Well eventful run!!! Total 4.1miles! 3.5k run 2.2k uphill all the way walk home plus my 5mins warm up walk!! Not bad considering i fell in the first 2 mins!! Decided to try road as pavements slippy & road had black ice so fell with a clatter scrapped knee & all muddy!! So close to going back home but thought no keep going! &ignore the gremlins 😂 now ive noticed ive cracked my new phone!!!! Mmm.. & running supposed to be good for you😂😂on the bright side😂😂3rd run of week done!! Im awarding myself a medal for perseverance 😂x not sure how to get photos correct way round 😀But it was a lovely crisp morning "slippy " in gorebridge 😊Happy less eventful running 🏃 to everyone 😊
Watch out for black ice😱: Well eventful run... - Couch to 5K
Where do you live? It's beautiful
This is a photo of the pentland hills in Edinburgh my son lives down here so i always take my running gear with me when i visit as its nice to run here! Ok a lot if downhills but I still have to go uphill to get hone😂😂hence i walk most of it as not an experienced runner 😊
Well done, you perseverer you! Hope your knee forgives you.
Roll on spring though.
You certainly deserve a medal. As well as soak in a hot bath.
Hope it's just a graze and you've not pulled or strained anything.
I hope your next one is less eventful.
All the best.
Well done and ouch... falling on ice is not good.. I stay indoors when it is icy.. but the black ice is sneaky!
It got me after graduation and I ended up ice skating down the lane
Beautiful photograph too
O I was certainly shocked as road was black so I stupidly thought sun had melted the frost on the road! Lucky there was no cars coming as it's a busy road!! So I'm going to look at trainers that might be less slippery!! Though hopefully better weather this week! Pilates tomorrow inside😂😂
Yay you've managed your 3 runs! Well done! I have visions of you sliding like Bambi on the ice (you can tell I work with 4 year olds!). Those gremlins got a beating there, bet they thought you'd give up! My run was a little shorter than planned as I found my route took me in the midst of a 10 mile organised run lol! Even after 10 miles they were zooming past me! I lost confidence and my gremlins cheered as I stopped. But hey, at least I got out and managed almost 20 mins. Xx
Here Von 99 ever run is a bonus at this time of year so well done you!! Trust me think more dumbo than bambi😂😂😂 but I was so close to going home & I kept thinking this will make it 2 weeks of 3 runs ! So squashed the gremlins when I fell on them😂😂but I was chuffed with myself for getting up and continuing as it was still icy but I really watched where I was stepping!! Was glad to get home though! Vexed I cracked the screen on my new phone though! X
Ow!!! You poor thing Naughty sneaky black ice. Hope your scrapes heal up soon.
Well done for keeping going... I think I would have hobbled home. I'm dreading catching some ice...I fell flat on my back a few years ago in Durham in snow lol... On a hill someone had dumped an empty grit bag and I didn't see it cos if the snow on top and my feet just went and I slammed down on my back, no injuries thank God but apparently my head just missed a kerb so I got lucky.
Oh Well done you for carrying on ! Icy here too first thing , so I didn't venture out until dinner time.
Glad you enjoyed it in the end and I hope your knee is okay . Beautiful photos xxx
Well done on getting your three runs in - way to go! Oops re ice, hope you're ok and just a grazed knee, even though that sounds painful (I would have probably laid there and cried!). Beautiful pic btw. Oh and well done on squishing those gremlins! Went out myself today - much more successful than last time, but only two runs this week
Ouch😬 Phones are expensive😬😬😬😬
At least you're ok😀
I know but you right I could have cracked bones which would have been lot worse!!!!
Thank god for the nhs😉
Hopefully the weather will start to warm soon, like you say, at least it wasn't a bone😱 Good luck with the next run and hoping you have better weather😀
When we had black ice last week, I decided to run on the grass. The park is only a minute away, so I gingerly walked there and then ran around the park. Mind you, it did get boring after the fourth lap (it's only a small park), but at least I was safe from ice.
Gorgeous pic! Hope you're ok after your fall, you did well to carry on.
Oh dear Pc59, I have just found your post. Falling over can really shake you up and hurt!!😯
Yes , extra medal for your perseverance, you are a strong dedicated runner and not even black ice will foil your run ..😊xxx
Glad you are ok, please be careful and sorry to hear you cracked your phone. Peskey Gremlins.😉
