5k at last !!! thanks to the Flamingo leggings


Well I finally regraduated ( I did skip a couple of runs ) and I’ve just done 2 x 30 min runs for week 9 but then carried on at the end of yesterday’s run to do 5k in 39 mins. Not very speedy but my first 5k since my fractured ankle so I’m pleased.

I had a feeling it was going to be a good run when I broke out the Flamingo leggings!!🤣🤣 ( my daughter has disowned me if I wear them again)

So... the plan is to carry on runnjng for at least 30 mins on alternate days and then start JuJus plan again.

10k here I come ... whoohoo!!!

Although on Saturday I am off to Cornwall to collect 2 4 month old kittens to add to our feline family. So it’s going to be hard to drag myself out from underneath 2 cats and 2 kittens to go and run....

Great job getting back to the 5k, enjoy the road back to 10.

I dunno what your daughters problem is... maybe she’s jealous, you could order her a pair 😂

She won’t wear leggings- says it’s because I have better legs than her ... ( true dat). 🙄

Well done limberlou! Don't listen to the daughter, the flamingos are fab! 😁👍🏃

I think so too!! Thanks

"Regraduated", I'll have to remember that for when I get there :)

I think you should go to see your daughter while wearing the leggings. When she's with friends. Calling out "Cooee! It's me! Your MUM!" 😂

Well done Lou. So glad you’re back on top after your enforced IC stay. And I’m veeeeery tempted by those flamingos! I have ten pairs of leggings and five pairs of capris already - do you think I could get away with some more?🤪

Of course you could!!! My daughter is embarrassed by them but I love them. They make me smile 😀

Well done limberlou! Glad to hear you’re still doing so well. Good luck on your 10k plans next! 😃❤️🏃‍♀️
