BRWC: Congratulations on your Marathon Time. How did you get into running?
When I was younger I used to compete in cross-country races. I ran competitively for England and Great Britain which is how I got into distance running. After moving to New York, I took a break from running for a few years until in 2018 I decided to run my first marathon!
BRWC: How many miles a week do you train?
In 2018 I was training 40 miles a week but 6 weeks before the race I tore my lower back muscle whilst training in Central Park & had a trapped nerve. Due to the pain and severity of the injury I was in the hospital and couldn’t walk properly up until 3 days before the race. So, the 2018 marathon was my first exercise/ run in 6 weeks.
I managed to do the race in 3 hours 33 minutes which I was pleased with. For the 2019 marathon I reduced my weekly mileage to a maximum of 25 miles a week and ran it in 3 hours 23 minutes which I was happy with. I find if I go over 30 miles a week, I tend to get injured so having the right balance is key.
BRWC: What does your diet look like?
I try to stay as Keto as possible (limit carbs). I also take multi-vitamin supplements (for overall health), probiotics (for gut health) and Nutrafol (for my hair/skin/nails) every day. I don’t really drink alcohol, I’m not against it I just rarely drink and I tend to drink tea instead of coffee.
BRWC: Do you do any other workouts other than running?
Yes of course! I am a member of Fithouse where I like to do Barre classes!
BRWC: Are you running in the New York City Marathon this year? If so what time are you aiming for?
I haven’t decided yet but if I do I am going to aim for 3.13 which will keep my times very consistent!
