Week 5 completed! Blue skies, sunshine and extremely sweaty โ˜€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅต Today I had a 22km run with 7km @ easy pace and 3km @ fast pace x2 and then a quick warm down. Pacing was all over the place with the new watch but it felt good! Next week I step up to 60km from 52km this week so will have to take the recovery days easy! I hope everyone is making the most of the sunshine and smashing their training goals?! โœ…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ Https://www.strava.com/athletes/kieran_mccauley

Can only be one medal Monday today . . I gutted for all those who didnโ€™t get in and excited for those who did. . . 2019 will be my 3rd London Marathon. I know thereโ€™s some controversy around people getting in multiple times, but Iโ€™ve never got in through the ballot either. Iโ€™ve got in through GFA everytime. I missed the deadline to confirm this year, so Iโ€™m raising money for charity. . . There are some other amazing spring marathons around too, such as @manchestermarathon and @edinburghmarathonfestival . . P.S. how nice is the rejection jacket this year?? . . #asicsfrontrunner #asicsfrontrunneruk #imoveme #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #womensrunningcommunity #inspiringwomenrunners #runningmum #runnersofig #runchat #runningcommunity #marathonrunner #runnergirl #mumswhorun #londonmarathon #londonmarathonballot2019 #vlm #manchestermarathon #edinburghmarathon #springmarathon #charity #marathontraining #medalmonday #medal #bling

2019 just got extremely interesting!! Yesterday I found out I got a place on the London Marathon ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ Given my unlucky track record of applying for London I signed up for the Edinburgh Marathon too...... The races are four weeks apart and Iโ€™ve decided to run both. This is without a doubt the hardest challenge of my life so far and I cannot wait to cross both finish lines!! ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ Iโ€™ll be putting all my training on Strava so if youโ€™re curious feel free to follow me. Good luck to everyone still waiting on the ballot results!!

Helsby 4 Villages Half Marathon ๐Ÿ I was using this as a training run, to see where I am and gage what training needs to go down for Edinburgh. Well I surprised myself with a PB ๐Ÿ”” I felt I ran really well and really should have pushed for sub 1.50. A guy on the PA said there was a hill 7-10, there was no hill ๐Ÿ˜‚ a Wilmslow RC lady told me off at mile 11 because I wasnโ€™t trying ๐Ÿ™ˆ so we picked up the pace and it felt good to have a strong finish! I am still crap at running downhill and it felt like everyone and there dog passed me on the way ๐Ÿคญ there was a man pushing a buggie who stormed past me, never seen a buggie in a race before! Highly recommended this race such a great community run, lovely route, definitely on the cards for 2020! . #nomeatathlete #igfitfam #instafitness #runningcommunity #runner #running #runnergirl #thisgirlcanrun #instarun #marathontraining #worldrunners #runlovers #ukrunchat #runnersworld #runnersofinstagram #womensrunning #runninggirl #runlikeagirl #edinburghmarathon

Come rain or shine or come feeling fantastically fresh or horrifically hungover Iโ€™ve got to stick to the training plan! Week 3 completed!โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅณ It took a while to finally get out but I got there in the end. Yesterday was a 15k run at 5.20 and 6k at 4.50(MP). Couldnโ€™t quite stick to the pacing but got the job done. โœ…

My usual lunchtime running route - loops round the Carrick! Marks the beginning of marathon training with 18 wks to go until EMF 2019 (then Berlin in September) This year Iโ€™ve a huge goal: to crack a sub 3:45, my last 3 have been around 3:54-3:56 so determined to push that bit harder and get there! If not, have some fun trying ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ : . . . . . . #emfmarathon #emf2019 #marathontraining #edinburghmarathon #run #running #edinburgh #scotland #marathonrunner #goals #runningmotivation #berlinmarathon @berlinmarathon

Medal Monday ๐Ÿ… first medal of 2019 and it was a PB! Helsby 4 villages Half 1.52.36 ๐Ÿค— I loved this race, my mum used to race it about 10years ago and recommended it to me. It was a foggy old morning followed by some freezing rain but by the 10.30am start it had cleared up and it was just cold. Lovely mostly pan flat route, few undulations around 7-10 which I much prefer to pan flat. Passed some old farms and gorgeous houses. It was so well marshalled and organised ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป it felt like a fast field of runners I was passed by loads and only managed to pass a few ๐Ÿ˜‚ definitely on the list for next year, PB written all over it! Swipe for a close up of the medal. I bought the tee and they gave me a free hat, the T-shirt was designed by a little boy at the local primary school who won the best design and got to start the race! . #nomeatathlete #igfitfam #instafitness #runningcommunity #runner #running #runnergirl #thisgirlcanrun #instarun #marathontraining #worldrunners #runlovers #ukrunchat #runnersworld #runnersofinstagram #womensrunning #runninggirl #runlikeagirl #edinburghmarathon #medalmonday

@breast_cancer_care... ๐Ÿ’ž So this is happening... Iโ€™m running 52.4 miles at both the London marathon and the Edinburgh marathon, they take place on April 28 and May 26. As they are both 4 weeks apart. My aim to finish both of the races at the 4 hour mark :) wish me luck! But most importantly this is to raise money for Breast Cancer Care... a charity very close to my heart. My mum Siobhan is now almost 10 years in remission. The people at this amazing charity, gave her the support, help and guidance through her darkest days and 10 years later still continue to do incredible work for families and people effected by Breast cancer. Iโ€™m trying to raise ยฃ100 a mile - so around ยฃ5,240 in total. Iโ€™ll be emailing and contacting anyone and everyone who will listen and can help :) So if you are reading this and can donate ยฃ1 or ยฃ2 or ยฃ5 - whatever you have, I would really appreciate it! It will all add up. ๐Ÿ˜Š The page is here at: Justgiving.com/jamesgreenerun Please share, re post and spread the word. Letโ€™s get the ball rolling. Also if you wanna go for a run, let me know ๐Ÿ˜‚ #2019 #breastcancerawareness #breastcancercare #londonmarathon #edinburghmarathon

Monday session done. Took the weekend off and had over 9 hours sleep. This morning's 5km run and back session but felt really enjoyable. Starting to actually feel healthy again. Happy days.

When I turned up to the Four Villages Half Marathon this morning I didn't really know how it would go. I feel good at the moment but haven't really done enough long runs lately. 1.16.46 later and I finished over 2 minutes quicker than last year. Ok, I know conditions today were pretty much tropical compared to last time but I'm over the moon with my run. Not quite a PB but definitely a step in the right direction. Who else ran today?

Sunday morning medium run... Not really focusing on pace this morning but just getting the miles ticked off. Happy to have now clocked 36 miles for the week post manflu episode and as I now head into marathon training mode for the next few months. Wasnโ€™t in the mood for my usual epic rock anthems to keep me company this time instead i opted for some podcasts from @richroll about staying focused with your fitness/training through the winter months. Very recommended. Anyone get any good podcast suggestions? #run #runner #runnersofinstagram #winterrunning #wintertraining #marathontraining #wintermilessummersmiles #edinburghmarathon #garmin

SUNDAY RUNDAY ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ I went to a great talk this week at @londoncityrunners by @fullpotentialcoaching and one of the elements discussed was running by effort, not pace. The premise goes like this: most of the time as runners weโ€™re obsessed with our pace, splits and times and we can lose track of noticing how we really feel when weโ€™re running. My marathon plan splits all my sessions into levels: L1, L2, L3, L4. L1 runs are meant to be easy. These are the long runs and the easy days. Itโ€™s not about a certain pace per km, itโ€™s about feeling comfortable on your feet for a long time, being able to hold a conversation as you go. Itโ€™s training endurance, not speed. Some days this pace will be faster than others and depends on lots of factors; fatigue, terrain, yesterdays session etc. The important thing isnโ€™t that every easy run you do is the same pace, itโ€™s that it feels easy at that time. Otherwise, youโ€™re not training the same session - youโ€™re training tempo/steady/threshold as applicable. So for todayโ€™s long run I didnโ€™t check my watch, I just ran at what felt easy to me and every time it started to feel harder, I slowed down. ๐ŸŒ And so goes another 12km into the bank โœ… #marathontraining #edinburghmarathon #running #runnersofinstagram #pacing #sundayrunday
