Long day today, lots of miles in the car with long meetings in between. I had different session in my plan but I had put off eating, tiredness and hunger aren't a good combination to do intervals on the back of. So I just ran, did middle couple of miles at 7 min/miles and a big hill to finish! .

WINTER 2013 Vs SUMMER 2017 ...... on the left was my first ever @parkrunuk in Chelmsford this was about six months after I started running before I had taken part in any type of race before........
.
.
This was probably where I gained a real dislike for 5k distance as i found this really tough and haven't taken part in many since! I think I completed it in around 25 minutes.
.
.
On the right was me running the Bassingbourn Half with @mrspowell2910 which is one of the most relaxed races I have ever taken part in, really enjoyed it! Lovely day, lovely race and lovely company. .

This post has just reminded me 'Winter is coming' ❄️⛈☔️ Winter training is so much fun ......

LONDON BABY!! My current PB of 3.27 was achieved at this emotional race in London, April 23 2017 
.
.
What a day it was, I had a quicker target but it wasn't meant to be on the day ...... I still got 3.27 and I stopped at the Portaloos around mile 23 in the tunnelso I'm still very happy with that ........ I met so many wonderful people which started by meeting up with the delightful little speedy beauty that is @little.runner.mel We met at Kings Cross and shared the journey to the start, so nice to meet such a talented runner that I'm always in awe of when I see her post ...... randomly we met again on the course even though we stared from different areas .... what's the chances! I also met the totally inspirational @aimzb03 who lives a life full of challenges but has one of the most positive outlooks I have have ever encountered! I feel lucky to have met her and heard her story❤️ As I walked around at the start I heard my name shouted from the baggage drop only to see gorgeous @kellyrunreed waving! Kelly is a bundle of joy and you can't help having a smile on your face after a chat with her......! Most randomly, I had been chatting to @tx_ksmamaruns before the race as we had similar times and we said be good to catch up but didn't organise it! As I walked with very sore legs away from the finish line who should come out of the Loos and say hello ..... only bloody Beverly from the US of A!! Unfortunately I wasn't with it enough to register who it was so feel I missed an opportunity to say hello properly!! I'm sure there will be another opportunity ....
.
.
So many other people that said hello, that ran alongside and shouted support! Not to mention the kids that made sure they were there to cheer me on! ❤️❤️❤️ .
.
People often ask about the London marathon and it's not simply just another race, it's an emotional rollercoaster of an event that embraces ever runner, all with their own story in the best city in the WORLD and literally changes their lives! Thank You #vlm2017 you have been one of the best experiences of my life.

Last and least favourite run of the week....... didn't enjoy this one at all! I've crammed my runs in this week and it's put me slightly off kilter. As soon as I woke up I kinda knew that it wasn't going to be a good one and I just generally felt a bit flat!
.
.
Saying that, I feel better for the run and it has lifted my spirits as a run generally does ...... I need some fun in my life, it's been all work recently ..... I need to go and do something stupid to cheer me up! That shouldn't be too difficult, I'm kinda good and being an idiot!  1605061154044237270_758745862

LOVED today's run! Went out for a steady 6 miles but felt really good after the first mile at a pace of 7.27 so picked up the pace and ran the rest at around 7.00 min/miles. I thought I might struggle after yesterday's double run but I'm definitely feeling much stronger and my speed is improving. I do love making gains and today is the first time in a LONG time I've felt like I've made real progress!
.

I've got my sights on the Cambridge Town and Gown now, there has to be a PB ..... it's been so long since I did a 10k I can't even remember what my PB is ....

Back to very different days in my late teens. Before I found my way in life, a time that was genuinely a real rollercoaster. .
.
.
Moving out of home at 16 and trying to make your own way in life is no easy thing and I look back and feel quite proud that I made it through such difficult years to where I am now. I was told I would never amount to anything and that was almost very true, I could quite easily not even made it to my 21st Birthday...... life can take you to so many different places and those tiny decisions can literally mean life or death.
.
.
Now that I have children I remind myself 'Never forget how hard it is to be a child' how hard it is finding yourself and ultimately love and family is the thing that will see us through. I certainly wouldn't wish my early years on my children ..... even if I did still have some wicked laughs along the way! ♥️ #flashbackfriday #fbf 1604264888649494718_758745862

Well that's expelled the groggy boozy feeling from my Martini and Champagne last night.
.
.
Today's run was easy first 3 miles then steady (7.30) mid 4 miles and easy last three, although last three were more steady too. It felt good to be out even though it was pretty windy and started raining again ...... finishes the week with a total of 33 miles which I'm happy with after Man Vs Mountain and a week away in 'Ull

.

I love that they all wanted to come out and give it a go ..... Jack did well even though he runs the least ...... Ted was the star today and did the full distance at a very good pace, that included stopping to pick up some conkers so he was probably at a pace nearer 9.00 minute/mile .......

4 MILES - 34:56
Today was our annual Humber Bridge Run, only the four of us this year, I think most of the guys prefer to go to the pub ....... as did I about 5 years ago! .
.
Really enjoyed the easy pace, just chatting and taking in the sights of the Humber Bridge ..... It's a fucking beauty !

It's that time of year when the big industry show is on in 'ULL and when I always run the Humber Bridge .
.
.
The normal gang couldn't make it today so will no doubt run it tomorrow as well .... today's run was nice and easy just to keep stretching those legs out .... nothing strenuous this week at all.

Discover jimgandon262's Instagram RECOVERY RUN
My legs still felt quite stiff today but it felt good to give them a little stretch and get them moving again.
.
.
I've got my plans clear now for next training focus ..... SPEED! Going to work predominately on my 5k and 10k pace. I've bought an annual pass to my local track so I can smash out some good lung busting sessions with the benefit of a measured distance. I can't wait to get stuck in ........
.
.
Oh and I start my new gym sessions and classes at the end of the week too ...... I might even get fit at this rate ‍♀️

Discover jimgandon262's Instagram MEDAL MONDAY
It's the only one ...... the one that took the most work to secure ...... an event that tested me beyond anything I've ever done before...... a medal that I will always look at and thing 'I fucking paid my dues for that bad boy' 
.
.
This year was so different to last year, last year i finished in 91st position, this year in 181st! Last year the weather was appalling and this year it was beautiful ...... two different years, two completely different races! It is soooo INSANE that it breaks you and then revives you again and leaves you asking for more! .
.
.
As much as it hurt and felt relentless right to the end the @ratracehq #manvsmountain is just an outstanding event, one that has to be experienced and one that in 2018 I'm going to train more specifically for ....
.
.
I've now got my official photos (swipe left) as usual I'm smiling, that's mainly due to being completely fucking NUTS!!

Wow ....... what a day, what a race ....... different to my expectations and more brutal that I could have dreamt. .
.
.
Last year the weather was so bad, very windy and torrential rain. The route was changed and we weren't allowed to the summit. We still did 22 miles but as i said, a different route. This year the weather was glorious so we did go to the summit ..... and it was busy, the tourists were out. .
.
.
It was about 13 miles to the top and coming down was just as tough ..... my toes were jamming into the front of my trainers and for the first time in my life I have toe nails looking to leave me at the bottom there is another 4 miles which involves going UP again with a VERTICAL KM and then down and through the water obstacles ..... my legs had virtually nothing left by theN and were sooo sore but up I went and back down again. The water obstacles, well that water was COLD but it kind of gave me a second wind and I even managed the rope climb at the end! 
.
.
So did I enjoy it? I fucking LOVED it!! Hooked up with @milebuyclub At the start which was very cool, great to meet you Tim! Will I do the @ratracehq Man Vs Mountain? HELL YEA!! I'm crazy, of course I will!

I've arrived and registered for Man Vs Mountain, I've picked up my number '509' and had my kit checked ..... I'm READY 
.
.
This is my most favourite event, it's epic but BRUTAL! 22 miles in total, running to the Summit of Snowdon and then down again, but when you get to the bottom you then have to go back up the 'Vertical Mile' which on tired legs is pretty gruesome. After completing this timed mile you then tackle about 6/7 water obstacles, abseiling, jumping off a high board into a quarry and finishing with a swim...... I'm not sure why I LOVE it so much! 
.
.
I'm in the first wave so setting off from Caernarfon Castle at 8am ..... the weather looks perfect so it should be an AWESOME day.
