I have spent the past couple of week reflecting on my previous races, I have thought about where my strengths lie, what my weaknesses are what I enjoy doing and what I don’t. I have done so many races in the past from track to trail, road to mountain and I think I have figured out what I want to focus on (for now 😉).
I think it is good to race a whole host of distances on all different surfaces, it makes you strong and more importantly you can figure out what you enjoy the most. I had such an amazing time in Chamonix this summer and can’t wait to go back but at the moment I am not really interested in races where I have to spend half of it walking up a mountain…I want to RUN!
I am going to use this new focus to see what my little legs can do (they are little I just take pictures at crafty angles 🤪).
My favourite distances are 100km road and 50km runnable trail. What are yours?

Don’t forget to have fun 🥳
With the autumn marathons and ultras rolling around SO quickly training is ramping up for everyone and quite frankly we’re all tired 😂
It’s meant to be hard, otherwise everyone would be doing it. The fact that you’re showing up everyday means you’re a superhero.
Don’t lose sight of the joy of running. Run with friends, find new routes, remember why you started.
Gorgeous 10 miles on the country lanes last night, found all the usual hills and then some more. This is absolutely my favourite way to get a road run done 🤩
“Why don’t we run the travelator?”
As soon as I said it I regretted it. If you’ve not had the pleasure it’s 47m of climb over 450m, all on gravel. Exactly like the travelator from Gladiators
It’s enough to make you question your choices on a good day. I have no idea why I suggested it after a morning gym session and feeling rough after my second jab 😂
At least it’s only going to feel easier next time!
