This is me today. Running is my life. Everything is planned around my runs. Having to rest is taking it's toll now. I'm so desperate to get back out there. However, my leg no longer hurts from just walking so there's definitely improvement! I'm hoping I'll be pain free and out running again in the next day or two. Looking on the bright side, it's pouring with rain today so at least I can sit in the warm and dry with a hot cup of tea 😊

So after a busy day yesterday with the new puppy and only 4 hours sleep, I still managed to complete the Tatton Park 10K with a reasonable time πŸ™ˆ first race of 2018 and I'm officially pooped! πŸ˜‚ happy sunday everyone πŸƒπŸ’ͺ🐢#therunningbug #running #fitbit #thisgirlcanrun #runninggirl #runningaddict #rungirl #run #instafitness #fitbitfam #fitbitcharge2 #runnersproblems #runningmystressaway #fitnotskinny #runfast #runner #marathon #marathontraining #ukrunchat #2018goals #mapmyrun #justwanttorun #runthroughuk #Tattonpark10K #sundayrun #Sundayrunday #newpuppy #minaturedachshund

Not how I expected 2018 to start πŸ™ˆπŸ˜£
BUT I've been given permission to try a small off-road run tomorrow and, instead of chomping at the bit, I'm bricking it! Good luck handling me in the morning @mrspowell2910, please don't let me do anything stupid!πŸ˜‚

This shockingly unattractive picture sums up today's run 😞 Yesterday's speed work has killed my right shin. Frustrating because I felt fine yesterday. Had there been any warning I would have eased off. So as a result I had to shuffle my way through this one slower than I could walk on a normal day. To add insult to injury, the minibeast kept shouting "go!" as if I wasn't moving! Never realised how painful shin splints could be. This running streak has really highlighted the importance of rest days for me. I'm not sure a running streak and half marathon training really makes a great combination. I have a ten mile road race coming up very soon, and of course my first half marathon in March. The last thing I want to do is jeopardise those, so for now, I'm listening to my body and will be taking things gently. Very short, slow jogs for now until my leg improves. I'm still determined to complete RED January, but my monthly mileage might take a knock. Small price to pay for healthy, enjoyable running. I'll be back to normal in no time 😊

Yup- got a bit carried away when foam rolling last night. Feeling pretty bruised this morning but my knee isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Fingers crossed 🀞 #foamrolling #injury #knee #justwanttorun

Claire M (@claire.m.runs)

Was too good to be true thinking I could run. Turns out β€˜The Knee’ is still bad. I didn’t do anything in particular but look like it’s going to take some work to get rid of it. I foam rolled the shiz out of it when I got in! Man that’s a workout in itself! Now where’s the ice..... Feck sake. #runner #injury #kneepain #justwanttorun

When all you want is to go outside and play, but you're still on restriction.

Off the plane and straight to physio to find out how backwards my rehab has gone, and now banned from any exercise or rehab for the week 😭even walking is stuffing me up now, qualifying for Worlds is looking even harder than before 😒 #overit #justwanttorun #oratleastride #17monthsandcounting #rehab #injury #trilife #triathlete #swimbikerun

Nice 9.6K on this frosty morning! ❄️ did a bit of looping just to get a few more Kilometres in! Even had the absolute pleasure of running with my sister and cousin!

Plantar fasciitis can do one now 😫 Will be rolling my feet on a frozen bottle of water and stretching for the next hour or so. Not running didn’t help so I may as well just run given that I’ll be in pain anyways! Rocking β€œMy little pony” pjs! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸ™ˆ

January 3rd: Finally breaking in my new running shoes! Despite my best efforts my car wouldn’t start in the cold yesterday. The new battery arrives next Friday πŸ™„ #carsharing #withhubby #newshoes #littlethingsmakesmehappy #justwanttorun

Pretty much sums up the last 24 hrs. .
The flu has totally kicked my butt.

For sure not the way I had planned to start the new year... especially with a race a few weeks away ☹️. .
2018 I’m still comin for you, I’m just off to a slow start!

Looking back at 2017 πŸ™ˆ my goal for 2017 was to earn a medal a monthπŸŽ–οΈand that i did!! 12 months, 15 races and some very unflattering finishers pictures πŸ˜‰ but I'm so proud of myself. I feel like I've really achieved something this year πŸ€— I said I wasn't going to do it again, but guess what, I totally am! Goal for 2018..... a medal a month! And I've got some PB's to smash!
