I am a runner! I absolutely love it. It's been intense, exciting, relaxing, healing and sometimes painful - an incredible journey - one I want to continue for as long as I can....

There was a time I did not think twice about doing a long run. No matter the distance or pace my attitude was bring it on. Lately I find myself obsessing over the long run. Will I complete that distance, can I hold that pace for that long, drinks or gels, are among the myriad questions that i ask myself. Take today's run for example. I've been thinking about it all week. The plan called for 170 minutes run - the first 90 minutes @ 10 min/mile and the last 80 minutes @ 9min/miles. Tough one. And the questions have been flying thick and thin through my mind. Amazingly though it never crossed my mind to forgo the run. So 5:00am I'm on the road taking tentative steps in what would turn out to be a great run for me. I ran it a tad faster than planned - did the first 90 minutes@ about 9:51 and the last 80 minutes @ about 8:47. I was able to hold the pace. Legs felt strong; I just knuckled down and got on with it. The strategy for taking in gels and drinking (Lucozade sports drink) on the run went well. I had a gel after the first hour and one every 45 minutes thereafter. I drank to thirst. There was one thing though that really got me going. After the first few miles a thought dropped into my mind that changed my attitude and got me going. The thought: "You will never know what you can or cannot do until you try!"

Well done! I never use gels or sports drinks, only water.

would you be interested in joining Boys vs. Girls: Who will reach the Moon first?? It's set up on autolog, so once you join your team, not much else to do but run and walk :))

Road or Trail 4:30am. I'm awake. Normally the next thing would be to get into my gear and hit the road for my run. Not today. And that is because I am conflicted. Should I get out there now and run on road or should I wait for daybreak and then go out to the trails. It's been a long time since I went out to the trails and truthfully it's been because I couldn't stand the thought of wading through mud, puddles and all. And let's not forget the hills. I didn't feel like tackling them. And lately it's been raining quite a lot. Mmmmm.... So what is it going to be - road (comfort zone) or trail (urghhhh...) and I can hear it raining outside. I've got free time this morning so I'm dawdling. In the end the trail wins so I take myself out to Epping Forest for a slow easy run in the rain wading through puddles, stamping through mud, weaving through wet vegetation, dashing up hills ( I must be fitter than I thought!) And the irony? I loved every minute!

Speed work - 10 minutes warm up, 4 x 8 minutes @7:54, 7:53, 7:49, and 7:55 with 2 minutes 30 seconds recovery jogs, 10 minutes cool down. Yes! I nailed this one. Tough session but I didn't feel like I'm going to pass out or something. This was a good run!

Intervals in the snow.... 10 mins warmup, 8 x 2 mins@7:16, 7:29, 7:46, 7:48, 7:50, 7:42, 7:38, 7:48 with 90 secs recovery jogs, 10 mins cool down. The first two were way too fast! Had to slow it down a bit if I was going to finish all 8 repeats. It felt great - tough but great. I think I was enjoying the falling snow too much. A good run this morning.

Woohoo! I did it!! Phew! When I woke up this morning I wasn't feeling this run and top of that it was cold outside. The plan called for a 12-mile long run: first 6 miles easy, the next six miles@ marathon pace. Tough one but mission accomplished!
