1st Post Graduate Run...

Hi everyone...

Hope you all are well and still running.

Well I went for my 1st post graduate run this evening. Gave myself a few days off since my graduation run on Saturday due to the pain in my right heel but I felt ok this evening, plus I was missing running.

So I went for a nice 30 minute run. Nothing more, nothing less. Just a nice steady run.

All went well. It was strange not hearing Mr Johnson talk to me but I'll manage without him somehow. ☺

My pace seems to be increasing steadily every kilometer that I run nowadays, so that 5km might not be too far away. Not pushing it though, it'll happen in due course.

Well nothing major to report right now but I did say you all wouldn't get rid of me and so here I am.

Hope you all are still managing to run at some point even though the weather has been very warm. That's why I went out this evening around 9pm. It was nice and cool by then.

Anyway happy running everyone.x

Congratulations Donna! Can’t wait to have the post grad experience, but I’m enjoying MJ’s dulcit tones. I think I’m going to miss him quite a lot, but we’ll see. Enjoy! ❤️

Thank you. Yes it was strange not having him talk to me after our 9 week relationship and informing me of the time remaining. Think I might rerun the last run of week 9 sometimes on the app so I can have him in my ears sometimes. 😊

Phew!! I was starting to wonder where you were, hon! Glad the foot seems okay. Good that you're reconciling yourself to Post-Michael Stress Disorder. Even better that you're relaxing into real post-programme "Know what, I'm getting a bit quicker! Kewl" territory.

Don't be a stranger. We all love Donna!! xx ❤

Hello my dear....

Yes I'm still here. My foot isn't 100% at all but I managing with it. Rubbing, rolling, icing, stretching you name it, I'm doing it.

I'm not going anyway so you all are stuck with me for the time being.x

Thank you. Yes I agree with you on that aspect. I have the Samsung health app talking to me every 1km anyway so that's ok for now. One of these runs I will actually try without music too and so how I get on.
