Hello Runners

I’m just back from Run 2 of 3 to fulfil my January Quest. I work away during the week and I haven’t been packing the running kit for a little while! 😊 In fact the kit was kind of tucked away for a bit, at home and away! But start to 2019 has been great and the Quest is made to spur me on! There’s no distance involved here, because my greatest achievement this month would be 3 runs per week!

I’ve done it in Jan Week 1, now I’m on 2 of 3 in Week 2. I’m absolutely delighted that I got back out there, though I did need to wait for a bit of light! Roll on spring! πŸ™πŸ½ It’s challenging to fit it in before work. It was meant to be a fast pace 7 min β€œtempo run”, but I didn’t feel I got going during that time and I don’t think it was very fast πŸ˜‚. I like when you get to feel a little lost in the run, so I carried on to complete 2.46k in 18 minutes. I’ve done my run!πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½!

Next run Friday, when I’ll be back at home! Could do Parkrun on Saturday though! 😊 Mmmm....will see! Time to get ready β€œvery quickly” for work!! A discipline I’m not great at! The mission continues!! 😁😁😁

Happy running runners and questers!! ❀️

All part of the fun - sounds like your parking issues are tougher than the run itself! πŸš— 🚘 πŸš™ πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Yes it’s very beautiful. I do feel lucky, I just have to delay a bit in the mornings at the moment so that I can see it!! πŸ‘“ I’m actually enjoying it being a bit nippy too! Wakes you up nicely!! 😁❀️

Good work, Fab! That’s a brilliant goal, to get out three times a week. I love running when it’s cold, but the dark mornings are starting to get to me, I must admit. Mostly because it seriously limits my route options, and I cannot run in my beloved woods (though I do get to treat myself to the woods and park on the weekend runs). Happy happy Fab! xxx

Thanks Sadie!! I’m the same! I swear I can’t see a thing when it’s dark. πŸ˜‚! Weekends are my favourite for running too! It sure does make January feel very different! I like it!! Happy running! ❀️

Good job... a run is a run is a run.

If I was you I’d run Friday... only because there’s no way you’ll be at parkrun, in time, with charged devices and a parking space πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Happy running!

🀣🀣🀣! Oh ye of little faith!! 😊 Actually you’ve got faith in abundance and of course you’re right, but you do know that’s another incentive? Crafty!! πŸ€—πŸ€—β€οΈ

I have every faith that you will just go run and keep it up and be healthy and happy... that’s who you are. My confidence you’ll make parkrun with everything in order at the right time is pretty irrelevant compared to all the reasons we had to start running... so when the stars align and you do parkrun with a recorded time, that’s just icing on the cake really. You probably hold the record for best parkrun screw up ever with an 11k run!

Thanks so much!! I’m going to give it my best shot! So far each run has really set me up for a good day!! It’s so much better than reviewing a long list of to do’s in your head as soon as you wake up! Whatever it is, it can wait!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚β€οΈ

I've given myself s small annual target of 700km, which is 15km per week with a month off. I'm planning to make a chart where I can add the kms each run and see them add up. Maybe that will keep me on the straight and narrow. Maybe! I'm not good at winter running 😊

Wooh, I like it! 🀩🀩! Go you!! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½!

I’ve had the same thoughts about winter running (still do 🀭), but β€œmaybe” is the right word! As just maybe we are!! Let us see together!! I remember I thought maybe I can’t for C25K, but slowly it turned to maybe I can, then.....right that’s it, I bloody well can and I will! πŸ˜‚

If you want to consider a different way of recording it, the Nike+ App does all that for you. They have some achievement awards (shiny badges basically) too. Go you!! πŸ’₯🀩❀️
