Just finishing my last 8 minute run and there ahead on the tow path was a guy from work. I did think about doing a u turn then thought.. he'll never recognise me all red, sweaty and no make up but he did!! πŸ˜‚

I'm getting good at ignoring those gremlins..this morning it was a sore throat lack of sleep and a stiff back..hit them all on the head and completed todays challenge with a big smile πŸ˜€ have a fantastic Monday guys x

Thank you shaky!! πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ‘

Yay you gremlin slayer you! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Well done on completing your run and for not bailing when you recognised someone! Not sure what I’d do - possibly turn tail, but I’m so slow they’d probably catch me up and pass me anyway!! πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Happy running! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Cheers Cheeky, I'm definitely getting braver at this running lark! But I reckon I brightened his Monday up seeing me trotting towards him πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Oh my, what a morning!!!

Well done on being a super-ninja dragon-slayer :-) I'll bet you anything that the guy from work was more than impressed with you too!!!

Oh no, that's rubbish. Well done for managing to run with that brewing, that really is mind over matter.

Rest up, feel better soon and practice some extreme self-care.

Thank you agelesslass!! πŸ‘πŸ‘

I know that feeling so good on ya for beating the Gremlins ( just remember never to feed them past midnight nor give them water,80s film reference lol).

It inspires those that are in the same boat too which is why I'm starting to love this community!

Keep on inspiring... 😎

Thank you agi74, I think the secret is definitely the support on here. I enjoy running/walking alone but it's the people on here that keep me going out for each run πŸ‘πŸ˜‹
