Todays 7.5miles was about two minutes slower than my training plan suggests (1hr 18). I probably shouldnt have gone as lunch made me sick 😷 my colleagues got to see how well I chew my food 😂😁 Can u guess what I thought of this gel??! its NASTY 🤣 I put it inside my water bottle after tasting it on its own and it was much better. I got this at a race I did a looong time ago and a friend from work that cycles recommended this brand. My stomach felt good so i may buy more! Loving my @karrimor_uk shoes!! A lil heavy at times but nothing aches so i love them😍😍 marathontraining londonmarathon2018 teamsense wintertraining runnerscommunity runnersofinstagram womenrunning blackgirlsruntoo blackgirlsrun ablackgirlrunning loverunning runhappy whyirun fitnessjourney halfmarathontraining halfmarathon loverunning lovetorun runchat runnersofinstagram morningrun ukrunchat womenrunners womensrunningcommunity runlikeagirl runnersofig runlondon roadrunning

Yay! Ya girl got new shoes! My freeruns @Nike wont last all the mileage. I wanted running shoes so they scanned my feet @sportsdirect and said i had a low arch?! So the shoes i could select where limited. I had to get these off brand Karrimor shoes I hope they are comfortable and supportive. As they are a brand im not used to I made sure they where bright and obviously for running!

Yesterday's ten mile was rough. So rough the only good thing about it was that I completed the distance. I spent so much time wishing one of my friends would drive past and offer me a lift 😄😂😂 I think I should try running more in the morning so I'll endeavour to run on sunday after breakfast maybe 3/5 and start trying to simulate the marathon morning stomach as much as possible. 🏃🏾‍♀️londonmarathon2018 teamsense marathontraining runningproblems wintertraining womenrunning blackgirlsruntoo blackgirlsrun inspiringwomenrunners loverunning whyirun fitnessjourney halfmarathontraining halfmarathon loverunning lovetorun runchat morningrun ukrunchat runlondon roadrunning womenrunning runningforweightloss

willrunforfood This is the reason I ran 6.5miles today. I ran to the supermarket and back purely because i wanted to pick these up. I tried one on the way back. They taste like the centre of jelly babies😁 and idk if it was this or the spicy beans I had before i left but something tore my stomach up. I'll try these again on my next long run. Schedules says friday but lol I doubt.

Today was tadworth10 it was two 5mile laps. The race route was full of nice scenery and lots of down hills. There was so much mud!!! I enjoyed miles 3 to 6 and then 7-10. It was a friendly race and was nice to meet you a @tonyshales. I got a 10mile PB!! 😄😄😄 I finished in 1:37:01 (9:42 per mile) taking just over 10minutes off of my last 10miler at Brighton so I'm very happy! I also beat the time I was hoping for on my previous post. I'll be buying another set of running shoes this week.

🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭HAPPY NEW YEAR🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭 deardiary last run of operunsaccra 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭 the first of 2018 and it was a struggle! My cousin took pictures of me screaming as my alarm went off and as I put my leggings on the wrong way. I 'ran' 5 miles in 90°😥. I have been really low on energy i think its because I haven't met my protien goals and whilst the food here is similar to nigeria (im Nigerian) its so different. We have also had a lot of late nights and early starts so we can do everything on our itinerary✴✴✴ Accra was a pleasure and now back to run London. I have a 10miler on sunday and may do a 5mile in the interim.. marathontraining runnersofgh rungh runaccra wintertraining runnerscommunity runnersofinstagram womenrunning thisgirlcan blackgirlsruntoo ablackgirlrunning loverunning dailyworkout runhappy whyirun fitnessjourney halfmarathontraining halfmarathon loverunning lovetorun runchat runnersofinstagram morningrun ukrunchat womenrunners thisgirlcan runlikeagirl runnersofig runlondon roadrunning wintertraining runnerscommunity runnersofinstagram womenrunning runningforweightloss

operunsaccra 84°🔥🔥🔥 today I ran just under 8k I was able to find a loop around the hotel and it ended up being short of a 5k. I then did another 1.5(3km) out and back. I'll do a loop twice before leaving to makeup for short falls. The heat makes you run different! 😅 so glad I went and the area around the hotel is beautiful! marathontraining traininginaccra runningproblems wintertraining runnerscommunity runnersofinstagram womenrunning thisgirlcan blackgirlsrun ablackgirlrunning loverunning runhappy whyirun fitnessjourney loverunning lovetorun runchat runnersofinstagram morningrun ukrunchat womenrunners womensrunningcommunity thisgirlcan runaccra roadrunning womenrunning runningforweightloss
