As any of the ladies from the Lancaster Women's Running Group will tell you, I love hills! The feeling I get when hill running is great, you get all the good feelings you get when running on the flat but multiplied. I get a real buzz from it! You can almost feel the strength in [...]
We had a lovely run this morning along the river around Crook O Lune. We were joined by 2 herds of cows and a herd of sheep (is that the right term for sheep?). We had a good laugh, chatted about food and generally had a nice time and a good run. Most of this run is on grass so feels lovely on the legs.
My first training run was 10 miles out and back along Morecambe Promenade. The weather was not great and after a tough session (training not drinking!) the night before my legs were not playing ball. I eventually finished feeling windswept and carbohydrate deficient. Note to self for next time, do not do hard sessions a few hours before hard runs with just a jacket potato and a few hours sleep in between!
This run was lovely and scenic, taking in the views of Lancaster and the coast line. Starting at the Premier Inn on Caton Road in Lancaster this was a hilly run in some parts but a lovely downhill track towards the end. It was a hot day for running but everyone took water and we took our time on the hilly sections.

I love to run, it is my passion. I have loved running since the first ever run in training for the Race for Life in 2005. At that point I thought 'I will never be able to run'. Now I can't stop! So why do we run? Running wakes me up and starts my day off or winds me down from a difficult day. It makes me feel alive, and even if I am tired and don't feel like getting out of the door I am always glad I did. So is it the fact that I run races that makes me a runner? Or that I sometimes run with a club? No I think it is the fact that I get out there and do it, come rain or shine and the fact that I enjoy and choose to do it that makes me a runner. It does not matter how fast you run, how far or how often. I don't like the word 'jogger'. You either run or you don't. You are runner from the first time you lace up your running shoes.
As a keen runner I understand the benefits of regular massage. I am a qualified massage therapist and am offering relaxation and deep tissue massage in a treatment room on Bridge Road, Greaves, Lancaster. Your legs will feel refreshed and rejuvinated, perfect for your next run. As a trained nurse I understand how the body works and which muscles are prone to tightness and stress. I go into more detail about the effects of massage on different body systems in the 'Massage, the benefits' section.
Half marathons are a very popular choice of distance for many runners. They feel pretty special, running 13.1 miles is more than many people can do, but they don't take the same comittment as full marathons. There are many events around the country, one of my favourites being The Shell Four villages half marathon in Helsby. It is a very picturesque route around the local villages (hence the name). It gets booked up very early and takes place in January, well worth a trip out to burn off your Christmas indulgences. This post gives some advice on how to train for a half marathon in such a way that you can get the best out of yourself without injury.
