Running given me many things, but the greatest gift has been people that it’s brought into my life ❤️.
I helgen skal jeg løpe Sentrumsløpet for aller første gang. Jeg har aldri løpt denne distansen i konkurransesammenheng før, og jeg kjenner at nervene begynner å komme snikende. Jeg liker best å løpe rolige og lange turer. Å løpe 10 km over terskel hele veien med disse korte beina😂, er ikke min styrke i det hele tatt! Det er helt utenfor min komfortsone, men den største gleden er at jeg endelig skal møte min ASISC-familie og tilbringe en hel helg sammen med dem. Det blir en magisk helg og jeg gleder meg som en liten unge🤩😍❤️! [ad]
Qualcuno corre per vincere.
Altri per sfidare se stessi.
Io corro perchè mi rende felice e per ricevere un semplice abbraccio al mio arrivo.
Tu perchè corri? @run_to_feel_better .
Someone runs to win.
Others to challenge themselves.
I run because it makes me happy and to receive a simple hug after #finishline .
Why are you running?
Don’t be surprised how quickly the universe will move with you once you have decided. (unknown)
So what’s next?
1️⃣Brussels 20k in May
2️⃣London 10k in June
3️⃣How did I miss the dam tot dam?😭😭😭😭😭
4️⃣Amsterdam 42.6 in October 💯 see you there @thimo.runner!!!
5️⃣Paris Marathon 2020 😁
Combined with all the great stuff on my plate professionally, 2019 is going to be A M A Z I N G 💥💥 #furtherfasterstronger#headupwingsout#runfast#marathontraining

Heute wieder ganz locker 8km bei 5:55 gelaufen. Nachdem im Moment keine Läufe anstehen, nehme ich das Training auch mal lockerer.
In the spirit of London Marathon week, here's a throwback to 14 years ago .... London Marathon in 2005 was my most scariest yet. I was representing a club again (Trentham) and I was there on the start line on my own, with not only the best women marathon runners in the country, but also in the world, including the amazing Paula Radcliffe - I was star struck!
Of course, as soon as the gun goes, the elite go off so fast that you only see the tops of their heads bobbing off into the distance, which left me to run my own race. And what another amazing day it was! I certainly didn't go out thinking I could run as fast as I did - sub 3 was my ultimate goal, but I would have been happy with another PB - and yet I achieved both. I ran the race a mile at a time - focused purely on getting to the next mile within a certain time - and once again, as I ran down Bird Cage Walk and turned in to The Mall, I really couldn't believe it when I saw the clock saying 2 hours 53 minutes and some seconds. I remember looking at the results afterwards and thinking, "Huh??!!!" A 15 minute personal best and 3 hours smashed.
Knowing when to listen to your body...one of the biggest struggles of many runners suffering from fatigue.
I swore to myself when I started running again that I wouldn’t ignore the warning signs. Today I woke up shattered. The thought of running was horrific. I had to take a morning nap to recover. Normally I would have just ploughed on and I may have felt better, I may have felt worse, I may have gotten injured...Who knows! This time though I don’t want to take any risks.
Tuesday was a big session and a double day. Yesterday I did weights and more running. My body clearly isn’t ready for that battering so I gave it what it needed - REST!
One day off will not have any impact on my progress. If anything it will probably help me, so I’m not beating myself up about it at all. In fact I’m giving myself a pat on the back for being sensible. Win! 💪🏻
Throwback to last saturday @2oceansmarathon 56k/35miles Capetown 🇿🇦
The first 16km are a little boring running on a straight street towards the Indian Ocean to Muizenberg. Once there its a nice view and the sun came up putting everything in a glow. I got caught in a heavy downpour at KM 18 but it was a warm morning. Ran along the indian ocean waterfront until KM21. KM26 marked the start of a nasty slow incline of 300m/900ft for 8km. Some amazing views during the ascent onto Fishhoek, Noordhoek (Beach) and the Atlantic Ocean, and on top of the hill on Ou Kaapse Weg into the valleys. Steep descent on the other side. My quads were screaming at me but it felt good to just run with the flow after that slow uphill. Breathtaking views again to Indian Ocean and Capetown. KM42 approaching the southeast side of the Tablemountain. I could now feel my empty energy level but was able to maintain a stable pace. Took a caffein energy gel and it worked. It gave me a nice push that i needed. Once at KM 48 with only 8 to go, it almost is only downhill from there and my fastest km during the whole run was KM53 with 4:15min. I felt strong and powerful. Pushing it all the way to my limits, with Boston still in my system. At KM55 i could already here the finishline party. I entered the Capetown University Rugby Field and people on both sides were going crazy. I could now see the finishline. I hugged my family who was waiting for me for hours and crossed the finish at 5:03:40. I had a little cry and thanked the universe for holding it all in place and letting me run Berlin Half, Boston and Two Oceans without injury 🏅
I was very upset when they announced a late course change on Friday, leaving out Chapmans Peak and Hout Bay. But the alternative route did not dissapoint. Love the 50th anniversary medal (see previous post). Will be back next year to finally run on Chapmans Peak 😇
Time to rest now before going into the next preparation cycle leading to @maratonadoriooficial RIO DE JANEIRO Marathon in nine weeks 💪🏼
