5k run at lunch, staring to feel a little easier now. Have slowed it down a tad. Then I run up the stairs to my flat to let someone use the lift, wow that hurt 🤣 5 flights 🥵

Sharing this photo of me having finished swimming the length of Bala a few years ago. I emailed the photo to my grandad - as a Welshman I thought he’d want to know - and he said “I never cease to wonder at the exploits of the Hanley family - deep sea diving,globe trotting marathons and now lake swimming ! I rejoice in the reflected glory of it all” I sadly can’t be with him to say a proper goodbye today but we’ll raise a glass to him tonight, and hope that he’s reunited with my grandma, and there’s a pub with a 24 hour sports channel. Love you, Grandy ❤️ . . . #swim #swimmer #swimming #openwaterswimming #outdoorswimming #wildswimming #outdoorswimmingsociety #adventure #explore #greatoutdoors #getoutside #outdoorswoman #adventuregirl #thisgirlcan #bewild #adventureculture #wildandfree #swimwildandfree #sharetheswimlove #microadventure #lifeoutdoors #adventureanywhere #swimlife #sport #girloutdoor #lakebala #llyntegid #snowdonia #snowdonianationalpark #wales

Week 12, Day 3 Half Marathon Training 🏃🏻‍♀️ 40 mins Easy + 20 secs Strides 🏃🏻‍♀️ That’s it! Training is complete. Next run is the half 🙂 🏃🏻‍♀️ Today’s run was my first ever go at Strides. Scroll 👉🏼 to see how I totally nailed them! Top pace set for me was 4.47 and I hit 3.11 😎 🏃🏻‍♀️ 📷 photo is me stood in the middle of my road with not a car in sight (excluding driveways 😜). It’s all so surreal. 🤕 Final thought... last 3 runs I’ve had pain in my right shin. I would really love it to magically go away. Anyone have any advice? So far, stopping and stretching has helped, but doing that before the run hasn’t.😬😬 #run #runner #running #runforfun #runlikeagirl #runnerscommunity #runningcommunity #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #ukrunchat #thisgirlcan #tmr #thismumruns #thisgirlruns #girlswhorun #runningmun #headspace #womensrunning #instarun #ukrunchat #runnerfullstop #couchto5k

I can’t deny there haven’t been days when I woke up tempted to pack it all in and give up 🙃 Then I changed my mindset. Stopped selling myself short. Pushed the unwanted and unsupportive people out of my life and I am already reaping the benefits of a healthier mindset 🧠 So here’s to me 🥂 For building the path to the future I want For learning to remove toxic energy from my life For learning to trust in my hard work and most of all.... For learning to love myself ❤️ #selflove #workhardplayhard #mindset #bossbabe #like #yougotthis #business #loveyourself #believe #growth #personalgrowth #love #girlpower #buildinganempire #thisgirlcan #grafter #mindsetmatters #mylife #myrules #dreambig #dream #birmingham #girlboss #learning #apprentice #futurelooksbright #pose #glasses #powerlips #nuskin

Just me and my hill for the next month. The marathon plan is coming to an end and the odds on getting to do even a solo mara are slim so what's next? Well I want my hill legs back... Enter #howardshillchallenge 2 reps + 1 to catch up for yesterday. It's only a wee little hill and somewhat dwarfed by the rest of today's route but I think I'll be glad of that by the end of the month when I have 30 reps to do! . . . #30dayhillchallenge #marathontraining #marathon #hilltraining #hillrunners #trailrunning #fellrunning #stravarunners #ukrunchat #womenrunners #runlikeagirl #thisgirlcan #runhappy #runnergirl #instarunners #runnersofinstagram

Our girls absolutely rocking #AutismAwareness today by wearing Blue, raising awareness and raising some funds for @autismspeaks.

As much as @zackdanielsfitness is enjoying a nice break from training @lucyfl2 and I (sorry lucy lol) I have still continued training. Been a bit of a mission and lacking in equipment. I am reluctant to source overpriced gym kit that I would throw in the garage the moment that the gym reopens.. Its been a learning curve for sure. It's difficult between lack of space, equipment and the introduction of #twatcat But I have tried to do a little every day, although I have now put a pause on my runs and am going to going for long walks... I can guarantee it will start raining tomorrow. I know being stuck at home is a ball ache, but the sooner the virus stops circulating, the sooner we can go back to a relatively normal life...

Tabata 2 - did this workout from @12roundsboxing coaches @richie_ak and @chloejmonty - 6 rounds of 6 exercises 40/20 ... loved it, thank you!! Then I joined @boxingkat LIVE for a 12 round ‘bag attack style’ killer of 2 min rounds. I did all combos with 3lb weights in each hand... can already feel it in my arms/shoulders. #tabataworkout #tabataapril #stayinworkout #boxingmakesyoubetter #thisgirlcan #fiftyandfabulous #coronavirus #activenation

Your fitness journey isn't just physical. It's mental too. Make sure your surrounded by positive people, and have your heart filled with encouragement. And love. It's important to keep yourself happy on the inside, and show it on the outside. We need this more than ever now. Remember, you are so much stronger than you think. You are capable of doing so much! You really gotta dig deep, and never forget you have goals you NEED to achieve. Your loved ones need support too. Make sure you spread positivity, and love everywhere you go. Keep your mental health strong. Stay focused. Don't slack up now. Keep moving forward 💪🏽 #thisgirlcan #thursdayquotes #thursdaymotivation #thursdaymood #almosttheweekend #staystrong #stayconsistent #keepmovingfoward #mentalhealth #girlswholiftheavy #girlwithmuscles #strongnotskinny💪 #strongissexy #becauseyoucan #bethebestyou #nicolewilkinschallenge #goalgetter #fitinspiration #fitnessaddict #fitnessmotivation #motivation #discipline #ambitions #pushyourself #makeitalifestyle #makechangesnotexcuses #noexcuses #youareenough #yougotthis #youcanandyouwill

Was going to rest my hip today but as I already had my running gear on from doing the workout with Joe Wicks at work with the children, I decided to head out anyway. I actually felt really good and tried to pick up the pace despite the uneven fields and hills! Nice surprise to feel strong 😊 #running #runner #run #runnersofinstagram #runhappy #runinspiration #runnergirl #runspire #runninglife #ukrunchat #thisgirlcan

I need a kick up the ass to get me out the door but once I'm out I am loving it... I am Sooooo over battling the wind though, so come on world !!! That can surely go now??? You've messed with everything else so give us wind free days 🤞 . Didn't fancy doing my mile effort, set by PMG today due to not feeling well, okay that's a lie I have eaten way to much crap to even think about running a mile really flat out fast... So I'll save that for another day 😂😂 x . #pmgcoaching #runnershigh #myrunning #lifeofarunner #run #runrunrun #runtoexplore #thisgirlcanrun #thisgirlcan #runmarathon #marathons #nikerunner #momentumjewelry #runmotivation #runnersmotivation #runchat #ukrunner #lovetorun #runnerscommunity #womensrunningcommunity #strong #strength #easymiles #ilovetorun

#throwbackthursday This week I’m throwing it back to my first lactate test with coach Dave nearly three years ago! I’ve been running 8 years, but hadn’t PB’d in a while before seeing Dave, since then I’ve PB’d in every distance from 5K to marathon, reducing my half time by over 5 minutes for the 1/2 and over 10minutes for the full! Although we may not be training for anything specific atm, it’s good to set a good foundation, so when all this craziness is over we can hit the ground running (pun intended). . Keep running, stay strong 💪🏼. #blizardphysiotherapy #cep #rab #lactatetrainingpaysoff #runhappy #runnersofIG #thisgirlcan #runninglife #instarun #runningmotivation #runstrong #runonclouds #ONrunning #onarunnershigh #marathonrunner #marathonprep #runcommunity #instarunners #IGrunners #runtoinspire #marathontraining #run #runner #letsrun #ukrunchat #newrunner #stravarun #london2020 #untiedbutunited

After today’s news, I couldn’t find a better time to go for a run and relax🏃‍♀️ Can put the time to volunteering now 💙

Day 165/366 - D.O.M.S. and how I deal with them - During this period of isolation lots of people have been trying out new sports and doing homework outs so I thought I’d share some of my tips of how to deal with DOMS. - What are they? DOMS stand for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. It’s when you do exercise that you body is not used to (heavier/more strenuous than usual or just something new) and you muscles ache soooo much!! - How do I deal with them? I have really bad #DOMS at the moment because I’m working out and practicing more than I’m used to and so I deal with them by doing gentle stretching/exercise in the morning (after micro exercises) and in the evening. Known as active recovery. After my #post-workout shower instead of my typical moisturiser I use #Arnica which is an #essentialoil that helps to relax the muscles by increasing blood circulation and acts as a mild pain relief. I also wear #compression leggings in the days after an intense workout/practice because compressing the muscle that’s been worked helps to increase the blood flow in your legs and therefore the built-up lactic acid can be broken down quicker and lead to speedier recovery! My favourites are by @wearetala!! It’s an #activewear brand with an amazing ethos! - (I don’t have specific fitness or sport science qualifications so please tell me if I’m wrong!! I’m so eager to learn more about this side of exercise!) - - - #wearetala #teamtala #yoga #yogagirl #yogainspo #fitness #fit #fitnessgirl #sportscience #delayedonset #getfit #getfitdone #gymbabe #gymgirl #womeninfitness #thisgirlcan #weleda #arnicaoil #wellness #womeninwellness #wellnessgirl #quarantinequeen #activerecovery
