This graduation smile is staying with me a loooonnnnngggggg time πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»πŸƒπŸ»

I've done it yeahhhhhhhh!!! πŸŽΆπŸ…πŸΎ.

Went out early this morning for a run along the riverside with my super-fit 29yr old son, and ....... I DID IT ! I did everything Laura asked of me! AND.... I also ran a couple of extra minutes because I was so close to running 4k and I was totally in the zone (as they sayπŸ˜ƒ). I'm not fast (my boy runs 5k in under 21 mins normally) but I am very very very happy.

I intend to slowly grow the distance to 5k over coming weeks, but would also like to increase speed so I'm heading for Stepping Stones, Speed and Stamina....already downloaded the podcastsπŸ‘πŸΌ

I've celebrated with a new running top, pretty jade green rather than my usual 'let me hide-away' black. Then, joy oh joy, presented with a bacon sandwich by my wonderful husband. Way-off my healthy eating plan but such a rare treat these days, delicious and an absolutely perfect way to celebrate my achievement.

Happy running all and have a terrific weekend πŸΎπŸŽ΅πŸ†
