Another well organised event by @runthroughuk , but I can’t help being disappointed with myself. It’s been a long time since I ran over an hour for a 10K, and since achieving a 10K PB in June of under 56 minutes, taking an hour and five minutes to do the same distance feels like a let down. The odds were stacked against me. It was already too hot before I even started. Obviously badminton three days in a row after having not played for a year, and three hard 5k runs in a row are not conducive to successful races for me. Eating copious amounts of ice cream, drinking wine everyday, and three course meals didn’t help either. We got home from Center Parcs quite late, so no time for my traditional pre-race burger and glass of red wine, which normally helps me run fast the next day. And to top it off, having to run up THAT hill 3 times with tight calves was a killer. Oh well, not every race can be a PB, and at least I’ve added the mileage to my totals! Official results 01:04:32, 197/276 overall, 8/16 in age category, and 66/118 female. #runthroughuk #run #running #runnergirl #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #august2019 #summer2019 #runnersofinstagram #runnerslife #womensrunning #runnersworld #runlikeagirl #ukrunchat #10k #10km #10kmrun #6miles #1000km2019challenge #greenwichpark #greenwich #igerslondon #teacherswhorun #landmarksandbeyond #project365_2019 #365emmaclark2019

☀️💦🏃‍♀️18 MILES in unrelenting sunshine and blistering heat, OWNED IT MATE 💪🏻 With a cheeky @runthroughuk 10km as a warmup 🙈 . In 5 weeks time I'll be running Berlin marathon for @literacy_trust PLEASE check the link in my bio and sponsor me if you can 🙏🏻 The charity does exceptional work to improve the prospects of disadvantaged children through literacy and education 📚💜 They're a small charity that changes the lives of so many people and for that they deserve all the support they can get 📖 . I crossed the finish line in last place at Greenwich Park this morning (god I hate that hill), but I then went on to run 12 miles home so swings and roundabouts I guess? 🤷🏻‍♀️😁 . I won't lie I wanted to be faster. But I had to finish the 10km with plenty of juice left in the tank, and I absolutely could not have done any more in that heat. God I miss winter running. I was so grumpy in the first 6 miles. I knew I was last from about 1.5 miles in and although I'm kinda used to that, I was a bit worried about how far behind I'd end up. The heat and hills played games with my mind and I was completely ready to call it quits after 6.2. But then I sat down with @cfointhecity @shellie0055 and @newfoundrunner for 10 mins before heading off again and just chatting to them brought my spirits right back up ❤️ Thank you girls. 🙏🏻 . On the plus side my shin only hurt a little bit for the first 10 miles and then so many other things hurt that I forgot about it 🙈🤣 And am I glad I didn't bail on those 12 miles home? Abso-friekin-lutely 🎉 time to wallow in all of the Epsom salts, eat all of the pizza, and watch all of the Netflix. Happy bank holiday! 🙌🏻 . @jo_jo_runs I thought of you a lot out there today. Every one of those miles was for you 💜 . . . #marathontraining #marathoner #longrun #summerrunning #itwasntfastbutitwasdone #runthroughuk #letsdothis #thisgirlcan #thisgirlcanrun #inspiringwomenrunners #fitness #motivation #couchto5k #slowrunner #runningcommunity #ukrunchat #runnersofinstagram #race #berlinmarathon

Oh how birthday celebrations have changed!! The absolute best way to celebrate a birthday, when a group of your friends and family agree to sign up to do a 5km. The perfect setting when @runthroughuk have a run in Greenwich followed by a delightful brunch. So proud of the ones who absolutely smashed doing their first 5km race and those speeding round to try and catch me after getting there slightly late. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my birthday with the people who have supported and cheered me on with every crazy adventure I have taken on over the past year. Let’s see what the next year holds in store for me, I am sure many more crazy adventures. #run #runthroughuk #friendswhorun #birthdayrunner #birthdayrun #halfmarathontraining #runlondon #royalparksrunning #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #running #runner #inspiringwomenrunners #thisgirlcanuk #thisgirlcanrun #runforfun #anotheryearolder
