W5r2 tough for slinky..πŸ˜…

Out in the luvly sunshine slinky was OK on the first 8min run but could manage only about 5mins on the next run before going to a walk, obviously the long break has taken it's toll, so she will do 5min runs for a spell...But we took in a 5k circuit also with the walking along with going up my steep hill which was knackering..😊

5 min runs sound just fine:) These things do obviously take there toll, as you say Dave...

You did a good circuit anyway and a hill!!!!! Well done Slinky! Stay strong.. Big Hug x

PS

If she gets tired, you can give her a piggy back :) x

Any run is better than no run Dave. Slinky is doing great, slow and steady will do just fine. Enjoy πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺ🏻

That all sounds good, some running, some walking, getting fresh air and sun with your partner, covering 5 KM, nothing wrong there. You're lucky to share your love of running, I'd love to get BaldyBoy off his bum...

Won't do him any good, too much sitting about!😬

I know, you know, he knows. Will he do anything about it? I bullied him to go to the gym about 3 years ago, these days he has so many aches and pains he doesn't go....yes we know what causes aches and pains like that....

He doesn't really have to go to the gym though, I do excercise in house..

Same thing really, he's just not interested. Frightens the crap out of me, he's quite a bit older than me too. You can't force someone though...
