W7R2 - new shoes nicely bedded in.

W7R2 - new shoes nicely bedded in.

The youngest was up when I arrived back this morning and kindly pointed out I was a lovely shade of red 😂 I replied smugly that this is in fact the official C25K colour, thank you very much! This was my third run in my new trail shoes (i honestly did not choose them because they match my t-shirt, just luckily co-ordinated)...they have been well and truly bedded in now, the gel in the soles is amazing; 25 minutes and no calf pain. I use to suffer with this so bad when I did aerobics and was starting to get twinges on the earlier runs. Just need to build up my stamina now. Started off a bit quicker than usual cos Edna the dog down the road was out on her walk and was barking at Alan so I needed to get out of the way fast. 🏃🏻‍♀️💨 that, and I obviously needed to look like a knew what I was doing 😂

Very sassy.. well done you! I love coordination:) Very well done on your run to:)

I had my fave one purple leg running tights on this morning and matching top... love the shade of your top...

Great shoes.... they make such a difference for off road running don't they..? Go you!

PS

Well done on the smart answer to offspring.. you are right, it is the 'in' colour :)

Your running tights have just one purple leg? And your top matches it so old floss you cartwheel on ice and you have a leg where an arm is supposed to be..., I truthfully am in awe of your guidance as a three legged one armed lady!

Paula you know we should have our own shades of red colour chart, officially sanctioned by C25K. Then we could choose our own depending on fitness and mood. Love those shoes. Well done on W7 progress close to the shiny happy badge now

Thank you, 🤞 the final week is when I'm on holiday and I want to keep going so got to face running in front of people. Dog walkers don't count as we all look like we've been pulled through a hedge backwards in the morning!

Thank you, getting there bareliz but it's not easy, determined not to give up though, just putting one foot in front of the other. Where are you on the program?
