Hi Runners

I kept to my running quest and I’m super pleased right now!! I did the 3rd run of my January Quest W2 yesterday morning. I left out at 6:45am, a bit dark, but doable. I decided to be adventurous and tried putting my head torch on my waist! Result:πŸ₯΄! Not any worse, but nothing to shout about. I’m not sure if this torch thing is working for me.

Anyway........let’s get to the good bits! It took 27 minutes to get there. I realised I’ve taken 1 minute off my time, so that’s good news. And my coffee run reward card is complete!! Free cup next time! Nice!! And the walk back was enjoyable too! Great way to start a morning! I’m off for a walk this morning too. I’m going to see if that helps to keep me in a routine!

Here’s to the January Quest - Week 3, watch out! I’m coming for ya!!

Onwards and upwards runners!! πŸ€” ❀️

Well done Fabulous! That's a great idea for run motivation - might have to start looking for a good coffee shop that I can walk home from too :D XX

Congratulations on improving your time 😸 It always gives you a buzz when you can 'see' times come down.

Thank you! Yes that was a lovely little surprise! I tend not to think about time too much, but it’s nice to see its improved even if you don’t realise that while you’re running.

I did a 10k last night with no attempt to go quick. Just satisfied that I could do it.

What a great reward system! Love it. Way to make running fit with your schedule...and have that carrot (or should I say coffee) dangling for encouragement 😁

Brill Fab! I’ve yet to run in the dark as there’s no pavement outside our house, and all my regular park routes would be 😱😱😱

I love your coffee rewards, and the freebie next time will be well deserved! Good for you Fab! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

I know what you mean Cheeky! I really love the parks. But luckily we do have pavements, so it’s ok to embrace the darkness (well...maybe not quite embrace, but I’m trying all sorts to trick my brain here!! 🀣)! ❀️
