and 5 solo miles during lunch with some speed work 🙌🏻 Plus, a killer Upper Body workout! Happy Tuesday and Happy 1st Day of Spring friends!! 🌸
10 treadmill miles tonight for the sole purpose of just getting some miles in. •
This week will be my heaviest week this cycle. It’s definitely a personal preference with regards to how many miles you feel are good for YOU during marathon training. •
I did the Run Less, Run Faster program for one of my marathons and it really wasn’t enough mileage for me. I’ve seen a lot of you all on Hanson’s method- which is heavy mileage, but you don’t exceed 16 miles in your long run. You all know I like my long runs 😂! So, I’ve adapted by creating a plan that works for me.
I don’t think there’s a wrong way or a right way for everyone. It’s definitely finding the right balance that works for YOU 😃!
This will be my 9th marathon and I’m still trying to figure out how to train best for me. Also, as I get older my body reacts differently than it used to! I definitely need my Sunday rest days to recover!
Deep thoughts by Amber: I think I love the marathon because it’s such a puzzle both mentality and physically. I like to figure things out 🤔. Not sure what this says about me, but it’s true!
Today’s workout was 2 mile w/u, then 5x2k at MP and getting faster with each one down to HMP with 400m recovery between, c/d to 10.5 miles.🏃🏻♀️Had to take it to the treadmill🙄this morning.📷 is from a few days ago when the weather was less frightful!
