Bridget C @runningmum

My youngest baby (3 boys total) is now a year old and the decision to get myself fit and healthy is one of the best I have ever made! I am enjoying and becoming addicted to the running I took up in Nov '12 and ran my first half marathon on Feb 17th '13, which I loved!! The motivation, inspiration and accountability I find on here has changed my life and my kids and Hubby are following suit. Love TS :)

Bridget C "All Together Now" (Beatles challenge to get it "all together" in goal Challenge

Contributorgold Bridget C Week 7 battled tunny bug against running but at least heading into taper. Did a bit of speed work but trouble with the shins and knee was bit niggly on the long run around 9km mark but was bearable. Easter choc got the better of food goals but kept up hydration again (habit now) and am really glad to be on the real taper now, just keeping to 10-12km and under. Bit tired of running to strict schedule and looking forward to race day and resting :D

Bridget C "All Together Now" (Beatles challenge to get it "all together" in goal Challenge

Contributorgold Bridget C Week 6 and the myotherapy seems to have worked wonders!!! Managed a few good runs and then attempted the 35km in the rain on my own eeek! First 17km went amazing, was thinking I had this marathon thing in the bag LOL then got a little tired but doing good until 27km when knee pain pulled me up and I considered cutting the run short. After a stern talking to myself I continued but the last 9km took 1hr20min with pain, walk breaks and a sit down to rub feet and knees! However, knee pain normally sets in a 3km and is agonising from 10km so huge improvements. Also learned this week to invest in Vaseline and have kept up hydration goals well.

Haha we just couldn't believe it! Kind of lucky we started before the storm hit otherwise I just would have stayed at home so at least we got it done :) Stopped raining about 9km, was like a flash flood!

Bridget C Go Running in the Rain Challenge

Contributorgold Bridget C OMG was raining/drizzling when we left but within 2kms we were in the eye of a storm!!! We couldn't lift our heads up to see and the flooding ended up leaving us only running down the median line of the road as the footpaths and gutters flooded completely. So drenched, shoes and clothes squishy and heavy I actually changed clothes at a toilet stop @ 11km before completing the next 8km! Hope I never experience that again!!
