Or perhaps that should be jogging on! Sore back from a day with the grandkids, niggly knees so umming and ahing. Should I run, shouldn't I run, can I do 28 mins if I'm not 100%? Well it was a beautiful autumn afternoon and off i went. With Laura and my running playlist at the ready, it was great! First 5 minutes tough as always, then breathing sorted, into my stride, slow and steady, finish strong. Feel great, each run amazes me, C25k is great. Back and knees better for the exercise. 22 runs down 5 runs to graduation!

Way to go. Great day for being out there wasn't it. Couldn't believe I was out there in shorts and t-shirt.

amazing day. Hopefully when I do my first parkrun in December it will be 17 degrees....but probably not😊


Great job... enjoy that 2nd 28... soon be into the victory lap.


Well done you! I empathise...our wonderful Grandchildren give us a really good workout!

On you go...!

Just been watching some weight lifting YouTube training for deadlifts - gotta remember those hip hinges!! Can't beat the feeling of having my two year old granddaughter laughing as she rides on my shoulders

Best feeling in the world
