Officially a runner πŸ˜€

Those of you ahead of me will know that means I have completed run 3 of week 6 🍾. This weeks music has been pretty good in my opinion and this morning it was all I could do not to bounce as the beat was reminiscent of my Saturday evening partying! I picked up the pace for the final 60 seconds as Laura suggested and finished on a high. When she told me I was officially a runner I whooped so loud I startled a blackbird out if the hedgerow πŸ˜„

  • Good effort you runner you. I also spooked someone this morning made the milkman jump he nearly dropped his empty bottles.

  • Oh man, you live somewhere that has real milkmen? And bottles? Jealous. Much! :)

  • Just because I live in village does'nt mean we are totally out of touch with civilisation

  • Oh hope you didn't think I was being negative. I'd LOVE to live in a village where there were milkmen. I haven't seen a milk float in years. It's all plastic cartons where I am and go get it from the local supermarket :(

  • I know you weren't its just some people ie my kids think a village is somewhere you go to retire and shrug off your mortal coil

  • I live in a village too and we still have a milkman but he was about 10 minutes ahead of me today. I might try waking him up next time πŸ˜€

  • Ah, poor blackbird!

    And well done, great isn't it?

  • It feels brilliant. I'm still smiling everyone is going think I'm a bit potty today πŸ˜€ Maybe got that a bit wrong - pottier than usual πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • Yeay! That moment is amazing!!!!

    Well done RUNNER! :)

    Hope your Birthday bash was wonderful.. which shoes did you wear?

  • Both ! I started with pink ones, changed to one of each for about an hour then the blue ones until I just had to dance in bare feet πŸ˜€

  • I am in awe of the fact that you can dance in high heels!

  • As are many. It's a sign of a very mis-spent youth πŸ˜€

  • I thought I had a misspent youth - I was clearly deluded! (although I did pride myself on being able to run down hill in heels, don't think I could do it now!!)

  • No - dancing in them is easy by comparison. I thought the girls who wore trainers to get to the office in the 80s were wimping out. I used to bus hop into the City in my heels - never mind power shoulder pads it was all in the shoes for me πŸ˜€

  • Yay go you! It's a fabulous feeling isn't it. I really did enjoy week 6 after my nightmare week 5. You're going to love week 7 I'm sure. :)

  • Congratulations. With that title you can shout it out to everyone. Just don't scare any more wildlife. X Enjoy the rest of the programme.

  • It's an awesome moment when Laura calls you a runner, isn't it?! Well done!

  • Congratulations! I think i'm missing out a bit by not using Laura (I use RunDouble) - I did w7r1 yesterday so am definitely a runner! And manofkent62 I live in a city centre and we have a milkman who uses proper bottles and who comes in from the countryside nearby. He delivers at about 4am though so I am unlikely to surprise him.

  • Congrats - what a great feeling :-)
