Happy Easter Everyone ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ

Just Completed my early morning run. Was out for 5:20am, armed with my nurse torch in my pocket (I know very silly!!) dressed in my long running sleeved top, shorts and favourite blue running jacket with my hood up!

Started the C25K app as soon as I got out of the door. Stuck to the main roads, which are well lit. It didnโ€™t seem as dark this morning and off I headed to Clapham Common. Had forgotten I would be running 8 minutes so didnโ€™t have time to think about it, just did it and it felt brilliant. There was no one else on the pavements so I enjoyed singing outloud (badly) to my playlist which I loved (just using the 30 minute free Spotify option at the app at the moment so a bit hit and miss and something random starts playing!!) but this morning great song after another:

The Shallow (favourite song at the moment) Rocket Man, Shine, Gold, This is me, Letโ€™s here it for the boy, Iโ€™m Still Standing and The Greatest Showman. lol so I managed to run and sing (badly) this morning and run for eight minutes, so I think I will be able to manage a conversation when running with someone else, something I have yet to do yet!!

So this is me! Run โœ… breakfast โœ… put a wash on โœ… post โœ… and now off to work feeling amazing, you really canโ€™t beat that early morning running feeling!!

I wish you all a Happy Easter ๐Ÿฃ filled with lots of chocolate and hot cross buns!

I have seen this sign a few times out on my run and it always makes me smile and think of the last time I took my Great Nephews to Wimbledon Park and I was calling them my little puddings which they thought was hilarious reeling off all the puddings they like and have at nursery (there were lots)

Happy Running

Love that sign, good early morning run again for you, I didn't realise you were a nurse, one of the best jobs in the country at the moment, I wish you a Happy Easter, don't eat to many Hot x Buns or Easter Eggs.

Not so sunny today where I live in Central Scotland, cloudy but dry, today in London you are having the non stop sunshine we had yesterday, on Saturday Glasgow and Central Scotland were the sunniest place in the UK.

You are an inspiration, I loved reading that post, I could feel your energy and determination......I donโ€™t know how you do it....youโ€™re a real superstar ๐Ÿคฉ.

Great playlist too, I hadnโ€™t heard The Shallow, Iโ€™ve just listened to it, itโ€™s a lovely song.

Iโ€™ve never run with anyone else either, but I have plans to later this year ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Hi Coach,

Thank you for your kind words, belief and support, it means a lot. I feel so lucky to be back out there even at 5:20am, and am feeling so excited to complete Week 5. Tuesday is going to be the big one!!

It is such a beautiful song, I really love it! The film A Star is Born is really good and worth a watch.

Lol that is so funny that you have not run with anyone either, enjoy!

Wishing you a Happy Easter and enjoy your next run x โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ

Youโ€™re doing brilliantly! Iโ€™m not sure I qualify to be considered your coach, but Iโ€™m happy to accept the role ๐Ÿ˜

It is a beautiful song.

How funny is that, weโ€™re both solo runners, youโ€™ll be the first to know when I go out for a run with someone else and how I got on, Iโ€™m looking forward to it๐Ÿ‘

Happy Easter to you too, next run is imminent....watch this space x

Well done! Do you know Iโ€™d completely forgotten that my 20 year old self tried to run on Clapham Common once, badly! I had to go to the osteopath later in the day๐Ÿ˜†. There were no such things as cell phones back then, yet alone sensible running apps!

Congrats on a great run and having the place all to yourself, you definitely set yourself up for the day ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š.

That's early! The birds are only just waking up then and the quilt has me firmly in its clutches.

Given you're running in London area, is there special significance in the Welsh flag in the title of this post and the previous one?

I really admire your ability to get up early and run, we didnโ€™t wake until almost nine both yesterday and today, while out today I was saying good morning to people until I realised it was 1pm Itโ€™s so lovely though to know you are out there and enjoying your runs, loving that playlist too some of those were on mine today and yes i sung badly along, poor Willow x

Aww thank you Sola not something I would ever have thought I would have enjoyed to be honest but I seem to be Sb early bird!! Lol we are a great bunch of singers!! Haha

I really am Sola I was so sad when I couldnโ€™t run. It is 3 months today since I had the virus I can start testing this week but nervous about doing the first one praying I donโ€™t show up as still positive as I know you can. Hope you and Willow have had a lovely Easter together are you back to work tomorrow? I am going to treat myself to a new running too for Easter and hopefully completing my 20 minute room.
