I'm a runner 😎

I was ambling along At the park and ride to get the bus to a meeting in town and he started his flipping engine while I was a fair way off ( I'm sure he saw me) SO I started MY engine and belted it in my v v high bootees!!! I leapt on, grinned, payed and sat down perfectly composed and breathing normally. I clocked his disappointed smirk that I wasn't breathless and red faced...

Ha ha 'cheers drive' I'm a Runner 😎

That made my day today I felt very smug indeed !!!

There was a time I would have got on that bus half dead after doing that, and only 3 years ago!!!!

I don't think that I have got the cardio fitness that you have -- BUT I have noticed just when walking with my contemporaries ( old F***'s) that my cardio fitness is WAAAAY superior to theirs!! :)

Ha ha. Good for you, the get! They do that don't they. Grrrrr I expect it's their way of making the day go a bit quicker.

Having a turn of speed is so handy isn't it.

Well here is a well earned smug look just for you. 😁 Go go runner

Lovely and very worth it. Funnily enough it was failing to be able to run for a bus this time last year that motivated me to do c25k. Still can't run in heels, though.

Reply

I can't walk in heels, so I would have had no chance ! So well done juicyju for both the run and the heels :-)
