Wait for it, drum roll ! I " ran" 2.86 km this am !!! Week 6 R3, 25 minutes,but think I ran for 30 as Laura and spotify both quit on me so ran solo. I was using an app that just says stop start, your halfway etc, when she said your halfway I muttered get lost, Im further then that, was very tired at this point but found a second wind AND I DID IT !!!

I t was such an abysmal start with all technology quitting, plus we look after our 1 year old great grand daughter , Scarlett, Mondays so OH was doing his grandman bit whilst I ran, ( bless his dear heart ) but I did have that on my mind. I met a very old lady with her dogs, saw her puzzled look and said dont even ask, met several more dogs and owners ( one I am sure was a man eater ) just kept going with a cheery wave ( aye I can run and wave now !! ) and said keep em on the leads until Im gone !! Through some muddy puddles just like Peppa Pig and suddenly she says you can walk now, but I didnt I kept going to a certain point in the run and I havent stopped grinning all day. Begginning to feel like a runner at last. When Laura use to say people need not be able to tell if your walking or running if on the other side of the hedge, I use to think they will think I have stopped for a chat !!!
