Week 2 Day 1 Gremlins

Week 2 Day 1 Gremlins

And so I get to Day 1 of week 2 and the gremlins have hit ....who are the gremlins? well firstly it's my friend (soon to be ex-friend if he carries on trying to sabotage my efforts :D ) - "you don't want to go out running, it's too cold, too dark, too late, too anything" then it was that I had washed my running gear and the only thing I could find were my running shoes....that's when gremlin number 2 struck as he whispered in my ear...."oh pack it in, do it tomorrow when you've found your kit, we could stay in, have some dinner" did I listen? nope, I went hunting through the laundry (yes it was washed & dry) found my running gear, switched on my program and went out with my daughter for D1W2 . Yayy, I ran further & wasn't tired out but felt really good for sticking with it and here's our photo at the end of our walk/run today. (PS how do you stop your photo going landscape?)

  • Gremlins... well, we normally ignore them, which they loathe.. or squish them.. with every step of C25K..but..not sure if you should squish your friend!

    Very well done.. not easy to start at this time... dark and cold... I graduated just before Christmas last year!

    Great photo, landscape or not..keep posting! :)

  • Most of gremlins have been non-human so easy to ignore. Hope your gremlin gets onside with your running and gives you encouragement next time.

    Keep up the good πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ running. 😁

  • well my human gremlin is going to get his walking boots on soon & walk with me :)

  • I'm no expert but I download photos from phone onto computer. There is usually some software that loads up when you open your photo up. It will usually let you rotate it to make it portrait and save it.

    Glad to see you left your real life gremlin behind. hope not your friendship ? Probably trying to be protective.

    Running is probably not the issue to lose friends over. I'm sure they will understand eventually.

    Well done for getting out there today. I nearly did the splits today but managed to recover. Didn't do as much running as I would hope but happy that I got out the door.

    Happy new year and happy safe running.

  • Well done on dealing with the gremlins and going on to gave a great run.

    What sort of phone are you taking your photo on? I know how to turn them on an iPhone, but if you haven't got an iPhone - I haven't got a clue. (It will be in your photo editing somewhere:)!)

  • The photo is potrait on my phone & computer but turns when I post. It isn't a big problem 😊

  • My friend is still my friend. ..he doesn't do running so thinks my commitment to getting out is mad. We haven't fallen out 😊😊

  • Well done for beating those gremlins (real and imaginary!) - I find that once I have decided I am going out, it takes quite a lot to stop me!!! Sounds like you are the same :) Keep it up!!

  • Hi Cookie, yes once I decide to do something nothing will stop me. 😊
