Hello my VRB’s 👋
I’ve just got back from a lovely 5k. Nothing special about it - my usual route, my usual relaxed slow pace, my dog attached to my waist having a lovely time. ❤️
I don’t quite know why I’m posting, but I suppose it dawned on me that last year, popping out on a cold windy December morning for a 5k run would have been so far off my radar and I’d have scoffed if someone suggested I do it.
It wasn’t ideal prep either. Late night singing with my wonderful choir in a Christmas concert, a few mulled wines on board, a Fish Finger sandwich when I got home (compulsory), and definitely not enough proper hydration! 🍷 🎶🎄 But I still went out! I turned off the split time announcement on MMR and just kept the distance one on. I didn’t want to know! As it turned out, it was just over 40 minutes. I was surprised it was that ‘quick’ in the circumstances, especially with my shocking prep and a hefty head wind in places. 💨
So that’s this week’s 5k done. ✅ Back to parkrun for the next one (volunteered yesterday), but first I have my 9k on Tuesday. Will definitely make sure I prep better for that run. 😅
Hope you’ve all had awesome runs this weekend, and have a great week! 👍😀🏃♀️🏃
