Love hearts and fishing!

Love hearts and fishing!

I love to run in new places and explore. It’s never about distance or speed but for the joy of running, exploring and the heightened senses you get from running in a different place.

Today was the last run in London and this is what I encountered:

People fishing in the Thames...?!!

Aeroplanes taking off ( my run took me past city airport).

A man having a pi$$ under the flyover ( this wasn’t the best bit!!)

A man in a van grinning at me 😁

A very strong smell of love hearts....?!!

Waving to the people in the cable cars.

Something about what you see, hear, smell and feel when running that you just don’t get anywhere else..

In the downside I think Viktor ( my Garmin 225) is dying. Any recommendations on my new one much appreciated!!

Happy Panthering

  • Glad you've enjoyed London Ju! People can be friendly and there's surprisingly plenty of places to run, especially along the water :)

  • It's fab I really enjoyed it 😎

  • Cool, glad you've enjoyed it. I'm about to do my Thursday 10K stretch around Battersea Park where last week several park attendants waved and smiled at me. Nearly freaked me out. Smile at me? ME? Lol London can be like that too ;)

  • Hi what a great post 🏃

  • Thankyou!!

  • You look amazing!! Go you!!!

    Great post.. taking every little bit in.. wonderful!!! I was there with you.. closed my eyes when we went under the fly-over though :)

    Thanks Ju x

  • Hee hee so did I 😱


    You deserve it.

    What a great place to run. All that scenery to distract you, and you're looking strong. Are you still managing your running streak? How many days now?

  • Yes, I have lost count I think it's 280 and a bit more..l really want to get to a year... hopefully 2 😉

  • You got the 235? Is it good???

  • Yes, I have the 235. Fantastic / bombproof. Very occasionally loses the connection to my iPhone for syncing, but 5-7 day battery life, great selection of running data and optical HR. I cannot think of anything that I want that it does not do. I love getting the notifications on the 235 from my phone - who's calling, next appointment, even when my son posts to our family WhatsApp group from Cardiff Uni.

  • That’s very impressive!!! I’m not sure I want my kids bothering me. I often get texts saying ‘mum I want my breakfast’!!

  • I thought that was your place Ju. It looks a bit like your harbour area, ish

    You can get new batteries for some garmins I believe. There is a thing in Garmin support. You type in model number blah blah and it says yay or nay to battery replacement. In my case it was a nay 🙄

    Running in pastures new always heightens the senses. 😃🏃‍♀️👍

  • I will have a hunt.... Thankyou!!!

  • Brilliant! Great place for a run. I love the idea of people waving from the cable cars. When I run under the bridges along the Tiber I like to look up and wave at the people above. I am sure they think I am slightly insane.
