W7r2 early morning but already very hot in paxos

W7r2 early morning but already very hot in paxos

Quick update running family -- following the first ever run abroad on Tuesday I woke eager to go again today . Today my husband joined me too which was fantastic - very hot even at 7am --- hill climb for 15 mins made me nervous today --- lots of gremlins --- why I'm not sure --- maybe wanted it to go as well as last time !!!!!

Stiff talking to myself - 5 more mins warm up the hill and down we came - smiling at each other and breathing in the stunning views . Laps around the beach loop 4 times and we were already at 15 mins done 😜😜😜😜

Carried on down to harbour circuit - twice around this and we were done . I loved running with hubby - almost stopped at one point but told myself I would be cross and my lungs and legs ok it was just in my head . And there it was - both elated we had done it 25 mins running abroad - never ever ever would we have thought we would be doing this after only 7 short weeks .

Today's picture at 25 min point when down near the beach circuit

🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 buzzing now for boat trip to antipaxos
