What a beautiful evening and off I went at 5pm - blimey I was warm, red faced and sweating but that means I’m working hard surely and wanted to push myself just a little bit more. Nearly graduation day and good luck to all of you who are near the end of this amazing journey ! Good luck to my virtual buddy Fiona too...we’ve got this ! Really pleased with my distance as it’s the furthest I’ve got so far and included inclines. Alarm set for Friday ⏰

Good luck to you RRR13 for your graduation run, I know that you can do it, you will be very proud of yourself when you have graduated. 😊

Thanks so much AlMorr for your message, I’m very proud that I have got so far and what an amazing community on here supporting each other through our ups and downs 🏃‍♀️

You’re doing great! A decent pace too. I think we’re all red faced when we run. Well I am! 😂🤷🏻‍♂️ it’s great to get used to inclines as well as declines. It’s fairly flat where I am so you’ve got to go searching for those little hills sometimes. It all helps with our overall gains. Well done you!

Thank you Dave, I don’t normally look at the numbers etc but pleased tonight as furthest run so far, decent pace you say “yipee” thanks. I think that “Larry the Lobster” face will stay with me and keep me company throughout every run😳 Just read your post I hope your knee is on the mend and you can get out and run again soon.

Thank you. Me too! Rest for around 6 weeks I’ve been told. But I guess it’s needed. Well people get too hooked on the numbers and distances etc. Everyone just needs to remember it’s better to get out there and do some exercise than sit on our bums and do nothing! Are you enjoying it all? I’d be telling porky pies if I said I enjoyed every second of running. It’s certainly a rollercoaster ride!

Six weeks rest is a bugger but better to get on the mend and then start a fresh...what about yoga or swimming in the meantime ? Am I enjoying it ? 🤔 sometimes whilst running but what I love is being outside in the fresh air and the feeling of achievement afterwards. There is a much better word to use whilst I’m running but don’t think that’s allowed on here 😂🏃‍♀️
