W1R1: As the title says! I managed to complete my couch to 5k summer 2018 and literally after my first 5k we were pregnant. 18months and with hubby now working from home I have a bit of time to start again! I'm pleased to say I found today's run a lot easier than the first time I started this program which gives me hope! Glad to be back and hopefully some old comrades are still going strong on here! Hello all x

Ha! I literally looked you up on my followers list to see if you’d been back and I’d missed you an hour ago 🀣

Great to see you back running and smiling. Little one must be nearly a year now... time flies! Obviously I still want that Toblerone!

Plenty of people you know still going strong... and some great new VRBs to run with. You know you got this... enjoy the journey back.

Did the old HM thing... then ran for a couple of weeks... slight issue kept me away for 6 weeks but running regularly for a couple of months again now... until this week. This one exercise a day thing means I have to give my puppies their walk, but going to get one run a week in as they get a longer walk with my daughter. All good though, considering.

Wow a HM! Get you! What a fantastic achievement πŸ™‚ also pleased to hear that your niggle hasn't kept you away for too long. Yes the whole one excursion a day is throwing up issues but can't complain!

Was only a niggle in the head... long story, not really for here either... but I got back on it.

HM was Ok... not sure I’d recommend it to you, though... I remember what happened after your first 5k... you may not be ready for quads πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

Eric’s 2 days after... I’m right in the middle, with Rubens Barrichello, who also shares my birth year... I’m older though, I was born before it was midnight in Brazil.

If my mother had got a move on we would share a birthday... I was just after midnight.

Wellllll....he lays down the gauntlet! 😲...ok here we go...Dan Ackroyd, Pamela Anderson, Missy Elliot, Tom Cruise, Huey Lewis (now that’s news isn’t it?!), Kevin Heart....ooh Sylvesta Stallone (nothing Rocky about him!), Ewa Green. Oh dear...my fingers are tired! 🀣🀣🀣 πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†

May is a good month too though. 😁❀️

Talking of all things Rock... Dwayne was born in May too.

Pammy? That’s sounds a little desperate to me 🀣. May concede a draw though... my mother was July too.

Sensible!!😁!! I agree! πŸ€— I have to admit, I did hesitate for a second with Pammy! But she was once all the rage, so I thought I’d go for it! 🀣 with your Mum born in July, I think it’s a fair draw VRB! 🀝❀️

Aye.

I have a good song about Pamela... kid Rock wrote it for her after they split up and she slagged him off in the press... β€œhalf your age”

I was wondering how far this was going to go! πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ I'd have given up at Cantona πŸ˜‚

Was Cantona born in July? 🀣🀣🀣! Aah...just a bit of humour Dee! UNM and I are great VRB pals. I see he’s having the last word. While I gracefully accept the draw!! 🀣🀣🀣❀️

Phahaha I know but I was thinking there may be fisty-cuffs or at least rock, paper, scissor!? You're a very graceful lady!

VRB's are so important now more than ever....I was more excited about being able to post again rather than the run!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ shhh don't tell anyone x

I really hope so! 😍

I got pregnant two weeks in! I managed to keep going until whenever 5m runs comes in and I couldn’t do it. Baby is now 9m old and I’m up to week 6, was going better before Covid19 locked us all in the house! But I managed the 20m run the other day so I’m pretty pleased with that. But must get back to it!
