Happy Boxing Day Everyone 😊

Today I did my long run... the one where I get my husband to drop me off in the car (somewhere) and I run back home 😊

Husband : So, where do you wanna go today, babe?

Me : Oh, I don't know? Just drive about 6 miles out πŸ˜‚

Husband : OK πŸ™„

So, he drove and he drove and he drove! 😳

Husband : Is here OK? πŸ€”

Me : Er, yeah? πŸ˜’

Wearing my new running watch, new running top and a cheery smile, we kissed goodbye and he drove back towards home and the open fire πŸ”₯

I pressed GO on my watch and jogged it back home through the fog and drizzle. There was something quite special about the atmosphere. Not being able to see more than a few feet in front of me was advantageous, as I couldn't see how steep or how long the road was! 😁

I thoroughly enjoyed that run! When I got home my new watch told me I'd run just over 10 miles (16k) and my husband told me he was making lunch and my son was running me a bath 😍

So I'm feeling grateful for being fit and healthy and grateful for having a loving and supportive husband and son ❀️

Enjoy your runs wherever you are and whatever stage of your journey you are at! ❀️

Congratulations, so it was a case of running home for Christmas, no, sorry, Boxing Day, I suppose its a bit of fun running in fog, not sure how that worked out, he drove you 6 miles but on your watch, when you got home that read 10 miles, perhaps you ran back a slightly longer route.

Thank you AlMorr ❀️

Ah, I told him to drive about 6 miles and he drove more than 10 miles πŸ˜‚ Very naughty! But I quite like the idea of not knowing how far I've got to go! X

That sounds a fantastic idea, I'd not thought of doing that. Hope you enjoyed your very well deserved bath and lunch!

I did enjoy lunch and bath, thank you Mum22boys ❀️ It was only avocado sandwiches, but I made the bread before I went out this morning πŸ₯‘πŸžπŸ˜‚

Ah, fabulous! I can't remember the last time I bought bread? Both my grandmothers used to bake their own bread and my 82 year old dad still does too 😊

Well you have to try out the new running gear / tech. You certainly did that.

Congratulations 😁😁

I love that you do this! Very well done on your 10 miles, it’s a fabulous milestone (all 10 of them πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘) sounds a gorgeous run!

I’d love to ask my husband to drop me off somewhere but I’m just a bit nervous of where he’d actually leave me πŸ™ˆ

🀣 We always make a joke about where he's going to leave me, which always makes me laugh when he drives away waving πŸ˜‚

I had no idea how far I had to run home 😊 But the fog made it quite mystical and the drizzle refreshing 😊 xxx
