The results are in! Aaaand it’s a N E W P B for me 🎉
Female position 1 🤪
Chip time 1:37:33.
Massive congratulations to Katie 🥈and Alison 🥉 who were hot on my tail but also so lovely at the end.
Running brings with it lots of highs and lows and the medal is representative of weeks of snow runs, early morning runs, late night runs, runs you love and runs you definitely did not. .
A new PB also means I’m treating myself to a massage! My personal incentive. However, it’s also a great mental boost towards the bigger goal, LONDON MARATHON in 9 weeks’ time. 😳🤯. .
I’m very very close to 50% of my fundraising target for #AnthonyNolan, if anyone wants to push me into the four figure mark, the link to sponsor me is in my bio. Hugely grateful for all the generous donations so far🙌🏼. .

This is it, the first fundraising event of many that we will be taking on to raise awareness and money for Mental Health!
We will be running in the @derby10k to raise money for the @derbyshiremind charity.
If anyone can donate towards this worthwhile cause it will be greatly appreciated! 🏃♂️ Please use the link at the top of this post to donate, every little helps! 🙏
You’ll never know your limits unless you push yourself to them👊🏼
Finding and exceeding new limits every week (both in and out of training)! It’s uncomfortable, exhausting and requires everything I’ve got; but also so so rewarding! ✨
Aim is 3 miles this morning to see how my knee feels. Last week's 6 left my knee feeling pretty sore so I am booked to see a physio next week to try and find out what's going on and get some strengthening exercises. My guess is I have a weakness else where that my knee is compensating for. Will let you know how it goes!
|| Itching to get outside and start running in all my favorite spots around the city to train for full marathon number #3. For now, I'm running inside on a treadmill but it's crazy to think that this fall will be my 3rd full. Mostly because before my 1st full marathon it was just a dream on my bucket list. I remember the day when I signed up thinking, "yeah, okay let's see if I actually finish". Not because I didn't believe I could but because I had never run even a 5k before my first. NOR did I train nearly enough but I wanted to finish, AND I did! There is so much more to this story BUT I look back to the moment I hit a wall at 13.1 when I thought I was done and I remember just how far I pushed myself. 👣 I reflect back to THAT halfway point often. When I need the motivation to keep pushing through things that are hard, I remember that moment looking down at the pavement thinking how am I going to do another 13.1 miles?! We have SO much more in us than we give ourselves credit for. Sometimes we just have to start. Sometimes, we have to keep going when we are half way through. Sometimes, we have to believe in ourselves enough to make it happen. Whatever that is for you, start it + finish it! ✨ Hope you guys have a wonderful Tuesday! || #joyfullforgood .

Have you seen the newest, oldest craze? Cupping has been around since ancient times in Chinese medicine, and like many things lately, has made a comeback in modern medicine and healing. When I saw @m_phelps00 sporting the perfect circular bruises in the olympics it reminded me of my first glimpse of @kttape on @kerrileewalsh and how I was inspired to learn the tape as a modality to augment treatment. So I took an interest in cupping, as I did #kttape, to have as another tool for my patients and athletes.
▪️One of my favorite aspects of this type of myofascial release is that it applies negative pressure to the tissue. Other release techniques that we do such as manual therapy and #iastm or #graston, all provide positive pressure to the tissue, when sometimes as practitioners we can sense that the tissue just wants to be lifted vs pressed on (think IT band insertion, lateral epicondyle). I have found great results with a specific technique called Tissue Distraction Release with Movement, versus the normal static cupping that leaves the perfect bruise circles. This technique (seen in video above) lifts the top layers of tissue while the patient activates the relevant tissue underneath the cup. The movement of tissue while the cup is providing a force on the top layer may further assist the release of fascial entrapments in the tissue. I also like to take the cup and glide it along the length of the tight tissue. This athlete had no marks at the end of treatment.
▪️This athlete is a seasoned #trailrunner, #ultramarathoner. She had a trail race where she put in a lot of speed in her down hills. Her knee felt crunchy afterward. She was most tender on the patella and proximal quad tendon with tightness in that could be felt in these regions. I had her bring on her discomfort with a yoga pose in deep knee flexion. We did the cupping with muscle contraction and gliding the cups, and she did the yoga pose again now without discomfort. She was also given strength and flexibility exercises to improve mechanics overall for hills. PTs will use a modality such as cupping to improve the tissue and symptom and an exercise 💪to help it maintain the gains

Do you know the feeling when sitting on the train or in the car and watching the world pass by? As a child I got easily bored, but now I expressly enjoy it. The same applies to running: with age I started to enjoy sitting in my own thoughts while my legs take me forward. Running is a different travel for adults. 🏃🏻♀️🌊🚞📍Neusiedl am See, Austria 🌍 #worlderunners (📷: @petermullermac w/ @irunmom
