*Apologies, the main image has nothing to do with this blog post. I haven’t taken many photos recently and I’m massivly missing being by the sea!❤
When I ran my last half marathon, I decided to take a 2 week break from Running. 2 weeks quickly passed and before I knew it, I was about to train for my marathon and I was actually excited about it!
That was two weeks ago, and since then I have done ONE run. One tiny weenie little 3 Mile run. And I miss it! I miss going out in the evenings, I miss listening to my favourite music, I miss that high when I get back and I’m ridiculously red and sweaty but I’ve done it. If 3 years ago, you told me I would miss running, I would tell you that would be impossible. For a start, I don’t run. And secondly, when I do run, I hate it so why would I ever miss it? And yet, fast forward 3 years and I’m itching to get my running shoes back on!
I’m feeling a lot better and I’ve nearly finished my antibiotics course so I’m hoping to get at least a couple of runs in next week. I won’t call it training, I’ll call it ‘post illness attempt at running’. I’m going to run my usual 3 mile route and also try to get a longer run in, hopefully around 5 /6 miles. I like this distance. It’s the distance before I start wanting to cry and go home. Mile 9 is my Worst Mile. I hate mile 9!
I’m also going to try something new. For ages and ages I’ve been saying I need to start eating healthily and sticking to a proper exercise regime and I last around 2.5 days before the biscuits get the better of me! So I have decided to sign up to Results with Lucy.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Results with Lucy, it is a subscription to online workouts which you can do from home or at the gym. It was set up by Lucy Metcalf and you can either subscribe to a monthly plan where you have access to all her workout videos or you can sign up to a plan. I have decided to sign up to the 12 week phase 3 plan (I go to the gym 4 times a week already so this is my sort of ability) which includes workouts AND a nutrition plan, amazing! I’m going to start this on Monday and I’ll be updating with you guys on my progress – there have been incredible progress photos so I’m really excited to get started!
Does anyone else have a favourite mile or a worst mile?
Has anyone tried RWL before?
