So you've been approved to run, but have no idea where to start??? Depending how long you've been out of the game, you'll find that less is more to begin with! ⁠ ⁠ Here's a session to get you started...⁠ ⁠ 🤸‍♂️Warm up: 40s each- repeat 2x⁠ * Walking lunges⁠ * Mini squats⁠ * Straight leg toe touches⁠ * inchworm walkouts ⁠ * frog squats ⁠ ⁠ 🏃‍♀️⁠ - Jog one minute, walk one minute, repeat 6-10x at an easy pace. ⁠ - After your last rep, walk and recover as long as you need, then run at an easy pace, as long as you can. Record your time.⁠ ⁠ Don't go too hard on the first few reps! You want to be able to complete the workout, and avoid debilitating soreness, or you will have to take more time off running! ⁠ ⁠ Its always fun doing this with friends too @meg__rose @joselynn_ 😘

Was not feeling leg day today! A super speedy 40 mins. Still it was better than nothing. And I feel better for it. Sometimes just to get moving is all you need and it doesn't matter if you don't complete your workout. #workouts #fitness #thismumcan #girlswholift #fitmums #strong #strongnotskinny #legday #glutes #doms #plymouth #puregymplymouth #trainhard #getfit #getstrong #ptintraining #gyminstructor

One of our team, Kerry has just returned from Sweden, having run in the 6sjors race near Uppsala. An absolutely beautiful race set amidst the forest and trails in and around Fjällnord lake. She was super pleased to have knocked over 20 minutes off her previous half marathon earlier this year. Here’s what she said “ I attribute the way I felt on race day, and how the race went on a few things-the strength work I’ve been doing by attending Fitcamp class with @rachaelhornfitness , the Pilates I do weekly through our classes at KPC, and the nutrition from @voomnutrition. The Pocket rocket bar was just incredible, starting off at one hour I then had a section every 20 minutes. I didn’t hit that empty feeling like I normally do and having the recovery fudge afterwards also helped. Thanks! I will certainly use this again-no horrid taste or texture and very easy on your tummy! I also changed my running style to ease some PFJ pain I have had since having my youngest son- deciding to practice some strategies from the research! @6sjoar #voomnutrition #PFJpain #runners#runnersworld #thismumcan #activecumbria #physioswhorun #sweden

If you are anything like me then you have spent most of the summer holiday trying to keep the kids happy, which is absolutely great but at the same time it is exhausting! - - It made me realise that I am not selfish I am smart! I recognise that devoting just a fraction of my time each day to my health and wellbeing makes me feel better. I am happier and I am more confident and just because I do that it doesn’t mean that my children go without! - - I want mums to recognise that self-care is important. I know that you spend your days caring so much for your families that you forget to care for yourselves and I can also tell you that you cannot pour from an empty vessel. - - On the 30th September I am starting a new online wellness group called “THIS MUM CAN” I want to help 10 mums get started on a wellness journey. I want to show you that: Just because you have a family it doesn’t mean that you cant take care of yourself. YOU CAN! YOU CAN feel confident about the way you look, it doesn’t matter if you have saggy skin or stretch marks or cellulite!! We all have that! I am going to make sure that you look in the mirror and are proud of what you see. YOU CAN eat healthier meals. It doesn’t have to stress you out! My job is to make your life easier! - - Message me for more information and let me show you how easy it is, all you need to do is reach out to me. I am here for you 🥰

Thank you to my amazing friend @caztaylorofficial for doing this on her holiday 💗 👉One of my old school friends wants to attempt to create LiveAid2020 for Climate Change • It’s an idea she’s had for a long time and she wants to try to make it happen. • She hasn’t any contacts and that’s where you all come in. • I’m not asking for any money, all I’m asking for is your help to share this post to get the word out. • Bob Geldof created something so spectacular in 1985 with LiveAid and he raised an immense amount of money for Africa, so she wants to recreate that for LIVEAID2020- have a worldwide concert and get as many Celebs involved as possible so we can raise awareness and money for something that is so important- THE CLIMATE CRISIS. Please post an image on Social Media holding up a signwith #Liveaid2020 for #climatechange and @liveaidmamma on Insta and tag as many people as you can and ask them to do the same- if the Water Bucket Challenge can go worldwide then why not this? If you are on Instagram she’s also set up a new account @liveaidmamma so please follow her and show your support.

Finally - my @parkrunuk 50 top!! Yes, I know there are some of you out there that got these ages ago or go every week and are asking what the big deal is? For me, it is more what this represents. I did my first parkrun on August 10th 2013 so it has taken me 6 years to get this! I really would love to go every week, maybe if I could I would volunteer more...only a somewhat shameful 9 times. Unfortunately balancing the needs of my family, especially the kids' football matches on Saturday mornings mean I have to take my opportunities when and where I can. It's not that I don't run, I just struggle to run at 9am on a Saturday morning!! I cannot praise the whole parkrun movement enough for the impact it has had on getting people to try running who previously wouldn't have done so before. I've converted many friends to running via parkrun and now I'm working on their children and my children's football team mates. I'm so proud to be a part of it. On to 100...10 for my two children...and to volunteer more often 😊 #runhappy #runmummyrun #parkrun #running #loverunning #runningcommunity #runnersofinstagram #runtoinspire #womensrunningcommunity #wearetherunners #womensrunning #igrunning #igrunners #instarunners #imabadassmotherrunner #thisgirlcan #thismumcan #thismumruns #worrylessrunmore #mumswhorun

Steps to safely return to running:⁠ ⁠ 1️⃣ See a women’s health physio for a comprehensive pelvic floor and abdominal wall assessment⁠ ⁠ 2️⃣ Progress through pelvic floor and core restoration, rebuilding from the inside out (with a specialist trainer if available)⁠ ⁠ 3️⃣ Advance to targeted strength training, building single leg and hip stability while maintaining pelvic floor and transverse abdominis control ⁠ ⁠ 4️⃣ Assess your running technique... just like our bodies, it may never be the same. Which is fine! We just need to adapt it slightly.⁠ ⁠ 5️⃣ Progress through a return to running protocol that includes technique drills, and easy running intervals building to your old distance slowly⁠ ⁠ 6️⃣ Remember you are post-natal forever, so be prepared to revisit all steps at some point, this is a cyclical process, not a linear one!

12km on the training plan today but I had an unsettled night with little one so we all ended up sleeping till 9.45am! 😴😴 Lovely but not great when you have to run in the heat! Decided to swap the plan around and do either the 4.5km recovery or 8km. Waited to see how I felt after 2km and all felt good so decided to run to the front and the pier and back. The cloud was very welcome this morning although on the return the sun shone through and made the run a lot harder! ☀️☀️🔥🔥🏃🏽‍♀️🥵🥵🥵 so glad it’s done now. #runner #running #holidayrun #holidayrunning #thismumcan #thismummycanrun #thismumcanrun #thismumruns #gsr #windsorwomens10k

🌸 #transformationtuesday 🌸 This was my result from the Beach Body plan first time round. I’m currently doing round 2 with #caseysbeachbodybabes with heavier weights. I’ve not been as strict with my food but stayed in a calorie deficit for the majority of the time. Really proud of myself for completing the plan a second time and managing to stay consistent even when I don’t feel up to it. The 30 minutes really is perfect for busy mums, especially with working full time. If you want results ladies I’d absolutely recommend @resultswithlucy I’ve learned so much about diet and exercise and the support from @resultswithcecilia and the #rwlfitties community is incredible #resultswithlucy #resultswithcecilia #rwlfitties #caseysbeachbodybabes #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #fitmum #mumfitness #postnatalfitness #fitnessmotivation #fitness #homefitnessprogram #homeworkout #workoutathome #mumsworkout #thismumcan #fitnesswithkids #healthybodyhealthymind #mentalhealth #endometriosis #healthymummy #transformation #fitnessjourney #mentalwellbeing #fitmumsclub

I was contacted yesterday by two completely independent people - one asked about #PMDD and one asked about my ab repair and #tummytuck. . I could tell it meant a lot to those women to hear someone talk openly and honestly about stuff that doesn't usually get talked about. . I bet they've got no idea how good they've actually made me feel; talking to them made me realise how far I've come. . Helping someone out and sharing experiences is easy, but asking for help can be unbelievably and excruciatingly hard. . #Pmddpeeps #womenshealth #exerciseformentalhealth #fitover40 #gymlife #gym #fitmum #thismumcan

A run home from work, and how is it getting dark already? 😔 is summer really nearly over. Anyways a big smile from me because I decided to trying ‘jeffing’ a techique I have heard about involving a run:walk ratio. I wasn’t sure what to use so I went with 4:1 4 mins run and one min walk. I pushed myself in the 4 mins and it seems to have paid off nearly a minute quicker than 2 weeks ago when I did the same route but ‘continuous running’ well actually I had to have walking breaks but they weren’t planned. I really enjoyed it; made the run go quicker so I may have a go at ‘jeffing’ some longer distances and see how I feel! #run#instarun#runmummyrun#runnersofinstagram#fitnessjourney#weightlossjourney#weightwatchers#wwuk#wwonline#jeffing#running#runningtechniques#fattofit#fitandforty#fabforty#thismumcan#thisgirlcan

I’ve had a tough day today. Finlay is going through a developmental leap where sleep has been very disturbed, he constantly wants to be held and just loves a good cry. Mix all of this with a lot of personal stuff and boy oh boy, it is draining. When I held my son for the first time, I had no idea how challenging it would be raising a little human being, whilst also dealing with other major changes that were happening in my life. I was just in sheer bliss and amazement that I was holding the little bugger that kicked me something rotten for the last few months of my pregnancy. Today, I’m not ashamed to admit I genuinely wanted to sit and cry - tiredness and feeling out of control can do that to you. I’m a control freak who likes to feel like she has her shit together 24/7 🙋🏻‍♀️, but as a Mum, that’s definitely not always possible. There are days where I literally feel like I’m pouring from an empty cup and beyond overwhelmed with everything. If it wasn’t for my kick ass family and friends, I’d have struggled way more. Thank you @danielle.sasaki for reminding me that it is okay to share the reality of how tough it can be behind the scenes and that we should share the bad, as well as the good. Sometimes it’s okay to admit defeat for the day and just look forward to a better tomorrow. . . . . . I was beyond exhausted when this photo was taken and still drugged up (hello diamorphine eyes). Still look this tired 3 months in! Now where can I get some of that diamorphine... 😆

My #mondaymotivation is friendship that knows no boundaries. • Friends that you can share anything with, positive and negative and whatever the conversation they fully support without judgement. • • @nixynoo2002 and I have been friends since 2013, our boys are in the same class at school. She was one of the first mums to speak to me (yup I was shy and kept myself to myself and didn’t ‘mix’) and our boys became good friends. Over the years, we have shared many a laughs (remember the dream boys 😂), great company, cups of tea and shed many a tear. But whatever happens through the rough and the smooth, she has always been there for me. • • We now simultaneously share the love of running, we both love the ‘headspace’ it gives us and can see the positive impact it has physically but mentally. • • Nix, you rock.

🤣 Love this quote! When I was expecting my second child so many people told me “The change from no children to one is the hardest - once you’ve got used to motherhood having another is not that big a deal” Well for me I felt like I struggled way more with two. I had prepared myself for it to be hard work with my first but with a toddler and a 👶 I found it so much harder!

Could you do the hustle?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As part of our ongoing focus on alternative careers we're talking this week about side-hustles and how some mums are turning to these in order to support their income or as a way of trialing out a potential career change before making a permanent move.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Side hustles are often flexible, can be done remotely or from home and involve a passion or interest that the person already has. This isn't to say they're easy going and a solution to the flexible working dilemma as many people have their side hustle as exactly that 'on the side' of their other job or career meaning working evenings or weekends.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So if you were to start a side hustle what would it be and why?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sidehustle #hustle #dothehustle #careersafterkids #thismumcan #womenreturners #womenempoweringwomen #womeninbusiness #mumsinbusiness #returningtowork #workingmum #endofmaternityleave #careerwomen #backtowork #careercoaching #careercoachingforwomen #virtualcoaching #businesscoachingforwomen #coachingforwomen #surreymums #mumsofinstagram #mumlife #mummylife #mumdiaries #mummydiaries #socialmums

And so the next stage of the journey begins... 😮😀🏃‍♀️🏋️‍♀️ . It's 20 years + since I formally studied for anything. . I'm not afraid of learning - hells bells, I've learned a LOT over the years, what with one thing and another...🙈 . You don't get from clueless, through #PCOS, #gestationaldiabetes, #insulinresistance, #weightloss, #PMDD, #hysterectomy and then #abdominoplasty with full #abrepair, to being in love with #weights and feeling fitter than you've ever felt before, without picking up a book or two and learning a bit. And that's before I even mention having kids! 😂 . But structured learning, with a timeframe and exams, now that's different and here I'm not quite so sure... 😬😬😬 . One thing that's remained constant throughout my entire journey to date is the difference #nutrition has made at each and every stage. I've been fascinated for years and now it goes hand in hand with my personal fitness goals; can't do one without the other. . So, time for structure and direction to learn the things I want to know, on an evidence based course that will benefit not just me, but my family too, and also my work. . How am I going to wedge it into my day? Haven't got a clue. But one thing's for sure, if my kids learn nothing else from me, they'll learn you eat your protein and veg, lift your weights, and do your homework! 😂🙈 . @martinnutrition and @macnutrition, I'm ready 👊. . #leadbyexample #selfcare #macnutritionuni #worklikeawoman #workingmom #lovetolearn #strongwomen #gymlife #thismumcan

Very happy with this morning’s weigh in. Down 2.5lbs and got my club 10 award 🎉🏅 so I’ve now lost 10% of my starting weight. I’m also 1/3 of my way through my overall target which is very exciting . . . #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworld #thismumcan #mumtum #weightwatchers #losingweight #gettinghealthy #babyweight #weighin #weighday #weightloss #losinglbs #club10 #club10slimmingworld #weightlossawards #gettingthere #ontrack

I've thrown away my weighing scales... I don't need to know my weight I just need to know how I feel about myself. American food 10 - 2 my willpower. I always think of Dot Cotton, just because you are slim does not mean you are fit and healthy. I'm not going to cut out too much food, I'm just not going to snack. Kick start with a nice gentle (almost) 5 miles.

This is how I feel today. Woken up not feeling very well again and I just want to hibernate anyway from the world! Less than two weeks until I have my next surgery, my consultant wanted me to have it done over the summer holidays and I’m kind of wishing I went ahead with it. I think I’m suffering from migraines, I have an aura in my eye sometimes when I wake up in the mornings and part of my vision is blurry, kind of like smashed glass or tuning of an old TV screen..... then I’m left with a headache all day. I’m pretty sure all the fluid in my head is causing this pressure though on my optical nerves. The hardest thing about all this is I have invisible symptoms, I look absolutely fine but don’t feel it. All I want for 2020 is a boring year! 🥺🙈

This weekends running included the Nairn Half Marathon, where I bagged myself a new PB 😁 1.55.40 (previous PB 1.58.59) Absolutely delighted with that result 💪 massive thank you to my amazing, supportive coach @performance_endurance_training ❤️ It was hot day with a head wind on the return leg. Finishing in the games arena was fantastic, pushed for a sprint finish 🏃🏃 overall very scenic, well marshalled course, would definitely run it again. Fab cheer squad on the last stretch, where I was seriously starting to flag, thanks @_weeannie_ and @amez_running ❤️ Yesterday was meant to be 10 easy miles but I cut it short at 6 miles, niggle in back of my knee and hip just hurt more and more as the miles went on, no point risking injuries this close to Tiree. Loved being off-road in the forest and beach. Afterwards had a 8 minute paddle/swim in the sea, was so refreshing. Looking forward to Wednesday's beach circuits 💪💦 So now on the final countdown to Tiree 😁😁 #roadtotiree2019 #nairnhalfmarathon #endurancerunner #endurancetraining #believeintheprocess #thismumcan #thismumruns #womensrunningcommunity #womensrunninguk #instarunner #runnerslife #runnersofinstagram #ultrarunnertobe #bodymagic #runhappy

Yesterday was AMAZING! . We visited @cadburyworlduk and had the most chocoliest time EVER! . I loved it so much I’ve decided to go back to the gym 😏🤦🏾‍♀️🤣🤣🤣💪🏾 . 🌟Fun facts below🌟 . ✍🏾Did you know that Cocoa (pronounces kak cow) was and probably still is Ghana’s biggest commodity! . ✍🏾That was the countries biggest wealth and then the selling and exploitation of people took place😔 . Obviously our trip yesterday didn’t go that deep lol - these are facts I knew from when I did a trip to 🇬🇭 Ghana . Anyway- it was amazing hearing KK talk about the Mayans and the Gods, he absolutely loved learning this in school and the knowledge really stuck. . It was a fun experience all round yesterday and even the teen smiled too 🏆🙌🏾🤩🤣 . #mumto4 #ukmummy #momsquad #motherhoodthroughig #mumlife #realmotherhood #lifesamumma #mummystatus #motherhoodjourney #thismumcan

🌅 Beat the Sunset 5k 🌅. . Well that hurt! Set out not expecting much. I’m not an evening runner, I’ve been up since 5:30 and not really eaten properly all day. . 🤨🤨🤨 . Started waaaaaaay too fast. This photo was taken in the first mile when I was feeling ok. Then it started to hurt but I’m stubborn and didn’t want to slow. Splits were 9:04/9:14/9:02 so I did slow a bit in the middle but not too much, which resulted in... . MY FASTEST 5K IN 14 MONTHS!. . 🥳28:23🥳 . Hog roast afterwards was tip top too! #willrunforfood. . 📸 Action shot courtesy of @fatherandrunner 📸. . #run #running #runner #motherrunner #runningmum #runnersofinstagram #runnerscommunity #rmr #runmummyrun #thismumruns #thismumcan #garmin #garminconnect #garminforerunner #forerunner235 #tikiboo #youdoyou #irunthisbody #desboroughraces #beatthesunset #tmr

Kinda conscious I’ve not uploaded a mug yet...so here’s me, in my loungewear (some might say pj bottoms) - can anything scream Sunday afternoon more? . As a teen I longed to be a skater girl but balance & more so gravity defied me so this skateboard is actually quite accurate 😊. . We’ve got 2 weeks left of our summer hols over here, so time to snap out of this fog before it’s back to work & school & wishing half term would hurry up! 🙈. . I know I’m most effective when I plan so first thing to do is write up our ideal week & go from there...budget friendly suggestions welcome 😊. . #thismumcan #nomumleftbehind #mumlife #skatergirl #mumblog #summerhols #hurryupsunshine #sundaystyle #comfy #loungewearislife #loungewear #vans #trainersbringmejoy #pjs #nightwalks
