Back in the groove- happy happy happy πŸ˜ƒ

What a fantastic run I’ve had this morning. Having really struggled to get into a regular running routine for the past month, today the gremlins were waiting for me when I woke up. 😣

After UnfitNoMore asked me yesterday what today’s run would be, I’d decided that I would definitely do my best to run this morning but because of other commitments I had to do it early.

I’ve lost two nights sleep this week so when I woke up at 7am the gremlins were urging me to catch up on my sleep but my lovely husband knowing how much I really wanted to run gave up his bed to come with me πŸ’•

And so we drove to the res and set off on our warm up walk. Boy is it chilly in these Pennine hills. 😨

I had planned to warm up then run for 1k, walk for a couple of minutes, run another 1k and then see how I felt, but after the first 1k I didn’t want to stop, and that feeling lasted... and lasted. In the end I had to stop at 3.6k because I needed to get home but I think that was the best run I’ve ever done in terms of how much I enjoyed it while I was doing it. πŸ€—

The running bug is definitely back. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈI’m going to have to be very creative and determined to fit three runs a week in at the moment but I did it this morning so it is possible.

Thanks to all of you runners out there whose posts have reminded me how good it feels to run. You’re all stars 🌟 🌟

Enjoy your weekend runs one and all πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ
