Doing week 9 in style😊

Got my new trousers/ top/ jacket/ snazzy water bottle for mothers day. Plus words of encouragement in my card from my kids saying keep up the good work they are all proud of me 😊😊😊

Ventured out in rain tonight looking like one of the pink ladies from Grease, didn't want to go but boy am I glad that I went!

Made it to 30 minutes and kept on running even when Laura told me to stop!! Only a couple of mins but it makes a change from me crawling along begging for Laura to tell me to stop! " Who are you and what have you done with my wife? " said my hubby as I returned on a high.

He tells me he's off to buy some trainers at the weekend as he wants to see what all the fuss is about.

Good luck to all for this week, weather forecast not great

  • That's great. Well done, and good luck to your hubby.

  • Thanks mummy brummy, am now humming grease tunes :) go you pink lady, sounds like a fantastic run, you're nearly there now :) x

  • Lovely post and so well done! Just two to go now. Hubby has got done catching up to do!

  • Hasn't he just!! He will be eating my dust lol

  • Well done you! Not only for your own achievements but for setting a positive example for your family. Before you know it you'll be one of those running families :)

  • Brilliant! So lovely that you have encouraged your husband to join in :)

  • I can already envision the scene of a family run; you in front, kids in the middle, and dad closing. :)

    Good luck with the last runs of W9.

  • How brilliant, well done you! I promised the kids I'd run with them at the weekend after I graduate (Whoop whoop!!) and they can go on their scooters. Might have to treat myself to some new running kit, I am feeling jealous of your Grease outfit!

  • Just need new shoes now but no complaints with the old ones really so part of me thinks why change just yet. Except they are blue. And my outfit is pink. Ah well, may get some for my birthday in April 😊

  • Just wish i had Olivia Newton John's figure to go with it lol

  • Aaaah mummybrummy, can just picture you in your snazzy new running gear... stunning. :)

    Wowzer, great run to start week 9 as well. You are going to graduate in style.

    Love that your hubby wants to get involved too...

    You will be able to pass on lots of advice and encouragement to him too.

    Those running jackets are a revalation aren't they.. so light and windproof. I love mine.

  • They certainly are. Up to now been running in hubby's high viz so it's nice to look and feel feminine and it's so practical too.

  • Wonderful - but think we need to see a photo :)

    Great that your kids are proud and you've inspired your hubby to have a go too - brilliant

  • Ooh no pictures yet. When the weight has all come off may post a before and after pic but not a during a way to go yet but loving the journey
