#flashbackfriday to the last time I ran. Well, sort of ran. Over two whole months ago. I hobbled round the whole 10K, although I did indulge myself in something vaguely resembling a (very limpy) sprint finish 🏁 Arguably it was a pretty stupid thing to do to even attempt this event at the time, but I’d had my heart set on it for so long and I don’t regret waddling round; I savoured every single second of it πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ . Honestly I thought I’d only be out for about a 2-4 weeks max, but here I am 9 weeks later (and 11 weeks since I first got injured) πŸ€• . Now I’m just patiently waiting for my MRI results, which should hopefully come next week 🀞🏻 and then I’ll have to make some decisions about where I go from here... πŸ€” . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #run #runner #running #ukrunchat #runthroughuk #adidas #cityruns #10K #sprintfinish #finishline #focus #gameface #injuredrunner #hobbling #stressfracture #runstrong #runlikeagirl #crosstraining #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #fbf #instafit #thisgirlcan #freeletics #bbg #teamenertor #prettyathletic #comebackstronger @enertorglobal @enertorphysio @prettyathletic @cityrunsldn @adidasrunning at Fulham

Being a good human after last night’s spin class and stretching my hips out, lizard style πŸ¦ŽπŸ§˜πŸ»β€β™€οΈ This is still one of my all-time favourite stretches, where it feels so good partly because it kinda feels not-so-good πŸ˜†πŸ”₯ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #runnernotrunning #yoga #yogaforrunners #yogaforcyclists #hipopener #lizardpose #hipsdontlie #sobadbutsogood #stretch #stretchitout #instayoga #yogini #yogisofinstagram #spin #spinclass #bbg #freeletics #sweat #crosstraining #runstrong #runlikeagirl #comebackstronger #workoutwednesday #tbt #throwbackthursday #instafit #gymlife #teamenertor #prettyathletic @enertorglobal @enertorphysio @prettyathletic at London, United Kingdom

First up - 1 hour tempo spin class which can only be described as SAVAGE πŸ”₯πŸ₯΅πŸ’¦ Followed by 45 mins of an actual proper dedicated yoga practice for the first time in months - overriding feeling: β€œOh Christ, my hips!” πŸ˜΅πŸ§˜πŸ»β€β™€οΈ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #runnernotrunning #injuredrunner #crosstraining #doubleworkout #run #runner #running #tempo #bike #spinclass #spin #yoga #stretch #mobility #hips #hipopeners #ukrunchat #instayoga #yogisofinstagram #comebackstronger #trainhard #workforit #thisgirlcan #sweat #bbg #freeletics #gymlife #instafit #teamenertor #prettyathletic @enertorglobal @enertorphysio @prettyathletic at London, United Kingdom

When you do your first β€œrun” back - 10 min of 60-90s easy/60s walk - and your @garminuk tells you this 🀣 . Physio had said I could try an easy run/walk to feel things out. I was going to wait until after my MRI next week to try, but there was a dreadmill in the hotel so I thought I’d give it a tentative go... I’ll be honest I was really scared it was STILL going to hurt, but I *think* it was fine the whole time πŸ€” . I’ll see how it feels over the next day or so to give my final verdict but all I can say is that, after 2.5months of almost no running, it felt good just to have a little stretch of the legs πŸ˜…πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ . . . . . . . . . . #run #runner #running #ukrunchat #runthroughuk #injuredrunner #injurycomeback #stressfracture #thecomebackison #comebackstronger #recovery #dreadmill #runstrong #runlikeagirl #intervals #itsbeenawhile #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #womensrunning #womensrunninguk #runningcommunity #treadmill #teamenertor @enertorglobal @enertorphysio @prettyathletic at Loughborough University

Put my mate @gregrusedski1 β€˜s tips for my serve into action for the first time today, following on from this masterclass way back in October. Turns out his advice actually bloody works πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‚ Served the best I ever have done and, as an added bonus, I also managed to volleys off the strings instead of the frame too 🎾πŸ”₯πŸ˜‚ I can’t believe how well I was hitting the ball today, given that it was only the second time I’ve played since April 2018 - I miss this sport so much! πŸŽΎπŸ’– . On the flip side, I now also have tennis blisters on top of rowing blisters too πŸ˜‚πŸ€• . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #tennis #tbt #throwbackthursday #serve #ace #masterclass #gregrusedski #bestmate #surprisedmyself #instatennis #crosstraining #gamesetmatch #nailedit #run #runner #running #ukrunchat #tennisskirt #tennisserve #boom #runstrong #runlikeagirl #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #instafit #tennisgirl #thisgirlcan #dowhatyoulove #love #teamenertor @enertorglobal @enertorphysio at Kent, Kent, United Kingdom

Burning off some of yesterday’s indulgence with a quick cross country bike ride (to the pub 😳🍻) . First time riding an actual proper bike outdoors in what must be about 10 years, if not longer. Dead happy to have not fallen off sideways in the big field of very big cows πŸ„πŸ„ The fact I got a cycling QOM on @strava is frankly laughable though πŸ˜‚πŸš΅πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ‘‘ .

I hope you have the loveliest of days, that Santa has been kind, and that those of you lucky enough to be parkrunning have a great run - give it some extra oomph on the sprint finish for me πŸ˜‰ .
