Make room on the podium

Make room on the podium

Meant to write this yesterday but to be honest I finished my run...I said I finished my run... I did I finished my run....and then ate cake.

So I wasn’t going to share this photo but then remembered why we do this..it for ourselves.....all shapes all sizes and all styles. So here I am very hot very very sweaty (oh my god even had soggy knickers 🤭🤭😂😂) but happy and confident because I had finished W9R3. Done it. At week 5 I was seriously tempted to give it up but Laura in her calming encouraging style told me I could do it and I believed her. Thanks Laura

So for all the posts regarding what others will think this is me this is what I look like and you know what i will be out there again wobbling through town three days a week. So if I can do it and share my wobbly bits with the snails 🐌 so can you cause we are the couch 25k crew.

Gosh this has turned into a gush

Anyway thank you all. Right now I have more cake to finish and no one else in the house is awake!
