Pending penultimate run

Today should have been run 2 week 9 but due to a sore throat and feeling tired, I decided to defer until tomorrow. Feeling quite sorry for myself (yes, I know I need that big kick up the backside) I was contemplating taking tomorrow as a further extra day when 1st born came home with some kick a*se new running leggings for me........they are fabulous and fired up my motivation to get out there and pose, er, I mean, run a bit in them :D So my alarm is set for 6am tomorrow morning when me, Michael Johnson & Peter Gabriel will be strutting our funky stuff and we will be fantastic. I will post an update with a photo of said leggings post run tomorrow - you can't wait can you? lol

Me! I can hardly wait.

Perfect antidote for a sore throat, and a sure cure for a bad case of the woe-is-mes. Run, run!!

I will see how I feel in the morning. It is a sore larynx which is one of my weak areas when I get a cold; my last 2 runs have been slow & slower but it means I get around the route safely; time for speedier runs when the virus has shuffled off. I was quite chuffed with myself today when, running late (no pun intended) for a hairdressers appointment this morning, I left "son in law to be" to lock up the car in the car park & I ran to the hairdressers & ran half way up a very steep hill before having to slow down to a walk. Two months ago I would have never have contemplated running up it 😁 I made it to the hairdressers before time too. So glad I invested time in me .

How exciting for me to read "update in about 40 minutes" then notice "posted 39 minutes ago".

I'm on drum roll duty now...!
