I said I was going to run today and despite that extra glass of wine that I would have been better without, I ran. Perhaps if I had not put it on here I may have wimped out.

I live in a hill place so decided I would rather go up hill first and then down on the way back. The first few runs were hard but much easier on the way back. So chuffed

Well done Molly for getting out there and doing the first run ... that's the really difficult bit out of the way. Now you've got to keep going and keep posting to let us know your progress, else we'll be round to nag you :D

Well done Molly. The first run is the hardest, from now on it's just practice. Good luck :)

Not much choice from here unless I drive and that just seems to increase the likely hood of me not going.

Thanks to all for the encouragement. Think I am going to be sore tomorrow as we have been cutting hedge today and weeding
