Hello my running family. I bet you thought you'd got rid of me?! Well, sorry, I'm still here and ready tell all about my life after C25K!!
First run today without Mr Smooth and it felt very, very strange not hearing his voice at intervals throughout the run but I managed although I might have to listen to him once a week so he doesn't think I've abandoned him!!
The run felt good and despite being at school today and walking 9,321 steps(today is 'walk to the swimming pool' day) before I had even begun the run, it went well!!
A different day weather wise, cloudy ⛅️ with the odd spot of rain ☔️ in the air but it was pleasant and the colours in my local park are amazing 🍂🌳🍁
Only slight hiccup is the little bridge that takes me over the stream has been closed off for repairs so I had to adjust my route fairly quickly in order to find myself on the right side of the park!
Crisis averted, so I continued on with my run, listening out for the very automated voice of the 'Map My Run' lady telling me that I had completed 4km. That spurred me on to complete the 5km as I was hoping to take part in my very first Parkrun on Saturday. Sadly, I won't be able to do that as our local one is not being held as there is another run taking place and it's not open to the public 😢
So 5km completed in a slightly quicker time that the last one so it's a thumbs up 👍🏼 all round but here comes the best bit......my daughter is coming home from uni on Friday for the weekend and I cannot wait to see her 😊😊
Happy running to all the starters, the people who are half way through and the ones who are knocking on the graduation door and to all those who think that "I can't possibly get off the couch and run and ENJOY it", I'm telling you, YES YOU CAN, SO GET OUT THERE AND TRY IT!! 😊😊
See you later, my running family 🏃🏻♀️🏃🏼
