Miracle !

Had to duck off up a side path today because I was about to OVERTAKE someone ! Me, going faster than someone else ! Still can’t believe it ! Ok, so it was the world’s oldest and slowest dog walker, complete with old and dithery dog, but even so. . . 😄

Yay way to go. My first run I was getting lapped in the park by all these young, skinny, fast kids and not sure if it was genuine or sarcasm, but one girl said "well done" each time she went past me. Give me a few weeks (lol) and I'll be lapping them (when the pigs fly maybe)

Good afternoon ButtercupKid, nice to hear from you again, yes I am sure you are so pleased to have overtaken someone on one of your runs. This afternoon I am going to measure out with my phone a few possible 5k routes that I can run, although today I'll just be walking, I can think of about 5 routes but so far I have only measured out two. Which proves like you that both of us want to continue with our running 🏃

You’re doing great, AlMorr. Have you an app to measure the distance ?

Yes I do have an app to measure the distance ButtercupKid, I have just come back from the 5k walk I mentioned to you earlier today, I was just walking at a easy pace measuring the 5k distance so I would know exactly when I run where the 5k end was. The app I use is installed on my old Smartphone which I used today but when I run I will use Mapmyrun on my new Smartphone. I have just realised that I can choose from 5 different routes all off road near to where I live including one which is a officially recognised 5k route used for the Cumbernauld (the town I live in Central Scotland 13 miles north east of Glasgow) Christmas Cracker 5k held in December, it was on that exact course that I ran my second 5k in 33.40 last Wednesday. The app that I use to measure distances is "Run-Log. com" . I hope things are going OK for you.

Useful information - thanks for that. Yes, I seem to be out of the pit of despair I fell into last week and am making slow progress again.

And they had 8 legs compared to just 2 for you ! Truly awesome 😄

I got overtaken by 2 horses last week, and they were just walking!

In my defence, I was going up a steep hill, so was running slower than I can walk it!

Like I said, they have twice the legs 😄 I ran (I use the word in its widest possible sense) on an undulating path today and I swear it took an uphill every time Sanjeev said to start running ! Bah humbug !

Love that Ibot you telling us all that you overtook two standing horses, to make it sound even better those two horses you overtook were probably champion race horses.
