Felt appropriate to be to the side of the Brandenburg Gate as I never made it here during the marathon yesterday. The combination of a dodgy stomach and not quite being ready resulted in a DNF for a second year. Incredibly frustrating and embarrassing but after a big year buying a house, having a baby, and working full time I guess things get a little harder and you have to want it that little bit more. . . Athletes, listen to your coaches, if they say you're not ready it probably means you are not. I'll use the fitness I have and carry on training, will race again next month. (Not a marathon) . . Thanks to @haasruns for the support this weekend, you can go home now! #TeamTotal #berlinmarathon2018🇩🇪
Morning shakeout run done ahead of the @berlinmarathon tomorrow. Goal is to enjoy the race and just see what happens. Woooosh 🇩🇪🇩🇪🇩🇪. . . . 📸@haasruns
I think this photo sums up my Trafford 10k performance this morning. Definitely didn't feel myself, but rather now than at #berlinmarathon2018🇩🇪 in 2 weeks. . Taking the rough this the smooth. . Good to see @andybutchart back on the scene taking 2nd place this morning. 7th for me. #TeamTotal . . 📸 Peter Brown
Skipping through a field this morning being chased by Ben, again taking pictures of my arse. #berlinmarathon2018🇩🇪 #marathontraining . . . 📸 @shortsruns
The Monday morning grind. Nice easy 10 miler this morning with @shortsruns - still taking pictures of my arse when I'm not looking. Less than 5 weeks to @berlinmarathon now! 📸@shortsruns #marathontraining #2018berlinmarathon
Saturday track session this morning, finishing off with some 200s. Marathon runners need speed too! Wooosh... #TeamStorey #berlinmarathon2018🇩🇪
Friday night sunsets by @sosrehydrate - 6 weeks until Berlin Marathon... it's coming around fast! #berlinmarathon2018🇩🇪 . . . . Red sky at night. Shepard's delight.
Congrats @dewigriff10k on the win yesterday, living up to your insta handle! Ill aim to be a bit closer next time 😂 Good to be back racing after injury, onwards and upwards from here (for both of us hopefully) 📸 @pimrinkes #virginsportbritish10k #marathontraining #london
Dragon boat racing on Friday. No wonder my arms were tired on the track this morning!
Spot of afternoon tea after the long run this morning! #drinkingmyweightintea
Not a bad spot for this evening's session. Exploring new areas, it's not all about Bushy Park* 😉 . . *Although Bushy Park is pretty good #surrey #reigate #wooosh
