We kicked off this year’s 12 in 12 challenge with the #fourvillageshalfmarathon today. The 12 in 12 challenge is 12 half marathons across the year.
.
Many of you may know that I have had some health issues over the past few weeks, starting with a bout of depression before Christmas. Since then I have been diagnosed with Epilepsy, it came out of the blue and to be honest I am still coming to terms with it. The seizures started a few weeks ago and although I am on medication, I still get the odd absence seizure especially when I am tired.
.
I was in hospital last week with a number of these seizures and my medications were increased, the Neurologist said that I was able to attempt the run this week as long as I have someone with me and stop if there is a problem. Fortunately Gayle is a doctor and we always run together.
.
Unfortunately I could not compete the half-marathon!! I tried my best but with the cold weather and not having a great night sleep, I had a couple of absence seizures at the 9.6km mark and we felt that to carry on would cause the seizures to increase and may cause other problems.
.
It was with a heavy heart that I stopped but I think on reflection it was the best thing to do. It’s my first DNF in a race, but I don’t feel ashamed about it, Gayle has said that it takes a lot of guts to make the decision and pull out of a race and the reason to do so far outweighed the reasons to carry on.
.
I went to one of the marshalls who looked after me until I could be collected. I insisted that Gayle complete the race, which she did. She is a complete running machine and I am very proud of her.
.
So, I just need to get these seizures settled down for the rest of the year and I need to catch up with another half-marathon so I can say I have done the 12.

Træningssamling hos coach #kristinaextremerunning. Sjovt, hyggeligt, inspirerende og lidt hårdt. 😉

Seguindo o nosso colega e parceiro @diogoferreirafit, é sempre importante relembrar da onde viemos e o que fazemos até aqui para se manter no "jogo"

Então, não perde o foco e o objetivo, porque amanhã começa tudo novamente

Uma maravilhosa semana para todos!

Vamo que vamo .
Chama que é Nóis
🏃‍♀️ Voilà ce qui me permet de me ressourcer : la nature, la forêt 🌳 la montagne 🏔
Pour moi, ça passe par le Trail, mais aussi la rando.
Je suis tombée sur ce splendide chêne à une croisée de sentiers. Il est immense, sublime, un ancien sage. Je me suis sentie toute petite face à lui, j'ai eu envie de l'enlacer. C'est décidé il sera mon Ent, mon arbre 🌳 repère dans ma forêt de Fangorn.
Et au passage, quelques RP qui font du bien 😊
Bon Dimanche à tous et prenez soin de vous. 🏃🏼‍♀️ #trail #trailrunning #trailrun #running #runninggirl #runningaddict #instarun

Hello 13.1. It’s been a while! Long run this afternoon on the dreadmill. This is the longest run I’ve done on a treadmill and it was not glorious. I definitely prefer my longer runs outdoors. But something was glorious today, my time: 1hr 52min 32sec. 8:30 average pace. I also found myself not all that tired afterwards with this effort. It was a hot box in the gym today too. Now to just put this kind of effort into a race the spring. Mind over matter. It can be done. Also: not going to sell my vaporflys, sorry folks 😂

Tudo tem começo e meio. O fim só existe para quem não percebe o recomeço.

I’m 112 lbs (give or take), which means nothing, except it seems I’m a bit at a loss to have enough weight to push into slush and snow. I just spin out. My pace times since it snowed have been a good 30-60+ seconds per km or more. Ouch! It’s good leg workout, but winter has been gettin’ me down. So this weekend was just was this girl needed. Mild temps and PAVEMENT! 😍💕 I’ve been able to RUN! Pace times that I haven’t seen since early fall. Not that I’m fast or anything. But still. Does feel good to be reminded, it’s not me, but you, winter.

I like running outside when I get bored of the treadmill or there’s no treadmill to run on, this way I get to know my neighborhood and know how far I can run, especially now since this is a new neighborhood
