Worst run yet..!!


Well, W3R2 done! Definitely my worst run, for several reasons!

Firstly the cold wind in my face was horrible tonight. Then, my battery on my phone was low so I couldn’t play music as i didn’t won’t my battery to go part way through the run. Then to top of a boring cold run, it went dark very quickly as I was running along a trail, so had to take a short cut to head back up to the main roads, just so happened that the short cut was up a cobbled incline! 😳

But.... I lived to tell the tale and feel proud of myself for doing so (although that seems silly)

Lessons learnt, make sure I have enough battery in my phone and set off a bit earlier! 🙈🙈

Happy running 🏃‍♀️😁

Okay.. so you are not the US postal service.. but it fits:)


We run, we learn and we run again and learn again........hopefully something new each time.

Well done.


Well done! I find a buff useful in the cold air,on advice from others on here! Stops my wheezing coming on but would certainly help your cold face.

Stupid question.... what’s a buff? 🤷🏼‍♀️🙈

Not stupid! Buff is a brand name for a thin tubular neck scarf. You can also wear them as hats and headbands. Google it. 👍

Buff ordered!! Thank you xx


Be proud! Of course you should be proud! You're doing great, and you're sticking with it even when things don't go to plan👍

I plan my afternoon phone charging around the possibility of a run (yep, seriously). I can't imagine getting through it with no music.

Good work 👍😁

You got through a tough one. Well done on that 👍🏼. Lessons learned and kms in the bank.

Well done you did it that’s the important thing. 😊

Grit and determination got you through - nicely done - you didn’t give up and so you should rightly feel proud!
