Wk7 R2...today was a good day 😀

This morning I headed out to run R2 Wk7 wearing my brand new running gear from my husband and son for Mother’s Day...oh how times have changed 😁

The first 5 minutes was a nightmare as I kept loosing my trousers, I must of looked as if I had ants in my pants as I kept awkwardly adjusting myself 😬 who knew there was a drawstring inside that I needed to tie 😂 once I had tied my trousers up securely I was able to focus back on my run and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I ran through muddy puddles, enjoyed the scenery around the country park and kept singing out loud to my music I was listening too...opps!! Today was a good day and really hoping R3 on Friday will be just as enjoyable (without the trouser issue 😂)

Happy running everyone!

Ah yes the secret drawstring - I have a pair of Norah Batty’s that no matter how hard I look don’t appear to have one. It’s a pity no-one tells you these things... like flat seam leggings, so you not end up with sandpaper like chafing..

Well done you on doing that run

I thought one pair of mine didn't, it was odd as they are Saucony. Then I found a little pink cord in the middle at the front inside. Happy days!

Hi KattyG Jancanrun if you can make a small hole on the inside of your waistband and thread something through you have a drawstring in your waistband.

I have done this with two pairs of my tights (one pair has a flat trainer lace in them and the other has a round walking boot lace). It's a cheap and easy fix. I did do a sort of blanket stitch around they edge of the decent pair but didn't bother with the Aldi ones but both have stood up well to wearing and washing.

Okay that’s a good idea, the Norah Batty’s are very embarrassing but too new and too expensive to chuck...

I was so excited my husband and son got me some Addis black running tights with a coral coloured stripe down the legs, coral running top and a charcoal running zip up hoodie...I already had coral coloured running shoes so I’m now very coloured coordinated 😂😂😂 my face is always beetroot at the end so even that blends in 😂

You’ll be running into Wk7 before you know it x
