20 mins! In a row!

Hello runners. I was supposed to do w5 r3 at the weekend but then couldn't get any child free time. The kids then both rather inconsiderately got a bug and have been off sick.  My heels have been rather sore anyway (pf) so they probably did me a favour.

It's my day off today, kids are back in school so finally managed to get out there and do the much anticipated/ feared 20min run (in sun and hail!) So happy - I couldn't have gone an awful lot longer, but 20 mins sounds very cool. Ive been very enviously watching others ticking this run off, so virtual high-fives all round. Fab.

Well done 😊  Resist the urge to run on.  Save it! 

Good luck with the next run.  Easy does it ☺

Well done.  My boy is 16 now, and I absolutely relish my new life where I can pretty do whatever I want without having to arrange childcare.  Raising kids makes you appreciate the little things in life doesn't it - like a childfree half hour run.  Reasons to be cheerful part 10,987!  :)

It's also made me appreciate my partner! He's away for a couple of weeks so I can't get out for my early runs. Hats off to the single parents!

Ha haven't seen that one.  I just have the NHS Podcast.  I've a love hate relationship with Laura.  Sometimes I wish she'd shut up and sometimes I can't wait to hear her voice!
