What was I thinking!

I have just invented a new colour Ultra-Magenta, it goes some way towards describing the colour of my face right now. It's hot and stuffy (it feels like I am breathing marshmallows). So I decided it was time for a run 😱. I just ran 5K in 39 minutes 15 seconds πŸŽ‰ I know many of you out there would class that as a walk in the park, which it probably is for some of you, but it's my first time running 5K and I am ridiculously proud of myself. Celebrating with a jam donut was probably not the best idea but it tasted sooooo good ☺️. Ever onwards πŸƒπŸƒπŸƒπŸƒ

  • You should be really proud of yourself. (The doughnut sounds good....)πŸ™‚

  • It was sooooo good. πŸ‘

  • 39 minutes sounds a great time for 5K :)

  • Good on you!!

  • Yeay to the run... jam dough nut... hmmm! :)

  • There aren't usually donuts in the house but our son is home from university and, as an indulgent mother, the house is stocked with goodies.

  • I understand completely...you are entitled to your treatπŸ˜‰

  • Just like my wife's face at Parkrun running with 2 other ladies, they all finished together, and all had purple faces with purple t shirts, the ribena trio! πŸ˜‚

    tsk! tsk!

    About 220 calories in the doughnut, a good part of what you burnt off! nice though occasionally!😊

  • That's 220 delicious jammy calories !

  • Well done sounds like a very good time for your 5k. You earned the doughnut!

  • Thankyou !

  • Well done Bundoodle, I think almost everyone of us would class 5k in 39 minutes as exceptional :)

  • Well done, Bundoodle. Great time for a first 5k!

  • Bit hot for speeding about 😯 well done though, job done ☺

  • It's much cooler now but I am very glad I went earlier, I would not like to be running in the thunderstorm we are having at the moment 🌩⚑️

  • I am going out running soon. You know what's gonna happen don'-t you πŸ˜€

  • You may be taking a shower while you are running? β›ˆ

  • Be loud and proud - you did well.

  • That is fab. It seems like you and I are toe to toe

    I did 5k for the first time today too. See my previous post for my puce face x

  • Puce is the new black!

  • Brilliant Bundoodle. The first of many!

  • A 5k at 39min/km is just as far as a 5k at 15min/km, so don't talk down your achievement, Bundoodle. And celebrating with a jam donut sounds like perfectly acceptable way of marking such a momentous event. Well done :)

  • Thankyou! Today it's back on the healthy (healthier) eating but the donut was fantastic!
