W6R3 (nearly killed me)

You know by now I try to post positively, but the most positive things I can find to say about this mornings run were:

1) I completed it and live to tell the tale

2) When I paused to investigate an irritating itch in my sports bra (it was like a tropical storm in there!) it was a trapped hair from my head, and not the sproutings of a testosterone-fuelled hairy chest.

Off for a shower :o)

Thank you, I just looked at your posts to see why you're on the I/c, ouch! You poor thing, I'd be going nuts by now (humour me, I know I'm half way there already ;o)

Have you been following IrishPricesses posts? She's injured too so been posting about running or just funny running-related stuff, so go on, shake a leg and join in!!

Well...the most positive reply I can give is...

a) You did it

b) You are hairy-chest free

We all have these kinds of runs....as you know, I try and turn things into Pollyanna moments, ( reasons to be glad), but that is just me....

Anyway, your Pollyanna moment was... You are not turning into a Gorilla!!!!

Onwards and Upwards sweetie... I'm right here, giving you a gentle shove and a big hug x :)

Pam, remember progress not perfection

1. you finished it which is a victory in itself, this victory shows you can do it when you come up against other obstacles in the future, ( that's pure Buddhism thrown in for free :-) )

2. no comments re sports bras or hairy chests as this subject is wayyyyyy out of my area of experience !!

have a great day

Nick

Haha that's funny Pam. Those hairs get everywhere! As long as this run didn't kill you you can live to do the next one.

Thank you! It didn't kill me YET, there's still time, I am absolutely pooped tonight.

Love the hairy chest alarm! You always make me chuckle Pam. Keep running and keep smiling, it will all come together.

I was seriously worried the running had somehow made me more bloke-y and it was the start of mutton chop moustache and hairy chest, not an attractive look!
