Turkey Time


This is the first post I’ve done on my phone, so I’m sorry now if it sounds like it was written by an 8 year old.

SB and I are still in Turkey. It’s been quite the chore getting up, eating, lying by the pool, eating, more pool, more food and a smattering of cocktails throughout the day. I promise I’ll stop now in case you don’t come back!!

We went for a run two days ago, and it was the first time I’d ran since the GNR last week. My knee started to hurt immediately and I was gutted! I did 4k before stopping.

I reckon this means some serious rest/stretching before I can do any long distance. So whilst tanning covering myself in factor 30 I have been thinking about my goals for the Autumn now that my two big events are done. Here’s what’s on the list so far:

– get back into pole!! It’s taken a back seat since the comp & since my running events. I can feel a new routine just bubbling away & in October I’m going to unleash it!

– get my knee better :( beyond stretching, foam rolling & spending £££ with my physio, there’s no plan. Anyone got any ideas?

– start doing speed work and drills into Winter. Then next year hopefully I’ll be in a better condition for my halves & can smash the time I was aiming for this year

– flex it up!! I have splits two ways, but not my left leg. And not without warming up! By the end of the year I WILL have them looking flat & fabulous all ways!!

Has anyone else re-assessed their goals now that 2013 is drawing to a close? What were your new year resolutions? Are you on track?

Here are some pics of our Turkey run.

  1. Hey!! Lucky you sunning yourself! Very envious. :)
    Sorry to hear about your leg…..sounds like you need to get it looked at? Especially if sore straight away. Most knee and ITB issues come from hip / glute imbalances so might be good to go to a physio? I can send you the exercises I do?

    Good idea to look at goals – I’ll do the same after Melbourne!
