A bit embarrassing today


Did W6R2 today with my trousers on inside out.We were halfway to the park when I noticed but just kept going!Not looking forward to running for 25 minutes on Wednesday in the park.

😂. Good running... maybe the inside out pants are lucky?

You’ll be just fine in that 25... nice easy start and into your happy rhythm... you can do it.

Love it... clothes on inside out are lucky!!! Go you!!



I did 20 mins last week on the treadmill and found it very easy.The 25 minute run tomorrow will be at the park with hills.I'm determined to do it,will start off slow.My son came yesterday and he was walking when I was "running",he has such long legs!It's great to hear everyone's comments,the support is great on this forum.


I went to a class a few weeks ago with my leggings on inside out. A nice lady whispered in my ear to tell me. I went in the toilets to put them on the right way!!😆


Surely that’s the latest fashion? 😄


LOL! ☺

In my early days I used to carry a bandanna in my belt bag to wipe sweat away from my eyes. As well as being totally unfit, temps go over 100f here in summer and very humid.

Anyway, one morning as I lumbered around the crowded park, I reach in, half blinded, pull out the bandanna and start wiping my eyes in front of everyone.

Except it wasn't a bandanna.

My damn kid had sneaked in a pair of pink frilly knickers instead.

Talk about being mortified when running! 😂😂😂😂😂

Don't worry about the 25 minutes btw. You might have a few "practice" find before achieving it, but no way is it unattainable, if you made it this far it's like every other stage you've done that is an increase in the previous one. I used to be so convinced that each new time would permanently knacker me when I started - but should have looked at it all as "progress, not perfection" instead of "all or nothing every run!"

Wishing you many happy miles in your future :)
