Did you know with @strava you can plan out routes and even use them later? Being new to an area this was helpful because with my new training plan I have been trying to plan out routes for my runs, especially long runs.
You don’t even need to be perfect when tracing your route (as seen in the video) and then you can keep the routes public or private. You can also share them. You can click the “use route,” button to help direct you along the route in case you forget.
Just one of the many features that Strava offers! #stravarun#bibchat#bibravepro@bibrave
👟👟 5,01km - 38'17 - 7'38 🏃♀️🏃♀️ Objectif séance : monter de 0,5km/h tous les 500m après l échauffement de 10 min environ.
J ai gardé le 1% d inclinaison qui rend un peu de sensations et j ai tenu bon autant que possible sur les paliers, c est un exercice sympa, qui décrasse bien par contre qu est ce qu il fait chaud en salle : je souffre ! Y a qu a voir l état du cardio 😂
Sinon je vous partage un article sur le sujet course sur tapis, pas inintéressant :
June 8th - Day 2 (Plan)
Day 2 is 37.6km putting me at 179 out of 1613.8km! Lots of temples!
-1. Taisanji (Large Mountain Temple)
The temple was founded about 1470 years ago, before the time of Kūkai, and was an important temple for practitioners of Shugendō. Legends say that Kūkai visited the temple to find it in disrepair and had to rebuild it.
6. Anrakuji (The Temple of Everlasting Joy)
Founded by Kōbō Daishi on the site where he brought forth curative hot springs in the valley of Anraku, one mile north of its present location. Legend states that Kōbō Daishi struck his staff into the ground and brought forth the hot spring.
7. Jūrakuji (The Temple of Ten Joys)
Kōbō Daishi carved the honzon of Amida Nyorai when he founded the temple in the 9th century in Jūraku Valley.
Kumadaniji (Bear Valley Temple)
8. Founded by Kōbō Daishi. While he was engaged in esoteric practices here, the Shintō kami of Kumano presented him with a tiny statue of Kannon Bosatsu. Kōbō Daishi placed this statue, along with another relic, in a large statue of Senju Kannon Bosatsu.
9. Hōrinji (The Dharma Wheel Temple)
Founded by Kōbō Daishi and its honzon is the only surviving example of a reclining Buddha (Nehanzō) on the Shikoku pilgrimage.
10. Kirihataji (Cut Cloth Temple)
Kōbō Daishi founded the temple here in honor of a girl he met while performing religious activities at a hut on the mountain. Legend states that during the seven days that he engaged in religious practices, the girl supplied all his needs and spent the rest of her time patiently weaving cloth.

I’ve been quiet over the last couple of days, to be honest it’s been shit 💩. Went to docs who said I was obese, needed to loose 15kg and that my blood pressure was too high. Suffered with a migraine attack on Tuesday afternoon, which bailed me out until 7am yesterday. Ended up having ECG and blood test done yesterday and had to wear a 24 hour blood pressure machine which now thank fook I’ve got rid of. Running is my therapy, this year didn’t start well and to be honest despite all my happy smiley running photos life outside of my running hasn’t been plain sailing, but who’s life is perfect hey? This morning I went out and did what I do best, run 🏃♀️ and how beautiful it was, I’m blessed to live in such a beautiful area. So, obese or not Dr G I can still run so bollocks to your generalised comments surrounding BMI (which also sucks) 🖕🏻 x
Everyday is a school day 👨🏻🏫
Today I learnt that running the morning after donating blood is NOT The best idea. 🤦🏼♀️ 🙃
From two miles on, I was stopping and starting, feeling exhausted and lethargic. 😓
Plan - 10mi
Managed - 6.6mi ☠️
From experience I would strongly suggest giving it at least 24hrs before even trying a super easy run! 🤓 #stayhydrated
#throwbackthursday to all the fun at the Dulux London Revolution Ultra with just a few little kilometres to go.
P.s I know I look extra super grumpy here but I’m actually loving life with a mouthful of skittles from the very final pitstop (orange and green are my fave - no purple ones pretty please 🌈)

Once you really get to experience all the benefits of running, it’s very unlikely that you will ever stop doing it, but you just keep doing it over and over again 🏃 Sunday 19-05.19 (26k. accomplished with my new personal best) 😍

The question is, what won't we experience 🙂...
Post Marathon Blues 🎵
It’s been over two weeks since the marathon and last week the blues finally set it in. I rode a complete high for the first week and I don’t think I took that smile off my face. Seven straight days of no running felt amazing after how sore my body was. Mentally- I had prepared for that week. 🛏
The second week was much different and I didn’t see it coming. I wanted to run again but the runs felt like they were without purpose. I went to a work out and was depressed because I couldn’t be out there flying around with the group like normal. I absolutely love going to the workouts and hate missing them. I love hitting goals, whether it may be within the workout itself, setting weekly goal mileage to hit or some other type of goal and to be out there with out one to hit after months of them, just felt weird. Some asked if I was doing alright because I just seemed so distant and not like myself. 🤷♂️
There were other factors as well last week, but I was really struggling ever since the runners high wore off. As much as I love seeing others crush their goals, workouts and races, I just had to get away from the square life and seeing as it is Mental Health month, I thought it was a great time to get away and focus on repairing my mind. 📱
I used this past long weekend as a reset. I got to enjoy a ton of other activities that I didn’t have time for during the marathon build. I also ran up to my old highschool and ran a few laps of the track, which was absolutely gratifying. I think I ran around it more times in one day than I did in my whole highschool career. If you told highschool me that in 10 years I was going to be depressed two weeks after finishing a marathon, he wouldn’t have believed you. It reminded me that the once impossible was now possible and that I can continue to add new chapters to this story. 🏃
I didn’t think the post marathon blues were real but they truly are. I hope to plan for them better the next time I run a marathon by bracing myself better for the second week by making a game plan, treating myself better, and finding a new short term focus. What is your favourite way of beating the post marathon blues?
Super missed doing a race last weekend - I love all things about a race - the journey down, all the excited runners of every ability putting their foot on the same start line, a new route with all the adventure and an extra shiny medal + snack (always). I’ve signed up to another Maverick this Saturday in the beautiful Chiltern Hills - the short course only 😉
Super excited for an extra extra steady run (taper taper taper), all the adventure, some beautiful views and a snack or two - I hear there is watermelon 🍉
My last (and first) Maverick was not my fave (extra extra hard and too much pressure) so I’m ready to tackle my next Maverick with 0 of that pesky pressure and just all the fun!

It’s that time of year where my littlest love is now out of school, and my older one will be in a month, so fitting everything in gets a bit more challenging. “Save the excuses. It’s not about having the time, it’s about making the time. If it’s important to you, then you will make time.” Well, running and fitness are VERY important to me and to my sanity, so you better believe I make the time. 5 early morning miles on the treadmill before the kids got up, then 2 classes after I dropped Finn off at school (thank goodness for child care - and Rhys loves it!) ✅. No matter what is going on in life, it’s the one thing I have for me where I can just be and let it all go. Happy Wednesday, friends! ☺️👊 #runner#running#fitness#training#maketime#noexcuses#grit#core

Getting up high in the Peak District. My favourite thing about running is that you can make it into whatever you want.
It doesn’t always have to be about times and pace; scrambling over rocks, enjoying the views, experiencing new locations, running with others. Time to enjoy what we love doing best. Time to play.
Oh que ça fait du bien !
Un vieux problème entre mon corps et ma tête
L'inactivité me provoque tout de suite un mal être
. je pense tout de suite avoir pris 10kilos je ressort les affaires ample pour dissimuler les poignées d'amour 🙄
Mais bon séance de reprise effectué j'ai retrouvé ma taille de guêpe 😂
Faites du sport rien de mieux pour le moral
Bonne soirée à tous 🤗 #devenezlimpossible #runramadan #spiderinstinct#brooksrunning #teamStimium#SIExpert#instarunners

🔥Si le mot RP pouvait être utilisé pour un trail de distance non normalisée, JE DIRAIS RP🔥
Je reviendrai en video très rapidement sur ce que je pense de ce trail. Mais c'est globalement une très bonne expérience, que je vous recommande. En particulier pour une seconde édition, ou l'organisation est déjà plutôt très bien rodée. J'utilise "plutôt" car j'ai tout de mêmes des toutes petites choses à reprocher. Les paysages également sont très agréable, mais rien de mieux que la vidéo pour vous les montrer.
Une pensée pour Carole qui n'a pas pu être présente, et une course sans Carole, gérée seul, c'est très rare et inhabituel pour moi.
