Pleased but a bit deflated too ๐Ÿค”

I have just graduated โ€œhurrahโ€ I hear you all say because you are all such a fab group. However I had technical issues with my ear phones and couldnโ€™t hear anything. So my option to either stop and sort it or continue with no music podcast or Jo. So decided to run my usual route with just my gasps of breath and thoughts. I thought you can do this on your own just this once. Itโ€™s going to be special as itโ€™s your graduation run enjoy it. Well I did when it was over but because I couldnโ€™t hear anything at the beginning I set off in my usual place. Only to find at 10 mins in. I could very faintly hear jo which meant although I knew I had started before the 5 mins were up at the beginning due to the problems, she didnโ€™t, so when she said I only had 1 minute to go I had to stop ๐Ÿ˜ข. Needless to say I feel I cheated but know I didnโ€™t ๐Ÿ˜‡. I did keep saying to myself keep going but honestly I was so hot and bothered I just couldnโ€™t do another minute ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Anyway folks I did it after never having run in my life ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Congratulations. Tech or no tech you still ran for 30 minutes! I imagine it must be far harder to run without sound when itโ€™s become part of our routine, so actually your achievement is even more special. Well done!

NJGam thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป I hadnโ€™t thought of it that way. Yes it was much tougher just listening to myself breathing/gasping. Having said that the wonderful spring smells were a delight!!!
