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 πŸ˜‚ 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. πŸƒπŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’¨ that, and I obviously needed to look like a knew what I was doing πŸ˜‚

  • 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!


    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!

  • ... you are very funny!

    Pikkie of my outfit.. I have two arms and two legs...:)


  • Actually rather fab and I love the pose. Empress Purple❀️

  • Pose..????I was two foot in the air :) I had to do that jump three times before Mr OF got the pikkie!

  • Loving the co-ordination, definitely Empress Purple as Jancanrun said πŸ‘πŸ»

  • Thanks, the turquoise really brings out the colour in in my cheeks 😊

  • Great stuff. Love the shoes...

  • 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!

  • Oh normal people, they are a tough audience.... I am thinking face by Dulux possibly 5k pink with hair by scarecrow.... but good luck with it, on holiday double celebration I am thinking

  • Niiice! πŸ˜€

  • Loving those shoes, but then I never could resist an Asics! What model are they? My trails are Fujitrabuco, yours look similar.πŸ™‚

  • These are the Venture 6, very comfortable, going to use them for trail walking on holiday too.

  • Love the trainers. I wanted to put a pic up of mine but technology is not my friend. Week7 R2, wow you're almost there.......

  • 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?

  • Just did W6R2 this morning. Yes, I too still find it hard work but we will both get there. :)
