W8 Done in the Sun 😊🌞

The odd mishap along the way this morning - failed to notice the renewed puddles in The Dip so had to run with soggy left shoe. ☹️ And the moat beyond The Bridge has become a sticky quagmire so had to loop round a rather tussocky field track, but got there and home in the end. πŸ˜„ One week to go, I hope!

Am becoming a total Drama Queen about every little ache in case it’s a sign of injury! πŸ˜‚ Still, I think it must be a good sign to realise I’ve started giving names to parts of my regular route.

Trundle on happily (and safely!) everyone. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Well done! I know what you mean about injuries... I've pre-emptively got in the queue for physio at work just in case! I. Am. Finishing. This. Programme! :)

Yep, same here, ooh I have a slight ache in my foot, oh is that rubbing? I think my sock is not quite right, that might lead to something (sock faffage...). Not long now!

Ohhh. You’ve been eavesdropping. πŸ˜‚ Not forgetting: My laces are too loose/tight/tangled. πŸ˜„ We will make it!

Now obsessing over whether to go for a new route next week (I’m running out of paths, literally) or whether that might be a jinx.... πŸ˜‚

Well done on getting this far. I'm wondering exactly the same for week 8. Do I stick to known territory where I basically know where I am in my run by where I am, or do I move to new territory? The dilemmas we have to cope with...
