Whispering gremlins.....or Snow white's dwarfs?!

Whispering gremlins.....or Snow white's dwarfs?!

Misty, murky day here yesterday but needed to get out. Since early December the longest run I have managed is 6k and slow! Various obstacles have hindered my progress, some nice - visiting neice, Christmas and some not so nice - lurgy, accident and some long hours at work. So I donned my gear, sorted dog and off we went to the forest. I set off reasonably positive but the gremlins or maybe the 7 dwarfs were hiding in the trees whispering to me!

Sleepy: you are very tired, go back to bed

Sneezy: sore throat...maybe you are getting a cold

Grumpy: phew, this is HARD work...moan, moan

Bashful: I hope no one else is in the forest to see your red face

Doc: your legs feel heavy, your knee hurts and your neck aches - better stop for a rest

Greedy: no energy....oh why did you only eat a small banana this morning

But despite the whispering I plod on, determined to run more than 6k. Composing this post helped me forget those pesky gremlins and suddenly Runkeeper said 7k! Out of the trees I now leave those gremlins to moan by themselves....up the hill slowly, slowly and I'm at the gate. 8k - hooray!! Now I hear one more dwarf singing to me 'Happy, happy' πŸ˜€

Ps sorry, can't seem to delete inappropriate 'tags'
