You could probably thank Fleetwood Mac for the title of this blog. I was bopping along in the car one day, changed the words of ‘You Can Go Your Own Way’ and ta da, ended up with the title of this blog. Partly music inspired and partly inspired by my running and about running how I want to run and not how other people, magazines, forums tell me. If a coach’s advice works for me or I’m enjoying a particular way of running and training, then why not? Running is an individual activity and what works for me might not necessarily work for you. The main thing this blog is about is THE LOVE OF RUNNING. Running slow, running fast, running short, running long. If you run you are a runner, just enjoy it.
I’m a mum of 2, a physiotherapist and a runner. These things aren’t necessarily related but sometimes they collide. I’m a physiotherapist with over ten years experience in treating people with injuries from activities such as running. You’d think this would make me invincible to injury. It doesn’t. I’m just as stubborn and competitive as all you other runners.
I’ve been running since I was eleven. I love track, I love road and I (weirdly) love cross country. I completed my first marathon in Edinburgh in 2012 and after going to see the Olympics have been inspired to get back on the track. I’m probably too old for it but like I said, I’m stubborn. And I’ve bought spikes now so I have to use them.
Stay tuned for my marathon training journey as I prepare for the 2014 London Marathon (injury allowing).
