Hi Runners

Well itโ€™s been a few weeks since I last went out and Iโ€™ve only been able to take a quick look at all your running adventures recently. And I know there has been some fabulous achievements. Apologies for not sending congratulations! Youโ€™re all amazing!! ๐Ÿคฉ

Iโ€™ve just been through a very long โ€˜The Apprenticeโ€™ like recruitment process (4 stages, lasting over a month) and Iโ€™ve had to put everything into research and preparation. Itโ€™s been pretty exhausting ๐Ÿฅฑ. Unfortunately, I was pipped at the post to an internal candidate (some consolation, I guess ๐Ÿ˜•). Anyway, Iโ€™ve only gone and applied for another. Strike while the irons hot (ish)! ๐Ÿ˜‚ So, Iโ€™m not sure how much running will occur just yet.

But....I have been doing short daily exercises at home to keep myself fit and ready for the road ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ. Iโ€™m definitely not stopping, itโ€™s just that life is setting different priorities at the moment.

You know me...I could just say, โ€˜itโ€™s time to goโ€™ when I wake up one morning!! And I love that!! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ!

Until then...Big cheers to my VRBโ€™s (making up for those Iโ€™ve missed๐Ÿ˜Š) & of course...Iโ€™ll be back ๐Ÿ˜‰!

Happy running Runners!! โค๏ธ

Wow Fab, even though you were pipped at the post, thatโ€™s some achievement making it to that stage of the interview process. Theyโ€™re nuts, they should have picked you! ๐Ÿ˜…

As regards your running, youโ€™re the ultimate come back kid, so taking a bit of time to do other life stuff isnโ€™t going to affect your running when the time is right to return. We all look forward to reading your triumphant posts when you do! ๐Ÿ‘Š

Good luck with the next interview! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Shame about the first job Fab but look at how ahead of the curve you are when it comes to your new application. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป for that. I know that youโ€™ll be back because itโ€™s in your head now - youโ€™re a runner! Glad that you touched base though as we all miss your cheery posts. ๐Ÿ˜†

Thanks so much Sybilw!! ๐Ÿค— Yessss! I applied for that job just two days after finding out it wasnโ€™t me! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And it was the last day before it closed too. Two days later, I was discussing availability for the 3 stages of this job! ๐Ÿคฏ! So, a bit like running, if youโ€™re able to find the courage to keep going, something will change eventually. ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ

Good to hear from you! Sorry you missed out on the job but great to hear you're buoyed up for another new opportunity. Fingers crossed for you! Do whatever fitness feels right for you - sounds like you have a good routine. I've run very little but am concentrating on mental health and sleep and at the moment. Stay well... X

Hi Fabulous450 ...it so good to hear from you, I know you've had a lot on lately with worki etc, sorry to hear you missed out on the post you were going for but, just like with your running, you've picked yourself up, dusted yourself down and gone on to apply for another...things happen for a reason don't they Fab??? Their loss that's what I say!!! Taking a break from your running is right for you at the moment, you have enough pressures of life withpout that on top...but I do know that once you see the window of opportunity you will be back out there, enjoying your runs again and hopefully sharing them with all of us. Until then though, I am sure I'm not the only one who will take you out with them, come rain or shine...and we all wish you the best of luck with your latest job application xx
