Liverpool Spring 10K

So, let’s kick off the start of the new week with a catch up of some of the brilliant performances from the Running Made Easy Team!

First up is Lauren with the Liverpool Spring 10KLauren10k copy.

“So so hot today, it wasn’t about time or position for me today. It about getting around and feeling comfortable as I struggle in heat. Managed to place 2nd Female and 101st over.”

Track Work!

We’ve been a little slow to update some of the brilliant performances from our clients over the last month. Chris W put in a series of cracking races indoors after coming back from a calf injury – even competing at the European Masters in Madrid after a small lay-off. We have been seriously impressed with his dedication and work effort which has paid off with a speedy 1500m outdoors in his first race of the season – his fastest since 1988! We have no doubt this consistent determination will bring around a flood of PB’s in the summer.

Triple threat!

It was a busy day for triple threat Emma. Running the 1500m wasn’t enough – she competed in the 5000m and the 4x400m relay to top off a brilliant day of racing! With a PB and 2nd place over the 1500m, unfortunately the 5000m didn’t go as smoothly. On pace for a PB, the officials miscounted the laps which meant it turned out to be a 4.7km race – it just means we’ll have to wait another few weeks to see Emma smash her 5000m best!

Monday Motivation from Rachel B

REPOST FROM @thelongrunback_rachel

12 miles in 1:59:19 today.


Well I was so inspired by the #londonmarathon (just like ever year!) that I just had to share this. The first #halfmarathon I did was back in 2015, I don’t have any pictures from it, and finished in 1:58:27 – my most recent was earlier this year with a finishing time of 1:42:50.

It took 3 years of learning, heartbreaking, frustration, blisters, poorly tummies and long miles, but I knocked 16 minutes off my time. If anyone watching the marathon today has been inspired and wants to start running, but thinks they aren’t good enough, ignore the doubtful thoughts and just run! The reward you get from this sport is incredible, and you will learn so much about yourself on the way.

Well done runners from this years marathon! You’re all superstars for running, especially in this heat.
