‘you may have to fight a battle more than once to win it....’🌟
.
.
these pictures are 3 weeks apart ➡️and what a difference 3 weeks makes! i definitely did not go from running a 1:36 hm to a 1:30 hm in 3 weeks. 😁
without doubt i was capable of the 1:30 performance on 16th september....but sometimes the performance we are looking for just isn’t there. there are multiple elements in a race and all it takes is one thing to go awry and the whole thing goes down the toilet.😉🚽the disappointment and devastation of not running the race i knew i was capable of in september was raw and real. but i absolutely knew i had it in me. i had to find the mental strength to learn from my mistakes, understand myself as a runner better, and not to let the demons of that bad race haunt the next one. and that is where the transformation is; it’s the one in the mind. i didn’t give up, i came back fighting 3 weeks later with a new race strategy and the belief that the months of training gave me the pace and endurance to cross the line in 1:30. when you get knocked down, you gotta get right back up again. when you’ve worked your b**t off but don’t get the right result, keep fighting; it’s in there but you have to try and try again!👊🏃‍♀️💥#nevergiveup .

These easy runs are starting to feel easier at last! i don’t need to keep looking at my hr as i’m tuned into my body a lot more now. i’m going to keep experimenting with these easy runs. today’s was fasted and in the dark. i’m hoping to do my next one fuelled and in daylight to see if there’s any difference. i did some strides after so i could get my hr up #endorphinaddict 136bpm just doesn’t give me a hit 😂 #fastedrun #6amclub #trusttheprocess #easyrun

You don’t need to be skinny and small to progress as a runner.
i’m 6’2 and 92 kg / 200 + lbs and i’ve rarely weighed much less than that in five years. excess body f*t won’t help, but being strong and physically robust can be a huge advantage when running far in the hills or mountains.
it’s also fun to be a more well-rounded athlete who can do other stuff. doing a sub 3 hour marathon is amazing but if you can barely do 5 press ups then there’s a missing component in your fitness.
i’m not advocating hitting the protein shakes and getting massive - but being a workhorse rather than a thoroughbred is no bad thing!
i wrote an article for @trailrunnermag a while back on the subject. perhaps you’ll find it helpful. you can read it via the link in bio.

Hello everyone 👋
.
i wanted to do something different today and share a few facts about me.
.
so let’s start off with the basics. i am daryl 😃
.
i live in bristol with my wife @martha_runs. we moved west just a little over 8 years ago. we’ve been together nearly 12 years and married for 1 year. she is my rock. i don’t know what i’d do without her ❤️
.
i’ve been very active throughout my life. from football, to basketball and then to running. ironically, at school i absolutely detested running. even though i ran for the county several times 😂🤦‍♂️
.
i am a web developer by day and all around lover of technology. it’s a big passion of mine. i love to develop new ideas and solve problems. the bigger the problem the more the enjoyment 🤓
.
i am annoyingly bad at writing. i’m that person who gets “there, their and they’re” wrong 🤷‍♂️
.
i have the biggest addiction to formula 1. if it’s on tv, good luck trying to have a conversation with me. it’s very unhealthy (i know!) 😳
.
a few other (weird) facts:
.
▪️i love the pain/feeling of training and/or racing hard. there’s no feeling like the build of lactate in your legs 💪
▫️i enjoy a good hike. the hillier the better i guess ⛰
▪️i love coffee ☕️
▫️i never throw anything away #hoarder ▪️i can’t swim, but i want to do a triathlon/ironman 🏊‍♂️ 🚲 🏃‍♂️
▫️i like most music, but if you play linkin park then we’ll be friends forever. i’ve listened to them everyday since i was about 11. it’s like a ritual to me. 🤘
▪️i want to learn some kind of musical instrument preferably a guitar but i’m toying with the idea of the piano 🎹
▫️i’m very shy and i struggle massively in social situations (you’ll find me in the corner watching quietly most of the time)
.
so now you know - i’m actually a massive nerd 🤓 - who else wants to play?
.

The autumn 100 definitely didn’t go to plan. i managed to get ill a couple of days before the race but i started anyway and hoped i’d be ok. i wasn’t.
.
i made it thirty miles in and decided to stop. i’d never dnf’d a race of any distance before this, but my body temperature was far too high and i felt rough. i could certainly have ploughed on to the finish, but it just wasn’t worth making myself really sick for. so i handed my number in and called it a day.
.
i’m 100% happy with my decision. if it had been my first hundred i would have kept going and would have worried about the consequences later. but it wasn’t and so it just wasn’t worth it. it’s only a race, over a distance i’ve done a few times before.
.
it’s just one of those things unfortunately. it’s a bit of a b****r but there will be other races. i got to come home to a place i love and i got to catch up with some great people i haven’t seen for a while. life is really pretty good.

Calm before the storm?
.
.
all done for the year🙌🏽
.
.
no more races to target, so for the next few weeks i’m just going to focus on strength training and the miles will be long and steady! yeah there are some races to run, i’m just not going crazy at them! been a long time since i’ve been able to allow myself to relax and i think it’s time to put the priority in the right places 🙌🏽

There are less than 30 places left in the half duathlon at super early bird prices and when they’re gone the price will rise.... enter the 2019 descente london duathlon now! #ld19

Nice little 4 mile easy trot around the woods today. haven't been running around here for ages but this is definitely my favourite time of the year to do so, with the trees changing and leaves everywhere, stunning. so lucky to have this place on my doorstep.

for those of you that don't know the ballot registration for berlin 2019 opened today. i had such a good time there last year, definitely still one of my favourite marathons and the course is as flat as a pancake, what's not to love? get applying, you won't regret it! we also enjoyed many steins of beer afterwards, but the less said about that the better eh @seanstrider?

Really looking forward to the @tcsamsterdammarathon on sunday. hope i can add to these three medals. just a few days ago i didn’t think i’d make the start line 😡 after some physio my ankle feel so much better. genuinely positive that i will make it now. fitness test tomorrow. no matter what i will be there a cheering people on 👍

Great pic joanna 🏁 good luck in the great south run #runfestgoodwood

putting the bass in my walk, these photos highlight my curves to no end. and luckily for me, my mindset is just in the right place to appreciate that rather than hate. 🍑
.
.
i do my best to look good for photographers at races because honestly, i want to get my monies worth. 🤑
.
.
let's hope i can manage it again at the great south run. .

Finish line action from last sunday's great eastern half-marathon from peterborough, uk as i was trying to spur molly on to smash the two hour mark and i did a celebration of lille's fc best player so far this season, nicolas pepe ( dont ask why, its seems to be the crazy in hautes de france region right now). love running in the rain.

Good luck to everyone running the abingdon marathon on sunday. this was my first marathon back in 2013 and it almost broke me, but i never gave up and got my target of achieving a gfa time for @londonmarathon and the first of many sub-3hr marathons. #ukrunchat #throwbackthursday #running #marathon #abingdonmarathon #gohardorgohome #42km #sub3 #gfa #goodforage #visorclub #skins #garmin #asics #instarunners

First time i’ve actually got round to doing a strength session in a good month 😳😳
these past few days have been utterly exhaustion fuelled. lots of training and uni work ramping up means i’ve been running on empty. today ended up being a proper rest day, as in a rest from lectures too 🙈 i can catch up online and ended up sleeping in until 10am which is unheard of for me. so as guilty as i feel i think it was the right decision. wanted to get out the house for a bit so did a very gentle weights session. i really, really need to prioritise it a little bit more but generally can’t face 2 sessions a day so this normally gets dropped.

Chicago & new york city marathon training day 92.
.
another day closer to @nycmarathon 16 days until i fly out for the last race of a very long tiring year where i began training on the 27th november.
.
today was a 45 min easy paced run that felt like a half marathon. i have felt pretty run down and tired today. a week of little sleep is catching up with me, so a much needed rest day tomorrow.
.
one plus point, my new @rymorasports compression socks arrived today so i took them out for a run and no calf pain or aches 👍🏻 i am pretty certain that my calf cramp in chicago was due to my old compression socks rolling down in the first mile so these new ones should do the trick and sort that issue out.
