Graduation run - I kicked it's butt😊

So today dawned - i slept in - got in car and no flipping petrol ( as I no longer commute 70 miles a day - I've become a bit rubbish at remembering to top it up)

Not in the best mood by now and already running late and had to factor in a petrol stop - brain starts telling me to go home - it's not going to be my day - too many things going wrong already.

Gave myself a good talking to - this was it - this was graduation day and I was going to blooming well do it😊

Got to parkrun about 10 mins before start - frantically did some brisk laps of car park to get my legs warmed up and headed to start line.

Had set the alarm on my phone to go off after 30 mins so I'd def have my run 3 done. Told the tail walker that she must not let me stop jogging till it went off lol

When it did - I kept going and going - maybe I run better when I'm crossπŸ˜‚

Finished in 48 mins - and I ran all but 3 of them - so 45 mins of running - have no idea how that happened😁

So yeah grad run done - absolutely chuffed beyond belief - and don't even look that haggard in the photo😊

Happy running all xx
