Hmmm so many questions 🤷🏽‍♀️

Ibot
Ibot

Ok I’m an inquisitive person (obviously female)

What do you listen to?

What do you bring with you? (I’ve a bag with pup treats, 💩 bags, toothpaste? Not sure why think it’s because I’m to lazy to take it out 🙄)

Do you watch runners and think, hmmm one day 😊

Do you talk to yourself? Or in my case the dog. 😉😉 (normally yelling to get out 🤬🤬 way) 😂

Wishing for rain

Wishing for sun 🙄

Wishing to be better 🤷🏽‍♀️

I do wish for the world to be flatter ?

Sometimes music in my ears, but recently I’m using guided runs from Nike.

I take as little as possible... phone, car key, done, oh... and sometimes the daughter!

Not got runner envy now I’m doing it, but I used to.

Talk to myself a lot out there, usually out loud.

Rain on run days, sun on rests!

Love the view from the hills, will be able to run up them one day!

Love the fact you have a plan!!

I’ve tried to bring kids but they have excuses like school 🙄🤷🏽‍♀️ Honestly 🤪

I have a master plan for a drunken marathon, but after that I’ll be happy with 5k mostly... I do have a need to run up and over Kinder Scout though.

My daughter saw we looking at running for a year and then suddenly asked when we were starting. She’s ahead of me now as she didn’t start with old tired knees!

Hi Ibot how are you feeling now, all good?

I’ve been alternating between three Spotify playlists depending on mood:

Run ’N’ Bass 170-175 BPM

open.spotify.com/user/spoti...

Indie Kicks 150-155 BPM

open.spotify.com/user/spoti...

Run Punk, Run! 160 BPM

open.spotify.com/user/spoti...

Run ’N’ Bass seems to be the go-to favourite so far.

I watch ‘proper’ runners all the time and want to be like them.

I have no idea how you run with a dog… but I suppose you are a female and able to multitask.

I just take running clobber, my phone, headphones, a key and that’s it.

Try and stay pretty quiet, don’t want to go waking people up along my route.

Will go out in rain, sun or mostly darkness.

I live about half a mile away from the beach, it has a perfectly flat path that goes on for miles ...BUT I HAVEN'T RUN IT YET!!!! I am going to save it for my graduation run, its so tempting to do it but what a finish it will be if I save it for the graduation run.

Hey chicken

Well the 🤮 has turned into a 🤧 so being I’ve got it 😉

Ooh I’ll try your tracks tomorrow

Omg I’d love to run near a beach 🤔 maybe near one with a beach hut that serves cocktails 🍸😂😂 ok so I don’t drink but hey you have to start one day 😳😳

Hidden in reply to Ibot

Oh dear I hope you shift it soon.

Yep we’ve got plenty of beach huts down here on the sunny south coast and honestly I would love one... But if I had that sort of money to buy one I’d probably get a campervan, £10,000-£15,000 seems an awful lot of money for a shed 🤣 maybe one day when that lottery ticket comes in🤞

As long as you understand I’m winning it first 😝 obviously I don’t want money to come between friendship 😂😂 but 😇😇 😘

How’s your running going? I was a little tempted to run today but as I’m not back in work until Friday I want to annihilate week 3 this week, although a little scared about it (no emoji to represent my fear 🤷🏽‍♀️ Maybe 💩😂😂)

Hidden in reply to Ibot

Yes that’s fine, as long as I get one of those nice big ‘Euro millions’ wins you can be first in the queue 😎💵

Running is going well thanks, I’ve got W4R1 tomorrow and am looking forward to it! Honestly you crack me up!!! 😆 be positive! The program works, you’ve heard what the graduates say if it’s too hard run slower, run slower than walking if you need to - just do it there’s nothing to be scared of 💩👻! You’ve got the right attitude when you say you want to annihilate it 🔫 - that’s the spirit don’t doubt yourself Ibot 👊

I listen to playlists from the 80s on Apple Music reliving my youth while I run.

I daydream a lot like what I can be......painter, chef, pilot, astronaut.

What would life be like if I took different choices.

I have ran a 5k, 10k, 1/2 marathon and a full one over the years so don’t get runners envy as much I know how hard it can be. But I’m now back to basics and enjoying running again.

I like to let my brain switch off and just wander.

Omg I would love my brain to switch off!! It just never happens!! Like never!! Like never ever!!

Love the 80s idea I’m sure I’ve leg warmers somewhere 😂😂
