I’ve just found out about @goodgym , it’s a charitable project that combines a local running group with good deeds in the community, such as pairing with isolated older people and helping them with tasks they can no longer do by themselves. —— It seems a great way to combine fitness with helping others in the community. —— There is a local Middlesbrough group in the start up phase but need 100 registered runners in order to proceed. They currently have 56 runners. —— If you are interested in registering, I’ve included a sign up link in my bio. —— #goodgymmiddlesbrough #northeastrunners #ukrunchat #goodgym #gooddeed #dogood @benparkes #RunWithLess #middlesbrough #loveparkrun #albertparkrun #stewartparkrun #teesbarrageparkrun #thisdadcanrun #igrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunners #ukrunning #ukrunner #run #runner #ASICSfrontrunner #runthroughuk #ukrunnerscommunity #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #running #instarunner #utb #runhappy #instarunners

Thankfully my running ability is better than my drawing ability. A nice game of treasure hunt with Erin where I'm not surprised she didn't find the treasure based on my drawing.. . #ukrunchat #running #run #runnersworld #runningdad #runner #athletics #ThisDadRuns #runthroughuk #runningstreak #runningdaily #RWrunstreak #5kaday #rundaily #dailyrun #runningfather #instastravarunnning #asicsfrontrunner #desborough #marathontraining #sub3 #treasurehunt #treasure #challengeanneka
An open letter to Charlotte Cooke aka @whatcharlierannext. . . Charlotte. It is I, your chubs Aussie friend Andy. . I’m sure you are aware that we are ambassadors for @thresholdsports and will be running all three ultras this year. They gifted us entry because we pretty much are Threshold groupies. They recently have now added a forth ultra of 50km (half/marathon options) along the Thames Path, finishing near Windsor Castle. . This event takes place on the 11th May and is going to be simply epic, plus it is your birthday that day! To celebrate this new event and your birthday, I vote we have a dress up ultra marathon birthday party! The theme - The Greatest Showman! . If you do not accept my invitation, I will post all the blooper photos from our Switzerland trip (though they mainly are of me crying like a baby 😳). . So so you publicly accept this invitation??? Also if anyone else is doing the event, come join the Greatest Showman party bus! . . #ad #thresholdsport #riverthames #windsorcastle #london #ultramarathon #happybirthday #greatestshowman #runthroughuk #challengeaccepted #holdmydrink
Day-46😃💙 Happy Monday everyone, hope you are all well. Today I had to move my rest day as I had physio today, to sort my left Achilles out as it’s been really stiff and sore the last few weeks. . She did a really go job with it and helped ease it for me, I just wanted to take the day to let it recover and move my rest day from Friday to day. . Sometimes life and other things will get in the way of your running plans, but don’t stress about it make the decision and move forward. Right have a fantastic evening and I will see you all tomorrow 😃 . #runningmotivation #run #running #instarun #instaunning #runthroughuk #ukrunchat #mondayrun #runmonday
🏃🏻‍♂️Richmond Half 1:24:53🏃🏻‍♂️ Great race on a fast course at the Richmond half marathon yesterday. Aim was for a sub 85 mins (1 hour 25 mins) which I achieved with 7 seconds to spare. Fantastic start to 2019 to build on for the season. 📸 @msdanimayy - thank you for your continuous support!
My first #medalmonday and both for 5k races from #runthroughuk . The next two planned races this year are both 10k's. The first in just under 3 weeks time, the second in about 5 months time. I'm also going to be joining the #raceatyourpace monthly challenges for the extra medal blind and the training tops. Plus I want to run more places in London. Hyde Park sounds good. I'm not sure about the Velo Park or Crystal Palace though, as those hills would be killers! #fitness #running

** BRIGHTON MARATHON 2019 ** Hi friends . This year my wife is running the Brighton Marathon in April and is raising money for Battersea Dogs and Cats home . Could I ask my friends and family to please show your support and give a small donation via just giving page . It would mean alot to me and Kim and of course it is for a great cause , supporting the lost doggies and moggies in finding a new home after suffering abuse or their owners are no longer able to look after their pets . Kim is training like a warrior and is a true inspiration to me . I've watched her suffer injuries , shed tears through frustration and slowly get stronger in working towards completing a distance of over 26 miles.

Much needed recovery run after yesterday 🏃. . Had a bit of a pain in my left calve after the run and my knee started acting up again 🙄, so plenty of foam rolling and back to using a knee support for a week or so.

Haven’t done one of these for a while...so nice to get to do a #medalmonday post🏅❤️ And who doesn’t love a bit of bling?! • Enjoyed running the Leicestershire Half Marathon yesterday ~ nice flat route, decent medal and t-shirt, and running a PB was the icing on the cake. • Legs are feeling surprisingly good today ~ forced myself to have a very could bath last night and the legs definitely appreciated it! • Happy Monday all!💚 . . . . . #medalmonday #halfmarathon #leicestershirehalfmarathon #runthroughuk #leicestershirehalf #prestwoldhall #running #runningmedals #womensrunningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #instarunner #goaldigger #happymonday #mondaymotivation #pmgcoaching
Physically broken right now 😑 But will do my best to be ready for Sunday’s race 🏃🏻
#MondayMotivation It may be hard, but it just takes that first step - no matter how small - there are endless opportunities awaiting 🙌😃
Taking it easy today after a shorter-than-expected run on Saturday, but getting lots of chores done is also not a bad thing. And even though the run was only 5K as opposed to the 10K I wanted, I still managed to finish in style 😂🏃🏼‍♀️🥰🌳☺️ #running #hydepark5k #bettersafethansorry #finisherphoto #runthroughuk #recoveryday #reminiscing

Woohoo ☀️☀️☀️ who else made the most of the sun at the weekend?

REST & RECOVERY . . When writing programme I often spend as much time looking at where rest and recovery days fit in, as I do the running. Rest & recovery days allow the body to adapt to the training but also allow adaptation to take place. Don’t under estimate the importance of these days and if you see them written in your plan .... remember they are in there for a purpose, so respect them! 😄🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️😄

No new medals to add to the collection this weekend BUT...I finally got medal hangers so my medals aren’t just in a shoe box under the bed/hanging on my bedroom door handle🏅🙌🏻 . Never mind the silverware though, I’m mostly proud that: a) I managed to hang them b) without damaging the wall in my rented flat. And of course c) that they haven’t yet fallen down🤞🏻Guess there’s still time for that though! 😂 . And yes, the entire lower rack is purely @runthroughuk medals - I’ve already run out of space on that one and need to buy another hanger 😂 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #run #runner #running #ukrunchat #runthroughuk #medals #runr #medalmonday #diy #mondaymotivation #runstrong #runlikeagirl #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #londonmarathon #marathontraining #personalbests #womensrunningcommunity #runningcommunity #thisgirlcan #earnedit #racebling #medalcollection #teamenertor @enertorglobal @enertorphysio
Happy Monday all. Does anything beat the satisfaction of knowing all the hard work and early mornings you've put in has paid off? I think my face here sums up the happiness. Captured at @toughrunneruk #hokaoneone trail half in #AfanForest last weekend. 📸@_edmorris
One of my favourite thing is to run with pooches and friends (😂😉) . • Fancy meeting one of them ?

#MedalMonday If ever you could call a medal picture romantic, this is the one!! Beautiful photo taken by @lorna_heslop after last week’s Chase The Moon at the Olympic Park 👌🏼🏅📸 @
After last night’s run I finally feel like this comeback is starting to hot up. Running at 6:45 min/ mile pace felt easy and I was barely out of breath. . This pic was taken from a 10,000m race - The best race I ever ran. I initially went from unsure as to whether I would be in good enough shape to hit the track this summer to now...more determined than ever! . Put those miles in. Work hard. Stay positive. Have a good attitude. You’ll win eventually at whatever goal you set. Just keep moving...🏃🏼‍♂️💨💨 . Have a good week and make it count 💪🏻 . #runonclouds #beon #onrunning #roadrunner #runforfun #happyrunner #runhappy #keeprunning #irun #runthroughuk #runnersworld #runtoinspire #ukrunchat #instarunners #instarunner #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #mondaymotivation #igrunners #RunAlways #loverunning #nevernotrunning #instafitness #iloverunning #instarun #gorun #runfaster #runshots #runningman #runners
Posing for a picture is the only time you’ll ever catch me standing still these days. This morning I asked a gym member how their weekend was. They struggled to recall what they’d done over the past 48 hours. Fuck that. That’s not my life anymore. I took a match to my memories of an existence that wasn’t right for me, and I watched them burn. So this is me in 2019, standing in the ashes of who I used to be. . . #asicsfrontrunneruk #asicsfrontrunner #imoveme #ad #runstagram #trailrunning #ultrarunning #runthroughuk #ukrunchat #runwithfriends #runfree #instarunner #fitnessmotivation #runningcommunity #runnerswholift #lifterswhorun #mondaymotivation #endurancetraining #c25k #10k #marathonrunning #runnersofinstagram #strengthandconditioning #powerlifter #hybridathlete #getoutside #greatoutdoors #explore #snowday
#motivationmonday Completely agree with this quote. No matter what you want to achieve whether it’s getting a PB, increasing your distance or training for a race. It’s all about the effort you put in.
Sometimes the photos taken whilst you’re out running show you a damn good reason to keep at it... those man boobs have GOT to go! 😂 🏃🏼‍♂️ Very gentle run @greatrunlocal Needham Lake today as a recovery ahead of a long run on Tuesday. And nice to actually run alongside @charlottesrunningdiary to finish together 🏃🏼‍♂️ Been a great week of runs... time to up the ante this coming week and get some more serious kilometres under my belt... well, trainers! 🏃🏼‍♂️ #run #runner #running #fit #runtoinspire #furtherfasterstronger #runchat #runhappy #instagood #time2run #instafit #runthroughUK #happyrunner #halfmarathon #runners #fitness #workout #cardio #training #instarunner #instarun #5K #10Ktraining #10K #runr #ukrunchat #PB #walking #walk #weightloss
No running today after yesterday’s 20 miler. We did head out to Thetford Forest with the fam though where we hired some bikes and enjoyed the sun. @albiethebear had a great time too! Got some strength training and stretching in this evening to hopefully set me up for next weeks running.

Smashed it. So proud of myself for running 5k in 30m 59s. Who knew eh? February last year I ran my first ever run through 5k race at the Olympic park and it killed me. Now I'm flying round the courses. Onwards and upwards for a 10k at Finsbury park next month now. Then my first ever Half marathon in October for the Freddie Farmer Foundation in memorial of my late cousin Stuart.#thisgirlcan #iwill #run #runner #loverunning #10knext #RunThroughuk #smashit @runthroughuk
London at its best. Except i didnt feel my best, and i bailed. Much like yesterday my mind said yes, the body said no. I was just so tired. ... So tale of the tape; 10 miles. Wanted 16 but no where near. Started the day at work where i had a pending deadline so worked half a day. ... I had the delight of running through many of the great parks and bridges of London, Hyde Park, Battersea, Wandsworth, and Hammersmith. ... Dont know what to say really. Ive been here many times, but it needs to be ‘positive mindset on’ ... positive pants on, and just remember how far you’ve come; you’ve done 6-7 weeks of training from a standing start, you’ve lost 6kg since Christmas, and you’re running a 1:37 half marathon 😀. So lets hold onto that! ... Every week is a new week. Ive rewarded myself by buying myself a takeaway, and a beer 😀. ... Lets bring on another week of training ...

Leading running group it’s not easy. You take care of the group , you feel responsible for it and the same time you wanna make sure that everyone is happy and enjoying what you love the most. But definitely this task is much easier with bunch of amazing like minded runners. Thank you all for joining me yesterday on the mysterious and hilly adventure , exploring English paths. • See you all on 06.04 or maybe at @maverickrace on 09 March?! #happytrailrunning ______________________________________________ #ukrunchat #enduranceathlete #suunto #runtoinspire #wildtrailrunners #weruntogether #polishrunner #biegaczka #nevernotrunning #runthroughuk #trailrunner #ultrarunner #trailrunnergirl #thisgirlcan #londonbylondoners #runningmotivation #runclub #londonrunners #runnerlife #myreasontorun #longrun #wearetherunners #girlswhorun #runlikeagirl #happyrunner #inspiringwomenrunners #womeninsports #femaleathlete
Finding the reasons to celebrate . I may not have hit a PB for my 5km or 10km runs this week, but being honest I didn’t earn it, I hadn’t worked hard enough for them . Every new record is progress though, and I will take the 1mile and 1km milestones I earned instead 🤗 . New 1km: 4.11 < 4.33 New 1mile: 6.49 < 7.22 . Here we go for week two of @edinburghmarathonfestival half training this week. 15 weeks to go 🏃‍♀️
First ever race pacing duties done ✅ So delighted to bring home the 2.10 runners, long course and haywire GPS but still within 30 seconds. Some incredible running from our pack today. The route was great- runners swarming round wherever you looked and I loved seeing friendly faces on the loop backs. The Olympic Park is my favourite place to run so it only seems fitting to pace my first half marathon here. Thank you to the team for imparting their wisdom and welcoming me with open arms. I certainly hope to be pacing more in the future as it’s SO much fun! Added two miles to this (I had planned three but my legs were just done by 15). Hope everyone had an incredible time at the first @runthroughuk @eastlondonhalf 🏃🏽‍♀️❤️💪🏼 . I actually felt more nervous about this then I did about my last marathon! 😱 . . #asicsfrontrunneruk #eastlondonhalf #riotsquad #sundayrunday #eastlondonhalfmarathon #runthroughuk
DON’T CALL IT A COMEBACK —— The return from injury is complete from 3K Easy Pace last Saturday, building gradually throughout the week to my longest ever run Today of 24K or 15 miles. —— Glad to be back in the game. —— Now plenty of stretching, foam rolling, rest & recovery to make sure I can pick up full training next week on plan. —— Although the 24K was run completely at Easy Pace, my heart rate was a lot higher than usual, averaging 180bpm but spiked to 202bpm at one point. I’m putting this down to coming back from injury and hopefully after a couple more weeks of training, the fitness and HR will return to normal of 135-150bpm for Easy Paced runs. —— Today was also a new route, heading from the Riverside Stadium to Redcar seafront and back again. —— This is great because I can now extend my usual route of Tees Barrage to Riverside and combine together to add extra an 8K, 16K or 32K onto the overall route as required in future. —— I may end up in Saltburn for a post-run Ice Cream 🍦 —— 6 long runs left before race day. —— #benparkestrainingplan #relive #manchestermarathon #manchestermarathon2019 #marathon #marathonrunner #marathontraining #thisdadcanrun #ukrunchat #igrunners #runningcommunity #ukrunners #ukrunning #ukrunner #run #runner #ASICSfrontrunner #runthroughuk #ukrunnerscommunity #northeastrunners #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #running #instarunner #runningdads #runhappy #instarunners #gettingitdone #runwithless
My legs are hurting after my ride today and they are blown up. The wind was brutal so this ride was an average of 12mph. Feeling it today. 🦵
It's the struggles of today that will build a stronger tomorrow! Stay strong and stay positive. . There are three runs which I will always remember, all where I had to really dig deep and am immensely proud of: . 1) when I tried running past the 13.1 mile mark for the first time during training. My body wasn't having any of it from the start. I got to 13.5 mile mark and fell, grazing my face. Still got to it! . 2) Milton Keynes 20 miler. I was going strong until 6.5 miles in, then plantaar fasciitis struck. It was my longest run before first marathon. I stretched it out for a couple of minutes, jogged for a mile to monitor it and finished the event. Was on crutches for 2 weeks after and couldn't train for 6 weeks (lesson learned)! . 3) First marathon last year - Brighton Marathon. Because I couldn't train for 6 weeks prior to it, I was still thinking of pulling out on morning of event. Mentally I pushed through it though! . #transformationalrunner #determinedrunner #strongertomorrow #asicsfrontrunner #runnerscommunity #run #motivation #runninglife #struggles #runthroughuk #runchat #runner #endurancesports #athlete #marathoner #chicago #chicagomarathon #GNR #instarunner #marathon

Sunday means one thing, long run! Great weather for it today too. Sunshine and warm enough for a t-shirt in February, can't ask for more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today's session was 3 x 3 miles at marathon pace, with slow recovery miles in between. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My legs are definitely ready for a rest tomorrow - we're heading up to Alder Hey Hospital for my sons first review after his operation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hope the training has gone well today, who else did a long run? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #imoveme #runhappy #ukrunchat #ukrunners #running #runthroughuk #choosetorun #runnersworld #runchat #competeeveryday #runners #gorun #runforlife #fitfam #ukrunclub #adventure #stravarun #leanin15 #garmin #ASICSFrontRunnerUK #ASICSFrontRunner #marathontraining #keeprunning #roadrunner #runningcommunity #instarunners

Wow this lady just did her first ever race, a half marathon. She told me she'd never run further than 15k before and that she was expecting to finish in 2 and a half hours. We planned to run every single inch of it together, which we did, but not at the pace she'd predicted. We pulled each other along and finished in under 2hours and 12minutes ( chip time 2:10:45 ). That's a PB for me and was not the gentle chatty 13miles I'd anticipated. @silvia.p.wellness you are a machine and you should be so so proud. I loved crossing the line with you (after the impossible to sprint on gravel finish) hand in hand. Girl crush right there. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have been able to maintain pace running into those wind tunnels that were thrown at us if I'd been running solo. #leicestershirehalfmarathon #leicestershirehalf #runthroughuk #leicestershirerunning #thisgirlcanrun #thismumruns #prestwoldhall #fitinmy40s #runningwithfriends #runningbuddy #plantpowered #veganrunner
5 holiday miles. . So pleased to wear my WeRunThis vest again even though I got a few uncomfortable stares from the locals. . We’re staying at one of the neighbouring Emirates and it’s interesting to see the contrasting cultures just a few miles from Dubai. . Anyway without offending anyone here I shall continue to run in my vest and shorts as it’s too bloody hot to run in anything else! . Plus each shirt provides a month of school meals to a child in Kenya. . One shirt. One child. One month. .

Well today didn't go to plan, I decided not to start after my warm up mile. Cried, cried some more then pulled my big girl pants up & followed my head & not my heart. It's tough not to just go & do it but I will be thankful when I'm smashing that 17miler on my plan next Sunday... . I got to see @marathon_maddy absolutely nail her run, she whizzed by me so fast at the end I got a great video of her from the back! Well done lady what a runner you are.. & Thank you for the shoulder & reassurance. Insta is amazing for meeting amazing people.. .

“If not now, when?" was playing on repeat in my head. . In 2016, I was in a bit of a rut and I was about to turn 49. . I still had great big dreams, goals and ambitions ... but they were stuck in my head. To make them real I had to take action. . What if I'm too old? . What if I'm not good enough? . What if I fail? . Fail at what? Fail at going out there, having a great time - doing my best, being my best, seeing the world, meeting new people, seeing what I'm capable of ... . NO! that's not failing. . Failing is not taking action. It's giving in to fears and doubts and saying I can't ... I'm too old. I'm not good enough. I might come last. It might not work. . "If not now, when?" kept on playing, and was getting louder. . So I took the plunge. . For my 49th birthday (April) I bought myself a place in the JungleUltra (June). . Best decision ever!!! . I gave it a go. . I got injured. . It was soooo very hard. . I came last. . I had an absolute ball! . It reignited that spark again. The ambitious, adventurous, fun-loving, give it a go, brave, determined, proud, happy and full of love Nikki was back! . I put the phrase "Chase your Extraordinary" on my t-shirt to remind myself that chasing my dreams, my goals, my ambitions, my extraordinary is worth it!!! .

Leicestershire Half Marathon 3rd - 1:13:09 🔷 Absolutely buzzing with a 6 minute pb and to make it into the top 3 in my second Half. Beaten by a world champion Duathlete & GB Triathlete. With running >10k only once in the last 3 months had no idea how this would go. stuck myself to 3rd place and followed for 11miles, turned around to see 5th place made a huge close on us so kicked on for home, was the hardest 3k I've ever ran in a race but looking back now it was well worth the pain. Shout-out @samanthaharrison95 also of Notts Ac on winning the female race. @newlevelscoaching on the mic was amazing as usual making it into a great atmosphere 🔷 3 weeks til my next race so time to order a take away and have a well deserved beer #runthroughuk #halfmarathon #leicestershirehalfmarathon #ukrunchat #runner #runnersofinstagram #Asicsfrontrunner #athletics

We can’t wait to see everyone joining us next Sunday for our 2019 Half Marathon!
There’s no shame in being slow, no shame in being a heavy, fat, chubby runner. I take pride with every stride because to me is a challenge to be doing this and I fucking love it!! I am falling in love again with my body. It does struggle, it aches, it feels slow but I enjoy every mile as every mile makes me stronger. Hail to the slow runners for not stopping when everyone else has finished and there is just us crossing that finish line 🏁 . . . . . . . . #running #runningmotivation #runningmama #fatgirlrunning #chubbyrunner #curvyrunner #slowrunner #slowrunnersclub #londonlandmarkshalfmarathon2019 #training #prideineverystride #llhm #runthroughuk #10ktraining #5ktraining #runmummyrun #runwoman #lifecoach #lifecoachingforwomen #transformationalcoach #emotionalcoaching #mindsetandemotionalcoach #mindsetcoach #sundayrunday
