When the running gremlins are on your side for a change 😊

Rubbish day at work, really didn't feel like running and it was drizzling, but......

New running belt arrived yesterday, but that would still be there tomorrow.... Picked up a new Fitbit on the way home, hmm, new toy to play with but...... The icing on the cake? New running bra arrived in the post, and once I'd done contortions to try it on to check it fit I just had to go running didn't I? The gremlins were certainly working hard to get me out there tonight😊. Week8 run1 ticked off.

Well done you! It's a good excuse to get a few new toys. I've decided I'm going to get myself some running gear and a toy or two when I graduate.

I don't think I'll need a one of them but maybe some running tights. Obviously shorts to go over the top of them 😳

All I've treated myself to so far is a 2.5 litre water bottle to make sure I drink enough every day. Some new running shoes and socks.

Haha. So I'm not the only one spurred on by a new running bra :D

I totally agree, contortions is right! Blimey what a palaver!

At the end of W6R3 I discovered my old sports bra had a 20 minute support limit (although as I remember that did provide temporary distraction from sore legs at the time); the new one has coped with 25 minutes and tonight was put through the w8r1 28min stress test, which it coped with far better than my legs !!! :D :D :D

I had a garmin forerunner for my birthday from my son/husband and I love it. Son set it up for me 🙂 I have some outrageous running tights, black, grey and pink - I used to wear all grey when I started to 'Run' but I got to that magical week 5 run 3 and I thought what the heck so treated myself to running tights - no more hiding in the shadows now!! And I almost got stuck in a running bra in the M&S changing room, omg the most ridiculous item ever invtended, I eventually found one that didn't have the stupid racing back palaver, it's just does up like a normal bra but with super support!! 😊
