First road run in a year😱


For the last year (since moving), I’ve been trotting round my garden & doing a few park runs. Well today l went for a “proper” run!! I say a run, there where plenty of deep puddles & in places, running water on the road. I covered 6.58km. Not fast but throughly enjoyed it. Beginning of a new chapter me thinks. Happy running folks

You picked some serious weather for your run, what a woman! Glad you had fun

Thanks grumpy old girl (gog). Feet were soaking wet but others wise l enjoyed it!!


You did really well running that distance after not having a proper run as you say for a year. Here's to lots more😊

Thanks Buddy!! I’ve been running round my garden regularly (3x5k) a week. The gardens about 1/3 acre. There wasn’t a challenge to it. Think I’m ready for the magic plan now😱

I do too😊

That’s very impressive! Well done and what a grim day. Glad you had some luminous clithes to balance it out

Thanks Couchpotato2. Just took a storm to get me out there 🤔



Enjoy those road runs, I do pretty much all my running on roads, not so slippy and muddy although with all that rain looks like you need to be careful on yours. you must have an enormous garden if you’ve been running round it. Happy running

What was that big puddle like in the distance? A swift leap over it, a dodging bounce off the hedgerow it was it just, oh sod it let’s just get my feet wet?!

Defo”oh sod it” moment Dalmorangie 🤣🤣there where plenty of others to wade through too. Glad l went when l did. The weather has been horrendous since👍



A gentle 6.58K in the countryside sounds lovely...glad you enjoyed it.

Perfect way to keep warm on these damp chilly days too 😁👍
