Into week 5 now

Gosh that was a hot one! W5 R1 down. It was hard work that last five minutes and for the final minute I had to run along Streatham High Rd with bus stops full of people. Tried to speed up a bit for that final 60 second stretch (vanity only) but I did it and now I'm sooooo proud of myself. The majority of the time I was a very hot snail though!

Last week I had an early morning hot air balloon high over south west London which was quite beautiful and gave me something to focus on and distract me.

I must say, when I was struggling this morning I thought of this forum and all the wonderful people here who are running along with me - metaphorically of course!

And on to the next one 😉
