A great few days πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ πŸ‘Ÿ πŸ… and I won on eBay!!!

Hi fellow running peeps. After my first post on here last week so much has happened!! On Friday I changed my route a bit and ended up further from home than I thought so had to continue running (obviously πŸ˜†) and ended up running just over 6k!! I was so chuffed to have run so far - and my pace was my best so far too - although I know I will definitely need to slow down for the longer runs.

Then I broke the rule of never running two days in a row and on Saturday I did my first park run - the picture is of myself (very red-faced) and my friend, who has done 58 park runs, as we left the park. It was great - incredibly hot and very busy but I came 126 out of 208 and although Strava lied to me saying I’d only done 4.7k my official Parkrun time was 31.19 - I know it’s not an exact science but I’ll take it!

And finally this morning I won a Garmin Forerunner 35 on eBay - can things in this world of running get much better than that??

Happy running and take care in this heat guys! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜†πŸ‘ŸπŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜˜

Sounds like you’ve been very busy! Well done! πŸ˜ƒβ€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Will love to hear how you get on with the Garmin Forerunner 35, as I’m thinking of that model once the next sales are on. (I’m useless on eBay!πŸ˜‚)

Thank you MD. I’ll definitely let you know - I’m so excited! Was going to wait and ask for one for Christmas but far too impatient for that πŸ˜† πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ 😊

Well done you!! You’ll love your Garmin πŸ‘. I have one and it’s fab! 😊

OMG Louise, you won a Garmain??? How? How? How? Your destiny was always to be a runner! πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Haha yes I did! If I wasn’t off work I wouldn’t have had the time to follow the bidding! Are you packed for Spain yet? X

It wasn’t free but much cheaper than in shops or amazon. X

Thanks Flick! I now need a goal so getting the watch may help to keep me more focused - at least that’s my plan! X

I'm doing a virtual challenge this month. It's certainly stopped me going out and thinking meh and just doing 2-3k, telling myself I'm too tired.x

That’s a good plan. I’m off on holiday on Sunday for a fortnight so I’ll start my plan when I get back. A virtual challenge is good but wasn’t sure I could manage it this month. Will sign up for September’s I think. X
