W4D3 done

Running is becoming easier. Not easy. But easier. I am running a training session today at work and managed to map the whole thing out in my head while running. It's funny how much clarity your mind has.

Something I realised today is that I'm not very precious around wiping my nose on my shirt sleeve when running. Normally I will always use a tissue but apparently I'm a different person when running.

Speaking of being a different person, I'm on holiday next week and have faithfully packed my running clothes and running belt in full expectation that I'll continue the program when on holiday.

LOST: Jasmine, the girl who used to do nothing on holiday other than laze around.

REWARD: Negotiable

Happy running :)

I wa in menorca for week 7, hot but glorious to run. I just carried water which I happily poured over my head when I got too hot. Have a great time and tell us all about it

Holiday runs are amazing πŸ˜‰ so much more enjoyable when not trying to squeeze a run into a hectic schedule, although I love running so much it’s easy to bump the housework down the priority list. And yes I’m a sleeve nose wiper also..... disgusting but essential πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ im such a hot sweaty mess by the end of a run what’s a little snot in the mix πŸ˜‚β€οΈπŸ˜‚

Snot or sweat, what's the difference at the end of the day? πŸ˜‚

I'm very much looking forward to running any time of the day I like. Not having to squeeze it in before work and being time pressured will be a joy!
