Thank you 😊 I had to do a bit more otherwise when it transfers it to Strava it takes a bit off ... twice it’s changed my 5k to 4.9k and I wasn’t risking it 🀣🀣

Whoopee to you Bridget! You did it!!! Many congratulations! Enjoy your time on the podium, don't forget to request your well deserved badge and all the very best for your onward running journey.

I have just arrived back from a dentist appointment which was not fun so your post was just what I needed to change my focus. Thank you and very well done! Enjoy your high! I'm smiling with you! 😊Have you planned any celebration?

Thank you 😊 I was only supposed to be doing the 9k but I couldn’t leave that 1k just dangling there so I just kept plodding 🀣🀣 hope your dentist appointment went well? And your hamstring is feeling better.

Reply

I forgot to mention the extra well done for completing your 10 km in wind, rain and hail! Amazing!

Dentist was OK and hamstring is still not right, but improving slowly, I think. I have a feeling that I shall be building up my running from about 15 minute runs, boo! I like the longer runs because of the sight seeing you can do. 15 minutes doesn't take me far enough. Ah well as long as we are improving our health and fitness, the long runs can wait for the time being.

Did you explore a new route today or keep to familiar territory?

That Graduate 10 badge looks brilliant by your name! Whoop! Whoop! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Thank you for the extra well done 😊 I ran to where the park run is held plodded round there for a bit then plodded home but had only done 8.5k so had to do the beginning of the run again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ sorry your hamstring is still playing up but it will get better soon and you’ll soon be back to where you were πŸ‘πŸ»

Woo hoo! Well done, Bridget! Running 10k is no mean feat at the best of times, but kudos for you on doing your 10k in the wind and rain! That makes you extra tough.

Congratulations!

Put it like this, I won’t need to do any squats. The great thing is that the running helped my skiing with improved stamina. Win win.
