Couch to 5K
Hey, don’t apologise about writing a long post - you should read mine! 😅😅
You’re right though, everyone on here is so different, but we’re all connected by our love of running. Isn’t it fab? ❤️
My mum has dementia too. She’s 94 and lives in a lovely care home. I can’t run to it though, it’s a 30 minute drive! I take my dog to see her all the time which all the residents like. Hope your mum is ok. I bet she’s happy to see you. ❤️
I bet people don't see that often , someone jogging to the hospital best way to stay out if it. Anyway well done you and hope your mum is ok 😊
My mother has just been diagnosed with dementia, it's atypical, so very uncertain times for us all. Running is actually helping us both, we can you just focus on the moment, running/walking together. Like cheeky says, don't apologise, thank you.
Hope is all okay with your mam it’s an awful disease but I’m sure with her family around her and your support she will be in good hands good luck and happy healthy running to you x🏃♀️
Could have been worse... she could have misheard “I’ve just been jogging!” 🤣
There will be good and hard days with your mum, as I’m sure you know... enjoy and embrace those great moments. Great job getting the runs done with a lot going on... I hope the you time helps.
Ahhhh bless you, I bet she was really pleased to see even without the dog! Well done on your jog to see her. And yes, we are all different, I think when I tell folk I run they must think" what!! YOU run, mwahahahah " but that could also be a misconception. I hope you enjoy many more jogs and lovely visits with your mum.xx
What a brilliant way to get in a run. Those hospitals are lethally hot, aren’t they? 🥵 I used to be a nurse, so have good experience! I bet your mum was so pleased to see you, even though she was worried about you getting into trouble about the dogs! 😁
Good for you jogging to the hospital! Tricky trying to cool down in such a warm place afterwards though! Sorry to hear your mum is in hospital & has dementia. Running is wonderful for your sanity and I hope it will help you through life's ups and downs as it did in similar circumstances and still does for me. 🙂
Keep on going, running helps with life's ups and downs.
It's great that you visit her, hot and sweaty or not.
Lol, well you made me smile. My Nan is 92 with hearing aids, the amount of funny misunderstandings we have, if she can't remember something she says just Doodle it when she wants me to look on Google, even when it's something about her past that Google would know nothing about 😂...to be fair she hasn't really a clue what it is! Glad you're still managing a run when you can and hope your Mum gets out of the hospital soon 👍🙂
