Time for a race recap... 🏃🏼‍♀️ I went into this race unsure if a sub-4 was possible, which was not the right mentality to have. I’ve got to work on my mental game, so any tips y’all have would be SO appreciated. I woke up Saturday, ate my breakfast and had Brad drop me at the start line. I lined up with the four hour pacer and started shortly after 8AM. ⭐️Miles 1-8: Stuck with the pace group even though she was going a bit faster than I would have preferred. Looking at my HR, I should have slowed down and separated myself from the group earlier than I did, but unfortunately I didn't. I had my watch on the clock face, so the only time I saw the pace was when the mile splits showed up. After running mile 8 at an 8:41 pace, I made the decision to slow down so I wouldn't completely blow up. ⭐️Miles 8-17: I slowed down to a more comfortable pace, but kept the 4 hour pace group in my sight.Mile 17 is where the wheels started to fall off. I am horrible about staying positive in races. Once I get past the longest distance I’ve ran in training I just freak out. ⭐️Miles 18-25: Complete hot mess. I started letting myself walk during the water stops and started the questioning of why the heck I even do marathons when I get so miserable during them. The four hour pace group started to get farther and farther away. ⭐️Mile 26-26.2: I wanted to have at least a 20 minute PR, so I ran as fast as my legs would let me and got it by the skin of my teeth. I crossed the line at 4:07:57 with a smile on my face (I think) to become a marathoner for the third time! . . . . . #instarunners #zensah #teamzensah #teamenertor #sharethespark #womensrunningcommunity #hshive #iloverunning #womenrunning #runnerscommunity #werunsocial #runnersrepost #mmalpha #inspiringwomenrunners #justrun #honeystinger #instarun #movemorefitness #runner #MMFitFam #movemore #domore #noexcuses #runtheday #running #halfmarathon #halfmarathontraining #runsquad #rungirlrun #sharethespark #mindovermatterathlete

I may never win a marathon, but I know how to snack after one! 😂 ❤️ Marathon recovery is going really well so far. I’ve had a Reese’s cup for breakfast the past two days. I barely met my step goal on Sunday and Monday. I haven’t done even one workout, and I’m not even upset about it. I love running, but I also love resting and want to make sure I’m not jumping back into anything too fast. I have no goal races on the calendar, and after training for basically a year and a half straight I’m enjoying the break! Happy Tuesday friends! #kiawahislandmarathon . . . . . #instarunners #zensah #teamzensah #teamenertor #womensrunningcommunity #hshive #iloverunning #womenrunning #runnerscommunity #runnersrepost #inspiringwomenrunners #honeystinger #instarun #movemorefitness #MMFitFam #movemore #domore #noexcuses #marathontraining #marathon #runtheday #runsquad #sharethespark #mmalpha #mindovermatterathlete

15 weeks and 587 miles of training for a shiny new 20 minute PR! ⭐️ 🏃🏼‍♀️ Not exactly the time I wanted, but the marathon is so hard and makes you work for every minute. Happy to be a three time marathoner and now I’m going to eat all the Reese’s cups and drink every Sprite I can get my hands on! 🤣 #kiawahislandmarathon . . . . . #zensah #teamzensah #teamenertor #runnergirl #womensrunningcommunity #hshive #iloverunning #womenrunning #runnerscommunity #werunsocial #runnersrepost #inspiringwomenrunners #honeystinger #movemorefitness #MMFitFam #movemore #domore #noexcuses #runtheday #running #runsquad #girlswhorun #runlikeagirl #sharethespark #mmalpha #mindovermatterathlete

My morning was full of training it started with run squad and ended with a swim set. Run squad was very challenging but I worked hard and made it through wasn’t sure I was going to make the run back to my car though I was so stuffed. Then I had to somehow make it through a swim set. Luckily my arms were working alright because I think I used them more than my legs in the swim set. Really happy with my training and looking forward to setting some goals for 2019 - - - - #triathlon #triathlete #tri365 #tritraining #swimbikerun #womenfortri #swim #swimming #run #running #runsquad #foher #fohette #foherco #healthylifestyle #triathlonisateamsport #outsideisfree #hardsession #traininghard

Really enjoyed last night's run. Not been out all week due to events & general life busy-ness. Have to be honest, I've been on the #strugglebus all week food wise. Spent the weekend wanting to eat EVERYTHING 😂 Who knows how the scales will respond to my erratic week... So last night reminded me how great it feels to stretch the legs, enjoy the company of fellow runners and feel free. Not all progress is measured in numbers and it's great to remember what the ability to run has given me 😊 Happy hump day ✌&💗 Sarah x #grateful #bekindalways #takingstock #slimmingworld #sw #slimmingworlduk #nsv #nonscalevictories #runningoutofdepression #itsoktonotbeok #mind #upyoursasthma #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #runningmakesmehappy #running #runsquad #runnersofinstagram #igrunners #timeonlegs #brooks #garmin #hrtraining #heartratetraining #8020rule #bemoretortoise

When a fellow HIVE athlete invites you to spin class three days after your hardest run half marathon, you can’t say no because she ran the full 😂 @honeystinger

2nd Winter Half of 2018... 1:50:18 Enjoyed it a lot more this time round, but that start is an absolute nightmare! Wasn't paying much attention, ended up with the 2:40 pacer and lost a lot of time on the narrow route. 😐👌 #MKWinterHalf #HalfMarathon #MiltonKeynes #RunSquad #SquadGoals #RedwayRunners #Running

BETTER. YOURSELF. EVERYDAY. Two hours at PT. Heat light bike extensive rehab exercises rolling out stretches & ice. Putting my health first again. Not allowed to run or spin yet. Love all of my therapists at @professionalphysicaltherapy. Not mad. I heal, I get stronger, I get better, I start on XT & get back to running, all in due time. Let my @mistercoachdecarlo know when that happens, put in a 100mi pain-free base, & get back to training :) One step at a time, one day at a time, & one mile at a time when I get back to it. DO. EVERYTHING. RIGHT. Until then, I bought myself some salt & vinegar potato chips & peppermint bark chocolate some selfies & I’ll be watching more Grey’s Anatomy while remembering the big goals 😬 . . . . . . . . . #Aysharuns #StrongInMyMakeup #notyourtypicalmuslim #nevergiveup #alwaysbekind #fitness #fitspo #BodyByTrackNation #muslimrunner #stronglooksdifferentoneveryone #selfiecoach #RunnersAgainstCheating #noexcuses #RunSquad2018 #RunSquad #RunGum #RollRecovery #DigDeeper #IonPerformance #IonRecovery #ModelsAreRunnersToo #RunArete #ElitesNotCheats #MakeRunningGreatAgain #MRGA #EatIfYoureHungry

So I’ve been constantly reminded recently to concentrate on walking. Firstly as it’s good cardio workout and also good for health and secondly if I get into the same routine, fingers crossed when I start running next week (hopefully) it should do me in good stead. And thirdly it also gives me a chance of clocking 1018KM for the year - map my ride (app) challenge. So 9KM this evening and also completed this challenge 😁 Onwards and upwards as they say. #run #running #runner #runners #morningrun #instarunning #instarun #instarunner #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #nikerunning #runhappy #runninglife #runsquad #runningcommunity #runlove #letsdothis #instagood #soundmindsoundbody #justdoit #nikeplus #optoutside #9K #stayfit #loverunning #walking #keepingmotivated #runchat #runr #ukrunchat
