WK 6 : R 1 (Take 2) πŸ˜‚ Tickety-Boo

Hey folks

Well, I was due to run Wk 6, R 1 yesterday evening, but time just did not permit. Shame, because it rained too and I like running in the rain πŸ™„

Anyway, I took the advice from those suggesting it was best to go from Wk 6, R 1 again, rather than from R 2. So I did this run this afternoon. My blisters hurt, but I noticed a quarter way through my run, that they rubbed more so when walking, than when running, so that was good 😊

I do hope MarkyD agrees with my attire today, for what you can see in pic, haha. I wondered after my last post whether you thought I only had blue trainers, but I also have pink ones and those are what I wore when I wore my pink top in my last post, lol. I haven't shown my pink trainers though in any uploads, but I aim to please and I'm glad you're keeping me on my toes MarkyD! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€— Still waiting for a couple of new tops...so watch this space, lol.

Think I may need to do leg strengthening, as they seem to tire more quickly than my breathing does. Any advice is gladly welcome πŸ‘πŸƒπŸƒπŸ‹

Thanks lovelies!

well done and love the top and trainers. I am still in grey and black, trying to hide I suppose. I find socks very important to prevent blisters, sure you have lovely ones!

Onwards to the rest of week 6

Thank you KoKo30 😊

The bottoms are new, Karrimor Lite Capris Β£8 in the sale 😎 The top is an old one about 18 months old in my procrastinating moments of whether I should keep fit or not, so I bought it just in case πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I LOVE your your outfit. I've found spinning has really strengthened my legs and helped my running.

Well done!!! And I love those pink trainers! Are they asics? I can't remember what ones you said you prefer?!

Do you have the extra comfy running socks? I found they really helped when I could run, and I was lucky enough not to get a blister! Shame I can't say the same for my knee!!😒

Keep on and you'll be at week 9 very soon!! 😲😁😁x

Awe, thanks Lisa. Yes, both the pink and blue are Asics, though different engines in them πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚(oh I found that funny then haha), I mean in terms of that the pink are Gel Contend 4 and the blue are Gel Galaxy 9. Totally different fit, though just as comfortable. I think the Orthotic insole makes a difference in pink ones and they were about Β£20 on top of trainers πŸ™„ The gel bubbles are really soothing.

You'll be there before long, just get your knee sorted. The thing is, is that these injuries take a while and can be quite infuriating. Fingers crossed it won't be long for you now. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ x
