Panther swim in the woods 😻

ju-ju- profile image

I’m normally an early morning runner but I barely slept last night so I left it till later after spinning ( which is a must on Sunday as buff Rob 😻 takes the class and shouts motivational quotes at us). My favourite is the three C’s - choice, challenge and change. He shouts it every week and it’s always a good reminder that we hold our own destinies.

It was pi$$ing it down all day and although I was tired I really fancied getting wet and really dirty in the woods for a mini adventure. So I did!!! I did a combo of run and walk and took the route that leads to an amazing view over the gorge. I jumped in the puddles head on, splashed and played and had some proper panthering fun. The woods looked so beautiful and the fresh air restored my fuzzy head.

So, if the weather looks bleak or you just don’t fancy it- go have an adventure and make yourself do something you haven’t done before.... dance, shout, jump in the puddles, wear something outrageous ( I love to do this), and have some fun ❤️

Happy Panthering

And looking beautiful on it, despite drowned rat locks. Loved this post. Would have been happy to follow suit, but I draw the line at slush and snow.

Looks amazing! You have such energy and a wonderful zest for life - very inspirational. Heavy sleet mist of the day here in Essex. Didn’t venture out as we already have one member of the family with a leg in plaster - don’t want to join them!

Love this, ever since The first post I read by you I knew I wanted to channel my inner panther. This post is what panthering is all about. 😀.

Lovely stuff! I ran on a trail for a bit on Saturday, couldn't believe how nice it was and what I've been missing. More of that I reckon :)

Thanks for the inspiring post!
