Discover jimgandon's Instagram RELAXED SUNNY RUN ☀️
---------------------------------------
Nice little run during my taper week, relaxed with some 80m strides to finish off. It's still very warm so I've got a bit of a sweat on. Took a look at my watch while chilling in the garden and the cheeky fucker said my training status was 'unproductive' 😳 I could very easily take offence at that ....
-------------------------------------------
Only three more sleeps until #Edinburghmarathon I can't wait. I'm kind of enjoying eating all the time, I'm doing some proper carb loading which is starting to make me feel like a right fat fuck .... but hey eating guilt free is fine by me!! 🥐🍞🧀🍗🍖🍕🍔🍟🥙🍔🌭
--------------------------------------------
Coach gave me my final pep talk this week, he knows I struggle on the last miles and he pointed out that as I had never thrown up at the end of a race or been put on a drip then I had more available on the tank ..... so essentially I just need to try fucking harder and stop whinging ..... So I'm ready to Man the fuck Up and get it done!!! 💪🏼💪🏼🏃🏼🏃🏼 #emf2017 #garmin #manthefuckup #marathontraining #fitness #fitfam  #goals #fit #fitlife #healthy #fitness #instagood #runner #runningman #instarun #motivation  #runnershigh  #igrunnners #runnerscommunity #marathon #igers #instamood #ukrunning #nevernotrunning #runners  #runnersofinstagram  #loverunning #fitsnap 1522676576810405222_758745862

Discover jimgandon's Instagram KIT TEST RUN 😀
---------------------------------------------
Nice easy run with some marathon pace miles mixed in. 🏃🏼🏃🏼Felt great in this wonderful weather we are enjoying ☀️ Bloody delightful 🙌🏼
Also took the opportunity to give Sunday's race kit a run out! Orange and Grey for marathon No.6! I'm enjoying the sunny look and there's always an excuse to get some more Adidas into my wardrobe.😎🕺🏼
--------------------------------------------
I've been trying some carb depletion the last couple of days before I start carb loading tomorrow. I did this for Berlin and it worked quite well. Starving the body of carbs for a couple of days makes it store more when you start loading again ....... may help, may not but it certainly won't do any harm and I need all the help I can get 😀👍🏼🍗🍗🍗🍗

Discover jimgandon's Instagram MEDAL MONDAY
-------------------------------------------
My first ever marathon and in fact the first ever race of my adult life. 🙂
.
.
After deciding to get fit in 2013, I started running, still overweight and able to run only around 5k I decided to book a marathon 😜😜 Everyone that knew me thought I was completely mad and nobody believed I would do it. I trained for 8 months, just making it up as I went along and ran the race in 4.12 ...... hated it! 😏
.
.
Thought to myself I would never do another one but I did have the running bug! I went on to run lots of Half marathons that year improving all the time, I was then offered a place in #vmlm2015 ........The rest as they say is history. Today I can't imagine a life without running and I'm now less than a week away from Marathon No.6 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Discover jimgandon's Instagram 48.8 Weekly Miles ---------------------------------------------
Pretty big week of miles so close to the Marathon next week but it's been a slightly different training programme after #londonmarathon2017 four weeks ago. It was always a slightly risky strategy and one that has poled opinions but I'm happy with my decision to give it a go and just need to rest as much as possible now and see what happens next week.
-----------------------------------------
I'm even allowing myself a glass or two of Sancerre tonight, as some of my more edgy friends tell me, it's all about balance 😀🍷
CHEERS 🥂

Discover jimgandon's Instagram MARATHON TRAINING DONE!
------------------------------------------
That's the last training run before next weeks marathon complete. 💪🏼💪🏼It was meant to be at Marathon Pace and as unusual I struggled to keep my pace down. This is a bit of a problem for me as I need to ensure I set off and hold at 7.40, not go off too fast otherwise I'm going to suffer on the back miles. 😜
-------------------------------------------
Well one thing I'm sure of, I'm looking forward to running for fun again. It feels like I've constantly had a marathon to train for the last year .... I'm going to spend the summer just enjoying my running and fitness, hopefully with a BQ in my pocket 😀🙌🏼🙌🏼 #emf2017 #Edinburghmarathon #marathontraining #fitness #fitfam  #goals #fit #fitlife #healthy #fitness #instagood #runner #runningman #instarun #motivation  #runnershigh  #igrunnners #runnerscommunity #marathon #igers #instamood #ukrunning #nevernotrunning #runners  #runnersofinstagram  #loverunning #fitsnap 1519502425035455294_758745862

Discover jimgandon's Instagram Jim Vs Mountain 😀
#flashbackfriday to September 2016 when I took part in Man Vs Mountain. One of my favourite ever events, so much fun on a bleak and rainy day in Snowdonia. 😀💪🏼🌧🌪
It's a 22 mile race from Caernarfon Castle up Snowdon then back down to Llanberis then up the vertical mile to the old mines and down again, taking in various water obstacles with a total ascent of 5055ft. 😅🏔🏔💦💦
It's was fucking awesome, so challenging yet so much fun. I had a grin on my face from start to finish. I came in 90th out of around 1500 so hoping to do get a bit nearer the top when I take it on again this year 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼

Discover jimgandon's Instagram A GREAT CAUSE
--------------------------------------------
The guys at Prostate Cancer UK have been amazing in giving me a place in the Edinburgh marathon. They also gave me my place in Berlin last year. I originally agreed to run Berlin as my best friend asked me to run as he wanted to run his first marathon for Prostate Cancer UK. His father died the year before from Prostate Cancer so this meant a great deal to him and I was very happy to support both his challenge and raise some money for a great cause at the same time.
-------------------------------------------
This time round, PCUK have done me a huge favour by assisting me to achieve my goals of a BQ time ... I would love to raise as much as I can. Any support would be amazing, the link is in my bio ❤️❤️❤️

Had a switchero with my race plan so long run tomorrow and today just went out for a 'see how I feel' run with my little Libby in support on her bike. 🙂❤️🚴🏼‍♀️🏃🏼
I still feel a little tired even after a long lie in my own bed so didn't feel my strongest on the run but I thoroughly enjoyed it. The sunshine made it so much more enjoyable.☀️😀

Only a fortnight until I smash out another marathon PB at Edinburgh..... sub 3.25 not bad for a guy that never ran anything other than a tab in the bar until I was 40 😎🍺🍾🍸🥂 The only cravin' was ravin' n' misbehavin' 😜 Now I'm cravin' running , not ravin' but maybe still some misbehavin' 😉 Happy Fuckin' Sunday my fit friends 🙌🏼

MARATHON PACE RUN -------------------------------------------- Had a switchero with my race plan so long run tomorrow and today just went out for a 'see how I feel' run with my little Libby in support on her bike. 🙂❤️🚴🏼‍♀️🏃🏼 I still feel a little tired even after a long lie in my own bed so didn't feel my strongest on the run but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

---------------------------------------------
I'm not going to lie, that was tough! Way too tough, this is what happens when training and working collide and crash.🤔 I've been on the road and in hotels all week, haven't had one decent nights sleep and the fatigue is now very obvious 😴 ---------------------------------------------
Today was meant to be 10 miles but I'd cut it short anyway and went for #parkrunuk Distance as working again today but even 5k felt hard. Tomorrow was my mega long run (over marathon distance) but think I need to push it along a day and take Monday as long run day to try and catch up on rest tomorrow.👍🏼
--------------------------------------------
I'm not going to complain, great being busy and blessed to have some time to run 😀 I guess I'm getting better at understanding my body and what is affecting my training. Two weeks to go until Edinburgh, I want to get it right, it's kind of a big deal for me 😉

Discover jimgandon's Instagram #throwbackthursday to a cold winter run in Cambridge this year with @linzey08 
A favourite run for me, I rarely run with anyone as I enjoy the solitude while running. Running with Linzey on a lovely route just flew past and 17 miles felt like 3 as we chatted away the whole route. ❤️
---------------------------------------------
So many amazing people in the #runningcommunity that inspire me and I have been lucky enough to meet. Just one of the many reasons that Running has had the most amazingly positive impact on my life, to think that I might inspire the odd person too makes me feel incredibly proud. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
---------------------------------------------
Today's thought in support of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain' 😌🕺🏼

Discover jimgandon's Instagram TEMPO 10k 🙂
----------------------------------------------
Plans changed today so had a few extra hours before heading out to client visits for the week .... used the extra time to relax and run ..... then went slightly off schedule again, sorry coach! My 35 minute steady run turned into a 45 minute tempo run! I blame my Red Outfit 😈 All red, even put my Red #adidas #ultraboost ST's on complete with #berlinmarathon timing chip 😀🙌🏼 Sometimes you just need to be a bit fucking naughty .... today's one of those kinda days 😉Felt good too, big week of training this week before hitting a taper again .... Push Push Push .... got to keep moving forwards 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
---------------------------------------------
In support of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek I'm going to give a little quote on my posts this week .... Quote for today is one that we all need to remind ourselves of now and again "Do not believe the things you tell yourself when you are sad and alone" 😌❤️
