International Women’s Day Run! Im still trying but fabulous all the same!

Hey runners!!

Back out there today after one of my good VRBs UnfitNoMore advised Nike has an achievement for a run today! Nice, subtle encouragement! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Well, it worked, as I thought, 😯 yes... I should go and get that! But in the middle of the day and with work to do before the end? It needs to be sensible! Do I go or leave it? Look...if I’m being true to myself, I should just make time and go! How much time? Well....that’s a different matter. 😊

So, the thing I like about my app is, it seems to cater for every mood and capability. And low and behold there’s a 10 minute run! I briefly considered it cheating, but from where I’ve been...(at ground zero), there’s really no cheating involved here! So, 10 minutes it was! I’ve got to give myself a little cheer for those short few minutes. I did it when I could have so easily thought it’s not worth it! But Gremlins, I’m on it and you’ve been slayed! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜

Happy running to everyone out there today and every day! No matter how long or how slow! You’re running and that’s so much better than zero!! Until next time Runners!! Enjoy! ❀️

I also spotted the short run on Nike today, it will come in handy at some point.

Only friendly runners out in the rain today :-)

Hope you feel pleased you did it!

Yes CouchPotato, it certainly did come in handy, It was a bit blustery today, but it blew off some cobwebs nice and quickly!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Thank you!! πŸ€—β€οΈ

Actually it must be nice going for a shorter run as you know you can run as fast as you want and it will soon be done ;-)

Ah Couchpotato I wish I could say it was fast, but alas it was pretty slow too! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚! But you’re right! If you just want to go for it! It’s a great way to do it! πŸ₯°β€οΈ

That’s it. As fast as you want can be not fast! Usually my preferred option x

Thank you Bridget! I did feel better. I was better focused after that too and had a good end to my days work too! Not a bad result for taking just 10 minutes of me time! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜β€οΈ

Well done for getting out there and happy IWD! I know what you mean - I tend to think anything less than 30 minutes isn’t a real run (not least because showering and drying my hair takes longer πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)!

10 mins sounds good. Park run tomorrow and it will be a muddy one! Will take a lot longer than 10! Happy IWD!

Mummycav! There’s one thing I’m certain of, I won’t give up! When I started this programme, my car broke down and I didn’t have any way to get to the gym to continue with W1R2! I was planning to do this on the treadmill 🀐. But, then had to brave the streets or give up until I had my car back. πŸ€” I didn’t stop being a driver because I had no car! And the car was a right off in the end πŸ™. So good job, I found the courage to do it another way. New car now and I’m still running outdoors! Result!! πŸ˜†

πŸ€” I don’t stop being a runner when life gets in the way of running. I just have challenging times, like most human beings πŸ₯΄ and you know what......I know that will be ok! I’ll continue to gain from every experience too. Life surely is an adventure! πŸ€©πŸ‘πŸ½β€οΈ
