Fabulous450 Out on a Muddy Morning Run ❤️


Hi Runners

I’m sticking to the plan and I’ve been out again today. Back to the morning run to avoid the faff. Running with the traffic is not my favourite thing to do. Driving in the traffic to do the run has “no” all over it! 🙅🏽‍♀️, so I went to the little park nearby. It feels a bit repetitive there 🤪, but it’s the better option. 🤔 ......I remember when that park looked huge, at least it did for running! 😅

Well....due to all of the rain 🌧 there’s still pools of water along the path. Unfortunately there are also pools in the grass that I thought I’d run onto to avoid the big one! 😲......nice try 😂! It was a very muddy run indeed. Note to self..... “Got to stop putting on white socks”!

But, as long as I keep going out, I figure I’m getting there! It’s all done for today!!

Happy running Runners! ❤️

🐖 would be happy there. Well done for getting out there! Sounds like a good place for interval /mud restling

Thank you!😁 🤗 At the moment it is! 😂❤️

Staying vertical must be a challenge but probably a good workout for the core!


Definitely stop with the white socks 👍

Well done for getting out there.

Thanks Maddee! 🤗 Yes... the socks have certainly taken a battering recently! 😂 ❤️


You’re really back with a vengeance - I’m impressed! Rain, shine, faffage none of it can hold you back now. I didn’t get out last weekend and I’ve got a stinking cold so this weekend looks unlikely at this stage. Never mind - I’ll be back. I’ll just think of your determination.

Ah thank you Sybilw! 🤗🤗 I’ve got the determination bit going on. It’s still a bit of a mental challenge if I’m honest, but I keep posting as a way to keep me going. Thanks to you all, I’m still on it. 🥰❤️


Well done, running is amazing even with mud and puddles

😁! It is WillowandSola! Thank you. I am definitely getting some new running experiences in. 🤣❤️


Hey a run is a run Fab, dirty white socks or not! Good for you sloshing around out there. 😀 It’s so lovely hearing about your many runs this last couple of weeks. You’re really getting out and smashing them all. Good for you! 👊😀❤️

Keep it up Fab, it’s clearly working! 😀👍


White socks look much better with mud splatters! Another run done... another smiling Fab at the end... great job.

Thank you! 🤗

Well, I’m doing marvellously with that new look then! 😂❤️


Dye the socks mud brown : )

Congrats for getting out there whatever weather wants to throw at you

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to backintime

Thank you 🤗 The mud has dyed them pretty well backintime! 🥴! I now have running socks. 😂❤️


Once again Fabz 👏💪👊💕🦋 Woo hoo!! Well done xx🦋

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to Flaraflarkin

Ah thank you Flar! 🤗 It’s not quite a flow, but it’s happening! 💪🏽🏃🏽‍♀️🦋❤️


White socks. Black socks. You need to clean them anyway. Mud spatter makes them look property used.

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to Katnap

Thanks Katnap! 🤗😂 Yes they certainly have been used!❤️


Well done on your muddy puddle run

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to BaddieThePirate

Thanks BTP!🤗 I think I’ll have to leave the little park alone for a bit now. 😂❤️

Well done muddy fabulous going great. 🏃‍♀️

I’m on week 9 now for the second time and planning to ride my bike in the rain today just got to sort out the waterproofs ☔️😃🚴‍♀️

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to snailface

Thank you snailface!! 🤗🤗! Now you’re really putting me to shame....biking too! 😉I like it! And good on you....brilliant! 🤩! Well done!! 🙌🏽 Get those waterproofs on and enjoy!! 😆❤️


Isn't the weather just awesome for running right now 😳😂...well done for getting out there regardless 🏃‍♀️👍🌦

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to Run46

Thank you!! 🤗 Oh it sure is 😂! I definitely need to give the park a miss for a bit. It’s a bit small for running and the path now has a few mini pools along the way. The grass is super soggy too. I had better leave it alone. 😆❤️

Run46Graduate10 in reply to Fabulous450

Sounds sensible, unless you fancy a paddle before your run 😉

I applaud your determination Fab!! After putting weight on this week I dragged myself to Parkrun this morning, kicking and screaming!! Last night I was definitely doing it, then this morning changed my mind and said no, then changed it back whilst out walking the dogs but now I wish I’d stayed in bed!! Just didn’t want to be there this morning, and it didn’t have anything to do with the rain or like you the puddles (although it was a chance to try out a new pair of waterproof socks I got recently from Aldi!). I didn’t enjoy it and it felt too much like hard work, but yes, at least I did it and not spend another Saturday curled up on the sofa, lol xx

Fabulous450Graduate10 in reply to JanB76

Aaah Jan, trust me I’ve been in a very similar place! 🤗 So massive well done for going out there today. I know what it’s like to push and hope for some adrenaline and after run glow to flow..... and then it doesn’t! 😕! But Jan, I’d still say stick with it. Today was the first day that I didn’t have to do the self talk!

So, we are in it together Jan and we can do it! I bought a dress today that I really like and I’d like to feel a little more glow when I wear it, so there’s another incentive!

You’re amazing as you are Jan! Blow the thought of the extra pounds. It’s history! Today forward is what counts! 😉 Be easy on yourself and just do a bit for fun, because you can! 🤩 and let us know how you get on! Thank you as ever! Always here to cheer you on too!! 🤗❤️
