Was supposed to go to the gym tonight for some hill repeats on the treadmill. Fell asleep. Woke at 7:10pm. Decided to scrap it. Then stressed out for 30 minutes about not doing running so decided to go and run around the local roads and do a 3km: something at least. Went out steady and slow and quite enjoyed it! Kept going on longer ways home so to add more distance and did over 6k in the end. No speed really but I’m proud I did it after nearly writing the night off which would’ve annoyed me for quite some while. 👍🏽

Next run: pacers’ week at the ParkRun and my first race on Sunday - the local 5k 🤗

Well done you! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ That must have taken a fair bit of resolve. Extra well done! All the best for Saturday 😊, yikes and Sunday! So are you planning to run two consecutive days?

I’m going to have to! Going to put some effort in on Saturday for pacers and see if I can improve, but Sunday will have to be leisurely. Thank you 👌🏽

Thank you! Chasing that bloody sub 30 5k is going to take some time!

Well done, I get so twitchy if I don't get to go out for a run as I had planned.

I’m wondering if I’m addicted 😂

Yep, there are worse addictions. One of mine is loyalty cards for certain shops. Maybe I should get out more!

My other is food unfortunately 😳

Well done, I love it when a run unexpectedly ends up further than anticipated, it feels like a bonus. You did well.

Well done Tash, l'm the same would just torment myself if I didn't go. Went out at 9o'clock tonight after dinner, still hot and laboured really hard for 30 mins. Really ugly run won't be having dinner before run again.

All the best for your runs this weekend. Will be cheering you on! :) :)

Great run Tasha. I resigned myself to the fact I won’t be beating any pb’s but just completing my runs in this heat and a great achievement. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I’ll see how I go tomorrow 🤔 Going to dope with my inhaler and caffeine sports drink before I run 😂

That's fab, and you ran Bart Simpson! I think going out, seeing where you go, just having fun is great. I did that today cross country and got thoroughy lost, but saw some lovely things xx
