Quick morning run in the ☀️☀️☀️

Hello VRBs 👋

I had a lovely first run in Tenerife this morning. A relaxed 5k along the prom in Los Cristianos at about 8am. 😎 It was obviously the popular time to get out there because I was accompanied by numerous other runners and walkers, all taking advantage of the relative cool before the heat of the day hit. ☀️🏃‍♀️

It’s a very hilly resort and I’m determined to run a hill or two this week, promise! Today’s run was basically flat. 👍

Definitely nice being back in shorts and a vest top, and after the toxic 10 was over, I pootled along happily, definitely slow and steady! I’m in holiday mode and not out to break any records this week! (Wait, I never break records!) 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Got back for yoga on our hotel balcony with my daughters, followed by a tasty and fairly healthy breakfast - then we hit the beach and that’s where my activity for the day ended!

It felt great to get out running and I’m planning 2 or 3 more while we’re here.

Have a good week everyone, and happy running to you all. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

Glad you enjoyed your slow and steady run today cheeky, seems that you have enjoyed it with the company of other runners and walkers. So you do yoga as well, that's wonderful, last year my daughter gave me a yoga mat and I do yoga planks along with some YouTube videos, enjoy your runs, even the hilly ones.

Thanks AlMorr, yes it was nice being out at the same time as others. ❤️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️❤️ I’ll go out again on Thursday morning and tackle one of those hills! 🏃‍♀️💪

My older daughter introduced me to yoga last year before I began running, and I really took to it. It’s why I don’t find planks too daunting! 😀

Sounds bloody lovely! Glad your also scheduling some more runs in. At least it’s nice and warm. It’s like the arctic in old Blighty!

It is lovely Dave! It’ll be hard coming back next week - but hopefully spring won’t be long in coming. 🤞🤞

Absolutely. I think everyone thought it was almost here. Then we all realised it’s still actually winter.

cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to Hidden

I know, that week of spring-like weather we just had gave us all a false sense of security! Cruel! 😅😅

Sounds CC...lucky you in the sunshine, although I sit here typing this eating my salad with the sun streaming through the windows...open the front door though and whoosh...it's wizard of oz style weather here!!! I love tourist running, enjoy your holiday, you'll have a lovely tan to show off when you get back!! (That's me being optimistic about the weather!!) X

cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to Mummycav

Thanks MC! It reminds me of C25K which I did throughout the heatwave last summer! 🏃‍♀️☀️🏃‍♀️☀️

I also enjoy tourist running, it’s lovely exploring new surroundings. 👍🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️👍

That’s it rub it in CC ...wind rain and cold here today! My legs would have been blue had they not been buried under my thickest leggings. Glad you are having a great time with your family CC...nothing better😊

cheekychipmunks
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to Beachcomber66

Oh no, sorry BC! Didn’t mean to rub it in (whoa I’m hot, where’s the sunscreen☀️🏝☀️🏝☀️🏝☀️😅)

We’re here until next Monday so I’m planning more early morning runs to justify lying on the beach during the day! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to lexi6

It’s pretty amazing I have to admit Lexi! 🏃‍♀️🧘‍♀️☀️🏖 Not sure what your weather’s like, but apparently it rained a lot at home yesterday. It’s the reason we enjoy a winter break. 😀

lexi6
lexi6Graduate10 in reply to cheekychipmunks

Wet and of course windy here, my sister in law from Sydney is staying with us at the moment and is loving the cooler temperatures her daughter in Sydney said it was 38 degrees there yesterday. 🥵 a winter holiday sounds bliss, have fun and Happy running and stretching 😁

cheekychipmunks
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to lexi6

Oh my, 38 degrees is brutal. I bet your sister is enjoying the wet and windy weather!

Another run tomorrow - but beach again today. 🏖❤️

That sounds wonderful. You are an international runner, cheeky! 🙂

Good morning to you @cheekychipmunks (why didn't that highlight your name?) ahh 🙄 how are you? Sounds like you've set the record there innTenerife, I bet that was lovely doing a run there and especially before it gets too hot. Well done to you. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday x 😊

cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to quirkybee

Thanks QB! It was lovely out there and it felt great being out with everyone else too - like being part of it if you know what I mean. 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️ We walked the same route later in the day. Very hot and very busy. I felt righteous having done my run earlier. More of same tomorrow. 🏃‍♀️☀️

Awesome ... enjoy

Great! I had been on Fuerteventura in January and it was fantastic to run near the coast! :) Have a great time there and some good runs! :)

cheekychipmunks
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to Lezlie

Aww thanks Lezlie, we’d thought about Fuerteventura too. Maybe next year. Last year was Lanzarote - the Canaries are awesome for a winter break aren’t they? Running here is the icing on the cake! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

I am feeling so jealous. It is grey windy and wet here! Nothing like running tourism :)

cheekychipmunks
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to helenwheels

Isn’t it the best HW? I’m planning another run for tomorrow morning, slightly earlier than yesterday as it was pretty warm. 🏃‍♀️☀️

Back to reality next week .....:

Me jealous? Not a bit of it! Cracking idea to just go with the girls cheeky, have a fantastic time all of you.

cheekychipmunks
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to grumpyoldgirl

Aww thanks GOG. It’s lovely holidaying with my daughters. The sunshine and warmth make running so beautiful too. Back to reality next week. 🙄

Wow cheeky, that sounds absolutely blissful and well done for running on holiday. I hope you have a wonderful time, I thought of you on my run today while caught in a hail shower. 😉

cheekychipmunks
cheekychipmunksGraduate10 in reply to Crawlhome

Definitely fun running back in the warmth again CH! I’m hoping to go back out on Monday before we fly home. Was planning on tomorrow, but I jammed my foot walking yesterday (didn’t realise there was a kerb 🤦‍♀️) and it’s a little sore. I’ll give it a couple of days’ rest I think.

Hope the weather at home is improving for the weekend. 🤞
