Hey Runners

Since my rather eventful sort of run on Saturday I havenโ€™t been for a run until today. I was up at a ridiculous waking hour to travel to Guernsey on Monday (pitch black outside) and then I had a late finish here. It was dark outside by the time I had a chance to declare the work day done. So, I opt for steak in the restaurant instead and an early night. All very nice. But, then I woke up at the same ridiculous time again this morning and donโ€™t seem to be able to get back to sleep. ๐Ÿ˜ด Grrrrr......And I do mean ridiculous! ๐Ÿ™„ So thoughts of the early morning run I had the night before crashed. Evening run then? Hey...weโ€™ve had all the other promises, whatโ€™s one more eh? ๐Ÿคจ!

Out to work. Another late finish! WTH? ๐Ÿ˜ซ I can feel the gremlins descending already!! So I decide to take out my double barrel during the taxi ride home! โ€œYou Fabulous, are going to go in that room, put your kit on and do a run!โ€ (Not out loud...didnโ€™t want to worry the poor driver ๐Ÿ˜) and ....โ€It doesnโ€™t matter how long or how far or how slow, but youโ€™re goingโ€! And thatโ€™s exactly what I did! Mission complete!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

These days are going to happen, what am I going to do stop running? ๐Ÿ›‘ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Hell NO! So, I kicked my own butt and itโ€™s done. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I do prefer daylight running and I only did 27 minutes, but Iโ€™ll have it. Iโ€™m better than where I started from. Itโ€™s a gremlin slaying win! ๐Ÿคฉ

I still need an early night though too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy running Runners! โค๏ธ

Hey, life does that to us... then we get back on it... you found some time and got out there... thatโ€™s how it is. 27 minutes will have you gagging to go again on Thursday. Good job Fab.

Well done lass. That's the way. I had a similar thing going on this morning but opted to run and go to work later. Lucky me I can do that, but I have to make my hours up during the rest of the week now.

It did take some butt kicking to get me out there this morning so I know the feeling.

I did Sandra. I have to be honest and say itโ€™s more for the butt kicking than run euphoria! 3 โ€œrest daysโ€ wasnโ€™t being entertained! ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

Aah thanks so much Petrometro! That's so nice! I quite love what I do at the moment and it involves being away from home quite a bit. โค๏ธ

what do you do F450?. You seem to have a soft spot for the channel islands. Potatoes, Tulips, Roses or all at once?

Well done for kicking the butt of those gremlins and defeating them. 27 minutes is pretty respectable - a run is a run after all.

I think we're all going to be needing our Gremlin Slaying tactics more and more as Autumn sets in.

Hey Fabz I've only just seen this, but glad I have ๐Ÿค— It's given me the push I needed, I've slipped back to procrastinating and telling myself I'll run tomorrow etc ..... tomorrow comes, and I don't!! Gremlins have reemerged and there's a slippery slope ahead of me..... I need to stick those trainers on bright and early and get out there! Thank you Fabulous450 for posting! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to Flaraflarkin

Hey Flar!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ! Great to see you! ๐Ÿ˜! Yep, my running mojo has been affected by long hours and travelling recently. But it just tells me some letting go and adjustment is required. You can use determination in the wrong way if youโ€™re not careful! We are runners, so just go out do you thing and enjoy the run!! โค๏ธ
