Week 4 finished with woo hoo

Last run was last Monday then i lost a bit of skin off my foot and limped my way through a week of working every day

arrived home today after a 25 hour stint at work had a cup of tea and changed into shorts

We did a good run and although it seemed slower at the time we travelled the furthest in the half hour than ever before

I converted my fitbit miles and we covered 2.97 k woo hoo

Now to relax and eat.....i shoved a chicken in the oven before we left so it won’t be long

Congratulations on completing week 4 of C25K, 25 hours stint at work sounds nasty, you deserve a good rest, but you went out for a run, wow.

I didn’t want to let a whole week go by without a run

I did get 4 hours sleep but still a tough weekend

Thanks for your response

Thank you, and we did thanks with a huge pile of salad

I love getting home from work putting something in the oven and getting back from a run to find it well on its way to being cooked

There was chicken at work lunch time and hard to resist but can’t run full of roast

I have to confess to roast potatoes and rhubarb crumble too, but my parents are visiting so I made a nice dinner

Not bad but i have one tie that’s swollen and blistered and have antibiotics for infection in it which is why we didn’t run earlier in the week been hobbling a bit
