Beetroot is the in face shade this year.

Last 2 runs were in cooler weather but tonight's warmth brought out a lovely shade of beetroot on my face. That's wk7r2 done and for some of it it felt good. Went a different route and had road crossings to deal with. I pressed the button for the crossing and ran on the spot till I could cross. Must have looked a strange sight but didnt want to stop and spoil my run. Never thought I would say that before this programme.πŸš¦πŸš—πŸšš

Yes really not that many more to go. I am trying to think of some new routes to keep it interesting now I am getting further afield. Not sure traffic fumes were exactly health making tonight.

I'm proud to be so fashionable, with my beetroot face 😰. I try to pre-empt crossing roads, and I end up doing all sorts of funny skips and feints to keep moving between traffic 🚘🚘🚘

Gotta keep moving :)

These were those 3 in a row sets of crossings over busy road. But on the way back all were green which was nice.

It's a peril of urban running, isn't it? It's great if you can keep going, but the gremlins laugh when you have to stop/start.πŸššπŸš—πŸš•

I wish I didn't think it's a sign of lack of fitness for so long!

I used to think that, but my daughter is the same and she does all sorts of fitness, we came to the conclusion that we have an efficient heat conduction system that just happens to appear on our faces, and once it's there, it's there, so you may as well stop worrying about it and get on with what you're trying to do.........πŸ˜„

It is, it is the in colour, just like, slow is the new fast! Running on the spot, entertains the onlookers.. I do it all the time at the railway crossing.. the train driver even waves to me now!

Well done you :)
