Yippee 😊 First Real Run Since Graduation 🍾

Hi All,

At last with toe strapped up I went for a tentative jog and nervously watched for a stitch to creep up on me 🙄 But 10 minutes a bit of a cramp but just breathed deep and it went so by 15 minutes I was feeling great. Weather was colder than normal and overcast and a breeze which was all good...

As I ran I was thinking of My Stunning Granddaughter and the WhatsApp chat we had on Monday Morning... I told her She was Beautiful and She said 'How do You know?' And I replied 'Your Mommy's Daughter and She has the magic pixie dust that makes her Stunningly Beautiful' She came back with 'Awesome thanks pixie dust I'm sprinkling it on You did it work?' I said 'Oh no Darling I'm to old..' A instant reply 'No Your Not 😡!' I then said 'Oh wait my eyes are Beautiful' to which she then said 'Haha it did work... Yay Grandpa You have Beautiful eyes!' That Stunning Little Princess made me run faster and with a wide smile on My face😊 .

Completed the run 5K in 39 minutes which is strange as the one the other week where I walked for 10 minutes! But then remembered that I had started the app Yesterday and then had to search for a headband... So that would account for the difference.

So got home and started my abs excercises as they say You should do this after a run as to burn Fat you need Oxygen and this will be My new thing to add to My run days...

Well at least that is one run down and hoping that is the IC put away for a bit but will wait as to see what happens after My appointment with the Podiatrist... 😢 But what ever happens I will be back out Tomorrow for run 2 🏃

  • Well done OldPapaBear , hope the ic is well behind you now

  • Good to hear you're back running :)

  • Such a heartwarming little story. We could all do with some pixie dust once in a while - young or young at heart! It reminds me of how we're so quick to shoot ourselves down but would never dream of speaking to our friends in the same way we speak to ourselves in our heads! May your days be filled with copious amounts of pixie dust :D
