Birthday running!

I certainly wouldn’t have guessed this time last year that I’d be out of bed and going for a run at 7.30am on my birthday....but amazingly I am!!!!

Not only that..... but hubbie has just given me my presents and I’m now the proud owner of a new running top and wireless headphones 🎧!! How did that happen?!!

C25k is a truly amazing programme!! It has transformed me in so many ways. I started out last September having never run since school (30yrs+)... and here I am running!!! I’ve still a long way to go, but I’m now running for 30mins, I’m feeling fitter, I’ve lost weight and toned up, and my general well-being has improved massively!!! So for any doubters out there..... you can do this.... you really really can!

It’s February! Happy running folks 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️

Happy Birthday to you and how FAB you got up and went for a run! That cake will taste even better now. Am interested to hear how you get on with wireless headphones. My virtual present to you would be a foam roller - it is just amazing and helped sort my left lower leg issues.

(Was also out this morning and am back running comfortably for 25 mins 😁) Love it.

Enjoy your day, lovely gal xx
