Yay! 4k!! We finally did it!πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸŒπŸŒπŸŒ

We reversed our route from last Friday, got dropped off by support vehicle, then ran! And we did it! 4k in 36 mins. Very very happy with that because my legs hadn't turned to jelly and it felt like I had a bit of energy left! Thankfully was a little cooler and there was some breeze at times. It was a beautiful evening, photos don't do it justice. Harvest has begun in Wiltshire.

30 min run planned for Thursday then 4k again on Sunday. Then on to 5k at last!!!!

We've had an interrupted time post graduation. Has slowed down reaching 5k. Mum has been in hospital with a serious infection after her 6th chemo. She's home now and is much better. I've been away for a week. My sister has been busy with A levels, and the weather hasn't helped! Onwards and upwards now. Park run planned for Sept before my sister's 50th!!

Well done Ang! It looks absolutely glorious. Sounds like a great run and with a little left in the tank at the end you’ll be hitting 5k before you know it. Hope your Mum continues to improve. 😊

I love Harvest. I'm a farmer's daughter. Harvest was a huge part of the year. Loved it as a kid. πŸ˜€

It was lovely this evening. Its a hilly area but the old railway path is reasonably flat, just a few short climbs!

Congrats Ang! You are doing great! Hope your mum continues to improve. How many chemo cycles left?

Hopefully none. She had a scan yesterday and sees consultant in 4 weeks. She may need radiotherapy but hopefully all is now ok.

That sounds really positive. My mum went through similar but couldn’t cope with the chemo and was taken off it. Take care. Xx

Well Done Ang33333 and sister. It sounds like you have had lots of things to cope with so it’s great that you are still trying to get out together. That 5k will come and I hope like me that you love your Parkrun experience .
