Week 8 ended on a high...

What a week W8 has been for me!

Today, my sports bra broke as I was leaving (safety pinned back), app went off or froze (timed 28 mins on phone) swallowed my chewing gum (but lived) oh and it was still dark as had to walk dogs before work.

I made myself run uphill to slow down after Wk8R2 so was much slower at the start this time = much better πŸ˜€

Hehe you are a brave lass running in a sports bra held together with a safety pin, that could have been a trip to A&E lol

Here's hoping week 9 proves to be smooth running for you (excuse the pun) x

When I say safety pin, it was an industrial thing like a kilt pin - desperate measures at 0645!

It sure does, Oldfloss, and I have always said this. No idea why I set off like a racehorse on Tues - the new trainers made me go faster and I was loving it until I realised I had 18 mins left. then I just went to pot.

Haha, broken sports bra! Fair play for persevering and using a safety pin. Sounds like you still had a great run. Well done πŸ™ŒπŸ»

Kilt pins rock! - a beast of my childhood- not only on the succession of kilts, but also to pin a string handle on our Christmas stockings!

Well done on a great run despite assorted impediments. πŸ˜„
