My last run was on Saturday, but I packed my kit to run while I am away. I got home yesterday pumped up and excited as it was still light, getting my kit out, thinking 💭.......happy days😍!! And then what? Trainers ✅ 😁 Top 😁 ✅ ......dig.....dig....💭, “where’s my leggings”? 😵.....yep!.....AWOL! 🤦🏽♀️
So making light of my plight (we won’t call it stupidity! That’s not nice! 😂) I decide, well it looks like there’s no running until I get home on Friday. I go for dinner and let it go!
However this morning, I was thinking 💭 (I know...again! 🙄) I might be able to buy some later, but is it worth doing that? To cut a long story short, a couple of my VRBs had suggested running in undergarments! Yes.....you know who you are!! 😶😏 And they were duly advised ‘Not a chance in H’! Besides, I’d be escorted off the Island!! 🤺🤺🤺😊
I took a short trip into town at lunch time and browsing the sale rack, I find a pair of old school leggings. No price tag, but thought it would do the trick!! Guess what?........50p!! Weeeeeelll, now that’s a gremlin busting bargain and a half!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽😍 So, I know my run is on! I have a spa and gym where I’m staying this week 😁, so I decide to go and take a look, face “the machine” and see how it goes 😬.
I did W1R1 on the treadmill, but never been back since! It wasn’t one of those virtual running screen ones like today, so this was different and kind of fun. I definitely prefer to be outdoors. I really didn’t understand how to operate it either, so it was a flat 7.1 pace all of the way. There was no straight forward up and down buttons to vary the pace. That said, it’s done!! I did 3k! Not so much buzz for me today, as I had to focus quite a bit, but I’m glad I got there and had another new adventure!! My 50p leggings made it possible and it’s in the bag!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽😍😁❤️
