It feels so strange to think that this time last year I had never done a marathon, and now I’m training for my third with my fourth also on the horizon! 🏃🏽‍♀️ . Marathon training is a real beast, it takes physical and mental strength, support from those around you and a pinch of crazy 😜 I have some easy lunchtime recovery miles today so I’m using this pic as motivation to get out there 🏅 . My first marathon @londonmarathon was the steepest of learning curves. I’ve written a blog about my hints and tips to cope with your first marathon, you can find the link in my bio! 💪🏼 . . #londonmarathon #marathontraining #marathontrainingtips #manchestermarathon #liverpoolmarathon #runnergirl #racebling #marathonmedal #marathonfinisher #asicsfrontrunneruk #inspiringwomenrunners #runningblogger #thisgirlcan #thisgirldid #thisgirlcanrun #runlikeagirl #ukrunchat #runningcommunity #irun26point2 #myfirstmarathon #myfirstmarathonjourney

#transformationTuesday - This Summer I received the opportunity of a lifetime to be a part of the #NikeWomenMarathonProject. I've always wanted to run a full marathon at some point in my life, I never imagined it would be in Chicago and I would get to do it along side 39 amazing women and with my dream company. Through #NWMP I gained friendships, knowledge, love and respect for the art of running on top of memories that will last me a lifetime. I'm so excited to be able to tell my children about this one day, I want them to know that crazy dreams DO come true. Thank you again @nikelosangeles @nike, I’ll cherish this forever.❤️ - It was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life, 26.2 miles is not easy- till this day I can't believe that I did it but I DID do it! The left photo was from our kickoff weekend and the right is from race day, between the two photos is 15 weeks, hundreds of miles, pain, sweat, tears and a whole lot of smiles. This experience reminded me that I am capable of anything that I put my mind to. I had so many setbacks during training, from being extremely sick to taking time off for Lasik, multiple trips and destination weddings. There were times I felt like I was behind on training but my family, friends, coaches and teammates were always there to remind me that I'm going to do just fine. - I was never much of a runner before, I actually have said the H word when it came to running🤭 but now I can genuinely say that I love running.☺️ It's such a beautiful art and an amazing community. As I ran the Chicago Marathon I saw people of all ages, ethnicity, body shapes and I loved seeing it so much!😍 Running is for everyone. My crazy dream of running a full marathon came true and now I'm ready to do repeat this crazy dream again . - LA Marathon 2019, here I come with friends running their first full marathon. I'm so excited for this journey together!☺️❤️ #NikeLA #Nike #JustDoIt #ChicagoMarathon #myfirstmarathon #crazydreamsdocometrue #readyformarathonnumber2

Ahh! Longest run!🏃🏽‍♀️18.2 miles /29km along the river today ☀️ I wanted to challenge myself to run 18 miles and said if I found it ok I’d sign up for a marathon (maybe). I felt really good all the way round, apart from my legs feeling quite heavy for the last 5km or so, and thought about adding a couple more miles on at the end but didn’t want to be stupid and push it! So think I might be signing up for one, eek. Such a lush day to be out, summer is cominnnggg 💛 Today wasn’t about speed but “time on my feet” covering distance and I ran with The High Low @dollyalderton @pandorasykes and @wellness_ed #WellFar in my ears 👌🏼 Now for pasta, and the pub! 🍷

Vielen Lieben Dank für Eure zahlreichen Glückwünsche 💕Nun zu gestern! Um 7:30 Uhr haben wir uns auf den Weg zum Start gemacht. Aufregung war schon ziemlich hoch, aber ich hätte es noch schlimmer vermutet 🤣 Die Zeit im Block bis zum Start verging schneller als gedacht und das Wetter war optimal ☀️ Die Stimmung an der gesamten Strecke war einfach so genial. Dennoch hatte ich bei KM 27 einen klitzekleinen Hänger und war froh, dass genau dort meine Freunde mich erwarteten und es bei KM 28 ein Gel an der Verpflegungsstation gab. Ab KM 29 war dann das #mimimi schon wieder vorbei und es ging mit voller Energie durch zum Ziel. Also vonwegen bei KM 35 steht der böse Mann mit dem Hammer. Mich hat er nicht getroffen 😜 Abschließend zum Projekt Marathon: Jetzt im Nachhinein betrachtet war die Vorbereitung um einiges anstrengender und „schwieriger“ als das was mich gestern in Berlin erwartete! ☺️😊 . #berlin42 #myfirstmarathon #laufen #laufenmachtglücklich #laufliebe #running #run #runhappy #loverunning #marathoni #ididit #keeprunning #justrun #happyme #berlinbebt #beatberlin42 #marathon #bmwberlinmarathon2018 #instarunners #imoveme #justrun

It’s true what they say, it was HARD AF 😅 but I finished my first Marathon✅🏃🏻‍♀️I was hurting, in pain, and more pain, crying, happy, calm, then super awesome🤩 I got to explore how far my body can go, and how my mind can go even further.

On such a high from our 22 mile run!!! The best part was @nps_runy and her SIL, visiting from Germany, meeting us at the Back Bay to run! I was looking forward to seeing them on our route! We had run 8 miles by the time we met up with them, and we got in 6 together around the bay - it was great! 💖 Can’t thank @carunner4coffee enough for the company and encouragement, we didn’t even break out the headphones and that says a lot!! 😘 Last pic is my 5 mile run on Saturday with little Miss P buried in the stroller. A total of 27 miles for the weekend 😱☺️🤩🤗🥳 . . . #runningbuddies #lululemon #runningfriends #runhappy #morningrun #procompression #procompressionambassador #keepittight #motherrunner #runningmom #happyrunner #runnerd #geekyrunner #teamsparkle #sparkleathletic #rlyeliteteam #HSHIVE #hokaoneone #hokaclifton #lamarathontraining #lamarathon #myfirstmarathon #marathontraining

6 bloody weeks! Doing well on mileage, got a strategy for fuelling my run, Pilates session once a week plus foam rolling in front of the box.

I finished my progression workout today and hit all my paces, but it was way harder than I was hoping thanks to a weak mental game. I kept stopping to rest as my mind would get the better of me and tell my body that I couldn't keep going, even though physically I felt fine for the most part. I'm learning that I really need to work on my mental game especially when I'm running faster or farther than is comfortable. I want to try incorporating some mantras for when the going gets tough - mostly centered on relaxing since it's my stress/panic response that kicks up even when I'm physically fine. If I can overcome that, I think that will be a step in the right direction. I'll also keep a few in mind for when the going gets tough distance-wise and I just want to quit. *** Workout: 2mi warm-up @11:07, 2mi @ 10:15, 7mi @ 9:13, 2mi @ 8:45, 1mi @ 8:02, 1mi cool down @ 12:22. Total distance = 15mi at 9:40 avg pace. Wish there had been less stop/start but I can say, at the beginning of this training cycle I couldn't have done this workout no matter how many stop/starts I gave myself!! *** Mantras to try: ❇️ Deep breaths, relaxed body ❇️ Breathe and relax ❇️ I think I can, I know I can ❇️ Dig deep, breathe deep ❇️ I can do this all day ❇️ I am relaxed and focused ❇️ I will finish this ❇️ You're going to be so proud when you're done ❇️ I am running comfortably ❇️ Relax, run easy ❇️ Breathe easy ❇️ One foot in front of the other ❇️ I can, I will ❇️ I want it, I've got it ❇️ You can do this *** What mantras do you use to get you through tough workouts or hard days?

Blackpool Half - was aiming for anything sub 1:50 today as previous PB was 1:53. Turns out where I was at the start was just in front of the 1:45 pacer so thought lets just go with them and if I blow up I blow up; quick maths 8 min miles it is. 🏃‍♂️ ———— 2.5 half lap course, starting from north pier, heading south to central pier. Heading North nice and flat no wind; heading south rolling hills with quite a strong head wind. ———— Slightly faster pace felt okay, not exactly comfortable or easy but just held on to the 8min miles. Really quite windy on the sea front but dropped a caffiene bullet around mile 9 for the 1st time, kicked in and got me over the line in a new PB of around 1:43 ish official result pending. ———— Never thought go out and do a sub 1:45 today so really happy with my time. Goes to show it is so much in your head but the training is paying off! Now time for a post race recovery beer!🍺Less than 50 days til Manchester #trainhardraceeasy #raceday #halfmarathon #myfirstmarathon #marathontraining #runchat #manchestermarathon2019 . . . . #runningmakesmehappy #runnerscommunity #Iwanttorun #furtherfasterforever #cantstopwontstop #runhappy #goals #running #fitness #training #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #motivation #runtastic #runningman #motivation #missionmarathon #ukrunchat

Week 10 done with. It feels so strange to reduce all the mileage for this week to recover. Like my body expects me to do a lot more. Still I ended the week strong with todays run. It was a little harder than I expected. Super strong winds on a incline run is not a fun combo. Still I got to try out my new ASICS which was good. Only 7 weeks remaining to train up for my big day. Will have some serious long runs over the next few weekends followed by a few weeks of tapering.

After my long run on the treadmill last week, I was so happy to get out this morning. The weather was great, and I was fighting my way through my longest run so far. 29 km is a whole new territory for me which comes with aching legs and some questions during the run (why do I do this to myself? Oh, right, I love running). I'm very proud of myself for getting it done today. Even though it meant stopping two times during the last 6 km and talking myself into not throwing the towel. Have a great Sunday, everybody 🏃‍♀️ . . . . . #fit #fitgirls #run #running #runaddict #loverunning #runningmakesmehappy #runhappy #latviangirl #latvian #burystedmunds #instarunner #instarun #igrunner #runnersofinstagram #runnerscommunity #laufen #laufenmachtglücklich #asics #asicsgelkayano #garmin #garminwatch #sundayrunday #longrun #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #marathontraining #myfirstmarathon #noexcuses #parkinsonsuk

On this pic, I ran ten kilometres with my coach and awarded with the first medal in my life. Coach supported me the whole route, joked, took water at the rehydration points, constantly offered to overtake someone ahead. I am now in a difficult period, but that support has warmed me so far. Today I’d like to say thank you to people who do not spare their energy, time and words. This is the main gift I have. I also would like to share a new thought for me: when you feel bad, you have to be brave to show your vulnerability and allow others to support you. Only then you can reach the finish line and get a medal, and not get stuck on a halfway with your delusions, that nobody can help. People nearby are capable of tremendous actions if we believe in them. Therefore we choose them. I also haave to remind that I’m going to run @chimarathon with Team @worldvision to help provide life-changing clean water to children and communities in the developing world. Thank you for you support here: https://www.teamworldvision.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donate.participant&ParticipantID=160152 Your Miriam На этом фото я пробежала десять километров вместе со своим тренером. И мне вручили первую в жизни медаль. Тренер поддерживал меня весь маршрут. Шутил, брал воду на пунктах регидрации, постоянно предлагал обогнать кого-то впереди. Пребываю сейчас в трудном периоде, но та поддержка греет меня до сих пор. И сегодня хочется сказать спасибо людям, которые не жалеют для меня энергии, времени и слов. Вы мой главный дар. Я также хотела бы поделиться новой для себя мыслью: когда очень-очень плохо, нужно решаться показывать свою уязвимость и позволять другим быть рядом. Только тогда можно прийти к финишу и получить медаль, а не застрять на полпути со своими заблуждениями, что никто не способен помочь. Люди рядом способны на потрясающие поступки, если мы верим в них. Потому мы их и выбираем. И да, я буду бежать Чикагский марафон с командой Worldvision, если соберу небольшое пожертвование для развивающихся стран, которые нуждаются в чистой воде. #chicagomarathon Чтобы помочь, нужно пройти по ссылке выше! Спасибо! Ваша Мириам
