Week 5 run 1.

I have never clicked on the smiley face on my app before a run. At best it has always been ๐Ÿ˜. But I was feeling quite optimistic about this one. I felt like this one was in the bag!

First 5 mins- I felt good! On came the one hit wonder by the Veronicas โ€˜untouchedโ€™ brilliant!!

Did my brisk walk and even overtook a dog walker who was ahead of me. (He may have been weighed down by his poo bag or maybe Iโ€™m awesome ๐Ÿค”)

Next 5 mins - uh oh....panic sets in half way, which always affects my breathing. But just in the nick of time plays Portugal. The man โ€˜Feel it stillโ€™ โ€˜oooh wooo Iโ€™m a rebel just for kicks yeahโ€™ get in!! Followed by MJ โ€˜bet you didnโ€™t think you could do this 5 weeks ago?โ€™ Cue the BIGGEST grin ever!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ He is very right. No I really didnโ€™t.

Last 5 minutes- THE HILL. Crap! gets me every time! But again saved by another cracking tune. Florence and Machine โ€˜Dog days are overโ€™. That definitely put a rocket up me ๐Ÿš€ wheeee!!

Ended my run with a ๐Ÿ™‚

Smiley face rating? Be careful there... thatโ€™s the slippery slope to being a runner!

I love your name ๐Ÿ˜ is there a story behind it?

I was always so well behaved as a kid I actually had to ask for a detention to see what they were like. The teacher refused so me and a friend walked in to the classroom backwards, claiming to be backward children. That got us our detention. I love being called Baddie because it's so ironic. I'm the goodest baddie there is ๐Ÿ˜

And I like boats. I used to drive a tug boat for a job.

Haha!! I love that story! I only ever had detention twice in school. Once for chatting, and once for answering back! I often get called cheeky hmmm ๐Ÿ™ˆ seems to have followed me around as an adult.
