Not so pretty now eh??

Well that lovely new look didn’t last long did it?? 🤣🤣🤣 was still really chilly after doing my duty at the remembrance service this morning...was a really chilly one this year the wind was very cold!! But lots of layers so not too bad at least the rain held off. Was debating if I wanted to actually go out again in less clothes than before when was already cold but gave myself a kick and got out there...so glad I did! I have missed the outdoors so much the treadmill just does not do it for me but needs must! Decided on 25 mins to give the knee a try and all good...tiny twinges towards the end but made it no probs. New sports bra actually properly fitted for me at Bravissimo ✅ supremely comfy and no bounce!! New shoes ✅ felt really comfy too. Only down side...Dozy tart alert never actually started map my run ...am certain I did!?!?) but phone tells me I did 4K so still way short of the target but no rush...the snail 🐌 was definitely in evidence today but who cares! My lovely new shoes look a bit dirty now but just as it should be. What a lovely day to be rounded off by the chicken casserole that is in the slow cooker smelling yummy 😋 sorry for the waffle but was just so happy to be out running again!! X

A great run and nice to get the first bit of muck on the shoes. Too bad on the map my run, tech can sometimes be a real pain in the tush

As my Italian friend said when i was bemoaning the state of my trashed kitchen after a long lunch. She said it is not dirty, it is well used. and so your new trainers aren't dirty they are well used! and isn't it nice to be using them after the IC?

I bang the dried mud off. That’s it. The rest of the dried muck will fall off when I run again

If you want you could brush them with a stiff, dry brush such as a dry nail brush 🙂
