Get Away By

Get Away By

Week 3 Run 1, it’s lambing on the farm, normally I’d hitch a ride, side saddle of course in back of hubbys quad bike but not today ..isn’t it your W3R1 he said ..well yes I replied. Well get away by he said which basically means get running to the sheep to a sheep dog. So me and the dog set off hubby in hot pursuit on the quad bike. Ran the w3r1 to the far field caught this young lady lambing, helped load her into the trailer and she has had 4 beautiful little girls

Oh gosh - I know how busy (over worked) teachers are! Important to make the time for the runs though, it's your time. The C25K programme is quite good as it packs a lot into 30 minutes! Good luck and happy running. x 🏃‍♀️

He is great although I could have chucked him off his bike and kidnapped it half way through the 3 minute bit !

- and so life changes!! That's lovely, have always felt envious when hear people talk about lambing, no matter how exhausting - but I live in London.

One benefit of living in remote area other than the scenery is you don't actually run past people ..just sheep x

Wow what a very talented lady you are!! I saw your post from a few days ago and felt really indignant and cross with those bunch of meanies!! So glad you are shoving it right back at them! Keep going! I’m loving your story and you know there are so many people on this forum cheering you on! I’ve just followed you and hope it helps to keep you motivated. Enjoy! Xx

I know I was so taken aback by the attitude of some people ..ive decided you can't win .. they comment if people are overweight or unhealthy but then knock you back when you try to get healthier .. but I am determined and I will show them. Thank you for your support
