*Aggrieved Muttley noises*


Whoever would have thought that I could feel peeved about NOT running?

Due to busy times at work, and various councils simultaneously deciding to install roadworks on virtually every road I use, I just haven’t had chance to get a run in since Sunday. I'm amazed at how much I miss it already.

Thankfully, I'll be working from home tomorrow (yes, that old chestnut), so am planning on spending my commute time on getting to grips with week 8 instead. Another reason to look forward to Friday!

The addiction is kicking in then! I used to be horrible to live with on my off day, so my mother always said anyway. Enjoy the run tomorrow.

Thanks 😊

Some might say I'm generally horrible anyway 😈


Aha!!! You have the running itch.......!!!!😁

I know exactly how you feel because this was me last week.....

The self-imposed break only makes you more determined......in my case, at least!!!!

I'm pretty certain you're going to smash it tomorrow!!!!💪💪💪

Go Ru!!!!😁

Thanks Hotheels 😊

First and foremost I just want to get out there; I can always claim it's a practice if it doesn't go too well!

You and think very alike......I'm very quick to egg others on but am always that much more harder on myself.

Having a fall back is good.....announcing your intention here is very good.....gives you that added push, as and when needed!!

I have no doubt you'll run like the wind tomorrow!!!!

You SO got this, Ru!!!! xxxx



Week 8 is awesome. You’ll love it and you’ve defo got the running bug. Have fun !! 🤛
