Want to Run Stronger?

Running faster, improving your form, feeling great, and enjoying each run, so you can't wait to get out on the roads and trails!

Sound good? Then join in this challenge to get you set up!

All the details and option to join are below

When - Monday 1st July -  Sunday 4th August

What - 4 x 20 minute Pilates sessions per week (strength and mobility)

[NB - Sometimes one or more of the 20 minute sessions will be split into 2 shorter videos which you stack together to make 20 minutes.  Alternatively, you can do them separately if time is tight on that day]

Who - As always anyone is welcome! Don't worry if you're new to PfR, when it gets challenging you can simply opt for the easier levels I offer in session.  

How -

  • Follow along each week with the sessions posted in this challenge.  They will be marked off as you work through them

  • You can do the sessions spread over the week as 4 x 20 minute Pilates sessions, or you can stack individual sessions together into a few longer sessions. Whatever works best for you!

  • PLEASE NOTE - you need to follow the sessions as shown in this challenge area.  If you follow the sessions shown in "Collections and Challenges" be aware that it will show some sessions as already "greyed out" if you have did them prior to the challenge. To qualify for the prize draw you need to have done the sessions in this challenge period

  • Post in the Community when you're finished so we can all celebrate together!

Why - Results come from being CONSISTENT, and the best way to do that is to have a PLAN! If you complete the challenge you'll also get entered into the prize draw of 3 months free!

Let me know if you have any questions.

I can't wait to see how you all do,

Wanted to share some of the awesomeness of love trails festival we're just driving back from the weekend; it's in Gower, South Wales and it's a trail running/music festival with a bit of everything from yoga, pilates, breathwork, adventure activities and a range of live music. Did the 10km "race" on Saturday but it was a slow plod with lots of queues for kissing gates etc. Also did run to the beach for a sea dip (18km round) and run to wine tasting. Did plenty of stretching/mobility stuff too. Finished with a wood fire hot tub too, overall an awesome weekend and highly recommend!

Just wanted to share the beautiful scenery of the Lundy Island Race that I did yesterday. A tough route of quite technical trail in places but absolutely stunning. Oh, and I did see puffins and seals too. Win win.

Not a running photo......😬
Been away for a couple of nights to Alicante with some friends. Took my running gear and I'd love to say I got out to explore the area on a run, but.........I didn't!
I lay on the beach, chatted with my friends and read my kindle 👌
Despite my first marathon being 8 weeks away, I felt like I just needed a complete break. There's been a lot going on at home recently and whilst physically I feel fine, mentally I was hitting a wall prior to this trip.
In the bigger picture I'd rather nurture my mental health than push on physically just for the sake of a single event or race.
I love running, I want to do my best, but there are some things I won't compromise on.
We all have differing priorities, be really clear on what yours are 🙌
Happy Sunday!

Completed 10 Minute Total - Foot, Calf and Ankle Strength #11, session 1 week 3. I enjoyed this session keeping it mostly to the lower level. Still struggling to raise my left heel. Easier on my right. Will need to do this session frequently to help with my running. Thanks Liz 😃👍
