Hi Runners!! πŸ‘‹πŸ½πŸ‘‹πŸ½

Well....the wind has been pretty harsh here since last night and there’s no sign of it letting up! But...LEJOG is on and every little counts. So, I got out there for a short 20 minute stint today. 😁

It’s fair to say that the wind was not blowing in the right direction and it made it hard work at times, but I figured it must be good for me.....somehow πŸ˜‚. That said, it was still warm, the rain wasn’t too heavy at the time and it didn’t spoil the enjoyment! So, all in all, a nice run in the fresh air. My biggest August discovery is that when it’s raining, I get to run everywhere, without seeing a soul!!πŸ€“...And I come home very satisfied that I was out there, doing my thing!! 🀣🀣

On my virtual journey, I was still in Penzance yesterday after my walk ☺️, right near to the primary school and I won’t be much further after today, but hey....every little counts! πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜β€οΈ

Nice 20 minutes stint for you today FAB450, that little bit nearer JOG by the day, still in Penzance, you don't need to run but you could go for a 6 miles walk sometime during the weekend.

Thanks so much AlMorr! πŸ€— I’m in the early days and I’m not a big planner ☺️. Just going to take it as it comes for now. The main quest is really going out regularly again for this month. LEJOG is definitely added motivation though 😁. ❀️

As you say - every bit helps. Slowly chipping away at the distance there Fab450! Well done you for getting out there despite the weather. You've really got the bit between your teeth now!

Thanks so much Fionamags!! πŸ€— It’s got me happily going out that’s for sure. Even if it’s 5 minutes, it’s better than zero! 🀣🀣❀️

Brilliant run, lovely when you get freedom to run where you want without avoiding others. Love the picture- as a quilter I totally agree. Happy running πŸ€—

Thanks so much Grannyhugs!! πŸ€— It was the perfect quote as the LEJOG is for a year. Never made a quilt myself...but I think I’m sort of making one now!! 😁😁❀️

A little 10 miler on Sunday will have you well ahead 🀣🀣🀣

Great running in the storm... fingers crossed for calm conditions come the next one.

Hey UNM!! πŸ‘‹πŸ½πŸ‘‹πŸ½

And πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!! πŸ€” that lovely 10 miler might be done πŸ€”πŸ€”....but not on Sunday!! I like the encouragement and the faith in my capabilities though! πŸ˜‚!

I might surprise myself one day mind! πŸ˜‰β€οΈ

The main thing is you will reach your goals in your time. LEJOG will be a good carrot (or chocolate bar 🀣) to have you upping the distance steadily... it’s very doable even if starting from zero on day one, and yet challenging enough to be fun!

I think you’re right!!😁 I am having fun too!! 🀩❀️

Running in the rain does make you feel alive! 😍 and you're that bit closer to JOG now πŸ‘πŸ˜€

Thanks so much Beatlesforever!! πŸ€— You know...I’m genuinely just enjoying doing it every day. I can’t ever justify even a walk as being too much really. πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ˜β€οΈ

You're a brave soul, Fab! I've been avoiding the rain (gale force winds & an enormous hill in Wales). Slow stitching and thinking about what you're creating, putting yourself and your love into a quilt is very therapeutic. Such a great quotation! Isn't this what we do with our runs - show some self care, absorb ourselves in the moment of a run? I'm going out for the first time in a week today and will run with this in mind. πŸ™‚β™₯️

Ah Slinkymalinki!! πŸ€—πŸ€— Thanks so much.

As there’s always walking to turn to, it does make a difference and I can feel achieved every single day.

Enjoy the run!! Here’s a big cheer in advance too!! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ€©β€οΈ

You got it!! Bit by bit. As I like to say, 'You can't get from A to Z without going through the alphabet.' And this journey is your alphabet so keep going and achieving because each mile is a bonus. Each mile is a mile more away from zero and less from the total. I like to think of you as 'Fabulous on Tour' πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thanks so much!!πŸ€— I’m really enjoying it and that’s my only criteria to keep going! I’m listening to podcasts on my walks, so it’s really enjoyable too!! πŸ€“β€οΈ
