A kick up my own butt βœ…

My own gremlins (disguised!😎) had already told me that it was so hot out there at 9am that it was too late to run today, blah blah blah! I've been heading this way since that rotten run 2 days ago ~ a slippery slope 😳 Then I thought well Fabulous450 is out there doing her Park Run - so I'm just making excuses about it being too hot! Remembering last night's words from my own behind-the-scenes PT (you know who you are!) I got out there and aimed for a 4K - my manageable (just!) distance ..... I dug in and managed a 4.5k! Yay!

My butt has been a bit sore for two days but it is getting better, I went a 3k WALK this morning just in case it got bad again, hope to be back to the runs next week when hopefully I'll be able to RUN a full 5k.

Eeeek I didn’t go! I went out for tea instead! But I felt very guilty! So today I am going on a 20k(possibly!) bike ride and back to running tomorrow! I know it sounds daft but although I’m loving this beautiful summer it has mucked thing up from a running perspective! I think it’s the lack of sleep bit mainly! I’m so tired I just want to sit in the garden!πŸ˜„πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸš΄πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
