Really tough day...mentally drained by the time I got home...dodgy head, did i feel like going out for a run? Hell no!! Am I glad Mr P persuaded me to go? Hell yes!! Felt do much better just being out in the fresh air..also doing steptember with work...we have to to 2,000,000 steps between us this month so walks at lunchtime too, so good active day. I love this programme!!! 😊😊

It’s such a great way to get rid of the stresses of the day! This is why I’m an evening runner... well that and I like my bed. Good job eating out there and doing it.

Yes I thought so just took dog for a nice long walk instead! Back to it tonight!!

How many steps is that per person? Sounds like you’re well on your way and well done for powering through on an off day!
