After a lot of waiting to finalise the numbers I am very pleased to say that we raised an incredible £6,686 for @lullabytrust in memory of Jessie 🌹 ...
Thank you to everyone who donated and supported me on this incredible journey, I’m so proud of what we’ve achieved and knowing that we were raising money for such an important cause kept me moving on that blistering day! 🏃🏻‍♀️
...
James & I will always support the work of The Lullaby Trust and our next challenge will be the @ridelondon 100 mile ride next year which we will complete together 🚴🏻‍♂️🚴🏻‍♀️
...
So here’s to new adventures and continuing Jessica’s legacy 👼🏼

Week 6 Marathon training 💪.
.
This week started with a 3 miler on Tuesday that didn’t get on IG because a:I was just too tired and CBA and b: was so fast @mjlees666 thought my Garmin was broken 🤣.
.
So second run of the week today is ‘Snickers test’ which is a 14 miler segment on Strava... it’s called ‘Snickers’ because it’s my marathon test route and back in ye olden times ‘Snickers’ used to be called ‘marathon’..... get it 🤣🤦‍♀️.
.
So how was it??? BOOM! This old lady smashed it 💪💪14.56 miles @ 8:01 pace!! Which is my goal Marathon pace 😬😬.
.
It even had a big hill chucked in to make the hill at mile 18 of @bournemouthmarathonfestival seem insignificant 👌.
.
And I got a 👑 on Strava 🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️so feeling super happy!
.
I did have my @mjlees666 pacing me so I didn’t look at my pace the whole time...sometimes ignorance is bliss 🙏.
.
Only shouted at him once when he broke the golden rule of ‘don’t speak to me’ on the final mile 🤣👍#couplegoals .
.
Just a wee 21miler left to do this week 😅.

Not necessarily a #transformationtuesday but here’s me as Mr Tunnicliffe in Call the Midwife, and I remember feeling so self conscious of having to wear a vest as I knew I wasn’t in my greatest shape (it was winter), but although I’m far from where I want to be, I’m working towards it and implementing changes to both my diet and mindset. PS I had McDonald’s for dinner last night! 😂

Week 5 Marathon training done 💪34 miles 👏🏻👍
.
Today’s run was a 13miler ran to base heart rate ❤️. I was going to do an easy tarmac run but @mjlees666 had other ideas so I followed him...(did as I was told 🙄)
.
13 mile route including hills, mud, farms, sheep, more hills, golf course, cattle grids...it was a fab route, I had no idea where I was for the last bit and was very surprised we popped out in Braunton when I was convinced we were heading to Ilfracombe 😂🤦‍♀️#hopelesssenseofdirection.
.
And yes we ran in matching trainers 👫he’s always copying me 😉.

🇫🇷🇫🇷 3.5 miles in the rain, in France with my wife. She’s an absolute legend, and helps me stay motivated as I definitely wasn’t up for running today in this weather. 
We’re running ‘The Big Half’ together next March so it’s even more of an excuse to train together! My 🌍 🏃🏻‍♀️ 🏃🏻‍♂️

@charlottepurdue (who as a non funded UK athlete gets some support from us/our clients) is racing in the European championship marathon on Sunday in Berlin. Since being injured before #vlm2018 she has trained well and is in good shape. Here about her last trip to altitude, including a 130 Mile week, at St.Moritz in her own words in her blog on our website (link in bio). .

Bring home some bling please Charlotte......

Today’s run was 13.1 miles at base heart rate 👌.
.
Boom!!!!! So happy with that! 🤸‍♂️With a drop in temperature and a bit of a breeze it was so much easier to run 👍
.
More scientific proof that I run better when it’s cooler 👩‍🔬, these scientific experiments are costing a fortune 😂.
.
Just imagine if I ran a marathon and it wasn’t boiling hot 🤔maybe if I enter under a fake name the weather gods might be fooled!!!.
.
Refuelling with Nobbly Bobby as the boyfriend has abandoned me and gone out for lunch with his mate leaving me to fend for myself 😱good job I have a freezer full 🐷.

Some not so great horsey news for me today, I didn’t make the Senior Home International team, so here’s my pick me up... 2018 I turned 40.... 🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾
🐴 my little cheap as chips pony Alf and I have qualified for and come 6th at the Petplan Area Festivals in our first full year at Novice level, qualifying for the finals... 🐴 we have achieved some of our highest ever scores and have had loads of fun jumping and hacking out... 🐴 I got my new horse Bravo in January and in just a few months out competing we have nearly completed a qualification for the Winter Regionals (1 point to go!), have qualified for the Petplan Area Festivals and are about to move up to Novice level only a few months into our first season and we were 5th overall at the Northern Region Show
🐴 plus we have very nearly touched the magic 70% that I thought was unachievable for little old me... 🐴we have hacked and jumped and he is teaching Ian to ride... 🐴Fayo has lots of new little friends who he loves coming to ride him now that Henry is too tall to do much with him... 🐴I am not from a horsey background and got my first horse in my 20’s, I have no ménage and I work full time... I do have some brilliant friends and family who support me!
🐴My good friend introduced me to the Academic Art of Riding which I am super excited about, and we have lots of fun riding saddle and bridleless! 🐴Oh and guess what... this happened today... £2621 raised for Phab Kids as while I was doing all this horsey stuff I ran a chuffing marathon! 
So I didn’t make the team this time but I don’t really need to, my team at home is perfect ❤️❤️❤️ And there’s always next year!  #dressage #bdnorthern #britishdressage #cantbringmedown  #goals #optimism #planning #riding #horses #londonmarathon #vlm2018

Doubletap 👊👊if you're running a marathon this year and be sure to follow @traineronthehill -  Running a marathon is a rollercoaster of emotions, electric highs to brutally tough lows.
.
But this point of the London marathon is always the highlight for me 🇬🇧 .
Tower Bridge you were amazing 😄

Week 5 of marathon training starts with an “easy” 8 ran to HR ❤️.
.
I LOVED the grey skies and look how happy my rats tails are blowing in the breeze 🤣Yes a BREEZE it was bliss ❤️.
.
Obviously marathon day will be a heatwave 🙄but I enjoyed every minute of not feeling like I was boiling to death 🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️🤸‍♂️.
.
I am also taking this run as scientific prof 👩‍⚕️that the heat is slowing me down...it’s not my old lady legs 👌.
.
Just a couple of half marathons to do this week...like you do 🤣🤸‍♂️👍.

I received my Boston Marathon results certificate today, it was the first time I looked at the following stats, for those 6 days between the 2018 Boston and London Marathons.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🇺🇸 Boston
⭐️Marathon PB
⭐️Overall finished top 39%
⭐️Overall gender placed top 29%
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🇬🇧 London
⭐️Overall finished top 12%
⭐️Overall gender placed top 18%
⭐️1st half: Passed 6498 runners & 8 passed me
⭐️2nd half: Passed 1032 runners & 365 passed me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After the marathon high had worn off, my thoughts were focused on not achieving my target times. It took a while to be kinder to myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However I had forgotten that the weather was shocking for both, I was injured and fatigued. And you shouldn’t really run 2 marathons so close! 🤦🏽‍♂️But going through these hardships revealed what actual
success is.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Success isn’t just measured in PB’s or the stats I shared.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Beyond the obvious how do you measure success in your running?

I'm no handy Andy 🛠️ buts it finally up on the wall! The second most proudest moment so far in 30 years, obviously Mason wins hands down!
But this was the hardest but yet most fun day I've ever had with @misszoegoo @gillhoskin and Mo....and I hope we can do it all over again together one day! 
Now for the next challenge training starts tomorrow for the @royalparkshalf in October so expect plenty of running posts but this next challenge is all for one man only my dad and @kidneycareuk #teamkidney #kidneycare #runnerschat #vlm2018 #londonmarathon #halfmarathontraining

Do you ever do a short run and wonder how on Earth you ever ran a marathon????.
.
It’s rest week so just 2 easy runs for me this week. A little 3 miler this morning...I was glad it was only 3 😅I couldn’t have run any further, I was done 🛌My brain is baffled how I ran an 18miler last week and the thought of running 26.2 seems impossible🤦‍♀️.
.
My body gets so used to rest week (every 4th week on my plan) it refuses to do more than the bare minimum, seems my brain is the same 😂. .
Time for some quality sofa time...gotta take this resting very seriously 👌😴

A little 3 miler this morning...I was glad it was only 3 😅I couldn’t have run any further, I was done 🛌My brain is baffled how I ran an 18miler last week and the thought of running 26.2 seems impossible🤦‍♀️. . My body gets so used to rest week (every 4th week on my plan) it refuses to do more than the bare minimum, seems my brain is the same 😂. . Time for some quality sofa time...gotta take this resting very seriously 👌😴 . #restweek  #giveyourlegsabreak  #sofatime  #salomon  #vlm2018  #timetoplay  #trailrunning  #loverunning  #runner  #northdevon  #lovewhereilive  #braunton  #marathontraining  #thisoldladyruns  #runnersofinstagram  #strava  #runner  #instarunners  #trailrunner  #lonelygoat  #runningsolo  #mountainhardwear  #nosweatoutdoors  #medal  #fitnotskinny  #amibraveenoughtodoanultra ?#londonmarathon2018  #woolacombemarathon2018  #northdevonmarathon2018 #bournemouthmarathon2018  #lundyislandrace2018

After #vlm2018 I had a #depression and #anxiety relapse, which surprised me to be honest. I only had physical symptoms this time, actually thought I was anaemic.  But no, it’s my 🧠 again! So now I’m trying to get over the initial hurdle to start training again for #venicemarathon in 13 weeks time. Due to the palpitations and dizziness I’ve been avoiding cardio, until now. Boy was this a hard run. Only 2ks and I took a break every half a k. So can a marathon be done in 13 weeks in the state I’m in? Place your bets. I’m going to try, but I’ve also made myself a promise so I don’t get sick again. If I can’t do my 13 miler at the right point in my plan then my trip to Venice will be as a spectator. Still, pizza though, right? 😜

Just got this in the mail today 📃 Three months ago I realised my dream of running the London Marathon and in the process raised £2,482.50 for @headway_uk, a charity close to my heart.💙 Thanks again for all the support and donations!👍 #anythingispossible #fundraising #charity #headway #headwayheroes #londonmarathon #VLM2018  #goals #lifegoals

How many happy runners are out there today enjoying this weather???
.
It’s bliss 🤸‍♂️It’s no secret I don’t like running in the sun so I was a bit excited to see the weather forecast promising howling winds and pissing rain 👌.
.
18 miles to do this morning, I was going to run solo but I had a slight fear of being struck by lightning so joined my local run tour guide @mjlees666 on his run (at least if I did get struck he could carry my body home).
.
18.6 miles with 1835ft of elevation @9:47 pace 👍.
.
Pretty epic run taking in all the beaches, Wooly, Putts, Croyde & Saunton ❤️We had rain for the first 5 miles, it dried off a bit which I was a little gutted about... I like proper pissing rain 😄but soooooo nice to run without being boiling 👌when it comes to running I am a winter girl 🤗.
.
Week 3 of Bournemouth Marathon training done ✅ 38.6 miles... time for a rest 🤙.
.
Next week is rest week 👍Time to recover 🛌🛀🍫.

@traineronthehill:  Running a marathon is a rollercoaster of emotions, electric highs to brutally tough lows.

But this point of the London marathon is always the highlight for me 🇬🇧 .
Tower Bridge you were amazing 😄

More people than have climbed Mount Everest, then the 3,838 people that have completed all six @wmmajors World Marathon Majors races. Which is well under 1% of a global population of approx. 7.6 billion people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I started the journey I wasn’t aware of that noteworthy stat. Whilst it’s nice to know, running for me is about MY journey and not solely about the finish lines & times. It’s an opportunity to be the best version of myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whilst I enjoy running and want to run beyond my 18 marathons. Being a runner isn’t solely how I define myself, it’s easy to get caught up in labels, by what we “do” by our jobs, our interests, social positions etc. But. Know yourself but hold that idea lightly.

L❤️ve this run!!
.
Had a 10 miler to do and not a clue where to go so @mjlees666 suggested one of his loops which included Boode (hills) so of I went.... we actually both did the same run today but he disappeared into the distance after about a mile... 🙋‍♀️.
.
Boode is fab, it’s rolling hills and beautiful views and barely a sole in sight...(just one horse 😬🤦‍♀️) To make up for Sunday’s shocking hill efforts (sulking then walking 🙄)I ran up all of these 🤸‍♂️
.
@gin_and_bear_it_ gin_and_bear_it_ you should try it if you fancy a new hilly 5/6 miler away from the traffic, it’s a beaut👌
.
I finished the run with a loop around Braunton burrows.... all good 🤙.
.
Now to plan Sunday’s run...18 miles 🤔

Week 3 of marathon training begins 🏃‍♀️
.
Today’s run was 10 miles ran “easy” which is possibly the ONLY “easy” long run on the whole plan so I savoured every mile 😃. Ran to heart rate ❤️
.
So why the water melon? Because it makes a prettier picture than my sweaty face..,.
.
And all week I have been using this melon (in absence of a kettle bell) to do a ‘bingo wing’ work out in the kitchen while I cook.... surely I am not alone with this???? Someone...anyone??? No.. just me then 🤦‍♀️.
.
I got too hot doing the ‘water melon workout’ last night so cracked it open. Eating it is nicer than hurling it around the kitchen 😂😂😂🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉🍉

Today’s run was a noisy one.
.
The plan was to follow @mjlees666 pace me through 14 miles at 8mm pace.
.
That’s my goal Marathon pace 😬and it ain’t an easy pace for me...as I proved today 😂..
.
The first 3 miles were ok.... then it went a bit down hill, my theory is I just got too hot. I literally felt like my brain was cooking 😱..
.
Have you ever heard a tired old dog panting because it’s overheating?? Well that was the noise I made for the next 11 miles 😂👍.
.
The second pic is of me WALKING up a hill I have always run up 🤦‍♀️Not impressed and currently off to pray for rain ☔️.

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY
—————
One of my favourite pictures of us, when my wonderful mother handed Evie over the barrier to me at mile 25.5 of the @LondonMarathon, I had been looking forward to that moment for 25.5 miles and it kept me going. Standing there with three amazing ladies, my absolutely EPIC mother, the love of my life @fitcetera and holding my world Evie Mae. It was one special moment that’s for sure.
———————
I’m extremely blessed to have them in my life, and no matter what stresses or drama comes along I know we can stay strong, resilient and stand undefeated. Smiling widely because we all appreciate life and the journey we are on.

Some runs are worth celebrating 👏🏻
.
I really struggle with REALLY pushing myself doing speed work  on my own.
.
My brain tells my legs I can’t keep up that pace and I give up 😞I go home and get annoyed with myself because I know I can do it.
.
The solution...
.
Get @mjlees666 to pace me. He runs, I follow. Simple.
.
Without having to constantly check my Garmin for my pace my brain can’t tell me I can’t do it because it doesn’t know what speed I am running at.
.
It works. I did it and I loved it (maybe not the last split 🤢😉) 8 miles of up tempo intervals (4mins/8mins repeats)
.
And I didn’t swear at him once 👌
.
Sometimes you just need a little help from your friends ❤️Or a kick up the ass from your fella..which ever works for you 👌
.
*disclaimer: no I haven’t been out running already and now having gin for breakfast. This was yesterday’s run but IG refused to post it 🤬

I don’t have many running medals, but I am so so so proud of each of them! Especially the Sidcup Marafun medal circa 1990 😂 #medalmonday And yes it turns out that I only run in London! 2x London Marathon, 2x London 10k, 2x British 10k (one of them is my wife’s though) 1x Petts Wood 10k.

Week 2 of marathon #7 training begins 💪
.
10 miles ran to heart rate ❤️I did yesterday’s planned route (which was aborted) my legs felt a bit tired...I don’t usually run 2 days in a row, my legs always feel better with a day off in between but had to due to work.
.
There was lots of talk of rain but not a drop, it was super muggy 🤢if it rains later I am just gonna go and lie on the grass and soak it up 👌😂
.
1 horse encounter...and yes folks another Zeborse spotted 👌😂.
.
I know it looks like I wear the same kit everyday BUT in my defence it’s not the same, it does get washed and it just happens that my coolest kit is all fluro pink 😂#sorrynotsorry #theseemefromspaceyouknow #salomon #vlm2018 #timetoplay #trailrunning #loverunning #runner #northdevon #lovewhereilive #braunton #marathontraining #thisoldladyruns #runnersofinstagram #strava #runner  #instarunners #trailrunner #lonelygoat #runningsolo #mountainhardwear #nosweatoutdoors #medal #fitnotskinny #amibraveenoughtodoanultra?#londonmarathon2018 #woolacombemarathon2018  #northdevonmarathon2018#bournemouthmarathon2018 #lundyislandrace2018

Tinsy bit crumpled via the post but this arrived on Friday from @meningitis_now . I’m so proud to have ran for a charity that is very close to my heart after contracting viral meningitis when I was 23. I’ve always wanted to run @londonmarathon and realised that dream and achievement in April this year whilst raising money for a fantastic charity. Thank you to Meningitis Now for the awesome support through marathon training and fundraising. Thank you to everyone that donated online, in person and/or attended events. I’ve made some lifelong friends along the way who too have experienced the blood, sweat and tears that goes into a marathon and training for one. Finally thank you to my family for supporting me and looking after the kids and especially to my hubby @markharris2178 that had to sit on the sidelines and watch me endure this crazy task I set myself. He cycled with me on long runs, waited in a cold car in the winter and hugged me when I couldn’t go on and ended up crying at the side of the road in Ramsey ❤️. I’m so pleased to have raised £2,611 for the important work Meningitis Now does and will not rest until meningitis no longer exists and no-one has to lose their life or have it changed because of this disease. My marathon chapter now closes but much love everyone and thank you ❤️❤️❤️😘 #charity #marathon #running #meningitisnow #londonmarathon #vlm2018 #londonmarathon2018 #training #spiritoflondon #fundraising #proud #family #challenge #goal #fitness #runnersofinstagram #friends #runningbuddies #hubby #thankyou #viralmeningitis #teamtangerine #teamtangerine2018

It was a hot hot hot one today. 
Nice to run with @barbertronruns and @lilliesfitness for a bit, but I couldn’t cling on the the PB attempt for the whole race. 
No we’re off to the Athletics World Cup. Zzz!

Catching up with a former colleague and settling my #vlm2018 debts (buying him a drink for finishing first!). 120km solo ride in fabulous weather through the stunning #cotswolds Lovely view from the top of Dover’s Hill - worth the effort! #cycling #swimbikerun #triathlontraining #londonclassics #ridelondon #ridelondon100 #easportingchampions

Undefeated! Tough field yesterday meant I had to dig deep to get my second gold sticker in a row in The Royal School dad's race! Need to work on my start line concentration if I'm going to make it a hat-trick next year 😂

British 10k this Sunday. I feel undertrained for this, but will go out there and enjoy it all.

PS I’m not sure what going on with my crazy hand? 😜

Got up early this morning so @mjlees666 could drag me out for some tempo interval madness🤪.
.
It’s week 1 on Bournemouth Marathon training and this one is all about speed...😬
.
It feels like a long time since I’ve done any efforts like this and it took a few miles for my legs to start moving but I think I actually enjoyed the suffering 😱who I am???????.
.
Obviously it was a boiling hot sweat fest 🙄 Got home to have a shower only to find the water pressure had dropped so much it stopped working...it’s ok I’ll have bath I thought...forgetting I broke the cold tap on the bath 🙄Little House on the Prairie take 2 🤦‍♀️.

Super chuffed to get this 👍Don’t think I have had a certificate since I was about 8 when I blagged my gymnastics badge without being about to do a cartwheel...or a hand stand...
.
But this one is legit 🤗I ran 26.2 sticky miles of the hottest London Marathon ever and you lovely folks out there sponsored me 🤗.
.
Thank you ❤️.

When your driving home from work to do your 10 mile run and your boyfriend calls...
☎️it’s not good news... no water in the village as some pipe has burst...the supermarkets are out of water...panic is setting in.
.
So off to Bideford  to stock up on a trolley full of water...(17p a bottle...bargain 👌)
.
My mind is going into panic...
.
But I need to run??? I’ll need a shower!! I’m going to stink!!! I need a poo! I need to shave my legs!! 😱😱😱😱.
.
I almost didn’t run for fear of stinking but I figured they would have it working by the time I got home...er no......😷😲.
.
It was practically a scene from Little House on the Prairie (showing my age here 👵🏻) having a bath in a tiny bucket from water heated up on the cooker 😂😂😂fml I hope they get this sorted!!

I've completely lost any motivation recently so this is a very timely reminder of what I can actually do when I push myself. Taken a few steps back of late but now it's time for a big plod forward again.

Are you ready for the Lundy spam??? Well that was a beauty! Thanks @puretrail for putting on a tough but stunning race yesterday!!! It was hard but an amazing day!!!!

We had dolphins swimming along side the ferry ❤️
.
We didn’t get sea sick 👌
.
We ran all over the island in crikey hot weather 🔥(yes that was my fault 😬)
.
We got the best medal EVER.
.
We got the best race tee EVER! I never take those crappy tech tees you normally get but these are fab...I’d show you a picture but there was a gel explosion in the bag 🤣.
.
Had a fab day hanging out with @mjlees666 @gin_and_bear_it_ @rachelsylvia_wildthingdesigns @devon_running it was so much fun!!!!!!!
.
No idea what my chip time was, where do I find that??? Strava time was 2.23 💪.

My Monday motivation, can't wait to get back into running it's 5 weeks now since I have had to relax on my exercise and the last week I haven't been able to do anything, but it's not the end of the world when my back is fully repaired it won't take long to get back into it. #mywwjourney #weightwatchersuk #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwfooddiary #mondaymotivation #medalmonday #vlm2018 #wwflex #wwworks #willgetthere #wwuk #wwflex #wwfitpoints

Week 6 of my #roadtoberlin 🇩🇪 is complete. It was a beautiful run, although, sweaty ☀️ The only thing I didn’t like about this run was the extra 6lbs I was carrying! I need to find a better way to carry water. I only had a couple of sips so had a full vest for the whole 18 miles! I had a @torqfitness gel at 15km and it definitely helped. This training cycle has made me realise how unprepared I was for #vlm2018 and I probably shouldn’t have done it!

I need to find a better way to carry water. I only had a couple of sips so had a full vest for the whole 18 miles! I had a @torqfitness gel at 15km and it definitely helped. This training cycle has made me realise how unprepared I was for #vlm2018  and I probably shouldn’t have done it!

So it turns out that launching a new business model a week after #vlm2018 #londnmarathon was a bad idea.  I had a full on #burnout / #adrenalfatigue crash, and now I’m foggy and slow on a good day.  Bring on the #selfcare for a few weeks I guess, before #venicemarathon training becomes too overdue 😱
Night shift treadmill run = absolute sweaty strug fest!

My ego won’t allow me to put down my distance and pace, but trust me, it wasn’t great! 👎🏼

This is where I live ❤️

This is where I work ❤️

This is where I play ❤️
.
Today’s run was just an easy 3 miler, saving my legs for Sunday’s race 👌.
.
So I did I little loop around Baggy point, early enough to have it all to myself (apart from sheep), it was sooooo beautiful and it’s all here on my door step ❤️feeling lucky to live the life I do 🤗.
.
I finished my run with a swim in the sea ❤️❤️❤️Is there any better way to start the day??? .
