I fell out of my trainers and back onto the couch for about 12 days!!!😱😱 Turning 50 and comfort food!! I read that if I set myself a daily ritual it will create a routine and become a habit..... So am going to make it a daily one and use it for walking on my non-run days as well 😊 It feels good to have this "feel good" feeling again ~ πŸ€—β­οΈπŸ’« And it feels good to be back on here 😊

Yay! 12 days isn't long really. Glad you made it back off the dark side of the couch 😁

You're right, in the grand scheme of things it's not a long time ~ trouble is I know how easily I give up on things πŸ™„

Yes me too. If I head back to the couch might never get back up!

Welcome back! You've gotta know you'd miss this too much, right! Good idea on the walking - I'm terrible on rest day, I know I should be strengthening but always seem to duck out.

Rest days have pretty much meant no exercise for me so walking is probably what I'm most likely to stick to 😊

Happy belated Birthday. I was wondering where you had gone. Must have been a very big birthday cake if it took 12 days to eat.

Welcome back old girl. Tighten those shoe laces and get back out there

Just remember how amazing we are, anyone can sit on a couch

I’ve missed you and I’ve been quoting your β€œit is what it is” left, right and centre.

Good to have you back in your Running gear. No more relapses!

Enjoy the next run x

And happy birthday. Hated the thought of being 50 but the sun still came up. You’ll be fab.

Aww thanks Jay66UK 😊 Pleased you've been quoting in my absence 🀣 It's true though, I fell out of my trainers and now they're back on - and that's life, everything changes moment by moment 😊

Happy belated birthday Flara! If it’s any consolation, I’m finding 50 much nicer than my 40’s and this programme has a lot to do with it. I don’t think it hurts to have a slobby time occasionally anyway. Enjoy and welcome back πŸ€—πŸ˜€πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈ

Thanks TailChaser 😊 You're absolutely right, if I'm too strict on myself there's a risk my teenage rebel will emerge and say "hey I'm not having this!" and I'll opt out ~ here's to being occasionally slobby! πŸ™Œ

Happy burfday! I'm a few years behind you, but only just lol! 12 days is nothing.... a couple of break in runs and you'll be back where you were in no time....
