W5R1 Done - it’s in the bag!!

Hello runners!

Woke up this morning feeling more like a slug than a snail (Oldfloss) and thoughts of having a heavy run! But, I dug out my bright green (Kermit the Frog looking) running top out of a range of sports gear bought many years ago, to ensure my wardrobe has adequate padding. A bit like Sallenson’s high-jacked sports bra, they’ve rarely touched the body for very long, but it’s comforting to know it’s there should you ever need it. Right you are and out you go!!

Got my random music selection on (sorry no LedZeplin 😉 Lol) and I’m off, out on my run in the morning sun! Just me and Michael hitting the road. Nice! I soon realise that I’m not a frog or a slug, I’m a snail!! Yaaay! Loving it! Loved it even more when he said the first 5 minutes were up, (thinking already?, not bad Fabulous.....not bad!)

I’ve now seen so much of my neighbourood that I haven’t seen in the 17 years I’ve lived here. I’ve done it! The mystery of W5 is over (or is it?😏) and I feel as though I’ve got plenty of gas in the tank! That’s truly amazing!!

As a bit of serendipity the car that got me out on the road, instead of the gym, was just bought and towed away this morning! It took me on a totally new and unexpected adventure and I have said farewell with much gratitude, as it has given me the gift of determination and resilience!! I’m feeling like a runner!! Yaaaay! We’re all runners! Let’s do this! 🏃🏾‍♀️🏃‍♂️ ❤️❤️

Don't mind her. She gets over-excited and still won't return my sports bra. I think it's the endorphins :-)

You can if you get it from a man! It’s allowed! Better not say that either actually! Let’s just be snails! Much easier! 😉❤️

No I’m not..but I think Sallenson is! Sallenson see what you’ve caused with your sports bra and mankini?! Do you want to reveal or keep the mystery going? I like a bit of mystery myself! 😁❤️

Well done! I started out with Michael but the last two weeks have been with Jo W as she chats more about how she used to hate running! :D

Lol! Michael would probably miss walking beside me! I can’t do it to him! 🤣! I do intend to try some other coaches after graduation to mix it up a bit though! ❤️
