Hi Runners

I’ve just done my last run before my charity run on Saturday. I did just under 6k on Monday, but didn’t have time to post. That was a lovely Headspace run. And I could have gone on longer. But mindful of the rest and recovery required, I left it at that.

Today was benchmark. 7 mins warm up, 3 minutes of run hard and 5 minutes cool down. Nice run to prepare for my day. Work will be pretty full on, but exciting, for the next two days.

I’ll only be doing a workout session to help to build up my stamina on Friday now, (rather than a run). So I’m ready for Saturday!! I’m now on the home stretch to a big running goal and I’m sure a pretty emotional but happy day!! πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸŒˆ!

Happy running Runners! ❀️

Thank you so much Gazloc!! 😍❀️

Well done Fab - great idea to give your legs some rest before a β€˜big’ run. I’m saving mine now until the next parkrun. πŸ‘

Aah thank you so much Flara!! I even bought a special pair of shorts for my run!! It’s green with the little skirt over!! I think I’m going to look like a rainbow before the paint throwing starts, but as I say, β€œOut there, don’t care”!! It’s a big colourful event!! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€β€οΈ

Good luck - we’ll be waving the Pom poms and cheering you over the line - go you! πŸŽ‰πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ…

Is that pink and bright yellow? WE WANT GARISH!!!

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to Jundal

Oh it’s garish! Shorts are a neon(ish) green! I also have a very old school headband/goggles with blue shades to keep the paint out of my eyes. Nothing to cover the mouth though! 🀣🌈🌈🌈🀭

I guess I’ll look like a clown before and after. I’ll have it!! 🀣❀️

Aah thank you so much Fernshome! I never thought I’d be all smiley about running a 5k race. 😁 In fact, I probably would have been worried about walking it before C25K!! Get me!! πŸ€£πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½β€οΈ

Good luck, enjoy it and you'll be fab! Don't start off too fast and pace yourself, then give it your all at the end. Don't forget to smile for the cameras and be prepared to feel epic when you finish πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Oh thank you so much Irishprincess! I’ll be smiling before and after!! I’m practicing a lot of smiling already!! I won’t go out fast! I’m on a mission! The only personal goal is to run the whole course! The time has absolutely no significance on this one!! πŸ’ͺ🏽😁😁❀️

πŸ‘‹πŸ½πŸ‘‹πŸ½ Thanks so much Eiralas!! Missed ya Eiralas! Hope you’re doing ok in your recovery. πŸ€—

I’m feeling excited already!! I can’t believe it’s tomorrow!! 😱 It seemed such a long way away when I signed up. And... no way did I think I’d be running all the way. I just have to focus on staying in my capability zone with the pace. So I’ll be tracking down a slow Pacer and just pick it up naturally.
