Sticking to foot and hip physio once a day and then extra feet if I can! :) no rush or pressure or tension!
Pain jumping around as usual! Pain mainly in the right foot and weird the side of my left calf- this only came after the run though - be mindful and strong it will be okay !! STAY STRONG <3 !

ahr:161 max:186 shoes: HOKA TRAIL SHOES

FAB run around Athurs Seat and Portobello today! What a beginning to move into the next phase of training! <3
I ran down to dynamic earth and forgot my keys so I had to run back whoops! Then I ran a bizarre route to Portobello and then back on the main road - but felt fab in the legs! Sore on the hills but powered through the decent amount of climb! All about exploring the runs now and I’m excited to do so!
Best thing is that my feet and hips were great - awareness but complete copeable presence which is fab. Let’s do this! ❤️

LOVELY morning sunrise run around Arthur's Seat - I was a little worried with how my right arch would feel... it was a little sore but held up fine. My daily exercises have been doing it some real good.
I just love running <3 It is incredible to just go out for a 8km run, go at a good pace and feel really good for it.
You got this <3.

Ms : Done
Es : -
Steps :
Physio : didn’t do it today - felt very rushed so need to start prepping so I can get it in :) also did an S/C session!

Right foot arch super sore today - just keeping aware of it! I jogged to the gym and I can run on it without form change or severe pain - it’s just present and in need of loads of love <3
Also I didn’t commit to yoga / physio enough today -
You can do it all so clear the restriction fear and start planning it in from tommorow - also a new S/C session from tommorow! :)

A little bit of clearing and healing needed today <3

Gym Bike 40:00 [2] 11.0 km (3:38 / km)

VERY easy spin out on the legs today just to get movement - I am also cycling round town a bit more which is fab training without realising! Just need to chill with the training for a little while now - more emotionally than physically - just training with EASE not fear. Clearing pain when it comes up... and loving every moment of the step <3 you got this!

Tuesday Sep 17 #


Woke up to rolling over in bed and twinging my left pelvis/pubic bone weirdly - noting for awareness but it truly feels fine! Remember from now to move the body with ease and relaxation! There is no rush, tension or pressure! Faith and freedom <3

8 AM

Cycling race 2:52:00 [3] 52.6 km (3:16 / km) +387m 3:09 / km
ahr:129 max:173

SECTION 3 Coast to Coast: 50km XC and road bike from Fort Augustus to Fort William
Lovely morning leg spin! I really enjoyed this section. It was so much flatter overall and much better conditions. I still find XC a little scary at times which makes it more difficult - I am strong on the hills but lose a little confidence on the downhill sections! The road section was awesome - felt great!
11 AM

Running race 3:00:00 [4] 20.2 km (8:55 / km) +655m 7:40 / km
ahr:147 max:191 shoes: HOKA TRAIL SHOES

SECTION 4 Coast to Coast: Mountain Run from Fort William to Isles of Glencoe
Another holy shit moment - this was CHALLENGING! There was just SO much climbing to do so running for all of it would have been impossible - along with the extremely tough terrain - made worse by yesterday’s awful weather conditions! We ran most of the middle section and it was great - I fell pretty early on and my right foot felt a little dodgy for the rest of the run but I knew I would finish it so it will be fine. I will need to work on the feet every day for the next few weeks to sort them out!
The descent was even trickier and I fell over 15 times! It was hilarous everyone was slipping and sliding all over the place! But getting down to the road was great for a last speedy km before the kayak! What an achievement!
Hips were awesome throughout - just aware of the feet/more right foot arch now!
3 PM

Kayaking race (CHANGE TO KAYAK) 16:00 [2] 1.7 km (9:25 / km) +6m 9:15 / km
ahr:138 max:162

SECTION 5 Coast to Coast: Kayak across Isle of Glencoe
So fun to end the race! A short kayak stretch to the finish line! It was gorgeous and sunny and myself and my body couldn’t wait to finish after two days of hard work!
