Hi Runners!

A catch up to keep the mojo flowing! πŸ˜‰πŸ€“!

I’ve started a new plan on my app and today was a benchmark run! I haven’t done one of those for a loooong time! 😯

It’s a 7 minute gentle warm up, three minutes of flat out running and then 5 minutes cool down. I added a brisk walk to warm up beforehand too - back to the old school way. I’ve got a bit lazy with that! ☺️ (Figured I might need it today! πŸ˜†)

I listened to some motivational YouTube, while I kept a strong walking pace. πŸ’­ I think for a moment that my legs look like 2 chicken drumsticks on the move! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™„Luckily, 5 minutes soon passes and it’s running time!

The sun was shining early this morning and I can say that I had a good time today. The road was quiet and I had a good work out run! (Though my headphones did quit on me during the cool down jog! πŸ₯΄! I had to laugh! It’s mandatory! And it really doesn’t matter!) I did it! I’m still on the run and it feels like there’s more to come! πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸ½

Happy running Runners! ❀️
