Thurs 30th - 30 minutes Recovery Run + 15 minutes Conditioning
We were travelling home so I didn’t do the conditioning. I just hadn’t got the time / mental fortitude that day. I did however get to run with a friend of Steve’s aunt! She’s talked to each of us about each other as we’re both running nuts so I got to meet Rachael and got for a run with her.

You know when someone says “ooh I must Introduce you to so-and-so, they’re a runner too - you could run together” and then it never happens? Well this time it actually happened. Thanks to Aunty Carol I got to real-life meet @running_is_my_therapy and have a lovely run around Great Notley and Rayne (Essex). I love how running brings new friends and new places. Thankyou to Rachael for a great route and for great company. It was so nice to have a natter and not to have to think about where we were going. Maybe I’ll be back for Halstead marathon 😉 And So our mini holiday comes to an end and back to the London streets for tomorrow’s threshold session. •• • • #blandontherun #WeGoAgain #thelongroadback #fullpotential #run #running #runner #worlderunners #beatyesterday #thismumruns #runningheroes #womensrunninguk #nevernotrunning #instarunners #ukrunchat #motherrunner #igrunners #runnerscommunity #marathon #womensrunning #YourRuns #christiansinsport #runhappy #runitfast #runnersofinstagram #runmummyrun #teamrealbuzz #werunfar #motherrunnerchat 🏃♂️road to @harrowhalf , @limassolmarathon @londonmarathon

Didn’t quite pan out - Mr B and I had planned to do the run with MiniB in the buggy to get him used to it some more before Harrow half but the small boy complained part way around so we had to pause, then restart and then cut short and get him home to bed.

All the Blands on the run yesterday - post work 6 miles with the boys. MiniB complained at 4 miles in, so we cut it short and headed home. He was just super tired I think as we did go later than normal. he then slept through the night for the first time in ages! Win. So, not quite the scheduled easy 60 but totally worth it to be with the boys. Hoping MiniB is not going to start disliking the running buggy and it was just a blip. Mr B is still@holding out hope that he had run @harrowhalf With the buggy though his training has been intermittent due to calf and glute issues. Thankfully the magic @hannahsportsm Has been doing her thing and it’s improved a lot •• • • #blandontherun #WeGoAgain #thelongroadback #fullpotential #run #running #runner #worlderunners #buggyrun #thismumruns #runningheroes #womensrunninguk #buggysquad #instarunners #ukrunchat #motherrunner #igrunners #runnerscommunity #thule #womensrunning #YourRuns #christiansinsport #runhappy #runitfast #runnersofinstagram #runmummyrun #teamrealbuzz #werunfar #motherrunnerchat 🏃♂️road to @harrowhalf , @limassolmarathon @londonmarathon
