Friday feeling

Torrential rain this afternoon, sat in my governor meeting with the head teacher, got a running date with my friend at 4, thinking how can i ask him politley to hurry up as he doesnt know i am a secret jogger as have not totally come out of the proverbial closet yet. Pondering what has happened to me, i want to get home get changed go running and get soaked. I dont recognise myself !!!! How on earth will he believe me. It is friday what has happened to wine oclock jog o clock has taken over my brain!!!! With a pause in the conversation, i lunge straight in, laugh at myself and drop my new hobby into the conversation. I am not greeted with with great roars of laughter quite the opposite he loves to run to especially in the rain. We share some thoughts and i set off ready to go for it. And yes we got soaked right through to our drawers, as me mum would have said but we have now completed week 2 and cannot wait to start week 3. All be it with trepidation as 3 mins seems a long time but hey we never thought we would get this far and we have. Mind you if we finish week 3 nxt friday we have promised ourselves one wine in the pub we pass on route. Hail rain or shine we r hoping to be in that beer garden. Wine oclock/ jogoclock has abit of a ring to it . All you newbies keep going !!

It's mad int it. Like we've been taken over by aliens. I was out getting drowned as well but loving it as I skipped down the road with my music blaring in my ear'oles

Keep up the good work GM. Go steady and you'll be fine


Sounds as if you're loving it! Keep going!


Thanks for your comments. Am loving it but feel a biy sad today as no running now till monday.. Instead got up clened up done the washing made low fat / calorie chili and veg curry. And drove the hubby and kids mad due to the amnt of excess energy i now seem tl have. Had a bit of a trying on session as have a 21 st wish it was mine and a girls night out in liverpool in june. Aim is to lose 2 dress sizes and by the feel of the clothes this morning think have definitley lost 1 size from my rear end. So outfits sorted from those that had gotten v tight. So wil! Now use some of my energy looking for new shoes. Keep going folks cannot believe how good i feel at this moment in time. Heres hoping i can sustain it


Did i just say i feel sad cos no running till monday. Omg. i really have lost the plot!!!!
