I was a bit late off the starting blocks this morning, it was 7am before I got out of the door mostly due to tech issues 😬😬. Meant the sun was a bit hot by the time I reached the sea wall so this was a tough run for me. Am loving the new lidl gear though, although I lacked the confidence not to cover it all with my tunic.
Now I say mostly tortoise because I start and finish quicker than the bit in the middle. I set Runkeeper to give me my current pace today so I know this to be true, it's the overgrown section of path. That bit is tricky for a tortoise so the snail has to take over this section!
My slightly quicker tortoise pace meant I was still running when I hit the steep bit of hill 😱😱 The gremlins gathered at my shoulder and then Rod Stewart came to my rescue as he sung "What a beautiful morning " into my ear and I thought yes it is and bounded up the hill for the last minute. Well maybe not bounded but I found a bit of bounce !
So that's it week 8 in the bag and just another 2 minutes of bounce to find - I'm sooo excited 🤗🤗
And the icing on the cake - while I was out hubby completed his first week 1 run on the treadmill we have been loaned 👏👏. We are a C25K family now 😎
