October 19th - it’s my birthday (I’m starting early cos born in the UK)!
Hey everybody, please go wish a happy birthday to the lovely faruine (Kim) - it’s her birthday today too.
Happy birthday Kim! Have a fantastic day. I know you just started the grand adventure that is college, which I hope is going well. May you have an amazing year full of fun.
"Hamstring injuries are rife in modern sports, but they could be avoided if the athletes did hill training. It doesn’t have to be fast, just enough to make the muscles feel they’ve been working. Balancing the muscles between the front of the thigh and the back is essential to ensure hamstring problems don’t arise. Some athletes seem to be constantly getting over or suffering from these injuries."
If you don’t have hills … use stairs!
It’s my birthday on Sunday! Here’s my Birthday request for all of you here. Please take a few minutes out this weekend to pay it forward:
Thank a blogger or somebody who inspired you or supported you - let them know the difference they made to you.
Inspire somebody -Encourage someone in their journey, reach out to somebody you see struggling and encourage them. Your words will have more power than you realize.
Support somebody - give to a fundraiser, sponsor a runner, a triathlete, a walker. It doesn’t need to be a lot; it will mean so much to those you’re helping … and to the cause they are supporting.
Reach out to somebody - check in on someone you haven’t seen in a while and rekindle that friendship… tumblr edition - send an ask to a tumblr who has been inactive for a while and see how they’re doing.
Have a great weekend. Spread the love. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
Morning friends! It’s a beautiful chilly morning - perfect for a long run.
It’s race season here in the Queen City; for the last two runs in town on my Saturday long run I’ve come across a race … Race for the Cure a few weeks ago, and the Know Hope 5K today.
It’s fun to run AND cheer!
Talking of cheering - good luck to all you racers this weekend. I hope you have a grand time and finish strong.
♪ the cold never bothered me anyway ♫
If I’m gonna put a nude on this blog, this is the one.
Have a great weekend friends :)
Pendleton the hedgehog.
I have not yet run since Sunday’s 18 miler. Not intentional, not ignoring it, not because I’m in a dark hole.
And I’ve been catching up on a lot of sleep. I’m just beat.
Must not derail this training anymore. ANYMORE!!!
